The Peninsula Resort & Spa is located in the Heraklion prefecture of Crete, in the village of Agia Pelagia, just 25 km away from Heraklion town. The hotel is built amphitheatrically on a peninsula of distinctive natural beauty between the bays of Mononaftis and Psaromoura, forming a unique panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea. The hotel offers direct access to three different beaches ideal for swimming and snorkeling due to their protection from the frequent northeastern winds that regularly affect the North of Crete. The hotel is compromised of two main buildings and several groups of Bungalows with great views of the sea. In total the hotel offers 250 guest rooms of various types. The architectural and decorative style of the hotel is simple yet elegant aiming to maintain a traditional Cretan style and highlighting the natural colours of Greece. The Peninsula Resort & Spa is the ideal destination for those seeking both relaxation and enjoyable holidays in Crete.

built on the slopes of the peninsula, the resort enjoys all the benefit of the view and the quiet nature around. the place is welcoming and the food is OK. not for elderly or walking problems people as there are lots of stairs all around.

On arrival, our room was not as expected (possibly one of the problems of booking via a third party), but reception were very good and moved us on the second day to a room that was more suitable for a three generational family. The second room was perfect with lovely views out

We booked a double room and got a twin (two beds pushed together). So if you don't receive a twin room after booking one, request to be moved to another room with twin beds. I think most of the rooms are twins.

You can hire a boat and go snorkeling. The beach below has shops that sell snorkeling gear for cheap. Beach for swimming. Tennis Pools for swimming (Indoor and outdoor) Spa Activities for the kids It depends on your 9 year old and what he likes doing. I think the resort is fabulous for kids! Take his iPad and activities to keep him occupied when he gets bored or take one of his friends/cousins along to keep him company then they can play together.
