Pros: Lovely rooms, very clean, we were on 5th floor right by the roof terrace which was nice place to sit. Also great breakfast.
Cons: It was a bit hard to find it by car, but once we did parking was was very close and not too expensive for middle of town.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, close to main areas of town for shopping and eating, nice rooms, nice roof terrace overlooking the Aegean
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The location was marvellous for walking to the important attractions. The staff couldn’t be more helpful. Our room was huge, with a double basin bathroom and a delightful shady terrace. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean (and I am fussy).
Cons: The outside street was very narrow - I wouldn’t try driving there. When the wind blows in a particular direction the jets fly overhead - however, that must affect all of the old city. I didn’t notice the planes late at night or early in the morning.
6,3 Good
Pros: Well located for ferry port and it was easy to find somewhere to eat nearby. Clean. Fast check in and check out and WiFi worked.
Cons: The property’s location meant it was noisy and very hard to sleep - it is directly below a flight path so there is the noise of planes until midnight and starting at 630am on the dot. When we stayed there were also dogs barking relentlessly for a 20 min period from just before 5am and we were woken by noise in the street at 3am too. (I am not a light sleeper...) the first room we were given (55) had a horrible smell and was on an outside terrace which was really noisy from music nearby. They moved us to 43 which had no smell but not a great start and we were still kept up with noise although we had requested a quiet room at booking. Not hotel’s fault but I would be aware... all we wanted was a good nights sleep, especially as I am five months pregnant and we had a long drive the next day, so it was not a good stay for us. Breakfast was not of best quality but was standard and ok. Whole place is a bit tired. Lastly, they didn’t ask us on check out how our stay was which was telling (bad restaurants and hotels never seem to ask, maybe because they don’t want to know...) so didn’t seem the hotel were bothered about feedback or customer experience
9,6 Excellent

Agapi Beach Resort - Heraklion - Building

R1 931+
Overview Reviews
Located in Malevizi, this beachfront property is in the entertainment district and within 3 mi (5 km) of Ammoudara Beach, Pankritio Stadium, and Theodoros Vardinogiannis Stadium. Venetian Walls is 2.9 mi (4.7 km) away.
4,2 Okay
Cons: the bathroom, comfort of the beds and smell of the entire place. The lighting in the hallways was dark. The bathrooms were extremely small and the photos highlighted were for the deluxe bungalows which was falsely advertising what to expect.
7,9 Good
Pros: the hotel is great for families with small children.
Cons: the hotel is far from the city
8,3 Excellent
Pros: - The staff are brilliant. Not only are they some of the friendliest I’ve ever met, but they also seem to have a genuine enthusiasm for their jobs. - the food was really good. They always had such a great selection for every taste. - there’s a lot of options of things to do and activities. - the massage was really good! And I thought, decently priced. - the evening entertainment was always fun. They got some great acts and the resident performers were absolutely lovely, and very good to watch. We loved their Disney themed night!!
Cons: - The cocktails need a lot of work. I never thought you could get a Cuba Libre so wrong until I went to Agapi... - the room was very outdated. I felt like I was on a cruise ship in the 70s (and not in a cool stylish way...)
9,2 Excellent
Pros: - nice staff - great location - nice hotel area - rich offer within all inclusive
Cons: - the choice of food practically did not change - water in the children's pool was too cold
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We came back Agapi Beach after 3 years, and we weren't disappointed again. The resort keeps its high standards at everything, from food to facilities. It's just perfect for traveling with kids. We will come back again.
Cons: Some of the entertainment program feels a little retro (trivia quizzes, bingo, movie nights), this has some nice charm to it, but I would expect something more suitable for 2019.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: The beach, friendly staff, the food, entertainment, the spa
Cons: Wifi in the room, bed, bathroom of the room

10,0 Excellent

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Decent room size We’ve traveled with a 2 year old boy and we received a baby cot Excelent breakfast
4,6 Okay
Pros: Buffet for dinner and breakfast was great, staff very kind.
Cons: Because the hotel parking site was full, a staff member parked our car the evening we arrived. The next morning it turned out that he had parked it in front of the hotel loading dock and the car had been damaged by someone trying to get past. It showed a big dent and scratches exactly on the spot (rear right) where a trolly would pass from the road to the sidewalk. A mere passer-by on the sidewalk could not have caused such damage. Yet the hotel refused to take any responsibility. We spent several very unpleasant hours talking to managers through the phone and ended up paying for the damages ourselves. We were only lucky that the friendly car rental service (Kydon) showed some understanding and did not charge the full amount. One would expect more from a hotel in this class.

