With a strong Aegean element in its architecture, the 4-star hotel Knossos Beach is located very near Heraklion and just 10 minutes away from the airport. It is a beautiful place, perfect for peace and quiet, and for family holidays. Its location is also quite convenient as it is in the middle of the island.

Built like a Cretan village, the accommodation is spread across a large area. All the bungalows and suites are detached, which gives guaranteed privacy. The verandas and gardens are perfect for relaxing while sipping your drink at sunset.

The mini club is ideal for your children. All the pools are salt water. The Swell restaurant operates on an a la carte basis and is a popular choice among locals. The menu and creativity of the chef will not go unnoticed.

Families should know

  • Because of its proximity to the airport, you will definitely notice the noise of the planes taking off/ landing. At first the noise might seem annoying but after the first day or so you will get used to it
  • At the reception of the Swell restaurant and by the beach, there is a free Wi-Fi connection. In all remaining areas, you have to pay for internet access
  • You need to reserve the sunbeds at the beach (additional cost)
  • Moving around with buggies is challenging due to the stairs from the rooms to the beach
  • The all inclusive package might seem a bit inadequate due to its limited variety
  • Although the family rooms have recently been refurbished, they are located further away from the beach
  • The village of Kokkini that is located nearby offers a variety of food and drink options; however, it is by no means picturesque
  • The standard rooms need refurbishment
  • The rooms next to the pool are the noisiest
  • Rent high quality baby and toddler equipment such as baby monitors, bottle & food warmers, bouncing chairs, play gyms, baby baths and travel cots through our partner My Baby in Greece

Other parents say...

  • The hotel offers you a very warm and cosy family environment. Its size definitely contributes to this (it has only 120 rooms).

  • All of the staff are really friendly and the service is great. They seem to love the hotel and their job and this is noticed through their manners.

  • What we loved about Knossos beach was that it offered a plethora of wonderful activities. The staff were amazingly polite and discrete.

  • Having two young kids, I was really grateful that we arrived at the hotel so quickly from the airport. Nobody really wants to deal with two over-tired kids after a long flight.

  • The fact that Heraklion is located only 15-20 minutes from the hotel helped us to discover many of its beauties. Transport was regular and the bus station is right next to the hotel. In a week we swam and relaxed as much as we had wished to. We also walked around the market and of course we visited the amazing Knossos.

  • We selected a Junior Suite that was simply amazing. Spacious, with an indoor and outdoor shower and a lot of extra privileges (including free sunbed at the beach, meal from the chef and free beach towels). The extra charge was really worth it!
