Fantastic Hotel where you feel like a VIP
Posted Sep 11, 2016
For those of you who don't like to read long saga's, i will keep this initial part short and simply say, DO IT, you won't be disappointed.
For the longer version.
It was an interesting story how we ended up at the Georgioupolis Beach Hotel. We, my fiancé and I, were joining her family for a one week for us, two week for them vacation. As we were more of the "tag alongs" than the decision makers, it was agreed upon by the family that we would all be staying at the Corissia Princess Hotel to which we were happy with, having never been to Greece, or of course Crete before. Only weeks prior to our departure we received an email from the liquidators of "Low Cost Holidays" saying the travel company had gone bust, and the money for the pre-paid accomodation we had booked (Corissia Princess) was gone and the booking was no longer valid. Not Corissia Princesses fault, but as they were now fully booked, we needed a new hotel. We saw the Georgioupolis Beach Hotel, and just booked it. What a great decision it turned out to be. By having the family at the Corissia Princess and us at the Georgioupolis Beach Hotel, we were in the unique position to compare the hotels head to head. The bottom line was, on quality they were both very similar. But if you are the kind of person that likes being treated like a welcomed guest who's name is remembered and staff show a genuine interest in you and not just the money you spend at the hotel, then the Georgioupolis Beach Hotel wins hands down.
