We have just come back from 12 days at this hotel, 2 adults, 2 children (13,16) . It was our first time vistiting Crete and found it a lovely island. The hotel has a nice friendly feel, from the lovely bar staff, cleaners and restaurant staff, and the animation team do a great job, with volleyball on the beach to aqua arobics everyday in the pool, and putting on a family show of Grease in the amphitheatre. We received our complimentory mini back massage from the ladies in the Spa which was fantastic. Our hotel room was on the ground floor near the amphitheatre, which wasnt a problem as entertainment finished by 10.30 'sh. The rooms were a little basic with a large bathroom/shower room and a main double bedroom with twin beds in a separate room with a door in between, there was a garden terrace at the back. But plenty of storage.The quantity and quality of the food from breakfast, lunch to dinner was quite amazing, everything you could wish for and more. With the pool bar also offering drinks, cakes and icecream all day till 5.45. Also the selection of the all inclusive drinks was very in pressive too; including fizzy drinks, wine, beers, spirits and alcoholic cocktails. Getting a sunbed by the pool was impossible most days but with the beach being so very close we found it better being there and certainly less crowded. You could hire pedlos, jet skis and do paragliding which was great fun, even though the sea was rocky when you first got in, you could easily buy some seashoes from the shop next door, and the sea was lovely to do some snorkelling in with wonderful fish. We visited Hersonassis twice in the evening (only 5-10mins) in car for 8 euros and the hotel reception staff were happy to order taxis for us. Finally, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would defiantly go back.

No early mornings for sunbeds

We went as a two families (another couple joined us later for a week) and had a lot of laughs. The good points were you could go down at 9.00 and still get a sunbed - in fact most of the time we were looking for nine beds with no problem. We had the family room which was a good size but some of the other rooms our group had did not have enough storage. Pool never seemed over busy and the beach is close by. All areas are clean and kept tidy. Plenty of good laughs with the main bar staff. Also our children got more involved with the poolside games which they have never usually bothered with. Free WiFi good all round the hotel. The negative points were the food after 2 weeks did become a bit boring - for example we only had bacon for 2 mornings during our stay - always loads of egg dishes and loads of pork. Also the theme nights seemed to be the same dishes with one or two different dishes which might relate to the theme. They do cook fish but you have no idea what the fish is as the only description is FISH. The all inclusive bar is only open to 11.00pm - after that you have to pay - so of course the bar empties quickly. Also only 1 of the 2 bars is open at anyone time (main bar or pool bar). The only time both bars is open was for pool party night BUT you had to pay for drinks if you got the drink from the pool bar, so everybody goes to the main bar and 2 members of staff are standing around at the pool bar doing nothing. The SPA was good but do not go to the room near the indoor pool as besides the noise of people in the pool or using the gym you can also hear people working in the kitchen.

