“A good location with plenty of bars around”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Nice place , not overly crowded. Plenty of different nationalities - Russians all over. Nice variety of meals however desserts were a bit disappointing. Took a trip to Knossos and Heraklion one day a bit of a rip off as we were left to our own devices most of the time. Good karaoke and Greek dancing night at hotel. Recommend red open top bus trip up to mountains Rethmynon town easily accessible by bus also . I want some AMstel RAdler and a cocktail now

The Orion Hotel is a lovely place to spend a relaxing week away, fantastic location near the beach and shops around it. Rooms were cleaned every day and the staff were very friendly, food was nice to. Would recommend to anybody, great value for money.

We have just returned from a fantastic week at the Orion and are already considering our return! We got off to a bad start when our room wasn't ready for four hours after our arrival but the staff were very apologetic and let us use the room safe free of charge. When we got to the room it was great - spotlessly clean with a lovely view over the pool to the sea beyond. The food was really good - plenty of choice and so much of it! Toasted sandwiches, pizza and ice cream available all day at the bar, coffee and delicious cakes at 4.30pm and that's on top of the lovely freshly cooked three meals a day! The drinks were good too - a variety of cocktails, wine beer and spirits together with a wide selection of soft drinks. The pool was lovely, not too deep or overcrowded. I was disappointed to find that the hotel doesn't provide beach towels, but the shop sells them at a discount to hotel residents so that was easily resolved. As a disabled traveller, this hotel was recommended by First Choice for being 'disability friendly', but although there are ramps to allow access from the bar to the pool, there are several steps on the way to the shop and the public toilets are down two flights of steep steps. I had no choice but to keep going all the way back to my room. However, apart from this, the hotel was really fantastic and I would definitely recommend it .

Room Tip: Higher floors get best views and there is a lift.

My wife and I had a lovely time at the Orion, the choice of food was excellent and the restaurant staff we very friendly. We would like to particularly mention the bar staff that's, Stefanos, Alex & Dafina who work tirelessly to entertain and keep happy the residents of the hotel in the evenings. Just be aware that the hotel cleaners mop the marble stairs and marble tiles outside the restaurant early in the morning while the restaurant is serving breakfast with no warning signs to warn the public of wet and slippery floors. If your beach people please go and visit Cristina, her husband & family at their beach bar, restaurant and sun beds they are very friendly, helpful & lovely people. All in all we would return to this hotel for a holiday

All inclusive formule : very good variated food, also for veggie people... the staff was kind.
Everything was great.
We stayed at the 4-floor, best to have a good view on the beach...

The room was clean and big.

So I recommand it, the quality/price was excellent.

Room Tip: 4 floor, view on the beach

The best all inclusive we have stayed in,food really very good,hot and plenty of options for every meal.
Staff could not have been friendlier,Stephanos at the bar,all dining room staff,never saw the cleaners but they were in our room every day.
Manager was also very friendly talking to us every day about our trips out and telling us all local history.
Could not fault anything and would visit again.
