It is the third time i spent my holidays in this hotel, and also this time i must say that i have been kidnapped by the awfulness of Peninsula Resort. Peninsula is a perfect marriage showed by the cohesion between experience, good taste and a seriously respect for customers. i found here relax, comfort and good food. Also the accomodation has been fantastic....the rooms, simply welcoming, respect the traditional cretan style. Hotel staff is always careful to satisfy any claims by customers. Honorable mention to the reception's team (Sofia, the wize Footini, Anna, Georgia, Maria and the 2 guys of the night)always helpful for any need and calm in every situation. At the end i conclude my rewievs by saiyng " TRY TO BELIEVE"

We took our 7 year old and 4 year old to the Peninsula and had a wonderful 2 week holiday. Our family 'bungalow' was just as lovely as the pictures and we enjoyed the panoramic views. The food was delicious and it was refreshing not see a chip for two weeks :-). The room was kept beautifully clean and all the staff were friendly and helpful. We tend not to revisit places so unlikely that we'll go back but I'd highly recommend this hotel and I think we'll struggle to find somewhere so nice on our budget. My personal favourite thing to do was jumping off of the jetty into the clear blue sea and bobbing around, sometimes snorkelling to look at the variety of fishes swimming beneath.
