A lively pool scene and classy restaurants make this luxury hotel worth shouting about – and it’s all wrapped up in traditional Greek good looks.
The king-size Mirabello Hotel has it all – 2 beaches, a pair of pools, 3 restaurants, and a list of activities as long as your arm.
Choice is the keyword here – the accommodation ticks off everything from bungalow rooms with shared pools to sea-view maisonettes. And there’s an army of restaurants and sea-view bars.

Value for money - wonderful island retreat
For once we didn't upgrade but to be honest the standard rooms were perfectly adequate and the mini bar is filled up daily with soft drinks and beers. Food is prepared to a high standard and we didn't find the menu repetitive just delicious and for once eating salad was not a punishment. Choice of swimming pool or beach location for lounging around on the sun bed and enjoy the breath taking views. Hotel staff are friendly, welcoming and the entertainment staff were happy to encourage participation or leave you alone in peace. The only observations I would make ( and they are strictly observations and not criticisms) are: 1. The hairdryers in the standard rooms aren't very powerful so if you have thick or long hair you might still want to pack a travel hairdryer 2. There is a strict dress code in the restaurants and men are required to wear long trousers, no shorts or 3/4 length trousers ( my Hubble got caught out but then it is a five star hotel so our problem for packing incorrectly) 3. Lovely spa but you have to pay cash and this was not apparent at time of booking (again easily resolved as there is a cash point in the little supermarket opposite the hotel) To summarise fabulous week away in glorious sunshine and other guests we met were really friendly. Good mix of nationalities, age groups and no need to get up at "stupid o'clock" to claim a sunbed. It has been 30 years since I was last in Crete but rather than being disappointed I am leaving more in love with the Island and the wonderfully hospitable Cretan people than ever and could happily extend the holiday. My final postscript before signing off is that eating out is extremely reasonable and there are a whole host of taverna/restaurants selling Cretan food in the main town which costs about 6 euros in a taxi each way. I will be leaving with very fond memories, a suntan and a resolve to carry on eating he healthy Mediterranean dietMore
The best good time ðºðð
We have just returned from staying at this hotel. We were a week. The hotel is located in a picturesque spot near the harbor.From the harbor on foot 30 min.Taxi is about 10 mins for 6 euros.Some port super place with small streets beautifully situated by the sea.Hotel nice clean and not crowded beach there is always a place with free sun loungers . In hockey good food and nice and uninteresting service. We were in the hotel spa not recommending we paid 180 euros for the service.Serwis at the spa we were not interested generally about customer i would not recommend this spa at all stay at this hotel highly recommend very friendly staff and amazing services . Water in the pool really fresh but very good for refreshing your warm body . Surround hotel a lot of interesting places to view . In Sunday gothic church in hotel . If you like something extra you can visit Santorini islands the cost for couple about 280 pounds for all day trip. More
Well fantastic setting very clean hotel!! The management were terrible, you will be able tell who they are as they are the ones that don't smile. half of the restaurants weren't open the first week of may all soft drinks tasted of line cleaner with even the staff agreed with but couldn't do anything about it. The hotel entertainment guys were so friendly and nice but weren't allowed to play any good music etc of an evening. No snacks available unless you wanted a peanut. Food was fantastic but guys are not allowed to wear shorts in the buffet restaurant in the evening so you would have to eat out the hotel if you wanted to wear shorts. GARDEN VIEW best described as a brick wall!! All inclusive menu changed half way though the week so what was included isn't the next day. Rooms very basic I asked for a sea view which additional â¬40 a day which I thought was a little steep. Toilets by the beach were so clean. Crete the island is amazing. More

Wonderfull place, especially for family with children. Excelent beach and food. We would like to come again but the price this year is about 5.000 EUR for two weeks for double room and all inclusive and that is really high...More
Me and my partner have recently been to Crete for the first time. The Mirabello was an absolutely perfect find. The location is beautiful, and just a 20 minute walk from Ag Nik marina town (which is beautiful) and the hotel had its own beach, beautiful sea and great for swimming/snorkelling! The food, 10/10, fresh, varied food and the deserts... best I've had at an all inclusive!! The Italian a la carte is perfect for lunch too, with fresh pizzas/pastas/salads! The animation team made our holiday so much fun!! Pipi and Roland are top guys and you can pick from so many activities and they will make the holiday fun...and quite competitive ð Rooms clean, staff very friendly and the whole hotel was spotless and we could not fault it!! Suggestions - visit Spinaloga, get the bus to Elounga (it only costs â¬1.80 for the bus from the hotel then â¬10 on the boat from there to the island!) some trips are very expensive so do this yourself! -We hired a quad bike for the day and explored the island, my top tip, the coastal areas and mountains nearby are stunning and the Greek culture is beautiful! Quad hire is â¬45 for the day, and was well worth it! -Also there is an olive farm next to the hotel although we didn't visit this, it is free! For a lovely couples or family holiday, this destination and hotel is perfect! If you are going here you will have a great time! More
