    Location 10.0 /10

    The Bella Maris is located on the northern coast of Crete, 15 miles east of Heraklion, and 14 miles from Kazantzakis international airport. This part of Crete has been spoiled by ongoing or completed construction. Only olive tree fields manage to reduce, in certain areas, the impression of desolation caused by destructive, uncontrolled tourism. A wide alley lined with olive tree fields leads to the Bella Maris, built along the seashore, a few miles from the small city of Hersonissos.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The hotel includes 147 standard rooms. All rooms have a balcony or a terrace with wicker chairs, offering a view of the sea, the swimming pool, or the garden. They have air conditioning, satellite television, a direct international access telephone, and a refrigerator. The bathroom features a tub or a shower and a hair dryer. There is a safe at the front desk.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1994 on fifty hectares of flat ground, and renovated in 2000, the Bella Maris includes seven two-storey blocks, each with an elevator. Fine brick buildings, blue-green shutters, roof-terraces, and façades covered with ivy, form straight shapes which are rare in this area. The swimming pool area, tiled with orange hexagonal tiles, and the dark wood deckchairs, give the place a certain warmth contrary to the coolness of this quasi-Nordic architecture. Gardens are spacious and airy, although vegetation is not abundant.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Meals are served according to three options. The main restaurant offers all types of dishes (including Cretan specialities), buffet-style, in a pleasant, friendly environment. There is a snack bar for people in a hurry. You can also order room service. The hotel includes three bars: the beach bar, the pool bar, and the main bar, that also offers quick meals.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Just a few steps from the hotel, there is a nice beach, which is not the case for most hotels of the island's northern coast. Wide and relatively long, this beach is cleaned three times a week. The hotel has provided deckchairs, parasols (in braided straw) and showers for the comfort of its guests; the sea is crystal-clear. However, the sand is not fine, the wind sometimes strong, and scooters too numerous in the small alley along the sand.

    To know

    It is open from the end of March to early November. The absence of quietness is notable.

      • Location 9.43

      The Hara Ilios is a family-oriented, old fashioned establishment that is a bit withdrawn from the sea but that has a lot of charm. The amenities are modest, to avoid saying Spartan, especially in the guest rooms. The Cretan village atmosphere is particularly enjoyable and the hotel provides a good starting point to set off on many an expedition into the marvels of the island of Crete.

      • Location 7.81

      This hotel, in the centre of Hersonissos, does not live up to its promise of a luxury stay, and it is surrounded by an unattractive urban landscape. In short, the Hersonissos Palace, which offers both the half-board and the all-inclusive option, is in serious need of renovation work if it wishes to reclaim its luxury status.

      The Stella Palace opened as recently as 2008 and it claims to offer a high level of comfort, though the layout of its rooms and their amenities are not exactly luxurious. In fact, the highlight of this brand new hotel is its two huge lagoon pools.

      A stone's throw from the centre of Hersonissos and its lively nightlife and with direct access to the sea, the Aquis Silva Beach Hotel is entirely dedicated to adults. Good facilities for this village-style, friendly and sporty hotel, but don't expect more from the spa than a small well-being centre.

      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.
