Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went there as family with 2 boys and it was an absolutely brilliant stay! From the time we arrived, we were well looked after. We went for all inclusive package and the cleaning service, the food, the drinks were all outstanding. They have the most amazing entertainment team, special thanks to Lily, Georgia, Fabio and Ismail. They had different events each night which my kids loved and looked forward to, and they also have the best daily kids club activities. We would definitely recommend this place to others.

My family visited Kiani during the Easter holidays an April and it did not disappoint! We ranged from ages 6-68 and we were all thoroughly impressed. Clean, friendly staff, amazing food which was a wide variety of different food and catered for all allergens. Snacks were great and there was always someone making crepes from 11am until dinner time. Also a wide variety of sandwiches, cakes, snacks and fruit available from 11am at the fridges in the bar areas. Hot drinks, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages available whenever you want and you can self serve. Entertainment was great and lots of activities offered through the day. Animators Ismael and Fabio were very friendly and helpful and the kids loved them! You can hire a car from the hotel and there are lots of nice places to see nearby. Sandy and pebbly beach which was lovely and clean by the hotel and lots of swimming pools. Overall an amazing holiday. Thank you so much Kiani! We will definitely be returning!

We loved this hotel and will definitely be returning next year. I have never been so close to the beach and sea whilst relaxing by a hotel pool! Clean, food fresh, entertainment good and last but by no means least the staff… wow! We have never come across such friendly, welcoming and kind staff at a hotel! Evagelia and Elektra were warm and wonderful and felt like friends! Russell in the restaurant was an extremely good host and great fun. Animation team were super!

The hotel was in a great location with beautiful views of the mountains and the sea. The beach was very accessible with sand and pebbles. The rooms were spacious well furnished with plenty of storage and comfy beds and pillows, 2 balconies, 2 bathrooms and a small kitchen area. The staff was friendly and super hepful, all areas were clean and tidy. All inclusive offer was plentiful with choices for the whole family. Great selection of food and snacks for my fussy daughter as well as traditional Cretan dining experience. Indoor and outdoor pools were also available as well as a gym and spa. The tour desk lady helped us select and organise day trips to Knossos, Heraklion, Aptera and Chania.

We are just leaving what has been a brilliant Easter holiday break. As a family of 5 we chose to stay in the maisonette apartment - 2 adults, a 10 year old and two 5 year old. The room has a large double bed and comfy single downstairs and two singles upstairs. The room had ample space for all our clothes and suitcases, with fridge and coffee making facilities. We opted for restricted sea view but we had a fantastic view set back from the main pool so lovely and quiet but could still see and hear the waves. Cleaners did a great job at keeping the room nice and clean each day. Food was brilliant and catered for all of us - two restaurants at North and south (we were well placed between both) both had same menu but we found the south catered more for children and families (plastic plates option, larger family tables, more space). Fresh salad was my favourite (feta and olives!). All inclusive food available at the beach bars during the day (amazing fresh crepes at North bar and sandwiches, fruit and cakes). Big big shout out to the entertainers who were absolutely brilliant all day long especially Ismael who was brilliant with my son. Eldest loved the range of activities on each day (footy, volleyball, fitness, waterpolo, boules, etc) and the app helped to see what was on and when. Younger two loved the kids club (2 sessions per day), bouncy castle and the mini disco each night. Activities also on for adults too which were great to get involved in. They had some excellent entertainment on each night including circus act (kids fave), bingo, Greek dancing, quiz, magician). Pool bars at North and South serving all inclusive cocktails - option to buy premium cocktails or we opted for all inclusive plus and made the most of the free premium cocktails and discounts in the spa and mini market (well stocked). Weather ranged from 18 to 25 degrees. We had one overcast day where you couldn't swim in the sea (gorgeous private beach area) but generally the weather was hot for sunbathing Take a coat or jumper for at night it gets a little chilly. Ample pools one at North and two at south (kids slide pool and big pool). All lovely, cool and clean.

