“Wonderful Hotel”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

What a wonderful stay. We were double upgraded to a suite at the top of the hill. What a walk and good exercise!! The views were beautiful and the terrace was a little sun trap. The hotel was a short walk from a quaint little village with a large choice of restaurants to eat in. We ate in the Creta Blue a few nights - Elena's food was tasty and the ambience is perfect. Soft music and lighting overlooking the pool.
The family and staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. We arrived with friends who had to fly home the next day because of a family incident and George arranged their journey home straight away.
I would certainly go back.

Room Tip: Ensure that you get a room nearer the pool.

Dear Valuable Guests,
Let me take the opportunity to thank you for your review. Personally me and my family are working hard to ensure that all our guests will have a pleasant time and most importantly stress free holiday. There are many times that i see people stressed for absolutely no reason even during their stay but they soon realize that they are in good hands and they have got nothing to worry about.
That is what make people want to come back if not every year year by year as they know that they will come on a beautiful environment where will be treated like real kings as this is our philosophy to treat all our guests like kings.
Wishing you a great summer and once again thank you for making Creta Blue your home this summer!!

We didn't expect too much when we booked this holiday. Boy were we surprised! This is a small family run hotel which is extraordinary. George, his family and staff could not have been more helpful and courteous. The accommodation was more than acceptable with a wonderful sea view and Georges Mum, Helena looks after the menus and cooking. His wife is in charge of the lovely breakfasts on the sunny terrace overlooking the town below. Nothing is too much trouble for this family, NOTHING!. This hotel has no stars and is not featured in exclusive brochures thank goodness, otherwise we would never get in! The pool area is spotless as are the rooms and we always got a comfortable position around the pool. This is one of the very few holidays we really did not want to end. The local town which like the hotel is up in the hills, is just a 10 minute walk away. There are some lovely little tavernas and bars to visit which we thought were great value and the food in these was good local fare and superb. We will definitely return to paradise. Thank you George from the pink shirt wearers' club, and see you and the family soon.

Room Tip: Go for the best room you can get. The views are lovely from your balcony.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here from 26th May - 5th June and absolutely loved it!
The family that run the hotel are very friendly and helpful- the manager helped us book a day trip to Knossos and his father even gave us a lift to meet the coach at half 8 in the morning!
Breakfast every morning was a mix of breads, cheese, ham and yogurt with fruit which we enjoyed. The pool area was very peaceful ( it was mostly couples when we stayed) and the infinity pool made for some nice pictures! We ate at the hotel once for dinner and the food and atmosphere was lovely, we had lunch there too. The food / drinks at the hotel were reasonably priced. Most other nights we ate in the village of Koutouloufari around a 5-10 min walk from hotel, which had a great selection of tavernas, we ate somewhere different every night! We went down to Herosinoss a few times for the beach ( around a 20 min walk down the hill, got taxi back up) and once for dinner - I much preferred Koutouloufari, Herosinoss wasn't as nice. However teenagers would enjoy as there were lots of clubs! Our room was cleaned everyday, we had a balcony with a great view. The hotel is set up a hill and has lots of steps so may be a struggle for older people- it was no problem for us though! All in all I can't recommend Creta Blue enough and hope to return one day! :)

Dear Valuable Guests,
Thank you for posting a review and sharing your experience with other future guests. As described we are doing everything we can to offer you a relaxed and stress free holiday. I would also like to bring to the attention of our future guests as recently we had people that booked a bus transfer in order to come to our hotel is that NO COACH whatsoever can REACH our hotel. The information that is provided form internet websites that the coach will drop you only 200m away from the hotel is completely misleading and the distance from where the coach will drop you is at least 700m on a very steep hill. In order to avoid any misunderstandings Creta Blue Suites is not responsible for picking up the guests from the point that the bus will drop you. However there are kind bus drivers that they give us a call to come and pick up our guests and will always do. But there are others who don't and the people have to walk with 30-35 degrees temperature all the way up the hill without knowing where the hotel is.
So please a small recommendation book transfers by taxi from the many companies that you can find on the web or contact us directly.
Once again thank you for your post and we hope to see you again whenever you choose to visit our beautiful island.

As a first time visitor to Crete, I've been totally spoilt by my holiday at Creta Blue. From the moment that we booked the holiday, George and his family, welcomed us into their 'home' and the attention to every detail made the holiday so special. We had fresh flowers in the room, a wonderful display of rose petals on our bed for our anniversary, and the finishing, individual touches happened every day. George and his family are all very special people who do all that they possibly can to make their guests holiday one to remember. We had to extend our stay by 4 days so had the privilege of 2 different rooms - the Grand suite and an executive room. Both had stunning views over the bay and were beautifully furnished. The breakfasts were a wonderful start to the day and Eleni's food is superb. The BBQ was a great night to remember too. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean and the bed linen replaced regularly. George arranged for our airport transfers - we highly recommend the door to door service. George, thank you and also please thank all your staff for their service - always with a huge smile - everyone makes your hotel a very special 'gem'. The gardens are fabulous too - Martin and I look forward to returning to stay with you ......

Room Tip: Talk with George before you travel and he'll sort the best room for your needs.

Fantastic holiday in Crete with Georgios and his wonderful family. The attention to detail, food, helpfulness and friendliness were second to none. Nothing at all was too much trouble. This was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The pool was wonderful, set in colourful and beautifully kept garden area and away from the hustle and bustle which made it peaceful. The rooms were very clean, included frehly cut flowers and views from the rooms were fantastic, looking out see sea and down on Hersonnissos below. The best write up though most come for Helen's cooking and the family and staff who were both friendly and attentive at all times. George came to say goodbye to us and throughout our stay had helped to organise anything that we wanted to do. Can't wait to go back again - the whole family loved it!

Just returned from a fabulous week at Creta Blue. What a little jewel. My wife and I did our research into this hotel before our holiday and everything we had read was spot on. We were upgraded complimentary to an executive suite which was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated with a breathtaking view. The rooms were cleaned daily and the pool area and surrounding gardens were immaculate. Everything we ate was fresh and even fresh flowers were hand picked and placed in our rooms on our return. If you want total relaxation and amazing food and hospitality then this is the place for you. We ate outside the hotel only twice and neither came anywhere near Helen's cooking. Forget the Greek Gods Helen is the Queen. I did want to bring her home and trade in my wife but George was having none of it. The effort this family and staff put in to make your stay special is out of this world. It does not matter how busy they are they will always have time to assist you. The personal touch they give each guest is incredible. George my friend you are a great guy and I thank you and your family with all my heart for making our holiday special. Sorry George but the most special person I met was your father, what a guy, so kind and thoughtful. We will be returning next May with family and don't forget George to get the chocolate bricks in (ha ha).

Tip - Please do not pay for a bus transfer from the airport as it is a waste of money unless you want to spend two hours on a bus and then be dropped a long distance from the hotel, as the transfer bus cannot access the hotel as the roads are too narrow. We will be having a taxi next time.
