We stayed at Anastasia for 10 days this October. Booked it because of the excellent reviews here on Tripadvisor and price. Were not disappointed at all. First of all we were really impressed with the personal approach from the hotel manager/owner. We arrived quite late and received a very warm personal welcome from him. Later on we were also looked after very well and were asked several times if everything was OK (which was, well maybe mattresses a bit hard, but we got used to them). Michael, the owner/manager tries his best to make sure his guests are satisfied with their stay and generally is always around and up for a chat. His team is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel rooms and all areas are very well maintained.
We loved the cleanliness, friendliness and safeness of this place as well as facilities. The evening entertnainment was so-so to our taste, more like for people 45+ and we haven't reached that age yet :) We travelled with our 3 y.o. daughter and she liked the kids club and made some friends in the friendly and homely atmosphere of the hotel.
Personally I was very impressed with the food. A large selection of salads, vegetable and meat dishes for dinner. I feel much healthier now after eating my favourite cabage salad for dinner every night :) (and other dishes too)
I also loved the view on the mountains (see photos), especially in the morning swimming before breakfast.
It was our first visit to Crete and we didn't really know what to expect. We rented a car and explored the island a bit. Our favourite beach wasn't the one near Anastasia and we drove often to Hersonissos beaches (our favourite was near hotel Creta Maris). This isn't quite relevant for Anastasia review, but sometimes myself I find useful tips reading Tripadvisor reviews. So here it is.
The weather in first half of October was just perfect. Still very hot (25+), but not extremely. The sea was nicely warm.
