This was our first trip to Crete and this resort lived up to its billing. First of all, the staff must be complimented, they were all very friendly and efficient. The resort is beautiful, we had a Seaview bungalow which was just lovely - very spacious and peaceful. The food quality was generally good and the variety was incredible. If you go, book very early each day for the a la carte restaurants in order not to miss out. The organic Cretan and Cretan mezze were for us the best. Some of the local cuisine was sensational, worth trying. We didn' t really bother with the town, which was a bit run down. Our time away from the resort was spent exploring, to get a feel for the island. As a base, this resort is well positioned.

Returned after a week of total relaxation at this hotel . We stayed in two standard bungalows just by the pathos restaurant. All though it was mid august here was absolutely no noise disturbance. The staff couldn't be more pleasant and helpful.

The rooms were spacious, clean and quaint. Air conditioned with a fridge and tv. The restaurants were all fantastic and plenty of choice. How anyone could possibly moan about the choice and quality is beyond me and I always stay 5*.

Hersonassis it's self is a bit of a dump but the hotel is far enough away and the beach and grounds are stunning.

I would definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: If you want quiet choose a bungalow near one of the smaller pools

Crete is a really nice place to spend holidays. Specially if you take a hotel like we did. We had a beautiful suite with a sea view. It was clean and had nice decoration. Food was tasty, we liked beach bar and enjoyed swimming in the warm sea. Outside hotel you can enjoy walking or visiting many restaurants. We took renta car for 2 days and visited some interesting places like Knosos, palm beach, pottery village Margeritas and had a lot of fun.

Room Tip: Take a suite with sea view

Very big place, beautiful, tasty food (except of the main dining room they have 4 restaurants included). The rooms are not fancy but we didn't care bcs we were in it only for sleep. 2 water slides for children that our 4 years old child really enjoyed. The staff is very nice and helpful. We have nothing bad to say about the place, worth the price.

Room Tip: they have golf cars that can take you to far places in the resort for free

Just came back from a family vacation in Creta Maris (10 people, ages 2 to 75) - and we all had a wonderful time!
Before I complement the resort, one suggestion for improvement, which I hope someone from the hotel will read and take into consideration: How is it possible that in a hotel that offers so many pools and a big beach there is no place to hang wet swimsuits in the rooms? The result is that each guest improvise a solution, and usually hangs it on chairs outside... Creta Maris - you can do better!

In any other aspect - I have only good things to say
* The resort is very clean (rooms and public areas), rooms (and we had 3 different ones) were comfortable and well planned. The pools are all around the hotel, so there is always one not far from your room - but the beach might quite far, so one might one to check it before booking.
* Although the pools and the beach were packed with people - it was quiet and you could find a free bed
* Food - as others have already said - is not really good or tasty, but in all meals there was a big variety of offers, they were never short of anything and there was never a big line. i.e., you don't go to Creta Maris for the food, but you don't stay hungry.
* We tried 3 of the restaurants - italian, organic and greek - and they were much nicer then the big "basic" restaurant. Please note that it is necessary to book a place as early as possible (must say - I think many guests reserve a place and just don't show up - because it is free anyhow, so the restaurants are fully booked, but are not full at all, which is a pity because other guests could enjoy the place!).
* The reception people were always eager to help and very nice!

So, if you're planning to go there - Have fun!
