Me and my husband stayed in this hotel from 27/6 till 7/7 of this year! About the Hotel very good and polite staff good quality food not a big variety of stuff but very tasty always.Very quiet during the night hours! Awesome location just 50 meters from the sea! A lot of Touristic shops around and traditional greek taverna!

It's a nice hotel , well localized, with friendly staff. All of them speed russian. About food I can only say that it's tasty but you don't have a big choice. There are no fruits (*just at lunch). If you want to travel cheep -it's a good choice. Been there from 15.06.2016-19.06.2016.

Though Creta Residence was not a 5-Star Resort, it was a good property that was steps from the ocean. The hotel manager and the cleaning staff were VERY friendly during our weeklong stay! They were wonderful and accommodating...even with the language barrier. Our room had 3 twin beds, scratchy sheets, a very dingy shower curtain, and a shower that had... More

The worse hotel ever.Dirty badroom, kitchen and restaurant dirty and smells horribly.Poor choice of food.Food cold.Drinks in plastic, not glas.Manager not friendly.Wifi doesnt work.Dirty windows,carpets...just everything.Better to book some apartment in near area and choose restaurants and bars around- they are a lot there.Will be cheaper and more comfortable.We are very disapointed about Creta Residence.

The hotel is not anything like the pictures. It's VERY old and hasn't been renovated in many years.. I would not characterize this as a 3 star hotel at all. More like a 1 star hotel. The room was very small and the bed was below standard. We had to put towels to lie on because the madras was so... More

At first, the creta residence hotel is the ultimate combination of greek sea and perfect hospitality. The service was exceptionally helpful and always willing to give us advice on where and how to travel around the island. Moreover, it is worth mentioning that the rooms were always clean and perfected and the breakfast offered was marvelous. In addition in my... More

So when we booked this place we were made to believe we would have an amazing view of the pool area! This was not the case, we had a view of a small road and wasted land! We thought that it would be okay and we could deal with that. However the staff apart from one evening staff member never... More
