“A clean two star hotel facing the beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

As usual I am writing this as a mature five star traveller accompanied by his wife.
We knew when we left Casa Delfino in Chania that we would be going down market in Sougia.
Sougia is a remote pebble grey beach in south west Crete.
It has a series of two star hotels along a road facing the beach.On the other side of the road there are mostly cafes then the organised beach then ocean.
It was quite busy mainly with backpackers and young families.
Dozens of campers set up at the eastern end of the beach with no apparent ablution blocks except possibly at a taverna/cafe in the camping area.
The four or five tavernas in the town were not remarkable despite rave reviews for two of them.
Santa Irene was clean ,daily housekeeping was good,staff friendly .
In the garden courtyard the effluent smell pervaded as with many hotels in this class.
We would not return to Sougia as Greece has many more attractive ,interesting locations and wonderful beaches elsewhere.
It cannot be used as a basis for exploring south west Crete due to its remote location.

Room Tip: Avoid garden room seek sea viewvroom

I first visited Sougia in the south of Crete almost 15 years ago and since then, I visit this wonderful place every summer season. This hotel is the best choice if you look for a very nice and calm place just a few meters from the beach. The rooms are very spacious and clean and provide all the conforts a visitor would wish, like TV, kitchenette, air condition, refrigerator and Internet access. You can also have a very good breakfast, lunch, light dinner and drinks at the hotel cafeteria with the best view of the attractive beach of Sougia. I highly recommend.
