Positive points: Nice views, stylishly developed rooms and restaurant area, friendly staff, good place for hiking, peaceful place. Negative points: -Woodworms in the rooms making terrible noise that our friends couldn't sleep. -Too expensive, both the restaurant, (value for money) and the room (80euros/night), they charge 4.5 euros for two slices of bread with butter and honey OR butter and...

My experience in Thalori is of mixed feelings. The surrounding area and the premises of the property were in pretty good shape, however the service we got during our stay was really bad. - Heating: As soon as we got in the apartment we noticed that the heating was not working and the apartment was freezing cold. We informed the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Thalori. The facilities are top notch with an attentive staff and breath taking views. We have travelled all over western Crete and found this place one of our favorites. Our room was huge, really a small apartment. The decor was beautiful, the design and furnishings were well done and very attractive. The infinity swimming... More

We didn't stay in this hotel, just visited the restaurant. You're up in the mountains and with a gergeous view on the mountains and sea. I got an extremely relaxed feeling when I was there, it was so peaceful. (mind you it was high season in august) The service was very good and really friendly, and they have a beautiful... More

My wife, son and step daughter recently visited Thalori. We had a fabulous time. It is like going back in time but taking the modern luxuries with you. The houses have been wonderfully restored but with the addition of bathrooms and kitchens, in keeping with the architecture of the buildings but allowing 21st century living. The infinity pool area and... More

Thalori @ Kapetaniana is the best experience for those who want to feel the old and traditional way of Cretan lifestyle. I visit Crete since I am a child. Every summer for the last 38 years. This year I spend 2 days at Thalori and felt like being at home again with my grandparents. The little houses are very well... More

We had a great time here in this restored old village. It is a bit remote in the mountains. We love that. Just a few rooms, a nice pool, great view and refreshing wind in the mountains. You have to drive through the hills. Easy to get in a normal car (we had a Citroen c1). We ate in the... More

Beautiful village built in the traditional Cretan style, this is truly a one of a kind experience. The houses are cosy and comfortable and the fireplace was set up ready to be lit. The staff are friendly and the views magnificent. The only thing we were not 100% happy with was the food at the restaurant which we did not... More
