Just had the best two weeks here at kreta natur, it is everything everyone said it was and more. George , Maria and Michael and Ana are amazing and can not do enough for you.
The rooms are spotless as is the pool area and surrounding grounds.
BBQ night is a treat, such fun with excellent home cooking from Maria as well as Greek dancing and a party atmosphere.
The town is a short stroll down hill but only a 7 euro trip in a taxi.
In all a wonderful place to go on holiday and we will certainly be coming back here. Thanks to all who made our holiday so special.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views

Just back from 2 weeks at this wonderful place. George , Marie and Michael provide a very warm welcome whatever time of day or night you arrive. Nothing is ever too much trouble and always willing to help with any information/queries. Lovely clean an well designed layout .Apartments good also.Food good. Far enough away from nightlife in Hersonnissos but close enough to get to. But who needs it after one of Maries BBQ evenings ! Lots of accessible beaches small and large if you don't mind a walk. A little bit of paradise (especially the hammock under the trees !)Didn't go on any trips,boat rides or watersports as enjoyed most of the time around the pool or on the beach. A lovely chilled out holiday.

Had the absolute pleasure of going to this hotel and meeting Maria, George and Michael.

The hotel is clean, comfortable and really well run.

Yes it is in a quiet location but all the busy bars and tavernas are only a 7 euro taxi ride away. We loved the secluded nature of this hotel and loved chilling by the fantastic pool being looked after by our hosts.

I will definitely be returning here and if you're reading this so should you.

We arrived in the middle of the day and were quickly made welcome by owners George and Maria, and Michael, their barman and general Man-Friday - What a stunning place, and so well-run with real passion by George and Maria - who are very engaging hosts. The setting has been hand-crafted from the original hillside scrubland by George over the last 30 years, and the trees, pool, apartments, barbeque and outside ovens, and settings to eat and relax are just perfect.
We were immediately made to feel part of their family for whom nothing is too much trouble - Above all George and Maria love you to appreciate the Cretan food and culture - Marias evening dinners are superb and eaten on the rooftop watching the setting sun. The barbeques are a perfect opportunity to let your hair down and dance after some masterful food.
The beach is close, but we never went - as the pool side was quiet and like having a private villa and pool for most of the time!. Taxis are available only 100 m away, as the local tavernas are fairly uninspiring, and all the other local hotels and resorts are the dreaded 'all-inclusive'.
We will certainly return and wouldn't change any part of our two weeks there with George, Maria, Michael and our fellow guests of all nationalities. Result.

Room Tip: Although George planned all rooms to face the sea, of course the upstairs apartments have a balcony...

I traveled with my husband, and 2 daughters (with 1 boyfriend) aged 19-21. Kreta Natur is just how it looks in the pictures. The gardens are beautiful and the pool area immaculately kept. We hired a car for one week and went out and about, but the kids spent quite a bit of time lying around the pool, and at times were the only ones there. Everybody is very friendly and George and Maria keen to ensure you have a good holiday.

The apartments are in two blocks, and are spacious, with tv, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, as usual single ring and pots and pans. There is air con, but the rooms are tall, and keep cool.

It is about a 25 minute walk into town, mainly down hill on the way, but uphill back which is a bit of a struggle in the heat. We would walk in, stop at the SPAR shop in town, and then get a taxi back for 7 euros, when we didn't have the car. When we had the car, we would go to the local Lidl, as that did not involve driving into the centre of town, which can be quite busy.

There is a long beach on the front where the all inclusives are, but if you venture, up the hill (passed the taxi rank) towards the shops and restaurants, there is a small cliff (with steps carved out) which takes you down to a small sandy beach with loungers for hire. The other main beach walking down the hill, is a lot rockier, but cooler on hot days with a nice sea breeze.

I would highly recommend hiring a car and going up to the Plateau, the views are amazing, and there are some lovely traditional villages to have something to drink or eat. We went to all the local restaurants over the 2 weeks, and all good. I also agree the barbeque night is excellent and there is loads of food. Maria's potatoes were particularly good.

Overall, I would highly recommend Kreta Natur to someone wanting a more laid back Greek holiday, in a relaxing environment, with good access to shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 15, a ground floor triple apartment, with a good size patio area.

All the reviews we read on trip advisor were true ! Beautiful grounds and pool and the most welcoming of hosts,Maria,George and lets not forger Michael! From the moment we arrived everyone was on first name terms.food was fantastic and the BBQ night was a highlight on the last day of our holiday.
Things to know- make sure you haveThe right directions to the town!!
We went the wrong way in 30 + heat ?The walk back was not easy so a 7 euro taxi trip was required.
Car hire is plentiful but you need a good map and must not be of a nervous disposition when driving in the towns.we felt 3 days of car hire was enough to see historical sites and the like.
All in all it felt like we were in a big house visiting favourite relatives.
We would love to return but as we live in Oz we may not have the opportunity as we have so many other places we want to visit.
Thanks to all the other guests for welcoming us and imparting all their local knowledge.
Anne,Alan and grace
