Our original Sensatori property brings you everything from sports to spa treatments with a touch of classic Greek style.
The first Sensatori resort, this place paved the way for all the others. The luxurious rooms here range from twins and doubles to family rooms and suites, and most are available with sea views, private pools or swim-up entrances.
Where Sensatori Resort Crete really excels is in the entertainment. It’s the best you’ll find at any Thomson hotel, spanning adults-only comedy nights, shows with West End sparkle, and laid-back live music.
There are seven stylish restaurants showcasing the A to Z of dishes, from stone-grilled steak to Thai delicacies. For children, new wave play comes courtesy of the Crazy Kitchen, Silly Science Lab and water-soaking Sprayground. Read more ››

Good holiday but expected more in view of cost
Good holiday and hotel generally good. Not sure vfm however and have a few pointers based on other experiences and spend. We are a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 5 and 7 in a family room. Great size room with divider. Hotel is showing age and room design, furniture and colour makes them look older than they are. Complete lack of storage space in room. Watch sharp corners on furniture. Bathroom very tired and not 5*. There are lots of signs of hotel decor being tired e.g. pool beds amongst many other things. This is not an all inclusive hotel in true sense and I wouldn't do again here. It's full board with drinks package not all inclusive. Food great and lots of choice. Al a carte great but prices astronomical and not worth it. Staff great but older bar staff miserable. Bar service very slow. Minor ques for buffet restaurant despite lots of space. Full boarders in no rush as free drink at mealtimes. Beach no good for young kids at all. Kids clubs etc excellent and well run. Main evening entertainment adult focused and solely singing based . Brought in professonals good but resort team unimaginitive and average most night (rock night especially - 45 minutes of shouting). Would have a liked a bit more family fun here and at pools in daytime. Boardwalk theatre is packed and cramped and hot. Manager introduction night tedious and needs drastic shortening. Terrace bar lovely and airy. Plenty of pool space and very relaxing but found cleanliness levels here very dissapointing. Drinks not cleared and lots of dead floating insects etc. Towel situation a joke. Splash park good quality and a great distraction but a noisy sun trap at back of hotely, but fair enough. Middle shallow kids pool the worst. Thai restaurant an eyesore, dirty and blocks any breeze. Adults only get the best located pools and some special treatments and better service and more choice of restaurants. Generally if full board and adult only then I can see this is a great hotel. For a family on all inclusive we've had much better for less. We expected standards to be better given very high family price and felt a bit hard done by a few of the points above. Still had a great time.More

Just returned from a week in this resort for a mid August break with our grown up family of 6. We all loved it. Excellent design which meant that those families with small children were housed and entertained nearer the children's pools and play areas, which left the "adults only" areas quiet and calm. We ate in the restaurants which were included in the fully inclusive package at all times as the food was excellent. Only criticism is that the main restaurant could be quite noisy at certain times, but overall the holiday was marvellous. Perhaps a dance floor on the Boardwalk would have added to our enjoyment. We will definitely return.More

I found the wifi in the hotel not very good you can only get wifi in and around the reception and when you do get it, it cuts out regularly. You get a much better service from the bar across the road which I find strange.More
Amazing! Can't wait to go back!
From the second we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with such a lovely welcome. The staff and hotel are incredible, it was fantastic. Our room was large, clean and had everything and more you could need. The food was very nice too, the aroma steak grill being the highlight! We got engaged on this holiday, and staying at the sensatori hotel really made it feel special. We will definitely be returning to the sensatori hotels again!More

