The rooms are spacious, modern, and clean. The A/C worked great. The pool is large and nice and it is a short walk to the beach and really beautiful sunsets! We enjoyed the hotel restaurant for dinner quite a bit - excellent food in our opinion. Very nice breakfast as well.

Definitely a good hotel to stay at. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Just a few minutes walk from the beach and a bus stop, giving you easy access to Heraklion and several sites e.g. The Palace Knossos. Provides good food and services, the staff are very polite and helpful. The bedrooms, bathrooms and hotel facilities are all very good.... More

We spent excellent time on September, 16-26 in Amoudara, Crete, at the CASRTO hotel. Everything was OK. You only ought to ask for the room looking at the pool (very pleasant) as the streets are not quiet. The staff is friendly. The rooms were cleaned every day. The air-condition, TV, free WiFi etc. worked. The breakfast jams were marvelous with... More

Basicly, you get what you pay for. We chose HB option and when I first was the breakfast I was amazed - it had everything I wanted wanted to eat :P My enthusiasm was tempered when we got to our first dinner. Not once was I able to eat everything - I just didn't like it. As for the rooms,... More

You can say that aircon is "working" if the only thing that works is the "On" light. There is no hot water at all (morning and night). The water pipes are making a symphony after someone uses the toilet. The bed is a hard springbox and pillows are flat and yellowish (see the picture). Soundproofing is pretty bad. You can... More
