Before it passed through the hands of the Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Venetians and Ottoman Turks; the Greek Island of Crete was home to the oldest European civilization on record. A beach lovers paradise, modern day Crete now homes the five-star Aquila Atlantis Hotel in the lively capital of Heraklion. Like its setting, the geometrically designed Aquila Atlantis is a sophisticated choice with modern décor and luxe features. Were talking two freshwater pools (one outside on the sunny rooftop), a stylish lobby bar and a restaurant serving authentic Greek platters. Bedrooms are decorated to the highest standards, boasting parquet flooring, rich fabrics and high-end electronics looking out over the city or harbour.To see what's included, please select the offers below.

...on the North of the island and all of the main towns are on the coast and most hotels are in the towns or a few miles outside of them. I stayed very near Rethymno in the Rithyma Beach hotel which was part of the Grecotel chain. Though I won't go into detail about the hotel I'll stick to category - Crete in general!
