★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Crete”, ”Malia”, horizontal]
An ideal family hotel due to its beach location and facilities, including pools with children’s slides and playground.
There are numerous bars and several snack bar choices with a separate restaurant for those on half-board and those on all inclusive.
Interior areas are rather bland with dated furnishings and, with a few exceptions, the buildings are plain-looking and tired.
Comprised of several buildings in a mixture of styles and sizes. The original roughcast, mustard-coloured buildings have arched concrete-fronted balconies, some of which are compact in size.
Newer blocks at the front are white and lemon with reasonably sized balconies, many with a side sea view. There are also bungalow blocks amongst the pools. The property next door is a more attractive white building, with wooden shutters and doors and spacious balconies.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
Generally plain throughout with old fashioned furnishings. The marble reception leads to the main bar which has a spacious seating area with regimental rows of black and green seating, and some internet terminals at the rear, but no character.
The 2 main restaurants are bright with windows along one wall and are practically identical with simple wooden dining sets.
Greenery is limited to trees at the entrance, surrounding hedges and a few flowerbeds. The pool areas are surrounded by concrete and a patch of lawn, and lead directly onto the sandy beach which also features mini football and volleyball.
The 4 pools have walk-in entry for easy access and 2 feature children’s slides. Sunbeds are limited but there is an abundance of sunbathing space on the beach.
2 beach bars and 2 pool bars have shading over the white plastic seating, are spacious and offer a games and TV area.
Area Type: Phaedra Beach Hotel is located in a quiet area on the outskirts of the resort directly on the beach. There are a few tavernas and mini markets in the vicinity, with a wider choice of bars, restaurants and shops in the resort centre 2km away.
