We stayed at this hotel in June and were most impressed by the quick efficient check in and friendly welcome. The room was very clean with a fantastic view of the beautiful Istron Bay from our two balconies !!! We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the delicious range of food served in the evening at the beach restaurant.

Overall. Incredible views offset by a hotel that is stuck in the past. Small changes in décor and management vision would turn this hotel into a place to return to. Until then, the view doesn’t outweigh the negatives and I won't be returning. Positives • Exceptional view • Friendly hardworking staff • Clean • Nice beach • Restaurant by the... More

This hotel has a true Greek soul. Set in it's own stunning bay, it is typical Cretan hospitality. Some reviewers have said it is a little tired, but it has character and atmosphere and staff who have been there for years, making you feel part of their family. It is reasonably priced and a little away from the touristy areas,... More

A group of ten of us visited the Istron Bay Hotel at the beginning of May for one weeks stay. We had planned a trip to see the ancient Minoan sites of Crete, and this hotel was in a central location to the ones we wished to see. When we looked at this hotel and saw pictures of the setting... More

We stood here mid October, at the end of the season. The hotel was not desert like other places, nice atmosphere at dinner. Good value for the price with the half board solution. Dinner was both buffet (starters, saldas and desserts) and served (main courses). The very big pool and private beach are very nice. All the rest you need... More

We booked this hotel via Thomas Cook and are more than satisfied! Absolutely friendly staff (with very good German skills, English, etc.), an amazing view (from all rooms), tasty food and a car rental service directly from the hotel. The price/performance ratio was more than O.K.! We visited the hotel at the beginning of October and the main season ended... More

What a place, what a energy, what a lovely people!! Bit in the moment of renewal, but high end location, feeling, rest!! Isolated of all unpleasant and brutally chill full!! I've felt in love with this place!! If this is not going to heal you, I don't know what will.. I love it!! Don't miss this magic!!
