'I have recently returned from a holiday in Crete staying in The Pilot Beach Hotel. It was a very special holiday, celebrating my 80th birthday with my husband and all our family, 14 of us in all. A magic time and a dream come true and certainly made possible by the caring, thoughtful and charming staff. From the top management... More

The hotel is generally ok. But do not expect any personal touch or anything above the average standard. Good things : the food and the crew in restaurants . The view on the beach side . Bad things : we had loud tractor works on the beach every morning at 7:30 am , just 5 meter from our terrace. Thus,... More

Lovely room with all mod cons and the sea view was breathtaking. We were bed and breakfast and evening meal and the food was of a high standard for buffet style,very fresh and well cooked and something to suite all tastes. The drinks were expensive and because of the location you are a captive audience. Entertainment was family orientated. The... More

We had a great stay at the hotel in Jule 2016 - the service was perfect as well as food, views, pools and garden. One should better choose the Greek restaurant Ariadne instead of the second floor main buffet-restaurant for dinner as Ariadne has an optimal buffet variety and provides haute cuisine for main dish and it is way less...

International resort mostly frequentented by Russian people. Ideal for families with children. Wonderful pools, one of them with fountains and water toys, another one near the beach, with an incredible perspective. Good restaurants, with a lot of choice. I suggest to rent a car, whether to go to/from Chania airport or to visit the island. My best choice in Crete.

Deciding to treat ourselves and spend a week at a swish all inclusive resort, after much research we booked in at Pilot Beach, seemingly at the upper end of Cretan resorts. TBH we were expecting something luxurious but chilled and welcoming like in the Maldives or Sri Lanka, unfortunately Pilot Beach can't hold up a candle to those places. The... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful holiday here in May. The hotel is excellent, the staff helpful and friendly. The food is excellent, good variety and with different restaurants to choose from. Very easy access to the beach which is probably the cleanest we have seen in Crete. Take a bus (very close to the hotel) into Rethymnon or... More

Our first impression of this resort was somewhat spoiled due to our room not being ready. Now, I appreciate that things can crop up and I understand that, what I was annoyed at was the laid back attitude to this. There was no apology, we were just told to return to reception at 9.30 the following morning to get the... More

This is a large resort, be prepared to walk a lot. The best bit is the long sandy beach with clear shallow water. A blue flag beach. The hotel messed up our booking twice. No room to start with, then a night in the emergency room next to the delivery door, very noisy at 5am. We were moved to a... More
