Cannot imagine how they've got 5 stars! More than basic hotel in the terrible location - nowhere to go outside the hotel. Instead of a large double bed we had two single beds just put together - absolutely unacceptable for 5 stars. Wi-Fi signal was very week, some days there was no connection at all. We addressed this issue to...

We have stayed in Avra in September 2016. It was not our first time in Crete, however, it was definitely not the best experience. The location of the hotel is very remote, not a lot of entertainment in the area around and long distance from Chania city. The main problem is the service. The receptionists were not helpful at all....

I travel here almost once a year with my family and it is a very nice hotel with great standard. It is rather pricey for Greece, but the lunch is excellent. Breakfast is good with DIY omelettes and juice, but stay away from the all inclusive package (you should do so in every hotel!). I personally find the standard double...

The personnel is friendly and well intended, the restaurants, pools and theaters are impeccable and the rooms fitted with the best items for a quality sleep and comfort. The variety of rooms and apartments is also a big plus,...

I had a great opportunity to stay at resort after winning a competition at work. Looking at the pictures of the resort online, I knew it looked amazing but I was not expecting it to be so spectacular. From the gorgeous swimming pools, great dinning (love all the different dishes they had on offer), seductive Spa to the fantastic rooms...

I had a wonderful three weeks at Avra Imperial Beach Resort & Spa. I especially enjoyed my room – the stylish choice of furniture, cleanliness and balcony with a view and privacy in every direction. There was a selection of wine and snacks in the room upon arrival – a nice touch to make you feel welcome. The service was...

All is very good or excellent in this resort: the restaurant, the rooms, the service, the pool, the personnel but if you are looking for real Greece you need to go out and find it. Highly recommended.
