This hotel is a little gem on the north west coast of Crete. The staff is so friendly and helpful, they really make your stay special. The hotel is constantly evolving, with a new outside dining area and a great beach bar and restaurant, where you can enjoy a casual lunch or simply a nice cold drink whilst quietly reading a book in the cooling shade, right by the pool. One tip, if you book through a tour operator like us: don't book your excursions through them, book through the reception. It's much cheaper, including car rental! The beach is public, but even in August not that crowded. You'll get sun beds throughout the day and although they cost EUR 4,50 for two, they are cheaper than those in the neighbouring sections of the beach.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor in the side building. It's newer and the Junior Suites enjoy a lovel...

I've just return from 1 week staying at this hotel. The position is excellent. The beach is great, the garden is very well kept as the pool area too. One inconvenient: we had to pay for the sunbeds on the beach, although the beach is private...
The restaurant area is great, the food is EXCELLENT!
The rooms are quite small. We received a room in the main building with street view which was noisy but very cosy and clean.
The staff is very friendly and promptly.
I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the building towards the beach, not in the main building.

Staying at Orpheas resort was one of the most memorable experience ever, for me and my frieds. Our apartment was extremely well prepared, clean and everything was arranged in a tasteful and modern way. We really enjoyed the variety and the quality of the food as well as the clean beach. But what is even more impressive is the friendliness of the people and the owner of the hotel combined with their proffessionalism at the highest standards. In just a few days they made us feel like we were visiting our home. The personnel is very helpful when we asked that we wanted to visit the Island. One of their recommendation was the restaurant Mikro Livadi in Episkopi it is an amazing place to enjoy the traditional Cretan food, as well as the warm hospitality of Malamatenia and Aetos!

I would recommend Orpheas resort to everyone to visit, at least every summer :)

We just returned from our second stay at orpheus resort. This place was amazing. We stayed here for seven nights. This place is paradise if you want a get away for a bit of tourist rush. The beach in front of the hotel is sandy, the main pool area is set in a beautiful garden, in this romantic setting we enjoyed our dinners.. The rooms are not so luxurious but still very good. This place is all about attention to detail. Every staff member we met was so polite, and pleasant. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Book junior suite...it s the best

Very recommendable quiet beach hotel, excellent value for money. The entrance area, the lobby the restaurant, the poolbar... everything is very nice designed. Everywhere there are cozy sitting areas where one gladly stayed. Everything is super clean and tidy. Beautiful garden, pleasant staff with fun at the work... Bus station, plenty of shops, tavernas and pubs in the immediate area. We can only recommend this hotel.
One of the most beautiful hotels, in a very nice garden and comfortable rooms. Ideal for people who are not into large ( Skyscrapers) hotels .

Orpheas Resort set off to change from a simple beach hotel to something different… we felt the time had come to create a space for travelers ready to experience the unexpected, searching for a place to unwind and relax, a resort to appeal to all senses. The playful dialogue with the architectural history of Crete provides wonderful surroundings, carefully selected materials, arty design, harmonic colors together with some funky details result in a feel of laid-back luxury with a bohemian twist.

In 20 km you reach Rethymnon, the beautiful city with its romantic old town.
