    Superb

    The staff was very attentive and well trained. The spa was impressive. The alternate restaurants offered a high quality experience. We had no experience with the main restaurant.

    The prices were high given the facilitees, rooms, amenities and setting. There are many places around the globe that would provide a substantially higher caliber experience for the same or lower price.

    The staff at Grecotel Creta Palace was definitely the highlight of the trip. I also liked that there was evening entertainment almost every night.

    The hotel described the room as "Elegant room, decorated in gold, silver and ivory shades with stone or wooden floors. Ultra comfortable bed surrounded by handcrafted furniture and Italian lighting. They all enjoy sea views, while the sofa in the lounge area can sleep one child. Modern conveniences include 32-inch flat-screen tv. Bathroom with glass mosaic and marble tiles." The room was not "elegant" and did not have stone or wooden floors...we had carpet. The bed was very uncomfortable and we had to request a foam topper be added so we could sleep. I also didn't like that the beach was described as "sandy" when in fact it was rocky from about 10 feet before you got into the water. It hurt my feet so badly that I had to purchase water shoes.

    Alles wunderbar und perfekt! Als Hochzeitsreisende haben wir ein Upgrade auf eine sehr geräumige Suite bekommen :-) Freundliche Mitarbeiter, sehr gutes Frühstück, tolle Anlage mit Swimmingpool und direkt am Strand.

    Alles perfekt! Nichts zu beklagen.

    Superb

    Красивая территория отеля, очень любезный приветливый персонал, разнообразные завтраки, с элементами местных блюд и сладостей, в наличии разнообразные фрукты, десерты. В течение всего дня дети до 12 лет могут бесплатно питаться (достаточно разнообразно для взыскательных маленьких едоков), даже если вы оплачивали только размещение. Все достаточно удобно организовано. Для детей есть уроки на небольшом скалодроме - отличные инструкторы. Также организованы занятия по росписи керамики, шелка и т.п. Работает мини-клуб, где предусмотрены даже уроки тенниса для малышей. Вечером для детей каждый день помимо "мини-диско" давали небольшие представления или развлекательные игры. Для взрослых - ненавязчивая живая музыка у лобби бара, без приторных раздражающих шоу-программ, как в турции и т.п. На территории отеля есть мини-маркет, магазинчик игрушек, часовня, магазинчик местных продуктов и сувениров, пляжные товары.

    Вход в море каменистый и сразу достаточно глубоко, пляж с серо-коричневым песком, иногда перемешанным с галькой. В семейном бунгало с видом на сад около бассейна с горками было очень влажно и пахло сыростью, купальники и полотенца не сохли вообще, приходилось сушить все на пляже, разложив на шезлонгах. Рядом с отелем инфраструктура не очень развита, только 2 таверны рядом. Магазины с продуктами, аптеки и т.п. несколько удалены от отеля. До г. Ретимно 5-6 км, на машине минут 10-15 езды. Ценник на питание в отеле очень высок: если вы брали проживание+завтрак и вдруг решили поужинать в отеле (мы приехали около 10 вечера и в темноте не рискнули искать таверны в округе), за шведский стол-ужин вы должны оплатить 38 евро с человека без учета напитков (за отдельную плату), т.е. за двоих мы оставили 92 евро (ужин+по бокалу вина) . В скай-баре на крыше отеля очень красивый вид, но ценник на горячее начинается от 36 евро и выше, закуски - от 22 евро. Т.е. по уровню цен в розницу отель достаточно дорогой. По новизне номеров отелю не поставишь 5*, кое-где они требуют обновления. Море в начале октября около 22-23 градусов, не теплее. Воздух +24+26, комфортно.

    Отличный пляж, бассейн с морской водой, завтраки отличные, развлекательная программа каждый вечер и для взрослых и для маленьких гостей.

    Проблемма с лежакими не занял в 8.00 остался без места, если не пришел в течении часа их могут забрать. Рядом с отелем ни чего нет, на такси до центра ретимно 6 км.

    Peut être faut il penser à rénover les ascenseurs.

    L'excellent petit déjeuner, seule prestation à la hauteur de la réputation que fait Booked.net à l'hôtel

    Nous avions retenus deux nuits sur la pub qu'en fait Booked.net et avons été très déçus, mais ne pouvions annuler la deuxième nuit pré- payée. Déçus tout d'abord par le (mauvais) accueil : le personnel est débordé et peu aimable. Ensuite, comme il faisait trop froid pour se baigner dans la mer ou la piscine extérieure, nous sommes allés au spa, qui est gratuit mais beaucoup trop petit pour un hôtel aussi grand. Et surtout très sale ! la (petite) piscine est colonisée par des enfants, l'eau est chaude mais trouble, les bords sont gluants... Aucune précaution d'hygiène n'est observée. On circule en chaussures jusqu'au bord de la piscine, puis on refait le même trajet pieds nus mais en sens inverse jusqu'au jacuzzi... Nous n'y sommes pas retournés une deuxième fois. La situation de l'hôtel, sa fréquentation familiale l'apparente davantage à un camping amélioré qu'à un hôtel de classe. Beaucoup, beaucoup trop cher pour les prestations proposées !

    Très bon hôtel, bien situé sur l'île de Crète, ascenseur (ce qui loin d'être le cas de tous les hôtels de Crète !)
