Delightful hotel with great buffet food, stunning location on cliff top near to small public beach.
Drinks OK and full bottles of wine available at evening meal as opposed to by the glass, although quality of cocktails was mediocre.
Room very nice and modern although mattress and Air con were not to the same standard, mattress thin and hard and A/C just about managed to keep the room bearable through the night.
Nice hotel built onto the cliff,with three pools and a small sandy beach.It had a good size,comfortable rooms with great views.Bathroom was quite dated but clean,with lovely toiletries provided so there was no need to bring anything.It had a main restaurant,where breakfast and dinner was served and A la carte restaurant that you could book once (highly recommend it).Main restaurant had a great choice of fresh fruit,salads,grilled meats,fish,olives and cheese for people like me,who don't eat chips and spaghetti on holiday.However drinks choice was a let down-no fresh juices at the restaurant,just those sugary mixers,and you had to pay for one at the bar!Also they charged for international drinks and wine and we had to pay for drinks after 11pm!Facilities were good.Three pools to choose from,two of them quiet ones and one with usual entertainment.Beach was small but very clean and lovely.There were three bars too,one of them at the beach.Three tennis courts were available too.Service of staff was ok,except Despina at the main restaurant and Sofia at the beach bar,who were fantastic!Always smiling and friendly but quick.As hotel is built on a cliff it might not be suitable for elderly people or people with very small children as there are steep hills and lots of stairs to take to go from rooms to reception and beach.However there is a free shuttle bus going up and down every 15 min or so that many people used.

Hotel was clean and welcoming. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Two beaches within easy distance and a larger beach and village about a mile away with plenty of bars and restaurants. Local service buses into Heraklion depart from the hotel door - cheap and run on time. We were half board and ate at the hotel in the evenings. The food was good, served buffet style with plenty of choice. Our room was a good size with a nice size balcony.
hen holidaying in Greece we require basic but clean accommodation in an area which is more Greek than touristic. The Belvedere fitted this bill perfectly and being situated 30 minutes form Heraklion was an ideal base to explore Crete. Agia Pelagia itself was not overrun with tourists,boasted a pleasant, safe beach, not big enough to be over exploited and had a number of very acceptable restaurants and bars nearby. During our stay 2 of these put on excellent Cretan live music.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

This is a great hotel, we were given a warm welcome by all the staff and immediately made to feel right at home. The views are incredible and it's only a short walk to the wonderful beaches you can see from your bedroom window. Each day the chef prepares a special local dish, we ate at the hotel most nights and were never disappointed. We're already planning our next trip :-)
"Very nice apartment, remarkable views, up in heaven"
We were agreably surprised to find a beautiful apartment with spectacular views in Ayia Pelagia. The owner is very nice, will help you with whatever you need. I called it in heaven because you have to drive up the mountain on what looks like a single road but it is a two way road that is very steep. If you have a fear of heights, you won't be able to drive up nor down. Also lots of cats in the area but if you don't want them, they will not come back. We stayed a week, loved it there. Everything is chosen with good taste. Very good price for the quality of accomodation. There are several grocery stores down on the beach and good restaurants too. Lovely place. 9/10
This hotel is in an amazing location with beautiful views. The food was good and we enjoyed every minute we were there. The two beaches near by are wonderful but not quite as close as stated but not too far away and worth the trip. I was there with a friend and the hotel catered for all groups of people; families, couples etc... Maybe not lads or girlie holiday makers looking for mad nights out though-too quiet for that which was perfect for our "get away from it all " holiday.
Built on a sloping hill, this All-Inclusive hotel complex overlooks the bay of Agia Pelagia, just 600 meters from the beach …More
Tucked away off the main road 20 kilometres west of Heraklion, low-key Agia Pelagia is built into a hillside above a sheltered bay. It offers a decent choice of mid-range hotels and apartments, most of which have sea views. The sandy main beach curves around the bay and is overlooked by tavernas and cafes. It offers sunloungers and good water sports facilities. Nearby, several more bays have smaller, less equipped beaches.
