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.

    Location 8.37 /10

    The Silva Beach is located in Hersonissos, a city known as the temple of night-life thanks to its numerous clubs and bars. There is a bus service to take you straight to Agios Nikolaos and Heraklion; the bus stop is some 600 ft from the hotel.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The hotel houses 312 rooms, of which there are two types: standard rooms and family rooms (also known as apartments). The apartments have two rooms which are nicely decorated in slate blue, light grey and brown tones. The standard rooms are smaller but just as pretty, thanks to, among other things, a very unique ceramic tile floor. They have a balcony with a view of the swimming pool (and the sea in the background), the garden or... the road. They are all equipped with air-conditioning, a television, a telephone, a refrigerator and tea and coffee-making facilities. As for the bathrooms, they feature a bathtub or a simple shower (in 15% of the rooms) and a hair-dryer.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The 312 rooms of the Silva Beach hotel are spread over two-floor buildings with several apartments in each. Inspired by the Minoan culture, which is still reflected in the temple of the Knossos, the stone walls are painted in warm colours, such as orange, pink and yellow. Maze-like paths decorated with huge potted fruit trees lead to the various rooms. The hotel houses both a busy swimming pool and a calmer one and there are two shallow pools for the children. Sports facilities are not the strong point of this establishment, but at least the minimum is on offer: a tennis court, a volley-ball pitch and a petanque court. The entertainment team only includes five people. There are Greek-themed evenings every week with demonstrations of traditional dances. A mini-club is open to children aged between 4 and 12, and the opening hours depend on the demand.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The main restaurant has a buffet set out on a veranda. There is a new theme every evening: gala, barbecue, Greek or International. There is the ever-present Cretan salad and a variety of meat and fish. One meal at the a la carte restaurant with its Mediterranean cuisine is included in your booking, however, it is only open in the high season. A snack bar offers snacks and drinks during the day.

    Beach 5.70 /10

    The Silva Beach offers direct access to several narrow sand or pebble beaches, where intimacy is hard to come by - fortunately, parasols and deck chairs are available for free. There is an independent water sports centre some 1,200 ft away.

    To know

    Built in 1996 and renovated in 2000, the Siva Beach was formerly known as the Silva Maris. It is to undergo extensive renovation work in 2010, but it should be preserving the style of its architecture which is its major asset. The renovation work should lead to the opening of a sushi bar, among other things. The hotel guests come from all over the world, but there are a lot of Germans, Belgians, Dutch and French. Families will particularly appreciate the level of hospitality. The hotel offers an all-inclusive option, but unlike the other establishments which offer this option, the beverages here are imported. Therefore, the sodas and spirits are not only local, but well-known brands.

      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.

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.
