When it comes to the Greek Islands, everywhere you turn there's a stunning hotel. The island of Crete is no different, and hotels in Crete vary from the simple self-catering affair for an adventurous holiday, all the way up to a 5-star all-inclusive resort with an infinity pool and cocktails on tap.
The largest of all the Greek Islands and the most southern, Crete has a wealth of hotels to offer which provide a base to explore this diverse island. With over 5,000 years of history, endless glittering coastlines and a gorgeous mountainous interior, we're not sure why you haven't booked a Crete hotel yet.
Each resort in Crete offers something different. The hotels will usually match the atmosphere of their surroundings. For example, for family holidays and hotels in Crete, we recommend Chania or Hersonissos. For groups of friends looking to party, it's absolutely Malia, where you can get a late-deal self-catering hotel for an extremely affordable cost. For all-inclusive exclusivity and a generous helping of romance, the resorts of Elounda, Aghios Nikolaos and Agia Pelagia all offer something for even the most discerning couples.
So whether your looking for something simple, or you would prefer an all-inclusive hotel in Crete, loveholidays can help you book that dream escape.
