Travelers' Choice
The mythical realm of King Minos, blessed by the gods of the sun and the sea, is today as proud as a fortress and as welcoming as an embrace. It is also home to a sumptuous palace that makes an ideal destination for any family holiday. At the Knossos Royal Village, time moves at a different pace: in elegant and comfortable rooms with incomparable views, in the azure sea and crystal-clear pools, at superb sports facilities and matchless restaurants, the pleasure and relaxation never end.

Arrived 9th October until 16th October 2021 Reception staff are so friendly and welcoming. The room is spotless and very clean Lots of things to do on the beach… jet skiing, parasailing, hoverboarding etc. Also have mini golf, a small arcade/playroom room and park for children. Hersinosso Town was only a 20-25min walk or €8 in a taxi and the town was so lovely for anyone who likes to venture out. Every single member of staff was so polite and caring! The restaurant staff were so kind and friendly especially Maria, Fanioka and the other waiters and waitresses. George the bar man around the pool was so funny, kind and friendly! He also made the best cocktails 🍹 I also can’t thank the lovely Paula&the team for serving drinks at the main bar every night amazing service. Maids do an amazing job every time can’t thank them enough! Everyone there is so lovely and polite! I’ll definitely be coming back to this stunning place so grateful I got to meet them all! Room 455 Megan&Jake Thank you everyone at Aldemar Knossos Royal for making my holiday amazing! Xx

Just had a weeks stay at the Knossos and had a brilliant time,we had a little problem with our room and the lovely Guest Relations Christina moved us without any fuss and is a credit to the hotel . We found the food in the hotel very good a varied choice and tasty could of been hotter at times.Walked along the coast to Hersonissis took about 40 mins but it was worth it. But one thing stud out about this hotel is it’s staff they are amazing always smiling friendly and very hard working. Special mentions to Paula at the main bar,Jorge at the pool bar Rula at the beach bar the Guest Relation girls Christina and Anna and all the catering staff for making our holiday a one to remember....

Thanks a lot to Afroditi & George Michalakis from the main restaurant! They gave me the best service every time I came. Aftoditi is the best table manager I've ever encountered in any of my vacations. This is my 6th visit here and I plan to visit again as soon as I can.

Nice stay after a few hiccups where Anna from Guest Relations did a fantastic job at sorting everything out. She is a credit to the hotel. The food was ok the rooms were ok the hotel was nice for a family holiday. If you plan on staying here ask at reception about trips out the hotel is a bit of a walk to Hersonissos, also speak to reception regarding any issues they are more than happy to help.

Response from Repmgr, Reputation Manager at Aldemar Knossos Royal
Responded 3 days ago
Dear anthonywZ4209HJ Thank you very much for dedicating time to review Aldemar Knossos Royal. Let me express on behalf of the management and the staff of the hotel our gratitude for your loyalty to our Resort. Our VIP Sharing pool rooms have a size that doesn't allow us to provide high quality accommodation to our guests. We try to keep certain standards and it proved difficult to fit a third bed there and due to several complains we had to change it. We are really sorry for letting you down with this change. Let me suggest you to contact our reservation manager in regards of possibilities we have for your family for the next year visit. We have beautiful spacious Junior villas with shared pool and family rooms that you might find comfortable to spend summer vacations 2022. I remain at your disposal for any extra information you might need. And we still hope to see your family with us next year! With kind regards, Tamarova Alina Reputation Manager Aldemar Resorts
