My husband and I visited this beautiful boutique hotel looking to find something quiet and pretty to start our vacation. We were so wonderfully surprised to experience one of the most unique and special places we have ever stayed. Located in a very pretty traditional village, the hotel feels both exotic and extremely comfortable. We loved our dinner and breakfast... More

We have been in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is well kept and the view to the mountains and the see is amazing. Nevertheless, the hotel is not accessible by car but only by walking for a tiny street ramping on top of the village, carrying your own baggages. The closest parking place is for just few cars,...

I just got back from a short 5 day holiday at Cressa Ghitonia with a friend. This hotel is EXACTLY what we wanted. We were welcomed with open arms and a snack made for us because we had arrived to late. Location: The hotel is in the middle of a small village, a short walk from the car park (uphill!).... More

I hate the usual hotel, you know the sort, tiled balcony, plastic furniture, over looking a crowded beach, featureless rooms.... Cressa Ghitonia is none of these, first of all its an adventure to get to, situated as it is high up, on a narrow road. You drive through a typical Cretan village, almost able to knock on doors through your... More

My wife and I stayed here at the end of August and thought the staff were very friendly and accommodating. When we arrived, there were enough signs to guide us to the hotel parking and then the walk to the hotel. I thought the hotel get together around 7 PM was fun.

What a great place to relax and refresh, beautiful scenery, extremely friendly staff and an abundance of peace and quiet. The small pool is ideal for cooling off but you definitely need a car to visit any of the local places of interest.
