“Friendly staff, great location,very good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

I stayed here for 2 weeks in May with my parents (both in their 70s). I would recommend this hotel. My parents stayed in a superior room which was excellent and I would strongly advise if you are a couple to pay the extra and book this type of room. I stayed in the older part of the hotel which was fine as single accommodation. One word of warning if you are in the older
part there are no handles on the outside doors to the balcony. I along with many others locked myself out! The food is buffet style with show cooking every day and there was a good selection of high quality food. There was in house entertainment 3 nights a week which was very good.
The two things that I would highlight are the staff who were incredibly friendly to everybody and the location which is just off the main promenade. This meant the hotel was both central and quiet. I'd definitely stay in this hotel again and I would recommend it to singles, couples (young and old), families (facilities for children) and older people. I would not recommend it for stag and hen type parties. While there visit the Aquarium it's well worth doing.

Room Tip: Couples are best to book the superior room

Stayed here for 2 weeks in superior room which was absolutely beautiful. This Hotel is first class and ALL of the Staff are just fantastic so helpfull and friendly. Food was good with plenty to choose from. The whole place is absolutely immaculate and everything you need has been thought out for you. Being a family run Hotel makes a big difference in my opinion. Highly recommend this hotel. The spa is excellent and not expensive at all. Wish all Hotels were like this one. Thanks to family and Staff for excellent stay.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are the best.

Just returned from a 2 week stay at this fantastic hotel.From check in to departure we were impressed with everything this hotel has to offer. We stayed in a superior room which was very comfortable and nicely decorated.Staff were friendly and very efficient, food was goid with plenty if choice.The family who own the hotel make their own wine which i had with dinner every evening and was of a very good quality.I would highly reccomend this hotel and will be returning in the future.

Professional and friendly staff in all facilities (spa, rooms), an absolute paradise indeed. Makes you relax truly and gives you all the energy you need. I recommend it for the ultimate vacation. Also, the food was very carefuly cooked with mediterranean recipies, which gives you an exotic and balanced essence of taste. Stuff is always beside you in order to help you and make your stay an unforgetable one. I think that it is the one and only holiday destination for those who desire to have the best!

I just returned from a week in Albatros with my husband. When we first arrived, we were greeted by the very friendly staff. We got our room right away and had a chance to rest before going to dinner. The room was nice, just like the photos we had seen for the standard rooms. It wasn't very big but we knew that from the discription and actually got more than we expected for the amount of money we had paid. The aircondition was working very well and we had no problem with the heat wave and the fridge in the room was very helpful too. The dinner was also good and a chef prepared something different every night at the outside kitchen. Everyone was very helpful. Next year, we'll go back for sure and I would also like to try the spa.

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at this hotel
We had checked it out through Trip advisor and were not disappointed .We booked a superior room and were given a lovely bright modern ;spacious room overlooking one of the 2 pools this included the free use of a small fridge and room safety box.
We were there on a half board basis The food was exceptionally good ( especially for me being vegetarian ) they managed to cater for all the many nationlalities that were there but still were able to keep an authentic Greek element to it all ;the hotel itself was spotless in EVERY area even the sunbeds were scrubbed every morning i have never see such an :"army" of cleaners working so hard.
The hotel is a family run business and their greatest asset is their staff I always find the Greek people wonderful in themselves. more so in this hotel each one could not do enough for you
These have been the most friendly and helpful that we have experienced in any of our many holidays destinations .i dont usually highlight any particular staff members but on this occasion I must mention Apolosis and Eleni in the restaurant for their care and attention
Hersonissis resort itself was much busier that I had anticipated ;however the peace and tranquillity of this wonderful Albatros hotel and its Spa ( a must to use) on the outskirts of the resort offers a wonderful Sanctuary in the Cretian sunshine. We plan to rteturn in the future

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a superior room in the new buildings

Our son is only 3 years old and it was our first trip with him . We were worried about the safety and the food about all our fears were vanished after the second day of our stay. The staff was helpfull, they privided us with a brand new stroller and baby bed , the high chairs in the restaurant were very clean and there was always a choice for the little one to eat. Plenty of fruits and different choices of traditional greek food. The beach in front of the hotel is clean and sandy .The pools were cleaned daily and the water was crystal clear . There is a small palygroud and a kid s pool .The night shows on Tuesdays and Fridays were very proffetionals and our son enjoyed the music .Overall it was an excellent trip to Crete .
