I was there at the end of June with my mum. We spent here ten beautiful and lovely days.
I was totally surprised by the guest service. Everyone in the hotel was so friendly and helpful. We felt good and because of the flawless service, we can relax all the time.
Maria, the maid was perfect and she kept our room clean all the time. Anette helped us with everything and she hadn't a problem with anything. And boys from the bar were just delightful. And of course - everyone was always smiling.
I really enjoyed this holiday so much. Thank you again.

This has been our 4th visit to naiades almiros hotel. We as a family, with a teenage daughter love this hotel. The hotel has stylishly changed since our last stay in October 2017,with beautiful open plan wardrobes, fantastic comfy beds (although I couldn’t fault the beds previously) and a beautiful dining area, complementing the beautiful food. We noted little extras at breakfast time too! George and his family always give us a very warm welcome and we were invited to celebrated Georges birthday with him on our arrival. Also all of Georges staff are very friendly and helpful.
Last but not least, beautiful,kind,caring Annette, anything you need to know or would like to find out about she will do her best to help.if she doesn’t know at the time,she will do her best to find the information for you.always making sure you are ok,if there’s anything you need.we will definitely be back again!!!

After having a great holiday here last October we returned for a couple of weeks at the end of May and beginning of June. We had another fantastic time. My eldest daughter was so tempted by the photos we were putting on WhatsApp that she flew out and joined us for the second week. Annette moved heaven and Earth to fit her in as the hotel was understandably fully booked.
But that is just symptomatic of the attitude of Annette and all her family and staff. I've already written after our October holiday about how good the hotel is and there is little I can add. I like the fact that we can have peace and quiet but if we want a noisy loud atmosphere we can walk to the next hotel and there is the award winning beach a few minutes away. Agios Nikolaos is a lovely town 20 to 30 minutes walk away. If you hire a car there are lots of other little beaches and villages within easy driving distance. We totally recommend Naiades Almiros River.

Room Tip: Talk to Annette about your preferences e.g. ground floor or upstairs, near the pool or near the garden or near the common room

As with any holiday, the first impression of the hotel you are about to stay in is key. Naides Almiros River hotel did not disappoint. Tired and starving, we arrived late night at the hotel and were greeted by the two barmen/hospitality helpers (George and, I think Yannis). They gave us our key and served us with drinks and pizza. They were exceptionally accommodating, hard-working and friendly, and continued to be so throughout our holiday.

Our double-room had everything we needed, including a balcony area, good sized bathroom, small fridge freezer and a huge double bed. Air-conditioning is available on request and the hotel maid, Maria, is as thorough as she is likeable. Always cheerful and quick to greet everyone and, like all the staff, she made an excellent holiday even better! The hotel has a small swimming pool and plenty of sun beds to lounge in the glorious Cretan weather. The bar is open all day for drinks and you can order snacks and meals including gyros pitta and pizza throughout the afternoon. The food on the evening meal buffet was extremely tasty and varied each day. The chefs do an excellent job and cater to all tastes.

The second day we met the owner of the hotel, Annette. She was an amazing host and would do anything to ensure the guests had a comfortable stay. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the whole of Crete, having lived there and experienced the culture for many years. Annette gave us a number of excellent recommendations; from where best to park in Heraklion/Knossos, to which taverna gives free sunbeds, and that we should definitely visit Chrissi Island (one of the best experiences of my life, (covered in another review!)). Every day she took time to speak to all the guests, making sure we were enjoying our stay and getting to know us all. Annette made it feel as though we were staying with friends, and she always goes above and beyond for her guests, never failing to demonstrate excellent hospitality.

The hotel itself is located about a three minute walk from a beautiful golden beach, running parallel with the river. There are excellent tavernas and a mini-market within a ten minute walk, and another beach next to them. The town of Agios Nikolaos is a scenic twenty to thirty minute walk through the beach and along the coast, or a five minute eight euro taxi ride! There is even a mini-market right next door to the hotel. The location is fantastic and convenient for all types of holiday makers and really does provide something for everyone.

Naides Almiros River Hotel is a brilliant, intimate, quiet and friendly place, ideal for families and couples alike. It is as perfect for those seeking an adventurous exploration holiday as it is for those wishing to simply relax in the sunshine. It is great value for money and caters for many diverse needs. We did not want to leave Crete at the end of our holiday, and we definitely want to return!

Thank you Annette and the team for a wonderful holiday! Love Tom and Gina.

Ps. You need to try George's homemade raki. Just don't have too many bottles like I did or you may lose a day of your holiday!
