“A Dream Week of Relaxation”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We stayed here as part of a two centre package with Sunville with this as our second week.

The start could have been a disaster with bad weather preventing our ferry transfer but Sunville got us to the nearest port by road and Allison, the hotel's owner fixed, the rest with taxi boat to get our luggage to the hotel (too rough for normal mortals but our cases didn't mind) and jeep plus a short hike in (Allison sent a party over to make sure we found our way) to get us there! We were welcomed heartily and the friendly nature of the experience just got better from there. All the staff looked after us and the place's atmosphere means all the guests seemed sociable too - there were some many time returners here and we can understand why!

Allison has done a great job with the hotel rooms - they're simple, Greek style but comfortable, all very clean and well fitted out with white walls and marble floors. Our room (#8) was on the top floor and looked out over the bay with the mountains on either side. We're not beach fiends - preferring the sunny balcony - but sunbeds, umbrellas and beach towels are available. Rooms face east (the whole village does!) so you won't get afternoon sun or a sunset but its beautiful enough even without that. There's no pool but with the sea 5 metres from the front door, who needs one? The included breakfast (on B&B rates) is simple and we thought it was good value although there aren't any cooked options which some might regret. Still with the restaurants and cafes around going hungry isn't going to be your problem. Some reviews have pointed out that the hotel charges for Internet (although there bars and tavernas where its free) but on the other hand use of the safe and aircon is included in the room rate -something we've been charged for in plenty of places.

Room Tip: We think the rooms on the upper floor have the (slightly) better view. #8 was just beside the bar wi...

Louro is the place for a quiet relaxing holiday - nothing to do except walk, eat, swim and wind down and the Hotel Porto Loutro is just the place to stay. The place is laid back and homely, no rush, no bother and the view from the balcony is wonderful. Everyone is helful and welcoming and all they want is for you to enjoy their gem as much as they do..

Decided on a girlie few days away from the humdrum of everyday life and ended up in Porto Loutro with two friends. Loutro has no cars....it's just a scenic bay of beach and sea.... lined with tavernas and hotels ....the waters edge was all but a few metres from our Porto Loutro front door! What more can a girl ask for? Hotel was perfect in every way ... Great staff, full of information...clean and quiet ....thoroughly recommend it to anyone who appreciates a laid back retreat in a tranquil jaw dropping setting!

Sophia and Manolis and not forgetting Harry(the Labrador)make this the best Hotel in Loutro.
Views,Restaurant and staff are some of the best that we have come across having been traveling to all corners of the world.
Rooms are large and airy with small balconies,air conditioning,refrigerators flat screen tv together with wifi.
If you want peace without cars and loads of people and funfairs you must come to Hotel Porto Loutro On The Hill Anytime.

We tried to stay here twice during a 3-month trip to Crete. The first time I e-mailed inquiring about several different dates in mid-September that we could come, it took 3-4 days to get a reply from the owner saying none of the possible dates were available. I tried e-mailing again about possible availability during October, but the owner never responded at all. So beware if you're trying to plan a trip to Loutro. There are lots of other places to stay.

Our third stay at Porto Loutro 2 and it was as relaxing as ever. Great views, friendly staff and very clean.
The mattresses are uncomfortable and they need more staff so the rooms are cleaned in the morning. The cleaning took place during the afternoon siesta period on most days during our stay which is fine if you are going to spend the full day at the beach but was inconvenient if not. Also more shade on the bar terrace, particularly for breakfast would be welcome. Probably less of an issue earlier in the year as the sun will be higher but in September there were only 4 tables in the shade without rearranging the furniture or putting umbrellas up

Very nice, clean hotel with magnificent view and friendly stuff. We had a great time over there. Very relaxed. The rooms are comfortable with fridge and aircondition. and a big balcony. We took our breakfast in the bar area with a beautiful view. This place was like heaven! We will return for sure.
