Reviewed 3 November 2013

I stayed at the glaros with my husband from 15th oct for a week, we were supposed to stay at palatia village but they contacted us the week before to say they were closing a week early (not what you want to hear). We were given a few alternative hotels to choose from and I picked glaros, we couldn't fault anything at all,lovely hotel rooms very clean,staff all very friendly without exception, food very good and varied ,pool area very clean (a pity it didn't get much sun).to sum up all l can say is thanks palatia village for closing early and a massive thankyou to glaros hotel and all the staff for making our stay so memorable.

I always love it to come back to this hotel . The location , the people and the service are great , every time I come there it feels like holidays with my '' Greek family '' they don't treat you like guests but like you are there family and the value is really good for your money so make a visit ;)

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks (1 - 15 September. Room 621).
Our room (superior) was large enough to hold a party in, which we didn't!.
The room was perfect, overlooking the pool area and sea.
The meals were of a good quality and ample choice. The prices for drinks and meals at the hotel are competitive.
A special word of appreciation to the restaurant staff, who ran their legs off, catering for the guests.

The service and friendliness of all staff and management, was perfect. But, then that's where the Greek-/Cretan people come into a league of their own.

Two disappointing points were the swimming pool. Unfortunately the pool only relishes in the sun during the afternoon and has no seperate area for small children. And limited evening entertainment, which was a well organised Greek evening on Tuesdays. Where members of staff also participated in the dancing and did their best to get the public on their feet.

The Glaros is a very good quality hotel in a good location. Close to the shops and nightlife, but, without it being a problem for the hotels guests.
More suitable for couples, groups of friends, singles and business people.

Many thanks to all management and staff for making our stay a pleasant and memorable experience.

Well worth a return visit!

Room Tip: While not knowing the quality-/size of the other rooms. I would recommend the superior rooms.

Glaros has it all. Nice clean facilities, great tasty food, friendly service, sound of waves as it is just above the coast, fantastic view from a room is you have a sea view one.

Rooms: I recommend a superior room is available with a sea view, you wont regret it. I heard people complaining that standard rooms are rather small. I don't recommend a pool or street view rooms, it's nothing compared to the sea view. Room service is dayly, nothing spectacular, just ordinaly operations cleaners are doing, but all ladies are very friendly.

Food: Glaros has following: Main restaurant where you will be served buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner (depending on your package), Main Bar on second floor, Pool bar, and "Veranda" restaurant. I must say the food whether it's a buffet dining or "Veranda" restaurant is perfect, really tasty and you can tell they are using fresh products. You can see the chef every day at Main restaurant, he is a very funny and at the same time serious man, people say he is a perfectionist and can allow low quality food. You will see him making fried eggs and bacon in the mornings and doing some grill fish or meat and pasta in the evenings.

Beach: It seems Hersonissos doesn't have any nice sandy beaches, all are stony. So we didn't see a reason to search for beach somewhere as Glaros has it's own basically private beach. There's basically no walking distance, just take the stares down and you arrive.

On the beach there is a great guy Dmitri, who is responsible for the sun chairs and umbrellas, as well you can order food and drinks from Veranda restaurant thru him. Very friendly man who will help you in everything. You'll be charged 2,50 euros for the chair and 2,50 for the umbrella if you need it, for all the day.

It was my first time in Greece, previously I've been to spain like 100 times, and got used to Spanish really fast service. In Spain after you sit down in aproximately 30 seconds first beers will be on the table :). Greeks are bit different, they don't seem to rush too much. Don't expect very fast service, but nevertheless you'll be served good and in the end will be pleased, no doubt.

As everywhere in Crete most common languages servants speak are English ofcourse, Russian and German.

Internet: You will have to get a voucer with a code to use Wifi in all over hotel. They will charge you 3 euros per 24h. Which I believe is a disadvantage, as internet nowadays is like air we breathe, If they really need to charge clients for that I would guess 1 euro would be more apropriate. Sometime in the evening the internet traffic rises and you can't get a decent connection, this is common in most places though.

In conclusion we enjoyed our stay at Glaros and I would recommend it to anyone.

Great place for couples and friends. Hotel is in the city centre but on a quiet place just above small beach. That was really big advantages for us that there were not a lot of people and loudly children so we could really relax. Hotel has a very good staff everywhre but the men who takes care of sun beds and umbrellas on the beach and around the swimming pool was extremely nice and kind. He provided great service with smile and spread good cheer around!

Room Tip: Rooms at 6th floor with view to the West above the terrace were very quiet and comfortable.

We were at the Glaros hotel for 4 nights vacation at the beginning of august - the top of high season.
The hotel is located on the beach road of Harsonissos in a beautiful and quite part of it, with small nice beach, small swimming pool and nice taverns.
Although it was the top of high season and the hotel was fully booked, we did not fill it. The service was excellent, the hotel was very pleasant, the room was simple but clean and I specially want to thank Mrs. Patra from the reception that did any effort to make me satisfied.
We finished the vacation with the desire to come again.
