No weather data found for [, ”Crete”, ”Georgioupolis, horizontal]
A sizeable and unassuming self contained 5-star complex with a wide selection of sports and entertainment options for adults and children. Vast pools, spacious grounds and a wide stretch of sandy beach offer various options for relaxation, along with a well equipped spa.
Original accommodation blocks appear dated but benefit from a beachside location with water sports, although sunbeds incur an extra charge.
Suitable for all age groups, where space and choice of amenities is more important than refined sophistication. Would also suit those with small children or mobility problems as grounds are flat and a mini train provides onsite transport.
The main building is backed by various modern blocks in a village style hosting bungalows and suites. Painted in pastel colours with stonework features and arches. Reasonably sized balconies are wooden fronted, some with overhead wooden trellising. The original blocks on the beach front are slightly older in appearance, with a similar design apart from the stonework.
