Lovely spot on the coast
Beautiful setting! Services, accommodation, hotel facilities were first rate. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Complimentary champagne on arrival was also very nice touch. Room rate included half board, in the form of a voucher at check-in. The buffet dinner and breakfast were only okay, but regular restaurant meals were very good. Small beach area and pool were very nice, permitting lovely views of the sea and coastline.

Amazing☺️
From start to finish, this hotel is amazing. We came to this hotel for our final stop on our honeymoon We found out our ferry was delayed so we called to let the staff know we would be checking in very late at night. Nikos arranged for the staff to provide us with dinner when we arrived, even thought the restaurants were closed. Nikos was amazing and extremely generous to us. The entire staff made us feel at home. If we come back to Crete, we will definitely be staying here. We recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to just relax at a resort.

Sixth stay and even better
This was our sixth visit to St Nicholas Bay which says it all. We are treated so well by the manager and all the staff. The rooms and facilities are excellent and we always leave feeling fully relaxed and planning our next visit.

Beautiful views from some rooms and suites.
Fantastic views. Slight disappointment how we were treated by Nikos, front desk manager. We asked for another room as the first one oferred did not match the description. Nikos helped us and finally the third room on the next day after arrival was resembling what we had booked. Unfortunately Nikos showed his irritation and suggested that the last room we decided to stay in was his special gift for us. Then he ignored us through out the rest of our stay and turned his eyes away whenever met. It was clearly unacceptable way of behaviour of the hotel employee of this level. Apart from this not very nice experience everything else was fine.
