A quaint boutique hotel with amazing views
We stayed for 2 nights, the staff were so friendly and the spa facilities were great. We had a good size room and the bed and pillows really comfortable Food in the restaurant was delicious. The views from the bar area are spectacular The only downside to the hotel is that it would not be suitable for anyone with mobility/walking problems as it’s a very steep approach to the hotel and lots of stairs to get to the restaurant

Great hotel to relax in the countryside
This hotel has the best views of the ocean and surrounding Cretan countryside featuring small villages dotting the hilly terrain. It is a great relaxing getaway for those needing quiet from the hustle and bustle of the city and are desiring an authentic rustic experience in this part of Greece.

A truly wonderful gem
This is one of the most unique places we have ever stayed at. A truly special place, with magical balconies and very special people. Off the beaten path and highly highly recommended.

Great place - off the beaten track
Very good - in hills - village location friendly and well equipped - small pool , local town with restaurants about 15 minutes drive , so can be restrictive if you want a few glasses of wine.

Somewhere a bit different
Cressa Ghitonia is a very different hotel from the norm. 15 derelict houses were converted into this hotel. It is situated in a small village in the mountains with views over the village to the sea beyond. There is a small pool, most rooms have their own terrace and there is a spa. The staff are cheerful and friendly. The food is excellent and inexpensive. The hotel is up a steep and narrow road, because of the village location a car is highly recommended. To drive in this part of Crete you need to like hairpin bends and big drops! We thought the whole holiday was idyllic.

Hôtel peu conventionnel !!
Accès très difficile à l'hôtel (très en pente, il vaut mieux être en forme !, parking à 100 M) idem pour les chambres ! il faut monter beaucoup d'escaliers, Par contre très bon confort, belle salle d'eau, bien équipée. Le restaurant est excellent, presque gastronomique, En fait l'hôtel est en espaliers. La piscine est petite mais ambiance feutrée, cosy comme la terrasse où il fait bon prendre un verre en admirant un superbe coucher de soleil sur la montagne. Très bon accueil. A recommander mais pas pour des personnes âgées ou à mobilité réduite.

Super vue, calme, prestation de qualité notamment literie, petit déjeuner, personnel Assez proche du port (7km) avec beaucoup de restaurants Petits inconvénients ; un peu difficile à trouver avec une arrivée tardive, parking à 100m, petite rue ...
