Fodele Hotel: Your Adventure Holiday Citadel

As Fodele Beach & Water Park Resort stands tall on a commanding cliffside close to Heraklion, watching over the Cretan sea, with a chilled-out beach at its feet, three tranquil swimming pools on its back, and a luxurious wellness centre in its warm embrace, you could easily be mistaken into thinking that Fodele just provides you with a holiday of pure relaxation.

Of course, if you want nothing more than to relax, Fodele has you completely covered. But if you also crave an action-packed family holiday, full of adventure, Fodele is your perfect destination this summer.

The Best Hotel Water Park In Crete

Quench your thirst for thrills on the wildest and wettest rides in Crete at Fodele’s pristine water park! Boasting 7 kinds of waterslide and 6 fresh water pools, all exclusively available to you, the guests, it’s no wonder Fodele was named one of the world’s best water park hotels by Trivago.

Have fun with all the family on the colossal body slide and three multi-slides, where parents and children can sit with each other to enjoy the blistering plunge down the rides together. Feel weightless as you drop down the exhilarating compact, free-fall and kamikaze slides. Snake through the trees on a raft in both the pulsating raft slide and the perilous dark tube of the black hole slide – if you dare.

Younger children are also invited! Fodele hosts a delightful children’s area with a shallow pool and sparkling slides designed for those too small to enjoy the more imposing rides. So no-one in the family will miss out on an unforgettable experience at Fodele’s water park.

And don’t worry! The park is supervised by a team of specialist lifeguards who will help you operate the rides correctly, so children will be safe at all times.

A Haven for Sport Lovers

Rather stay dry on your active holiday? Don’t sweat it. The sports facilities at Fodele are truly magnificent, harbouring an impressive range of indoor and outdoor activities.

Get competitive with your whole family in a round of mini golf, on the basketball court, or in a match of doubles tennis on two first-class courts. Take up an exciting new sport on the unique archery court. Or feel the gentle sand on your feet in a casual game of volleyball or beach football on Fodele’s golden slice of the coast.

Stay cool inside with a game of table tennis or with a huge array of arcade games in the enthralling games room. Work out hard at the state-of-the-art gym equipped with brand new cardio and weight machines, where you can also take advantage of personal training, yoga and boxing sessions.

Prefer to revel in watersports at the beach? Race away into the azure expanse on an extreme jet ski! Benefit from some quality family time as you canoe together across the peaceful water. Alternatively, tether yourself to a motorboat and glide gracefully over the glistening waves on water skis, a wakeboard, a flyboard, or (perhaps less gracefully) on a banana boat, bound to have the whole family laughing uncontrollably as you fall off one by one.

Explore Mountain Peaks and Sea Depths

If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, take advantage of the excellent local activity companies, which provide affordable experiences to satisfy your burning need for adventure!

Embark on an accessible guided mountain bike tour with JoyRide-bike to explore Crete’s regal wilderness. Or, rent bikes and take your family on an expedition into the mesmeric mountains through miles of beautiful mountain bike terrain to discover the island’s natural treasures.

But if you’re not a keen cyclist, there are just as many secrets to be found on the Cretan seafloor. Fodele partners with the Stay Wet professional diving center to treat you to diving lessons for the whole family, while meeting the many inhabitants of the Mediterranean, from fish to starfish to octopuses. And, if you’re lucky, you might even encounter seahorses and dolphins too!

Fodele is truly the threshold to exploring every crevice of Crete’s natural wonders. Book now for an action-packed family holiday in Crete!
