Staying at Palmera Sea Side Hotel is more than a pleasure, actually is a delight. Everything is clean, in fact spotless. Very well organised and trained stuff, smiling more than your best friends. And being even more helpful, be cause your best friends might speak English, but, for sure, they know no greek... Best Sommelier I have seen in years, best Ober...and, yes...a sad love story with the Chef...I met him 25 kilograms to late...poor me... A romantic beach, a big Sun Garden...well...a place to remember and for sure a first rate option for your next holyday. I will come back...

Do not hesitate to choose this hotel! We were traveling from Austria. It was a late night flight so the check in was after midnight and was smood and effortless. Be prepared to pay local tax in advance (3 Eur /night) First night we were staying in the room with a sea view and all the rest nights in a room with a garden view. If I can give you advice- choose one overlooking the garden. It was far quieter room. It was on the first floor (no.701) so we could easily jump in for whatever we needed. Nevertheless, there is an elevator. Location: best in Hersonissos (parallel to main streat and located on promenade, it is very close to all restaurants and clubs, but again isolated). The beach is not like in continental Greece so be prepared (I suggest rubber swim shoes). It is a little bit narrow and stony and it is always windy with waves. Sun beds are on your expense. Rooms: small but modern, clean every day (although not supplemented daily by hygiene toileteries) and every other day complementary water. We have had balkon with sitting set which we used every morning and night. Bed very comfortable, sheets changed twice and towels on two days. There are towels for garden but not for seaside. Food: perfect combination Greek-Turkish-continental. Breakfast: hot and cold drinks (American coffee, tea, juices, water, milk, yogurt), eggs prepared in 5 different ways, sweets, ham, salami, cheese, salads (Russian, French, Greek), olives, tomatoes, cucumber, croissaint, several kinds of bread, pitas, pancakes, corn flakes, mousli, fruit.... Dinner: A fantastic selection of local dishes with great veriety of vegetables and meat. Meat-fisch, pork, lamb, weal. Soup every day as well as fruits and desserts. Drinks on your expence (bottle of 1 l water- 3 Eur, glass of wine 3,5, beer 4). In the middle of our stay, it was a windy day and it was a red flag on the seaside (swimming forbidden) so we decided to go on a trip to Knossos/Heraklion. Bus station is very near the hotel and we went to Heraklion by bus (6,6 Eur for two adults) and then straight away to Knossos in the morning while it is not too hot. That was best decision ever! There you can buy a combined ticket for Knossos and Archaeological museum in Heraklion which we visited on our trip back to Hersonissos. Combined ticket is 15 Eur/adult and can be purchased in Knossos.

Me and my best friend just have returned from our holiday at Palmera beach. We look delighted by our journey. The stuff is very friendly(especially Alin and Andrei who were the dream team) and also helpful, we’ve booked a seaview room. Initially, we’ve received a slide sea view room but this misunderstanding was immediate solved. The food was varied and delicious, except the sea food. As a bad thing, the only one I can notice was the towels were changed once every two days. Best regards from “the twins of Venezuela” 😂😂

Just returned from spending 7 nights at this hotel. This hotel has everything you need. Best location in Hersonissos also. Away from the bars and near plenty of restaurants. So no noise on a night. We had a side room, so heard nothing. The best thing about this hotel is most definitely the location. Right on the beach front. The views of the sea are beautiful! Yes there is a tax to pay on arrival. 3€ per night for adults. No air conditioning to pay for ( previous posts have mentioned there is a charge) maybe they charge outside of the season) Free beds on the grass area. There are no beds around the pool( seating area only) You’ll be happy enough on the grass. Pool is small; but enough to cool you down. Most people head to the beach anyway. Prices do differ as you walk along. Most charge €6 per set per day. Some can even be €10. Was happy enough with the room(standard room) although didn’t look like the room on their website. Quite small. Bathroom small (shower room) so can get quite messy But wasn’t an issue. Our maid was excellent. Beds made every day. Towels changed if you left them out to be changed. Very clean! This hotel is very modern. And yes food does get repetitive. But the soup and bread buns in particular were my favourite! Male waiters are a lot more pleasant. Michael in particular. Very attentive and friendly. We didn’t eat in the Palmera restaurant overlooking the ocean. Was quite pricey. You do get discount if you stay at Palmera. But only 10%. Seemed a bit low to me. Would suggest 20%, then I think more from the hotel would use it. As there are plenty of other restaurants, which we chose to dine in instead. Always good deals on for lunch. Can’t fault this place at all. Would definitely stay here again. It’s the location! Wow! All the restaurants overlook the sea! It’s breathtaking.

Great service in every aspect. The rooms were very nice, cleaned on a daily basis, fresh towels, top notch air conditioning and despite the fact that it’s situated in the center of Hersonissos, very quiet at night (mind you there are clubs all around and lots of restaurants bustling with people). The food was excellent, the staff professional, friendly and very attentive to the needs of the patrons. Prices are fair and quite low in comparison to the high quality of services. Has a private small beach nearby with all the small quirks that count. Highly recommend it!
