OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Located on the north coast of Crete on a steep hillside at Agia Pelagia, once a fishing village and now a seaside resort, the hotel is around 24km from Heraklion, its airport and ferry port.

By plane: flights from London and Manchester to Heraklion take under 4 hours. A taxi will take under 30 minutes from the airport. Free parking on-site. Book flights to Heraklion.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Perched on a cliff overlooking the deep blue waters of Mononaftis Bay, the series of brown suites and villas line the hill. The look is rather more successful inside the rooms than out: the close proximity of the larger all-inclusive Seaside resort and lots of cars lining Acro's villas initially detract from the five-star look.

THE FACILITIES

Service is generally good. As well as the restaurant, bar and spa, there's a small boutique, a small gym with eco-friendly equipment and a well-equipped one with modern Technogym equipment. The bamboo yoga shala offers daily yoga and meditation. There are also sports facilities shared with sister resort, Seaside.
