We went to the creta panorama and mare late September and from the minute I walked through the doors I knew we would have a great holiday . Check in was excellent quick and efficient and as we arrived at midnight the receptionist offered us sandwiches which was much appreciated. We were then taken to our sea front bungalow in... More

Beautiful location, sea is lovely. Be prepared for loud music every night until at least 12am. Noisy neighbours. Beds were very hard. Lousy wifi. Expensive local drinks. Mediocre spa. Wake up call at 3am which I did not ask for, no apology. Sewage smell outside restaurant. Music throughout the day. Basic room, not 4*. Fitness centre is a joke. Good... More

Wonderful Hotel. The food was excellent - you could have anything from a pizza to a steak or local delicacies like rabbit or mousaka and it was very varied from night to night.

Great accommodation, very clean rooms, amazing staff and great food(we had all inclusive tickets) and entertainment at the pool. The only thing we did not like was the evening entertainment at the theatre, we considered it inappropriate for children of ages under 18 and most families had young children participating. Also, we expected something authentic, such as Greek music and... More

While all reviews are subjective this is our own personal experience based on what we were expecting. First, the good points - staff were attentive and friendly and did whatever they could (taking into account the limitations of the actual infrastructure and offerings). This is by no means a 4* hotel. We had specifically booked this hotel as we had... More

Stayed for two weeks in bungalow 2318. Returned four days ago. This was our first holiday to Crete. Staying at this Iberostar Hotel it did not disappoint. Thank you to Amaria and all the bar and restaurant staff who were very helpful and made us feel welcome, We would definitely return for another stay.
