Grecotel’s munificent flagship resort on the Rethymno Riviera entices families, friends and fellow travellers looking for an encompassing holiday experience all in one place. It’s cosy, comfortable, casual .. yet classy .. and is all about what is good in a holiday resort. Grecotel itself suggests that it is a ‘paradise’ and they may not be far wrong. With 335...

We were warmly welcomed and accommodated! After a brief illness in Athens causing delay of several days of our arrival in Crete, the personal attention at check in on a sofa by the pool, welcome drink and snack, and wonderful news of an upgrade offered for the comfort of my husband were so appreciated. Our deluxe room was immaculate, spacious,...

Good choice for families with children as you due to couple of things. Hotel provides children food (snacks, lunch) during the whole day, so you don;t have any problems with it. Evening discos for children are very good. Overall hotel is very clean, staff is very nice. Rooms are a little bit old but clean. Hotel is good but a...

Very good hotel with a lot of amenities and spacious rooms. The most noticeable thing to me was the buffet area which was very big and with fresh local and international food. I recommend that you check for availability at least two months early if you plan a summer visit!

Nice hotel but some improvements needed: the kids Swimmingpool need serious renovation The salted pool was by contrast excellent. The buffet wine offer is quite poor. When you have kids, it does not mean you cannot drink good wines. The other restaurants (with excellent wines) were open too late to accommodate our smallest children. Personal very friendly in general Especially...

We stayed for ten days at the Creta Palace this October with our children and this was our third time back. We had a wonderful stay, which we booked directly with Mr. Dinas who was extremely obliging and helpful, as always. The facilities at the hotel remain excellent everywhere. The staff is generally extremely friendly, polite and obliging. We were...

When you just get there the first impression is really good, but few hours later you start realizing that many things are not up to a 5 stars hotel. There's a huge difference between the rooms either in the main building and in the backyard little houses: some of them are really poor with a bad view. They don't pay...

We had a lovely summer holiday in this luxury hotel! Service, food, accomodation and beach are on the very high level! Animation team was so great, especially for kids. They provided a lovely excurcion to the hotel owner's farm in the mountains with a lovely dinner and sunset. Egean sea - is a separate item of happiness for swimmers and...

We stayed here from 15th October which happened to be the German and Dutch school holidays. We love children but there were far too many at this hotel to be comfortable. I would avoid this time if at all possible. Most families seemed to have 3 or 4 children, some even more - all wanting a sun lounger. We had...
