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.

Exceeded expectations.

We were sold this hotel by Thomson in store having told them our most important 'want' for our holiday was fantastic food. They assured us this was the place for us, however we were disappointed not to be told of the extra charges for the additional restaurants, which we learnt about once home. This hotel is not advertised as Adults Only..... It has a kids club, splash pool etc so if you go thinking there are no children then you are naive! However, there is a great adults only pool area, a separate area for breakfast and at the main buffet - the back section is adults only, so no need to be surrounded by families like mine with energetic children. We had a family room, with a sliding partition which was a good size. The bathroom was separate shower and jacuzzi bath was an ok size. The room was spotless, cleaned twice and day and a turn down service provided. In my opinion, the buffet was great. Breakfast had the usual choices of cooked breakfast, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, omelettes made to order, plus pancakes or waffles etc. Lunch was varied, salads were plentiful and hot lunch too. Dinner again was varied with a theme most nights. Puddings were fab! We ate at the Stone Grill and whilst it was great, I did not feel it was good value for money. The Thai was average. We never found it difficult to use the reservation kiosks. The staff were great and very good with my children, especially Chrysa. My children went into the kids club twice and thoroughly enjoyed it. We went to the children's evening entertainment once but that's not really our thing. We visited the beach but it was always very windy. If you head down by the water, the sand was fine enough to build sand castles. We would probably not return, only as we like to explore new places - but we would recommend.More

Excellent holiday

My wife and I booked this holiday only a few weeks before leaving after being recommended to other Sensatori resorts by friends. We were not disappointed. Right from the airport we were totally taken care of. The hotel its self is excellent (we stayed in block 6), the room was huge with a large balcony (we didnt go for the swim up room but perhaps would next time). The main restaurant was superb with excellent food choice and always plenty of it. If you dont want to be pestered by children then choose to sit in the adult only section. We also tried a few of the other restaurants on site which were also excellent. The staff in all the restaurants were very attentive and couldnt do enough to help. In particular Simone in the main restaurant. Our evenings were usually spent in the lobby bar listening to the excellent entertainment. Here we must mention the wonderful Agapi who served us most evenings. She was a delight and worthy of special mention. The pools were always uncrowded with plenty of sunbeds available. We certainly did not see much of the reserving of sunbeds and even when they were we still managed to get a bed at all times of the day. Again if you dont wish to be pestered choose the adults only pool. I cant praise this resort or the staff enough, especially the 2 mentioned, and the whole place in our opinion is first class.More

1st family holiday

So we arrive at 1am ... after a very quick check in we were taken to our very large room 6209.. first impressions very clean and great location pool and sea view .. it was important that we had a nice time as it was my first holiday with my boyfriend and his 15 year old son.. no fault of the hotel but there where very few teenagers at the resort at this time of year.. there was a sports menu every day but you had to go to the rear of the hotel to find the sports and not many people joined in, maybe if the team had been allowed to recruit a few people from the many different areas this may have been different ... the food was excellent in all restaurants we didn't go to the ones you had to pay additional money for so for a change we went out to eat ... we went to the tex mex lunch time as this was one of the restaurants you have to reserve for the evening and had one nice meal in the thai as these restaurants required Long trousers for men in the evening.. yet i see one women in shorts and trainers ? we spent most of our days on the beach in front of the hotel which has a very on the ball life guard who kept everyone safe as there are a lot of reefs you cant see and the current if strong so well done him... 5euros for a brolly and two beds we spent the extra for the beach as the towel brigade operate in the hotel and I don't do this myself I am glad I don't want to sit at the same sunbed for the length of my holiday .. to be fair there are plenty of beds in plenty of areas so unless you want the same one every day be prepared to get up early ... so many nice staff in the hotel we had the additional all inclusive and there wasn't many drinks that we couldn't have .. the staff of the hotel work very hard to please .. we ordered two lunch boxes during our stay which was very good .. evening entertainment was just that entertainment .. the acts brought in where good Robbie Williams guy very good .. the team worked hard and had good voices the guy who played piano in the bar was excellent .. the TU staff where well some very interested in the guests others not so ... I had a 2 hour spa session worth every euro .. overall I think we got our moneys worthMore

Amazing Relaxing Week

Well from start to finish me and my daughter had an amazing relaxing week, In fact we didn't bother leaving the hotel....we just didn't need to. The staff were very helpful and friendly without exception. The room was clean and spacious as was the balcony. The food in the main restaurant was great, best breakfast buffet I have seen. You get complimentary water, wine beer or soft drink with all meals which is great. The pool area (we sat in the adults section) was clean quiet and relaxing. The childrens pools of which there were several) were busy but all the kids looked to be having a ball. In the restaurant the kiddies meals were displayed at a low level so they could see what they wanted which I thought was a nice touch. We booked in at the aroma stone grill one evening....this is easy to do on the machines in the main building....but a word of up meals days in advance when you first get there as they book up very quickly! The evening entertainment is fun and of good quality.....the Robbie Williams tribute act was great. The only downside of the whole week was the service around the pool area....we sat by the adult pool in front of the shop and were only offered waiter service about once a day (twice one day). For me this was disappointing. For a five star hotel the pool service was poor but we just nipped in the shop behind us or went to the bar ourselves. I would have spent twice as much if the service was available but at least my liver is happy!More
