Staff very helpful and rooms cleaned regularly. Driving in Crete very easy some did some of the big site - but also... More

An absolutely amazing place to stay. When I entered the hotel it was like I saw all of the island in there! The hotel offers amazing views to the sea and the endless sky. The sunny balcony of the hotel and the trees and flowers that are everywhere really made me feel I'm in paradise. And the countless stars were... More

Chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor comments that we fully reconfirm. Ideal base to visit eastern part of Crete: Mirabello gulf, Siteia and Paleokastro. Don’t forget to pop in Vai beach: you can have swim in October! Hotel was in line with our expectations: spacious room, really nice sea view room. Efficient, regular room service. Fully deserves the star ratings.... More

Clean, spacious, extremely accommodating and friendly staff; food is generous and international to cater for all visitors. Lovely beach just a few minutes walk straight from the hotel. If I visit this part of Crete again, this is definitely the place I will stay.

Back to Porto Belissario, It’s lovely to have your “own” beach, it’s lovely to have a fantastic room with the best sea view in Crete, it’s lovely to meet this friendly hotel staff. We love this hotel!!! Tip: visit Ferma during September.or October. The weather is fantastic and the sea worm!

The hotel is located in the Ferma area near the city of Ierapetra in Crete, about 1 hour and 45 minutes from Heraklion airport. The town is cute and full of restaurants and small shops. The hotel is located in Ferma about 15 minutes’ drive from the town. Completely renovated, the rooms are large, with wonderful views of the water.... More

If its relaxation and peace and quiet you are seeking this is the place. I spent 8 great days with my family at this hotel and truly relaxed. Firstly its a small hotel of about 20 rooms so there are not many guests even at peak times. The pool is magnificent, extremely well maintained and the private beach is great... More
