Fab Holiday in Sunny Crete

15 January 2015

This is a lovely hotel. Really clean, lovely gardens, no high rise buildings, just two storey blocks. Fresh flowers in the room and on the tables in the dining room. Complimentary safe with a key...

We had a great experience at the Coco Rio (our 11th year staying there)! The hotel is small, clean, attractive, and, for the most part, quiet. The staff is outstanding. Juan Carlos responds promptly to requests for info or reservations. His English is excellent and he is always pleasant and helpful. Angel is friendly and equally helpful. We look forward to another year!

Pleasant comfy and clean

17 December 2014

Upgraded to this hotel after a bad start to our holiday. Room was lovely with views over the sea and set in pretty gardens. The room also had a cute little balcony to enjoy an evening glass or two...

Small hotel. My girlfriend and I stayed there for 9nights and we were looking for adventures activities todo and the guy up front in the reception helped us out with all of our activities. His name is Angel. Because of him we went to Chichen Itza to see the temples and more stuff. Then, he reserved us a space to go snorkeling in cancun and after snorkeling they took us to Isla Mujeres. While we were going to isla mujeres on the boat, which was a party boat, there was unlimited free alcohol drinks which was fun with music along. Angel also angel reserved a spot for us to go swim in a cenote, if you don't know what it is...google it. Its a pretty cool place to go swim in. Loved it! We did a bunch of fun activities. Because of the help of Angel at Coco Rio everything went perfect and smooth as planned. He gave us great deal for my girlfriend and I with transportation included and lunch for all activities. Angel always called the truck driver to double check on stuff and not to forget to come pick us up. Hotel was great, I mean its not a five star but then again we were barely at the hotel.

Nice place for a family holidays

16 November 2014

I was at this hotel for a business meeting (actually, I booked at the nearby hotel, ut it was overbooked and I had to move to Annabelle Hotel). It's a nice place for the holidays. Lovely gardens...

Situated in the heart of Carmen, this hotel gives you the money's worth. If you only stay a couple of nights and don't require a swimming pool it's a great choice. It is nice, clean, fresh and the staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and could definitely go back here next time we visit Carmen.

Lovely and highly recommended for people with food intolerances

29 October 2014

This is a lovely resort with incredibly helpful staff. Because I have to eat gluten free and was half board, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to eat much for breakfast or dinner. However, every...

The hotel is very clean, staff is friendly, cable TV in room and internet. I Just didn't give the excellent rate because the second time i stayed here, they put me in the room right next to the reception where i could here the music from there and it has no ventilator. So keep away from this room if you can!

Tourist Information


Hersonissos enjoys a beautiful temperate Mediterranean climate, with long, hot summers. June to September is the warmest time of the year, most popular, and best time for getting on the beach. August can bring seasonal northerly winds, but this is also the hottest month and the refreshing breeze is often welcomed.

Spring is a lovely time to visit, with bursts of wild flowers and fresher weather. Autumn is also pleasant as the resort begins to wind down after the peak summer month crowds fade away. Only in the winter does the weather become less idyllic with occasional rain showers and overcast days. Even in the depths of winter the weather in Crete is still better than in the UK!


All travellers are advised to ensure that tetanus and polio vaccinations are kept up to date. A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required from all travellers over one year of age coming from infected areas.


The power supply in Greece is 220 V AC at 50 Hz. You may require an adapter for the round two-pin sockets in use in Greece. Power cuts are not uncommon.


Many visitors to Greece will not need to obtain a visa for visits to Greece of up to 90 days.
