    Location 8.0 /10

    Located on the seashore, the Creta Royal is located 7 miles from Rethymnon and 40 miles from Heraklion. Rethymnon is renowned for its beautiful fine sand beaches, which are rare in Crete, and for the immediate proximity of numerous archaeological sites.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The Creta Royal has 120 luxury rooms on two storeys. The furniture has nothing to do with Cretan style: marble and dark wood mingle in a white and salmon pink decor. The rooms have a telephone with direct international access, a safe (for a fee), air conditioning, satellite television, and a bathroom with a hair dryer. All rooms have a pleasant balcony overlooking the sea, or the gardens and the mountain.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The Creta Royal is a large, white, sober building in modern architecture. Built in the heart of a park with numerous trees and flowers, the hotel is bordered by a beautiful 1,300 feet sand beach. Amenities and services are high quality. With the exception of the swimming pool, all amenities are located in the neighbouring hotel, the Creta Star.

    Food and drink 7.40 /10

    A pleasant main restaurant opens onto the seashore. Spacious and well-fitted, the dining room extends with a large terrace. The food is served buffet style and offers a great diversity. Four times a week, theme evenings (Greek with folklore show, marine, etc.) are organised. For lunch, the Mistral tavern, on the sea front, offers simple meals for a reasonable price. The main bar and the pool bar offer drinks all day long.

    Beach 8.00 /10

    The beach is one of the Creta Royal's main assets. It is long, clean, covered with blond, fine sand, and extends over more than 1,300 feet. Canoeing and windsurfing are available to the hotel guests free of charge. The Creta Royal does not have its own water sports club. However, some water activities are available at a nearby club.

    To know

    The Creta Royal is part of a complex including a second hotel, the Creta Star. Both belong to the same hotel chain, Helia Mare. A rare hotel on the island to be classified in the luxe category, the Creta Royal is, however, a club hotel with light entertainment. It will suit families seeking a sophisticated hotel, as well as those who want quiet and relaxation.

        Un petit hôtel agréable adossé à une plus grosse structure (Creta star) pour les amateurs d'animation. J'y ai apprécié la cuisine assez variée et plutôt satisfaisante pour un buffet. Les piscines sont propres. L'hôtel a un accès direct sur une petite plage. L'hôtel est bien situé pour une visite de l'île mais la location de voiture est indispensable !

      • Advantages

      The Pearl Beach is a friendly establishment which is actually much larger than it might look. Located at the far end of the long Rethymnon promenade, its best assets are undoubtedly its spotless and very stylish spa and its location near the historical centre of Rethymnon.

      Set on the coast road, the May hotel is a small and very simple hotel surrounded by a lush green rectangular garden. Everything about it is outdated, but you will be greeted by a warm and friendly welcome. It is a shame that the hotel doesn't have a beach though and that the restaurant isn't any more pleasant.

We must also make a special mention of the babys' club.

If you're looking for a beach holiday, however, you can forget it, although there are some 30 private pools within the hotel grounds.

You are sure to have a unique holiday here interacting with the locals and taking part in a variety of activities that will allow you to discover a different side of Crete. One of them is a ceramics studio where you can learn about this art through demonstrations by professionals, but which also offers practical workshops during which visitors can try moulding and creating their own authentic ceramic pieces. You might also wish to attend a concert featuring traditional music or take part in the grape or olive harvest, which is ideal for those looking to do something different while enjoying the nature.

      Looking over the long beach of Rethymnon, the hotel could be mistaken for a high rise block of flats when seen from afar. Once inside, you will have a big surprise. Somewhat reminiscent of a cruise ship, the space is full of twists and turns, pontoons, parquet floors, and pretty little swimming pools... Thanks to intelligent renovation work, the hotel makes use of every nook and cranny to offer a maximum of services to its guests. There are many bay windows to allow maximum use of the natural light.
