Pilot Beach Resort

Pilot Beach Resort is on the shores of Peristeras Beach in Georgioupolis, Crete. With a background of typical Cretan olive and cypress trees, the gardens and terraces lead down to the hotel's private stretch of beach. The hotel also has four lagoon-style outdoor pools, as well as a separate pool for children. There's a sixth swimming pool in the spa suite and an outdoor whirlpool on the terrace. The hotel's spa also has a Turkish bath and a sauna, and you can book a massage. You can join in with aerobics and aqua aerobics classes, or a game of beach volleyball, all organised by the hotel staff. The hotel has tennis courts and a gym, and the team can arrange water activities for you, such as snorkelling and water skiing. The hotel has five restaurants serving a range of different cuisines. There are three bars; a sports bar, a lobby bar, and a cocktail bar that overlooks the hotel's terraces and the Aegean Sea. If you need to pick up any holiday essentials or to shop for a beach or lakeside picnic, there's a mini market at Pilot Beach Resort. Georgioupolis is within walking distance, and the village square is lined with tavernas and cafÈs. Georgioupolis Beach is a 7km stretch of sandy shore with Blue Flag status. The shuttle bus service goes from the hotel to Georgioupolis via Lake Kournas, and the hotel also runs a regular road train service. If you want to explore more of the island, you can hire a car through the hotel.

Georgioupolis is 1.6km from Pilot Beach. There's a small fishing harbour at the mouth of the River Almyros, leading out into the bay of Georgioupolis. There's also a choice of places to eat, drink and shop along the road to the beach, or you can take a boat trip from the harbour. Crete's only freshwater lake, Lake Kournas is 4.2km away from the hotel. There are little beaches around its shores, where you can swim or hire a pedalo. There are also tavernas by the lake. The hotel is between the city of Chania, 40km away, and Rethymnon Town, 24km away. Chania has a Venetian harbour and a long waterfront lined with restaurants, behind which is a maze of narrow old streets and a mix of Greek, Italian and Turkish architecture. Medieval Rethymnon also has an historic harbour, and a choice of places to eat, drink and shop. You can catch a boat from there for a day trip to the island of Santorini.

Pilot Beach has four buffet restaurants, all with outside seating. Between them they provide breakfast, late breakfast, lunch and dinner, offering Greek, Italian and international cuisine. The a la carte restaurant is open for dinner, serving seafood and sushi. There are two bars, a beach bar and a pool bar which in the evenings becomes a lovely lounge.

There's a kids' club (ages 4-12), and a kids' swimming pool with a pirate ship and an octopus slide. The hotel has darts, table tennis and pool.

Rooms have a mini fridge, a safe and individually controlled air conditioning or central heating. There's also high-speed Wi-Fi and a TV.

We stayed at Pilot beach resort for a week and it was an unforgettable stay! We and our two children 6 and 3 y/o had an amazing experience! The facilities are welcoming and clean! The food was amazing, greek cuisine with fresh ingredients and a delightful variation! The shows in the evening were very appreciated by our kids and us and created fun memories for our kids! Last but not least the staff was incredibly professional, helpful and friendly! We have no remarks whatsoever! We can higly recommend Pilot beach for your family vacation!
