The first Sensatori hotel, offering everything from class, prestige, fine dining, sports, a world class spa, beachfront location, lagoon type pools, swim up pools and above all - excellent value for money!

Sensatori Atlantica Hotel is located in Analipsi, a small village on Crete’s northern shores that has been a central location for olive growing for centuries. It’s admittedly not the prettiest of locations but the hotel itself is stunning and ideal for a great family friendly getaway. It’s built over a large area and designed more like a resort village than a standard hotel, which means you don’t have to leave its grounds to enjoy a variety of activities and experiences. You can spend time in the piano bar located at the foyer, try out some sports, relax in the spa or hairdresser, do a little shopping or swim in any one of the 6 beautifully designed pools, some of which are adult-only, never having to worry about your kids who will be off on their own little adventures.

If you’re travelling with Thomson’s, the Play House (3-12 years) offers fun daytime activities like the silly science lab, crazy kitchen and the arts and crafts zone, and there’s a ‘stay and play’ area for parents who don’t want to leave their children either on their own or with the staff. Other guests have access to the International Club (4-12), which is also run by English speakers. There’s a splash pool for the non-swimmers and a tree house waiting to be climbed, and if they still have energy left in the evenings they can join in the excellent Playhouse Live Show where they join teams and play games and competitions to win points. Thomson guests also get to have a weekly sleepover for a little extra!

This hotel has a great selection of facilities on offer to start with a great choice of guest rooms; family rooms consist of a very spacious room with a sliding partition, one part with two beds for kids and one with a comfortable supersized bed for the parents. Bliss! Suites have a large lounge area with high-tech facilities like docking stations for iPods and even come with their own private pools, while the fabulous swim-up rooms give you access to the water from your very own terrace.
These rooms are great for travelling with kids because you don’t have to carry half your wardrobe down to the pool – just open your door and dive in! Even the bathrooms are grown-up heaven with a Jacuzzi bath and shower unit. And just to make you feel completely at home, there are dressing gowns and slippers for adults, tea and coffee making facilities and an iron and ironing board in the room as well. Of course, you don’t have to do any housework if you don’t want to, but it’s handy to have the facilities in case the urge does take you!

Another reason to revere this fabulous Sensatori Hotel, is its superb main restaurant which offers a vast array of buffet food. It’s impossible not to find something you like here, and even the pickiest of kids won’t leave hungry. Also, for the budget conscious traveller, the Full Board Plus option means you get your 3 meals a day, house wine, draught beer and soft drinks included at both lunch and dinner. There are 6 other restaurants if buffet dining becomes a bit tiring, 4 of which are included in the Full Board Plus, although they do have to be booked between certain times of the day.

Location
Crete, Greece
Opposite Lyttos Beach, within walking distance of the village of Analipsi just 4km from Hersonissos and a 30 mins drive from Heraklion in Crete.

Our opinion
Here at Littletravellers.com we give this hotel a big thumbs-up. It’s ideal for a family holiday with children up to the age of 12. Although it is classed as a 5*, we would rate as a 4* but that shouldn’t put you off what is still a great place to visit. The only real downside is the location which really isn’t that great, so if you’re not planning on a relaxing hotel holiday lying by the pool every day and you want to get out and about in Crete, we would recommend hiring a car and visiting other parts of this lovely island.
