“Nice Hotel in Kissamos!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

My GF and spent one night here while visiting some of the West Coach beaches (Balos, and Elafounsi). The location to get to those beaches was great. The hotel itself was very nice. We did not have reservations and showed up after a long day visiting Balos and Gramvouse via the bout tour from the Kissamos port. They had a very nice room available to us and we payed much less than we were expecting. The owner was very nice, allowed us to see the room before we paid. If we had stayed in the area longer I would definately have continued to stay here. The bed was the most comfortable (and biggest, true king) that we slept in while in Crete. The AC worked perfectly. Everything was clean in the room and common areas.

I would stay here again.

This is a charming family run hotel, where they take care in every personal detail.

It is perfectly situated to enjoy the whole area being so close to Falassarna Beach and Balos. The pool area is outstanding with a large pool and bar serving snacks.

The hotel is named after the daughter Peli whose English is superb, even if she doesn't think so!

We will definitely return and would wholly recommend a stay here!

Hotel Peli is a family run, well maintained hotel. Located one block from the beautiful bay at Kissamos / Kasteli. Unspoilt town which has enough facilities for a peaceful holiday. Owners friendly and welcoming. The plumbing works reliably, plenty of hot water with good drainage. Rooms are standard hotel with balcony. Kept very clean. Clean linen every 2 days. Small TV in room, never used. Large flat screen TV in reception. Breakfast on patio with narrow view of sea. Large outdoors covered yoga area and indoor yoga studio. Lovely Breakfast of fresh fruit, muesli and eggs. Large swimming pool and garden area. Restaurants & cafe bars near. 10 minutes walk to more. Luckily had hot weather for October. I stayed for one week as part of a yoga holiday mid October 2013 when hotel was quiet. Owners friendly and welcoming. Located one block from the beautiful bay at Kissamos / Kastelli an unspoilt town which has enough for a peaceful holiday. Bus from Hania stops outside hotel. Excellent Crete bus service.

What a fantastic family run hotel!
I've just returned from a fab weeks yoga holiday staying at this hotel and it was just brilliant. The hotel gives excellent service, the rooms are great and spotlessly clean and were cleaned every day with fresh towels and bedding during the week.

Absolutely everything was catered for, from fridges and air con in the rooms to the wonderful breakfast after the yoga, with fresh fruit from the garden and home made jams and Cretan delights, to the lovely hotel pool! The beach is less than a minute's walk and just gorgeous and so relaxing. There are some shops just opposite the hotel for anything you might need - there's a supermarket a few mins walk away and the main town is prob a lovely 5-10 min stroll away where you'll find plenty shops, pharmacies and tavernas! Make sure you visit the lovely Chocolate shop...!

If you're going for yoga, there's a new outside yoga studio which is just amazing, and so wonderful to practice yoga in.

For evenngs, there are local tavernas close by but some more along the promenade which is maybe a 10 minute walk from the hotel - loved The Cellar and Papadakis and of course Maria Beach which is just across from the hotel. Make sure you try the local Cretan dishes, the food is all grown locally and is so fresh, just delicious!

Don't go to Kissamos/Kastelli if you're looking for a lively holiday with lots of nightlife and very touristy, this is a working Cretan town with no themed bars etc but plenty of local cuisine and perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday.

I will definitely be back to Hotel Peli and would highly recommend it, you will not be diasappointed.

Altough the hotel is around 50mins taxi ride from Chania airport, it is absolutely worth it. The location is quiet and friendly with a beautiful beach 30seconds from hotel with gorgeous sands and clear seas. We took our babymoon here!
The hotel itself is family run and exceptionally friendly. We had the most relaxing stay.
Room was clean, and air conditioned with a nice balcony.
Pool area well set out and plenty of loungers. Pool itself was lovely, and you can enjoy gorgeous homemade salads, dips and cakes by the pool!
It's a quiet location, but there are some nice restaurants for evening meals.

Great place if you're looking for a relaxing seaside/pool holiday, but there are options to take the bus/hire a car to go further afield.

I was one week and cried leaving this place. The beautiful family, cosy environment, quite and comfortable place to stay and have a real relax. Exquisite Greek salat at the Pool-bar, served the way you only want. People always ready to help you and to talk in the evenings, play tavli.
Unforgettable moments! I love you all!

We stayed here in autumn 2012 and have just booked for this year. I NEVER stay in hotels but this one is very special. I stayed because of a yoga course, but highly recommend the hotel for anyone wanting to experience the real Crete. Facilities were always clean, comfortable, lovely pool area and very friendly staff/owners.

Kissamos is a lovely town, with sandy beach and sea is lovely for swimming. Lots of great walking in the hills.

Have been to Crete many times and this is definitely a new favourite.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Peli is located in the beautiful town of Kissamos in the prefecture of Chania. It was here where brothers Kostis and Manolis Pateromichelakis believed in and envisioned to create one of the first hotels of the area, motivated by the need to offer a friendly and familiar ambience. Hotel Peli has operated since 1987 and has accommodated visitors from Greece and all over the world, many of whom come back every year not only to feel the owners' warmth and hospitality but also to enjoy the natural beauties of Kissamos. The time has come now for the new generation of the family to start engaging more in the hotel’s growth and thinking creatively about the future, expanding the hotel offers among others to the yoga holidays (last year we invested our time in building the spacious open area dedicated exclusively to yoga groups to be ready yet before the season began). At the same time maintaining the entirely family character of this place that draws many people to us. The arrangement and decoration of the hotel is based on simple, austere lines that leave its architectural stigma invariable through the passing of time; lines that relax relieve and revitalize the visitor. You can feel that sense of well-being by staying in one of the 29 rooms which meet the requirements of all modern amenities and by choosing a book from the library situated in the living room on the first floor. You will enjoy your tasteful breakfast (buffet) from local products, organic fruits and homemade marmalade on the spacious veranda surrounded by bougainvilleas with a sea view. You can also enjoy your postmeridian coffee or tea , your cocktail in the breeze of the garden around the swimming pool or try a salad prepared from organic vegetable from our house's garden at our snack bar. Hotel Peli is a two-star hotel that consists of a ground and first floor, having a sea view from one side. It is located in Mavros Molos area, 30m from the public, sandy and gently shelving beach, certified with the Blue Flag. Within the walking distance (50m) you can find a restaurant, tavern, mini market and super market. There is a bus station on the opposite side of the street, from where you can explore the nearby natural beauty of this part of Crete: FALASSARNA BEACH (15KM), BALOS LAGOON (8KM), ELAFONISSI (45KM), KISSAMOS PORT, CHANIA etc. The centre of the town itself is reachable easily on foot within 10 minutes. ... more   less
