The bounty of shops selling good-looking, well-priced swimwear and unique handicraft gifts was handy being a stone's throw from the resort.

Situated in the north of the island, the hotel overlooks Hersonissos Beach. The village is also famed for its Ancient Roman ruins.
By plane: direct flights to Heraklion take around 4 hours from London. It's a 20-minute drive to the hotel. Free parking available.

Style & Character

Perfect for families who want to relax and have fun with a fulsome activity timetable planned, events every evening and an all-inclusive offering. The immaculate gardens are clearly cared for with love - we perched under an olive tree on the way to our room.

Service & Facilities

We loved the Cretan flare of staff uniform: traditional black sariki worn as shawls with teardrop fringes symbolising tears of mothers whose sons went to war.

Food & Drink

The Orange and carob semolina cake with carob praline, orange zest, vanilla ice cream and a basil leaf was our favourite pudding. The saganaki (graviera cheese baked in filo pastry with homemade fig jam and grape molasses) was delicious.
