Nearby Attractions

Mirabello Beach & Village is in a fantastic location, on a lovely sandy beach just a 20-minute walk from Agios Nikolaos. This likeable little town has several distinct waterfront areas and is full of buzzing bars and restaurants, along with plenty of souvenir shops.

The former fishing village of Elounda is a 10-minute drive north from the hotel, another laid-back and picturesque little town with some pretty beaches and a beautiful natural harbour.

Crete’s most famous archaeological attraction is the Palace of Knossos, the former capital of the ancient Minoans, which is about an hour’s drive away. Knossos is just outside the island’s capital, Heraklion (Iraklio), where you’ll find some decent shopping and lively nightlife, including several LGBT-friendly venues.


There are 311 rooms in total, divided into two distinct areas and linked by a pedestrian bridge. The Mirabello Hotel is where you’ll find the main facilities and more family-friendly accommodation, while the Mirabello Village offers a more peaceful ambience, including secluded bungalows and maisonettes with shared pool access. All rooms have a private balcony or terrace, satellite TV, WiFi, mini bar, safe and tea/coffee making facilities.

The extensive facilities include the main outdoor pool, a kids’ club and pool, three tennis courts and watersports including scuba diving, snorkelling, waterskiing, sailing and wakeboarding. There is also an excellent spa and wellness centre, which features 8 treatment rooms, sauna, Jacuzzi and Hammam, plus a fitness centre and beauty salon.

A host of buffet and à la carte dining options run the gamut from traditional Cretan fare to authentic Italian, along with rotating themed buffets at the main restaurant, Sirens. There are also six bars and lounges spread around the resort, including two beach bars and two pool bars.

All-Inclusive Value

It’s well worth upgrading to the all-inclusive plan at Mirabello Beach & Village, with an excellent range of restaurants to choose from. The main Sirens restaurant puts on regular themed buffets and a Champagne breakfast on Sunday, while Elia is a refined Italian restaurant and the Grill House offers a menu of tasty barbecued fish and meat. Perhaps our favourite option, however, is the atmospheric Kafenion, modelled on a typical Cretan coffeehouse. Here you can enjoy authentic local mezze and a large selection of ouzo and raki.
