Very recommendable quiet beach hotel, excellent value for money. The entrance area, the lobby the restaurant, the poolbar... everything is very nice designed. Everywhere there are cozy sitting areas where one gladly stayed. Everything is super clean and tidy. Beautiful garden, pleasant staff with fun at the work... Bus station, plenty of shops, tavernas and pubs in the immediate area. We can only recommend this hotel.
One of the most beautiful hotels, in a very nice garden and comfortable rooms. Ideal for people who are not into large ( Skyscrapers) hotels .

Wonderful small individual hotel, very well maintained , with a wonderful view over the sea. We appreciated the pleasant and competent care, the ambience, the extremely clean and comfortable rooms, the breakfast service on the terrace - short : our expectations the Orpheas resort is in all areas met! We felt during our stay very comfortable and in good hands.
Those seeking peace, comfort and a brilliant atmosphere searches, is right here.

I will start this review by strongly recommending this unique hotel to anyone who might be interested in north Crete. Orpheas resort is located direct to the sea on the north-western side of the island, 40 min drive from the Chania airport . A lot of the resort is based around all inclusive resort hotels so this stylish, chilled and authentic place was a breath of fresh area.
A perfect boutique hotel in a perfect location.
The hotel has a beach bar that serves lunch til almost 18.00.The service was perfect and the food was all freshly prepared and perfectly presented.
By the main pool there was also a beautiful garden area,with sofas, great place to relax with a bottle of wine.
much more than a 'hotel' we look forward to our return

ATTENTION: There are some of negative reviews on here which does not reflect the truth. The staffs from reception to waiters and bar staff are really lovely. Excellent food, great choice in the main restaurant. The dining room is large enough and never have to wait for tables, the waiters are very friendly and do a brilliant job. Pools and garden well kept and cared for, PERFECT sandy beach. We had a fantastic stay, we cannot fault the hotel in anyway and would defiantly recommend the Orpheas resort. If you are looking for a beach hotel in West Crete this is the place to go.

Great location just off the main Chania to Rethymno road and just a stroll through the hotel grounds to a good quality sandy beach. Great for swimming as sea is warm (was in Sep anyway) and clear and only chest deep for some way out. Only slight downside re beach is a stony strip just as you enter the water which is rather tough on the feet, but sand for the rest of the way out. This hotel does not pretend to be glitzy or particularly smart instead it provides a relaxed homely atmosphere with friendly & helpful staff throughout, and exceptionally so in the reception area. The buffet style food is adequate without being exceptional but there is plenty of choice. Rooms are fairly basic but cleaned every day with fresh towels provided daily if required. Our ground floor location only had views of the hotel wall next door but this was no problem as we we didn't spend much time inside. A cafe/bar in the grounds provides an adequate all-day selection of food & drinks at reasonable cost for those spending the day on the beach or by the pool. Opposite the hotel entrance is a reasonable selection of gift shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants but we found no night life to speak of and as there was no in-hotel entertainment, early nights were the order of the day. We picked up a car and made our own way to the hotel but although we knew its approximate location we had difficulty finding it as the only external identification is a very small nameplate beside the main entrance. For those in similar difficulty it is between the well signed Vantaris Beach and Happy Days hotels. A car is certainly an asset as the village itself was too small to hold our attention for long but we were able to visit nearby Georgeopolis, the much larger local capital Chania, the beautful & moving Allied War Cemetary at Souda Bay as well as taking an interesting drive across the mountains to catch a ferry to the unique village of Loutro. Crete is a beautiful island and given more than 7 days we could certainly have found many other places to visit. In summary, the Orpheus is a great place if you are looking for a laid-back, relaxing holiday.
