The first Sensatori property is well-versed in the art of indulgence. Everything from meals to spa treatments are served with a touch of classic, Greek style.
As the first Sensatori resort, this place paved the way for all the others. The luxurious rooms here range from 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 TUI 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 ››

great, relaxing (adult) family holiday
Gorgeous hotel! We've just got back from a week here as a family of 6 adults and have had a great time! The food has been fantastic, with plenty of choice which is prepared and cooked to a good standard in the main buffet restaurant. We've been to many AI hotels now over the years and found both the food and drink options to be very good. We also went to Santorini for the day and they provided a good packed lunch for this. All of the staff were attentive and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the adults-only breakfast and pools! People reserve sun beds from quite early in the morning and most of them usually go, but we didn't have any issues with this, even as a group of 6. The grounds are stunning and kept very clean. We found our room (not an updated one) to be nice, with some view of the sea, kept clean, a good shower and a HUGE comfy bed! My only fault with the hotel that sometimes the (salt water) pools could have been cleaner and a number of the tiles need fixing/replacing. Tips- take a hair dryer. There is one in the bathroom but it isn't great. Block 5 was great for us for the adult only sections. The airport is awful! Nothing to do with the hotel but it certainly puts a downer on the end of your holiday (especially with a cancelled flight!). Good luck!More
Just Returned-Fantastic Hotel
Had reservations about hotel from the reviews on trip advisor months before. Just arrived back home from 1 week stay and can say the hotel, food, entertainment, staff where absolutely fantastic. I can't work out what people where complaining about. I would definitely go backMore
Good family holiday which could have been better
Our second AI this year and we paid a fair bit more for this one. Based purely on that I would have expected more from this one. Our room was tired and worn around the edges however I expected that a little from previous reviews. Overall though it was functional with a lovely balcony. Our child was happy so we were. The bed is very comfortable and the pillow menu a nice touch. I can only eat gluten free food and the separate area is great. After 7 days however it is very samey. Again like so many other recent reviews the main food selection was pretty repetitive. I have seen much better show cooking sections. Pool area was excellent and again out little lad loved it so we were happy. The only improvement would be removing towels from sunbeds that the hoggers who turn up at 3pm leave down. Very busy at this time of year and with the exception of the splash pool area they were all gone by 10.30. Pre mixed cocktails?? Not the norm for sensatori. Wine tasted nice. All in all we had a good time but I left feeling it could have been better. More
Very disappointed - more 3 star
Absolutely gutted. When you pay the amount you do this place is a joke. If you were adults only then fine. Will never ever come back to this place - we had so looked forward to coming here, it's heart breaking, we have 9 days still to go.......completely let down, need a big wake up call Sensatori More

Restaurants and Sunbeds !
Whilst we enjoyed our week there are some deal breakers that would stop me going back or recommending the hotel to anyone. 1. All the sunbeds are taken by 8am with people putting their towels on them and then going back to bed or going to breakfast. 2. The reservation system for the a la carte restaurants is a nightmare. The reservation system opens at 10.00am and by 10.01am (literally) all the restaurants are fully booked. 3. The buffet in the main restaurant was pretty much the same every day and the quality of the food was poor.More
