    Location 3.0 /10

    Built on the seashore, almost directly facing Thoudourou Island, named after the famous Greek mythology monster, and where lives a protected species of goats, the Creta Paradise is located less than one mile from the small village of Platanias, about 8 miles west of La Chanee, and about 19 miles from the international airport. Heraklion is 100 miles away. For those who enjoy sea crossings, the hotel is 10.5 miles from the port of Souda. A neighbour of the Creta Princess, it is located in an area that is worth seeing.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The hotel has 230 accommodations of various types, from a standard room to a suite, distributed between a main building and bungalows. Nothing is left to chance: marble stairs, imitation olive wood, all in very good taste. The rooms offer a view of the sea, the mountain, the swimming pool, or the gardens (a few rooms overlook the road) and have a balcony or terrace. They have air conditioning (primarily centrally controlled), television, safe (for rent), direct international access telephone, and mini-bar. The bathroom includes a bathtub and a hair dryer. Family rooms accommodate up to 5 persons.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Built in 1992 on over 145 acres, the hotel tries to recreate the atmosphere of a Cretan village. A large space is dedicated to vegetation which covers small alleys tiled in light-coloured granite, from one fountain to another. Every exterior detail appears to have been the object of particular attention, which gives the site a clean and well-maintained appearance. The hotel's horizontal architecture allows its three blocks to marvellously hide among olive trees, palm trees, banana trees, bougainvilleas, and angelicas.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel has three restaurants and three bars. The main restaurant, the Artemis, offers theme buffets (Cretan, Italian, barbecue, etc.) as well as vegetarian and healthy dishes. In addition, guests have a choice between the Olympus and the romantic Aphrodite tavern which serves à la carte meals by the pool. Two of the three bars are also snack bars.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    Area beaches are prettier than those of the Heraklion area and the beach of the Creta Paradise, a few steps from the hotel, is no exception. Equipped with deckchairs and parasols (for rent) and showers, it is long and wide, which is rare in Crete. It is beautiful and calm, and the water is azure. One drawback: The sand is not very fine. There is a water sports club.

    To know

    The hotel is open from April to the end of October. Guests, mostly families, is European and primarily German. The beach earned a ''Blue Flag'' award from the European Union, which is given to beaches that are clean, sheltered from waves and wind, and respectful of nature. There are 27 such beaches in Crete.

      This is one of the rare hotels that meets international standards in the Chania region, in the west of the island. After a chaotic beginning due to erratic (and shady) management, the hotel has reached cruising speed after getting rid of its original clientèle of first generation Israeli Russians, now replaced by peaceful Scandinavians.
