Booked this hotel due to the great reviews. We were told it was the best hotel in Herakleion, and it certainly is. We were family of four and spent 8 nights here. Very close to the airport; cost 11 euros for taxi transfer. Hotel itself is modern with good amenities. The rooms were good and spacious and bathroom luxurious with... More

We just stayed 1 night at Aquila Atlantis and we liked. Breakfast was very good and staff really friendly in recepcion and restaurant. The only negative side was the pool on the 6th floor that is really small and far to be a 5 stars pool.The location is great just next to the main shops streets. We recommend this hotel... More

This hotel is excellent. The food was amazing, the staff kind and welcoming. Spa treatments are top notch. The only down side is a lack of view (the hotel is situated in the city center, and a lot of rooms just face people's houses and clothing lines) and the fact that the pool is very small.

Stayed there for one night for a business event organised in the hotel. Above average room with Heraklion port view. Breakfast was nice, a typical breakfast for a 5-star hotel. Staff very friendly and ready to help. Close (walking distance) to the city centre and just 7 mns from the airport (taxi-drive).

The hotel is OK but not any more than that. First annoyance was the extra payment for a 'harbour view' which actually meant a room on the side of the hotel overlooking the bus station with the ferry terminal in the background. There was a balcony and you could make out the sea but a harbour view it was not...... More

We stayed here for three nights and could not find fault with the Aquila Atlantis. Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Hotel amenities are good and it is close to main attractions plus transport hubs. Breakfast buffet has excellent choice including some local delicacies. Will definitely stay at the Aquila Atlantis when we return to Heraklion.
