“Great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2011

We needed a relaxing holiday. We got moer than we expected. We booked this hotel with a last minute deal of Neckerman. Neckerman gave this hotel 3.5 stars which I think it's fair. We paid EUR 1,080 for two of us during 3-10 Sep. This price included Transavia flights, transfer to/from the hotel and 7 nights with all inclusive. On the same day we checked the price of Transavia flight to Crete on the same day was EUR 495 for each !! So we almost got the hotel for free. The first room we got, the toilet just kept flushing. When we told the reception, she changed the room for us right away. The room is simple and very clean. It is old but everything works. My room has a fresh paint. They tried to keep the room in good condition at their best ability. I can see from different bathroom tiles. We got the room in the main building, next to the Star beach. When we closed the doors we could not hear the music from Star beach.There was only one night (Monday night) that they had music until 11:30 pm. But we arrived the room just a few minutes before they stopped. We were in the room only in the night because we were busy enjoyed doing stuff outside. There were trees between us and Star beach. We could not see them and they could not see us.The pillows were really thin. The matras is hard. The foods were very good. There were mainly Crete local foods which we like very much. We are not someone who went to Greece and expected Chinese or Indian foods. There were fish, mixed seafood, lamb, beef, pork and chicken, potato and rice cooked in different way everday. There were pasta with meat saus everyday. There are 4-5 kinds of starndard deserts like chocolate mouse. castard, panna cotta, ice cream, etc everyday. At least 1 or 2 local Cretan deserts. There was the same Greece salad everyday. The feta cheese is really tasty. I went sight seeing one day and had to buy my own lunch. I paid about EUR 40 for two for a fragtion of the lunch I got from the hotel, The drinks were local brands as indicated in the brochure. I found nothing wrong with that. I like to try local things. They also provided Belgium beers. But I preferred local one. The bars were open till 11 pm. The cake served at 4 pm was not good. The hotel is direct in front of the sea. One of the best location of the whole village. The beach is in front of the hotel. In front of the hotel is a bit rocky but on the right side is a sand beach. If you have teen or yong children, they will love it as it 's next to the Star beach. There 2 big pools in front of the sea. We did not check the 3rd one because we found the two in front of the beach are great. There are shops, restuarants and bars in front of the hotels and all the way to the pier which is the downtown. Instead of walking from the front of the hotel, you may want to try to walk a long the beach to the pier. There are many cozy bars along the way. The staff were veyr polite. There are no waiters or waitress as all self service besdie the pool bar where ou have to pay if you want cocktails. The cocktails in the hotel is not so good. Yo better try the bars outside. I tried different bars everyday. We did not meet any rude German. There are many Russians. Not one of them were rude. Most of them were very good looking. They really made a lot of efforts to look good at dinner time. Not just this hotel but in the downtown too. You will found many signs in Russian Conclusion. This is a good hotel. We were happy with what we got. I think the bad reviews are not fair. I don't understand what did people who gave bad reviews expected from their money.

My girlfriend and I stayed for a week at the resort in August 2011, with an all inclusive package deal. The resort was on the whole, excellent and and good value for money. It is located at the eastern end of town, adjacent to the star beach resort which offers slides, watersports, a beach, bars and plenty for kids too. The main clubbing street is the other end of town around 30 minutes walk.

The hotel rooms are pretty basic but ours did have a fridge, tv and air con. I recommend bringing/buying your own bedsheet as for a double bed, they just lay two singles. The cleaner wasn't very good.

The hotel facilities are great. Three really good swimming pools, a small beach literally next to it, 2 bars with beer, wine, raki and ouzo all on tap. The food is simple, plentiful and on the whole very tasty Greek dishes. The gym is actually a small weights room with no CV machines.

There is also a fair sized supermarket about 200m from the entrance where you can get hold of essentials.

In summary, it is really good resort, well priced in an excellent location with decent facilities. I would recommend it for couples and families.

Room Tip: When booking, I would specify what you don't want eg not a basement room, or one next to gym.

I've been to Eri Beach with my wife and 2 sons. We went with the plane from Holland to Crete. On the airport a bus was waiting for us to bring us to our hotel. Eri Beach Hotel was one of the last. First there were some houses in Hersonissas that were up the hills. Far away from the center. Then we went to Eri Beach Hotel Club and everyone was jealous when we got out the bus. When we arrived at 11am we were given the keys of our hotel by the reception. When we entered our room it was clean and the bathroom looked pretty big there was a shower and bath. After reading some of the reviews here we didnt expect it would be so clean. The cleaners did their job pretty well they come to clean your room every day around 2 pm. If you didnt want to shower there you could also go down at the luggagestorageroom. The first morning we went to take a look at the pools. Afterall we actually only stayed on the left one because there was the most people. The minibar near the pool with free drinks was awfull. The beer was drinkable but not very tasty. My sons tried to drink Fini Cola. But they said it was awfull. So we bought our own drinks. The food in the restaurant wasn't very taste but it was various so you could always find something you liked. It was almost the same every day but there was a lot of choice which could get you trough the week. We had no trouble we loud music at night at all, mostly in the morning but that's just because we like to sleep. The hotel was at a nice place 3 minutes walk to the center. The restaurants around the hotel were okay. My wife and my sons liked the No Name bar. We went there almost every day for a drink. Its a family restaurant with very nice people and good service and it's a lovely place. The negative things about the hotel are that the reception is very lazy. We wanted to go to Agios Nikolaus with the bus (lovely place I'd defenitly recommed it) so we wanted to ask at the reception what time the buses go and he was like: "Do I have to look that up, really..? While he was just sitting in his chair. After a while of looking up he said: "They usually go..." Another negative thing is that my son is 16 and he was inbetween the teenagers and the young kids there. So there was nothing really to do for him around, but I went to bars with him so he had it good after all. I am not sure if I could stand 2 weeks there but 1 week is nice and we had a great holiday.

