Hotel Review: Nana Princess, Crete
This hotel offers a surprising amount: a large range of facilities including an exceptional spa and gym, lots of sports, wellness and fitness facilities both at the hotel and its sister hotel next door. The restaurants are of a very high standard, the bars enticing, and guest rooms are especially comfortable.
Rooms available from £364.46 per night
Your expert reviewer
The hotel is located on Crete's north coast between the port city of Heraklion and Agios Nikolaos on a main road that offers easy access to both of them plus key towns such as Malia. Conveniently, buses for these destinations stop outside the hotel.
By plane: flights from London and Manchester take under 4 hours. A taxi will take 25 minutes from the airport. Free parking on-site. Book flights to Heraklion.
THE LOOK AND FEEL
A lot of care has clearly been put into the design of the hotel, indicated by the use of natural materials like stone and wood, uplifted by steel and big bold sheets of glass.
The hotel has three restaurants, bars and beach bars, boutiques, swimming pools and a beach. It has a large gym with modern equipment and the spa is unusually extensive. There are lounge areas, a library and cigar room, and sister hotel Nana Golden Beach has a kids' club, waterpark, sports' club, tennis and padel courts.