Cons: Leaking aircondition into our bed, they tried to fix it but unsuccesfully and didnt change the room. One million of mosquitos, so unable to open window or door, good protection against insect is needed. Dirty sea water on the beach.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing stay in this beach hotel. It exceeded our expectations. At check-in we were upgraded to one of beachfront bungalows. Also, we got free dinner at hotel's a la carte restaurant as well as 15 min free massage each of us. They knew about our late arrival, so at the room we had some fresh food to eat. We booked all inclusive which was perfect. We liked the fact that during the day at the pool bar (10am-6pm), beside drinks and coffee, there is always fresh fruit and some snacks and deserts in case you want to grab something between meals. Also, at the pool bar you can have lunch, of course basic courses, but very nice, so basically you can have lunch in a bathing suit in case you are to lazy to go to the restaurant :) The food at the restaurant was fine and well presented, a lot of fresh cuisine. At the main building in front of the restaurant there is a bar (6pm-midnight), they make very good cocktails, very kind bar tenders. You can enjoy drink anywhere you want. All staff was amazing, extremely friendly and happy to help. A lot animation activities aqua gym, aqua dance, pilates, live music, table tennis competition, 1 hour walk into the village, etc. The bathroom and room was very clean. We slept very good, very quiet resort. We asked for less hard pillows and they immediately provided it. We rented a car through the hotel which was very simple. Ask a day before for a lunch bag to go if you are going to be away all day. We went to Elafonissi and Chania. Far away for one day excursion (total 440 km), but definitely was it worth it. The beach is sandy, not the best one, but it is ok, warm water despite the wind. Windy area so it is pleasant to stay in the sun. There are a lot of sunbeds an umbrellas everywhere. Clean beach towels every day. Great location, 10-15 minutes by car from the airport. Heraklion city as well. 3 min walk form hotel you will find a lot of shops. Thank you very much for amazing stay! We felt really good and relaxed.
Cons: Bed matrasses are hard. Dinner should be extended till 10 pm (now is from 7 to 9.15pm). Regarding the food, we did not like how they prepare meat, a lot of spices which we are not used of it.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very polite, genuinely helpful and kind reception and restaurant staff
4,2 Okay
Pros: - Receptionists are friendly. - Beautiful view (the garden is nice). - The weather is really good (yes I know that it does not depend on the hotel).
Cons: - Poor choice of food (for example, no even peanut butter for breakfast or packaged yogurt). - That food you can find is not tasty (croissants smell yeast, meat is too fat, sausages are terrible). - Short lunch time. - The wine is worst I have ever tasted. It's impossible to describe. It tastes like ultra cheap wine + ashes. - WiFi is not available in room (the signal is too low) only outside of room. - Room shower without a curtain. - Shampoo and soap have not been renew. - It's a bit difficult to find sunbed on the beach because guests occupy them by towels. - The sea looks a bit dirty. - Mosquitoes.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Very nicely located to beach and city
Cons: The bed needs to be softer
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very polite and kind. The location was excellent. The beach was very easy to reach. Plenty of space for parking a car. The restaurant had a good choice of food each day. For a short stay this was ok, but for more than a week it would have felt repetitive.
Cons: A bottle of water in the room each day would have been appreciated.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The views, but most of all the wonderful staff, front desk, Katarina you were amazing and so helpful, thank you , and to Hannis (?) for moving our luggage three times! The staff in the delicious Herbs restaurant, who were all attentive, helpful, polite and friendly, and to Despina who left “swans” in our spotless room. It was a wonderful stay, with easy access to the Old Town and the Harbour. Breakfast was wonderful.
Cons: Thinking??

