“Great Value Hotel”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We were pleasantly suprised of how our hotel turned. We booked this hotel from a great deal online that included both breakfast and dinner (half board). Very nice clean rooms including a kitchenette if you need. Also a good view of the sea. Breakfast was standard as in many hotels in crete but nonetheless pretty good. Also dinner was very good considering the price we paid. The beach is clean and quiet but on the side of the main road. We spent the day traveling visiting other beaches and sights to come back to this hotel. This was the main purpose of the hotel. Staff was very friendly with fantastic service. We would definately come back.

If you are in the area make sure to visit Elounda beach, go to the island and take the pedestrian path to the back of the island to the beach. One of the best most beautiful beaches I have ever seen!

Staff very friendly and helpful. Booked our room at the last minute and got a 3-bed room (and a bathtub!) with balcony overlooking the beach and mountains. (However, we overheard some other couple who weren't much pleased with their room.) Beautiful hotel, with interior rooms overlooking semi-tropical gardens; directly across the street are two outdoor restaurants overlooking the gorgeous beach and distant mountain views - these are the top reasons we enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Con: (1) poor WiFi service - could not get it in my room - had to stay on the ground floor in the back of the dining room (2) barely passable breakfast - bland yogurt (neither sour nor sweet); canned peaches in syrup; the fresh fruit was tasteless; canned juices; ordinary cold cereals; croissants and crusty bread with butter and honey/preserves were good options; hard-boiled eggs; decent olives, feta cheese, ripe tomatoes. We stayed away from the slices of processed cheese and 'ham'.

Have just returned from faedra beach hotel, what can I say, food great, staff great, rooms spotless. Totally relaxing time spent swimming in the pool which we had all to ourselves. Road can be a bit noisy at times but its not a problem, no supermarket but nice to walk into ag nic for water etc. no scope for a walk after dinner but these minor things aside a great place to chill and relax.

We stayed at Faedra Beach Hotel from the 20-25th of July 2012,after travelling for 6 weeks in Greece we wanted somewhere nice and relaxing,and that's exactly what we got. The staff and owners of the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant served beautiful authentic Greek cuisine which we ate daily by the beach. The view was beautiful both from our room and on the beach. Ari,Aldo,Yiana,Nikos and Manos looked after us and nothing was too much trouble. The children had a fantastic time at the beach. The rooms were clean and serviced daily. If you want some hustle and bustle the town of Agios Nikolaos is only 3km away,with plenty of bars and restaurants. I suggest you eat at the hotel the food is so much better then in the town. We will always remember our stay at Faedra Beach. Hope we get to go again one day.

Good place for calm rest, close to Agios Nikoloas, where you can enjoy nightlife. Good sand beach with free sunbeds, beach cafe. Always calm sea, slow wind. Hotel is small, but clean and tidy, very nice service.

ok hotel, very nice location, excellent restaurant, the only thing i did not like, was the lady at the reception, asking to get paid from the minute we arrived. And we did paid. After 2 days stay, we check out and the same lady asked to get paid again!!

Very cozy place with extremely friendly staff!

Rooms are big, air-conditioned, with terrace. Awsome breakfast with the tastiest olives on the island! A good swimming pool (great before b/fast) and 100 steps to the beach (perfect after b/f).

Do not rent a car there, there are much cheaper places in Agios Nikolaos. You will definitely need a car, the place is quite far from Agios Nikolaos.

Do talk to the staff, they are really helpful and will tell you where to go to get perfect experience.

Room Tip: 2nd floor, sea view.