Great holiday .... Ignore the moaners bla bla bla
Visited for one week on full board plus with my boyfriend in mid august. Paid just over Â£900pp but that included a late room till 6pm and parking at the airport. Positive points: - Spoilt for choice with food in my opinion for breakfast lunch and dinner. Choice of different restaurants, as well as different themes in the main restaurant. Puddings very nice too, I don't usually enjoy desserts abroad! - I don't get people complaining about lack of a snack bar, you could eat as late as 10.15am then have lunch at 12.30 if you wanted, whoever can't wait like 2 hours for their next meal needs to sort themselves out! Plus you could take a pancake or a piece fruit out of breakfast for a snack later if you needed. - The couple of restaurants which required a payment were heavily discounted which made things more affordable too. However if you chose to eat in the free ones all the time then I don't think you would be bored, in my opinion anyway. Tex Mex restaurant was a favourite but it depends what your into, it was really nice at lunch time as well, you could choose off a menu, things such as burritos, fajitas, bacon burgers etc. Red saffron was the adult only restaurant which was OK we went and it happened to be seafood night so not for me, but didn't try the other nights so I'm sure it varies. Tai restaurant was free (more like Chinese) very enjoyable and in a nice setting. The Aroma grill restaurant was very nice as well and again pretty setting, this was one you had to pay for but for 2 main meals and drinks it's was no more than 25euro. - No problem with getting a good sun bed, myself and my boyfriend obviously were walking around with our eyes closed as I didn't see any sun beds 'falling apart' however can only speak for the adult zone. - Beach at the edge of hotel, very choppy sea though and sand rocky in parts but nice enough. And nicer the further down you go, on the right hand side as you walk out the hotel. - Didnt experiences the kids entertainment as just went as a couple, but from what we heard off parents and looking at the time table there's lots on, sensatori I found seems to please families as well as couples. Kids pool looked really good too, slides etc. Adult entertainment at times I'd say was more for slightly older couples however we really enjoyed the comedy night which was a nice alternative to the tribute singing acts but the girl who did the singing in the terrace bar with the pianist and the guitarist was very good and nice to listen to after dinner. George Michael act was decent to be fair, not so keen on the acts who performed as a group on the main stage, for us it was abut theatrical and jazz hands but again depends what your into, definitely something for everyone. - Sports guys were great, so much too choose from to do throughout the day both for adults and kids. My boyfriend and myself got a free private archery session on the evening time rather than doing it in the day so it was cooler, which was really enjoyable, tennis courts always available to have a hit on the evenings when it was cooler too and equipment was free and provided. Gym was also decent, good equipment and cool in there with cold water dispenser. - Room was spacious, clean, complimentary slippers/bath robes/flip flops/shower gel/shampoo, iron and board in room, hair dryer in room, good safe and alarm, jacuzzi bath really nice too. - Pleasantly surprised to find we had been upgraded to a swim up room, however careful if you do pay for one that it isn't one which is in the shade all day, ours was but as it was no extra charge we weren't bothered. - Town was 10 mins in taxi or train which had many shops with the fake stuff in, restaurants and bars/clubs, quite lively on a night time for younger people to get out the hotel on abba night and go for a few drinks. - Staff were very helpful, polite and a few queries/ questions we had about things always got sorted and answered. - Adult zone was exactly that, occasionally kids walked through but certainly wasn't a problem, it was pretty quiet and mostly filled with couples both younger and older, met some really nice people who we have since kept in touch with. Could be better: - Fresh towels sometimes not ready until later in the day, worse things have happened but for what your paying for a sensatori and the 5star tag towels should be ready in the morning, few people had mentioned the same thing. - Fridge wasn't that cold so had to ask for that to be sorted, which it was on the same day. - We would usually eat from 8.30pm onwards but on the last day we eat in the main restaurant about 7pm as we were due to be picked up for our flight. Unfortunately if you eat at this time it is filled with families and young children which would be fine and certainly isn't something we are bothered about however throughout our meal kids were unsupervised running around our table and I then saw one kid unsupervised in the dessert section licking the ice cream scoop and putting it back for others to use which kind of put me off, so note: take your own spoon to get your ice cream! - Aroma grill resauraunt is outside and your food is served on a hot stone which you kind of cook yourself however as nice as it was it was like a sauna, get a fan in the place! Especially for men having to where trousers in there! - The day your leaving you send your bags off and show you boarding cards at the hotel with the idea being its quicker than at the airport. We did this outside the hotel reception in the heat and for us we were in a 30 min que. However in all fairness when we did arrive at the airport it did look manic so maybe for the best. But surely we could do it in the air con reception rather than outside? - All inclusive isn't worth it unless you drink like a fish, you can have a bottle of wine each at dinner plus all the drinks you want as your chillin and eating and then you can always take a few away so the 35euro each a day extra isn't worth it to me but depends how much you drink. As we could have drinks at breakfast, lunch and dinner we just drank bottled water throughout the day (6 big bottles for 1.20 euro at the shop directly opposite the hotels reception) hotels shop is expensive. - Plus the particular cocktails and milkshakes we liked and had sometimes in the day aren't included in the all inclusive package anyway. To be honest they weren't cheap about 8euro a cocktail but the ones I tried were really good. Throughout the week the drinks we had we charged to the room to save taking money out and just paid the bill at the end, bill was 80euro's ish for the week. Not including our couple of nights out the hotel into town obviously. - Wi-fi could have been better because at times it took us while to load up things however we did manage to download a film for the plan home over the course of a few days in our hotel room and we face time'd home too so couldn't of been that bad. Overall: Would go again and would recommend it. Few things could have been better as mentioned but the overall service, choice of food and quality of food, entertainment package day/evening as well as all the little extras sensatori provided to me made it worth the money we paid.More
