Heraklion Reviews

Holiday Date:17th Jun 2014
Accommodation:Galaxy Hotel
Room:Superior Double Or Twin
Board:Bed & Breakfast
(3 suns)

As a resort it doesn't really have that much to offer, no beach, not too many restaurants. There were plenty of bars and the nightlife was very busy at night. Some local history and of course Knossos is a must. Would stay again but only for a weekend break. There are nicer resorts to stay in. <br />

Holiday Date:28th Apr 2014
Accommodation:Galaxy Hotel
Room:Superior Single
Board:Bed & Breakfast
(4 suns)

The National Museum is really worth a visit. Some rooms were rearranged and only opened in May.
