We're quite late in posting this review as our visit to the Grand Holiday Resort was in May 2012, but we loved the place and still wanted to post. We stayed here on an RCI exchange, and had read terrific reviews on Trip Advisor. From the first warm welcome from Ana, everything about the Holiday met or exceeded our expectations. This property is not a resort in the sense that the only facility is a pool. Instead, it consists of fabulous apartment-like accommodations built on a hillside with balconies (really full porches) with spectacular panoramic views of the Mediterranean. The accommodations were spotless, very well decorated with kind of a southwestern US motif, and extremely spacious. We had a 1 bedroom, LR, and full-outfitted kitchen. The town of Chersonisos is adorable with some excellent restaurants, and is about 20 minutes by thoroughfare from the Herakleon airport. It's very well situated for exploring the island cities and sites, although it's a long drive to the far northern side of Crete, and we didn't venture that far. Don't miss the aquarium in Chersonisos; it's remarkable.