We just returned from a 7 nights stay at Kiani and our experience is totally fantastic! This was right from check in to leaving in the resort! I hardly write reviews but this was really one to shout about! We were in the maisonettes which was on the other side of the main building where you have the reception. The lower room was spacious with lots of storage, the loft room was okay too and sizeable for kids. The rooms were cleaned regularly by friendly cleaning staff who were always happy to replenish the toiletries. We used the restaurant on our side of the road and the buffet food was fantastic! (it is the same menu on both sides of the road) A wide variety of options which we didn't get bored with for the length of our stay. Even on the occasions where we got there like 5mins to the end of lunch or dinner, we still had a good selection to pick from and the chef doing the live cooking at the grill was always so nice with a delicious selection everyday from pancakes to grilled meat and gyros. All the restaurant staff and manager (Niko) were absolutely brilliant. We also ordered a cake for my son's birthday which Niko presented nicely to him. All were always welcoming you with a smile and quite helpful. The crepe available from the pool bar (reception side) at other times was absolute delicious (I had the ham and cheese filling and the boys had the chocolate and banana filling) but there was always a long queue as it was only one person making it. Worth the wait but I suggest they have an additional chef to help out or have another station at the other pool bar area. We did not upgrade to the all-inclusive plus package as the standard inclusive package was sufficient for us. All the staff we came across were really helpful, friendly and always willing to say hello even as you walked past them on the premises. A special mention to June, Elektra and Evagelia at reception too. We also found the information on activities and blogs on the website quite useful before we got there which made it easier for us to plan our activities. We will definitely go back.

Great location for a family with all you need at the complex. The staff are all very friendly and the entertainment staff were amazing with the kids. The kitchen staff were great and lovely food. It’s got its own private beach making the views incredible. There’s not a lot around there but they do have buses in to chania which has a lovely old town with great stalls. I also highly recommend the 4x4 jeep adventure which takes all over the island. You won’t be disappointed.

Families will love all the fun at Kiani Beach Resort! This 5-star, all-inclusive hotel has endless activities to keep the kids entertained. The 2 pools at the hotel are huge and our kids enjoyed the poolside entertainment. Having visited in early April at the beginning of the season it was amazing to see snow on the top of the mountains whilst sunbathing in 27 degree heat! The views here are beautiful and I'd recommend coming in April for an Easter getaway. The beach and pool areas have plenty of comfy sunbeds, which I appreciated, especially with my bad back. There are two sides to the hotel separated by a small quiet road so the resort is quite large with plenty to do. They also have a well-stocked mini market with lots of fun swim aids for kids so you don't need to bring any with you. The all-inclusive is ideal for the kids. The buffet offers a wide variety of delicious food that caters to everyone's tastes. I must say, the meals were always tasty and the kids loved being able to serve themselves. There are also drinks on tap including soft drinks, wine, and beer. The children's waterpark area is exceptionally well-designed for young ones, much to the delight of my boys who thoroughly enjoyed it. Additionally, at 5 pm, there are bouncy castles set up for the kids to enjoy before dinner. My youngest ( and my husband who still thinks he's a child) had great fun playing football on the grass area. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, always going above and beyond to assist us when we needed help. The entertainment team was fantastic and although I didn't take part in the water aerobics it did look fun. I strongly recommend arranging an excursion through the Let'sCrete excursion office at the hotel. Our journey to Elafonissi Beach was truly exceptional and an experience not to be overlooked. You can even get a breakfast basket made up to take on the excursion as pick-up is before breakfast. Kiani Beach is a fantastic hotel for families and we will most definitely be back soon!

I felt instant comfort as I entered the lounge. Hotel room was tidy an clean, nice pool and a small but atmospheric beach which I actually prefer. I also really liked the enthuasiastic power from the local entertainment team, always smiling, friendly in a natural way and never ever have I thought it was all for moneys sake. Greetings to Lilli at this point, very nice to meet you.
