The discount:

We advertise this offer at up to 24% off. We calculate this discount percentage based on the rates we offer compared to a price check of other online travel providers offering the same product and travel date. An example of our maximum discount is:

On 01/06/2019, leaving from London Gatwick, two people may book a five-night stay in a Standard Double room with sea view (inclusions as noted above) and will pay £499 per person, per stay, compared to a third party online rate of £657 per person, per stay. Based on this calculation, by booking with Secret Escapes, you will save 24%.

The discounts, price and availability stated above were checked on 06/12/2018.

Due to fluctuations in other travel providers’ prices, the discount advertised will not always be the same discount on the “from” price.

The lead price shown is subject to availability, which will naturally decrease during the course of a sale as the relevant dates are booked.

The offer is 100% non-refundable and date changes are not possible once the booking has been made.

All-inclusive holiday at a five-star beachfront hotel on the northern coast of Crete, with panoramic sea views – includes all travel and airport lounge access

Perched on a hillside overlooking the Aegean Sea, the sophisticated soft-pink CHC Athina Palace Resort & Spa is a lovely five-star spot for a sun-drenched break in Crete. Whether you’re drinking in the views from the poolside terrace or splashing around on the shingle beach, you’ll be back to your summer self in no time at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winner. If lazing around isn't your style, there’s scuba diving, sailing and snorkelling all on your doorstep.

After a hard day on the beach, head to the spa for a little pampering. Once you’re utterly relaxed, potter down to the resort’s restaurant and see what’s on the changing menu for the evening. With all your meals and drinks included, it’d be rude not to round off your day with a nightcap overlooking the water. Bliss.
