Hotel Review

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.

Aldemar Royal Mare Thalasso Resort

"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."
