We stayed here from 5th till 12th September 2017 and it was our first holiday together as a couple.
On arrival, we were given a warm welcome, we arrived very late on the night time and straight away were given a meal which we did not expect at all. Our room was cleaned very day and fresh towels given. We had a lovely view of the pool and the area where the sunbeds were nice and quiet so you could enjoy sunbathing. The waiters in the Palmera Beach restaurant were fantastic and always had time to chat with you and make you laugh. The two ladies on reception were so helpful and brilliant to chat to, nothing was ever a problem if we asked about the bus services or ordering a taxi. The bar lady was so kind also, she would chat to us about Greece and give us information about the area. Mr Nikos on a night time was so funny and always left us laughing and smiling on an evening. The food was lovely and there was always a variety of choice. Overall Palmera Beach Hotel made our first couples holiday a holiday of a life time and one we won't forget. We will be recommending your hotel to our family and friends and we will definitely be returning to this beautiful resort.
Thank you again for making our holiday so perfect!

Mark Wheeler and Sarah Moody.

Going to start off with the simple question of should I stay here again? The answer would be a definite no and I'll elaborate on the good and bad. First the good things are the staff are really friendly and had no issues with them at all. Every question or when I was ordering food everything was fine and never any issues.

The hotel room was nice looking but the beds are awful I had one normal nights sleep and that was because I was drunk. You have to pay for the air con 7 euros per day and trust me you will need it and they know that so they do try to rinse you on your cash on that point. Pool is small but we knew that going only really use it for a dip to cool off if we're sunbathing. They do supply floats instead of you having to go to the shop and buy some if you like a chill on them in the pool.

The massive thing for me is that the spa ripped is off and flat out refused a refund. I explained we couldn't go to the massage because my girlfriend had been in hospital from gastroenteritis but they basically said tough so beware of the spa once they take your money your no longer relevant.

Dear Nate1427,

Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback and your recent experience.
We thank you for your kind words regarding our friendly staff, however are sorry to hear that your stay was not as expected due to circumstances that we were not made aware of.

Thank you for mentioning the nice looking room. It is a shame to hear that you did not enjoy your sleep in one of our newly equipped mattresses. We take this as an opportunity to invite our guests who for any reason do not find the mattress comfortable to notify us in order to find a solution on the spot. We wish you had mentioned this during your stay.

We are taking under consideration your comment regarding the air condition charges. Kindly be informed that as per the agreements made with the Tour Operators, all relevant information should be provided to the guest when choosing a hotel. We are sorry if this was not known to you in advance.

Please allow us to apologize for the misunderstanding and inconvenience between you and our cooperators at the spa. As we were informed, they did not realize that your girlfriend would not want to replace the treatment for a different day, as they said to you. At the check out time, it was impossible for them to do a refund and there was no time to be able to find an alternative way to solve this issue. We sincerely apologize, but it would be nice if you had mentioned this a few days prior to your departure date.

Dear Nate,
Thank you again for your valuable comments. We hope that we will have another opportunity to welcome you and offer you an amazing guest service and an unforgettable Crete holiday.

Kindest Regards,
George Sfakianakis

Was there with my bf for one week holiday and we really loved our stay. We got very nice, new room , quiet during the nights and amazing sea wiev. The room was cleaned every day and towels were changed. Yeah, the pool is realy small, but we didnt mind cos we were almost all the time out. About staff - they are amazing - from two very nice ladies in the reception to great manager George and of course all the restaurant staff who were all the time smiling and helpful. Food is very very good and i think that everybody can choose a lot due to her/his taste. Food were always fresh and tasty. Also the specialities on grill i loved. What is very nice is that Palmera has outside seawiev restaurant where tha food is amazing too. Palmera is in the beginning of sea promenade so you have really good place to go to all the other clubs, restaurants, bus stop etc. We also rent a car for two days and visited small villages in the mountains (Lassithi plateau) and other day we went to Agios Nikolaos and Ierapetra which also worth seeing. One day we took a bus and went to Heraklion and from there with bus number 2 to Knossos which was also very nice experience. In Heraklin we visited nice renowated fort in the port. So over all it was great stay, just the only big minus (for which is not responsible Palmera hotel :-D) is - there is no beach, nice beach - beach next to the Palmera is so small and with bog stones in water which are not visible form the beach and other beaches belongs to the restaurants and have paid sunbeds and umbrellas which would not be a problem to pay, but there is problem to find a place - sometimes we didnt find any :-( and the umbreallas and beds are o much on each others so you really dont have a privacy there.

Room Tip: rooms in the new building and pay for the seawiev :-)
