This is a family hotel. So expect a lot of kids.
Rooms are clean and very nice. Very nice view to the sea!
Very friendly hotel staff.
Good food buffet with changing themes. Hotel caters to many germans, russians some brits. All are happy and talk to each other.
Great pool area for kids. Nothing for couples needing their peace and quite...
The sandy beach is notoriously overcrowded.
WiFi exists but tend to be overcrowded too...
All in all good value for money for families with kids.
Sitting in the taxi on the way out I saw that there was I big landfill just above the hotel...

It is THE family resort

Extremely warm personnel, very good facilities, great seaside, spacious pools, great kids club, very good location for short daily trips (spinalonga, agios nikolaos, knosos etc), great quality food in all restaurants, very nice bar and a very cozy "kafeneio" with the best bay view and cold "raki" with small tasty bits!!!
Spend there two weeks in August, the hotel was completely full and still the was not the slightest congestion not even in the breakfast at the buffet's closing time or in the pool during the rush morning hours.
we will be back next year

A" jewel " as some locals call it, Candia Park Village comprises numeral colourful houses which are like a traditional village. In the centre you can find the beautiful village square with a big clock,a traditional taverna, a restaurant for breakfast and dinner , a cafe , a pool bar with a fantastic view and of course the swimming pools which are perfect for all ages.
The beach, which is really nice but not the best in Crete, is right in front of the resort .There you can do watersports or relax under the wonerful trees.
The rooms are spacious and clean,nicely decorated with a kitchen and a big veranda shaded by trees.
All the staff is polite and eager to help.
Breakfast has got a big variety of delicious food and is served in the picturesque village square.
I think it is a perfect hotel for a family holiday and I strongly recommend it.

We have booked this location based on one recommendation and the great reviews. This place is a great family resort, 99% of the guests are families with children. It is a small village and it has lots of space for everyone. Wonderful view, swiming pools, the staff is so kind and always helpful. We left the resort for one day only for a short trip. The taxi ride has a fixed price, which saves you some stress.
We had breakfast included, but in the end we had dinner every evening here as well. The food is tasty at both locations and for children is easy to choose something. There are facilities to cook in your room, but not for a decent family dinner.
The service at the pool bar was excellent as well. Always smilling and accommodating our wishes. The apartment is spacious, simple but practical. Don't expect luxury, you have decent facilities. The only negative is the tap water in the bath tub. When you use the hot water, the tap gets very hot and you can get burned. Especially for children this can be dangerouse.
The resort had an offer to have a spa treatment to another hotel with 5 stars and they have arranged transportation for us. The massage was nice and we have enjoyed the 5 stars hotel for drinks/lunch. This was a nice extra for us the parents.
For our trip, we had bus transportation included from/to airport and the resort. When we left, we have decided to take a taxi instead which took only 45min instead of more than1h30min by bus. We have paid a fixed price 85euro and we had a very good trip to the airport.
We would recommend this place and we hope to return.

we would definately recommend this hotel.We arrived quite late evening and the restaurant was closed but there was a meal waiting for us in our room.from then on the holiday only got better and better purely down to the wonderful staff.Everyone from reception, bar staff ,cleaners, gardiners, maintenance were extremely warm and welcoming.Manolis, Raina and Andreas at the pool bar felt like friends by the end of the holiday.The maitre de in the restaurant was very proffessional but also very friendly especially with the children He ran the restaurant with extreme efficiancyHis staff were lovely too especially Irini.The two girls in the bar Vicky and Doxa were great I think The manager should be very proud of his fantastic staff The nightly enterainment was also very good too. The rooms were spotlessly clean We cannot fault this hotel and would highly recommend it especially to families.

Well what can i say! First and foremost the staff at this hotel were absolutely spot on with customer care.From the reception (eva) to the pool bar (manolis) to the watersports (barry manilow)...well he was a dead ringer for him!
The rooms here are fantastically large with great balconies,cleaned daily and superb air-con which is a must at night.
There are two main pools which are just the right temperature for cooling off in the heat as well as a toddlers pool adjoining.
Food at the main restaurant was varied and well presented,we always managed to be seated for five even when it was busy.Drinks at the hotel were a bit on the steep side i.e pint of lager 3.90 euros,coke 2.70 euros and carafe of red wine 7.50 euros.But hey your on holiday!!! the hotel is predominately german tourists scattered with a few british and greek.No problem with getting a sunbed at the pool or the beach as there are more sunbeds than guests.(do not lose your towels as there is a 20 euro fine)
Going further afield i would definately recommend using taxis to elounda and aghios nicholias due to the fact the bus service is very unreliable.Taxis to ag nic and elounda are 8 and 13 respectively.The submarine boat out of ag nic is an enjoyable trip and is cheap if you book through reception,we had two children go free which was a big saving.The highlight of our holiday was hiring the small self drive motor boat from barry down on the watersports near the beach.You only get an hour for 50 euros but you can sail to your hearts content and the kids loved it.
All in all i would say we had a fabulous holiday at candia park and would thoroughly recommend it to families and couples.

Room Tip: if your in a family of five like we were then room 842 would give you a view of the sea.

Really enjoyed our stay here. The pools were fantastic and though the hotel was full, it never seemed over crowded. The food on half board was excellent, especially the Bbq nights. We had a basic apartment for 2 adults and 1 10 year old. The space was more than adequate, with a lovely big balcony. The whole complex was lovely and clean. The beach was on the small side, though we loved the rocky cove to the other side where we could dive amoungst loads of fish. Transfer was a nightmare with cosmos. Would go back to candia park, but not with cosmos who seemed to forget about us, and would book a taxi transfer.
