Overview

The Aldemar Knossos Royal sits close to a spectacular sandy beach on the north coast of Crete. Ideal for family holidays, this hotel houses elegant and comfortable rooms, five restaurants, several pools and dedicated children’s areas − including a kids’ club, two outdoor kids’ pools and multiple play zones. Diverse daytime activities entertain all ages, and you can stroll along the hotel’s palm-tree-lined avenue to reach the beach.

Aldemar Knossos Royal stretches along a pretty peninsula, around three miles from Hersonissos. In this lively town, you’ll find a trio of sandy beaches and a bustling waterfront packed with restaurants, bars and clubs. You can also discover ancient Roman ruins in the town or travel 20 miles west to the famous Archaeological Site of Knossos, which was built in the Minoan period. Another attraction within easy reach is the 18-hole Crete Golf Club, around six miles away. The nearest airport is Heraklion Airport, around 17 miles away, and Chania International Airport is 108 miles from the property.

The comfortable rooms and suites are decorated in neutral tones and feature wood or tiled floors. En-suite bathrooms feature good-sized bathtubs, and all rooms lead to a private balcony or veranda with garden, pool or sea views. Double Bungalow VIP Sea Front rooms are situated close to the beach, overlooking the Aegean Sea, and they boast access to a shared pool. Select Family accommodation also offers access to a shared pool, including Family Suites with separate bedroom and living areas, and Family Maisonettes, which spread across two floors.

Other facilities

The outdoor pools are the resort’s main focal point. There are two large saltwater pools, including one with a water slide, and two kids’ pools. You’ll also find a heated freshwater pool indoors. Sun loungers, umbrellas and pool towels are available by the pools or on the beach.

Children can play on the manicured lawns and open-air playgrounds or hang out at the kids’ club. Supervisors entertain children between the ages of 4 and 12 here with daily competitions, games and activities, and the club also provides a kids’ buffet and hosts mini discos during the evening.

Adults are catered for, too, with a well-equipped fitness centre, two tennis courts and a sauna. The whole family can spend time in the games room, play mini-golf or water games and watch live performances at the on-site amphitheatre. Water sports are on offer at the beach and staff can organise local excursions for a supplementary charge. 

Dining information

Aldemar Knossos Royal offers five restaurants and four bars. The main restaurant serves buffet-style dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and hosts two theme nights each week. You can choose from a range of salads, appetisers, main courses and desserts, and the children's buffet restaurant next door offers a selection of child-friendly meals.

At lunchtime, dine beside the sea at the casual Beach Restaurant, or stop by the snack bar for light bites, ice creams and drinks. You can also relish a coffee and pastry at Manitari bar. For dinner, sample authentic Cretan dishes from the a la carte menu at Artemis Taverna, or reserve a table at Fontana Amorosa, where you can dine al fresco on gourmet Mediterranean cuisine.
