The old town was my favourite, lively family restaurants and bars. Local shops to attract tourists but not too many. New town much busier but has wonderful view over sea. A larger choice of restaurants to suit all tastes.

Hersonissos is not a place I would choose for a romantic trip. It is perfect for young party people and for family with small children. The main street is crowded and not nice but you can find everything you need. The seaside is nice with some good restaurants like Palmera, Fresh and Skorpio. Skorpio has also a beautiful beach with send and clear water. Hersonissos is the right place to visit beautiful beaches like Plaka and Voulisma for a day trip.

Beautiful city, a little too touristy for my liking but on the other hand very accomodating and nice people! Beautiful beaches, and many options for excursions, day trips and fun activities in the area. Great night life.

We spent a week at Greta Beach and explored the surrounding areas. Very good location to the beaches in Anissara. Breakfast consisted of cereal, yogurt, cheese, toast, sweet bread, boiled eggs, ham, juice, water, and coffee. Gregory and Vai are very nice men. Very accommodating. Some things the rooms need: Shower, the water runs onto the floor because of where the curtain is hung. Mattresses could be replaced. Felt the springs. The pool is nice. Air conditioning worked fine. Recommend a car at this place. Easy walk to beach. Coral Diving Center is close.

geared up for families before the season really gets going when it seems to be all about the young music going party lovers. It would be an absolute nightmare to stay at Star Beach resort in high season if you wanted peace and quiet, but perfect if a lively, noisy full on holiday 24/7 is what you are looking for
Hersonissos was the best of both worlds!
Hersonissos was the best of both worlds! It is a 20 minute drive from the centre of Heraklion with all the shopping and madness so it's easily accessible and then you have all the beaches and a more private area where you are! There is lots of restaurants with fresh fish and great food near by as well!
“Location and the facility were good enough for the price. The pool and the garden were very pretty. Location was great, 20 min from Heraklion and 3-4 min from Hersonissos. A car is needed to make the travel easy. ”
“Hercules The Host was very pleasant and helpful, great man! The hotel is very clean, nice pool but pay attention to the fact that some studios don’t have air conditioning, it might be crucial for travelers like me. Worth of every euro paid! ”
“The hotel is nice, stylish, and clean, with extremely friendly and helpful personnel. The beach is just in front of the hotel. There is a variety of food choices in the main restaurant and the food quality is very...”
“Rooms were clean, grounds were beautiful, and staff is so helpful. Location is wonderful for traveling to local sight seeing. I absolutely loved being a bit up the hill away from the chaos of the tourists.”
“This was third time to us stay in Smartline Village, stayed for three days with teenage children. Our room was like always very clean, at the very top of the hill, with sea view and with two balconies.”
“The pools are amazing you have to get the lower ground rooms to have direct access to the pool. And the fact that’s it’s adults only is great! The breakfast buffet options are endless, definitely coming back again!”
