“Holidays in crete”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

A fantastic all-inclusive vacation experience.

Visited Fodele beach on August with my girlfriend during our summer vacations.
First let me say that the positive things mentioned in other reviews were all very accurate .
-Extraordinary service
-Excellent food both in the a la carte's and buffets
-Sundy beach for long walks
-Big theatre where we enjoyed animation shows
-Amazing waterpark
-Amazing island

Not forget to mention that everyone we encountered consistently asked if everything was to our satisfaction and if there was anything they could do for us. It wasn't just going through the motions, it was sincere .

Thank you all for these summer moments to remember .

I feel quite obliged to share my experiences of this amazing hotel situated at one of the most beautiful Greek islands , Crete. I visited Fodele Beach Resort last summer , with my girlfriend, stayed for a week , had the most delicious Mediterranean food of my life and had the chance to spend a rather memorable week at this "Hospitality Heaven". Every day we were having a delicious breakfast, then staying for hours under the unique Greek sun ( doing water-sports, water slides, volleyball etc.) where we were having exotic cocktails and during the night we were having our dinner in front of the sea.
I know that I can not easily describe this amazing experience we had there , nevertheless I strongly recommend Fodele Beach Resort for spending your summer holidays.

Fodele beach is an amazing hotel in Crete just by the sea.. The view is incredible from every single point of the hotel. The waterpark has many slides for every type of rider.. The food is very tasty with large variety of dishes , the cocktails special by always polite and attentive barmen and very comfortable and clean rooms.

Stayed September 2013

Excellent hotel , with many amenities and very polite and helpfull staff . Many activities such as tennis , archery etc.. Entertaining animation shows and traditional folklore greek nights..Weather very warm for this period ! Not forget to mention that cretan cuisine is very tasty not only in the hotel's restaurants but also to traditional tavernas we visited in excurtions to the suburbs.

No way this is a five star hotel .service is terrible .hotel is built on a hill .only suitable for very good athletes....rooms are dull .food is below average .hotel is dirty.air-conditioning is not suitable for the rooms so it doesn't keep it cool enough. Water park is nice but that's it !!! Its not worth the money you pay.

Excellent infrastructure:
- main restaurant with great variety of food, national dishes evenings(Japanese, Greek etc.)
- lunch boxes, when needed(should request in advance)
- snack bar(works until the supper starts)
- paid bar: lobster nights. (should reserve in advance)
- cocktails bar(7-12 pm)
- clean beach and sea (no need in special shoes)
- shower on the beach
- bar on the beach(beer, vermouths, juice)
- excellent aqua park
- tennis court
- mini-golf
- 6-days a week animation(day/evening-time)
- nanny service

Excellent service:
- cake for 'just married'
- everyday room service (leave at least 1 EUR)
- diving instructor is very experienced guy, helps during the first steps

Anyway, there were cons: no farmacy nearby(I'd recommend to buy tabs for motion sickness, because of serpantin road in the nearest village/town: they're called 'EMMETO STOP').
