Nana Beach Hotel – Hersonissos – Reviews

Nana Beach hotel is perfect if you want to be kept busy! I visited last summer with my two children and they never stopped with lots of different activities from the hotel kids clubs. On the rare occasion when there wasn’t an activity they wanted to get involved in they were enjoying the kids only pool where they could splash around without worrying about disturbing any adults – a good point for me as a parent too!

All in all this is a fab hotel, there was a great choice of food at the restaurants and even the buffet selection was all hot and fresh! There was myself, my husband and my 5 year old in one of the standard rooms and it was a bit compact so would definitely recommend bigger groups to upgrade to the suites or family rooms but chances are you won’t even spend too much time there, you will be too busy outside like we were!

So many good points about Nana Beach and I will definitely be returning ASAP! It’s great if you want to have a family holiday which has activities for the parents as well as the kids. While my daughter was in the hotel kids club, my husband went on a scuba diving lesson which was included in our package while I visited the spa; great holiday all round!

Sunshine Village Apartments – Hersonissos – Review

To cut a long story short, we enjoyed the hotel, the apartment style rooms (didn’t use the kitchen – who would ?), the sunshine and the people. Travelling as a large group of 16 people in all. Aged 8 months to almost 80! We read some iffy reviews before we went, but well, some people are only happy when they are complaining ?! Everyone in our little gang had a great time, and we made some great friends. The staff are all friendly and the whole place is geared up to making sure you have a good time. Watching the news you get the impression it’s all doom and gloom and strikes in Greece – but that wasn’t the case in Crete. Greece still offers something special and we would definitely be happy to go back here.

Had a great holiday here at the Sunshine Village Apartments, booked through Skytours (Thompsons). Great kids club – one of the best we have experienced, the kids loved the activities especially the arts and crafts type stuff. Some people complain about the location on a hill, but the flipside is the superb views from the pool and restaurant.
