Knossos Beach Bungalows & Suites
Ranked #2 of 13 Hotels in Kokkini Hani
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Knossos was absolutely beautiful. The staff was very professional, knowledgeable and had unconditional hospitality. The service was above excellence. The hotel it's self is very well kept, as well as the private beach. It was a pleasant stay for my husband and I and we will be returning in the upcoming years.

We were there for almost a week, late August 2012, and had our wedding party at the Swell restaurant.
About 60 friends and family stayed at the hotel as well.
Overall, i would say that everything was great.
The rooms of about 90% of our guests were excellent.
But when staying in that hotel, it is worth paying a little bit more and choose a sea - front bungalow or a junior suite.
The beach (despite the wind) was enjoyable and people working at the bar there were very nice.
Regarding the employees, all of them, from the cleaning ladies to the general manager, were too kind and always willing to help.
The people working at the "Swell" restaurant were fabulous (and the food was more than great).
Ofcourse we had our problems (e.g. the wedding party had to stop early due to complains for the music, and personaly i did not enjoy the extra-loud music by the pool every time the 'entertainment team' showed up. The buffet restaurant could be better as well).
But overall, i would like to personally thank all people working there, and especially the Swell's personnel and the manager of the hotel, for the unforgettable time they offered us.

We will for sure see you again.

Room Tip: When choosing this hotel, you must stay either in a sea front bungalow or a junior suite.

I and my wife stayed in a bungalow at the waterfront, with our bedroom facing the ocean. The room was very well furnished, the beds on the beach are a great way to relax on the beach. The beach itself is clean and the water too is clean and warm. The ocean view of course is spectacular.

The hotel has other amenities like tennis court, etc that we didn't need. the restaurant buffet was very good and so was the food in the swell restaurant (bit pricey though).

We didn't want to leave. I think it is great for a relaxing vacation, there might be stuff to do outside the resort but we didnt look into that. From there we went to Santorini which is a couple hours away by boat.

Room Tip: choose one of the new bungalows which are on the right side of the entrance

The whole family had an excellent one week stay ay this hotel - two boys of 4 and 6 years and us two grownups. We enjoyed the lovely beach, the swimmingpool, the delicate room, the lovely private shower outdoors and the nice food. We couldn`t have had better service and the staff did everything to please us. We would really like to go there again:)

Lovely location - on the beach - and friendly and helpfull staff! The room was ok, but the bathroom was too small. Very much good food. They have the most dedicated and the most friendly Animation Team that I've ever known! They do everything possible to feel great both children and adults. Our vacation was perfect because of them. Our daughter did not want to go back home, but to stay with them (she was crying and hoping to lose the airplan). Every morning she was waiting for the Mini Club activities, then the dance in the water, the Mini Disco and Karaoke in the evening and when she was not with them, she was looking for them all the time. In their company, we felt as between old friends. And so it was the Animation Team with everyone. Thank you, guys, for an excellent vacation!

The hotel was in a very bad condition. Walls, beds, bathroom need renovation. We saw two cockroaches in the bathroom. The food in the Swell was marvelous. The only thing that we enjoyed in the hotel. It's not a 4-star hotel but only 2-star hotel.

Dear Mrs Sofia K,

We thank you very much for coming to Knossos Beach and for posting your comment. We are glad that you enjoyed so much the meal in our Swell Restaurant. On the other hand we deeply regret that our hotel’s standard room didn’t match your expectation. Despite we don’t think that your description gives the real picture of our rooms, we still keep it in a high consideration in order to improve and better plan the next renovation works.

Respectfully yours,

Franco Ferrari
Guest Relations Manager

Lovely hotel and resort! Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and safe rooms. Good food. Franco, our Guest Relations host, was exceptional and provided us with superlative attention and personalized service. Our stay was at the end of the tourist season. So because the hotel wasn't too busy, Franco offered to be our private tour guide for the day! He took us in his own car where we wanted to go (the Cave of Zeus) and showed us through the mountains and to many quaint little villages around central Crete that we would never have discovered had we been on our own. Franco provided local historical facts and cultural commentary that enriched our tour very much. We would stay at Knossos Beach Bungalows & Suites again and would definitely look for Franco!
