We just visited Sunwing in Makrigialos for the 12th time and as you understand we truly love the place. The beaches are fantastic in this part of Crete and the hotel is really nice. We have stayed in all the different buildings, Afrodite is the favorite, and have no complaints what so ever. The pool area is huge with something...

We stayed at the Ocean Beach Club in Makrigialos, Crete. It offers beautiful ocean views, both from poolside/restaurant and our 2 bedroom mini suite facing the Libyan Sea. The hotel is a great alternative to the standard Sunwing hotel, with far more calm and relaxed athmosphere as well as better design. You still have access to the other hotel but...

Our little family are having a great time at O.C.B Hotel. We spent a little extra to get the privat pool, which is really really worth it. Imaging waking up and going straight in the warm pool :) Always smiling and friendly staff makes it even better. The food is great and the wi-fi streams Netflix in our room, without...

Stayed a week with all inclusive. The room was a single room, quite big with a kitchenette and a small bathroom. The swimmingpools are good for children and there are a lot of other activities. The food at the hotel was a bit boring, but excellent quality and fresh vegetables. The staff are very kind and serviceminded.

The resort is great, no question about that. Unfortunately a stay has become too expensive, when you have children between the ages of 12 to 15(17). It is sad to note the cut off limit for children is 12 years at this resort, instead of normal travel industry limit of 15 or 17 years. If you are a family of...

We stayed one week i Ocean Beach Club at Sunwing Resort on south Crete. The hotel is very well managed with excellent facilities and friendly staff. Recommend to book one apartment with access to privat pool. Nice entertainment every night and very good food at the OCB-restaurant.

Visited with the family back then. They had recently renovated the rooms6,so they were decent, facilities were not so good, but given that they were the only ones offered in town,I guess not much of a choice there. I would go only if I'd get a really good deal, not otherwise
