Radisson Blu Beach Resort Milatos Crete
Set on the edge of the Aegean Sea, Radisson Blu Beach Resort is surrounded by turquoise waters, with its own private beach, begging you to soak up that warm Grecian sun. And it’s a showstopper, with soft white sands and crystal clear waters, perfect for a spot of snorkelling. And when you’re not kicking back on the seafront, you’ve got five glistening swimming pools, including one for kids, complete with a pirate ship and water slides, as well as an elegant hotel spa to enjoy.
During the day you can take part in the hotel-run activities, including tennis, yoga, beach volley and basketball. There’s an action-packed kids club and playground to keep tiny tots happy. After dark, you can watch the family-friendly entertainment, with live shows, dancers and DJs bringing the good vibes. The exact programme will be advertised in the hotel’s reception.
When it comes to gastronomy, the hotel pulls out all the stops. Wake up to their signature breakfast buffet in Brasserie Mosaic. Alternatively, start the day with a traditional Cretan meal at Ariadni, with ingredients sourced from small producers on the island. At lunchtime choose between rustic pizza, pasta and Mediterranean Cuisine. All three reopen for dinner but the Italian Deli is closed on Monday evenings.
For waterfront eats, check out On the Rocks BBQ, dishing up charcoal-grilled meats and seafood, while you take in the magnificent sunsets. It’s open from 7-10pm in summer, but closed Mondays. More light bites, burgers, salads and tasty cocktails can be found at Payot Bar during the day (9am to midnight).
If you book All Inclusive you’ll benefit from three a la carte lunches or dinners for a stay of seven nights. Bellavue is not included in the All Inclusive package. Although, if you do want to treat yourselves, it’s the perfect spot for a romantic evening. Here you can sip champagne and tuck into show stopping recipes designed in collaboration with Michelin-star chef Yves Mattagne.
As for beverages, you can top yourself up with cold coffees, fruit juices and ice cream, over at either the Olivia or Wet Pool Bar (open in summer). And when you really want to unwind, make a beeline for the Adult Only Chill Out, complete with plush sunbeds and yoga mats.
All well-appointed rooms feature a 42”-65” interactive satellite television, high-speed Wi-Fi, a mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities and modern amenities. Whether you opt for a Junior Suite or treat yourself to a Premium Swim Up, you’ll be met with fresh Mykonian interiors and comfy beds. If you want to push the boat out, book a villa with your very own private whirlpool.
When you’re ready to see the sights, you have two picture-perfect villages on either side of the hotel, Milatos and Sissi. Stroll through the vineyards, explore the ancient cave, or soak up the history at the Minoan Palace of Malia. For day trips a little further afield, you could visit the Lassithi Plateau, aka Zeus’ birthplace, one of the most memorable attractions on the island. Steeped in Greek mythology and offering plenty of photo opportunities, you’ll see thousands of towering white windmills, the stalactite-laden cave, Psychro, and the beautiful Dikti Mountains in the foreground. Once you’ve explored the landscape, there are twenty Cretan villages to explore, most notably Agios Georgios and Agios Konstantinos for their famous monasteries and churches.
If the kids are looking for thrills and spills, just a 27km drive away is the largest water park in Crete, Acqua Plus Water Park. You’ll have 50 different slides, as well as games and a scenic lazy-river cruise to keep the whole gang busy.
