“Excellent Hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Nautilus Bay Hotel is a very relaxing hotel which is perfect to spend three or four days. The location itself is also very good and close to small and cozy towns/villages. The staff is really friendly. The breakfast, if included, is also good.

We spent a wonderful week here in Western Crete whilst walking with Stelios and Angela of Strata Tours. The hotel was spacious with large rooms,containing cooker, sink and fridge, great bathroom, generous balcony with sea views, good sized pool and friendly owner, reception, bar and restaurant staff. Everywhere was clean, tidy and well maintained. Ideally located close to the best beach in Kissamos, centre of the small town and at the end of the promenade with a choice of tavernas with excellent food based on local produce. Great feel to the place and welcoming Greek hospitality. Super walking, people, farms, gorges, archaeology and the challenge of doing the Samaria Gorge again - yes made it

We stayed here for a week in late September. Had a great studio apartment with a lovely sea view. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Yannis and George the owner. Fab location with the sandy beach a very short walk. Free sunbeds on the beach. Pool a nice size and lunch at the poolside bar was always great (if a little on the large size at times). Easy walk into the town centre with lots of restaurants within easy walking distance. A good base for sightseeing, walking or just chilling.

My family had a paradise holidays in this hotel: it is vey new construction, very clean, with a private beach over the most beautiful coast of Crete. Walking distance from the most caracteristic reastaurant street of the small village of Kissamos, 36 km from Chania airport.

Nautlius Bay is a lovely small hotel located right on the beach. The rooms are large with a kitchen area housing a fridge, cooker and sink. Bathrooms are a good size with bath and shower attachment. We had a great seaview. The whole hotel is very clean, rooms are cleaned daily, and fresh towels given. The pool is a good size for the size of hotel - although you do have to take your own beach towel for the sunloungers. Food is great here, the continental breakfast kept being replenished and was all fresh. Other restaurants, bars etc are about a 5 -10 min walk. The hotel owner (George) and staff are amazing! Nothing is too much trouble. You arrive as hotel guests and leave feeling as if you are part of the family.

My wife and I stayed here for a week as friends of ours were getting married and the whole week was great. The hotel is lovely and clean and the rooms are very spacious with a small kitchen facility and fridge. A decent pool and a little children's one and as soon as you walk down from the main terrace you are on the beach. What stands out is that the owner, George and his fantastic staff treat you more like family than guests and nothing is too much trouble for them. Plenty of restaurants and bars are only a five minute walk away.

I stayed 1 week at Nautilus Bay hotel in May 2012. And it was great. The appartment was well-equipped with furniture, kitchenette, kitchen tools etc. Our balcony had sea view, which I expect that all appartments must have because of the hotel location. Further more the hotel has a pool and the beach just at is feet. The beach is sandy with only very few stones compared to the other end of Kissamos where it is mainly stony.

The hotel lies on the sea front of Kissamos only 10 min. walk to the town centre and even shorter to the restaurants. However the hotel it self has a restaurant which is also worth a visit. The breakfast was included in our price and compared to Greek standards it was really good.

The hotel is perfectly located for those who do not wish to stay in a touristic village where normal greek life is at standby in high season. Most touristc go no further than Kolimbari. In the area there is lots of possibilities for sailing and swimming in the sea - Bálos is really worth the trip. Also the nearby mountains are easy to visit and the owner Georgio was very kind to help us with all arrangements and even drive us where no bus went or if he didn't think we should pay for a taxi.
