Enorme Lifestyle Beach Crete | Hotel Review

Hotel Review | The best adults only Hotel on Crete: Enorme Lifestyle Beach

How about a nice getaway in Europe? As we were planning this trip, we were not really sure where we should go. Greece, Spain or something totally different? So whilst looking around for a nice stay, by accident I found this newly opened hotel. First, I was a bit hesitant to book as it wasn’t open yet and therefore no reviews/ referral pictures/ Instagram stuff to look at. (My boyfriend and I can be pretty obsessed with reading reviews and looking at pictures before we book a hotel *lol). But as the homepage and description looked so amazing, we just gave it a try. Did we regret it? Let’s see after you read the details.. . 😉

The Enorme Lifestyle Beach Hotel & Environment

The Adult-Only hotel on Crete is located not far away from the Heraklion Airport which is a nice way to start the holidays as it is only a 15min drive. Located in the village of Gazi, the hotel lies directly at the beautiful Amoudara Beach. There is another Enorme Hotel next door (Enorme Armonia Beach), so you shouldn’t confuse these two. 😉 The Enorme Lifestyle hotel is furnished in light colors and wooden materials, which gives a unique “boho” character. I really loved the white & neutral colors as well as the mixture of Scandinavian and Mediterranean design elements.



Room – Accommodation

We started our stay in a classic double room on the first floor in one of the two buildings. On the ground floor and in between you will find smaller buildings where you can also book the Swim-Up rooms. These rooms have a direct pool access and are more spacey. I can definitely recommend booking these ones (preferably the 4000s and 7000s rooms).

That’s why we also booked an upgrade for two nights to stay in one of these swim-up rooms as they are sooo comfy! On the morning you can directly take a swim in your “own” pool (sharing it with 4-5 other rooms) and you can chill on your own sunbed. Apart from that, the only thing we were missing was a rack in the shower or some more space to store our clothes.

But nevertheless, I was more than happy to find a Nespresso coffee machine in each of the rooms (as the greek coffee can be a bit interesting sometimes 😉 ). The room are also beautifully furnished in neutral colors with a pop of turquoise which instantly gives you that Holidays-in-greek-feeling!

The hotel offers a half board which means that you can indulge in a big breakfast as well as many dinner options. The food is offered in a buffet so that you have plenty of options to choose from. The breakfast usually stays the same, offerings everything from English breakfast over cereals to salad and fruit. (Only thing which I was surprised about is that you needed to pay extra for water or a fresh orange juice).

During our stay of 5 nights, the dinner options changed every night with lots of different meals to try! My favorite were the many Greek meals like Souvlaki, Moussaka, Gyros, filled wine leaves, feta salad and so on. Also, I am a big fan of fish and seafood which they also had many different options. Also in the evening, you  needed to pay for your drinks extra (which is a common thing though if I remember correctly from our previous stays at hotels with half board.).

Beach & Pool Area

Ok so here we got another favorite part of mine: the amazing pool area and the nice beach of this hotel! The Enorme Lifestyle hotel itself has several pools (which belong to the according rooms/ swim-up rooms). At the very end, the biggest pool is open to any guest of the hotel plus you will find many sunbeds and chairs to relax. My favorite were of course the sunbeds as you can see also here. 😉

The beach is only one minute away from the pool, so I usually tanned at the pool but went for a dip into the ocean. (I just love to swim freely and feel the waves crashing.) Also at the beach, you will find many sunbeds and umbrellas if you prefer staying there. Also, there is a beach bar offering cold drinks and some snacks if you’re hungry during the day. Usually we shared a small meal in the early afternoon – our favorite was the gyros with Tzatziki. 😉

So I think you can literally feel how much we loved our stay at the Enorme Lifestyle Beach Hotel, right? 😉 We definitely had such an amazing time and will love to come back one day. Have you been to Crete yet? And can you imagine visiting Crete and this hotel? ♥

    Overall, the Enorme Lifestyle Beach hotel sounds like a fabulous place to take a holiday or vacation to! It seems like it has everything you would need to be able to spend your days relaxing by the beach or pool. I would definitely book one of those swim-up rooms if I went. I have seen so many pictures of people having pools or access to the beach right from their hotel room on Instagram, I am dying to take a bite of it. I too like to read reviews or look at photos of a place before trying it out. The same can be said for restaurants. It is a bit weird, however, that you have to pay for water or orange juice! I hope one day soon I get to visit Greece 🙂

      Thx Isabella and yes – you should definitively go 🙂
