Sensatori Resort Crete  

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.

The Thomson Sensatori idea is a good one. However WATCH OUT. If like us you do not like SALT WATER POOLS then you are in for a shock and dreadful time. All of the pools are salt water. Something Thomson fail to highlight in their brochure. The beach is really not safe and quite dangerous with rocks and sharp sand. The entertainment and staff were fabulous. Such a shame that SALT WATER ruined it for us.More

Beautiful Family Hotel.

I had a lovely time here, we went as a family with 3 teenagers, the food is great and the hotel and staff are lovely, the only problem I had was with thompson holiday reps, they were rude and not helpful at all, I paid 380.00 extra for a sea view and my room was facing the coffee bar and they were telling me that was a sea view, I nearly broke my neck trying to see the sea, their answer was more or less tough! In my opinion Thompson lets this hotel down. The restuarant manager was extremely nice and very helpful, it made the food side good, very friendly, I have forgotten his name but know he studied at St Andrews!! The tiles in the blocks are very slidey so be careful. All in all a fantastic holiday.More

Not my idea of 5*

My husband and I were here for 1 week in Sept 2011. To be honest it wasn't our first choice but circumstances engineered our staying here. The rooms were ok but I don't consider views of a bus stop and dusty road particularly inspiring. The sun beds are set so close together and the sun umbrellas are fixed into the area, so that when you opened your umbrella the people on the sun beds beside you get the shade. The restaurant was ok, but again the tables were so close together that you could hear all adjoining conversations. All in all a very disappointing break and not a hotel we would return to.More

Perfect relaxing break at Sensatori Crete

My girlfriend and I stayed at Sensatori Crete, for one week, in September, and the hotel didn't fail to disappoint. We booked the standard double room and were surprised how spacious it was, the bed was also super comfy! There was lots going on in the hotel, which gave the place a really nice atmosphere but the pool area was cleverly sectioned in to adult-only and family zones, so it was easy to escape the bustle too. The food was of an excellent standard and there was a good selection of restaurants available that were included as part of the package. The red saffron restaurant turned into an adults only breakfast area every day, which was great, and with Al fresco dining, it was lovely being able to sit outside. There was a good variety of entertainment too, we particularly enjoyed the evening shows, which were really professionally done. My girlfriend booked in for a massage at the spa, which she said really enjoyed, it seems to book up quickly though so make sure you book in early. There are a few shops surrounding the hotel if you fancy a stroll outside of the hotel but we opted to hire a car to explore the rest of this stunning island.More

Fantastic holiday x2

After reading some of the comments I felt obliged to write a review. My girlfriend and myself had our holiday here in May 2013. We had a room in block 8 outward facing, whilst looking in land and having a part sea view we ended up have the sun from 1400hrs for the rest of the day. Ideal if you had enough of the pool. Room was cleaned every day and kept to a high standard. We had 1 issue with our door which was fixed promptly, just needed new batteries In the lock. Rooms had enough space which my girlfriend used most, I just had a tiny corner! If I could suggest one thing is maybe a few more English speaking channels, but that's just being picky. The hotel itself was a fantastic hotel and always clean. Quite isolated from the big towns but I guess that was the idea when built to increase revenue. On arrival we were advised to get some food, as we came just befor lunch had finished serving. We were greeted we a big hello and seated right away. Food was good in main restaurant with lots of variety and different themed night each night. Kitchen staff were always replening the food and always busy, however they still managed to smile and say hello if they caught your eye. The head chef was a real character and became my little mate, even took the time to find where I was sitting and bring me fresh ribs an salad to my table. QUALITY!! He never seemed to have a day off and was at every meal time and checking the other restaurants. The highlight was defo the Tex-Mex, and ended up eating in there most lunch times. The Thai restaurant in the evening was a big hit also. However!!! The booking system needs updating, with at least 2 out of the 4 machines not work at anyone time, and with about 50 people queuing to book not ideal. The staff and service in my eyes are 2nd to none. The staff were always helpful, polite and hard working. The entertainment is what sets this hotel apart from the rest, with high standard west end performances and quality acts flown in from UK. The management were also very visible and we gave the hotel manager the nickname "walkie" as he just seemed to be everywhere all the time. He told us his aim was to be at seven places at once. An he nearly done it as well. There was plenty of activities to be done in the day, and hotel seemed to accommodate children greatly, but we don't have kids as yet so can't really go to much into that. Club cafe across the road is quite lively. And the owner Janus is crazy but a legend. Obviously it's a bar so loud music will be played late and he has all the football on. Even had 6 different matches on for the last game of the season. If you are looking to hire a car I would suggest using the hire centre further up the road, as the hire centre opposite is bit pricey. Defo take a day to explore and hire a car or quad and visit Agios Nikolaos. Lovely town. We enjoyed the holiday so much we returned in May 2014 this time with a swim up room and got the in laws to come for a week also. Most of the staff remembered us and seemed trilled to see us and catch up. Water was a touch cool in the swim up, was enjoyable but turned out to a waste of money for us, as the in laws got a complimentary upgrade to a family suite with private pool at the very top of the hotel and we ended up there all the time. If u do get a Red Carpet Lounge pass, remember that all you drinks are free while in there, well the "All inclusive" ones anyway but they don't tell you that. Over all both holidays were fantastic, and we were looking to go again this year, but the imminent arrival of twins has put them plans on hold till next year. I would suggest anybody to come here and I feel they would have a fantastic time. While I understand that some people may have problems I can't believe that the staff wouldn't bend over backwards to sort it out. I think some of the reviews I have read are incorrect the the people writing them need to get their head out their backsides and stop being so snobby, because this hotel, staff, and holiday was FANTASTIC!!! Thank you for taking the time to read my review.More
