What can we say fantastic hotel the best we have ever stayed in on crete,The hotel was spotless and so was the pool area, Dimitris & maria make you feel very welcome.
Very quiet at night a great nights sleep what more could anyone ask.
Close to the town and sea front ,Try the tarantella restaurant on the side road just past the supermarket.
Breakfast was good and food was always fresh, We had a bar meal and found it good value.
Drinks at the bar are better priced than some bars in the town.
We will be making this our regular place to stay when in crete. Roll on next year.

Thanks for a great holiday

Just got back from a 1 week stay, and can only echo the other reviews here:-

A 2* hotel that punches way above its weight. 20 min walk into the port area, just far enough away to let the frenetic Hersonnissos activities of the town fade into the background.

Very relaxed atmosphere, great pool, kept scrupulously clean, but most of all Dimitris and Maria will make you feel so welcome.

If you want a hotel full of Brits then don't bother - the clientelle is cosmopolitan, and everyone on our stay seemed to pick up on the relaxed nature of this place and had a great time.

Wasn't sure about booking a basic hotel, but have no doubt that we will be joining others who have become regulars of the Dimitra. We had our 14 year old son with us who is normally into doing all sorts, and we were concerned he might get bored - no chance, he too adored the place.

Can not recommend this place highly enough - thanks for making our holiday one to remember

4 of us; two parents, a daughter and her friend stayed for the last two weeks of July. It was exceptionally hot, but with sea facing rooms attracting a welcome morning and evening breeze, the rooms were elegant, clean and comfortable. The rest of the hotel was well designed: big bar, reception and balcony with sea views, as well as the well maintained and good pool (excellent design and depth) meant the hotel was a fine place to be when the attractions of the beach or town were exhausted.
Cosmopolitan guests - simple but ample and ideal breakfast was a very good way to start the day.
The hotel service from all was top quality: friendly, helpful, but also non-intrusive. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask the owners beforehand.

Hotel Dimitra 2 * impressed us! Almost all rooms are with sea views, air-conditioned. Location 300m from the beach, the most cheerful youth STAR BEACH, next to the supermarket, the center and night life within walking distance.
The friendly owners, Maria and Dimitry are very caring and kind.
Breakfasts were quite normal, something was changing every day. Swimming pool is clean, thats important.
In general, we will come again!

Enjoyed the hotel pool, lovely clean, good size and enough sun loungers for everyone. The staff are friendly and accomodating. The food served is basic but good if you don't want to go out into the resort at night. The room itself was a long narrow style of room, 2 single beds which we pushed together. Nice balcony but we couldn't get ANY air into the room without opening the front door too and as it was 30 degrees at night we were really not able to sleep the first night. The air conditioning however wasn't that expensive at 5 euro a day so I definately recommend buying it. That also allows you to keep the doors to the balcony closed at night so you don't have to listen to pumping music from nearby resorts and quad bikes being ridden up and down the road. The resort itself is full of youths, most of them were Dutch. The town is quite nice but very busy and I wasn't very impressed with the beaches. It definately isn't a quiet holiday. The local restaurants didn't really focus on cultural Greek dishes either, there were some available but not a massive variety.

Ideally situated with a pool in the most perfect setting. Quietly placed at one end of the main road out of Hersonissos towards Stalis with great local buses/coaches from the bottom of the main road. Probably a 20min walk to the heart of Hersonissos but with bars and restaurents along the way it could be broken up into stages. Very friendly staff and the hotel & pool kept spotless. Basic but clean rooms and we had a balcony view overlooking the sea which was a bonus. Breakfast was simple but varied daily. Distance from the beach areas was 10mins down a number of steps through the King Minos hotel grounds so I would advise people with walking difficulties to condsider being closer to Hersonissos centre or go to Stalis instead. This was without doubt the most enjoyable holiday I have ever had!
