This all inclusive hotel suits well for a seaside vacation, especially for families with kids. There is not much settlements/towns around, the closest is Rethymno which is 12km away, but there are a few shops (including one in the hotel) where one can buy almost everything. Food is great comprised from dishes of various kitchens for people with different tastes....

We had a very good ten nights stay in this hotel. The location is good even if it's a bit isolated from shops and activities. There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel, anyway we strongly recommend to rent a car to visit the beautiful Crete island... We also recommend to book a room with sea view,...

The WORST place I have ever been. Staff unhelpful, bedrooms extremely smelly, dated and little...A/C in the bedroom was asthmatic, several power cuts leaving people stuck in the lifts, fire alarm going off at 2am....and all is going to be fine....and being told "it happens all the time". Hotel activities....well...that was even a bigger joke....overall...Never ever again.

Lovely hotel. Clean with good facilities. Right on their own private beach which was perfect - except you do have to pay for sun beds on there but we were happy doing that on some days to get better ones than the ones left by the pool by the time we got down! A bit out of the way but...

An April holiday makes for quite a saving on flights and accommodation but what’s the point if the accommodation is not up to standard?! Well, this is not an issue at Creta Star, the hotel is excellent, and a level above ‘normal’ standards! This is our second visit to this hotel, and, the first time in our quite extensive holiday...
