    Location 4.8 /10

    The Anthoussa Beach is located on the seashore, in the small village of Stalis, about six miles away from Hersonissos. Heraklion airport is 22 miles from the hotel (a little over half an hour for transfers).

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    Multiple hallways lead to the hotel's 170 rooms. All are identical: simple, spacious (26 square meters), furnished in dark wood, and covered with fitted carpet. They include a safe (for a fee), and telephone with direct international access. Air conditioning is optional and payable (6.5 euro/day in 2002). The bathroom is small and includes a sink, tub, and toilet. A small balcony with two chairs and a table offers a view of the sea, the pool, or the mountain.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    Built in 1975 and periodically renovated, the Anthanoussa Beach is composed of two modern 2 and 3-storey buildings communicating through the ground floor. In the largest building are all common areas: lobby, lounge-bar with patio, TV room, and restaurant. Obviously, the outside is dedicated to recreational activities. The swimming pool (300 square meters), of which an angle is reserved for children, is surrounded with solarium lawns overlooking the beach. They offer deckchairs and parasols (for a fee). Nearby, a small amphitheatre is used for festive evenings.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The restaurant serves three meals a day, all buffet style. It is a large, well-lit room, with the blue backdrop of the Mediterranean. However, we regretted the lack of privacy, and the omnipresent kitchen smell. Buffets are grouped in a small separate room. They offer local and international cuisine, not very varied and designed to please the mostly German clientele of the hotel. If you are a half-boarder, you can try the local specialities offered at the tavern for lunch. This will give you an opportunity to eat in the tiny room or on the large patio sheltered by an impressive metal pergola.

    Beach 6.20 /10

    The environment of the nearby beaches is semi-urban, and rather crowded in season. The beach located in front of the hotel is covered with imported grey sand, rocks, and seaweed. As a result, this is not the ideal place for a swim. To enjoy the sea, go to the large public beach located 100 meters away from the hotel. It offers deckchairs and parasols (for a fee), and showers. A small water sports club offers various seaside activities.

    To know

    If you choose a room with seaview, ask to stay in the east building: the view is more pleasant.

      The Club Olé Golden Star evidently decided to focus on activities to be able to offer their guests a fun seaside holiday in a comfortable setting. Indeed, its location in one of the rare picturesque seaside villages of Crete is a real bonus and will not fail to satisfy the needs of families eager for a change of scenery.

      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.

      Somewhere between a hacienda and a Cretan village you'll find the Chrissi Amoudia, a rustic complex which, although intensely big, isn't lacking in the charm department. The picturesque atmosphere of the Cretan village where the accommodation blocks are located is particularly appealing, though for a hotel of this standard the facilities are not really up to scratch. Located in Hersonissos, the trendiest spot on the island, this place is suitable for both families and thrill-seekers alike.
