Just returned from a week at the Cretan Dream and can find little fault with it. It was just what we needed - a week of total relaxation in a beautiful setting. We booked an apartment which was fantastic (room 413) with all the facilities needed to keep a girl like me happy: plenty of electrical sockets; lots of mirrors;...

Lovely modern hotel, not a resort so it must feel very busy later on in the season,with only one pool and pretty but relatively small gardens. Kato Stalos is nothing special, nor very pretty but this hotel is perfectly positioned to explore Chania (beautiful and so very lively at night) and many amazing places in West Crete. The hotel is...

Stayed for a week....this hotel is one of the nicest we have stayed in. The staff are uber friendly and the place is kept spotlessly clean. The breakfast selection was amazing, and the amount of staff on hand to keep everything going was good to see. Points re hotel: Good location....far enough away from the main Stalos drag to feel...

We stayed at Cretan last week. Ideal location for us - far enough out of the huddle but close enough to walk into it and get the bus to chania Room was a good size and very clean - all credit to the housekeepers - shame no bath though Food was good - breakfast and dinner - might have struggled...

Best hotel I've stayed in for more than a night. We went half board, the food was excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough! We got upgraded to a suite, they made our towels into heart shapes and swans, the room was kept to a very high standard. It was a fantastic experience!

Just home from the "Culture of Crete" Tour, organised by GTI. We stayed in the 5 Star Cretan Dream Royal Hotel, which was an absolute delight. We were really well looked after, and made to feel very welcome, by all of the staff, who were very professional, always pleasant and helpful. The food was varied and delicious. The pool area...

We spent 7 wonderful nights at the Cretan Dream Royal in May. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive, nothing was ever too much, from the waiting staff at breakfast and dinner to the cleaners and without the best barman in Crete, Manolis who was always friendly and up for the craic every night! Fantastic food to suit every taste,...

We've just returned from a 14 night stay at this extremely well run hotel and are looking forward to going back again. We like to book holidays in different places usually (only once in 31 years going back to the same hotel) but we loved this hotel so much we will definitely be making an exception!

I stayed for 10 nights at the Cretan Dream Royal during May 2015 with my wife and our 2 year old daughter. The hotel is very nice, with large rooms (we had a 2 room suite with sea view). One of the reasons we chose this hotel was due to the fact there was a playground advertised onsite. The playground...

We stayed here for two weeks in april-may 2015 and were very pleased with our stay. Our baby was 9 months during the stay and I can recommend this hotel to families as well, although the children's playground seemed rather outdated. We had a two-room apartment at the third floor near the pool. There was construction work going on with...
