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.
- 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
