We have spent 2 fantastic weeks at the Aldemar Cretan Village. The surroundings are great, restaurants and food are of good quality and lots of variaty for each meal. Especially good the big piece of meet that is usually grilled and displayed for dinner. Very important to mention the super and most attractive animation team led by Gigi! They are really great and are very professional in what they are doing, games, cabaret, theatre teams and others. A great plance for families and I am sure nobody would leave disappointed. Thank you to all for having given us a good ... 2 weeks of fun and relax. Claudio read hotel review

    An enjoyable relaxing holiday with good food and drink- we took the tour train to Hernosisis; which was very enjoyable winding round the cretian countryside with their many olive groves and finally arriving at the town bursting with life and typical shops to buy souvenirs- Also we could not miss the chance of visiting Knossos with the fascinating palace and being taken back in time to the mithological Greece ruled by Gods;

I don't know where to start to from! At first we were a bit suspicious due to the delay of the airplane ( and a bit tired as well).But oh boy!When we arrived at Cretan village the reception to begin with treated us so warm and kind we immediately felt like we were home.At the time we arrived the restaurant,it was closed and they opened the restaurant and cooked us food at that very time.When me and my wife needed something,the staff was always there for us.The quality of the food was perfect,with ... a huge variety to choose from.Me and my wife are vegetarians and there were all the gastronomy dishes we could possibly imagine,nonetheless the chef prepared us any dishes we desired at will.Lastly the animation team and the free drinks of the pool bar and the special events they organised made our stay much more worthwhile.It was an extra ordinary experience which we will never forget!Thank you!! read hotel review

Remarkable hotel and wonderful rest on the island of Crete. I and the husband had a rest since the end of September on the beginning of October. Very pleasant and polite personnel, food excellent, work of bars and restaurants is thought over perfectly - at any time (till 24 o'clock) it is possible to eat hot, fruit, etc. The excellent location of hotel - nearby the city of Hersonisos. The territory is planted trees and shrubs very well, everything blossoms and pleases a look! Cicadas "sing" very loudly but don't prevent to live, an arrangement of buildings very compactly. We ... recommend hotel for family rest and for romantic trips. read hotel review

Beautiful extensive plant for english-speaking tourists. Germans were not to find. In the main restaurant very unfriendly staff (breakfast, lunch and dinner) the food was an impertinence and even compared with half as expensive hotels in Tunisia and Turkey almost an assault. From small to big glitches you will find it here everything. No spoons, no cups, no milk, almost daily losses by the hour get no drinks. (all vending machines working with electricity) Coffee maker often broken or empty. The staff speaks, except for one exception no german. Maximum 3 stars and much too expensive.

I remember this holidays as one of the greatest. First of all, the animator was really great, the staff was good (if they are not speaking in russian language, they try to find another colleague, who can translate and help). The food and drinks was always fresh, there was the opportunity to choose from variety of dishes. The beach is private. there are bars in the area of it. People who work in reception are helpful, always give information that you need. You can feel good atmosphere in the hotel. We hope to get a chance to come back to ... this wonderful place. read hotel review

Just back from a wonderful holiday! We were the 2. time in this resort and were very satisfied, the room was clean (unfortunately there was the dusting), the bathroom including bath towels and so on. Was also to our satisfaction. The food is the taste was perfect (only unfortunately somewhat monotonous-especially the fruit). The large dining room (self-service) would be beautiful if a lot of tourists weren't as the pigs gestures would (and this designation a swear word for the 'pigs'!). And the staff was not and therefore the dining room is very messy looks and is. (it would be ... appropriate and more staff to meet!) Complaints, due to these deficiencies were very interested received and i had the feeling, that something is useful. Conclusion except for the above mentioned drawbacks a lovely vacation, with very friendly nice and cordial staff and recommendable (provided it disturb the numerous guests from Russia not). read hotel review

