We booked Creta Star but got a transfer to Creta Royal. We enjoyed everything: the quiet garden with sunbeds, the pool, nice room, the quality of the meals (fresh orange juice at breakfast), the beach, very friendly staff. If you are looking for a relaxed holiday this is the place to be - no screaming kids, enough space around the... More

We're back nearly 3 weeks from our second trip of the Summer to the little piece of heaven that is the Creta Royal. The staff of this hotel is what sets it apart from other hotels we have stayed at in Crete. The rooms are clean and functional and serve their purpose but it is the stunning location and excellent...

Just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel (9th to 23rd August 2016) and as a non smoker I would not book this hotel again, we were told Greek policy is non smoking in side smoke anywhere you like out side and this is the policy of this hotel. The main restaurant does have a non smoking area... More

We have arrived at the Creta Royal yesterday, the 26th of August and have since then been amazed by the quality of the hotel and its amenities, the dedication of the staff and the peaceful atmosphere. The hotel is truly adult-only (with even a few noisy kids being asked to return to the Creta Star hotel next door which allows... More

The majority of the Staff were pleasant and very hard working. Restaurant offered a wide variety of food. Location close to the beach was fantastic. The hotel residents were mainly French or Russian who often stared at young british couples. The rooms were extremely dated and the shower didn't work properly. There was no iron in the room and we... More

Spent a delightful 11 days at the Creta Royal. This was our first venture in the Adult All Inclusive world and now we will probably never go back to a family holiday. The hotel staff whole intention was to make sure your holiday was memorable, this was beyond our expectations. I generally never want to go back to the same... More

We arrived in the middle of the night due to the French air traffic controllers and were very thankful for the plates of food and bottle of wine that had been left for us! Morning arrived and although our booking was for a mountain view, we had no view of a mountain but the garden view was lovely and 1105... More
