9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely rooms, very clean, we were on 5th floor right by the roof terrace which was nice place to sit. Also great breakfast.
Cons: It was a bit hard to find it by car, but once we did parking was was very close and not too expensive for middle of town.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, close to main areas of town for shopping and eating, nice rooms, nice roof terrace overlooking the Aegean
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was marvellous for walking to the important attractions. The staff couldn’t be more helpful. Our room was huge, with a double basin bathroom and a delightful shady terrace. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean (and I am fussy).
Cons: The outside street was very narrow - I wouldn’t try driving there. When the wind blows in a particular direction the jets fly overhead - however, that must affect all of the old city. I didn’t notice the planes late at night or early in the morning.
6.3 Good
Pros: Well located for ferry port and it was easy to find somewhere to eat nearby. Clean. Fast check in and check out and WiFi worked.
Cons: The property’s location meant it was noisy and very hard to sleep - it is directly below a flight path so there is the noise of planes until midnight and starting at 630am on the dot. When we stayed there were also dogs barking relentlessly for a 20 min period from just before 5am and we were woken by noise in the street at 3am too. (I am not a light sleeper...) the first room we were given (55) had a horrible smell and was on an outside terrace which was really noisy from music nearby. They moved us to 43 which had no smell but not a great start and we were still kept up with noise although we had requested a quiet room at booking. Not hotel’s fault but I would be aware... all we wanted was a good nights sleep, especially as I am five months pregnant and we had a long drive the next day, so it was not a good stay for us. Breakfast was not of best quality but was standard and ok. Whole place is a bit tired. Lastly, they didn’t ask us on check out how our stay was which was telling (bad restaurants and hotels never seem to ask, maybe because they don’t want to know...) so didn’t seem the hotel were bothered about feedback or customer experience
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Hotel was lovely close to all we wanted to see and only 5 minutes away from the port where we had to take the ferry to Santorini. Very modern and the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom facilities was excellent.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Good location, parking close, beautiful rooftop terrace, the room was very nice. I recommend the hotel.
Cons: I would have liked to be a little bit more clean in the bathroom arround the power supply and on the hair dryer cable, but ussually I am too picky.

7.9 Good
Pros: Food and drinks were ok, breakfast is better than the other meals. The restaurants with the reservation are better than the common one. Also the restaurant outside the hotel was really good too. The alcoholic drinks are non known labeled but ok to drink.
Cons: The seafront rooms are not sea front actually. You can see the sea like %5 percent when you go to the balcony. Faulty naming of these rooms at all. Not good not worth to buy them, go with the cheaper ones. They are near the sea okay but not sea front or whatever.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Food is great
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We came back Agapi Beach after 3 years, and we weren't disappointed again. The resort keeps its high standards at everything, from food to facilities. It's just perfect for traveling with kids. We will come back again.
Cons: Some of the entertainment program feels a little retro (trivia quizzes, bingo, movie nights), this has some nice charm to it, but I would expect something more suitable for 2019.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very calm place, excellent to come with small children. Has it's own beach and three pools, also has good restaurants and free bars.
Cons: I would like to have an electric kettle in my room, sugar, coffee and tea bags so I could make my own coffee in the morning without going to main restaurant.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The beach, friendly staff, the food, entertainment, the spa
Cons: Wifi in the room, bed, bathroom of the room

10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Decent room size We’ve traveled with a 2 year old boy and we received a baby cot Excelent breakfast
4.6 Okay
Pros: Buffet for dinner and breakfast was great, staff very kind.
Cons: Because the hotel parking site was full, a staff member parked our car the evening we arrived. The next morning it turned out that he had parked it in front of the hotel loading dock and the car had been damaged by someone trying to get past. It showed a big dent and scratches exactly on the spot (rear right) where a trolly would pass from the road to the sidewalk. A mere passer-by on the sidewalk could not have caused such damage. Yet the hotel refused to take any responsibility. We spent several very unpleasant hours talking to managers through the phone and ended up paying for the damages ourselves. We were only lucky that the friendly car rental service (Kydon) showed some understanding and did not charge the full amount. One would expect more from a hotel in this class.