Pros: Good location, lovely rooftop bar & restaurant overlooking the harbour. Friendly helpful staff.

8,8 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Easy to walk from here anywhere we wanted to go. We had a junior suite with sea view. Good room. Nice harbor view of the Fortress. Good breakfast.
Cons: Dark dingy hallways.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Close to the port and center, walking distance to all restaurants, old Venetian fort, shopping, extremely helpful and friendly staff helping with all bookings we needed, great value for the money! Unlike other European hotels, the bed mattress was softer providing the right kind of support for one weary back and pillows were of the highest standard for neck support!
Cons: Can’t think of any need for improvement! A little noisy at night being located on a busy street, but that can’t be fixed. Bring sound cancelling ear plugs if you are a light sleeper! I’m sure this is not a problem for most tourists!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Cozy room, harbor view, balcony, friendly and knowledgeable staff
Cons: A bit self-consciously overdesigned

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, very central and a short walk to restaurants and shops. The restaurant opposite was great, friendly staff and good local food. Breakfast was great with a selection of continental (toast, cereal, fruit and yoghurt) plus cooked items (bacon, egg, tomato and mushrooms). Friendly staff, check in and out very easy.
Cons: No complaints, we would recommend this to people staying in Heraklion.
6,7 Good
Pros: Pros: quick check-in process, great breakfast, clean room. Cons: very uncomfortable mattresses, basic accommodations, small bathroom. We arrived to the hotel around 21:00 after flying in from Athens. The check-in process was very fast; they had our key waiting on us when we arrived, so we were upstairs in our room within five minutes. The hotel offered a fresh, delicious breakfast each morning -- it was included in the price of our room -- which we took advantage of for three of the four mornings we were there. The staff were friendly and helped us with a few questions/requests throughout our stay. Overall, this was a clean hotel that is great for a budget traveler, but if you're looking for a nice hotel with a few more amenities, I'd look elsewhere.
Cons: The downside of this hotel is its simplicity. The rooms -- while clean and tidy -- are very, very basic. We weren't expecting a lot given the price and the amenities outlined on this website, but it was more basic than we were expecting. The mattresses were incredibly uncomfortable and made noise every time we rolled over, waking us up throughout the night. We stayed for four nights and not once did we sleep uninterrupted through the night. The room also didn't have an ironing board. There was an ironing board made available in a room on the sixth floor, but it was inconvenient to have to venture to the sixth floor each day to iron our clothes.
7,9 Good
Pros: Good location, good staff, good breakfast.
Cons: Uncomfortable bed, old rooms, little bathroom.

Pros: Location and hotel restaurant
Cons: Bed was not comfortable...sagging mattress Inappropriate male nude picture on the wall???

Pros: Walk to city center or the water in less than five minutes. Walked with luggage from the port to the hotel in 15 mins. Great central location. Staff was very helpful. 12 euro cab ride to airport. Breakfast was delicious and filling. Rooms were comfy. Good water pressure.
Cons: That we had to leave.
10,0 Excellent
Cons: Excellent in every way
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel was convenient, a few blocks uphill to center--or 1 block downhill to the sea--and a short walk along to the venetian fortress and one short block to a grocery store. The front desk was friendly, room was a decent size with fridge, good shower. Bed was too hard for me--but that's my preference alone. We didn't have one of the super-duper rooms with views of the sea--just a standard room. Buffet breakfast was good and we didn't go hungry. No complaints. I thought about renting a car to go out to Knossos and parking close to hotel--but forgot that idea as soon as I saw just how tight parking was on the street--so we took the bus to Knossos which was easy enough. That said--there is a paid public parking close by and the hotel does give you a voucher to lower the cost.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Front desk staff were friendly and helpful answering questions about parking, luggage storage, and surrounding area. For breakfast they provided everything anyone could want and plenty of space inside and outside.
Cons: Nothing

Cons: Food and Beverage is acceptable. Can be improved.

