A small hotel with a warm atmosphere. Peace and socialising are the keywords here. Ideally located facing the sea, you couldn't ask for more for a few days on this northern coast of Crete.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Built in 1984, the hotel doesn't look its age. The various small white buildings scattered across a garden are reminiscent of the streets of a typical Greek village. The ensemble is charming and inviting. Different small patios are decorated with plants and flowers, cactuses, bougainvillea, palms, olive trees. You really feel like you're in the Mediterranean here. The decor is simple and modern with occasional touches of authenticity. On cooler evenings, guests can warm up by the fireplace in the lobby.
    Two beautiful pools allow guests to swim in peace. Another pool is specially reserved for kids. In terms of activities, tennis, a table tennis and a gym are available for guests to use. There is no kids club but outdoor games have been installed for children. There is no entertainment in this hotel, other than in the evening. Theme nights are organised: Greek night, BBQ night. Suffice to say that the entertainment is light. For relaxation, head to the small spa. The Zen atmosphere reveals an indoor swimming pool, a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. Massages are also available. The more sporty types can burn off some fat in the gym.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The restaurant is located near the lobby. A large dining room in brown and beige tones welcomes guests. The dark furniture fits perfectly with the exposed stone walls. Those who want to enjoy the Cretan climate can sit out on the large terrace with a view of the sea and pool. Meals are served in buffet style. Guests can sample both local and international cuisine.
    Another restoration point is the snack bar on the other side of the road facing the sea. Here you can enjoy the cooling sea breeze. Guests can eat breakfast on a beautiful wooden terrace, have a drink and or simply pass the time of day. Cretan dishes as well as international food are served.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The hotel faces the sea. To get to the beach you have to cross a small road, with very little traffic. Opposite the hotel, you will not find a large sandy beach but rather a number of small secluded creeks. They are idyllic, but watch out for the rocks. Guests can also discover the beautiful view of the bay. The water is turquoise. Deckchairs and parasols come at an extra cost.

      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.

      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.

      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.
