“Excellence in Kissamos- choose no other!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

There really is no other word but excellent. What sets apart Aphrodite and her family's hotel is the personal touch they impart by living there themselves. Breakfast has a wonderful personal touch and was perfect after my morning run on the beach. The rooms were clean and spacious and they provide beach towels with the name of the hotel embossed. Another important point regarding the location of this hotel is that it is located on the beach in a horseshoe-shaped cove 500M in length with a set of beach chairs dedicated to patrons. Many of the other hotels in town do not have the beach access that these more western-located hotels have. For those without a car, there is a bus stop at the KTEL station just 150M from the hotel. Perfect for those without a car! The people of Crete are wonderful and welcoming and the owners and staff of Aphrodite Beach Hotel do not disappoint. I will be returning to Kissamos and when I do I will be staying at the Aphrodite Beach Hotel - there is no question.

I spent five wonderful days there with my wife and two teenage boys. The owner and his family were fantastic. The hotel is in a perfect location a little off the beaten path on the western part. Close to Chania (lovely town) Close to Balos and Elafonisi beach. Great restaurant next door as well. Very clean and comfortable., Will return.. One word of advise, get a room towards the front of the hotel, back rooms have bad views.

A lovely place with warmhearted people. Clean and comfortable rooms and plenty of space to relax in the bar, staring at the beautiful beach. The kindness of the hosts, as well, makes it feel like home.

We stayed here for a week (15 Oct - 21 Oct) and we are very pleased. First of all the weather was fine, we swam every day. The sea is fantastic. Kissamos is a great place to have your peaceful sea vacation, because it is not so touristic yet.
We loved this family-run hotel very much. Everyone was very grateful. Rooms are clean and comfortable (but mattress), and have a mini built in kitchen. Bathroom is ok.
Standard breakfast is served at the morning (tea, coffee, sweets, cheese, juice, pudding, omelet).
Hotel (and Kissamos at all) is very close to the best beaches - Balos, Falasarna, Elafonisi. These are must visit beaches if you are in Crete. We rent a car to Balos. It takes about an hour by rocky road, but it does absolutely worth. There is a bus to Falasarna (~20 min).
A week is not enough there, and we decided to back in a few years.
I absolutely recommend this hotel to everyone - family, couples, friends, but pets are not allowed.

Stayed here in October after reading the good reviews on here. Was a perfect place to stay situated on a beautiful sandy beach . Should be number 1 on here!!! The apartments were spotlessly clean and big. We had a sea view apartment where we had amazing views. Perfect location lots of choices of places to eat. Couldn't have asked for a better holiday. Having beach towels included was a lovely touch.

We stayed here end of September for one week and are already about to book for next year.
Rooms were beautifully clean every day by friendly staff .The owners and their family really make you feel at home/relaxed immediately you arrive.Always there with a smile and helping to make your stay as stress free as they can.The generous buffet breakfasts pretty much cover most peoples needs and all very fresh.The beautiful and quiet beach is a brisk 10 metre walk from the hotel so no need to worry about what you forgot to bring from your room.There are two restaurants within 150 mtrs along the beach and a further 250mtrs brings you to a selection of beach front restaurants which we visited on many occasions during our stay.What a super clean, friendly, family run hotel in the perfect spot to relax. See you next year Aphrodite Hotel