Cons: absolutely nothing. any one who finds fault is a git!
7.9 Good
Pros: Amazing staff, everyone very welcoming; kudos to Maria, Kallia and Kallia (Spa), Vangelis (main bar), the team of the pool bar. The structure, facilities and rooms are very clean and well kept. Dinner buffet was very good! We enjoyed very much the a la carte restaurant too.
Cons: We had big problems with the Wi-Fi connection throughout the stay. We reccomend to increase the quality and variety of the breakfast menu.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Staff OK, lot of sunshine, nice garden, food OK.
Cons: Leaking aircondition into our bed, they tried to fix it but unsuccesfully and didnt change the room. One million of mosquitos, so unable to open window or door, good protection against insect is needed. Dirty sea water on the beach.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing stay in this beach hotel. It exceeded our expectations. At check-in we were upgraded to one of beachfront bungalows. Also, we got free dinner at hotel's a la carte restaurant as well as 15 min free massage each of us. They knew about our late arrival, so at the room we had some fresh food to eat. We booked all inclusive which was perfect. We liked the fact that during the day at the pool bar (10am-6pm), beside drinks and coffee, there is always fresh fruit and some snacks and deserts in case you want to grab something between meals. Also, at the pool bar you can have lunch, of course basic courses, but very nice, so basically you can have lunch in a bathing suit in case you are to lazy to go to the restaurant :) The food at the restaurant was fine and well presented, a lot of fresh cuisine. At the main building in front of the restaurant there is a bar (6pm-midnight), they make very good cocktails, very kind bar tenders. You can enjoy drink anywhere you want. All staff was amazing, extremely friendly and happy to help. A lot animation activities aqua gym, aqua dance, pilates, live music, table tennis competition, 1 hour walk into the village, etc. The bathroom and room was very clean. We slept very good, very quiet resort. We asked for less hard pillows and they immediately provided it. We rented a car through the hotel which was very simple. Ask a day before for a lunch bag to go if you are going to be away all day. We went to Elafonissi and Chania. Far away for one day excursion (total 440 km), but definitely was it worth it. The beach is sandy, not the best one, but it is ok, warm water despite the wind. Windy area so it is pleasant to stay in the sun. There are a lot of sunbeds an umbrellas everywhere. Clean beach towels every day. Great location, 10-15 minutes by car from the airport. Heraklion city as well. 3 min walk form hotel you will find a lot of shops. Thank you very much for amazing stay! We felt really good and relaxed.
Cons: Bed matrasses are hard. Dinner should be extended till 10 pm (now is from 7 to 9.15pm). Regarding the food, we did not like how they prepare meat, a lot of spices which we are not used of it.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff, the location, the gardens.
Cons: The beds were very hard and uncomfortable.
7.5 Good
Pros: The food is very really good and we had every day New options in the menu. We booked a standard bangalow but when we arrived we were upgraded to a premium one, which was bigger and much nicer.
Cons: Most of the workers in the hotel were nice and ready to help, but some of them were very unfriendly to us before we even spoke to them! We had no idea why !
4.2 Okay
Pros: - Receptionists are friendly. - Beautiful view (the garden is nice). - The weather is really good (yes I know that it does not depend on the hotel).
Cons: - Poor choice of food (for example, no even peanut butter for breakfast or packaged yogurt). - That food you can find is not tasty (croissants smell yeast, meat is too fat, sausages are terrible). - Short lunch time. - The wine is worst I have ever tasted. It's impossible to describe. It tastes like ultra cheap wine + ashes. - WiFi is not available in room (the signal is too low) only outside of room. - Room shower without a curtain. - Shampoo and soap have not been renew. - It's a bit difficult to find sunbed on the beach because guests occupy them by towels. - The sea looks a bit dirty. - Mosquitoes.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: High class hotel! The food is varied, the place is clean, the cabins are nice between plants and flowers, a large pool and a few meters from the sea. A friendly crew and a real assistant we enjoyed every moment ... A little suggestion for improvement, we came from a country that people dont eat pork so maybe put some more dishes from beef..
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very polite and kind. The location was excellent. The beach was very easy to reach. Plenty of space for parking a car. The restaurant had a good choice of food each day. For a short stay this was ok, but for more than a week it would have felt repetitive.
Cons: A bottle of water in the room each day would have been appreciated.
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff was excellent, they were very helpful and friendly! Loved the fact that our bungalow was right on the beach. The bungalow was cleaned daily, incl. mopping, bathroom cleaning of sand etc.
Cons: The breakfast was poor quality, scrambled eggs seemed to be mixed in with something else to make more of them. The coffee was terrible and juices tasted like the cheap ones from the carton boxes you get for less than a euro. Wifi was also very very poor, we barely had any in our bungalow.