Pros: In general everything was as expected. The stuff is very helpful and the facilities are very clean.
Cons: Without being annoying, our room was a bit loud because it was next to the staircase.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Good food, friendly staff, lovely views.
Cons: Shower was broken.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We had a fantastic stay on Crete. The hotel is small but very cozy. It has a direct access to the beach, which was convenient for us with the baby. The staff is amazing and very helpful and the food was prepared delicious
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Great price for the offer of all inclusive.
Cons: That everything felt a little bit more underrated as the stars given to this hotel. Despite a sign signalling that no sun beds are to be reserved ... nearly all were ahead of breakfast (despite only a couple of people using them). I think it's important to have hotel house rules but they should not just be window-dressing. Every guest ought to have a right to use all of the facilities. Reserving seats or sun beds is absolutely ridiculous and staff should (as the so-called rules by the poolside state) should remove the pegs that hold towels there. Or better still, remind guests on their arrival that reserving sun loungers/beds is against house rules. Certain cultures whether it be German or British have no right to impose such archaic traditions on any other holidaymakers.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: It's my first ever trip to exact same summer destination twice in a row. As before, it fully met my expectation. The place is close to airport & the city, yet the beach is long and relaxing enough if you walk a few minutes any direction. The hotel's most valuable asset are the people working there. The staff at the restaurant - those you meet most often - are always friendly, quick and always ready to help. The bar team also deserves a 5*. The family rooms we stayed in were clean and comfy. Everything required was there. Cleaning raised no issues. Liked the food - didn't miss any particular kind if food. Was never hungry :) Exept for rare peak days, there were always sunbeds at the beach, though it's hard to fined >1 spare sunbed by the pool past 10am. There's small private car park for your car. Staff speak English, German and some speak French as well. A special thank you voes to the manager - Nikoletta - who's been very helpful in making some non-trivial arrangements for my family members.
Cons: Sometimes I missed the pool after 6:30 when it gets closed.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Delicious, amazing food, great variety! Very friendly and professional staff, very clean property, had a great time!
Kronos Hotel - Heraklion - Bedroom

Overview Reviews
When you stay at Kronos Hotel in Heraklion, you'll be by the sea, within a 10-minute walk of Natural History Museum of Crete and Heraklion Archaeological Museum. Featured amenities include a computer station, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. Limited parking is available onsite.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Great place to get your bearings upon arrival. Ideally located at the waterfront, one block from the main tourist drag with sights, shops, lots of food options and nightlife. Basic, clean and comfortable rooms with a/c, refrigerator, free wifi, TV with limited channels, (all seem standard throughout Crete). Buffet breakfast is worth including with many warm and cold options. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Seaview rooms might be worth the extra few euros, especially room #202 with a lovely view of the Rocca a Mare Fortress and Cretan Sea. 10 minute walk to Archaeological museum, short walk to catch a bus to Knossos, and even shorter walk to other touristy sites. 10€ taxi from the airport. A few designated parking spots outside, free street parking or a paid lot (€4 per night) across the street. FYI: On the booking.com website if you filter “free parking” most accommodations advertise they have this but it turns out the parking is not private/secure but free street parking. Never an issue in our experience throughout Crete late September to mid October, other than having to transport your luggage. Secure parking didn’t seem necessary, just know where you’re legally allowed to park.

