    Staff very helpful and kind. Room was very clean. But, i dont really think it's a 5 star hotel. The breakfast wasnt a highlight, the same each day. Must say a good word about the GYM. great

    We had a great time at vasia resort even with the covid restrictions in place. Olga was particularly helpful explaining the regulations & informing us of the happenings around the resort, even gave us a complimentary a la carte meal even though we were only staying for couple days. Good selection of food during meal times, severs are bit too gemerous with the portions (due to covid food at buffet is served). Especially liked the fresh squeezed orange juice during breakfast & the selection of food & ice cream at the snack bar. They also have a free shuttle service to a beautiful sandy beach but we also enjoyed the swimming experienced at the port next to the resort. The only thing lacking was an entertainment program, probably due to covid, but they had a kids club to keep kids entertained & the odd yoga, voleyball. Overall a lovely experience but wouldn't classify it as 5star, but got a good deal through expedia so well worth the price

    Great resort with good service ! Room that we got was a bit outdated - but spotless clean . Many pools inside this resort , good bar service , kind and polite staff ! All food is buffet style - eat all you can - but was served behind a glass wall - due to covid-19 prevention measures - what we like ! Resort was working on 1/3 of its regular capacity ( August 2020 ) - and atmosphere is really enjoyable and chill ! Great for a quiet covid time vacation ❤️🇬🇷🇬🇷 What is a little bit frustrating are just food begging cats and dogs outside - inside outdoor seating area of main restaurant . For me was not so disturbing - but for my friends was this a huge negative thing !

    Bland, Boring, Below Standards. NOT FIVE STAR!!!

    It was supposed to be an experience of a lifetime. Two best friends visiting Crete. I did all the right research and chose Vasia Resort as it stated it was a 5 star resort. Nothing is further from the truth. Since my reviews are always objective here is the Pros and Cons Pros: 1. The lobby of the resort is gorgeous 2. They had us in a beautiful villa with a downstairs room overlooking our own mini pool and upstairs overlooking the balcony 3. The resort is situated in a nice village that you can walk around and see shops. There is a supermarket across the street. 4. I did enjoy the SPA facial. That was good. Cons: 1. I booked the resort only to learn afterwards that the 5 restaurants they boast on the Internet was not available in November as its their winter season. Huge disappointment 2. It was buffer style banquet and each day was the same food with no variety - The coffee and tea was always lukewarm - The foods were never hot - always lukewarm - The food was extremely bland - The bananas were frozen - The bacon tasted like rubber - No specials of the day. IE. Omlette or pancakes... 3. Cats were running around the entire resort. The resorts reasoning is that the customers feed them but it was awful. I have never been to a five star resort where cats were everywhere 4. Internet was so bad that I had to go work in the front lobby. I never figured out the Internet 5. The SPA. - Closed on Sundays - They do not used sheets on the massage tab

    The hotel is amazing. Staff are so friendly and the food is beautiful. Everything is so clean and precise. I can’t fault it. Second visit this year and plan a third next year! Can’t recommend it enough. Sisi is a quiet place but a taxi to Hersonissos is worth it should you want night life. Sisi and this hotel is so relaxing, love it here!

    Relaxing Getaway at Unbeatable Value!

    My husband & I stayed 2 nights (way too short) at Sentido Vasia. We chose the all-inclusive option and were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness, resort size, F&B options, service and location of the resort for an unbeatable price. The food options are plentiful, although it could be repetitive after a while. The drink options are satisfactory, with local Cretan beer, red/white house wine, soft drinks, & a decent assortment of liquor for mixed drinks. The service is EXCELLENT - everyone is so friendly, attentive, and quick to help. We received a free upgrade to a huge 2 BR suite with our own semi-private pool, which was lovely to have for some peace & quiet R&R. Note that we did rent a car from Heraklion Airport to drive ourselves to the resort and back (~30 min each way). We also left the property our 2nd day to go to Agios Nikolaos & Voulisma Beach. In all, we spent about 1.5 days on the resort property in the pools, eating most of our meals, and enjoying relaxing nights. 2 callouts - we were not provided with a map of the property and didn't discover parts of the resort until our 2nd night there. I realized right when we were checking out that the spa menu has a map of the resort, which would've been helpful on Day 1. The biggest pain point is that (being in Europe/Greece) smoking is allowed everywhere outside. I was 5 months pregnant and we had to make an effort to move around during pool & meal times to avoid smokers. All in all, we had a wonderful time!
