This hotel was very central to the sights of Heraklion. Right next to the port/sea. Breakfast was delicious, well looked after by staff. All modern amenities, very clean and glamorous. A+. We were there as a couple, our room had beautiful sea views. The roof top pool was great to relax at.

The room is large, beautifully furnished, and luxurious. The location is right in the heart of Heraklion. The staff is friendly and responsive. There is a beautiful rooftop pool overlooking the bay, although when I stayed there (October) it was a bit too cold to go for a swim. Most importantly, the service is absolutely incredible. The morning of my...

We spent 14 nights at Megaron and used it as a base to explore Crete. In retrospect it was a long way to the west coast so we should have planned two bases.
