    Overall, we really relaxed and enjoyed your hotel. Panos at the pool bar was an exellent help and was very professional. The young cook I think his name was Christos? Not sure( he was working on july 24th for evening food), his food was exceptional! We did unfortunately , have a problem with your cleaning staff. I understand that the cleaners work extremely hard and have a large workload. I think that a system may need to be in place that other hotels use. Such as a tag outside the room , to say ' do not disturb, or do not clean my room, or please clean my room. So, it is clear to both the cleaning staff and your guests. This would eliminate any mis communication for everyone. Thankyou. Mrs Rebekah Kritikos

    The rooms are really good, we booked the superior family room and it was huge with plenty of space for us and our 3 children. The rooms are serviced daily and the meals are good as well. We enjoyed breakfast and most dinners here (buffet style) and it is excellent value at 5 euro for breakfast and 10 euro for dinner (half price for children too!). Would highly recommend a stay at Star beach village, Crete is beautiful and we would love to come back!! There is also an on site spa and beauty rooms which were lovely, definitely worth the splurge!

    Some of the equipment near the beach pool and playground is a bit old and needs replacing. Swim in the top Dionysos Pool Bar as its much nicer with a newer playground.

    Because we booked in low season, we got a good price for what normally would be a luxury resort. The rooms were big, the water was hot and the big pool was clean.

    The desk staff was very rude and made us feel like we didn't belong. We were given a room right above the horse stalls with absolutely no view even though the hotel was about 3 quarters empty. The cleaning staff waited until 2pm when we came back and started cooking to ask if we wanted the room cleaned...of course we said no not at that time. But they didn't even come back to get the garbage. The kid's pool was dirty, most of the restaurants were closed, the jacuzzi was cold, the lazy river was closed, the sauna cost 8 euro, and the WIFI cost 3 euro per hour, and the dishes were cracked in the room and one glass actually cut my boyfriend when he was washing it. Finally, every night around 8pm, they turned the lobby into a kids party room which was so loud we couldn't relax in our room. If any of these things were explained in the booking page (eg. cold pool, sauna extra...) we wouldn't have expected it but when you book a room for the facilities and they don't exist, what was the point?

    The big size of the rooms, the see view.

    Our room was clean and spacious. We had a coffeepot, hot water pot, microwave, refrigerator, hot plate, hair dryer, and television. There were many pools to choose from, a children's playground, and options for breakfast and dinner buffet. Has a small grocery store next to the lobby which was very convenient. Quick drive into town for shopping or an evening walk. Very yummy restaurant - "No Name Restaurant" within a 5 minute walk. great brick oven pizza and chicken gyro plate!!!

    The restaurant/cafe prices were fairly expensive, but typical for vacation spots. It was fairly difficult to find because there aren't many signs indicating its location. We were not able to connect to the internet from our room.

    Very good

    Close to see, very nice sandy beach, nice & clean pool area, lot of different facilities to choose, very reasonable priced and reach breakfast and dinner buffet, clean and fresh rooms, polite stuff

    Stuff is very polite but cannot take any initiative thanks to very bad organization routines and a very rigid top-down management. They couldn't see which room I have booked on and we get first the much smaller one and with lower standard. Than we have to change that I.E. move all luggages to the another right one. It is Ok mistakes happens but why I had to argue in 15 minutes about something we already paid for. They haven't notice our deposit (10euro) for remote control so they have been called around, in the 20min to check if we did pay it or not during our check out. Hotel is absolutely not for the family holiday in high season ‘cause of the many parting college youngsters I.E. it is very noisy and we have been awaked couple of times early in the morning ‘cause of the fire alarm caused of the smoking parting youth. They used to play beach tennis in hotels children pool!?
