After a lovely holiday in another part of Crete this year we decided to come again and this time try a different resort!! This adult only hotel seemed a good option, but then there is no stopping anyone from the Creta star using the sun beds or lounge facilities. As usual certain people were allowed to reserve sun beds all...

I was so excited about arriving to crete for my first time, and having heard great reviews about this hotel, I thought it was going to be perfect for my first time experience. I'm so lucky I am only staying here 3 nights and moving onto another island as it was awful from the very first second. The receptionist was...

We booked Creta Star but got a transfer to Creta Royal. We enjoyed everything: the quiet garden with sunbeds, the pool, nice room, the quality of the meals (fresh orange juice at breakfast), the beach, very friendly staff. If you are looking for a relaxed holiday this is the place to be - no screaming kids, enough space around the...

We're back nearly 3 weeks from our second trip of the Summer to the little piece of heaven that is the Creta Royal. The staff of this hotel is what sets it apart from other hotels we have stayed at in Crete. The rooms are clean and functional and serve their purpose but it is the stunning location and excellent...

We have arrived at the Creta Royal yesterday, the 26th of August and have since then been amazed by the quality of the hotel and its amenities, the dedication of the staff and the peaceful atmosphere. The hotel is truly adult-only (with even a few noisy kids being asked to return to the Creta Star hotel next door which allows...

The majority of the Staff were pleasant and very hard working. Restaurant offered a wide variety of food. Location close to the beach was fantastic. The hotel residents were mainly French or Russian who often stared at young british couples. The rooms were extremely dated and the shower didn't work properly. There was no iron in the room and we...

Spent a delightful 11 days at the Creta Royal. This was our first venture in the Adult All Inclusive world and now we will probably never go back to a family holiday.
