We arrived late and was immediately taken to the terrace for some food and a bottle of water, rooms are basic but clean, good shower, uncomfortable bed. Air con is not inc however we didn’t need it. Food was a bit hit and miss , but you can always find something edible. The all inclusive drinks were a bit of a let down, beer, wine, brandy, raki or ouzo… everything else you pay for. Very basic day and evening entertainment, however we still had fun and the guy tries his best. Pools are nice and clean, however don’t be fooled by the pool bar, that did not open once all week. This hotel could be sooo much better, however we got what we paid for. Beach is lovely, with great sunsets and plenty of lovely restaurants to choose from. Can recommend the island bar and restaurant: Biggest disappointment for me was, immediately after we left the hotel, we discovered that we had left my daughters beloved teddy bear, I have on many occasions contacted the hotel, however they have failed to reply to me even once .. for a budget holiday, you can’t go wrong …

This is my families 1st visit to Crete , we stayed at lyda hotel , and wow , after the negative reviews we were nervous but we need not have been , lyda hotel is lovely, the hosts are wonderful, they can not do enough for you , the grounds are well kept , rooms are spacious and cleaned daily , the food is fine , always something for everyone. Located just 10 min stroll to the beach and within a short distance to many attractions, lyda hotel is perfect, my children and ourselves loved it and will definitely be back .

A weeks stay at club Lyda We found the hotel to be ok for a budget hotel, even tho after speaking to other guest not everyone payed budget price! Rooms are extremely basic especially the bathrooms tv didn’t work for 4 days after repair only got one English rolling news channel Air conditioning was an extra 7 euro per day! Lots of mosquitoes in the rooms Food was ok, breakfast was good eggs were great, plenty of choices,juices croissants / the best meal in my opinion snacks at 11.30 were a joke to be honest it one one type of pastry per day usually mini apple pie or strudel only on one day was there cheese, could be improved greatly! Tea coffee 24 hours Lunch and dinner were ok but nothing special but you won’t starve! All inclusive drinks were poor brandy ouzo beer wine. no vodka or gin or rum!! Soft drink were ok Hotel was located quite far from the main resort it’s a 25 min walk to beach down hill crossing a main very busy road The hotel does provide a bus service 4 times a day, but not really anywhere to stroll to One maybe two other apartments near hotel with small tavernas also a shop but apart from that middle of nowhere! Staff were nice and friendly apart from one maybe two, Manager was firm but fair and a very nice lady , we wasn’t happy with our room after two days of us being very persistent we did eventually get moved to a slightly better block and room! Newer rooms are 500s and 200s Pool areas are nice and clean also you could find a sun lounger easily most days. We had a nice budget holiday for the money we paid I think the staff work incredibly hard to make a pleasant holiday for everyone. If you are looking for a luxury holiday in resort by the beach this is not for you!

We arrived at 11pm to be fair they gave us chicken and rice and bottle of water. But when asked for coke they charged as we missed all inclusive. When at reception we had to pay €2 per day for safe which is ok but €7 per day for aircon when u have 2 rooms it adds up. Rooms are very basic with a fridge and hairdryer beds are like sleeping on rocks. Don’t think any off us has had a good nights sleep. Food is basic if you like same food each day then your ok but if your kids are fussy you’ll need extra money to eat out. Which we ended up doing. Last 2 days we’ve had to ring reception due to having no hot water 1st day to be told had to wait 2.5 hours for maintenance to come back. So 7/8pm then again day after so ended up having a cold shower as twice we rang down to reception and after waiting 2.5 hours and nothing gave up and jumped in. Then went down on way out. To be told another hour which is not on. Pool is ok don’t need to rush up for loungers and 3 pools. Spa do very good massages. All in all I wouldn’t be coming back to hotel lots of people checked in and out same day
