We had an enjoyable stay at the Creta Palace for 7 nights half board.We booked the holiday through Voyage Prive and their booking information did not make clear just how child and family friendly this hotel is. If you are looking for quiet this hotel may not be for you. However this lack of information was not the hotels fault...

Firstly, the location of the hotel is great, not in the busy town but not far from all the action. Plenty of caffes and tavernas around the hotel, I recommend Gavalas for something very very Cretan experience The hotel itself is great, with nice decorations, close to a boutique hotel Excellent service, from the parking guy up to the Guest...

A lovely welcome with fresh local orange juice and a quiet lounge before signing in. Good room with sea view and vista of the pool and surroundings. Room and balcony very nice but noisy from above ((clacking heels at all hours from a pair of young women) The food (all buffet in the main dining room) was excellent and varied....

It's not a complete 5 star hotel: 1. The rooms are not sound proof, you can hear everything from the outside or from the hallway. 2. The wifi is terrible, almost no connection at all. 3. The hotel can use some renovation (a good paint job). For the rest: 1. The personel is great. 2. It's a child friendly hotel....

My mum and I stayed here for a week in May and had a wonderful time! We arrived late on our first night to a lovely welcome (smiles, cold drink, hot towel) and were automatically upgraded to a junior suite with full sea view, followed by the offering of a late dinner in the restaurant. Great first impression. The hotel...

Make you feel welcome from the time you arrive. Lovely staff which try very hard to do their best. Good selection of greek food. Very clean rooms and good entertainment. Real lovely for children. Beautiful beach and close enough to walk to Rethymnon. Will go there again.

Paid extra for sea view room and yes technically you can see the sea but only standing by the one-half of the patio door that isn't blocked off with a concrete wall or on the balcony. Our member of staff was supposed to check back with me after seeing whether they had a better room but never did. There is...

The swimming pool is a reasonable size with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas available. Breakfasts are the usual Greek fare but orange squash not fresh orange juice available. We didn't have meals at the hotel as we prefer to try different restaurants and there's plenty of choice nearby. We recommend Mr Gyros which is just across the road. The beach...

It was so good to arrive back at Grecotel Creta Palace after an absence of a few years. It was only once back we both realized what we had missed. From arrival to departure the staff were helpful, courteous and friendly as usual, and you know when you are home when you get a cuddle from the cleaner. It is...

We spent one week starting 12 October with our four young children and had a thoroughly fantastic vacation. We spent our entire week in the hotel as the car rental we had reserved through Sixt didn't work out so we took taxis from the airport (cost is about 90 euros per taxi per trip and takes one hour).
