Full Service Family Resort”

Avra is a great resort with great service but I would recommend it more for family trips. We went during the peak season in summer and the resort was filled with families and children. We were 2 couples and we did not really need the private pools in our bedrooms as we were out and about most of the time. The beach that Avra is on is wide, big and clean but not the white sandy kind of beach that you have seen about Cretan beaches. Location of the hotel is great, there are restaurants and cafes down the street with a few shops to buy your souvenirs. A local supermarket is also reachable around the corner. We tried a few of the restaurants in the town facing the beach and they were all quite good. Hotel has 2 different areas serving Greek breakfast or Intercontinental breakfast, both with big selections. The hotel comes with a big spa by Apivita with many type of body treatments, as pampering as they were, we did not really enjoy the massages. One exceptional thing though was their hospitality and their warmth. We remember a lady, Iro, who was managing the bar at the pool across from the main building. She had the greatest smiles and passion towards her work and engaging with all the guests, it was just a great experience!

Crazy about Avra Imperial Beach Resort and Spa - Kolymbari”

Staying here made me think that I had died and gone to heaven. Strikingly beautiful in its layout, architecture, swimming pools, restaurants. This place is simply a wonderful experience. And the service is out of this world. The staff is so helpful, polite, accommodating. If you ever get the chance to stay here, TAKE IT!!

Very nice and modern hotel with many pools, bars and restaurants.”

We were upgraded to a suite with private pool which was a great gesture from the hotel. The suite was excellent but unfortunately not very clean. Hairs and dust on the floors and pool side terrace not swiped. Also, the finishing work details are definitely not a forte in Greece in general. The staff was generally kind and pleasing but also arrogant and not professional at times. The variety of pools is great, however the beach side is very disappointing and poorly arranged. Buffet restaurants offered a great variety of food which was excellent. All in all a quite good luxury stay with a few flaws.

Private pool with sunbeds is amazing”

Unfortunately no morning Yoga. Breakfast is not good for weightwachers: no salads (only tomatoes and curcumber). Mostly very sweet cakes. You need to wait to be seated even if breakfast hall is half empty. No packed breakfast was offered. Otherwise, clean and amazing place with friendly staff. We enjoyed the private pool and sunbeds.

Amazing Experience”

We had an amazing experience at Avra. We are a young couple with a toddler and so glad we decided to stay at this hotel. Amazing property. The staff is amazing and can't do enough to make your stay amazing. Vicky at the reception helped us with our check out, and that even added to the beautiful stay we had. Nikos Chef at the Restaurant helped us with our food choices and ensured there are plenty for us for dinner. This will be our hotel to go to whenever we come to Crete. Thank you so much Avra.!
