What a great place to relax and refresh, beautiful scenery, extremely friendly staff and an abundance of peace and quiet. The small pool is ideal for cooling off but you definitely need a car to visit any of the local places of interest. For us, 3 adults, it was perfect, the accommodation was cool, comfortable, and clean. Beakfast on the... More

We went there with Peter Sommer travels, who always find unique hotels. This place just cries out different. A cool place to sit with your G&T on the roof! Great views and all the rooms are different.

The suite was very expensive and small. It was also noisy. The food was delicious but expensive too. The service was very good. But generally we are disappointed. If the price was more logical we wouldn't be so disappointed.

Due to an overbooking at our touroperator (for a different hotel), we were so lucky that we had to stay a few nights at Cressa Ghitonia. The concept with the authentically restored typical old buildings is so attractive. It is like you are living in a small village, everything connected via small stairs and the little swimming pool in the... More

Perhaps I could say the sunsets of Santorini were more dramatic, or the crystal waters of seaside villages like Kastellorizo were more irresistible than in Crete -- but even with all of this taken into into account, my week at Cressa Ghitonia was and will remain the most memorable and enjoyable time I had in Greece.
