Amy Adejokun Section editor

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 4.0 /10

    Of all the places in Crete, the seaside resort of Hersonissos, renowned for its long summer nights spent on the dance floor as the DJ's do their thing, is undoubtedly the trendiest spot. The clubs here are renowned for their quality and for attracting international artists; some are even lucky enough to be located right on the beach. Having said that, just 18,5 mi from Heraklion, you'll find a rich and varied offering of hotels, and whether you are travelling alone, with a partner or even at the head of a large family, Hersonissos really does have something to offer for everyone. In the immediate vicinity of the hotel you will find a sad and dirty section of beach, as well as a few shops, including a supermarket that is just opposite.

    Accommodation 6.50 /10

    The 224 guest rooms at the hotel come in various categories, namely Standard (housed in the main building), Garden-Side Bungalow and Sea-Side Bungalow. The decor in the Standard guest rooms is rather outdated and non-existent. Amenities are decent but nothing to write home about. They consist of a tiled floor, include individual air conditioning, a refrigerator, a small cathode-ray television and a safe available to hire but no Internet connection. The tiled bathrooms are perfectly clean and all come with bathtubs. The hotel's main asset is the view over the complex from the balcony or terrace.

    Overview 8.00 /10

    Having opened in 1986, the hotel's most recent renovation was completed in 2004. Once inside the grounds, you'll really get a feel for the sheer scale of the hotel, which consists of clean white buildings that blend a Mediterranean style with Hispanic influences. Spacious and distinguished, the lobby is bathed in a cool half-light, with marble floors, wooden furniture and a rustic chandelier hanging from the ceiling. Take the few steps down and you'll find yourself in the bar, which is open from 5:30pm until midnight. It faces a comfortable and spacious lounge area furnished with large, soft sofas and a large television screen, with slightly outdated but inoffensive decor. There is also a large covered outdoor terrace where you can take a seat at one of the many tables provided and survey the grounds before you. The hotel's one and only swimming pool, which is a shame given the number of guests the hotel can accommodate, is nevertheless large and basic and has a children's section. It is surrounded by flower beds and a few trees, though the greenery is rather sparse. There is also a pool bar, open from 10:30am to 5:30pm. The complex continues further down with a series of buildings arranged in the style of a cute little Cretan village, complete with blue shutters, little alleyways and small tree-lined squares. You'll find little in the way of sports facilities here, but there is a well-equipped games room complete with a ping-pong table, (charged) Internet access and video games.

    Food and drink 7.00 /10

    The spacious dining room is housed in the main building and features decor that is basic and rustic but nevertheless pleasant. It has beautiful archways and nicely dressed tables but unfortunately only the tables near the windows offer views of the sea in the distance. The restaurant is open from 7:30am to 10:00am for breakfast, from 12:30pm to 2:30pm for lunch and from 6:15pm to 9:30pm for dinner. It serves a buffet of local and international cuisine. There is even a special section for diabetics, which is useful and something you rarely find. Barbecue nights are organised once a week and take the form of a Cretan night with traditional costume and music. Lunchtime snacks are available in the pool area.

    Beach 6.00 /10

    The hotel does not have direct access to the beach; in fact, to get to the nearest developed one, you'll need to travel 500 m. There is a free shuttle service for beach lovers that runs four times a day though. The sand here isn't particularly fine and the beach has no special features, but the water is clean and there is a water sports centre offering a wide variety of activities for a charge.

    To know

    The mini-club is free and open to children between 4 and 12 years of age, 6 days a week.

      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.

      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.
