From one side, location, views, exteriors and facilities look amazing. Big rooms, with tarace and sea view are also impressive. But furnitures, bars, overall interiors look like being there from 90'. Bathrooms are not well organised. Small bath with curtain, its not what you expect from 5 stars. And also bed.. we spent 7 days on a "double bed" which...

We have always found the bedrooms clean, comfortable and offer fantastic views overlooking the Aegean sea. Being all inclusive suits our needs very well, we found the food using the hotel restaurants was an enjoyable experience because there is always a wide range of local food to choose from each day, whether is be breakfast, lunch or dinner. The pool...

My daughters (12 and 9) and I had a lovely week at the Athina. The staff and the food stand out as particular highlights. Very friendly welcome and continued warmth throughout the week.

Everything was excellent - the hotel, the staff, the weather!!!! We found the only negatives were the limited access to surrounding areas of Crete where we would have liked to travel to and although the food was always excellent, it could have been a hotter temperature as we are used to hotter food at home but overall these are minor...

We loved our stay in Crete at CHC Athina Hotel! The hotel has activities for couples, solo travellers and family with children. SPA, swimming pool, private beach and children's entertainment, to list a few. We went as a couple and were a bit worried we'd see children running and crying out loud. However we didn't experience such scenes and were...
