This is a small. Amity run hotel, very relaxing, away from the bustle of life. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, making you feel very welcome. The rooms are comfortable, with air conditioning, and great views. About a mile down hill to Ag. Pelagia, with regular buses, and plenty of taxis to get you back again!... More

We were looking for a hotel close to Heraklion for a couple of nights before setting off island hopping. Having been to Crete several times before we were looking for somewhere to unwind and the Happy Cretan fitted the bill perfectly. The staff were so wonderful and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fantastic with freshly squeezed orange... More

Whilst we arrived a night we couldn't have been looked after. Greeted with drinks like we were long lost friends (first time!) Rooms are modern and enough (not huge) and views and pool are great. Looking forward to the massage and beauty treatment tomorrow.

Myself and my boyfriend visited Happy Cretan about a month ago and loved it so much! The staff are so lovely and happy to do anything for guests. Always working hard and always have a smile on their face! We stayed in one of the best rooms in the hotel, with our own private hot tub and the most amazing... More

We travelled from the Azores to Crete and stayed for a week at the Happy Cretan Suites. Everything was excellent! The staff, the room, the food, the pool, everything! I hope we can go back someday! Thank you for making us feel at home!

Just returned from a fantastic couple of weeks staying at the Happy Cretan Suites. We loved the quiet location high up on the hill overlooking the sea. 15 minute walk to the beach of Agia Pelagia (may be a bit far for some but we liked being away from the noisy beach. The room was great with a lovely view... More

Very nice hotel, stayed here last summer. Amazing views and we also opted for a upgraded room with hot tub on the balcony which was worth it! Pool area is lovely also, very close to two coves which have few bars and shops. A great way to see the views of crete was to hire a quad bike which was... More

Just 5 minutes driving distance from the best beaches of Agia Pelagia, but in a quiet spot. Nice and convenient rooms with independent entrance. Free parking available. I recommend second floor rooms, if possible

Returned yesterday from a week's stay at the Happy Cretan Suites. Have been to Agia Pelagia twice before have loved the resort but the accommodation has let it down. This time we looked carefully at the tripadvisor reviews and booked a superior suite. Best move we ever made with regard to holidays; room was very spacious comfortable, extremely well equipped...

Went last week of the season in October 2015. Beautiful location with great sea views. Had a 2 bed suite which was perfect . Stone balcony with fabulous sea views. The pool area was beautiful, spotlessly clean and cared for but sadly the weather had turned and it was too cold and windy to sit in the pool area. The... More
