“Yet another very positive review”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Can only reaffirm what other positive reviews say about this lovely family owned and run hotel. It's located on the bay but a very short two minute walk into the little town. It is spotlessly clean with well appointed bathroom and kitchen area. There is a pool to the rear of the hotel with coffee shop adjoining. Home baked cookies were there upon our arrival and having thanked the lady for such a lovely treat, on our return from a walk, there were even more left for us in the kitchen. They are a lovely family. Helpful and keen to do all they can even if the stay was such a short one, like ours was. Went to the big '5 star' resort for possibility of evening meal, located just down the road to this hotel, but walked out after viewing what was on offer there. This hotel is THE place to stay in the charming town of Sitia.

Room Tip: Any room really. All have little clothes driers just outside door so good place to catch up on any w...

We stayed for a week at Sitia Bay and would certainly recommend it. The room was spotless and very comfortable and the friendly service offered by Eric and family was much appreciated. We really looked forward to the home baked treats awaiting us in our room after a hard day's sunbathing at the beach which is in front of the hotel. The pool was lovely with Jacuzzi facility. Thank you for the little gift on departure - a reminder of a perfect holiday in Sitia. We will be back.

Room Tip: We had a suite which had a second room to include a bed settee, table & chairs & kitchen wit...

You will be pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Family owned, with mum and dad actively working at the hotel with their 2 sons. Absolutely beautiful rooms, facilities and people. Our stay was only an afternoon and a morning, we enjoyed good conversation and a friendly atmosphere.
A very Eco friendly setup with all the modern conveniences and more.
The afternoon was spent at the bar with the beach directly across the road.
A spacious rooftop area is available to relax and enjoy the sunset .
On the whole a must stay for longer hotel.
We can only highly recommend this hotel .

We wished to explore the eastern end of the island whilst staying in Elounda, and decided that a holiday within a holiday was the answer.

This hotel, is an apart hotel situated right by the waterfront in Sitia. There is parking at the rear, and access through to reception

We were met by Eric, an English speaking Greek who was most helpful with recommendations, restaurants etc. Thank you very much Eric and also Renata.

The room was a comfortable affair with television, air conditioning, a spare couch and eating area. The shower, wc and sink were in a seperate bathroom. There is also a cooking area with utensils, kettle, coffee plunger, toastie maker, hot plates etc.There is a patio area with chairs at the front.

The hotel has a bar, swimming pool with jacquzi area and lots of sun beds. There is access at the front to the hotel's beach. Whilst there is a charge for the sun beds his is refundable through the bar by getting discounted drinks.

There is a wonderful roof top terrace to watch the sun go down if you wish.

The hotel does provide a breakfast which consists of home made bread, jams etc. You might wish to get your own but we found the offering to be nice and filling.

The hotel is convenient for the tavernas etc of Sitia but there is not much night life as this is of course a Creten city first, and foremost.

Strongly recommended.Enjoy your stay!

We spent last week at the Sitia Bay Hotel, and enjoyed everything about it. Our apartment, number 20, was spotless, quiet and well equipped, with a lovely large balcony overlooking the beach. The staff were extremely helpful with many ready recommendations for trips or meals out, and every day small cakes and treats were delivered to our room! We particularly liked the proximity to the town amenities and the beautifully clean beach only 20 metres away. We whiled away several relaxing afternoons in the lovely pool and its surroundings. We look forward to another stay soon.

During our Eastern Crete tour we stayed at this hotel for two nights. The room was spotless and comfortable and the kitchenette was extremely well equipped. This family run hotel is situated oppersite a rather busy but very clean beach, but also has a beautiful and more quiet pool area. The hosts are so very friendly and eager to make your stay a pleasent one - always ready with good tips and advice. We would certainly stay there again.

My husband and I spent a week in Sitia Bay Hotel in August 2013. We chose this hotel after having read all the positive comments about it and we were not disappointed at all! On the contrary!! On our arrival, we had the warmest welcome by the owners Eric and Renata who were always eager to help us, give us directions, give us information and hints about places of interest and places to eat well (priceless!!), or just spent a few minutes chatting with us!
As for the hotel, we had a very spacious room, a lovely balcony with a great view to the beach and the city, an amazing swimming pool (our refuge on the days it was too windy to go to the beach) surrounded by a beautiful garden and patio and, last but not least, an amazing roof terrace with breathtaking view!!
Everywhere in this hotel, you can see the love to the detail of the family running this place. This is not just a place to stay in Sitia. It is THE place to spend a wonderful time with friends in Sitia!
