Stayed at Happy Cretan Suites for one week and wow what a stay! Definitely a four star hotel, the staff are very friendly and always want to help. The place is very clean, one thing I would say is that the cleaner does move everything in your room so make sure you remember where you put all your belongings. Genuinely couldn’t fault this hotel, the pool side is beautiful and very relaxing with the most gorgeous view of the sea. Location is ok, close to the beach and Agia Pelagia but have to get a taxi which costs around 30 euros to Heraklion, the city. Perfect stay for families, couples and friends. The breakfast is amazing, very tasty and the pianist really brightens up your morning. Dimitri is very friendly and provides you with everything you need! A must stay hotel.

We liked everything. There were a wide variety of options for breakfast, which ranged from croissants, omelettes, cakes, salad, fruit etc and we were also given a fruit cup and fresh orange juice daily. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. They greeted us every morning, offered advice about where to visit and always had smiles on their faces. We also had complimentary cakes or weather cards left in our room, which was very thoughtful. The room was amazing! It looked exactly as it was advertised. My pictures of our room looked like they were taken straight out of a magazine. The room was cleaned daily and we had zero issues. The wifi is brilliant all over the hotel and we could even cast from our phones to the tv. The pool was cleaned during our stay there and the sun warmed the pool, so it was not cold. The bathtub was also one of my favourite things. OMG! The views from all over the hotel were fantastic, even from our room. It was so lovely to wake up and have the views we had. There was also free parking. Finally, there is a petrol station 3 minutes away (by car) and the beach which had lots of places to eat and shop at, was about 6/7 minutes away (by car).

In my opinion, Happy Cretan Suites is a fabulous place to stay in Agia Pelagia, Crete. The rooms are in excellent condition, the housekeeping staff keeps them famously clean and tidy. The place is relatively remote, which really works well during covid-19 situation, but if you have a car, which makes your travels around the island easy, you have an easy access to three great nearby beaches, as well as multiple supermarkets, restaurants, and the center of the village.

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The pool area is excellent and provides opportunity to sunbathe as well as stay in the shade. The pool and jacuzzi are also very clean and well maintained.

The hotel has a fantastic gym, as the choice of equipment is great, there is ample space for it and the view from the gym is spectacular.

You can also borrow mountain bikes from the hotel.

The restaurant is great and we have thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast buffet, - delicious, fresh food and drinks and the choice is abundant.

The rooms are equipped with Marshall speakers and Nespresso machines!

Stayed here for several days and it was absolutely wonderful!
Instant peace and relaxation! The hotel rooms are beautifully designed with gorgeous Mediterranean natural colors and furnishings. The rooms have spectacular views and private terraces, The suites are very quiet, peaceful and kept meticulously clean, that force you to relax. The bed was more comfortable than the one I have at home! The room service was great, and the food was delicious! Did not know how much we really needed this type of vacation, looking at nature. So much nicer than staying in the city or on a busy beach,
We will be back and will recommend to friends and family!!! Very nice people running the hotel too!

The hotel is absolutely beautiful. We had a room with a garden view and it was lovely. The balcony was a great size and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The pool and area around the pool was beautiful. The food was delicious. Every meal we had was amazing. The best thing about the hotel was the service, everyone was so nice and friendly and always happy to help. As it is a small hotel you get to know all the staff which is lovely. Dimitris was also an absolute delight and so helpful. We were there during Covid times and the health and safety measures were fantastic. The staff were constantly cleaning and wearing face coverings the whole time. I’d go back to this hotel in a heartbeat. Amazing value for money.

Had the stone house with hot tub and sea view (235) excellent accommodation kept very clean. Restaurant food was great too with all staff on the site very professional, welcome at reception warm , friendly and genuine as most Cretans we’ve ever met always seem to be.Would definitely go back again, handy for Airport too about 20 mins ( € 40 Taxi booked from reception ) On an elevated site with great views to sea, gardens immaculate. Ongoing work as hotel is doubling in size below but not noisy or intrusive to your holiday. Due to be finished by next summer. Would still go again now with that going on but definitely go back as soon as possible.

From the moment we arrived, it was clear that this hotel prides itself on top-notch service. Dimitris, the owner, welcomed us warmly, setting a positive tone for our entire stay.

A special mention to Vera for preparing a spotlessly clean and well-presented room for us. Her attention to detail did not go unnoticed and was much appreciated.

Our evenings were made all the more memorable thanks to the exceptional service from the restaurant team. Dimokratis, Afroditi, and Alexandros ensured that our dining experience was nothing short of perfect, attentively looking after us throughout.

Breakfast was another delightful experience. Margarita greeted us with a smile and took the time to explain the breakfast offerings. Her warm demeanor was a great way to start the day.

Overall, our stay was an unforgettable one. Every staff member we encountered went above and beyond, making us feel truly valued. Highly recommended!

Me and my wife came here in October for a getaway, it has beating all expectations we had. This hotel is simply beautiful. Everything is clean and well kept, the rooms are designed amazing. What makes this place the best is the staff, everyone is smiling and they always go out their way for you.

Location wise it’s a bit in the middle of nowhere, we hired a car (there are car rentals close by if you wanted to decide to hire one during your stay). At first we thought the location could be a downfall, then we realised that was its charm! The whole time here we felt totally disconnected and relaxed.

Beautiful hotel with local nearby Cretan charm.

· We promised to return last year, so we did. I did not think that it is possible to make our stay better then last year, but the owner brought it to a new level. Again I have never received this level of service in any 5 star hotel. From the small deserts every day, to the small touches that absolutely blow every other accommodation out of the water, this is hands down one of the best places that you can stay in Crete! Breakfast is great, the pool is warm, the rooms are comfortable. I can only recommend this place, you have to experience it again! Thank you again Dimitris for the great stay!

This is our fourth time visiting Happy Cretan Suites. We have truly found somewhere in Europe that we can visit and feel instantly comfortable and at home. The accommodation, especially the new suites opened this year, are very minimal and tasteful, and appealing to my architects eye, just as we like it. A good walk to the village but we enjoy the hike down there in the evenings. We have built up a lovely relationship with the excellent staff and will return again next year.
