We stayed in Orestis hotel for 5 days and we very much enjoyed it. The strong points of this little appartment - hotel are 1) The setting: A small cretan village still not spoiled by turism in the middle of valleys full of olive groves with really good traditional restaurants 2) The owner: Mr. Platon is not the typical hotel owner but rather a hobbyist who enjoys his retirement years running this little hotel. Very informative, very helpful. 3) The rooms: we stayed in the upper rooms which make full use of their average size offering views on both sides (One side the pool and the Psiloritis Mt, the other side the olive groves and a small portion of the Cretan Sea), Simple but functional rooms.
The weak points could be. 1) The location which requires owning or renting a car in order to get to the action as the village is small and quite detached (even the shops there have only the very basic) 2) The pool which gathers a considerable amount of drowned insects (bees and hornets included). I assume that it was filtered in the night or something or maybe i am wrong. Not such a big deal anyway.
I would definitely recommend the place to people who want to relax and enjoy great food and isolation
