Enjoy a five-star Crete beach escape with an all-inclusive stay at a luxurious Heraklion resort, including all travel

The five-star Aldemar Knossos Royal on the coast of Crete has got it down when it comes to beach luxury. Fringed by a soft stretch of white sand, which is lapped by the warm waters of the Aegean Sea, it's pretty much the ideal location for a week of eating fresh food, swimming and soaking up some Greek sunshine.

If you fancy a little more action, this resort has all the options for an active adventure: splash down the waterslide, win a game of tennis, squash or mini-golf, take cookery or dancing lessons and try your hand at diving. On the dining front, the fantastic Fontana Amorosa restaurant excels in healthy gourmet cuisine, as it serves Mediterranean dishes made with completely natural ingredients, while fresh seafood is on hand at the Beach Bar restaurant. With all this, it's no wonder this all-round crowd-pleaser has scooped up a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Even the grumpiest morning person will love waking up here, where you can step out onto your private balcony or veranda and be faced with calming oceanfront views. These 25-square-metre VIP Sea Front rooms have plenty of space and are decorated with understated style and elegance.

A handful of restaurants are ready to cater to your every need: head to Fontana Amorosa if you're up for some healthy gourmet food, try Villas or Artemis restaurants for inspired and classic meals, or get your fill of excellent seafood at the beach bar restaurant. Don't miss out on lobster night, which takes place on Tuesdays at Fontana Amorosa.

Please note that some themed nights, restaurants, premium meals and branded drinks are not included in your all-inclusive basis and will incur a supplementary charge.


The Aldemar Knossos Royal is on the ancient Greek island of Crete, just a short drive from the pretty town of Hersonissos. Located right on the pristine beach, the hotel provides deck chairs and umbrellas and there's a water sports centre if you fancy it. You'll also find two tennis courts, a fitness centre, mini golf, a squash court and a games room. You can also take cooking lessons and each evening you'll stumble across light entertainment put on by the friendly staff.
