Went here with my boyfriend end of august and beginning of september. Wouldnt have booked the place if my trip to the canary islands wasnt cancelled because of the covid situation. Food is really good, really nice employees aswell. The cleaning can better, especially the toilets in and round the building. We recommend this place and probably come back.

There's nothing bad to say about this hotel to be honest. As we're in the middle of coronavirus pandemic I was concerned about the hygiene procedures but they were spot on at Glaros. The rooms we're clean, housekeeping came twice during our 5 day stay and we had our towels changed 3 times. There's nothing particularly special about the rooms but they are nice, comfortable and what I expected from the pictures I saw. We had a seaview room that had a delightful view over the ocean especially at sunrise & sunset. The sound of waves can get quite loud, as the sea at that point can get pretty vigorous but when you're in the room with the door closed it's very quiet and doesn't disturb at all. Breakfast has a decent selection so you won't get bored and tastes as good as breakfast can taste. Currently they have staff to serve all food, due to coronavirus, even though it is set out buffet style. There wasn't that many people at breakfast at the times when I went so this was never an issue and the space was always kept clean and tidy. The pool area, restaurant and sun terraces were all well kept and clean, more than enough sunbeds for everyone, although I'd imagine in normal times it might be different but I enjoyed the reduced number of guests as it made my stay so much more pleasant and relaxing. The staff were always pleasant, helpful and not intrusive and the other guests were all really chilled. Some of the facilities were closed, like the gym & spa, but this was to be expected during the pandemic. The hotel is well placed to get to all the hustle & bustle of Hersonissos; being just off the main road with many shops, bars and eateries while also being on the coast path where you can walk along to "the strip" for more bars and restaurants within 5 mins. Other resorts like Stalis and Malia are really close as well, about 10 mins for Stalis & 20 mins for Malia (we hired a quad bike to get around but a taxi to these places cost about 15 euros). I found this hotel last minute (and booked the night before we travelled) so I was hoping I hadn't booked a nightmare and I was happy with what we got. All in all this is a good hotel that I can't really fault, at decent price and I'd recommend to anyone.

Had a great honeymoon but found the hotel staff to be quite brash. Food was absolutely delicious and there are plenty of places to visit. I’d recommend going to Crete but not too sure about this hotel.