Descriptions of the hotels we had on great holidays looking forward to it. The best was probably the weather. 7 days of cloudkess skies and about 30 degrees in the june. Otherwise we arrived we were at the black sea. 90% the guests were russian families, which in the offered, language etc. Noticeable. Most of them were normal, but there were some, which, as already in other countries established, immediately after buffet opening the plates so fully and half back again left, that you be ashamed needs, bearing in mind, that somewhere else children starve. The food was also not ... very varied, but for one week stay it was ok. Only the beacherstaurant with the greek evening and the manager Eleni can a 5 + stand. The beach was very pebbly and already at the beginning of the sea you had to over the rocks in the water, as it for children nearly impossible, to swim there. Also the excursion possibilities were rather poor and very overpriced. You should definitely take a rental car (sixt) to a bit of the island to see, as it is on some places great beaches. read hotel review

Large but need of area. The food was unfortunately little varied, tasted not particularly, but for children there was every day, pasta with tomato sauce and chips, they were at least lucky. The food in the theme restaurants was good, also nice atmosphere, in comparison to dining room. The view from the dining room is beautifully, but cleanliness and interior wasn't so great. The coverings of the chairs partly dirty, the glasses and silverware not always clean, floor and furniture was very worn. Annoying was the rude waiters in the main bar, otherwise they were all friendly. The family room ... was small, beds ok, but not the mattresses look. The spider webs the 14 days accompanied, but the beds were made every 3. day freshly referred. The cleaning lady has 4 minutes to the cleaning needed. Mildew in the bathroom, but the water pressure in the shower was good. The complex is extensive, actually quite beautiful, only the houses should be times urgently reconditioned. The pools were cleaned in the morning, but they are in need of a renovation, especially the ladders. The beach and the water were super, but also here should be some couches be exchanged. The entertainment was very good, tried very hard, the shows a little slippery, perhaps not always something for children, but funny. The hotel is geared towards the russian guests, about 90%, but with english one comes through well. We had finally a nice, relaxing holiday, not weight increased but for this hotel with the facilities way too expensive and no 4 stars. read hotel review

Beautiful resort with a lot of air and greenery between the buildings. The pools are very clean. The beach includes directly on the area. The food is okay. Except for the receptionists and the entertainers the staff is not very welcoming. Also the small wassersportshop, the all-inclusive guests one or another to provide is, comes despite fewer guests not exactly friendly so. For one week sun recommended. If you want a little more glamour need, in the neighboring area 'royal' book. read hotel review

Even if a renovation urgently necessary would be, is the hotel itself architecturally very pleasant. Like a small greek village in well-kept gardens, the Cretan Village on a hill (not too steep) and opens to the sea, to the a direct access there, as well as free showers, chairs and umbrellas. It could be a bit more worth for cleanliness disclosed, we pushed these, as lots of other on the nearby end of the season. The russian guests were in the majority. Over noisy and undisciplined guests we could us not complain. It were many families with children there. A ... little tolerance and no pauschalurteile to the russian guests were in the reviews general appropriate! Food only all-inclusive.

    The rooms are quite nice and rustic, but really needs some redecorating. We wish here to most of the previous reviews. Four star however, we believe that for exorbitant. In most catalogs advertised marble bathroom has also seen better days. The terraces/balconies are big enough and are fully equipped to the part. Sea views.

    There are normally 4 restaurants/snackbars, one right next to beach. It would be good, if the beach bar not after 4 days closed would have... The main restaurant 'la veranta' was fairly large, with a nice winter garden, but the food was the horror. Uncaring show cooks were bored and in the dishes was burned minced meat and/or indefinable fish. The pastasauen were all tasteless. Bread was gummiarteig. Only the salad buffet was ample and quite tasty. The desserts were unimaginative and monotonous. Drinks can be had to be tapped, if because the water pumps still in use would have been. Once per stay you can kosgtenlos a 3-course menu in the nice restaurant 'la Pergola pergola' take (notification to the customer service ) here you can between fish and meat as a main entrance choose. The quality there was okay. The snack bar dyonisos offered during the first days a lean lunch buffet at, but also since they provided the service to 4 days completely. The bar was until 12 o'clock open in the evening and replaced at the end the lack of dyonisosbar, but essensmäßig it was even worse... The beverages were lack of functioning drink dispenser, behind the bar prepared, but was really good, as the staff there very friendly and quick was. Very good was the original italian espresso!

