I highly recommend the hotel Creta beach. This hotel is not a typical hotel with one main building, but cause it's hotel bungalow type arises there are many opportunities for leisure. Most would like to pick up hotel staff who are very friendly and helpful. Chef Nikos is a great professional and Maitre d 'restaurant (Sakis) is one of the...

My husband and I researched a ton of hotels and finally chose Creta Beach. We decided to go with the half board so we could eat at the hotel if we wanted, but still go out and enjoy other restaurants and taverns. It was a little confusing with the staff as hardly any of them knew the prices for anything!!...

Although we live near to Iraklion, where the hotel is situated, we decided to spend a weekend during July, on an all-inclusive basis, just because we needed relaxation. The hotel managed to meet this need of ours, thanks to its kind personnel and amenities. We stayed in a sea - view bungalow, which was recently renovated. The hotel's gardens are...

Creta Beach hotel was one of the most amazing hotel's I have stayed in. It's location was excellent due to its close proximity to the beach (literally steps away), airport (15 minutes away) & city centre (15 minutes away), and a boat ride (2 hours) away from key attractions like Santorini. Not only was the location an excellent fit, but...

I know that our opinions are subjective and the things that bothered me about this resort would be pluses for other people. I'm a seasoned traveler from the US who has lived abroad for the last 13 years in both Europe and the Middle East. I am most fond of boutique hotels or places that learn who you are and...

This is the second time we stay at Creta Beach and once again we spent a wonderful time. The hotel is actually a set of bungalows which are well isolated from one another, giving a great feeling of tranquility. You hardly see anyone as you walk back to your bungalow. They are all set in a parc which is very...

Overall slightly above average resort. I've been to some much better 4 stars, so this is what I'm comparing it to. The food was good, beach was amazing and great pool.

I decided to stay at Creta Beach hotel for a few days at the end of a bicycle tour around Crete. The hotel was the perfect place to soak up some sun and absorb a little bit of comfort before returning home to the UK. I stayed in the basic 'standard room'. The room was very clean and modern with...

The hotel looks old. The bathroom was so small! The breakfast was good, with a beautiful view. Private beach. Big pool. If needed, you can walk to buy anything you want on the street in front of the hotel. 24h markets. Staff was just ok. Lots of big groups from Germany, France. Good location if you have a car.