Pros: Comfortable hotel near the town centre Restaurants close by and very convenient to the ferry port. No hesitation in staying here again
10.0 Excellent
Cons: Excellent in every way
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel was convenient, a few blocks uphill to center--or 1 block downhill to the sea--and a short walk along to the venetian fortress and one short block to a grocery store. The front desk was friendly, room was a decent size with fridge, good shower. Bed was too hard for me--but that's my preference alone. We didn't have one of the super-duper rooms with views of the sea--just a standard room. Buffet breakfast was good and we didn't go hungry. No complaints. I thought about renting a car to go out to Knossos and parking close to hotel--but forgot that idea as soon as I saw just how tight parking was on the street--so we took the bus to Knossos which was easy enough. That said--there is a paid public parking close by and the hotel does give you a voucher to lower the cost.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Good location near the centre and old port areas. Nice breakfast dining area outside. Friendly & helpful staff.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice location near the beach. Hotel was clean. Room with sea view.
Cons: Food and Beverage is acceptable. Can be improved.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very pleasant beach front hotel with good breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet. Rooms were simple, clean and serviceable and staff was friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Cons: The onsite parking that is advertised is a public car park where survival of the fittest is the rule. The private car park holds 2-3 cars max. You might want to avoid room #103 as it is directly next to the kitchen and quite noisy until late night.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: In general everything was as expected. The stuff is very helpful and the facilities are very clean.
Cons: Without being annoying, our room was a bit loud because it was next to the staircase.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Good food, friendly staff, lovely views.
Cons: Shower was broken.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a fantastic stay on Crete. The hotel is small but very cozy. It has a direct access to the beach, which was convenient for us with the baby. The staff is amazing and very helpful and the food was prepared delicious
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Rooms were modern. Entertainment representative was very good. Greek food options at buffet were excellent. Location on beach with mountain views was stunning. Staff were very friendly and even before we arrived sorted our big family party accommodation out by email efficiently. Swimming pool and surrounding area kept crystal clean.
Cons: Area very much given to hotels, but we expected that and hired car from car rental nearby and toured Crete for one day to get flavour of island.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great price for the offer of all inclusive.
Cons: That everything felt a little bit more underrated as the stars given to this hotel. Despite a sign signalling that no sun beds are to be reserved ... nearly all were ahead of breakfast (despite only a couple of people using them). I think it's important to have hotel house rules but they should not just be window-dressing. Every guest ought to have a right to use all of the facilities. Reserving seats or sun beds is absolutely ridiculous and staff should (as the so-called rules by the poolside state) should remove the pegs that hold towels there. Or better still, remind guests on their arrival that reserving sun loungers/beds is against house rules. Certain cultures whether it be German or British have no right to impose such archaic traditions on any other holidaymakers.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's my first ever trip to exact same summer destination twice in a row. As before, it fully met my expectation. The place is close to airport & the city, yet the beach is long and relaxing enough if you walk a few minutes any direction. The hotel's most valuable asset are the people working there. The staff at the restaurant - those you meet most often - are always friendly, quick and always ready to help. The bar team also deserves a 5*. The family rooms we stayed in were clean and comfy. Everything required was there. Cleaning raised no issues. Liked the food - didn't miss any particular kind if food. Was never hungry :) Exept for rare peak days, there were always sunbeds at the beach, though it's hard to fined >1 spare sunbed by the pool past 10am. There's small private car park for your car. Staff speak English, German and some speak French as well. A special thank you voes to the manager - Nikoletta - who's been very helpful in making some non-trivial arrangements for my family members.
Cons: Sometimes I missed the pool after 6:30 when it gets closed.

