                                This hotel is certainly not a five star hotel but rather a three star (and in best case three star plus). Breakfast and buffet very poor. The hotel should simply be downgraded and it is contradiction to fair marketing to market it as a five star hotel.

                                The reception was perfect, the staff at the reception has been very kind and helpful. The food was very good, you can eat a la carte or buffet, the Moussaka of the maitre Andreas was the best I have ever eaten in Greece. I have been there with kids, there is a nice kid-room provided with equipment. Thanks to the maitre we had the possibility to get some special food for our little kid well cooked. I definitely recommend this hotel.

                                Asterion is one of the best places I visit in Greece.The staff is specially frriendly and you feel a family atmosphere.The hotel is far from the noice,if you need disco,go in Platania.The Koralia restaurant is good and you are welcome by Andrea,there is a buffet ,cost22euros ,there is a small taverna call"East of Eden "beside.The village of Maleme is 15minutes walk.Asterion is a place you want to go back.....

                                Our time here was fantastic, the staff were lovely, and the hotel is set on a quaint little beach with many tavernas tucked away within walking distance. It felt much more traditional and remote than the bigger touristy hotels. Our room was huge, with a separate living-dining area, and a big balcony. For the price compared to other places we stayed in, it was great.

                                It is not luxurious, but fantastic value.

                                We spent 2 weeks at teh asterion with 3 children, 12,6,4 years old. This hotel has a great pool area and is right on the beach. We had 2 fantastic weeks with sun, swimming and total relaxation. The hotel is not very close to any shops or restaurant which was unfortunte as the taxies were on strike. The dinner buffert is a good alternative to the restaurant. All in all we had a very good time as the overall facilites, sevice and people working there were very good. We will come back to the Asterion Hotel.

                                Like with all hotels there are a few thing that could have been improved, like the beds being softer, very hard to sleep on for 2 weeks. The restaurant would be expected to be better at a 5 star hotel. The buffet and the reaurant servers more or less the same food which makes it a little boring after a while. There should have been a better play/entertainment area for childeren. The payroom is a joke.

                                The hotel is located in a quiet place, away from "busy" Platanias.The sea is only a few steps from the swimming pool. The hotel staff (all of them) is very caring, polite and friendly, ready anytime to serve you, especially the girls in the reception and maitre Andreas. We had a private swimming pool up on the terrace and we really enjoyed our stay. We thank the hotel management as we were upgrated from the junior to the superior suite. We had a great time and relaxed holidays !

                                The buffet breakfast was sufficient, the buffet in hb basis was delicious, yet it could have more variety. In the restaurant ala carte we ate 4 times, the quality of the materials was on the top (very fresh),the food well-cooked and very tasty, although it could have more traditional or cretan main plates. The rooms could have one more provision: free internet (wi-fi). Also, the two superior suites with the private swimming pools on the terrace would be excellent if there was more privacy, as between the swimming pools there was a separating wooden railing which you could see through (sometimes for other people, maybe this is not embarrassing...).

                                Small family run hotel, on the beach, good food.

                                Front entrance/reception very hard to find especially at night. No Tea /coffee facility in the rooms. Breakfast finishes too early at 9.30am
