Me and my husband stayed at Cretan Dream Royal for 10 days in September. When we arrived we were told they didn´t have our room ready so we had to stay in another studio for two nights. That studio was horrible, downstairs, looking over the parking lot, the smell in the room was horrible, chlorine mixed with moldy smell. The... More

This is not a 5* hotel and and should not advertise as such. We were greeted in reception by a woman who was exceptionally rude. We went for a mountain view room and there is no such thing, the hotel has sea view rooms and interior view rooms. When we complained to reception the receptionist said that in Expedia there...

A hotel that went out of its way to provide a memorable experience with staff that made you feel really welcome. The accommodation was excellent, the room a good size and kept clean every day. The breakfast was very varied with eggs done any way you wanted and a wide choice of cereals, fruit and yoghurts. The buffet dinner menu... More

This is a really great place to stay. Yes it is a true five star resort with a few little frayed edges that you can live with, small missing tiles around the pool or cracked water grates but it was coming to the end of season so I suppose they will be fixed during the winter months. The staff are... More

This is a five-star experience from start to finish. You are made to feel special by every member of staff; nothing is too much trouble.

We stayed early October and were very pleased with our suite. I haven't stayed at any 5* so cannot compare; what I can say is for the price I paid on Alpharooms I was very satisfied. Buffet was adequate, not lots of choice, mainly consisted of a meat dish, pasta, vegetables etc. I must admit on some occasions they were... More
