First impression is good, the reception area is nice, but as you go further up you can see how dated the hotel is. Old carpets and things fallen apart. The gym is so old that it doesn't look safe to use. Most of the staff were very nice and friendly. The food at the hotel seemed very salty.

Everything was great except the decor, could do with a makeover (especially the carpet). The staff were excellent, food was very good, especially as you can have a change and eat at the poolside food bar, (omelettes, pizzas, sandwiches, and all freshly made. Good entertainment and the perfect location (especially for someone like me with breathing problems and arthritis). I have been going to the hotel for several years now so that speaks for itself. Great.

This is the best hotel to stay in by far overlooking a beautiful bay, you can watch the cruise ships come and go, 2 minutes walk into town on the promenade where there are lots of shops a lake and a very large marina.

The food in the hotel is fantastic, huge amounts and choices and very well presented. There is entertainment every night of a very high standard and the hotel is spotlessly clean. In the day Adam and Katia are the entertainment duo offering yoga, water aerobics, darts, table tennis etc with no pressure to join in, very discreet and hard working.

Make sure you have a sea view room, about £7 a day extra and worth every penny, the views are fabulous, also opt for the all inclusive, if you go half board and buy food and drinks you get exactly the same as the all inclusive and will save lots. We paid less than £500 each which included early flights from Manchester, all inclusive, sea view and a private transfer which took 45 minutes. Perfect!

This is the best hotel to stay in, overlooking a beautiful bay, you can watch the cruise ships come and go, 2 minute walk into town where the lake is and lots of shops and a very large marine.

The food at the hotel is fabulous the quantity and choice is unbelievable, there is entertainment every night of a very high standard, during the day Adam and Katia are the entertainment duo offering yoga, water aerobics, table tennis, darts, etc, with no pressure to join in, very discrete. Not a lot for children to do other than the pool but that is why we picked this hotel.

One thing I would recommend is a sea view room It was about £7 a night and worth every penny, the view is stunning, also go all inclusive, if you are half board and go for lunch or drinks at any time you get exactly the same but pay for them and it soon adds up. With sunshine we paid less than £500 each all inc, sea view and a private transfer which took 40 minutes. Perfect.

Lovely hotel, ideally situated as it is only a short walk from the centre of Aghios Nikolaos. Fantastic staff. Just wish we had visited a couple of weeks earlier. We went the end of the season and the hotel did not have any evening entertainments, bbq's etc. Having said that, we had a great time.

I am a frequent returner to this resort and this hotel. Why? Because the position of the Hermes, is ideal for the town. The staff are friendly and often go out of their way to help you. The rooms are spotlessly clean, towels and sheets daily changed and well equipped with fridge and safe. All meals are buffet style and there is an extensive choice of menu of both Greek and European dishes. I would not consider this hotel really appropriate for children.

I am a frequent returner to The Hermes. The rooms are spotlessly clean, towels, sheets changed every day. Excellent facilities and spacious. Plenty of choice at the buffet run meals. Lots of variety including choice of Greek specialities. Above all the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff is quiet exceptional.

Rooms good and clean. We had a sea view, we think it's worth the extra. Pool area and view very good. Food good choice but got a bit sameish, if we visited again we would go b and b, lots of choice outside. Lovely staff, not one bad egg. Nice friendly bar almost next door called Todedeloki, very good value and quality snacks and drink.

First time for us in Crete and what a super location this hotel is in this lovely resort. We were expecting this to be an Iberostar hotel but it seems to have been taken over by Dessole who also ran the hotel next door and a 5* along the bay. We arrived near midnight and was pleased to see that a salad meal had been left for us in the fridge. The room was fine, a little tired in places but a super shower and great balcony overlooking the bay. No kettle (but had taken our own) although our friends on floor 7 had tea making facilities. Our perfectly decent flat screen TV was replaced with a brand new LG flat screen half way through the week. Safe was free too. As commented earlier the bed was a tad hard but we were so exhausted most nights we crashed as soon as we hit the pillow. The meals were very good, excellent variety (we were half board) and several nights had a BBQ themed dinners and much to our surprise drinks were fairly priced with 8 euros for a decent bottle of wine. All the staff were very friendly (as are the Cretans) and the hotel generally was clean and tidy. Pool area was good with a salt water pool on the 5th floor or you could swim in the sea which was pleasant once you got your swimsuit wet! The snack bar for us non AI was also very reasonable and there was certainly no disadvantage in being HB. In fact en route home a fellow holidaymaker said he wished he'd gone HB too. You are minutes walk from the town centre and harbour so couldn't be better located. The Animation team were nice and weren't in your face asking you to play mindless games all the time. The evening entertainment was ok, held in the area around the pool and adjacent to the restaurant. I had a look in the gym which seemed to have all the facilities for fitness fanatics. So all in all we were very impressed and are seriously thinking of going back in October for an autumn break but would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel in the future. There is so much to see on this vast island.

Lovely staff, food and ambiance. Light, spotlessly clean, airy hotel with spacious, but tired bedrooms, in need of renovation. Bathrooms need power showers and decent hairdryers. We have stayed here many times before when it was an Iberostar hotel.
Hated the animation programme. Being constantly reminded of forthcoming activities, which were noisy and reminded us of a Butlins holiday camp was the downside to what was a very adult focused hotel - a tranquil oasis. Fridge and towels provided. Sea room rooms a must. Well managed hotel with fabulous buffets, but would become very boring if All Inclusive. House wine dreadful though. Doesn't compliment the beautiful food. In summary, a great hotel in need of updating and fine tuning to retain repeat custom of adult Brits.
