Hotel's Favorite
This is genuinely the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. The views are so beautiful and the beach behind 4 yards from the pool is such a treat. The sea is shallow quite a way out so you can go out with children and feel safe. The rooms are spotless and lovely - the beds were SO comfortable too and if you need anything the staff will help you immediately. It truely is stunning and the staff are so kind and helpful, even organising a bag of rice for my wet phone to dry out! They also take Covid extremely seriously, everyone is wearing masks and visors, taxis are temp tested before they come on site and there is hand sanitizer everywhere. You really feel safe in that regard. Also Crete itself are being really good. You can't even go into a little gift shop without wearing a mask. It's a perfect spot because you have Malia a short walk away if you want to 'party' or old Malia if you want to visit the most gorgeous restaurants, but being out the way enough that you can totally avoid it if it's not your thing. Also Heraklion is very easy to get to if you want to do some shopping or see it's history, as there is a bus stop nearby, with a ticket costing around €3. All in all, I could not recommend this hotel more! Perfect for families, couples or friends.

The hotel is located in the very famous location in crete just 30 min from the heraklion airport. We spent here 2 weeks and we had amazing experience. The food was very tasty with various theme nights like greek, cretan and italian, also the lobster night was very nice. We had beachfront Junior Suites, very nice and elegant rooms right on the beach with its own garden and sunbeds. The room cleaning was on top. We also had a private dinner, fantastic experience with sunset, private waiter and very upscaled food menu. We very high recommend this hotel, it has everything for great experience.

I DON'T RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL IF YOU ARE A SINGLE LADY I stayed in this hotel with my 9 y.o. son in July 2021. I booked the hotel through the Travel Agent who recommended it to me. Overall it was a nice place, as everyone else mentioned the staff members are generally friendly and look after the hotel well. Although, the behaviour of a member of staff, namely a waiter called Nikos was very disappointing and made me feel tense and uncomfortable during my holiday. I stayed in the hotel with my son and without a partner. First, the waiter called Nikos approached me in a friendly manner and started asking where am I from and all the general questions that are typical for a small-talk conversation. Although, the next day he made me quite a derogatory offer to see him after his shift. (facepalm 100 times). Oh my God. I never expected that the guests in such a reputable 5-star hotel will be targeted by the staff member. SHAME ON YOU, the hotel MANAGER if this behaviour is considered possible within the corporate "culture". Following the incident, I complained to the travel agent and the manager. He apologised. The member of staff did not liaise with me anymore, but I kept feeling stressed and tense during my holiday.

Dear Julia K, First of all, we would like to thank you for your time in reviewing your stay in our hotel. We have to admit that we were surprised to read your review. As you mentioned, after meeting the Manager of the Hotel the issue was solved immediately after him being informed that you didn’t feel comfortable with the waiter and the waiter was immediately removed from the working space where he could have contact with you. This is the reason why we consider your review not fair, as you arbitrate your whole experience in our hotel from an accident, however, we appreciate a lot your subjective comments and we would like to apologize if we have not succeeded in making your stay memorable. In this point we would like to highlight that our team is not only well trained to offer the highest level of service, but they are genuinely attentive and work hard to make sure that each and every guest is having a wonderful time and is feeling safe in our hotel. It is not a coincidence that all TripAdvisor reviews are mentioning our outstanding customer service. We are sure that we will have the chance in the near future to have you as a client and offer you our best services and attention. Thank you once again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you again at the Alexander Beach soon. With our best regards from sunny Crete, Alexander Beach Hotel & Village Resort Team
