The one positive thing about this hotel is location- it is right on the beach front line. This part of the beach is in my opinion the best on the whole coast from Rethymnon to Skaleta. It is the only possible reason why you could choose this hotel. Otherwise, the hotel makes an awful impression once you step in your...

After choosing to leave our previous hotel due to a bad experience with the hotel management we booked Creta in a bit of a panic! Choosing Creta was the best descision we could have made. We received a warm welcome even though we later found out that the previous hotel had contacted the manager and warned him about us!!! We...

It's a nice hotel , well localized, with friendly staff. All of them speed russian. About food I can only say that it's tasty but you don't have a big choice. There are no fruits (*just at lunch). If you want to travel cheep -it's a good choice. Been there from 15.06.2016-19.06.2016.

Though Creta Residence was not a 5-Star Resort, it was a good property that was steps from the ocean. The hotel manager and the cleaning staff were VERY friendly during our weeklong stay! They were wonderful and accommodating...even with the language barrier. Our room had 3 twin beds, scratchy sheets, a very dingy shower curtain, and a shower that had...

The worse hotel ever.Dirty badroom, kitchen and restaurant dirty and smells horribly.Poor choice of food.Food cold.Drinks in plastic, not glas.Manager not friendly.Wifi doesnt work.Dirty windows,carpets...just everything.Better to book some apartment in near area and choose restaurants and bars around- they are a lot there.Will be cheaper and more comfortable.We are very disapointed about Creta Residence.

The hotel is not anything like the pictures. It's VERY old and hasn't been renovated in many years.. I would not characterize this as a 3 star hotel at all. More like a 1 star hotel. The room was very small and the bed was below standard. We had to put towels to lie on because the madras was so...
