Just returned from holiday. Hotel very clean and staff very helpful. Grounds are immaculate. We were on an all inclusive holiday and the food was generally very good with a good choice. Irini who works at the lower pool bar is fantastic. Always smiling and more than happy to help. Petros and Tatiana in the dive centre were really helpful and made our dive a great experience. Looking forward to the next holiday here

Very nice hotel; Not a luxury

Pros: 1. We were at an all inclusive deal, so it's great to have food and drinks all the tine without going around with your wallet. 2. Nice entertaiment team. Can't believe I actually waited for their evening show. 3. The entertaiment team also took care of activities during the day which is nice, because you can sometimes get bored for sitting in the pool and reading a book all day. They organize volleyball, fitness training, basketball in the water etc... 4. Although it's fun not to do much, I strongly recommend taking half an hour walk outside the hotel (you go out and turn to the left). Beautiful scenery and sea view! 5. Nice and welcoming staff in the reception and bars. It's nice that you ask for alot of stuff to drink and eat and the bartenders are always keen to help. 6. Nice rooms with balcony. 7. No wifi in the rooms, only the lobby - started as a con and ended as a pro where I could actually enjoy a relaxing vacation. Trust me on this. Cons: 1. No variety of food. After the 2nd day, you get the hang of it and it doesn't really changes. The food is really ok, just not special. 2. No water slides 3. Not especially romantic- I guess that the fact we walked around and saw other hotels, made us realised that there are better romantic hotels (sometimes just near where we were). 4. There are two main pools but there are other hotels where you have pools for batch of rooms (for examplefor rooms 901-910) and even a private pool for each room. There are also hotels with more sophisticated pools (more designed, not just rectangular). To sum it up: the hotel is great and has a high standard, it's just not a luxury, compared to how other hotels looked like and it's ok.

This is a brilliant resort, with very helpful staff who went out of their way to make me and my families stay better. Me and my husband went with my husbands parents and our three children aged 2, 1 and 10weeks. We arrived just before midnight and were quickly checked in and helped to our rooms by a porter. The rooms were very clean and tidy, our family room had a double bed and an alcove with a single bed and travel cots for my younger two. On One of the travel cots the one side didnt lock properly so we were going to inform reception about in the morning and before we could our maid had noticed (when cleaning room) and brought a new one for us. As we were in a family room we had a patio area and a little shared garden which our kids loved. We were all inclusive and it was well worth it, we had food and drinks available all day long: breakfast 7-10am, lunch 12:30-2:30, dinner 6:30-9:30pm, snacks 10am-6pm and drinks from breakfast until 12am. The variety of food is great as well. Everywhere in the hotel is clean and tidy. The pools are great however the indoor heated pool was not heated when we went in. There are gym and spa facilities however we did not use these. There is a little shop on the resort which stocks most things and if you gave them notice would probably be able to order something they didnt have for next day. On the last day we ran out of formula for our son and all of the staff we dealt with were very helpful, the shop said they could get us a tub for next day (but we were leaving tht night), the maitre d and kitchen/waitresses tried their best to help and the receptionist ended up ringing the local pharmacy and getting them to send us some milk up in a taxi (so we didnt have to pay 2 taxi fares or walk to hersonissos) and we had the formula within half an hour. The beach is literally on the doorstep of the resort and although it is a shingle beach not sand my kids loved it and its easier to get clean afterwards as once your dry it just wipes off. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, though a little warning, there is a lot of steps, we managed for a week with two pushchairs though and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We had a great week at this resort, it was our first experience of this type of beach resort holiday, all inclusive, and we loved it. We had a couple of organised trips with the tour operator and spent rest of time walking and lazing by the pool. Staff very friendly attentive. Main a la carte restaurant not open until June hence only four stars

Tourist Information

Weather

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!

Jabs

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.

Electricity

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.

Visa

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