Our first night in Crete we wanted to stay on the NW side of the island and Nautilus Bay was a great value with amazing views only 5m walk to dozens of restaurants and cafes. The hotel was 100% full, but the pool was never crowded and the hotel is beachfront. The staff was friendly and helpful with any needs.... More

We stayed here 2 weeks at this beautiful hotel with its own lovely sandy beach right in front. The room at the 2nd floor was modern, clean, spacious and even had a little kitchen. The bathroom was very good and we also appreciated a lot the balcony with the nice sea view. Breakfast was simple but okay. Wifi was not... More

Rooms are spacious and modern. There is no fan in the bathroom so it gets hot and stuffy. The tv is tiny, really needed to be bigger. Air con is sufficient (although it dripped water twice and made a puddle) but a bit more power would make the room more comfortable. Wi-if is terrible and pretty much non existent. So... More

We stayed over Easter 2015 and enjoyed a peaceful relaxing stay. The room was huge with modern decor, large balcony and sea views. We had a fridge and hot plate with dishes etc. The beds were very comfortable and the staff were very helpful. Kissamos was very quiet as it was early in the season so we spent several happy...

A nice balcony overlooking the road and sea beyond on 2nd floor this time. Breakfast was ok. Could be better but the buffet suited us. Hotel is situated at the end of the cove where... More

The room, bed and sea view balcony were faultless Lovely staff, especially Yannis However the breakfast was very poor - the most disappointing and basic we have ever had in a Greek hotel. The orange juice was a watery squash and meat and cheese processed Very little choice and coffee tasteless This really lets the hotel down. Very blunt message... More

We had only four nights in Crete and spent two nights in this hotel. We were sorry we hadn't booked all four nights there. It is very reasonably priced and we were not expecting too much when we arrived. From the first greeting to the last goodbye this hotel was an example of what a hotel should be. The staff... More

We stayed in this hotel as a group of 33 persons for 10 days. The accommodations are clean and simple. Each room is spacious and has a kitchen. The location is excellent for access to the downtown, busses, and waterfront. Meals were served buffet style from restaurant and food was very good and filling for a group of active people.... More
