Well, this was supposed to be a trip that was expected stand in our memory for ever! Stand it did - With such a high expectation we stepped in to Astir Beach hotel in Crete.

In this hotel I spent a beautiful week. But the animators made it perfect. One of these, Natasha is very good, she made me smile and made the day fun! It's really a good person. I like her! The staff is very nice.

They said there is a 4**** hotel, but the rooms look rather like a 2**! We slept in folding bed, on a poor quality mattress and bedding as for 2**! The taps in the bathroom confirm the 2** valuation! With breakfast and dinner included in the initial price, you still have to pay for evreything (including watter!) at dinner!

As you all know a 4* hotel is really a full 3*. Astir Beach is not breaking the rule. You will find nice stuff, helpful, friendly. Decent food, various but not sophisticated. Basic rooms, with showers, TV, air conditioned and balcony, clean rooms. Cleaning lady was very popular, smiley. She cleaned the room every day and change the sheets twice...

Having stayed at the St Constantin last year we were hoping for the same kind of experience, but we were a little disappointed.

The hotel is realy nice, for a standard 4 star hotel in Crete. Good food if you go all inclusive, nice pool and the staf is nice as well. Very close to the beach, sandy beach..... but here you have to be very carefull. The beach is public, like almost everywere in crete.... and the lifeguards are not well prepared....

A good place to stay, in front of nice sandy beach. Room was spacey with balcony to the west. We enjoyed wonderful sunsets. There was not that must entertainment any more in September. Buffet meals had daily varieties in main courses, and tasted good. We stayed there with a group and had a pleasant time.
