“Hotel Orion = such a lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Been there with a friend for 12 days (15 - 26 may 2013) and we had the best time ever. I'd never been that in to all-in package but in Orion Hotel it was worthed. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were day after day very nice, a lot of choice (even to much) The rooms are in very good condition, well cleaned every day and very important no noice! The people working in the hotel, from manager to barkeepers, cleaninglady's, nightguard etc were the nicest. Very helpfull, friendly and entertaining. We really enjoyed our stay at the Orion Hotel and hope to go back very soon! Kisses from Belgium!!!

I booked this holiday for me and my husband after having a bad year last year. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We loved everything about this hotel and holiday as the hotel was kept very clean, the food was really good and the staff was fantastic. We would also like to say a BIG thank you to the bar staff Stefanos and cheeky chappy Alex for just making our holiday that extra bit special. We hope to return next year.

Room Tip: We had a room on 3rd floor and it was lovely. The only thing we though that would be a good idea is...

I've been travelling in Greece for 30 years and have experienced good and bad. This was good. I booked inclusive package for first time as also for first time I was a single. I agree with the reviewer who said 'look at what you paid!!!!!' The hotel is Greek through and through. If you want shiny and glitz with entertainment, and happy to stay in a HUGE hotel, then book the hotel opposite which is stuffed full of Russians and their suited and booted security guards. With their fenced off VIP area on the beach! If you want to experience Crete, choose the Orion. Of course the beds are singles!!! They are in many hotels to allow flexibility. Uncomfortable? Rubbish. Food? Genuine Greek simple food. Staff? Great. I don't know the name of the lady who ran the restaurant and appeared to be there constantly - thank you! I happily ate all my meals alone for the first few days and felt totally happy and comfortable. Too many people are just out to get their money's worth. Get out there!!!!!! It's a historical and stunningly beautiful and I spent every day travelling it as much as I could. Do the Yellow Train. Don't miss Preveli and Arkadi. Rethymnon? Local leaves from outside. Chania? Easy. Book your trios from the UK as its cheaper. I'm hoping to go back in September.

Stayed here in October 2012 for 2weeks and had a really good time. The room that we were given on arrival was terrible, small and dark and looking onto a back lane. Had we been in this room for 2 weeks my review would have been very different. As it was we were moved in the morning to a lovely room on the top floor. The food was as you would expect for a mid range all inclusive, plentiful and a good choice. All the staff were very friendly. The pool area was nice with lots of sunbeds and plenty of space. There was a small pool at the back as well but we didn't use that so can't comment. There was the usual shops within walking distance and several car hire businesses. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor, with pool view. Do not accept rooms at the back.

Before I start I would like to make a suggestion to all the moaners who've commented on here.......CHECK OUT WHAT YOU PAID........That said,get out of the hotel, move away from the bar , where many of you seem to take root 'lest you don't get your monies worth of alcohol, and go see the beauty of the island.........Spend a few bob, hire a car and get out. Broaden your horizons.........Far too many people on all inclusive deals imagine they are going to get a golden handshake, continuous entertainment, room service, child minding facilities, and an endless supply of brain numbing cocktails........Well, if you think that, you're WRONG. You have to be responsible for PART of your own entertainment on hols, and for REAL folks, that does not involve sitting around a pool all day.........This place is ideal for all who know how to get out and about. O.K. so it isn't the RITZ, but again, check out the prices........It's MORE than acceptable..........Good food, clean, good staff.........

Room Tip: Book and pay early.......Let them know if you want it quiet.........HIGH is quiet......
