We had a choice: two superior double rooms with sea view or a triple room with an extra bed with mountain view. We knew from the reviews that the superior rooms were better, but since we were on a low budget trip we choose the other option. The room was ok for the price we paid and being on the... More

I had just a night and two days here as it was my final port of call back to London. It was at the end of a desolate road overlooking the beach for which I had intended. The Host was lovely who checked me in and out - so genuine! The Sea view unfortunately was a side sea view, so... More

Our hotel instructed us for this beach site, arriving we easily find free parking and we managed to find a spot with shadow, believe me it was so hot that if you leave the car in the sun you better walk back. The sits become so hot. The back is split in this part, with many beach bars offering sun... More

I was surprised at the quality of my room given that the rates were not very expensive. I had a great view of the (not too crowded) beach with a lot of space. The staff was always very friendly and accommodating. It was the perfect location to relax and enjoy while still being relatively close to city. The next time... More

We stayed there for three nights and our experience was incredible. I highly recommend this place, the owners: Christos, Vasilis and Nicolas are really kind and friendly and they gave us a lot of help. Vasilis speaks a perfect Spanish and he gave us great suggestions about what to see in Crete. The hotel has an excellent location, just in... More

Christos and his staff made welcome with a capital W ! Our first few nights were in a standard room but had a brilliant view of the sea just steps away. The Taverna attached is highly recommended as Christos's mother prepares specials on almost daily basis. everything fresh and natural and just a pleasure . We were there for 11... More

The hotel is in an excellent position near the sea and in a quiet place. Our bedroom was big, clean and comfortable; the private bathroom a little bit small and old. The staff was friendly, helpful and really nice and the Greek food we had at the taverna of the hotel was tasty and delicious. We enjoyed our staying at... More
