We didn't stay her but ate here twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner. Both meals were very good and way above the average Cretan meal. The price was good only slightly above far worse restaurants. Recommended for fish.

I adore staying at this hotel..the family are so friendly,I can go straight into the sea for a swim before breakfast and then have breakfast at the café I have been coming here for 25 years and it really takes some beating. As well as the well appointed rooms, the family runs the café Vortsala just around the corner on... More

I couldn't understand why Oriental Bay was not on any 'top ten' list for Paleochora restaurants until I found it listed under accommodation. I'm afraid I don't know what the rooms are like but the restaurant is lovely. They offer the traditional menu you might expect plus specials. The service is always excellent - they didn't even grimace too much... More

Oriental Bay Hotel is situated slightly away from the main town, which is good as it can get noisy in the town (village) - it is situated on the sea front. It is a short and very pleasant walk by the sea into the main part of Paleochora with its tavernas and restaurants - Room was just fine - typical... More

My husband and I go quite often to Paleochora for holidays and the place we usually stay was full, so we decided for oriental bay. We had been there before for lunch and dinner, and really loved their food, but never at the hotel, and we were also so happy to have chosen this place for staying. The owners (sorry... More

Stayed two nights in high season August at Oriental Bay. Wished we had stayed longer. In the whole month that we travelled the Greek islands, we never stayed in another hotel that had the same level of cleanliness, access, view, size, and amenites for the price we paid. Really, we could have stayed the whole month here and it would... More

We arranged a room in hotel vostro, but when we came the guy gave us a room in oriental bay. I guess he owned both or they had close relation both hotels. Anyway, it did not make a difference for us.
