Just arrived back from a week Golden Bay Hotel. The rooms, bar en pool are literally next to the beach with a great view! The staff is friendly and the food is good. Also compared to the other hotels in the surrounding Golden Bay Hotel stand outs due to the high quality of the buildings and rooms. I can really... More

This hotel with apartments has been recently refurbished to a pretty high standard and we couldn't really fault it for the price we paid for the holiday booked with Thomson's. We had checked it out on Tripadvisor before booking and were worried because of one really negative comment about the area but were pleasantly surprised. The shower room in particular... More

Several of us attending a conference nearby at the Cretaquarium stayed here for several nights. What struck me first was the view. It was pretty cool to step outside of my room, either through my front door, or from the corner of my deck, and see the Mediterranean Sea. The deck also faced inward toward the rest of the layout,...

We first landed in Heraklion and because it was late, decided to stay at Golden Bay Hotel. It was close. The only problem was finding it. After 3 phone calls and very good help from the hotel, we finally arrived. Don't be discouraged as you drive through the street to get to it. They are not the best but people... More

The staff here cannot do enough for you. I have stayed here three times and have always enjoyed my stay. My mother is diabled and Rania and her staff always go out of their way to help us. The WiFi isn't great, but I think this is due to the local infrastructure and not down to the hotel. The place... More

I was happy to finish my week at Golden Bay on Friday as I have to say that the service in the Taverna restaurant was amongst the worst I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. I travelled as a solo guest and although I used the Hotel restaurant every day I found myself constantly having to ask for service.... More
