We booked this hotel after a long hard day at Balos beach(long walk with lots of stairs in the scorching sun). It cost €57 and the accommodation were above average but not amazing. It was worth the money spent. The bed was firm but not as uncomfortable as some we've slept in our 1 week in Crete. The pool was...

Tip: hire a decent car or book a group trip! But to get the best view of Balos, you need to come in on foot, not boat! The drive is hard, 8km off road on dust and rubble mountain tracks with some very steep gradients, as you'd expect driving up a mountain. Once parked, you then have a 2km walk...

We have just returned from a week long stay at this hotel. It is situated in a stunning location with wonderful sea views across the bay. It was lovely to be able to sit on the spacious balcony and watch the sun rising and setting. The hotel is quite remote and it is not served by public transport. Consequently a...

I feel very lucky and grateful 'cause I think I visited and 'lived' one of the most beautiful places on earth :)))))))) BALOS is simply a Paradise!! But I really loved Gramvousa Island as well, and I think I'll never forget the brief chat I had with the magic 'guardian' of the island, who also gave me a small but...

Ir is a quiet vacation place , isolated with basic services and good views. The beach is gone so you can swim on the remining rocks. Pool staff is very nice. Very strict with breakfast timetable. Las habitaciones son básicas y con una pequeña cocina , todo antiguo.

Unique beauty and divine place! Despite the difficulty to reach the place, 7km off road and at least 2km walking to reach the beach by road or by boat from Kissamos, it worths! Clean not deep water and wonderful sea deeper, pink sand and beautiful shells! Don't forget to take food and drinks with you or visit the cantina on...

Beautiful room, friendly staff, delicious food and a beautiful scenery and beach (if not windy). We will go back there any time! The staff made us feel welcome when we arrived and even upgraded us when they heard we are on honeymoon. I recommend this place to anyone, including those with children. There is a nice pool and bar at...

A very pleasant hotel situated on the road to Balos Lagoon and Gramvousa. We had an appartment, fully equipted with air condition and room for six people in very good beds. The price was a bit steep compared to other hotels we've stayed at while in Crete. The pool area is very nice, with a pool bar, sunbeds and a...

Well equipped suite apartments - very spacious with big beds, big balconies. Fantastic view over the ocean. Wifi only worked out on the balcony and with a price for 330 euros for 2 nights we would have expected to be able to use our devices in the rooms. Due to a booking misunderstanding we did not have a 3 night...
