Location, location, location. This place is heaven if you look for wild sea, beautiful beaches and total chilling. The rooms are basic, no frills whatsoever, with decent-sized bathrooms (with window) and a kitchenette: nothing you could cook a full course dinner with, but enough to fix a simple meal. Air con is provided but we never needed it, the constant...

You don't need a swimmingpool when clear, blue waters are just below your hotel! You don't have to pass the road, and you can find your own undisturbed site. However, steps are quite steep, so if you have problems with walking, you can walk or drive the car for a couple of minutes. Have stayed on Petalida several times during...

Fotis and his family are so welcoming and hospitable. Room was quiet, clean, spacious and had everything you could ask for. Close to the beach, walking distance to shops and restaurants nearby. Had the lobster from their boat that went out that day - delicious and great value for money! Only stayed two nights but could definitely stay longer.

Small hotel with small apartments in a calm and quiet area. 300 meters from Cretes most beatiful beach (in my opinion). Rooms are firmly cleaned every day. Amazing sunset with the perfect view from the balcony and the taverna. The crew are extremly service-minded and the food is made of mainly self-harvested ingredients. Impressive! Recommended!!

Family owned and operated Hotel with great view over the bay of Falassarna. Nice and friendly atmosphere, great Food and close to the beach. The beach ist reachable via stone-steps from the terrasse, and on the road by car in about 2 min. The Family catches their own fish, watch out for the "catch of the day" A must try....

The property overlooks the sea and is very close to the Ancient Ruins and a very nice beach. It is run by a family - very nice and friendly people. Fotis, one of the members, speaks perfect English and was very helpful with all kinds of information I needed before the trip. I loved my stay there.
