Resting on Crete’s north coast, the Peninsula Resort & Spa boasts superb panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea and offers a wide range of modern facilities, making it a prefect place of leisure for both couples and families who are after a holiday on one of Greece’s most famous islands.

The Peninsula Resort & Spa has 250 rooms, fully equipped with air-conditioning, satellite TV, and fridge. Both the double and triple rooms offer views of either the gorgeous blue sea or the lovely green mountains, so you can never go wrong whatever you opt for! The hotel also has spacious family rooms which are fully fitted with 2 double beds (or 1 double and two singles), balcony, patio, telephone, radio, satellite channels, air conditioning, hairdryer, bathroom, refrigerator, and electric kettle. All the rooms are furnished in a decidedly Cretan style, allowing the guests to fully immerse in the island’s traditional atmosphere.

The splendid blue Mediterranean Sea is almost a part of the hotel – not only can you stay in a room with a sea view, but you are also bound to admire the gorgeousness of the crystal waters while you are having a meal! Breakfast, lunch or dinner – the buffet style restaurant offers you a blue backdrop, complimenting your setting and elevating your holiday experience even a step further. For your convenience, the Peninsula Resort & Spa also has 2 outdoor and 1 indoor swimming pools, 2 children’s pools, 2 tennis courts, 1 multi-use court, a children’s mini club and playground, 2 ping-pong tables and billiards. If this is not enough and you are a restless traveller, the resort’s convenient central location also means that there is an abundance of well-known sites relatively close by. A car rental is easily arranged from the hotel and you can go explore Knossos Palace, Ancient Knossos, the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, Chania Old Town and Harbour, and much more.

A great option for families, couples, or even groups of friends, the Peninsula Resort & Spa is a welcome retreat in the midst of lively Crete.
