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 ››

keeping in mind this is an expensive Hotel.We went on sept 15th.Arriving late at night there was only a soggy sandwich in the room fridge,when we have arrived late at night all over the world,there has always been soup,bread,salad or something similar.We were lucky to get a good quiet room,however couple next door,in 7112 were broken into,safe ripped of the wall,lot of money taken.The Hotel is very clean and bright,there is no shortage of anything,drinks etc.This is a family Hotel,there were so many very young children and BABIES,there the screaming and crying went on night and day.Spending that amount of money,you don't expect this.The staff are very nice,nothing is to much trouble..There was one night we had to ring the desk,as our room had had been cleaned after 5pm.There were so many large pushchairs around you,had to be very careful,or you could be,knocked.There are a lot of young parents that appeare to,have very little thought for older people,when they are pushing,a pram.The dinning room was noisy as well,food is nice but very rich.We have travelled all over the world,never have we forced out of the room,by 10 30.Many guests checked vacated rooms at 5pm the room had not been cleaned.We have travelled all over the world this the worst airport we have ever been in.What this Hotel charges and what it's like not worth it,go elsewhere.There is a poor atmosphere here hardly anyone speaksMore

We have just returned from a week's holiday at the Sensatori, and it was lovely. Check in efficient, room on first floor overlooking pool. Well appointed, AC worked well, 2 wash basins, decent shower, refrigerator, kettle.
Plenty of sun beds around pools, no scramble to bag one. All pools kept to a very high standard.
Plenty of restaurants. We were full board with beer/wine/soft drinks included at meal time. Main restaurant food was of a good standard, an area designated to families with young children. Plenty of high chairs, children's plates, microwave. We also ate at the Thia, Steak on the Stone (extra charge), Greek and Tex Mex restaurants. Nearly every day we went for lunch at Tex Mex-inside, AC efficient, pleasant staff, simple food, very relaxing, long lunch.
Wifi didn't work in our room, but elsewhere it worked
Beach was stony, so difficult for children to get into sea, but we saw lots of sand castles etc!
Each evening 2 bottles of water were left by our bed together with sweets.
Paid drinks were a fair price, but just beyond the hotel perimeter were plenty of bars for cheaper drinks.
All staff were lovely, and whether you are a couple or family group, this hotel is ideal. We would returnMore

Total setting OK, but food not 5*
The room and the total setting (pools, show, location, etc) of this hotel is OK for 5*. But the food is far below 5* as well in the main restaurant as in different Ã la carte restaurants (Mexican, Crete, Thai). The main restaurant has more the atmosphere of a refectory than a 5* restaurant: table clearing with huge trolleys, food transport with plastic chariots, etc. A lot of repetitive dishes every day, some plates are recuperation from previous service (soaked salads, dried or over-cooked meat), during 7 days the same undefined fish filets, only cheap meat (chicken, pork, stuffed lamb and beef), canned and frozen vegetables, industrial cut souvlakis, etc. More than half of the guests are British (all very polite, not the boisterous one's). I have nothing against this British people but their food habits have very hard influenced the food in this hotel: poor taste and spice, warm beer, all roast well-done, peas and water-boiled vegetables, etc . Unfortunately we on the continent expect higher standards. Free WIFI in the room is very unstable and unreliable.More

Noisy A/C in pool area
First the good bits. Staff very helpful and friendly; food excellent; Show cast very good - Tony, in particular, has a beautiful voice . Lord knows how they all remember all the singing and dancing routines. Limited choice of wine but good. Not worth paying the extra for all-inclusive unless you are a heavy drinker.
We arrived nine hours late and the only apology came from the pilot at Gatwick. In particular the female rep who accompanied us to the hotel at midnight needs to be taught that just having a daft grin on your face like a Stepford wife is not good enough. We were all tired and fed up and a show of sympathy and apology on behalf of the company would not have gone amiss !!
After 2-3 nights we had to move from our spacious double room to a suite with two small rooms due to a leak in the shower. Supposedly an upgrade but definitely not.
All pool areas very overcrowded by sunbeds - this was our second Sensitori and there was a lot more space in Turkey both around the pools and also generally in the grounds. The Turkey Sensatori has family and adult areas in the main restaurant - here there is no divide so expect small children running up and down while their parents get on with the important job of eating.
Lighting on staircases between ground and first floors very poor - only turns on at dusk and generally dark and dangerous in the daytime- lights need to be on all day. WiFi generally poor - takes ages to log on then for ever to download a web page - at least it's free, I would have hated to pay for it.
The worst thing, though is the godawful a/c din coming from the roof of the Japanese/Thai restaurant that sits in the middle of the whole site. It starts about 3pm and then then on almost continuously until the restaurants close. Its like a constant jet airliner and ruins any chance of a quiet read by the pool.More
