As the title of my evaluation recognizable, travel i every year - time alone, times as a couple - to Kreta. The decision for the Hotel Fereniki is it regularly quite easy: it offers everything, which one for a beach vacation on Kreta needs. And the emphasis on the last sentence is located on 'beach holiday'. My opinion is that in the vast, other posts here, in other words often forgotten, why one to Kreta fly. Definitely not at the hotel because of. My li …  read hotel review

  • August 2014
3 Stars as expected. We got a "Studio" (basic but included a kitchen area) and "doublezimmer" aka Queen sized bed (Americans will appreciate that) instead of 2 Twin beds. The room was cleaned (mopped) daily and new towels arrived every 2 days (no weekends). Decent sized as well and was nice and cool. You my need to opt for AC which is €5/day. There were lots of Germans and Russians. That's ok though as I am from NYC, we have the same thing there!) Generally middle aged families (say 30s - 40s) as this place is billed as a ... "Family" hotel. read hotel review
  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    There are a lot of little shops, bars and restaurants as well as as other hotels so get out of your room and enjoy the area. We had dinner at the Corissia Princess and that's a bit better with regards to presentation. Food being traditional Greek and buffet style, you can eat as much as you want but skip the all inclusive as it's pretty much the same all the time. For my tastes, wasn't up to snuff. Breakfast was fine but I rathered eating dinner at the other (nice) restaurants round. The area was kept clean and the waiters were very efficient and getting rid of your emptied plates.

  • Service
    5.0

    The staff was great and generally friendly and most spoke a little English. As mentioned everything was great about the room and hotel in general. WiFi service was only available in certain areas and as such not as useful as it could have been. A few of the bars and few restaurants offer free WiFi so get out there if you need that. If not then sit back and relax and enjoy the wonderful views and take a walk on the beach as it's good (well not blue waters from the Caribbean good but yeah.. still good!).

  • Room
    5.0

    Room was never a problem. We loved it there even if the building might have been older (probably just the "Greek" look, i'm from NYC so i'm used to concrete and glass :P) However lots of great architecture locally and to visit around so don't spend much time here even if it is comfortable. The AC while it works only goes down to a certain level so of cool and for $5 it was still worth it when you travel in August, maybe not so much in cooler months as the rooms are generally cool most of the day till the late afternoon sun hits. This wont matter however as you'll be enjoying a trip somewhere or relaxing by the beach or in the pool!

  • Sport & Leisure
    4.0

    There are 5 pools included in the resort. You will see one as you are entering the property. That one you should stay away from. The rest are in the back by the beach and the front on the other side of the reception desk. The spa was lovely, nice people there. The Jacuzzi might need a cleaning however as it was moldy. Beach was great... can't say more than I've already said.

  • Location
    4.0

    The views and water are great and it was within 100m from my room. The airport however was about a 1.5 - 2hr trip with stops for other hotels if you take the bus. If you drive it's about 80KM or say 50 Miles. There are lots of close by options to go sight seeing. Rethymon is a good town or Chania to go see some of the older architecture and of-course shopping. There is also a nice lake but wear beach shoes as it's silt and stoney so if you have soft feet you'll probably not like the feeling.

    Transfer time until 1.5 hours. The beach is depending on the location of the accommodation within easy reach (about 300 meters). Sun loungers offer many taverns for a drinks a day, so that one for 4 €on day 2 beach chairs and an umbrella to use. The hotel does not have its own beach chairs. The beach (sandy beach) is a nice, clean and loads to walks (9 kilometer on item possible) a. It also offers plenty of tavernas, where you can relax.

    The staff is always tried complaints but also suggestions to follow or structures to change. A change was within a day. , although the hotel was quite full. A virtue however, you should bring along much, much patience at the reception, since these, in particular in and check in permanently overburdened is. Useful knowledge of russian been.

    This is the archilesferse of the hotel. Generally you should consider when booking 3 stars not the olymp expect. We were pleasantly surprised but the selection and quality of the food. It was cooked greek and there was the usual choice of a 3 star hotel so buffet with several meat and fish, and different side dishes. The hotel has however only on a much to small speisesaal'in the various buffets are built, and several outdoor area (partially with canvas covered and laterally lockable) in various sizes, but with strong wind or rain rather not to sit on. Due to the large number of guests were often food or so banal things like cups, cutlery or plates, so that it too long waiting. The behavior of the guests from eastern europe made then the whole to a daily an exciting experience.

Did not meet our expectations. It has 5 houses to fereniki and only a ess and drinking opportunity. There is also no pool bar. Unfortunately the way to the food or on the beach partially to 600 metres, it is important, where you get your room. Unfortunately, suburb decided, which is free. All-inclusive is not recommended, since one anyway beverage shopping should. Unfortunately understands the staff didn't speak german, you can't even mineral water pour. 90% of the guests were russian and the rest was mixed. Unfortunately were in the week only 2 couples from Germany. Beach rocks, be careful ... with the entering into the sea. With this hotel, it would be much change angefange from the front desk, unfortunately for 5 houses not enough staff. All the complaints from the people. Some are within a week 3 times moved, this is not normal. read hotel review

During the three days was not room cleaned. 2 days there was no hot or cold water, so we took a shower on the beach. The first ten days of once had a change of bed linen and towels. Two days all towels, and then instead of towels and bath towels were the füßbodenmatte issued. German tv was missing. Absolutely no work restaurant organises. The constant lack of cutlery and crockery. Coffeemakers are broken. Very, very long queues for the preservation of food and lack of food. Repeatedly to reception complaints, a complete disregard for the hotel staff guests.
