Mitsis Laguna Resort & Spa

Located on the outskirts of Hersonissos, Mitsis Laguna Resort and Spa is a 5-star all-inclusive resort, steps from the beach, with views of the Cretan mountains and the coast. Kids aged 4-11 are safely entertained at the Mini Club, while their parents can make use of the luxurious facilities the hotel has to offer.

You won’t find many hotels on Crete with a Champagne, Wine & Sushi Bar but at Mitsis Laguna Resort you’ll find just that, so spend the evening devouring sushi while sipping Champagne (additional charge) or one of the local Greek wines. Don’t worry if that’s not your thing as there’s six other restaurants at your fingertips , including a fish a la carte, a Cretan tavern specialising in local delicacies and an Italian offering a wide range of pastas, risottos and pizzas. Tasty burritos and fajitas are available at the Mexican, while rice and noodle lovers will want to visit the Pan-Asian. With all this choice it’s easy to forget the good old buffet, with its long opening hours, you won’t miss out on dinner if you’re a late arrival or miss out on breakfast if you have to catch an early flight home. If you’re going to be out sightseeing at lunchtime, you can request a snack box for your picnic. Those remaining at the resort can enjoy light bites such as crepes, hot dogs and ice-cream, between meals.

Of course you won’t be eating the whole time and you may wish to burn off some of those calories between meals. At Mitsis Laguna Resort guests can join one of the yoga classes, take part in a tennis tournament or play beach volleyball. Make a splash in the watersports centre, which offers canoeing, pedal boating and windsurfing, or in one of the five pools.. But don’t worry if it’s been a long time since you last swam, as the hotel offers swimming lessons.

And if you don't want to get wet, you can always relax on the sunbeds (with umbrellas) and enjoy a drink or three, from one of the two poolside bars. Remain here in the evening for entertaining shows or head up to the night bar with its rooftop terrace offering stunning views of the sea.

A world of relaxation, attention and indulgence awaits you at the “Zeen Spa” (additional charge.) The wellness centre features an indoor swimming pool with sea water, a whirlpool spa, a hammam and a hairdressers. Treatments you can book here include an aromatic Greek bath experience, a sugar scrub, a variety of massages and heat treatments. If you prefer to keep active there’s a fully-equipped gym.

Being a 5-star resort, even the standard rooms are large and stylish. Enjoy fresh coffee at any time of day with your own Nespresso machine, while your mini refreshment centre will include snacks, such as fruit & nuts, as well as wine. There’s also WiFi, a safe and a sofa, while bathrobes and slippers are provided. If you opt for sea view, you’ll benefit from a private terrace too. The family option includes a separate sleeping area for the kids, while there’s a partition between the toilet and the shower/bath, ideal for preventing queues! There are also two TVs, allowing the children to watch cartoons, while you enjoy a drama or documentary.

With so much to do at the hotel it’ll be easy to forget you’re on a beautiful Greek island, which has plenty to offer. 3km away is the town of Limenas Chersonisou, where children will love the Pirates of Crete. Set on a real boat you will help Pirate Tim and his parrot find the lost treasure. The braver kids and adults might like to visit Aquaworld Aquarium & Reptile Rescue Centre, where you can hold a snake. There’s also a wide range of cafes, bars and restaurants here.

First Post Covid Holiday

Feb 2022 | kernow_stuart

This was our first holiday anywhere since the Covid pandemic started and it was fantastic. Hotel was spotlessly clean and we felt completely safe and free from the pandemic. Food in the restaurants was excellent and our accomodation was perfect, beautifully clean and comfortable. Already booked again for this year so see you in September!

Stunning grounds, mediocre hotel

Jan 2022 | Hannah C

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the amazing, gold-adorned lobby which led to the inside of the dome. I absolutely adored the architecture and the rooms, as it truly felt like I was in Greece. The hotel felt quite understaffed, with queues in the check in lobby and extremely long wait times at the pool bar. The evening entertainment got repetitive, although the overall atmosphere was great The vast majority of the rooms didn't seem very private, most with terraces leading on to walkways or views being obstructed by walls. We stayed in a family room with a shared pool. We were expecting the pool to be privately accessed by around 10 rooms, but instead it was accessible by all the guests in the hotel. It was quite awkward to step onto our terrace and relax as we always had other hotel guests watching us. On many occasions, we even had people using the sunloungers that were labelled and dedicated for our room The a-la carte restaurants were okay. They were a bit canteen-like, cramped and extremely crowded at peak dinner times. The staff evidently were stressed by the large volumes of people. Had we not just returned from a stay in the Ikos Dassia in Corfu, I might have enjoyed this hotel more, but instead, I found myself comparing the two together

Fabulous holiday

Jan 2022 | Joanna S

This was a very welcome luxurious break - first trip since Covid. The food (particularly breakfast, sushi and Fish Restaurant was fabulous. The staff all go the extra mile, particularly in the all day bar. Rooms were OK but bungalow is a misleading description for what they are. Overall a great holiday and we have booked again for this year!
