Creta Beach Hotel & Bungalows4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Me and my wife stayed here at the end of August this year. We stayed in one of the Standard Garden View (very much resembling the pictures on the official website). The room and all premises were clean and well maintained. The gardens look very nice, a pleasure to walk through them after dinner. The beach, although public (not fenced), is kept clean by the staff. Pool side is always full of people, especially since it is more protected from the strong winds. The staff is amazing, doing everyhting to make you feel welcomed and relaxed. From reception, to maintenance staff, to maitre d'hotel, they keep the wheels rolling so the patrons enjoy their time. The food is varied enough, three nights a week they have themed dinner and once per week, with reservation, you have the chance to have an a la carte dinner. There you can taste exquisite food, with impecable serving and varied types of local wine. We felt very good at Creta Beach and will be our first choice when we come back again in Crete.
very nice hotel, peacefull environment, beach with a lot of wind extra restaurant (food excellent) quality of service excellent a bus stop just in front of the hotel, easy to go to heraklion. Airport not far. good animation (in French and Deutch extra for a family !
This is an excellent choice if you want to drink your morning coffee in a peaceful environment surrounded by seawave noises! It's not limited to that though as the place offers a big and clean swimming pool, a small one for the kids, day and night activities and most important... great great food & drinks!!! The location is next to the beach but also a short drive (bus is passing by) to the city center and the highway, if you want to travel around (easy pissy to rent a car from one of the rental places near the hotel). The staff working there is really friendly and helpful, what else can someone ask for?!
The location is great the people are very helpfull and freindly the quality of food is excellent . Good velue for money , if you are staying there you can get evrything what you are need.The central location, just outside of Heraklion, provides for touring east or west by day trip. The airport is close by. The selling point is the friendly staff that speak several languages (English, French, German, maybe more, in addition to native Greek).
Any hotel in Greece is beautiful due to the Greek Hospitality, but this one is the best. Good,drinks, room, beach, Whatever? We just Want to say we love u and we love Greece. This hotel deserve 5 stars.
The outside of the bungalows is very nice with trees and grass. The breeze coming from the sea makes it even more nice. The food is average, the restaurant too. The bar is minimalistic. There is a lot of wind that makes it impossible to swim in the sea.
Most hotel accommodations are small, private, well kept "bungalows" with an easy walk to a spectacular beach. Breakfast and dinner are included and one night includes more elegant dining by the large salt water pool, also with an ocean view. One night of traditional Cretan folk dancing complete with a bouzouki band was also included that took place in the hotel's sunken amphitheater. The central location, just outside of Heraklion, provides for touring east or west by day trip. The airport is close by. The selling point is the friendly staff that speak several languages (English, French, German, maybe more, in addition to native Greek). The concierges (Giannis and Claire), chef, and hotel manager (George Perakis) interact with the patrons on a regular basis. The concierges spent a lot of time with us arranging our day trips just the way we wanted with a personal taxi driver. The chef was a tremendous help with my husband's dietary restrictions. The manager greeted the patrons each night on their way to dinner. We were sorry to leave all the personal attention for the big city (Athens).
Very family friendly, breakfast and dinner included, family style dinner 2 nights, excellent fine dining restaurant one night, beautiful beach, extremely helpful concierge which made out trip, good value, satisfactory rooom, very friendly staff with ample activities
I was very concerned prior to travelling due to a few negative comments on reviews but i can honestly say that my concerns vanished once we arrived and Giannis was there to greet us. Throughout our stay everyone was friendly, helpful and welcoming. We stayed in a standard garden Bungalow and one for my mother also. They were spacious, clean and close to the Beach and main facilities, This was ideal for my mother who is 83. The gardens , environment and general areas were kept clean and tidy. The beach area was clean in front of the hotel and easily accessible. The Maitre'd amazed me how he was present at all mealtimes always ensuring everything ran smoothly and getting to know all his guests. The food was excellent , a wide selection and how anyone can comment negatively i don't know. The main entertainment was focused on french speaking guests but there were members of the animation team that would translate to english and i believe there may be some change next year. We returned to England and for once my mum didnt complain about anything. That is a miracle in itself !!
The resort itself is fine, a beautiful spot just a couple of miles from Heraklion, the sea is glorious, the bar well appointed, the facilities clean and ideal. But what really made our stay was the staff. They couldn't do enough to help, from the cleaners to the bar staff to the porters and masseuses. I felt genuinely sorry to say goodbye to many of them, they are a credit to a wonderful island.
