Golden Star Hotel
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Analipsi
Reviewed August 17, 2012

(Almost) One week at Golden Star in Analpsi at the beginning of July 2012 was a very inspired choice (even if it came as a "last minute"). The hotel is not very big and this makes it a good choice for relaxing holidays, even for the simple fact that it is located in a small, quiet, village where the sunset replace disco bars and waves' sound, the loud music. Rooms are fair, clean and comfortable and, if you are lucky, you get a balcony with a beautiful seaview. Pool is fit for all tastes, the beach is small and rocky, but, hei, it is Mediteranean we are talking about.. the food was ok, nothing fancy, but tasty and plenty of it...excepting the morning coffee, that taste like dirt...A good place to stay and to enjoy the magical island of Crete..

What an excellent hotel! Located in a small village by the sea with great sunset views! Stayed at Golden Star in a standard double room in garden view.Our room was very big with an extra sofa bed,nice clean bathroom and big balcony looking the beautiful gardens.Swimming pool is lovely too with wooden sunchairs and umbrellas very close to the bar.Food was delicious.Staff very helpful and kind! We loved this holiday and will go back!

We spent at Golden Star one week at the beggining of august and we were impressed from the kindness of the staff and the excellent facilities provided.The hotel is not very big and this makes it a good choice for relaxing holidays.Our room located at the back looking the gardens and a part of the sea was very quiet,nice decorated with big balcony.There is also tennis court for sport lovers and a big swimming pool next to the bar.The beach of the hotel is small but very clean and sunbeds are free of charge.food was fine during breakfast and dinner,we had halfboard booking, and drinks were included in the dinner.Absolutely a great experience at the Golden,we will come back!

The hotel and pool was lovely, food was great with different food for lunch and dinner each day! I was there for 2 weeks and thourghly enjoyed it. The only thing that lets the hotel down is the location as there is very little around it, so I would recommend renting a car to explore further. But if you are looking for a holiday by the pool I would 100% recommend it! I loved my time there! A big thanks to the golden star staff!

A great experience in the island of Crete! We stayed one week at Golden Star and only good things i have to say.Very clean hotel located in front of a small beach with big rooms nice decorated and very friendly staff.Food is ok very tasteful a little bit repetitive.Swimming pool area very big with double sunbeds and nice atmosphere especially during the night.The village is very quiet not many things to do but still it s very beautiful.Great sunset from the veranda of Golden Star!

The hotel is excellent situated, it s very beautiful and calm. The stuff is really friendly and ready to help and answer all questions. All breakfasts, lunches and dinners are very tasty and always different. There is free wifi in public areas and sometimes in the rooms. Clean service is made every day. As for the beach, I can notice that the problem is not in the hotel. This side of the island can't unfortunately offer very good beaches, but if u like u can look for some. The hotel is situated next to the town hersonissos and the capital Heraklion. There wasn't any animation but I was glad as I was looking for calm holidays. I would Advise it to families and pairs looking for real relax!
