Just returned from a 10 day holiday at Creta Beach and I have to say it was outstanding. We had a bungalow which was very good. Everything was cleaned to a high standard every day. The food was excellent. The pool area was good with a very good snack bar. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would...

I would say the initial check-in was a bit off for us (oddly quiet and a surprising amount of rules!), but once we were settled and made our way to the pool everything opened up. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool is nice and has a great view of the sea, with easy/quick access to drinks and...

Just returned from a long weekend break at Creta Bungalows and this will rate as one of our best holidays. So a quick review; We arrived to a very welcoming receptionist, who upgraded us to a Bungalow room, as it transpired we had (to my dismay) only booked a standard room (booking issue and not the hotel's fault at all)...

The Creta Beach Hotel in Heraklion was our "2nd home" for a week and its staff and accommodations were excellent. We had a bungalow a few feet from the beach which meant that each morning we woke up to the ocean and sky in front of us--delightful! We cannot say enough about the staff, and that means everyone! At each...

We have just returned from a weeks, all inclusive break at Creta Beach Hotel and Bungalows. We arrived at the hotel late on the Wednesday evening and were given a very warm welcome by the gentleman on reception. He checked us in, gave us relevant information and personally showed us to our (upgraded) bungalow where two plates of tea and...

this place is great. i don/t know about the food because we didn't have it, but the appartements are really big and the price is so so cheap. when you step out of the app you can see the view of the beach and you can go take a dip in the hotel pool. the only bad thing is that...

We stayed for a week with my mother and my 6 month old baby. This hotel is close to Heraklion city and airport, which makes it easy to access and a perfect spot for a quick fix for a warm week by the warm sea. We stayed at a bungalow. It was very nice and clean, sheets were super soft...

Just got back from a 2 weeks holiday at Creta Beach. We had an amazing time and enjoyed our stay a lot. The food was by far the best and most varied food we ever had on an all inclusive plan in Europe. In addition to the regular pastas, salads and chicken/pork, we had veal, fish, seafood, lamb, duck and...
