Stayed here for two nights while on a walking holiday in southwest Crete. It is a small hotel on the seafront in Paleochora. Clean and smart with helpful staff. The location is very central. We only ate breakfast here, but there are loads of tavernas a stone throw away.

We spent a very enjoyable 5 nights at this hotel in July. Very good location looking overlooking the Libyan sea and just a stroll away from restaurants and bars. The hotel is well run and staff are welcoming. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfasts were delicious. Would stay here again when visiting Paleo.

The hotel is situated near the village. In the night it's quiet. The rooms are big enough and there is a good view over the sea. Breakfast is not to big but o.k. There's place to park your rental car in front of the hotel. It's safe.

Stayed for 6 nights in this modern Western European style hotel. Our standard suite was spacious, well appointed with bedroom, sitting room & modern shower room. The aircon was very quiet & effective. The rooms were cleaned... More

We arrived at this hotel tired and thirsty after a hard days walk from Glykeria. We were greeted by possibly the most unfriendly desk receptionist in the whole of Crete. Not a hint of a welcome or smile. Once we had checked in we went straight out to dinner and on our return around 22.30 the same gentlemen was sitting... More

There were a lot of things we liked about On the Rocks and a few niggles. The location was good for everything in and around Paleochora and we liked the east facing rooms and the views. For us it was the best of both worlds sunshine wise. The staff were friendly and accommodating with nothing being too much bother for... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at On the Rocks and found it to be a peaceful and well located hotel. It is a short walk away from the busier town and was quiet at night. Our room had a separate bedroom and a sitting area with a couch, desk and TV. This looked out towards the balcony which... More