Our 12 day stay in Zorbas Village

We have just returned from Crete - Zorbas Village hotel. Me and my wife with our 2,5 years old daughter were there for 11 nights. Our stay met our expectations. The hotel complex consists of several small buildings and beautiful garden with lots of flowers and palm trees. ROOM: We were accomodated in the first floor, so we did not have any problems with ants or any other insects. Anyway....the temperature in the room under the roof was very high, and air conditioning was blowing at me while sleeping in the bed (I tried to set the direction of the air, but the room is small and the air was always blowing at the bed). The room was clean, but sometimes the cleaning lady forgets something (to close the balcony, to clean the floor in the balcony,...). There were electric kettle with coffee and tea in the room. Of course there were minibar too, but only with one complimentary bottle of water after our arrivall. I don't understand the hotel "water" strategy. The water in the room is not drinkable, because it is unsalted water from the sea. The water in the pool bar is very very bad tasting (even the soda water). The water in the restaurant is relatively OK, but it was restricted to fill the bottle. So any possible way to have a drinkable water is to go outside and buy it (6 bottles for 2,-€). It is not a big problem, but "all inclusive" concept should be more logical with some drinking fountains with possibility to refill the bottle, or complimentary bottles in minibar for each day. The another thing I cannot understand is the tresor in the room. Why it is charged 3 eur per day? The tresor is default component of every room, so why the extra charge? I must mention the internet wi-fi connection. It was almost everywhere....in public areas and also in our room. Sometimes there were some signal drops and disconnections, but nothing problematic. So big plus for the internet connection. The last thing about the room.....I found blight under the wall light... FOOD: The food was nice and tasty. I am vegetarian and did not have any problem with choosing the right food for me. My wife is vegan (no milk and eggs) and sometimes she had hard times, but there were always salads, breads and fruit (melon, grapes, apples). The main restaurant have different themed nights (arabian, greek, italian, mexican,...). It is nice diversity, but the main part of the food is always the same. Sometimes I was not able to find something different from the dinner day before. Generally I liked the soups, pastas, pizza, all sortiment of oils, fruit and coffee (yes, the coffee was quite good for the hotel coffee). It will be nice to have more traditional greek cakes (I saw it only twice). The cakes for the lunch and dinner usually consists of many similar kinds of jelly and puddings. I am a cake "freak" and I was sometimes dissapointed, that I cannot choose from the jellys and creams because I don't like them and there were not any normal cakes. I think there should be more fruit cakes (not creams and jellys) and as mentioned greek cakes. There were also ice cream and it was tasting good. However the juices and jams were not tasting very good....they were tasting very artificial. The non-alcoholic coctails were horrible (usually just mix of articial juices), but the alcoholic coctails were good. The local wines were tasting ok. We had rental car for 5 days so we tried to order the lunch boxes. The receptionist and also anyone in the restaurant did not know what means "vegan food", so we tried to explain them. No success......First day we even received ham in the bread....the second day "just" lot of cheese, and the third day a lot of ham and cheese.....so we gave up and last two days we ate outside without lunch boxes. Anyway...the lunch box consists of toast with feta cheese (or edam), crackers, small juice in the box, small bottle of water, apple and sometimes orange. There is possibility to have a dinner in the a la carte restaurant (once a vacation for free). It was good experience, with tasty food. They even prepared the vegan food for my wife. POOL and BEACH: AI concept includes the towels (without deposit). They can be changed in the SPA every day. The pool area is quite small for that size of resort, so it was every day crowdy. The hotel complex has also pool for children (behind the fence) and the kids club. This area was nice and sized reasonably. The beach was filled with small pebbles mixed with hard sand. The sea was clean, but....the sea bottom is rocky and not very good for children or older people. We must wear the water shoes every time in the sea. The beach and pool umbrellas alnd loungers are of course free. There is wi-fi signal even in the beach :-) Two days we had very big waves with red flag, so there was no chance to go to the sea. I suggest to rent a car and go to the beach somewhere else. We have found a lot of spectacular beaches within 1-2 hours of driving. RENTAL CARS: In the hotel surroundings there are several rental companies and one is even in the hotel. I must say that the hotel rental guy have prices unreasonably high. Go outside and compare the prices and cars. We had car class B (Toyota Yaris 2013 1,4) for 5 days fot 42eur per day. We used our car for a lot of beautiful trips (800 km total). We were in Ierapetra (and Crissi island), Agios Nikolaus, Spinalonga Island, whole Lasithi area with Psyhro Cave, and Agiofaraggo (the most peacefull trip with nice beach at the end). The car is a must, because the hotel surrounding consists only of few shops, hotels, and rental companies.....nothing more. SUMMARY: Our vacation in Zorbas Villages was GOOD, we enjoyed the nice garden and polite staff. The rental car upgraded our experience to the VERY GOOD vacation. Thank you.

What a fantastic holiday. The hotel is a very nice size, the buildings are no higher than 2 floors and we found the area very quiet, we were close to the amphitheater but the entertainment ended between 22:30 & 23:00. Of which the animation team did a brilliant job keeping us all entertained. The pool area is very clean and we had no problems getting a sunbed, provided you don't turn up about 11:00am. The staff are very friendly and helpful should you require it. A short hop..literally across a small quiet road and you're on its own private beach which is raked and cleaned daily, there are plenty of fish for the snorkellers to find. Our room was a family room and was very comfortable with plenty of space for us all. Our only gripe was, we are 4 adults ( kids, 23 & 20) but we only had two cups for evening coffee, not worth complaining about though. All in all a wonderful venue and we highly recommend it
