When the receptionist gives you the key and tells you that you room is upstairs, this says all about the hotel. The beatiful pictures of the room on it's homepage was made by a pro. The room we got was in a diffeent world. We had to beg the lady to change our room next day, which she thanfully did. Breakfast in the morning- coffee was just about warm,all food was made 1-3 days beforehand. The swimming pool had not been cleaned for over a month; something like a bird dead at the bottom. The feathers, leaves,insects were floating on the surface and green fungus on the edges. No sign of Closed Swimming Pool for the guest. We felt like the host was purposely trying to make us sick.
Excellent location of the hotel (30m from the beach). The room was clean, daily equipped, fast and polite housekeeping response. The food (breakfast and dinner) was very good. Excellent service. All the staff was welcoming, polite and helpful. Congratulations to the General manager, Mrs. Mary Polychronopoulou, for making us feel welcome. We would definitely recommend this hotel to the people we know, and we would like to visit it again.
very good breakfast and dinner-different course, big choice of varieties, close to the beach
insects in the bathroom
nice price, excellent location (near to a blue flag beach), the staff was very kind, clean rooms, comfortable beds. Quiet location but still near to the centre of Platanes and only a few km's away from Rethymno.
our credit card was found to be charged by the hotel prior to arrival.
Excellent location- just near the beach, quite and 1 minute from the centre of Platanias with all restaurants, shops etc. Platanias is a very good place to be with great calm relaxation beaches, not too crowdy on the beach, great restaurants etc.. Half-board at the hotel great. good value fro money. Rooms are modest, but enough. clean
rather small pool but very nice - anyway the beach is just 50metres away
This was our first time in Crete and I must say thet we had a fantastic time. We found the hotel after getting lost on the island and reached there late afternoon. But, a quick dip in the beautiful pool swept our worries away. The hotel's manager Vasilis Tseronis is as polite and gracious as they come. The rooms were very comfortable with linen being changed daily. The breakfast was good with Vassilis personally attending to our needs. Overall, a really memorable stay. Thank you Creta Residence and all those who made us feel welcome.
Perfect location right next to the beach. Stuff is very friendly and always ready to help. The room was clean, breakfast ok. Very nice pool. Excellent choice for a family holidays to a reasonable price.
Food (dinner) was excellent!
Fittings in bathroom could bear a replacement.
buona ospitalità e otttima posizione
Hotel struttura obsoleta pulizia e manutenzione stanze scadenti!!! Lenzuole rovinate e bucate..tovaglie tavoli rotti.... Cibo colazione solo internazionale.. Colazione per chi ama il dolce....solo fette biscottate.!!!!! Cena sempre pollo... E carne stufata..... Anche se prezzo vantaggioso..vino 1/2 rosso prezzo € 6.00 (vergognoso per Creta) cambio lenzuola 1 sola volta in 14gg.. Non adatto per persone con handicapp...ascensore murata!!!
Del Creta residence abbiamo apprezzato la ottima posizione e la grande cortesia del personale .
Poca varietà nel cibo sia a colazione che a cena
La posizione per effettuare le escursioni
Non rispondente assolutamente a quanto riportato sul sito, sia come struttura e sia per il servizio veramente insufficiente sia per la colazione che per la cena.
Het meest genoten hebben mijn dochter en ik dat de manager van het hotel , Maris buitengewoon aardig en voorkomend was. Niets was haar te veel en alles binnen de haar gegeven mogelijkheden kon!! Ontbijt erg lekker en vers! Jammer dat het seizoen op z'n einde liep dat betekende dat we maar met 6 gasten inclusief wijzelf waren.
Cà tranquilité et çà proximité par rappoert à la mer
Formule demi-pension très intéressante pour une première nuit lors de l'arrivée sur l'ile. Belle terrasse et belle piscine. A proximité de la plage et des tavernes...
