    Location 6.8 /10

    The Alexander Beach is located on the seashore, 10 minutes from the Stalida and Malia centres, 4 miles from Hersonissos seaside resort. Heraklion airport is 19 miles away. Count about thirty minutes for transfers.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The rooms are quite spacious (270 feet²) and pleasant. Interior design is very nice, with bright colours, bas-reliefs, modern paintings, and handmade tapestries. The standard double rooms are oriented onto the sea (with supplement) or the mountain. For your comfort, there is a telephone with direct international access, safe (for a fee), refrigerator (for a fee), air conditioning (free from the 15th June to the 31st August), and a balcony or terrace. Superior double rooms have partial seaview and have a refrigerator and air conditioning. Family rooms include 2 separate bedrooms and a refrigerator. All bathrooms are bright and airy thanks to a window that opens onto the outside. They have a sink, tub or shower, hair dryer and toilet.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Built in the late eighties in a park of over 7 acres, the Alexander Beach is a hotel extending along the seashore. On one extremity is the main building with restaurants, shops, sitting rooms, bar, 2 tennis courts and, of course, the swimming pool area. The latter includes a 3,766 feet² rounded pool, spanned by a wooden bridge. Solariums are surrounded with lawns and are distributed in terraces forming a sort of amphitheatre centered around a small stage, down to the beach (deckchairs and parasols, for a fee). In the basement, there is a small nightclub and a wellness centre with indoor swimming pool, fitness room, and sauna. The 300 rooms are distributed among several 2 to 3-storey local architecture buildings forming a small Cretan village around a main road and a long central square. The mini-club is located in the back, slightly off-centered. There, a swimming pool and playground are entirely dedicated to children.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The restaurant is a very pretty room, decorated with icons, stone, wood, and wicker. It is lit by large windows offering a view of the sea. Buffets, served for breakfast and dinner, are displayed in a magnificent octagonal room topped by a massive wooden frame. In this rustic, friendly atmosphere, the local and international cuisine offers a selection of 3 or 4 hot dishes (served at the table). For lunch, you can go to the tavern where an appealing terrace overlooks the pool. It is unfortunate that the menu is so snack-oriented and does not offer more local specialities. However, once a week, the hotel organises the Zorbas night, at the tavern, whose theme is Cretan cuisine and folklore (with supplement).

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The public beach, located in front of the Alexander Beach, is quiet because it is reserved to the guests of the hotel. It is a long narrow beach (33 feet wide and about 330 feet long), with fine, golden sand. Regarding amenities, you will find deckchairs, parasols (for a fee), changing rooms, and showers. On one extremity, on a pontoon, a water sports club offers various activities. The beach is guarded, and swimming is not particularly dangerous (few rocks in the water).

    To know

    The hotel has a small international entertainment team of 5 people who organise a variety of sports and game activities: ping pong, water polo, darts, volley ball, soccer, etc. Additionally, they organise theme and folkore evening shows. For children 4 to 9 years old, a mini-club is open in season, in the mornings and afternoons.

      The Kernos Beach offers luxuriously comfortable bungalows just a stone's throw from the resort of Malia. Although the hotel has few facilities, it does have direct access to the beach and is perfect for a peaceful beach holiday, provided you manage to avoid the unrenovated rooms in the main building.

      • Location 5.65

      The Star Beach Village is ideal for families and tight budgets, and is, as its name indicates, built like a village. It includes several buildings that provide various versions of studios, all of which include a private kitchen. Located in the town of Hersonissos, which is well known for its wild nightlife and parties that continue, full swing, into the early hours, it's close to the sea but doesn't provide direct access to the beach.

      Don't be misled by the grand name of the Kosta Mare Palace & Spa: it is a basic, all-inclusive hotel which is well-maintained but certainly not luxurious. Its many facilities raise it to four-star status, but the setting is starkly lacking in character.
