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 5.0 /10

    In the northern part of Crete, some rare coastal villages have managed to remain authentic: Analipsis is one of them, where you can still sense the Cretan tradition and meet people whose activity isn't solely linked to tourism. The village's shopping street is actually 1,300 ft from the Club Olé Golden Star. Heraklion airport is 12 mi away.

    Accommodation 6.50 /10

    The hotel has 171 double rooms spread out over three one-floor buildings. The rooms are spacious enough and elegantly decorated. The narrow bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub but no hair-dryer. All rooms have a plasma screen, a mini-fridge and individual air-conditioning. It is also possible to hire a safe. All rooms also have a balcony or a terrace with a small garden furniture suite. Few of them look out to the sea, but the view of the mountains is one you will enjoy.

    Overview 7.00 /10

    With its small bridge, pier, waterslide and jacuzzi, the main pool of the Golden Star is the central point of the hotel. Next to it, a bar and some little cosy sofas are available for you to have a break or cool down. The brand new wooden deckchairs, fitted with mats are just waiting for you to experience the comfort they give! It is clear to see that a great effort in the decoration department was made when the hotel was renovated. Although there are many picture frames throughout the hotel, the kitsch style of the pictures may not be to everybody's taste, but the reception hall certainly doesn't lack any character. The hotel has a large swimming pool and a paddling pool and a straw hut houses the mini-club, with enough equipment to entertain the children.

    Food and drink 6.00 /10

    Located opposite the pool, the setting of the Golden Star's restaurant is a real delight. The pergola covered with green foliage shelters some nicely set tables and red leather armchairs. The atmosphere is quite lively too, albeit a little bit noisy. Since the hotel has been renovated, great effort has been made to improve the food, with particular focus on Greek specialities.

    Beach 6.00 /10

    To get to the seafront, all you have to do is cross the road. Unfortunately, the rocks you'll find there mean you can't take full advantage of it and you'll have to walk some 200m to find somewhere else to lay down your towel. Having said that, the sea is perfectly clear.

    To know

    Built in 1997, the Golden Star was entirely renovated for the 2009 season. Open from April to October, the hotel has a majority of French-speaking guests (90%). Ehe entertainment here is organized by a team of eight French-speaking members of staff from Club 3000. The hotel has no direct access to the beach, but a public sandy beach is located 600 ft away where you will be able to hire deckchairs and parasols on the spot.

        Malgré l'aspect tristement résidentiel de ses bâtiments d'hébergement et le manque d'intimité, les chambres offrent de belles prestations. L'aire autour de la piscine est grande et agréable, tant mieux car la plage en face est impraticable avant 200 m. L'hôtel est néanmoins bien équipé dans ses infrastructures sportives et ravira les amateurs de tennis, basket et de tir à l'arc. Au final un hôtel modeste et familial.

      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.

      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.

      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.
