Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 September 2013

We had an excellent 10 days stay in the Nautilus Bay Hotel: discreet staff that make you feel at home, perfect service, authentic food, quiet environnement (only the slight sound of the waves), relaxing view on the sea from the large balcony, well equiped big rooms (fridge, airco, cooking plate), perfect location to discover west of Creta (balos, dalania georges, Elafonisi, Polirinia necropole, Falasarma beach,...). Nice pool as alternative for the sea, sandy beach with confortable beds.

We had a really enjoyable relaxing stay here. The rooms are spacious, light and airy. Basic cooking facilities with a two ring hob and a fridge, ok for a light meal. the hotel is right on the beach, yes you might have to walk past a couple of cars as the last review complained but that's no great hardship. Nice sandy beach with a gentle shelf, quiet when we visited and no difficulty finding loungers. Not many people were using the pool and it did lose the sun late afternoon.
About a ten minute walk into the town centre, a few minutes walk to the sea front restaurants. A good base for touring, and Kissamos felt like a working Greek town, with a mix of tourist nationalities. George the owner was very helpful, meeting us at the airport. Will return.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view, larger suites have 2 balconies which catch the morning and afternoon sun...

Modern design, recently built hotel. Location is good as it's near some of the most beautiful beaches such as Balos and Phalasarna. However the beach in front of the hotel is just Ok and there's no direct access to it -- just through the parking lot -- not bad but not ideal.

In general, the rooms are stylish but not always functional. For example: the bathroom gets soaked while taking a shower. Also, the air-conditioner shuts down if you open any of the balcony doors -- i.e. you cannot go to the balcony while the room cools down. Simpler solutions would work better IMO.

We stayed just one night with half board included. Everything on the menu was available for us to choose during dinner. The food was good. The breakfast, however, was sub-par and the mini-bar completely empty. We expected a little more given the usual Mediterranean hotel service and the relatively expensive fare (for the area) they charge.

We stopped here for a few nights while touring the island. Had some fun finding the hotel as there were roadworks around and didn't find any signs. It was just a case of finding the right road to the beach as it's right on a nice bit of beach - it's in a great location, though the area around looks a bit rundown. Nice welcome and helpful manager on arrival and the room was excellent - understand he's built the hotel up over the last couple of years. The room was large and clean, with limited cooking facilities, a nice size fridge and a good bath. twin beds pushed together. the aircon was up the lounge end and didn't really cool the bed area. nice balcony with a great view. the pool only had 14 sunbeds and these were often all taken by families and children. Lots of scandinavians here. We never used the pool though it looked nice - it lost the sun late afternoon. Friendly staff whilst having drinks at the bar. Breakfast was the big disappointment. No fresh fruit, no canned fruit, yoghurt, cereal, bread(sometimes old) eggs, cheese and meat. Very limited and only warm water for tea and cheapest ever tea bags (we ended up using our own). After this experience in the evening we found some nice restaurants just along the shore over the bridge. The hotel is well situated for exploring this part of the island. A boat trip to Balos and Falassarna is a must. The hotel suited us as a base for exploring and would have been nice for a beach holiday. A touch of thought and at small expense breakfast would have made the experience a lot better.

Nice hotel located right on the beach. The beach is beautiful. Free sunbeds on the beach. The rooms are big, new, well equipped (containing fridge…) and clean. The bed was comfortable. Wi-Fi for free. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Supermarkets, restorans and bus station is about 5 minutes away from the hotel.
Buffet breakfast. Dinner very good. Value for money. Highly recommend staying here. Great holidays.

Nautilus Bay is a new property located right on the beach. The rooms are huge and comfortable, there is a nice swimming pool, and you can have the meals inside or "al fresco" enjoying the seaview. We had dinner at the hotel and the food was very good. They have a nice bar aswell, with good cocktails.
Kissamos is not a glamorous place, but we enjoyed the holidays and would defenately stay in this hotel again.
Should get a car to visit the fantastic beaches nearby: Falassarna and Balos (get a ferry on the port of kissamos) and south to Elafonissi - really amazing beach and lagoon.
