    Location 4.29 /10

    Located on Crete's northern coast, the Cretan Village is on the shore, across from Zeus Island, 15 miles east of Heraklion international airport, and a few hundred feet from the small village of Hersonissos. In an area concentrating most hotels of the island, open spaces are scarce and new buildings are sprouting everywhere. One has to travel over 6 miles to find Cretan authenticity.

    Accommodation 5.95 /10

    The hotel is split into 13 small white buildings, with coloured balconies, and offers six different accommodation types (standard rooms, family rooms, VIP rooms, etc.). It has a total of 347 rooms, all with a balcony or a terrace with a view of the sea, the pool, or the garden. They have air conditioning, television (18 channels), a safe (additional fee), a direct international access telephone, and a refrigerator. Since the renovation completed in 1996, most rooms have charming wood furniture painted in red, and a bathroom with a tub and a hair dryer. The VIP rooms are right on the water.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    This hotel, built in a Cretan horizontal style architecture, was built in 1987 on sixty hectares of gardens with abundant flowers and greenery, in a soft slope. Particularly well-fitted and very well maintained, the grounds are split in several areas suited for everyone's lifestyle: playing, resting, swimming, reading... Every area is sufficiently far from the other in order to preserve everyone's peace. Children are particularly lucky, with two playgrounds, and a giant blue slide.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Breakfast and dinner are served in the main restaurant, buffet style, with a variety of selections, including Greek specialities. There is an à la carte restaurant by the beach, open from 10.00am to 6.00pm. It is also possible to have dinner at La Taverne. There are four bars, including three snack bars, on the site. One of them, by a swimming pool, serves pizzas from 10.00am to 10.00pm. Last, the hotel periodically organises Greek or Italian evenings, as well as barbecues.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The beach is prettier here, and very close. It is long and narrow, but very pleasant because it is lined with trees. The sand is not particularly fine, but the water is delicious. It is also quiet, except for a low rumour coming from the nearby pool bar. There are deckchairs for rent, bamboo parasols and beach towels (with deposit), as well as toilet, showers, and changing rooms.

    Numerous amenities are aimed at children. The hotel is open from early April to early November.

      Good facilities, varied accommodation units, and only one real snag: the beach. Located around 12 mi from Heraklion, this hotel only offers the all-inclusive formula.

      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.

      • 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.

      • Value for money 6.87
      • 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.

      • 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.
