    Everything was just absolutely amazing with this hotel! Very clean rooms and they come in everyday to clean up leaving a little treat sometimes... every room has an outdoor patio that faces the ocean. The hotel is located a 5 minute drive from the village of Agia Pelagia and its beach and also a 20 minute drive from the airport in Heraklion. (Hour to an hour and a half from caves and other big cities). The staff is just beyond delightful and is willing to help you in any way! Amentities include a gym, pool and spa where they offer a hydro massage and full body massage. They offer breakfast each morning and everyday is different with variety. Their restaurant offers dinner by reservation and full adult beverage bar. Just an overall great place to stay! As someone who spent days searching for places to stay in Crete, I highly recommend this!

    Excellent all round - Don't hesitate!

    If you're looking for a tranquil, friendly and well appointed boutique resort where you can watch the sun rise and fall whilst admiring a truly beautiful vista and listening to the sheep and goats being herded across the valley, this is it. We truly loved it! The staff are also incredibly friendly, the salt water pool and main resort area is beautifully located and the restaurant's food is stunning. The rooms are also clean, bright and well appointed, and the resort itself feels intimate and very peaceful, with incredibly attentive staff who can't do enough to ensure your stay is memorable.

    Top 4 Star Hotel located close to Heraklion

    This is an excellent 4 star hotel located close to Heraklion and the main road running along the north coast of Crete. The local beaches of Pelagia are a 5-10 minute drive away - the hotel is located above the main town in a peaceful location with views over the Aegean sea. The hotel is well appointed with a bar / restaurant / breakfast room and a good sized swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds. We had a Deluxe Suite which we found comfortable and relaxing. There were two balconies - one in the bedroom, the other in the lounge area - both afforded views over the coast. The fridge mini-bar in the room was well equipped and with room service other items could be brought to your room for a reasonable rate. We found our Suite to be modern and attractively furnished, the in room safe was of a reasonable size. We took our breakfasts at the front of the hotel near the pool - there was a good choice of foods available with a choice of hot and cold foods including fried eggs on toast, scrambled eggs, yoghurt, bread, jams, honies etc. In addition, the waitress would attend your table with fresh fruit and orange juice. Other options including omelettes could be cooked whilst you waited.

    Happy stay @ The Happy Cretan

    Wonderful hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. View is stunning and the place is peaceful and relaxing. Good breakfast with lots of fresh baked goods. Beaches are close by however driving to and from is not for the faint of heart. You can always hire a local taxi for a nominal fee. Always a little extra something awaited us in our room each evening. ie Chilled Sparkling Wine and/or lovely sweets. We highly recommend this quant hotel for a nice break from the hustle and bustle of life.
