We spend one week from 12th to 19th October 2020 in Happy Cretan Suites in Agia Pelagia. All the hotel, the fantastic sea view from all the bedroom and suites (we were in the stone suite), a very friendly staff and all the prevention against covid-19 were perfect by anyone working there. The restaurant is also really delicious, with different Cretan and Minoan cuisine... with an excellent cocktail bar in front of the swimming pool. We will comme back with a great pleasure!

· We promised to return last year, so we did. I did not think that it is possible to make our stay better then last year, but the owner brought it to a new level. Again I have never received this level of service in any 5 star hotel. From the small deserts every day, to the small touches that absolutely blow every other accommodation out of the water, this is hands down one of the best places that you can stay in Crete! Breakfast is great, the pool is warm, the rooms are comfortable. I can only recommend this place, you have to experience it again! Thank you again Dimitris for the great stay!

The hotel is absolutely beautiful. We had a room with a garden view and it was lovely. The balcony was a great size and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The pool and area around the pool was beautiful. The food was delicious. Every meal we had was amazing. The best thing about the hotel was the service, everyone was so nice and friendly and always happy to help. As it is a small hotel you get to know all the staff which is lovely. Dimitris was also an absolute delight and so helpful. We were there during Covid times and the health and safety measures were fantastic. The staff were constantly cleaning and wearing face coverings the whole time. I’d go back to this hotel in a heartbeat. Amazing value for money.

Stayed at Happy Cretan Suites for one week and wow what a stay! Definitely a four star hotel, the staff are very friendly and always want to help. The place is very clean, one thing I would say is that the cleaner does move everything in your room so make sure you remember where you put all your belongings. Genuinely couldn’t fault this hotel, the pool side is beautiful and very relaxing with the most gorgeous view of the sea. Location is ok, close to the beach and Agia Pelagia but have to get a taxi which costs around 30 euros to Heraklion, the city. Perfect stay for families, couples and friends. The breakfast is amazing, very tasty and the pianist really brightens up your morning. Dimitri is very friendly and provides you with everything you need! A must stay hotel.
