We were at crete and stayed in golden beach on 21-25 to October. We were very happy with the hotel. Before we went o read almost all the reviews on this hotel and have some comments. First, there were many reviews saying the standard room is not as it seems from the pictures and it is advised to upgrade the room, so we wanted to upgrade but first saw the standard room which is absolutely fine. Might be a bit smaller But for our stay it was great. Must mention the AMAZING shower ! Perhaps its space is a bit small but the head is a rain type and was so good. One con of the room is the bed, was a bit stiff. The front desk girls are the nicest persons and were very helpful. Also we had rented the car from the hotel which was simple and a good deal. About the food, in my opinion the food was not the best but it was like this in all simple Greek restaurants, so maybe it's just my taste with greek food. Even though dinners were diverse and plenty. We highly recommend this hotel. Enjoy your vacation :)

I stayed in Golden Beach hotel 14. - 21. October 2012, and the hotel is really very good. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Our room had a view to the main street, but because the season was ending already then there wasn't too much noise and it wasn't a problem to go to sleep at 22.00 if you would like. Although there is a karaoke bar over the road, so I guess in the summer it can be quite noisy there. The room service was quite okay, although I'm not sure they did change the bedclothes twice a week, as the information sheet told us, but it wasn't a big problem. Our room wasn't very big, the other rooms seemed to me a bit bigger, but it was normal. The fridge in our room was quite warm and in the beginning it seemed like it wasn't working but maybe it was so everywhere. I though I should mention that in the bathroom there was soap on the wall not in the small bottles. Overall the room was good and had everything we needed. Breakfast in the hotel was very tasty and various. The hotel also had a pool in the roof but it was pretty small and not very attractive. The hotel beach was not very big but sandy, although I would recommend to walk about 10 minutes and you will be in the Star Beach where are a lot of pools, sandy bottom of sea and many different water sport options. Anyway the hotel was very good and beautifully renovated. I would certainly recommend you to go there.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with family

This hotel is amazing and worth visiting.
The hotel is renovated in modern design.
The staff is very helpful, friendly and kind and service is perfect. We met lovely Mary on reception, Akis on the bar, Eva in the restaurant and the Hotel Manager was very kind for all people in this hotel.
The rooms - tidy, have a view to the beautiful sea. Atmosphere is pleasant and special. The food is delicious with a variety from Greek and Mediterranean cuisine.
One the best point - that hotel has really good location: near beach and the center, where the night life is active.
This hotel is definitely is a good place to enjoy your holidays for all: and for the couples, and for the families and for separate travelers…

We would like to come back for next holidays.

We booked golden Beach as a last minuite change as our previous tour operator let us down (first choice!!) never use them again! So cancelled that and booked here...
Well what can I say.. This is our 2nd visit to herisonosis and must admit we love the place.. And to find a hotel with generous sized rooms (rooms tend to be small in Greek hotels) with a/c included in the price HOT water on tap (unusual for quite a few Crete hotels as they use solar heating)
But it doesn't stop their!! Oh no.. The food is varied mediterranean and Greek cooked to perfection! ( breakfast needs work) but lunch and dinner were wonderful, all of the staff are extreemly friendly and helpful, we had a small issue on the first day with the shower not working very well so went to see reception/ manager.. The issue was resolved within 20 mins by an incredibly nice chap that works on maintenance ..
Infact all the staff go the extra mile to make you very welcome.
The only downside to our trip was via our tour operator.
We arrived 01.30 hrs on a weds but tour operator booked us from tues (obviously)
And our return flight was 00.30 hrs the following weds BUT!! Check out is 12.00 on day of departure (hotel policy) our tour operator did not inform us of this!!! Imagine sitting around from 12.00 midday in your winter woolies 91 degrees that day awaiting to go home to the uk and coach to airport not collecting you till 22.50 hrs
Yes near 11 hours before departure having to check out (end of all inclusive etc). MUST ADD this is not the hotels fault but OUR tour provider!
Fortunately the hotel manager came to our rescue and provided us a room till our departure for a nominal fee of €50.
Thank-you .. This made our holiday end with a smile and allowed us to freshen up before we took our leave...
I would also like to thank YOU the hotel manager and all your staff for making our stay with you special .... Thank-you :-)
We shall be back...
Best regards

Overall hotels is good. Food is tasty. Room seemed small but comfy. Our balcony was nearer to the busy street so music was heard till 2-3 am but i guess it's not a problem if you are out during that time anyways. Small beach is near by.
