Lovely Location, Pretty Hotel & surroundings, But not 5*

Pros: Large resort style accommodation, rooms bright and clean, Stunning surroundings, pleasant staff, pretty areas by pool to chill, large room & balcony, usually quiet at night. Cons: Uncomfortable "very hard" solid mattress, food not hot enough at times [ Luke warm dishes on buffet,] Not many choices for vegetarians, a little out of town so if you're relying on the entertainment hotel provides it can be restrictive and not to your taste. [ Not much in local area although taxis are cheap and easy 7/8 euros to main resort.] This hotel rates 4* in our opinion. This hotel is acceptable, It has the most beautiful views It does not compare to five star hotels we have stayed in other parts of Greece and Cyprus. Crete is a wonderful island of contrasts and diversity. The little trains that ferries you round the resorts is fun enabling you to see quaint villages you wouldn't know existed.

The best thing about my stay was...

Pretty surroundings with superb views

Review of the Knossos Royal

Overall I found the hotel to be very nice, slightly disappointed in the beach, it looked like powered sand but was crushed shell, also I expected there to be a computer that the guests could use but there isnt, so remember to take a laptop or tablet with you

The best thing about my stay was...

Nice array of pools so you never felt claustraphobic

Great Stay, Who Could Want For More?

We stayed there in October 2008 and we are booked in there for Oct 2010. What a fantastic Holiday Village, couldn't complain about anythimg. Staff were excellent and we had food to die for. Don't take an Iron with you, you must try the pick up, Iron & drop off service. So nice to dine in a freshly pressed shirt I say. Roll on October!!

The best thing about my stay was...

Great Week

Had read some fairly negative write ups, however, I was bemused as to what some people can moan at. Arrived on the 19th June and had booked a room for a week on the first floor villas on the front (Ariadnes-I think). Room was fabulous and had all the usual facilities and more. I has also booked up the transfer from the airport via Alpharooms which worked like clockwork. Restaurant food was very good, with very good service. Bar by the pool in the evening had excellant service, however, the entertainment was on some nights slightly pants. Beach was very clean however not sandy, but, that didn't matter to me. Very mixed nationalities of visitor, probably bumped into 10 fellow English holidaymakers. All in all 5 out of 5!!

Mr

First of all i'm very delighted sent this review for Aldemar Knossos Royal Village.It's a beautiful complex of bungalows lost in the widding streets,surrounded by plants and trees.Upon my arrival the personel of the reception showed me the importance of ''CRETAN HOSPITALITY''.The hotel has two large pools one of them huge.The sea is not offered for those who love swimming because of the rocks but at the private beach there are so many chairs for those who love sun.The many resturants gives you the possibility of many options.The hotel is not far from the center of Hersonissos town(only 15 minutes walking)but enough for those who needs a few moments of rest.A big thanks to the stuff and especially Antonis the bartender of the main-pool bar.I wish sometime in the future to revisit this magnificent hotel.

Review of 'ALDEMAR ROYAL MARE VILLAGE'

This is a great hotel - the rooms are well sized and have pretty much all the facilities you could ask for.&nbsp;&nbsp;We had adjoining rooms very close to the beach and were able to use the pool just by the front door - thought there are pools to spare in the complex.<br /><br />The beds are quite hard so anyone with back complaints could have an interesting time.<br /><br />The food at the hotel is adequate - plenty of choice and, in our experience, there really is no need to join the nightly throng at restaurant opening time. We found it a little same-ish by the end of the week so ended up eating out a couple of nights.<br /><br />Don't book a hire car in the hotel - there is an excellent provider just five minutes walk from the hotel who gave me a brand new car at about 50% of the cost of the in hotel Hertz desk.
