The bungalow with garden view was a disappointment as it looked totally different from the site. Yet, the garden and sea views from the bar and restaurant are terrific. The staff does all to please and help, but animation is too loud and imposing. Lying in a beach chair next to the pool you do not need screaming guys wearing... More

I am an airline pilot and I have been flying with my family for about 35 years. I can say that the stay at Creta Beach Hotel was one of the best stays I had in my life. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The service was good. The hotel is at walking distance from shops and restaurants.... More

A travel agent who did not know our preferences booked us into this hotel for more than a week. It's the kind of place that would be best for families with young children, or on a budget, as there are places to swim, a beach, activities, an eating hall- so no need to go elsewhere. But the feeling is kind... More

We stayed one night in this hotel. The grounds are very nice, it's right on a beach, and our bungalow was pleasant. However, it could have done with some refurbishing (plastic shower curtain? No) and the quality did not reflect its star rating. The food, a club-med style buffet, was adequate but uninspired. Breakfast was nice, with a big choice... More

Full disclosure: Heraklion is not a beautiful city and there are quite a lot of factories in the nearby ports. Having said that, we found it a practical location for touring Knossos, Faistos and Gortyna.
