Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have just come back from Krini Beach Hotel. The staff were all excellent. Customer service was very good from cleaning, cooking buffets and bar staff as well as the maintenance staff. We were all inclusive and the food was of a good standard and we ate three times a day. There was all inclusive drinks from 10 to 2200 on house drinks / cocktails on a set menu. And this was very good and kept our costs down.
We were the only Brits at that time but that suits us. Some of the Germans and French guests made unnecessary comments on the temp of food or asking for something else. They must have got mixed up and thought they were entitled to an al a carte menu . The food was good and the chef kept filing up the trays with fresh food.
There were plenty of sunbeds and nice access to the beach. That was superb.
Around bar area they had live musicians and Greek dancing was fantastic.
I definitely will be back in next couple of years.

I don’t write reviews very often but have to say that this place is fantastic. Warm and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. Tentative staff, brilliant location amongst the locals and away from touristic prices yet only a 25 min bus ride into the city at €1.60.
We discovered this place by accident and found our base to explore the island. I would definitely just cat a flight to Chania, €1.60 bus ride to here and just book my own hotel and avoid all the package holidays. Directly on the beach, good food and plenty to drink. If you want a good chill place as a base to go explore, this is the place for you!

Nestled next to a Cretan beach, this enchanting hotel offers an authentic hospitality experience that captures the essence of the island's rich culture. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted by staff whose warmth and attention truly reflected the famous Cretan hospitality.
The hotel manager is an embodiment of professionalism and warmth. Always their genuine interest in ensuring the comfort of each guest was evident in the seamless check-in process and their willingness to accommodate any special requests.

The food in the hotel restaurant was Cretan flavors very enjoyable The menu presented a delightful mix of traditional and modern dishes, all prepared with the freshest local ingredients. Every meal was a celebration of Cretan gastronomy..

The bar, a hidden gem within the hotel, was a haven for cocktail lovers. The mixologist's creativity shone through the unique concoctions that paid homage to local ingredients and flavors. Whether sipping a refreshing cocktail by the pool or enjoying an evening drink at the bar, each concoction was a masterful combination of flavor and innovation.

I've spent a week at Krini Beach Hotel in Sfakaki from 26 June till 02 July. The hotel is situated right on the beach, the rooms are nice and clean, the staff is nice and helpful. I can wholehearteadly recommend it to those people who want to relax in a peaceful area. The internet connection was not great but anyway I was on a vacation.

Krini Beach Hotel definitely met my expectations! If you want to avoid crowds and are looking for a quite, beautiful hotel near the seaside with excellent staff then this is the right place. Food is different every day with delicious deserts. Beach bar is by the beatutiful beach with breathtaking sunsets. Excellent drinks served by always friendly staff. I recommend this beautiful place and I hope one day I will visit it again 🧡

I enjoyed staying at this hotel. It is quiet and peaceful here, if you want to relax, then this is the place. Not very diverse cuisine, but very tasty. The staff is attentive and friendly. I would like to update the hotel rooms a little. In general, I liked everything, I will happily rest here again.

Great hotel if you want a relaxing holiday. There are now 60 rooms. The hotel works mainly on the basis of 'all inclusive' and the guests are mostly Dutch and Belgiums.
Located on the Sfakaki beach, 12 km east of Rethymnon. Airport Heraklion 72 km to the west.
There is a daily bus service to Rethymnon and Adelianos Kampos, (1,50euro). Taxi around 5-10 euro, (always worth haggling over the fare)
The hotel is ideal for making excursions (pick-up at bus stop) cycle tours, jeep safari, walks etc.
Food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) is served as buffet, good selection but could serve more authentic Greek food.
All local drinks, wines and beers are included in the all in and
coffee, tea, cake, ice-cream are served free between 15.00 and 17.00 in the bar.
The rooms are clean, we had a bath and shower (over bath).
The personnel are very friendly and accomodating.
Beach towels are available for free (10euro deposit)
Extra's: airco (4euro per day) and in room safebox ( 2 euro per day)

Добрый день. Лежаки бесплатные НО традиционного пляжа на песочке у моря у отеля нет. Лежаки есть на деревянной террасе которая расположена между зоной бара и пляжем. Лежаков на террасе не много, и они всегда были заняты полотенцами. То есть для отеля при его полном заселении этого количества этого явно не достаточно. Все кому не достался лежак на террасе у пляжа занимают лежаки у бассейна и ходят к морю и обратно. В этом отеле вы не увидите пляжа на котором на песке расположены лежаки и зонтики. Да они бесплатные но на пляже их нет а на террасе их мало.
