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.

    Location 7.0 /10

    In Hersonissos, a 10-minute walk from the centre. Héraklion International Airport is 30 minutes away. Note that the hotel is in a quiet area on the seafront. The coast is a little rugged, but it has the same wildness that makes the island so charming. A bar has been installed with a covered terrace, but otherwise tourists can pretty much put their deckchairs where they like, with a pleasant sense of freedom in this natural setting. An artificial seawall has also been built off the coast on the rocks where tourists come to set up their deckchairs and parasols. The waters are crystal clear. The public beach with its coarse sand is just next door.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    312 guest rooms, 250 of which have been renovated. The pathways to the lodgings among the flower-filled and well-maintained structures are very pleasant. The hotel has managed to maintain a certain intimacy in its proportions and the buildings are only one-storey high. Inside, the guest rooms are spacious at 27m². The decoration has been updated, and even though fans of designer decor will have already moved on, the facilities are very reasonable. Faux wood floors, but real bathrooms (albeit small) with bathtubs. A few amenities: a small (empty) fridge, free Wi-Fi Internet access, a flat-screen television and a DVD player in all the guest rooms. Note that the rooms also have a spacious balcony, and for those overlooking the swimming pool, the village impression is not lost. Welcoming. Beware of noise from the evening entertainment if you are in a poolside room. To avoid any problems, ask for a garden-side room.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Built in 1986, the Silva Beach was last renovated in 2009 and the hotel has maintained its elegant appearance and its village style. The accommodation is spread across several buildings with colourful, Mediterranean-inspired architecture. There are not many green spaces, but there is still vegetation all the way to the guest rooms. At the heart of the hotel is the highlight of the holiday, the large saltwater swimming pool surrounded by a sun lounge. You have to put up with the musical accompaniment (fancy a dance at 11:00am?) that comes with the entertainment however. A large bar with a terrace opens onto the main swimming pool, with a second bar off-site. For fans of treatments, there is a spa: small, windowless, and laid out as best as possible in the restricted basement space, the spa comprises two treatment rooms with massages and manicures. The sauna, Jacuzzi and hammam are all free to use. However, there is an entrance fee for the little gym (four machines). The Silva Beach is also big on sport: the tennis court is in good condition and is much more inviting than the beach volley-ball pitch next to it with its sand... and stones. A boules ground and a ping pong table.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The main restaurant serves a buffet everyday with meats (pork, veal) and fish, local products and Greek specialities, pizzas, pasta, quiches, etc. The menu changes every two weeks. There is also a vegetarian menu and show cooking for entertainment. If nevertheless you find that this is all a little too redundant, feel free to try out the neighbouring restaurants and taverns. For a bit of variety, there is also the à la carte restaurant the Olive Tree. On the menu: tomato soup, chicken stuffed with goat's cheese and black olives, cod fillet with ouzo and... lobster on the set menu (among other things, don't worry). Crete is a gourmet destination in itself. Three bars (lobby, beach and pool). The beach bar is not directly on the beach, but rather to one side, which is nice.

      The Silva Beach is an all-inclusive, friendly hotel. The setting, with its nice colourful shades and flowers, is very pleasant, and its location is perfect if you want to enjoy the busy life of the city of Hersonissos. Its only downside, however, is that its beach is not very big.

      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.
