Very friendly and helpful staff Good food as far as our orders, with fast delivery when room service was used Very good location, and yes, there is a road between the hotel and the beach, but there is also a tunnel under the road directly from the hotel reception parking The pools are nice, although the water was surprisingly colder...

We are family of three and we spent almost two weeks in this hotel at the end of August, on half board basis. We chosen this hotel based on customer reviewers. It was excellent value for money. First of all many comments suggested that this is a good 4 star hotel rather than 5 star, as advertised, and we could...

This is a great hotel, 5 star apart from the food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also concerns re over booking in hotel. This did not apply to our party, but to two other groups during our stay. Phone and make sure there is no problem with accommodation.

We could not ask for more from the room and facilities and the staff who guided us throughout our 10 days trip.The restaurant through is quite basic for a five star hotel with repetetive choices and poor service.Kiki and the rest of the team are the exception of the rule along with Ioanna and Eleni from reception.Thank you all :)))

We stayed 4 nights in the Cretan Dream Royal. It is a big and beautiful resort hotel overlooking the sea. The architecture is great. The infinity pool is amazing. Our room was huge with a nice balcony over the pool. The location is very convenient : the beach is across the street, and the beautiful old city of Hania is...

The staff of this hotel is sooo helpful and so nice that they make you forget the poor breakfast. Always willing to help, friendly and honest. The hotel is really clean if you especially have children. If you do not have high expectations, for example there is no conditioner in the bathroom, then this hotel is really good. Its only...
