“excellent hotel and service”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I stayed in Petra for 5 nights and i was shocked how good this hotel was.This a family run hotel and there son takes care of everyday activity. The rooms are spacious with a beautiful sea view from the balcony.The rooms are neat and clean.The kitchen has all the equipments needed for cooking .Location of the hotel is very good you are close to the nightlife of hersonissos and at the same time it is peaceful.The pool is big and really nice.
The bar tender in petra is so sweet and nice, if you are having a good time he will keep the bar open way passed the time.For the price you pay u get way more than you expect.Amazing place which i will definitely repeat .Just carry a mosquito repellent for sure

I stayed in petra beach for two weeks and I had an amazing time. Friendly staff, nice and clean rooms and very good breakfast. The best part was the amazing sea view from our balcony)). I will definitely visit Petra Beach next year.

Petra hotel is located in a very nice spot in Hersonissos, close to nightlife and quiet the some time! It is run by a family that I know very well and I can tell they are doing their best to keep their guests happy.
The place is clean and every room is facing the sea that is only a few meters away. Very close to Petra you can find good places for traditional fish food.
Overall, I believe that you get the best value for your money there.

Stayed here from July 22 until July 26 based on other reviews. We arrived Heraklion Airport on time and took our rent-a-car from Anna Car Rental around 20:30 (an excellent company by the way). We had trouble finding The Petra Beach as it was SO dark however, we engaged a taxi and followed him to the hotel. Upon arrival, everything was prepared for our arrival and our request for an upper room with a pool/sea view was honored. Room was clean and pleasant and The WI-FI worked well. You can park behind the hotel and it seemed very safe to do so. There was one VERY good place to eat, the second cafe down to the left (facing the sea), the one on the right was kind of crabby and grumpy with many cats begging and touts asking for money. A very nice stay, well recommended, a very friendly and understanding staff!

Room Tip: FYI, the first gas station to the right (Heraklion Airport side) is VERY expensive, 185E per liter a...

We really liked this place. Everyone at the hotel and in Greece in general have been so friendly and helpful. This place offers great value for money and the rooms overlook the water. The pool is also large and good.

Arriving in the middle of the night we first got a little suspicious; where have we ended up, entering a narrow street with not too much lights on ?
I can honestly tell it turned quickly, this must be "value for money" as exprienced no other place ever.
Spyros and Yannis handle everything in a greek "at its best" way on a daily basis, always beeing nice and friendly. The kids loved them, (we adults too).
The lady in charge of the cleaning have to be the best they could find on the island, things are, as some reviewers have mentioned, spotless.
I think the family who run this gem have understood the importance of maintanance like few others, seeing how even the sunbeds were washed regularily proved that fact.
Hersonissos is not exactly the "hottest spot" on the planet but our 16 night stay here in july was really good due to this superb accomodation. Location can not be better.
Highly reccomended !!
