Excellent vacation! Everyone at the hotel was frendly and helpfull, the chef does a great job, the fresh fish was amazing . The receptionists were as nice as can be, making this hotel a must return! The animation team , the wait staff, and all the bar tenders, should get a standing ovation. Bravo !
George. All the way from Pennsylvania
We had a great time at the hotel.
All inclusive. Everything was an up charge if you did not have the package. Food was extremely overpriced for its quality as was the hotel in general. Staff was nice and the beach was beautiful. But not a 4 star even for European standards. Not even close.
We booked a short break as we were in need of a good rest and this was the perfect place to go. Staff were lovely, food good, room fantastic, service excellent. With it's own really safe beach - wonderfully designed and engineered to make bathing pure fun. Good swimming pools. We particularly liked the fact that there was no need to carry cash around, free wifi (I needed for business), and reserved beds and 'cabins' on the beach for all rooms.
Went for a 4 day break to attend a friend's wedding. The accommodation we stayed in although basic met our needs needs and was spotless - there are more luxurious rooms available but for the price this was very good value.
The beach was less that 30 secs front our front door, the restaurant and pool areas less that a minute. The animation was mostly in French and not too much in your face which was good for us - it was there if you wanted to use it.
You can have lunch at the poolside if you want and the only critique or improvement would be for more food/snacks to be available throughout the day. Not really an issue as the high street and supermarket was a short walk. Enjoyed the stay.
The Creta Beach Hotel & Bungalows is a 4 –star hotel complex, situated only 5 km west of the city of Heraklion and 12 km …More
On arrival first impression was very good as the hotel and apartments are nestled away as the web site showed. Close to the sea with private beach and large pool.
As we relaxed on the narrow balcony after our flight from Athens to our disappointment our visual view of both the pool
and sea was obstructed from open view by the balcony wall and hand rails. As we sat in the 2 chairs our eye level was the same as the railings..........To enjoy what was indeed a very good panoramic view one had to stand up.
Then accepting perhaps being a little critical directly above the roar of a plane approaching Crete Airport........nothing had
been indicated on your web site nor in write ups?
The hotel situated some 15 kilometres from the main Crete airport was sited directly underneath the incoming flight path and with August being high season this meant planes arriving at between 20 to 30 minutes intervals. All day long from very early morning through into the early hours of the following morning.
Ad to this the thumping beat amplifiers blasted out from the beach bar through into the early hours one can say......
staying in the Hotel is a No! no!
Booking into the hotel we expected to have what hotels normally give.......peace and quiet within the room and not
the promotion of flights from Italy,France, Germany, Portugal, UK and main land Greece........and more besides!
Air conditioning?......wow! what a relic and stink!! the horrible smell being the A/C unit
