Aldemar Royal Mare Village and Thalasso Anissaras (Crete), Greece

“A vast contemporary beach resort with all the trimmings, lush grounds, four pools and private beach area. Rooms mirror the outdoors, blue and breezy, some suites come with terraces and pools. Enjoy the many dining options, good spa and lots of activities - tennis, water sports and nearby nightlife.”

“This is, unashamedly, a hotel for those who like to live large. With almost 400 rooms and suites, it spreads over lush grounds with three outdoor pools, a heated indoor pool, plus 24 private villa pools. The Thalassotherapy centre is a big draw. A host of activities, too, including all the usual watersports and a professional-standard tennis club with seven clay courts. The overall design theme is low-rise mock-Minoan, and the rooms are unfussily furnished and neutrally decorated. The somewhat raucous nightlife of Hersonissos and Malia is nearby.”

They say

“The Royal Mare Village is an exciting holiday destination located at the heart of the Mediterranean in a realm of myths and stories. There are so many ways to relax at this beautiful community surrounded by cooling water and verdant gardens. Chill out in the comfort of your well-appointed room, enjoy the sparkling blue waters of the sea, treat yourself at the world’s finest thalassotherapy centre, discover the secrets of Cretan cuisine and embrace an enchanting summer full of traditional Cretan hospitality.”

"Once beyond the ornate reception area, you’ll find a mock Mediterranean village - there's even a central clock-tower, and birdsong in the mature landscaping."
