The staff and the hotel are amazing. We found this hotel last minute and were genuinely surprised at how well run it was and how great the facilities and food were. I would recommend this to any family that is looking to get away and be close to the beach with awesome food.

This was our first stay at Cretan Dream Royal and it definitely won’t be our last! We were greeted by the general manager who was always on hand throughout our stay. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They made us feel so welcome and were extremely accommodating. The room was lovely, clean and comfortable with a gorgeous view from the balcony. The food was incredible and their waiting staff were very knowledgeable and on hand to advise us. The buffet breakfast was delicious with an amazing selection. I honestly can’t fault this hotel and I highly recommend it. We will definitely be coming back in the future!

What an amazing staff and wonderful hotel. The staff really go out of their way to make your trip. Food and drinks were amazing. Petros (the owner/manager) makes sure every detail is perfect. Rooms are very clean and well maintained. Can’t wait to go back for another stay.

First class property thoroughly enjoyed our visit in October 2021. The hotel offers the best of both worlds the standards and facilities you expected of a large resort but with the friendly and personal service you find in a small and friendly property. We stayed in a suite the rooms are tastefully decorated and spacious and the bed is the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The rooms have a coffee machine but there are also plans to add kettles for those who enjoy a Tea as well. I loved that there was both ac and a ceiling fan so there was no constant battle to find a perfect temperature with the other half to find the perfect balance. The bathrooms are spacious with shower and bath with good quality products too. The added robes and slippers make this a very comfortable place to stay. What sets the hotel apart from many I have stayed in previously are the staff, they are friendly and attentive, and nothing is too much trouble for them, even coming round the pool to take food a drink order. The food is stunning so fresh and tasty, and the portion sizes are plentiful we enjoyed breakfast and lunch at the hotel and was never disappointed with any of the meals we had. Due to other plans, we did not have an evening meal, but the menu looked great with something for everyone and when I go back next year will be staying for the evening meal, I hear the BBQ night is not to be missed. The same can be said for the drinks menus as well there is a wide selection of wines, spirits, and soft drinks. The cocktails are amazing, I worked my way through the menu (Why not when you’re on Holiday) and they are fresh and reasonably priced. There is plenty of space to dine inside and outside depending on your preference. During our stay it was slightly fresher in the late evenings as expected for October, but a nice touch was the availability of blankets to use just to keep the edge off when having a late evening drink. There is a fantastic spa in the hotel which I took advantage of and a well-equipped gym (not that I used it) There is an indoor pool area which was closed due to covid but looks inviting and a perfect place to read a book when it is open again. The hotel was spotless from the pool area and grounds to the public areas and the guest’s rooms. There is also a lovey smell in the reception and bar areas which makes you want to spend time in them. The crowning glory in the hotel is the Owner/Manager Petros he is very visible around the hotel and always greets you when he sees you. He is immensely proud of his hotel as he should be and strives to keep the hotel at its best. HE has some exciting plans for the property, and I can’t wait to come back and experience the changes he has in mind. The hotel and the staff are a cut above the rest, and I look forward to coming back again and exploring more of the beautiful Island of Crete. Thank you to all the staff for a great holiday and have a well-deserved rest over the winter, see you all in 2022.

From check in to departure the service and standards here are first class. Stayed in 522 in the newer part of the hotel. These suites are higher quality with all luxuries and mod cons expected. The beds are the comfiest I’ve experienced in a long time, the bathroom and shower are immaculate and have a spa feel to them. These rooms have sea views and spacious balconies. The added robes and slippers make this a very comfortable place to stay. What sets this hotel apart is the friendliness and relaxed approach of the staff. Always on hand to mix a fantastic cocktail by the pool or to recommend food from the menu. The food itself is mainly locally sourced and fresh reflected in the quality and flavour. Definitely worth having an evening meal here. The pool area again is immaculate and clean with plenty of spaced out sun beds. The infinity pool offering views over the sea and beach. We tried the spa and enjoyed massages which are discounted for hotel guests. The spa area and gym is very modern and has a real luxury feel to it. I didn’t want to leave. The final jewel in the royal crown is the friendliness and availability of the hotel owner Petros. He favours the personal touch and clearly strives to keep his hotel the best it can be and his guests happy. This truly sets this hotel apart from other 5* chain hotels. We will be visiting again! Thank you for a great holiday.
