I was really impressed by the front of house staff at this hotel. They were calm, attentive and very skilled in customer service. The hotel's central pool and bar area was lovely, and the buffer breakfast was the best we've tried so far in Greece. Lots of variety, and healthier option too. We were really lucky to get an upgrade...

Every minute of our week long stay was relaxing. The staff were professional yet incredibly welcoming and friendly. The pools were beautiful, if a little cold at this time of year. We were upgraded without asking and our room was more spacious than expected. The food was varied with something for everyone. All in all, a wonderful stay - helped...

Our second and probably last time at Creatan Dream. This time we were put in basement room, with low sealing, dark and worn and with wall of next building in front of window. Very bad, for the money we paid and the ad about the rooms here this should not happen! After we and travel agents talked to them we...

We had first the hotel's most horrible room. Complained and finally after 2 days we got a much better room with a pool view. Everything was worse in this 1st room, the view, location in the basement, showerproducts, housekeeper, key, just everything. The food was good. We had a half board and it was enough. Internet not so good, it...

The view from the pool is awesome... The sunset from the pool bar is even better. Great friendly staff, great food from the restaurant and modest rooms. Great location to walk kms along the beach. Bus stop close by, lovely bakeries, shops, etc.. We seriously loved it here... Will certainly be back again. The ladies who make up the rooms...

Not all rooms are the same. Mine was an apartment where you could actually live for some more time than usual, given the comforts & facilities offered. Cooking utensils, in a modern kitchenette, which can be hidden behind its cupboard, very spacious living & bedroom (electric iron included), bathroom amenities & toiletries. Ideal for business people and couples, as well!

Me and my husband stayed at Cretan Dream Royal for 10 days in September. When we arrived we were told they didn´t have our room ready so we had to stay in another studio for two nights. That studio was horrible, downstairs, looking over the parking lot, the smell in the room was horrible, chlorine mixed with moldy smell. The...

We booked late and were a little concerned about what we were about to receive... This turned out to be an unfounded concern as the hotel was really lovely, very clean, rooms of a good standard, restaurant food was nice and varied, yet most importantly the staff were EXCELLENT - they could not do enough for you. There were some...

This is not a 5* hotel and and should not advertise as such. We were greeted in reception by a woman who was exceptionally rude. We went for a mountain view room and there is no such thing, the hotel has sea view rooms and interior view rooms. When we complained to reception the receptionist said that in Expedia there...

A hotel that went out of its way to provide a memorable experience with staff that made you feel really welcome. The accommodation was excellent, the room a good size and kept clean every day. The breakfast was very varied with eggs done any way you wanted and a wide choice of cereals, fruit and yoghurts. The buffet dinner menu...