    The location of the hotel is quite good. And quiet, even if the airport not too far away is. The directly at the beach is great. Some taverns, souvenir shops, supermarket were within walking easy to reach. 1 time a day operates a free shuttle train into the circa 5 kilometer away Chersonisos with its myriad of shops and tavernas. A rental car is highly recommended, even if the fuel clearly over which in Germany are. The minoan palaces of Malia and knossos are by car in around 20 to 30 minutes walking distance. The nice town Agios Nikolaos is about 35 kilometers away. The lasithi- hocheben, to the it through scenic gorges and pass roads is. Free car park at the hotel. Transfer from the airport Heraklion also about half an hour

Safe good and safe, unfortunately very expensive, for two weeks 40-€ After a week vacation and a several hour total power outage, seemed every evening between 17:00 and 20:00 the air conditioning not to work.

    There are other than the main restaurant two further, we once used. Enjoyable was a diner in a semi-formal style with live music. We had, in particular Russian miturlauvern, have fun, it was properly dancing. Altogether was the selection of food large, repeated but understandably. I was annoyed, the unfortunately nearly all warm dishes, quality, almost never really at least were warm. Here is the büfettpersonal called the good offer to be highlighted! Templates, the popularity happy, were unfortunately sometimes after the first hour the planned breakfast gone. I was disappointed, after an appropriate instruction at the service-boss, initially just asking, getting up early, then on the next day but at the same time, sufficient, for example very delicious rice pudding too, jets but simply with water 'extended'. After the' meal' the service- chef with a very clear instruction into your hand pressed, happened so little, many residents joyfully notice, never again! So:if something even hooks, only and clearly and correctly addressed also say!

    The majority of the teams in the hotel was very friendly, the rest because of the advanced season already somewhat managed and therefore sometimes irritated. I have seen, in every language and form to communicate. The cleaning of the rooms was average, a beach vacation but enough. The towel service excellent. Even on a 'day of the strike' of the room staff, we were informed, the towels nevertheless changed! Unfortunately we had ubs from the 'mini club' more support, in shaping the first common vacation, with the three-year daughter we could have hoped for. Should be done the service from the animation team out, the ladies were sometimes already somewhat bored and unmotivated, perhaps also here the advanced season? Definitely not but was a, also only a few hours, passing responsibility of the staff possible or abgedacht, it was right from the first day pointed out.

    Great location with beautiful garden areas. Careful: whoever pebble beach not like, there is a very extensive pool areas. But a daily course to the sea, with all waves, was also with the three-year daughter a must! Extensive shops at fair prices in 400 meters and also in the 4 kilometers away chersonissos. With a rental car, better in chersonissos rented, you can very quickly the area explore, very close also very original, quiet places find. Let to booking day trips to wonderful beaches of crete definitely not too much promised! These are not much different, as' your private beach' in Cretan village! Be careful at the observation deck of the lasithi-highlands restaurant and 'museum' let and above all their children by alleged' gift' delight! Because, surprised them to be, if they then after ' free entry' in the museum pay must. Transfer airport by taxi 40.-€

    The location of the hotel is already okay, as there are no sidewalks, or pure path appropriate are it is too dangerous evenings other routes on foot walk, and then you have to stop to take a taxi. The somewhat steep sloping beach part like I personally not so good, but one has the possibility at the 5 pools a spot. The transfer time between airport and hotel is good tolerable.
