We stayed at this hotel for one week at the beginning of Sept. It is a large ‘village’ style complex of 2 story apartments around beautiful, well cared for gardens. It is located close to the sea and a 20 minute walk from Heronissos town; however, it can be quite a trek back up the hill so perhaps consider a taxi for the return journey (approx. 7 euros). The rooms are large but a little dated, as is the rest of the hotel. The food is rather standard buffet fare with an option to dine (ONCE ONLY) at two other on site restaurants, where at least you get your food served! (This makes a nice change from trying to tiptoe through the pointy elbowed Eastern Europeans!) There are plenty of sunbeds around the various pools but be warned they tend to get covered in beach towels relatively early & most remain unused until much later in the day. All in all, we enjoyed our week relaxing in the sun. The staff were always welcoming and pleasant, the sun shone and the bar staff make a mean Black Russian!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The mythical realm of King Minos, blessed by the gods of the sun and the sea, is today as proud as a fortress and as welcoming as an embrace. It is also home to a sumptuous palace that makes an ideal destination for any family holiday. At the Knossos Royal Village, time moves at a different pace: in elegant and comfortable rooms with incomparable views, in the azure sea and crystal-clear pools, at superb sports facilities and matchless restaurants, the pleasure and relaxation never end. ... more less
