Didn't like the nickle and dime aspect of resort eg $5 deposit for towels, no bottled water etc.... . Also buffet was not great but in fairbess it was only 10 Euros so perhaps not a bad value

👍👍
I booked a last minute stay at Albatros to extend my stay in Crete. It was the best decision! This property has everything you need. Amazing and helpful staff, plentiful buffets, 2 swimming pools, pool bar and ice cream shop (gourmet gelato for only 2€), evening activities and AMAZING spa with great deals! I built my own 90 minute spa package for 60€ (hydrotherapy, back massage & facial). The resort is very close to the beach and boardwalk as well. I loved every minute of my time at Albatros. No problems at all.

Excellent stay, but do NOT book a standard room!
Whatever you do, do NOT book a standard room or you will be very disappointed. The hotel is split into a few buildings and their standard rooms are in the old part of the hotel. We were there for the 1st night and got very upset with the overall standard of the room. It was clean, but think 1980s style of dark furniture, yellow AC unit which barely worked, crappy fridge, etc. Based on the pictures, this is not what I was expecting when I booked the room. Luckily, the lovely staff at reception were able to give us an upgrade for the 2nd night so we got moved to the nice part of the hotel: it felt like a different world! I finally understood why the hotel was rated 4-5* because the standard rooms barely scraped a 2*. Breakfast and dinner were included which was great seeing the variety of food on offer. What I definitely cannot fault is the staff working there. Every single person we came in contact with was very professional, friendly and willing to help. We will come back here but we will book a superior room from the get-go.

Great holiday here
The hotel staff could not have been any more friendly and helpful. Location is great we could hear the waves from our lovely big balcony, the buffet breakfast was full of choice. There was a better beach heading right 8 minutes away, ours was rather rocky near the waters edge. Entertainment great. Only niggle was the bed mattresses were too hard for us but then again we didn’t report it so perhaps something would have been done. Rooms were very clean

Hotel with tired main building but with nice staff
Hotel has 3 building - 1 old and 2 new. Old one is very very tired. I stayed there and wasn't happy even my standart room was upgraded to juniour suite. But staff in the gotel was nice as well as the food in main restaurant. The whole area of Hersonnisos is touristic hell - thoudans hotels and touristic shops, no beach, no pleasant landscape. Never come back there!
