A hotel designed as a traditional Cretan village. Small houses include comfortable apartments, all equipped with kitchenettes. Young and older guests will appreciate the two outdoor swimming pool, unless they prefer to go a little further to have a swim in the Mediterranean, sheltered by a small creek. A true change of scenery!

    Location 7.0 /10

    The Candia Park Village is located across Mirabello gulf, outside of Aghios Nikolaos (2.17 miles), on the road to Elounda (3 miles). Heraklion airport is 43.5 miles away. Count a little over an hour for transfers.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The 186 rooms of this residence are distributed among a series of 2-storey maximum buildings. There are 3 types of accommodations. Studios (430 feet²) have two twin beds, additional bed and sofa in the entrance. Type A apartments (430 feet²) include a living room and a bedroom with 2 single beds in each. Type B apartments (645 feet²) include a living room with 4 additional beds, and a separate bedroom with 2 twin beds. All apartments have air conditioning, small kitchen area (refrigerator, gas cooker, tableware and coffemaker), telephone with direct line, and bathroom. Balconies and terraces are surrounded by bougainvillea and greenery. Request an apartment on the first floor: Terraces are somewhat more isolated, and the view is nicer with, sometimes, sea orientation.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Candia Park Village is a complex including 186 bungalows, with typical architecture, scattered in a large 16 acre park planted with trees. Everything was done to recreate the atmosphere of a traditional village: the reception veranda filled with flowers, the carts, the shady alleys and, of course, the central square with its steeple. On the other side of this square are the sports amenities and the swimming pool area. The latter is a vast, 21,520 feet² esplanade, built on two levels. You will find a 1,614 feet² swimming pool and a children's pool surrounded by lawns offering numerous deckchairs. On the lower level, a larger (5,380 feet²) seawater pool is spanned with a bridge. Beach towels, deckchairs, and parasols are offered free of charge.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The main restaurant is located on the village square. It is a large room built directly under a beautiful wooden frame. The large patio with pergola opens onto the square and adjoins the bar patio. The table and buffet arrangement is satisfactory, even though one must sometimes walk long distances, plate in hand, before reaching one's seat. Whether for breakfast or dinner, the food reserves no particular surprises (choice between two dishes for dinner). However, please note that, every day, you will be offered fresh fish and crayfish. Children have their own special ą la carte menu (free fruit juice). A Cretan evening and a barbecue evening are organised weekly. For lunch, you have the choice between the main restaurant menu (only in low season), or the Taverna. The latter is a small snack bar located in a typical Cretan tavern. The menu includes a nice selection of pizzas, grilled foods, and salads.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    The hotel beach is located in a remote creek, isolated from the rest of the coast. Even though it is small (230 feet long and 33 feet wide), it is a very pleasant beach. On the back, solariums arranged on terraces are isolated from the hotel by a pine hedge. Unfortunately, the orientation is such that this hedge hides the sun from 5:00 PM on. The largest part of the beach is covered with fine sand (unfortunately, one end of the beach is covered with rocks!). As for amenities, you will find deck chairs, showers, and a small club offering a wide selection of water sports (with a fee).

    To know

    Since this resort is large, it can be difficult to go from your apartment to common areas, particularly for persons with limited mobility. To be certain to have a room close to restaurants, swimming pools, sports courts, you should request one of the apartments numbered 111 to 344.

      Overlooking the sea, the Iberostar Mirabello Beach Village shines like a new penny under the Cretan sun, and the manager makes sure that it does on a daily basis! Not far from Aghios Nikolaos, guests can peacefully enjoy all the activities and amenities that are available here for adults and children alike. If you are looking for traditional architecture though, you should look elsewhere as this is a spacious, stylish and modern property. Efforts made to improve this place are evident, especially concerning the recently equipped beach.

      Surrounded on three sides by the sea, the Minos Beach Art is a cosy boutique-hotel with a rich history and the first hotel to have opened in Crete. Designed to resemble a small village, it benefits from its ideal location and lush but well-kept vegetation. You will also be pleasantly surprised to discover a gallery of stunning outdoor statues here, however, although the establishment is comfortable, the atmosphere can become a little outdated and the cuisine is sometimes disappointing.

      A good compromise between a city hotel and the services offered by a club hotel. It is obvious that the facilities are not exactly new, but as a whole they are very well-maintained and numerous, which should please both those who like the comfort of a seaside resort as well as those who like their sport (a special mention goes out to the gym). The lodgings are decent but try to avoid the rooms with a view over the city (which is not exactly the most appealing) and keep in mind that there are family rooms available.
