Stayed at one of the Royal Villas, first class accommodation, very hard to fault. Breakfast at the nearby beach restaurant was simply superb, sparkling wine, prosecco, freshly squeezed orange, apple or grapefruit juice, as well as freshly ground coffee, nothing was a problem to the staff, whether you wanted an omelette, poached eggs, fried eggs or a boiled egg, the...

Even though it's supposed to be a five star hotel, it's pretty poor and old looking. The staff is nice and helpful. there are many pools but some are salty. Especially the infants one… The food is diversed but they don't excell the "clever" dishes (all the sea food was disappoining). They keep low maintenance of the rooms- ants, rugged... More

We spent two weeks in August at this hotel. When we arrived we were checked in and taken to our adjoining rooms in a golf buggy. The porter carried our heavy suitcases up the stairs to our rooms. We had two rooms connected by an adjoining door. The rooms were kept clean throughout our stay. On our first night as... More

Just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Knossos Royal. We stayed in a villa overlooking the sea with its own pool and the views were beautiful. The hotel's amenities were good and the food was excellent. In particular there were 2 members of staff who went over and above to ensure that we were well cared for. These... More

We have recently returned from a two-week visit to the Aldemar Knossos Royal Hotel (9-23 August), visiting as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children, 11 and 7). We had a lovely relaxing holiday. The hotel staff were very welcoming and the Knossos Royal proved a great base for exploring the area and the Minoan history of Crete,... More

This was my first trip to an all inclusive hotel and I would say I was underwhelmed on the whole. The hotel is by no means a 5* and I feel the brochures should be changed to represent this. The rooms are showing signs of wear but saying that it is completely aesthetics and it is functional with air conditioning... More

This was our second visit to the Royal Knossos this year, the first time we've gone back to the same resort & will definitely go back again! The food is good, great variety at both breakfast & dinner times. Food is replenished frequently & is plentiful. Would however be nice to see more Greek specialities on offer. The snack bar... More

Enjoyed 2weeks all inclusive with my wife and 9 year old son. The room was basic, but as most of the time we were at the pool, this was fine. All the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, in particular Maria in the main restaurant looked after us like we were family. The facilities such as the swimming pools... More
