The Caretta Beach Hotel is on the north shore of Greek island of Crete. I was looking for a quiet beach and I found it :) The beach is mostly sand, it is large and long, flanked by mountains. The water is warm these days, as I'm still here, writing you from my hotel room. The Carreta Beach Hotel is really nice, it looks like a series on mini-apartments laid on the horizontal, with Greek inspired architecture. It has a pool and a mini restaurant whe aunty Katerina cooks every evening a local speciality (besides the menu). All personnel is speaking basic English and they are so friendly.

Nice hotel near beach. Great option for families with kids. Perfect spa in the hotel, very appreciated the massage and turkish bath! Food is very good and the meals change every day. Everybody in hotel very nice and friendly.
Beautifull hotel with friendly atmosphere, very clean, great services. It is located in beautifull garden abd it has nice big clean pool with slides and nice beach. All is clean and well mantained. The hotel is not new, but everything in and out is very well kept and clean. The food is delicious. The staff is caring and friendly. The rooms are cleaned daily. The hotel is safe. They offer a photographer services - we have beautifull pictures of our family now. It is great, we never had such a nice pictures from our holidays :-) The hotel has wifi for extra fee of 10 Eur per stay per device.The hotel has very small gym and offer also spa and massages. However, please be carefull if you order massages from guy who sell those. He is an emploee of the hotel, however he has no problem to cheat you. He is the only bad apple here, however as the rest of the hotel works on 100% you would not expect that and it worth to mention it. After the first massage the seller comes and tells you, that they found a problem, which they can help you with by ordering more massages. Do not let him push you to do hasty decessions as he tends to work like that. He will push you for cash only, however the hotel accepts cards. If you order spa and massage services-alwas check if there are written correct times and amounts on the card as he can writte different things on the card then you agreed on. It is a pitty, that such a person is in this hotel, as the massage services and spa of this hotel are on high level and very proffesionally done and under "normal" circumstances I would highly recomand them to all visitors. Otherwise all the hotel staff is caring and nice. The stay are true holidays which you will enjoy :-)…
Just home from carretta beach resort. Had a lovely week there. Staff on reception on the ball when we needed medical attention for our 21 son.we were in medical transfer within 10 mins and this was at 3 am. The pools were fantastic and well used by our grandchildren. Food was OK. You could always find something to eat. Rooms were clean and towels and bedding changed every day. I would recommend block E,as it's only 2 mins walk from reception and restaurant and entertainment but quiet enough to rest and relax in peace. Would definitely book swim up room if we ever visited again.
A couple of days ago I spent with my family 12 days in the hotel, all inclusive. Hotel staff is very nice, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent except of low quality fruits. Drinks on average level. No amenities in the bathroom. The cleaning service was on daily base, with embarrassing results in the room, corridor, dining room, outside around the pool - simply everywhere. Very noise air-conditioning caused problematic sleeping. The pool and pool for children were clean, toboggans and slides working 3-times per day without real control of safety by responsible person. The biggest problem were guests (especially Russian and Turkeys) - they were really noise, smoking everywhere - so you are not able to have rest time in fresh air on the sun around the outside pool, it was really polluted. The outside all inclusive service was good. The beach itself is mostly sandy with pebbles going to the water. During the time I spent the sea was covered by bigger waves practically all of the time so it is dangerous for children to step inside. The coastal water is mixed with sand and therefore it looks not clean - muddy. The temperature of the water in the pools was 27°C and sea around 29°C. At the end I have to say that it is possible to survive in this hotel on good level - but it is not four star hotel, maybe reaches three star..…
Nice and quiet at night. A lot of Russian people. I think that we where around 5-7 people from another country than Russia. The pool area where nice but there was loud music from early on to long after dinner. The beach where nice, the staff where polite and the rooms where clean. The bar where also nice.
Just returned from this hotel. Vistited with our daughter and 3 grand daughters. We were concerned as to what we would find after reading the reviews. But, we need not have worried. Exceptionally clean and excellent customer service. Efficient air con in our rooms and fridge and microwave. Drinks and food were both very good. Even though it was busy, no queues for anything. You can be as active or as relaxed as you wish as there are several pool areas to choose from. 1 tip. Don't book any trips out through travel agent. So much cheaper if you just walk 50 yards put of the gate and book directly with the local company. 15 euros each for an 8 hour boat trip around the whole island !! Check out the Venue bar about 10 minutes walk. Good music and cheap, delicious cocktails.
