“A Great Holiday”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We returned from the Nana. Beach a week ago and had a fantastic holiday in a beautiful hotel with brilliant staff.We e mailed the hotel in advance about a refurbished room and we were pleasantly surprised when we were given a two bed roomed apartment instead of a garden room on arrival.The hotel is in a good location approximately 20 minutes walk to Stalis and 40 minutes to Hersonnisis in the other direction.We also went up to the three villages above the resort which you can walk to but most people get a taxi up which costs around 7 euros but there not to be missed with numerous bars and tavernas and a feel of the real Greece.The food does get a bit repetitive after 2 weeks and we chose to go out a couple of times to Stalis and I would recommend Maria's Golden Beach were we went to with friends that were staying in another hotel nearby.The drinks were plentiful with plenty of bars and excellent bar staff.while we were there we played tennis pool ping pong and went on the pedalos and canoes and they were all included in the all inclusive package .We spent most of our days round the veranda pool were we looked after by Manolis who was always ready to serve you with drinks food and towels and is a real credit to this hotel.All in all a superb hotel in beautiful grounds the only fault is you would think a 5 star hotel would have free wi fi .

Room Tip: E mail in advance

We spent the last week of April at this all-inclusive resort with 4 boys under the age of10 and had a wonderful time. It was the very beginning of the season so only about a third of the hotel was occupied which was pure bliss. Lovely resort designed like a little Greek village with its white-washed streets and even its little chapel. Our rooms were in the more recent part of the resort, right in front of the sea and were very spacious, beautifully furnished and very clean. 6 swimming pools (one is a sea water pool). Good variety of restaurants in addition to the main buffet which offers plenty of food and a good selection of local dishes. I thoroughly recommend it!

We visited Nana Beach hotel on June 2014 for 4 days.
We came with 3 kids and had a great time; there is a very nice beach, pools (include special kids pool), several restaurants, many sports activities like tennis, Ping-Pong, soccer, water polo and more.
This is a perfect place for vacation that combined kids’ activities, facility vacation and sports activities.
Highly recommended especially during July and August (it can be cold during the spring).

We decided to stay here after being impressed when passing by it on previous visits to the area and reading the consistenly good reviews. The most sriking aspect of the hotel is how spotlessly clean it is kept both inside and out. In the vast grounds there are lots of individually styled pools to experience, so you can easily find one that suits you, and they all have ample sunbeds most of which are new and very comfortable. There are also sunbeds on the beach and piers. The quality and range of food and drinks available were excellent. The staff were really friendly and helpful and always looked happy. The entertainment team were very good, except that all daytime pool activies/games seemed to be focused on the main pool. In my opinion, it would be better if they could arrange some events at the other large pools. Apart from this minor point, we had a brilliant holiday and look forward to going back there.

Thank you also very much for your suggestion. On our other pools we don't have much possibilities for entertainment activities and from our experience the guests who are choosing these pools, usually rather want to relax - this is why the entertainment mainly takes place at the main pool.

It was a big pleasure to welcome you and we hope to see you again, whenever you decide to come back to Crete!

Just back from our second trip to this hotel. This is the only hotel we have ever been to twice and we were not disappointed. The setting is superb and very peaceful and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Rooms are well furnished and comfortable but some could do with blinds to stop people seeing in. Food choice is very good with three specialist restaurants at no extra cost although main restaurant could do with a better choice of fresh fruit and another chef on the egg station at breakfast. Minor niggles no free wifi and charge for safe. Why not just put a couple of extra euros on the price to start with?

Yassou Nana! :o)

I have to start by saying I never get around to going online and writing reviews.... but for Nana Beach I just had to! We have just got back from a wonderful 11 night holiday there. We're a family of 4 with two boys aged 7 and 4 and we all had our best family holiday yet. Nana Beach is relaxed, friendly, beautiful and fun. The place was spotlessly clean, a huge range of delicious foods and incredibly friendly staff. We really felt like part of their family while we were there. For the children there is a lovely blue flag beach protected by a beautiful old harbour wall, more swimming pools than they state in the brochure, the large children's play pool was our favourite especially as it had thoughtfully been partially covered by shading material. There are a couple of good play areas one of which is again undercover so you don't need to worry about them getting too much of the midday sun. And then of course there is the kids club/entertainment team who are just wonderful, you couldn't wish to meet a more friendly, funny, kind, welcoming bunch of people. And it wasn't all about the kids there are plenty of quiet areas for those without children, lots of choices of bar and restaurant, most of which have stunning views of the coast or pools. The layout of the hotel is great too, makes you feel like you are in a little Greek village with beautiful bougainvillea lined lanes, a tiny chapel, a shop, little village squares and traditional looking low rise accommodation. Brilliantly thought out and a perfect mix of everything. You will have an amazing time.

Returned 3 days ago from the Nana Beach. What a lovely place with fantastic staff. It really seems virtually faultless. We met numerous returners - special mention to Roger and Babs, Terry and Margaret and Ralf and Sam (and Dave and Helen) - all of whom had been there several times previously. The food is plentiful and good quality. The location is good, an hour from the airport, and we were able to venture out easily. Excellent for young families, seems very safe and the staff welcome children. Plenty of space, so if you want peace and quiet you can find it. A good safe beach with plenty of sports if you are that way inclined. We had a garden view room, cleaned daily, and we couldn't complain about anything. Now to the staff - what a great bunch: the main dining area is led by the sparkling Ritsa, the Panorama Bar is run by Ioannis and George and helped by a Katy Perry lookalike and the pool we spent most time at has a bar area for snacks, drinks and towels and is run by Magic Manolis. They work long and hard, most work 7 days a week, so they deserve a mention. Will we return? You bet!

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be good.
