Located directly beside a sand and shingle beach in Chersonissos, this quiet, family-run hotel is a terrific base from which both families and couples can explore the sleepy villages and pristine beaches of Crete. The hotel is so close to the sea that guests can be served refreshments from the hotel café right there on the beach, and guests can swim, sunbathe and enjoy various water sports just steps from the hotel. Rooms are modern and bright with garden or sea views, en suite bathroom, Wi-Fi internet access, mini fridge, and air-conditioning, and the hotel offers car rental services, on-call doctor, and currency exchange facilities for added convenience. Guests can also enjoy hearty buffet-style meals at the hotel restaurant, as well as coffee or traditional ouzo, raki, and other local drinks at the hotel bar. Visitors may wish to visit the capital city of Crete with its many ancient cultural attractions, only a half-hour drive from the hotel.
