Terrible hotel. Owner is always with angry face and let himself to scream on guests. Room cleaning is disgusting, sometimes they don't change towels even if you left it on the floor. There is always a smell from toilet.
Arrived from airport via hire car to the village. Hire car worth getting as you may wish to get food from supermarkets and sight see. Not imperative - but taxi to & from airport for family of five would have been a fifth of car hire anyway.
Our apartment was self catering (although they obviously do breakfast and other quality food offerings), clean & had air-con in bedrooms. Basic kitchenette was functional with full size fridge. Maid service with fresh sheets every 4 days, and towels every two. Rubbish removed and loo roll replaced. Floor mopped and beds made on towel change over.
Swimming pool clean, nice bar area, not too busy even when hotel was full.
The couple who ran the business were professional, kind, courteous and attentive. They were approachable and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Really can't thank them enough for their welcome.
We went on several trips as we like to alternate between pool days & sight seeing with our 3 kids.
Recommend Spinalonga, Lasithi Plateau (turn right at T junction as you approach plateau and grab coffee at flower laden taverna on left - two km from the cave of Zeus) worth a visit. Take trainers - it's a 1km plod up a rocky path. We also made it to the water park - Aquaplus - which was good to do - but go later (3pm) as there is only so long one can splash about for...
Lots of great restaurants in village - Piscopiano. Kostas; Litchnos; Patricko and Aposperida were our favourite - service and food grea
Very nice hotel in a central location of Herssonisos which is great for a few nice bars and shops and not too far away (as other potentially nicer hotels are, but then require cabs to get in to town and back out again).
Rooms are just big enough for two, but your there for the sun not the room most of the time, and the breakfast area has a nice sea view and balcony to enjoy the hotels private beach.
Good value for money hotel in a great location.
"NICE HOTEL, EXCELLENT SERVICE, DIFFICULT TO FIND AT NIGHT"
THE HOTEL IS VERY NICE AND HAS EXCELLENT FACILITIES INCLUDING ACCESS TO THE BEACH.
BREAKFAST WAS GOOD, LUNCH WAS DISAPPOINTING.
IT WAS DIFFICULT TO FIND THE HOTEL AT NIGHT AND THE HOTEL IS ABOUT 40 TO 40 MINUTES FROM THE AIRPORT.
AT THE END OF THE SEASON (OCTOBER) SOME OF THE HOTEL FACILITIES ARE NOT FUNCTIONAL.

Two studio rooms side by side for 2 adults and 2 children. absolutely ideal. Lovely choice of eating places in local Tavernas. A long walk down to the beach, but all downhill and got a taxi back. Visited a reptile recue centre which everyone enjoyed, the owners informative and really delightful.Everyone we met in Crete were friendly and welcoming. My Grand-daughter had an ear infection and the local medical centre diagnosed the problem, took a no nonsense approach and gave her penicillen, and followed her up with 3 further appointments. Certainly not the medical help we have been used to.
Holiday village set in landscaped gardens with panoramic sea views, situated one kilometre from the beach and 1.5 kilometres …More
Had a great week at the Anthousa.
Food very good, service superb, all inclusive package genuine. On a good beach, very good room, pools. Adult pool full of kids.
15 Euro deposit for each beach towel. Reduced the Sun bed fiasco as people don't risk losing towel, but many days same old problem where sun beds bagged all day but not used.
Surrounding area down market, nothing Greek, just streets of Irish bars and holiday tat shops selling stuff for twice the price as at home,
Everything outside hotel very expensive due to exchange rate.
Hotel deteriorated since our last visit, looks as though problems don't get fixed.
Beach bar sitting area looks as though it was damaged in the winter and only half repaired.
Tennis court, alongside stinking open sewer, astro turf sunk in one hole 4 inches deep, guanteed damaged ankle.
Staff great, Duty / assistant manager very kind when we asked to pay for a guest to visit for a day.
Be aware if you don't book a sea or side sea view you may end up in Annex across the the road which would be very disappointing especially if you have kids.
Be happy to go back.
