Have just returned after 7 nights in On the Rocks. The best thing for me was how helpful the staff were. They could not have been more helpful and friendly. Breakfast was lovely sitting on the terrace and was varied every day. Great location and very quiet. Air con essential and was great. Would return in a heartbeat.

Very comfortable hotel, spent four nights here whilst on a walking holiday. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to tavernas and shops but quiet location. Rooms very clean and well furnished, including a mini bar in each room. Choice and standard of breakfast excellent.

The hotel is located at the end of the Paleochora seashore promenade and has lovely views along the coast towards the headlands of Souyia and Ayia Roumeli, especially in the morning. The rooms are slightly small but well organised and all seem to have a balcony and sea view. Breakfast was nice enough and could be taken on an attractive... More

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.

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
