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 ››

First experience of Sensatori
Just back early this morning from the Sensatori at Crete. Fabulous weather and a great hotel. Very clean everywhere, lovely pools and great food in all the restaurants. Only down side for my wife and me was that we booked and paid for a sea view room and feel we got a partial see view room (8111) which was rather sad. Nobody in Thomson seemed interested in our comments about the room. No complaints about the room itself which was a lovely room. All the staff were very helpful. We enjoyed the full day trip to Knossos. All in all we would definitely go again but we would try to avoid the overnight flight out and back which is tiring. David CambridgeshireMore

Please don't take any notice of the negative reviews. We had a fabulous holiday, the hotel was spotless and our swim up room was perfect. The food in all restaurants were excellent and we were very impressed with the staff. In particular we would like to thank Vicky (Public Relations Manager) who we had emailed prior to our arrival to say we were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and not only did we receive wine and fruit when we arrived but also again on our anniversary - thank you so much Vicky you are a star. Also we would like to mention Ionica who was lovely and very professional. Thank you - we will return. Linda and David RogersMore

As good as it gets ...
This is a lovely hotel and we had a really brilliant stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. The place was spotless. The food was truly excellent and considering the amount they had to cater for it really cannot be faulted. Room absolutely fine - I know some guests had issues so choose carefully were you go - we were in 4000 block - no complaints. Areas of the pool were adult only which is good if you want to be away from the kids. Also had a breakfast area for adults only. The evening entertainment was also very good and very professional - and no noise to be heard in the rooms so sleep was undisturbed. Particularly liked the drinks handed round mid morning to all those guests around the pool. The beach not great as it was public but perfectly fine if you like to swim in it. Lovely beach about half an hour away if you wanted to walk or could take the train. Village setting not exactly pretty but everyone friendly. Lots of outings if you like going on excursions so plenty to do. Really cannot praise staff and service enough. Best of all at the end of the holiday you could check your bags out at the hotel so just rock up at airport and go through security. Fantastic. I am consider myself hard to please and puzzled at some of the reviews and wonder if it was the same hotel! Highly recommend to everyone.More

Me and my wife stayed in the sensatori crete in August.... Well... where can i start from??? The hotel, staff, location, food and our room where all outstanding. Would recommend room 4222!! Private pool suite with sea and pool view!!! The sun is over the balcony and pool near enough all day!! The village of analipsi has some restaurants, i would recommend volcano and pergiali, the bar across the reception is nice and chilled. If you fancy looking at somewhere busier of an evening the town of hersonissos is 5 minutes away! We hired a scooter from speed opposite the hotel, which i would seriously NOT recommend.... the only negative of our holiday. We got given one rust bucket that broke down.... twice and after complaining we got given another rust bucket with hardly any brakes snd NO lights!!! If u want a bike or scooter go to hersonissos...plenty of options and u wont get mugged off by â¬150.... Back to the hotel.... 5 stars all the way! Its cleaned constantly... the rooms are checked 2 to 3 times a day!! Food... spoilt for choice: red saffron, especially on the greek night, is excellent. Thai restaurant, for greek standards, very nice and worth visiting, buffet has different theme nights and is very nice, Mexican for dinner is excellent and last but not least the stone grill.... fantastic experience and worth the extra money! Thompsons overall where very good and the hotel check in is definitely the way foward!!! Clever idea!!! Being Greek, my wifes English, and having visited alot hotels in the world i would say that the sensatori crete at the top and we would definitely come back! A big thank you to Vasilis the hotel doctor!! More
Amazing holiday and couldn't have wished for more for our honeymoon. I was a little worried with some reviews before we arrived but I must say either we stayed at a different hotel or some people just can't be satisfied. We arrived for our honeymoon at 2am and were escorted to our room where we found a snack and a bottle of champaigne and the bed covered in flower petals in the shape of a heart, we booked a double room with private pool as we wanted to spend our time alone and it was perfect for us. Our room was facing the adult only pools and although we never used them I could see that they weren't packed and there was plenty of sunbeds to go round. The hotel knew it was our honeymoon and we were sent little notes through our door from the staff saying they hoped we were enjoying it and we were left fruit and other treats in our room daily. The food was amazing with plenty of choice and we also dined at the stone grill where you get a discount and it was a very enjoyable experience as you have to cook the food yourself. We had a day trip to hersonisis on the land train which stopped just outside the hotel and had a walk round the port which was a lovely day out and on our return as we pulled up at our hotel the others were pointing and saying they wished they were staying at this hotel and we felt so lucky to be able to say we were. We didn't bring our children with us but from what we saw we thought our children would also loved this hotel. I have 2 friends getting married next year wanting a luxury hotel with adult only space and I did not hesitate to recommend sensatori to them as there is nothing we could fault, the staff the food the room everything was absolutely amazing.