We stayed at this hotel for 10 days,from 13.6.2011. to 23.6.2011.,and we had a great time.We are a familly with a 13 year old son.I am going to write in parts so you can find what you are looking for easier.

SERVICE

Poeple here are great and very friendly.All of the people working in hotel are great.people in restaurant are very lovely and they clean all the time so you always have free tables.The women that work as room service(cleaners)are great too.They will clean your room every day.

SLEEP QUALITY

Sleep quality is not the best.Since you have a Star beach Hotel right about 100m from Eri Beach,you will find it a bit harder to sleep.They have beach party almost every day with DJ's and a lot of music,so it is a litle bit harder to sleep.If you are a bit younger you will even go to Star Beach and be at a Beach Party,since it is open for everyone.If you are not so young,or just don't like to party all night,you will be able to sleep while watching TV in your room :)

CLEANLINESS

Rooms are clen,They are cleaned every day,just like all other facilities in the hotel.The restaurant is cleaned before and after every meal,and also,if something is spilled or broken during the meal,it is cleaned right away!Around the pool and on the bars,it is also very clean.

RESTAURANT

You will have 3 great meals in the restaurant of the hotel.
Breakfast is from 7:00 to 10:00.You will get boiled egs,scrambled egs,sausages,mustard,ketchup,sour cream,small hot dogs,a few kinds of bread,4-5 kinds of cereal,tea,cofee,hot milk,sprite,coke,fanta,mineral water,water,orange juice,lemon juice,fresh orange juice(paid ekstra for 2€),light cola,potatos,beans,salads...
Lunch is from 12:30 to 14:00.Food in lunch is very different every day.Common things for lunch are that you have 1-2 kinds of fish,every day is different,3-4 kinds of meat(chicken,turkey,beef,pork,lamb...),a lot of pasta,almost 5-6 kinds with different sauce.There are many salads(up to 10 kinds)for lunch.The drinks are same like in the morning.
Dinner is from 18:30 to 21:00.From food and drinks you will get everything you get in lunch,only different kind and different cooked,so you will never get boored of food,since there is always something new and differend,exscitint and exotic!!!
During all meals you have desert(cakes,pudings,creams,fruits,ice creams...)

ROOM SERVICE

It is also very nice.You will get your room cleaned every day by the time of lunch and you will get new,clean towels.Your bed will be made and sometimes the sheets will be changed.Your room is pretty big.We had a room with bathroom(everything you need is in it),big bed(for 2),and one small bed for one person.Also you get TV,air condition,table,some shelves and a balcony with table and chairs.

SPA

This hotel doesn't have a spa.If you want this you will have to go to Star Beach or some other place.

FACILITIES

Hotel has many rooms,it is pretty big.All rooms are devided in 12 buildings.There are different kinds of rooms,depending on price and kind you paid.I suggest you take one with sea view.The hotel also has a play room-gym.Here you have table-tennis and all machines for workouts.There are 3 pools and 2 pools for children.2 pools are with sea water and one is with regular water.They are all big and pretty great.Also there is a theatar which works in the season and probably has some shows every night.While we were here it didn't work.Only one night we had a Greek night were we all danced with profesional dancers some Greek and Cretan dances.There is also animation office where you can get balls for all sports,rackets for tennis and table-tenis etc.Everything is given to you for 10€ deposit,which you get back when you return everything like you took.We used to play tennis and you can keep the equipment for 1 day and than return it and take it again if you want.There are 3 terains for tennis and all are great.But,I suggest bringing your own rackets since these are a bit old,but if you are playing just for fun you can use these too.You also have lobby bar,tropical bar and beach bar.Lobby bar is open from 18:00 to 23:00.There is served all kinds of juices and alcoholic drinks(beer,red,white wine,brandy,ouzo,raki,same as in restaurant),just like cofee,tea,milk...At tropical bar it is the same,just that it works from 10:00 to 22:00.The beach bar is different.It doesn't have free drinks,All are payable,but they are foreign drinks,like vodka,foreign beers(heineken etc.) and others.
You also have a mini market where you can buy some accesories.
Beach is nice,with small rocks.If you like sand beach,you go to Star Beach Hotel,which is about 100m from Eri Beach.You can use their water sports(chargable),and their sea(free) and pools(free).
The buildings that are closer to Star beach are gonna get you less good sleep quality,so you can tell at your check in that ou want to go to some other building,like Klio or Polymnia or Olimpya,that are closer to road.They are more quiet.
In front of hotel you have rent-a-car which I suggest you take to go around Knossos and Zeus cave and some other things on Creta.
Internet connection is sometimes available and sometimes not,so you will have a har time getting it but you will get it every now and than.You can also go to some bar/restaurant and get Wi-Fi if you eat/drink something.

We had a great time here and would love to come sometime again!!!

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view if possible.

The hotel was next to the sea. Beach was beachrocked, but there was a beautyfull small beach with small rocks.
The room, the bathroom and the toilet were clean, but toilet bowl was broken. We were on all inclusive.
There was a wind range of food, majority was tasty, but for example gyros was bad. In the village restaurants offered much better food.
One problem at the pool bar was a bad smell.
The hotel was situated from city center 30 min on foot. Staff was very kind but they did not solve the toilet issue.
