Thalori is fantastic and great owners! As mentioned by many other reviewers this village is on a mountain. In order to reach the location make sure you have rented a proper car, especially if you are with 4 or 5. We ordered a Golf-like car and got a Fiat punto 60hp which was a disaster. This is a unique location,... More

We had marvellous Cretan hospitality in this beautiful place. I stayed two nights as part of a group tour. On our first night we sat drinking, talking with the owner (Marcos) & listening to him playing his mandola until around 2am; the next afternoon Marcos & his father gave us a long tour of the area, meeting locals (including the...

The highlight of our tour around Crete - this place is magical. Nail-biting drive up the mountain to get there, a traditional village where 14 houses have been beautifully combined to form a resort, we were greeted by roaring fire, meat cooking on spit, mandolin player and the honest warm hospitality of the hosts. If you bring some food with... More

I have just returned from a 15 day stay here. I found the hospitality of everyone in the place to be exceptional. Perhaps if a previous reviewer had spent a little time to find out people's names and attempted a little Greek she would have had a different experience. The two waiters are called Yannis and Costas and often played... More

We went to stay in September. The weather was great, not too hot. The wind blew strongly at times, keeping the temperature down. The new swimming pool added a beautiful touch. The water temperature was closer to 10° than to 20°. It seems a great spot to go walking from. There are three people who speak English. An elderly gentleman... More

Excellent location with unique view to Kofinas mountain.. the sacred mount top.. well organised excursions by the hotel to various points of interest either on foot or by jeep. Good and healthy food consisting of local products, warm and hospitable service.

During my recent visit to Crete and staying at Residence Mourtzanakis, one evening a friend of my host Makos Skordalakis dropped by for dinner. A charming individual in his mid thirties and a real Cretan, could have been a character from one of stories of the famous Cretan writer Kazanzakis. Markos tall with long flowing black hair and a matching... More

Visiting Crete we decided to see beautiful place Thalori in Kapetaniana. Time did not allow us to make a trip, it was raining but the atmosphere was excellent. If you want to stop the breath out of sight, if you want homemade Cretan cuisine then this is the right place for you. Do not expect high quality service and expert... More

We spent four nights with my family in a place that I never thought that existed. Newly renovated old stone houses in the small village of Kapetaniana at South Iraklio Crete, surrounded by the untouched Asterousia mountains. The food was probably the best Cretan cuisine that you can have. Salt from the rocks of the seaside, milk, cheese and meat... More
