On the sea front with side views, our room was compact, comfortable and very clean. Great value for money with a very warm welcome - home made cakes plus water in the fridge were particularly appreciated.

We ate here twice and were just as wowed both times. Their daily specials and regular menu are great. The moussaka, stuffed zucchini flowers, sword fish and stuffed mushrooms are all amazing! Their house red and white wines are good quality as well. The view is amazing, the staff very nice and the decor is beautiful. For us it's the...

Small but adequate room; exceptionally clean and beautiful position. Very quiet air conditioning! Lovely views, regular clean sheets and towels; very friendly and hospitable family feeling. Dinners were always freshly cooked, delicious and reasonably priced. Loved the owners, the situation, and the beautiful artistic touches. Fantastic service, always. Just loved it! Thank you. Hope to return again and again!

I have never stayed in the accommodation but on each of my four trips to paleachora we have enjoyed our lunches here just a short step from the stony beach. Each day they have a different special and their vegetarian options are excellent, the best I have eaten in Crete

We found Oriental Bay by chance, it is located at the end of the town, but what a nice place! We had lunch there, unfortunately only once as it was on our last day, but the menu certainly had lots of options for many nice meals. The fish was really well cooked, and we especially like that you go to...

We didn't stay her but ate here twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner. Both meals were very good and way above the average Cretan meal. The price was good only slightly above far worse restaurants. Recommended for fish.

I adore staying at this hotel..the family are so friendly,I can go straight into the sea for a swim before breakfast and then have breakfast at the café I have been coming here for 25 years and it really takes some beating. As well as the well appointed rooms, the family runs the café Vortsala just around the corner on...

I couldn't understand why Oriental Bay was not on any 'top ten' list for Paleochora restaurants until I found it listed under accommodation. I'm afraid I don't know what the rooms are like but the restaurant is lovely. They offer the traditional menu you might expect plus specials. The service is always excellent - they didn't even grimace too much...

Oriental Bay Hotel is situated slightly away from the main town, which is good as it can get noisy in the town (village) - it is situated on the sea front. It is a short and very pleasant walk by the sea into the main part of Paleochora with its tavernas and restaurants - Room was just fine - typical...