Pros: Great location easy walk to the harbour and everywhere in the old city good bed and pillows nice linens Hot water Good breakfast Very attentive staff
Cons: Only partial view of the harbour from our balcony Directly under flight path but so is everywhere in the old city
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Clean, nice, modern rooms. City center. Very very nice typical greece taverna 50 m next to the hotel. Basic but good breakfast!
Cons: The barthroom, especially shower, was very small. No view from balcony.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location close to center, clean rooms and very helpful staff!

7.9 Good
Pros: The staff were enthusiastic, friendly and correct in their advice and recommendations. Close enough to walk to everything we wanted to do/see. Good breakfast
Cons: bathroom was super tiny. Shower very small and the toilet right against the wall.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Being located in the heart of Heraklio Infinity hotel is the choice for the traveler looking for value for money combined with large rooms fitted in a modern design style. This hotel is also ideal for a longer stay
4.2 Okay
Pros: Room size was good but not very clean. Located in the city center.
Cons: The bathroom was absolutely disgusting. It was small without ventilation. The shower was moldy with a very low ceiling. And worst of all the shower head holder was broken so the water was either shooting at the floor or the ceiling. I felt cleaner before showering than I did after getting out of that shower.
7.5 Good
Pros: Staff very professional, sympathetic and helpful. Breakfast buffet is pretty ok. Rooms are clean and neat but nothing impressive.
Cons: As I paid 485 EUR for 4 nights: way overpriced. Especially because the hotel is pretty sensitive for noise. Thin ceilings, buzzing airco’s and fridges. The place seems renovated not so long ago but there is already quite some ‘wear and tear’ on doors, locks, wardrobes etc.. definitely not on par with a 120 EUR++per night. If it would be 60 -75 EUR max. I’d say it would fit. Like often in S Europe. Just eliminate 1 * and it suits better.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Only stayed one night, great position in Heraklion. Spacious room and excellent staff.

Pros: The room is fully consistent with the description and photos. It is homely cozy and comfortable. Location is simply no better. All that you may need is within walking distance. I recommend this apartment to everyone.
Cons: Price-quality ratio. In my opinion, a hotel of this level should be a little cheaper. But the location is captivating. Very comfortable. Close to the center to the sea. And generally very well located.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: This is a lovely old hotel with the most helpful and gracious staff you could find. Anything big or little, they will help with which makes foreign travel so much nicer. It is older and there is some evidence of the number of people who have enjoyed it before. The location was close to the bus, the ferry and the airport which was very convenient, but also made it a bit noisy at times, however we got around the city mostly on foot from the hotel so it worked for us. Nikos was particularly helpful for us.

