Everything you could want in a hotel- and more.
Perhaps my new favorite hotel in the world there is nothing negative I can say about the Megaron. We were there twice for a few days each and they went above and beyond. The landmark building faces the sea and our rooms had balconies to help enjoy it. High ceilings, quality fixtures, a spacious room and blackout curtains if you felt like sleeping late (we didn’t). Easy private parking leads up to the luxurious public space and for some reason the same dog was sleeping at the entrance our entire stay. Check in was easy and we were made to feel welcome. The staff is extraordinarily helpful and friendly with a special shout out to Irena, whose efficient positive energy made breakfast perfection and our several little requests seemed to be her pleasure to fulfill. Afternoon tea setup in our room when we’d return, little pastries sprinkled about, slippers and those charming little towels on the floor by the bed so your feet don’t track anything in - five stars and then some. We arrived early in the morning so our room was not ready. Rather than sit and wait the concierge called around to find a winery that was open and we went off exploring some fine Cretan wine. You could not ask for a better location, nor a better hotel. I’d return to Crete just to stay there again.

A lovely hotel with really friendly staff
The Megaron is a beautiful hotel with great views over the harbour, particularly from the lovely rooftop terrace with its swimming pool. Our room was excellent, with everything we could want, and the staff were so friendly and welcoming you almost felt they were family! The hotel is perfectly placed for exploring the interesting city of Megaron and the bus station (very modern) is conveniently close for making visits further afield. In addition, we took a fast Sea Jets ship from the harbour for a brilliant day out on Santorini. The hotel breakfasts were the best I have experienced in any hotel- so much choice, with lovely home-made and locally sourced food. It was hard to stop eating and we barely needed lunch! Altogether, it was a most delightful and memorable stay, which I would recommend to anyone.

Amazing breakfast!

Too short a stay!
Almost perfect one night stay. Very comfortable, nicely designed room. We appreciated the upgrade to sea view. Staff were superbly welcoming, most notably the wonderful lady at our early breakfast. Only one drawback - there was occasional airplane noise, although it did appear to stop between midnight and 6am.

Wonderful stay!!
The Megaron hotel is one of the nicest I ever stayed in. The checkin process was extremely easy. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed. It had a large tub--with a marbled base--so nice to know safety of the guests was considered. There was a daily "turn-down" service with chocolates and a mat to put your feet on when you left the bed! The daily breakfast was WELL appointed. So many choices--if you leave hungry, it is your own fault. Everyone at the hotel looked to make your stay a memorable one--and they succeeded!
