    Location 1.0 /10

    The Aphrodite Beach Club is located on the northern coast, in Gouves,4 miles away from Hersonissos seaside resort. Heraklion airport is 11 miles away from the hotel. Count about 20 minutes for transfers.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The rooms are all identical and rather Spartan. Coloured in brown and red, they are only decorated with a single painting. They are dark, with wan light, and two French windows. They include two twin beds, a radiator, a fan, a direct telephone, and a radio that only works part of the time. For a supplement, you can have air conditioning (free in July and August), safe, refrigerator, and an old television. The bathroom has a sink, tub, hair dryer, and toilet. All rooms have a small balcony with a table and two chairs. Unfortunately, most views are uninteresting, and the proximity of the neighbours balcony is uncomfortable.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    Built in 1979 and renovated in 1999, the Aphrodite Beach Club includes a large central 3-storey building, and three separate annex buildings. The ground floor of the main building includes a large lobby with sitting room and library corner, a central bar, and a large TV room. Outside is the swimming pool area with a seawater pool (450 square meters) with a portion reserved for children, and a solarium covered with synthetic lawn and equipped with deckchairs and parasols (free). In addition, the hotel has an indoor 100 square meters pool. Shows are organised by activity leaders in the outdoor amphitheatre. These evenings continue in the nightclub located in the basement, under the tavern. Sports amenities (tennis court, volley ball court..) are located near the parking area. Outdoor and indoor amenities are outdated and woudl benefit from efficient renovation.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served buffet style in the main restaurant. The buffets are located in a long line in the middle of the room, with the same choice of dishes on both sides; this arrangement facilitates the flow, particularly during rush hours. The food is very basic (local and international cuisine) with a limited choice of hot dishes. Once a week, the hotel organises a theme evening (Cretan, barbecue, etc.). If you are a half-boarder, you can enjoy the lunch buffet for a supplement of 8 euro/pers/meal (6.30 GBP). Drinks are not included: Count 2 euros for a beer and 7 to 10 euros for a bottle of wine. Lastly, please note that it is possible to request an all-inclusive formula for a supplement of 15 euro/day/person for a full week (12 GBP) (2002 prices). The hotel also has a tavern with a patio overlooking the beach and the coastal road. Its menu offers a few Greek specialities as well as pizzas and snack classics. It is open from 10:00 am to midnight.

    Beach

    The beach is located in front of the hotel, on the other side of the coastal road. It is a man-made beach, with golden, but dirty sand (twigs, dried seaweed, etc.). The beach is narrow and semi-circular, framed by concrete dams where motorboats berth. It is guarded and equipped with showers, straw parasols, and deckchairs (2/day/person). A small water sports club offers various seaside activities in season. The beach bar is located within the hotel grounds. In short, this is not a very appealing place. Instead, we recommend the large public beaches a little further away.

    To know

    A team of 8 leaders who speak German, French, and English, organises games, tournaments, contests, and theme evenings. For 2 to 12 years old children, a mini-club is open in season, 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. They can also play on the playground, in the swimming area's small pool, or in the small educational zoo.

      • Location 7.0

      The Gouves Sea is a very peaceful hotel, ideally located at the centre of Crete for those who want to explore the island. There is no organised entertainment here, and only 70 guest rooms, which gives the place a real family feel. Moreover, some of the rooms have been renovated and are therefore more luxurious.

      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.

      • Location 4.0

      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.

      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.

    • Hersonissos Village Hersonissos Village Hersonissos Village

      • Value for money 6.89
      • Location 5.0

      Perched up on the slopes in the outskirts of Hersonissos, Crete's nightlife capital, the Hersonissos Village makes the most of its position outside the noisy centre. Set in verdant surroundings and benefitting from superb panoramic views of the coast, what really impressed us about the establishment was the Cretan style of the guest rooms, especially in the older buildings. Bear in mind that there is no mini-club for children here. The proximity of the sea and (small) beaches makes this a sure but unextravagant holiday destination.

      The all-inclusive Mediterraneo hotel provides a seaside holiday away from the city centre, in an unsophisticated setting. Adequatey equipped, with rooms that offer decent comforts, the hotel nevertheless lacks too much character to make guests forget how far away the beach is (1,300 ft).