Pros: Great personnel. The receptionist, Antonis was really helpful. Pope is friendly. Clean room and bed sheets. Breakfast is not bad. Pope has the toast ready before you ask for it. Location is good.
5.4 Okay
Cons: From the bedroom you can ear everything, even people taking shower in other rooms. There is no chance to have a quiet sleep since you have during the people people arriving or leaving the hotel and in the early morning like 7am you already can ear the cleaning lady! It's really noisy, I hated that. The breakfast is satisfactory but nothing compared to the other parts of the island. Heraklion, in general, is horrible as city.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location of the hotel is perfect, near the beach, supermarket, restaurants, souvenir shops, bus stop and few minutes by bus or taxi to the center of Heraklion. The staff is very helpful and kind. Adonis at the reception was very helpful and responsive to our requests and needs. He help us to book nice tours in Crete within a great tour operator Katrina. As well he help us to arrange the pick up and driving to the airport. Everything went smooth and nice. Francesca, the cleaning lady is a sweetheart, so kind and nice. The room was always clean with fresh bed linen and towels. Popi the lady in charge of breakfast was also very kind. In general we enjoy our staying in the hotel and had a super great time in Crete! We stayed for 10 days in the hotel and everyday was nice. The room was spacious, with AC, quiet with a big bed, a bit hard for my taste but comfy enough for a good sleep. Has a little kitchenet with a mini refrigerator.
Cons: I think that will be nice if the kitchenet in the bedroom can count with a coffeemaker, some dishes and cutlery, it only have glasses, cups, little dishes and teaspoons. But it is easy to solve if you request them to Adonis. The breakfast could have a little more variety, coffee was thin, and it will be nice with fresh fruit juice, instead of instant juice. But are things that can be improve. In general everything is fine and good.

Pros: The staff were happy, smiling and willing to cater to any needs/requests. The food in the restaurants was impeccable, always fresh ingredients with a good selection of Greek and international food. The packed lunches were good too. Light, nothing fancy but quite adequate. The room was cleaned everyday with fresh bed linen and towels. The beach towel service was very handy and a special thank you to the two ladies, Valentina and Ansi, at the resort's spa where we enjoyed a full body scrub and hot oil massage, foot and neck complete relaxation massage and an amazing facial lifting with natural Cretan oils and creams at a very reasonable price. Minas, the main bar barman and Vlad were also fantastic and with all the people here still remembered from one day to the next what we usually ordered to drink and where we had said we were going the evening before. Overall a very welcome relaxing week. Absolute nothing to complain about.
Cons: Not the resort's fault, but we prefer a compact sandy access to the sea. The beach is sandy but there are stones to overcome when entering the sea.

5.8 Okay
Pros: The pool, the gracious manager who transferred us to the hotel from our temporary accommodation. The barman Dimitri, who is a gentleman and a very nice man (and who makes the BEST freddo known to man.
Cons: That we arrived at the hotel to be told that we would be accommodated at another hotel ( run by the same company) for two days and then transferred to the one we booked. The temporary accommodation was many kilometers away at Gouves Bay Hotel, in a desolate windswept awful place. The streets outside this hotel are a little like a bombsite; strewn with debris and rubbish. Why anyone would want to go there is beyond me. Because of this experience, we “lost” two days of our 5 day holiday. Never again‼️ (The staff of these hotels were about the only thing that made the stay bearable).

Pros: Food was good and location was good.
Cons: We had let hotel know we were arriving a day late and they replied saying "Great see you then". When we arrived they had given our room to someone else, they offered us a downgrade room, unacceptable. We were then sent to a sister hotel, half an hour away, inferior room and furnishings, no sea view which we had paid for. After 2 nights we were then shunted back to original hotel for 2 nights, room was good but not the one I had specifically booked with glass balustrade so we could lie in bed and look at the view. The pool looked a little grubby.

So all round the hotel is a get pick while travelling through Crete.

7.1 Good
Pros: Astoria Capsis is located in the heart of Heraklion near major sites and shopping opportunities. You can easily walk to a lot of archaeological sites like the former fortress docks & harbours. There are a lot places to eat and shopping close by.
Cons: No fitness center for exercise. There weren't a lot of choice for their breakfast. Can be noisy. My room had a noticeable sway for no apparent reason, possibly the foundation of the building was not stable.

9.6 Excellent

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is ideally located - opposite the museum (well worth a visit) and within walking distance into the old town. Took about 10 minutes to walk down to the waterfront. Breakfast was good - a good mixed selection. They had an early breakfast which was ideal for catching the early ferries to other islands.
