Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

If a place can be called heaven this is the place. Beautiful place near the Laguna and service with smile that make your day. The only bad is when you return you'll need to do a lot of sport to lose all the weight.

This hotel is beautiful! It is in the middle of no where but they do supply a bus to their private beach. My holiday was made by the amazing, dedicated staff I met Ivona & Micky! They made the experience a hundred times better by looking after us, having a good laugh and giving good recommendations. The food wasn't great...

Married couple in their 70s visited mid May. We had paid heed to the layout of the hotel on a steep cliff and requested a room close to reception. The Guest Relations Manager, Fanny, found us the perfect room so that the main bar, main restaurant and the quite pool were all within easy reach. We managed to do the...

This resort is attractively arranged in a series of terraces leading down to a small beach. The views across the bay towards Agia Pelagia are spectacular. Because the hotel is set on a steep sided promontory, you need to negotiate many steps to go down to the beach or up to the restaurants from your rooms. There is a minibus...

The Athina Palace sits on the side of a steep promontory about 15 minutes drive from Crete's capital city, Heraklion. Most of the rooms have an impressive sea view and our's was spacious with a good sized balcony. The bathroom was very basic and poor for a so-called 5-star property. And that's where the problem lies - categorising the hotel...

We came to Athina Palace for a week, and ended up extending our stay to two weeks. The location is beautiful, with great views. The buffets had enough variety that even the picky eaters in the family had something to eat, although they could do a better job cleaning tables between guests. The two pool areas are lovely, with options...
