We found this hotel to suit our requirements for a family summer Holiday. Made the booking directly via hotel's website, which I can recommend because of the personal service that followed, and therefore we got the best room. Also hotel arranged for pick-up at the airport. The hotel standard is very good. Compared with other Greek hotels, this is 5...

This hotel is very good. Hotel is spotlessly clean. Food is of a good standard in Buffet restaurant and the a la carte restaurant. Staff are professional and very polite and helpful. Only downside to us was the pool was very cold and therefore not used very much. I would certainly stay here again on any future visits to Crete

I spent one week in Cretan Dream Royal in September and loved almost everything in it. The rooms were comfortable, the pool area was big and cozy, the view from the pool area to the sea was spectacular. Can't complain about anything. The staff was friendly - except one waitress was constantly unfriendly towards my sister.... That was odd. Oh,...

Just coming to the end of our 10 nights in Crete. This hotel has been terrific !! Staff and service has been delightful and would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Crete. Chania is very close by and having travelled around the west if the island - this hotel is located really well.

We had a wonderful weeks holiday at the Cretan Dream Royal. It exceeded our expectations of a 5 star Greek Hotel. The customer service was outstanding, from the chambermaid to the Maitre'd, all were attentive and friendly and could not do enough for you. The hotel was spotless with the room thoroughly cleaned every day. We were half board and...

As fussy as we are, we could find nothing to complain about at this hotel. The standards are so high, every inch of the place is spotlessly clean, and the staff are just amazing. Having read previous reviews, there was a concern about the food, but the only disappointment for us was when the outside barbecue ceased for evening meals....

When I read some complaints on trip advisor about the Cretan Dream Royal, I was a tad concerned. However, after 2 weeks of holiday there, I wonder sometimes what makes people happy. This hotel is fantastic. The staff are very helpful and friendly, from the 2 ladies at reception, the staff at the pool bar, and the restaurant staff. The...
