“Nice Apartment Overlooking the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

We had a nice apartment overlooking the beach, with a small terrace, but most rooms do not have a sea-view.

The property is in a quieter part of the tourist area, but still well located for restaurants and bars. If you don't like the the Alia's facilities, there are plenty of other options.

There's a small, but pleasant pool, and the staff are friendly.

Hersonissos (and Crete in general) was devoid of tourists at the end of May 2011, so noise levels were minimal, so it probably gets noisier than we saw it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea. You see the beach, and the sunsets are lovely.

In general, this is a very good hotel:

Location: excellent! next to the main street (with restaurants and bars) but still relatively quiet.

Noise: the level of noise depends on your room location & neighbours. We had a side sea view, and therefore, could still hear the noise from the busy street; however, those who had the sea view rooms did not hear any noise. In addition, as there are many young people/groups of friends in this hotel - you might hear noise from your neighbours...

Room size: we had a 'superior apt' for 4 people max. Apartment has 1 bedroom (with 2 beds), kitchen, shower+toilet, living room (with 2 sofas/beds) and a balcony. Rooms with sea view have more space.

Room cleanliness: Good (and I really have high standards). It was cleaned on a daily basis. However, shower is old (check in the picture) - it should be changed as it is not in line with the overall standards. Kitchen is modern and clean.

Rooms include safe, AC and kitchen appliances. Towels are old (should be replaced urgently by the hotel!)

Breakfast: it was comfortable to have it included, however for 5 eur you could get much more elsewhere... menu was fixed (no choice): coffee, orange juice (not fresh but syrup), egg, cheese and ham. Basically, it was the same every day :-( and strangely, the portion was even getting smaller every day.

Dinner: we did not take it for the following reasons: 1. there is enough choice around 2. value for money - you need to pay 11 eur per person while you could choose up to 8.5 eur from the dinner menu -> strange?!

Staff: very friendly and helpful! it was really a pleasure :-)

To summarize, we had a great holiday in Crete! This is an excellent destination :-)

Room Tip: Get a room with sea view (very beautiful & quiet)

We had a great time at Alia Club. Kind and helpful personnel. Good and well kept rooms. A great location at the main street, close to the beach. We booked a single room apartment. Close to the pool few steps to the beach Restaurant very special with such a good food and good price!!! and very frendly staff in the bar and restaurant. I LOVE IT!

The staff in the hotel was very unfriendly. Besides they were unwilling to help the guests (even with simple requests for extra towels and willingness to pay for them).
The food in the restaurant is often burned and of a poor quality.
The location, however, is simply great.

We were very happy with the apartment size and amenities. The staff was very friendly and helpful whenever needed. The restaurant has the absolute best garlic bread I have ever tasted. And when we go back in 2010, we will be eating there again.
