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. This was in largest... More

This is a very sweet hotel on a hill top in tiny Cretan hamlet. Be forewarned, it's a walk up and it's not easy. The tiny pool is perfect for just a dip and the views are great. Anything is a drive from here. The staff were lovely and accommodating.

I wanted to write another review, since we returned to Cressa Ghitonia this year, too. There are a lot of things that are going smoother this year (and some not so much, but there seems to be a will to make things better). The place still looks stunning, the pool is the absolut relaxing spot, and the stuff is great.... More

I gave this place 5 stars and that is particularly because of some of the staff. The place is nice, interestingly designed, comfortable, original, clean, all the basics are there but it's so much more. The food at the restaurant is AMAZING.

Well the first thing that got my attention was the architecture of this hotel. Many small traditional houses all around are making Cressa Ghitonia a very sweet and picturesque place to relax and enjoy yourself and Greece. It is like you are seeking for a treasure, because till you find the place some villages of Crete almost scares you because... More
