Dear Susan, thank you for choosing Grecotel Creta Palace. Our summer season goes until the beginning of November. Therewith our pools will be open as well as most of our a la carte Restaurants. Furthermore we would like to inform you, that not all Kids Programmes will be available such as the summer camps, since they refer to the high season. Kind regards Katerina Axarli Communications Manager

In reality the prices for drinks are not cheap, but on a par with what you would expect for a 5* hotel.

Greetings from Creta Palace! It is possible to change the half board to a la carte dining with a discount of 15 euro per adult. The Zeus and Amalthia will be closed due to the weather temperatures. The Asian Restaurant will be operating until the 25th of October. Our Barbarossa a la carte fish restaurant will be available until the Hotel's closing. Kind regards

I didn’t travel with the bus, but I saw a bus station near the hotel. You can ask for the bus number in the airport and the driver for the station, you should mention the name of the hotel !
