Just returned from a fantastic 2 week holiday in Creta Palace with our two daughters (6 & 8 years old). The staff are the best thing about this hotel - everyone was always smiling & nothing was ever too much trouble. Our girls loved the climbing wall - and had a wonderful time with Dimitri & Emma who turned them... More

Excellent and friendly staff, excellent SPA facilities and treatments. The hotel rooms and common areas were clean, but not the common restrooms. A/C is noise. The pool was also clean. In general very good staff and service.

We spent the last week of July with our 1 year old baby at Creta Palace and were very satisfied with the experience. I picked the hotel after reading reviews on tripadvisor mentioning its child friendliness, good service and good food and because we wanted a place we could spend most of our vacation without leaving the hotel.

The hotel looks a little bit old. At arrival, the room did not correspond to what was booked and only after several requests the room was changed. Still the new room did not fully correspond to the website description. The main restaurant is quite busy. The food is excellent, the same for the beach. Nevertheless, a better cleaning of the...

The hotel is an excellent family destination offering many facilities and activities for all. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was great with an enormous spread of very good food. Access to the sea is very easy, however one has to head down very early as guests take up the deck chairs before sunrise.

A beautiful location, straight on the beach. The hotel itself is very fancy, has a very nice architecture that has a Tunisian feel. The rooms are perfect, big enough, the beds are conformable. It is very modern, and surprisingly chic, but simple. It's very family friendly, with activities for kids and a kids pool, while still maintaining a fancy feel.... More
