Hotel proche de la plage et superbe vue

Posted Apr 29, 2015
L'hotel est situé à 6km d'Héraklion et offre une vue magnifique sur la mer. Nous avons eu une suite bungalow en hauteur , super clean et meme la salle de bain était à tomber avec sa vue sur la plage aussi (il y a quand meme un store pour s'abriter des curieux :) ) Le buffet du pdj est hyper varié et très bien rempli, y'a meme trop de choix. Je conseille vivement cet hotel et tout ces equipements biens entretenus.

Room with THE View!

Posted Apr 8, 2015
Pros: The room - size, layout and view. Friendly staff. Great decor of the common areas of the hotel. Superb beachfront location and beach access from room
Cons: More operational areas during off-peak or clear statement of facilities not active during off-peak especially since outside restaurant options limited
Location: Not much! Kokkini Hani is not much of a village an no real local vibe in bars and restaurants, Just 1-2 taverns or so.
Superb room, view and service and great value for money via the Expedia booking. Downside is limited facilities during the 'off peak' season we went in aka 1st week of April. Despite what the website says, none of the pools are in action and barely any of the bars are operational save the lobby bar from afternoon onwards and a single restaurant is in operation with only a buffet dinner available. Also one big downside for a property this size (and lazing potential!) is lack of any room service including drinks. Since outside options in the near vicinity are extremely limited this can be a real drawback

Pros: freundliches personal
Personal hat sich sehr zu meiner zufriedenheit um alles bemüht. da aufenthalt auserhalb der saison gewesen ist, kann ich über den zustand vom badestrand und der poolanlage nichts sagen, da diese noch nicht zum benutzen aufbereitet waren. das benützte bild mit der top poolanlage dürfte auserhalb der saison nicht auf der webside gezeigt werden, denn das ist nicht so vorhanden.

Great for visiting historical sites

Posted Mar 9, 2015
Pros: Comfortable room; convenient for transport; very welcoming staff.
Cons: Better choice for breakfast, especially tea with milk & filter coffee.
Location: Need to go into Heraklion for things to do. I assume it will be more lively in the summer season.
Great location for visiting historical sites, on a very convenient coach route to Heraklion (though we used taxis initially before finding how good the buses were). Very comfortable room. Didn't use restaurant facilities except for breakfast as lunch & dinner were not available in March. March was also too cold for swimming, but the small beach looked OK. The staff were extremely obliging & keen to do everything to help. We specifically came to visit historical sites & museums, so had no interest in beaches, nightlife etc.

A wonderful place to relax

Posted Jan 5, 2015 on Hotels.com
My husband and I stayed at Knossos beach for the second week of our honeymoon. I can't imagine a better experience. Accommodating and friendly staff, beautiful room and view, and delicious food. We can't wait to go back.

Nothing great, just ok.

Posted Nov 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
Rooms were just allright, nothing more. Bathrooms were dated and in need of immediate repair (toilet, shower, paint etc.). Buffet that was included was decent with a good variety. Taste was ok. Servers were friendly.

Prima hotel aan lekker prive strand

Posted Oct 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
Met dochter van 17 paar dagen in Knossos Beach geweest. Prima hotel, goede kamer aan het strand (beach bungalow). Kamer was geschikt voor 4 personen, bedden ok, flatscreens, koelkastje, basic badkamer, vers fruit op kamer bij aankomst. Laat in de avond aangekomen, maar er was keurig wat te eten geregeld in restaurant (cold plate). Lekker prive strand, prima service ( auto huur via hotel). Niet met geld hoeven rondlopen, alles werd netjes op de kamer geboekt. Buffet is dik in orde.

Great beach access

Posted Oct 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
The beach access was great as were the views from my room. The wifi service is terrible, it is available in common areas but is not consistent and keeps dropping off. The hotel needs better maintenance. With the exception of the beach it is not near anything so the location is not great if you plan to go out and see the island. Altho there was great traditional food within walking distance at a taverna in the nearby village. If you simply want to relax on the beach and dont need wifi it is a good choice. Indid not bring children with me, but it is definitely good for families with small children. I may book here again.

Thumbs up

Posted Oct 11, 2014
Despite being end of September, the weather was still hot. The hotel itself was a very pleasant experience. We were upgraded to an amazing suite, buffet food for breakfast/lunch/dinner was varied and of good quality. Staff was very friendly. There is not much to do near the hotel, but if you're looking for a chilled holiday this is the right place!
