    Location 7.0 /10

    The hotel is ideally located next to the water in the seaside resort of Hersonissos, which is well known for its wild club nights hosted by international DJ's who keep the dance floors full well into the early hours. Hersonissos is 16 mi from Heraklion airport, and is home to Crete's only golf club, in case you plan to practise your swing during your holiday. The Glaros shares its neighbourhood with shops and restaurants, and is also just a few minutes walk from the town centre.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The establishment's 168 rooms come in several categories: Standard (15m²), Superior (25m²), and Suite. The decor is similar to that in the lobby, with cream shades dominating the colour scheme as well as an element of sobriety. If you can, book a room at the corner of the building, as these have lots of windows for you to really enjoy the views to their fullest. They also all have either a balcony or a terrace, which further enhances the vistas. The facilities are good, with individual air conditioning, a refrigerator, and a flat screen television... but no Internet connection. The stylish bathrooms are equipped with a shower in the Standard category and a bathtub in the others.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    This superb hotel opened in 1975 and its most recent renovations were completed in 2009. The cream shades and contemporary style of the decor, the interplay of shapes and perspectives, and the comfortable classic furniture give a real sense of sophistication, without any unnecessary frills. The lobby is a joy for visitors to behold, and it is also a pleasure to make one's way through the succession of lounges. At the far end is the bar, which is attractively decorated in a modern style and boasts great views of the sea through its large picture windows. It is open until 2:00am.
    The small swimming pool is in a pleasant setting surrounded by tall palm trees, and the wooden flooring of this whole area is reminiscent of a boat deck. The maritime theme is also taken up in the white and blue decor of the main bar, with its superb views of the sea, comfortable sofas, plants, slatted wood flooring and models of sailing boats. Time gently flows by in this blissful setting. The terrace overlooks a short section of beach covered with coarse grey sand that drops into the crystal clear water, but beware of the rocky sea bed.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The main restaurant is a bit dark, but this is offset by the stylish and sophisticated modern decor seen throughout the establishment. The tables are well laid out and the dining room is very pleasant. Meals are served as a buffet, much use being made of natural ingredients in the mainly Greek cuisine. Guests can also enjoy an al fresco meal overlooking the sea at the main bar, where dishes including grills, fish and snacks are prepared 'à la carte' until late in the evening.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    Unfortunately, the beach is minute, the sand is coarse and the sea bed rocky, but the setting is superb and the crystal-clear water is just begging to be swum in. Its proximity to the hotel is another positive point. Deck chairs and parasols are provided for guests.

    To know

    Most of the hotel guests are German or Dutch, and it mainly attracts families. Guests can check in under several package deals, including all-inclusive, half-board or full-board.

      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.

      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.