Pros: Excellent staff
Cons: Parking is an issue

Pros: We have stayed in the hostel a number of times and they were able to provide our favourite room which has amazing views over the coast and harbour. Lovely staff who were very helpful.
Cons: The hotel is next to main road, lower floors can be noisy, thankfully on this stay we were on the 4th floor.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is right on the Old Town coastline near the fortress and only 10 minutes from the airport, so a great place for a stay after arrival or prior to departure. The staff was super, the breakfast very nice and we even had a balcony with a view of the sea. All of the best parts of the Old Town were within walking distance.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We only stayed at Kronos for one night - but the staff is incredibly nice and helpful. I explained to Maria that we were on our honeymoon and I wanted to make it special for my wife at each place along the way. Even though we had a short time in Iraklio, Maria went out of her way to buy flowers at a shop nearby and provide a bottle of wine as well. Location was perfect as well for us since we had to catch the ferry the next morning.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Well located in heraklion with great views of the coastline and harbour. Good size room with kingsize bed and decent shower facilities. Very hand place for a short stay.
Cons: On this occasion we were on floor 2 which was pretty noisy with loud traffic overnight.

Pros: The staff were happy, smiling and willing to cater to any needs/requests. The food in the restaurants was impeccable, always fresh ingredients with a good selection of Greek and international food. The packed lunches were good too. Light, nothing fancy but quite adequate. The room was cleaned everyday with fresh bed linen and towels. The beach towel service was very handy and a special thank you to the two ladies, Valentina and Ansi, at the resort's spa where we enjoyed a full body scrub and hot oil massage, foot and neck complete relaxation massage and an amazing facial lifting with natural Cretan oils and creams at a very reasonable price. Minas, the main bar barman and Vlad were also fantastic and with all the people here still remembered from one day to the next what we usually ordered to drink and where we had said we were going the evening before. Overall a very welcome relaxing week. Absolute nothing to complain about.
Cons: Not the resort's fault, but we prefer a compact sandy access to the sea. The beach is sandy but there are stones to overcome when entering the sea.

5,4 Okay
Pros: The breakfast was good and offered a good variety to choose from. The staff was friendly. The hotel is close to the beach and one particular restaurant really made our stay worth it. This is the "Nikoloudis" which has amazing local food for very affordable prices, great see view and very friendly staff.
Cons: I booked the first night as a separate booking (because the superior double room with see view was not available that day). This first night was cancelled the day before our holiday without warning and therefore we had to rebook something else in a panic. When we arrived at the hotel (the second night), the room we were given was not as described in the pictures, and it had a two single beds instead of a double bed which we specifically booked. We were offered to move to the room we actually booked but only the next day. The shower in the first room had mold and it was not appealing to use it at all. In the second room we got, there was still hair on the floor and the overall cleanliness was quite poor. The balcony door was broken and did not close (neighbors could theoretically come in via the balcony). We were promised that this would be fixed the next day but this was only fixed two days later. At least we were offered to use the safe for free (normally 2€/day) as a compensation. The walls are very thin and we could hear a lot of noise from other rooms. The cleaning was not done every day but I don't blame the cleaning lady as she is alone for 15 rooms or more and is clearly overworked. One day she had to prepare 10 rooms for new customers so did not clean ours. When it was serviced, the bed sheets were simply put on the bed, still folded and we had to make our bed ourselves. Moreover, all the towels we got were stained. I cannot understand how this hotel has such high grades even considering the good breakfast and nice garden and friendly staff. Quite a few other customers seemed to have complaints too.

8,8 Excellent
Pros: Very good facilities - we enjoyed the pool and the beach access. The restaurants were also incredibly good and reasonably priced - the staff working at the Greek and Italian restaurants in particular were lovely.
Cons: I found that there were never enough people working at reception, which made it frustrating when we had to wait for over 20mins for a brief question. The staff in the breakfast area were also quite rude - they were more obsessed with clearing tables than actually noticing that we had left stuff at our table to go and get more food. We were not particularly impressed to come back to find another couple sitting there. We were also supposed to get a free 15min massage but were unable to do so as no one was there to actually help us book.

