Cretan Garden
Ranked #16 of 32 Hersonissos B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 July 2016

I got back yesterday from Cretan gardens. There were 2 negatives. One was the shower was not powerful and one of the cleaners put the shower head down which I did not like and also the beds were not comptorbale. Tony at the bar was excellent and wore 2 socks over his ears. Whenever one of my favourite songs came on he turned it up louder.

Room Tip: Ask for a room opposite the pool.

After some confusion with tripadvisor/booking.com reservations (see my review of Aldemar Cretan Village), we ended up here and could not have been happier. I think this is the place I intended to book. This is a small property that is family owned and run. They will make you feel like family. The owner picked us up in her personal vehicle when we had ended up at the wrong hotel. The rooms are basic but immaculate. And when you have your own balcony overlooking the pool and the sea, what more do you need? The pool is lovely and spacious. The bar and dining areas (both indoor and outdoor) are delightful. But the food is the best part. Yes the price includes breakfast and dinner which have many selections and often use local homegrown food. The beach is about a 5 minute walk. If you are missing anything (in our case an umbrella), just ask at the office as they have all sorts of items. The staff really make this place special. They are Greek and American so English is not a problem. The price and service cannot be beat. Simply put, go here!

Room Tip: get a room with a sea view

I like this place becuase its not in the middle of the noise, its on top of the hill, only about 300-400 meters away from the beach. Its not the best place for people who want to be all day on the beach and who want to have everything in the next 20-30 meters... But if you are looking for a good hotel with nice view, friendly staff, good food you can give it a go.
The owners are very friendly and are always there to help you if there is something you want to change.
Keep up the good work

If you want a quite, restful, well run hotel, this is perfect. It is situated about 10 minutes walk or less from the beach. There are two supermarkets and a lovely restaurant just a few minute's away.

It is family run between Connie, George and Mary who made so welcome that we felt like one of the family. Or the rest of the staff were very courteous and helpful, especially Tony the barman who made great cocktails and also managed the music dealing with requests. The receptionist would always call a taxi to take into town which cost 7 euro's each way and was there to assist and advise in any excursions you might require.

The food was well cooked and plentiful, all the vegetables were home grown by George.

There was a pool that was cleaned daily with plenty of sun lounges, also a pool table near by, a tennis court, mini golf and a small children's play area.

We stayed in a superior room which had a lovely walk in shower and was well furnished with a pool view.

It has to be one of the best holidays we have had in the last 30 years and we most certainly be returning in 2016

Room Tip: Superior room over looking the pool.
