About Creta Palace

Located along a rocky coastline less than a quarter-mile from the picturesque port of Panormo, the Creta Palace Grecotel offers stylish comfort in a white cube façade that includes one of the largest spas on Crete as well as a long stretch of Blue Flag sandy beach and three outstanding restaurants.


This laid-back resort made up of a series of Cycladic-style white cubes overlooks lush lawns and a large pool, with greenery lined paths winding to various places like an old-style Greek square with a traditional Greek coffee house. There are rooms, bungalows, villas and suites, including great options for families like the two-bedroom family bungalows. Deluxe sea view villas offer lots of privacy with a plunge pool and sunbeds that overlook the beach. There’s a large outdoor swimming pool with lots of sunbeds and cabanas as well as an indoor heated spa pool and a variety of spa treatments. The multiple dining options include Hellas known for its tasty authentic local dishes while Barbarossa serves seafood overlooking the beach. A trendy roof bar is the ideal spot for breathtaking views and sunset cocktails. Just a few of the other facilities include a fitness center, tennis courts and kids’ playground.


Creta Palace Grecotel is a short walk from the port of Panormo, 2.5 miles from Rethymnon’s Old Town while Chania International Airport is a 24-mile drive away.