Pros: The place is very nice. It has everything you need for a good vacation: Sun, sea, amazing food, bar, garden. Very welcoming staff. The food is so great! The beds were comfortable. Overall we enjoyed our stay a lot.
Cons: A lot of families with kids there, so if you want a quiet and romantic time spend with your partner it is not quite a place for you in this occasion.
5,1 Okay
Pros: The food here was pretty good. The pool was nice and deep. Our room was huge.
Cons: We booked a day at the spa and were forced to cancel with plenty of notice. The spa clerk began berating us about how bad it is for them that we cancelled. She then proceeded to yell at us and accused us of not having enough money for the spa. (We had already paid...) I brought this matter to the front desk and they did not care. That is not the mentality of a 5 star hotel. Then again, I don’t believe that this is a true 5 star. I would say it rates at a solid 4 star. Most definitely wouldn’t recommend staying here due to the attitude of the staff.

Pros: A very nice hotel located in the beautiful park of exitic trees, cery close to the beach, good and attentive personnel, excellent food. My thanks tho the personnel and management.

I expect a bit more 5*
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The location was perfect. Hotel was lovely and food was very good.
Cons: Room was quite small otherwise nothing.
6,3 Good
Pros: Liked that they had pool options though far less inspiring in real-time than the photos. Breakfast was good - but have to beg multiple times for service if you are the sort to like a coffee in the morning or need glass of soya milk for your dairy free child. But just approach the group of staff all huddled chatting in the corner and keep trying - one may notice you eventually.
Cons: Very poor reception staff - greeted with frowns (only after I’d managed their attention) and then thrown a form to complete on my own, no instruction, no pen. I was shocked by the lack of service to be honest. Others around but by no means busy. We travel for business and as a family so can compare properties from both perspectives, and spend over 5 months a year in European and middle eastern hotels and this one ranks among the most disappointing. So called harbor view - if you figure out where to look. Much better options exist in Heraklion that we’ve used before and for similar price and even lower star rating we’ve had far superior experience. Frequent travelers to Crete so wanted to check this place out but won’t plan a return and can’t recommend the hotel.

Cons: Nothing regarding the hotel. However, the airport is close by and can be rather intrusive though we very soon became accustomed to it. We were not affected by any other 'traffic' as the hotel is in a quiet position.

Cons: Bed was hard and uncomfortable
7,0 Good
Pros: Friendly, clean, a nice family hotel
Cons: The wash basin was partly blocked. The noise of aircraft taking off., But I expected that.
6,0 Good
Pros: AC was nice, just had to disconnect the card from the key to keep the power on. Beds weren't bad. Seemed pretty clean. Only there for one night, so the proximity to the port for our ferry in the morning was great for 40 euro.
Cons: Don't know much about the lift they advertise. I think it starts on the second floor? Planes are definitely noisy, but fine for a night or two; no matter where we went on Greece there were planes and helicopters making some noise.
4,2 Okay
Pros: The hotel was near the port.
Cons: It was not well cleaned. No one emtied the bin at WC. The bed was extremely hard. I stayed there two nights only because it was near the port.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: I got what was explained. Nice room to sleep in. Mine was inner. Because of stick in the country, I got late there by one night and they were flexible and supportive with my situation.
Cons: Airport is just nearby the city. So you would hear flights
7,9 Good
Pros: Room is very neat and comfortable
Cons: Nothing. This is a good place to stay. However there are very less tourist attractions near the hotel. I was expecting the staff to offer more suggestions for the novice tourists. We were bit disappointed as we couldn't spend our holidays effectively in Heraklion. I would suggest to look for the hotels near Chania as there were plenty of attractions close to Cania.
7,9 Good
Pros: The balcony was great! And perfect location for us to go to the port in the morning
Cons: Outdated but to be expected for 2 star
5,8 Okay
Pros: It cost next to nothing and had all I needed for a one night stay with a late arrival.
Cons: You get what you pay for. It's basic. The room was tiny, the furnishings were tired and it was very noisy being on the takeoff flight path from Herakleion Airport. I arrived late and got a few hours sleep before I moved on. So it did what I wanted it to do.
7,1 Good
Pros: The staff was so friendly, if you need a help they're gonna assist you. City center is not so far (15min walking) and you have free space parking
Cons: The room is a bit old and bathroom is tiny (I couldn't move inside the shower).
2,0 Mediocre
Cons: It was disgusting
