The Hotel Porto Elounda Deluxe is listed by Conde Naste as one of the 100 best resorts in the world. The inexpensive but very comfortable Ammos Hotel in Chania is also highly recommended. I stayed at the Hotel Porto Veneziano which overlooked the Venetian Harbor in Chania and the Hotel Casa Delfino which is like staying in a Venetian Palace and I recommend both hotels highly.

Visit my site for a listing of recommended hotels with photos, descriptions and booking information.

Panokosmos B&BPanokosmos B&B: The luxury of a first class hotel, the privacy of a private villa, the atmosphere of staying with friends. Are you looking for a place to relax, to unwind, to recharge your batteries? Away from the tourist traps, off the beaten track, away from it all? But only 35 minutes from Chania, and 25 minutes from the beach and local towns. Where you are really special, where there are no crowds, there’s no competition for the best positions around the pool, no loud neighbours, no pushy waiters? No noisy children, no intrusive families. Visit Panokosmos Website

For those visiting Kissamos, Crete, the Bikakis Family Hotel in an inexpensive, family run hotel that features an impressive gallery of the owner's paintings and they also do nature tours of the area. Kissimos is the furthest town west and is very unspoiled by mass tourism.

For people who are opposed to using a travel agency and prefer to book hotels individually see where you can find hotels by catagory, location and even by facilities or whether or not they allow pets and if you book through that link (you should see my banner on it) I will get a small comission which will keep me being able to do what I do best which is eat, drink, travel and give away free information.

For those who want to take my advice and book through a reliable Greek travel agency you can find one at

Homes, Villas and Apartments

The trend these days in Greece is to rent a house, especially for families with children because having two or three rooms in a hotel can be inconvenient. Though living in a villa or apartment can feel isolating at times, especially for children (who, lets face it, have a lot more fun when they are staying somewhere there are lots of other kids around, like a big hotel on the beach with a swimming pool), sometimes it makes more economic sense to rent a house. has a number of properties all over the island ranging from luxury villas with swimming pools to simple homes and apartments. With maps, lots of photos of the properties and a number of options for searching, you can find pretty much exactly what you are looking for. Keep in mind though, that unlike hotels which have dozens of rooms, a house generally sleeps from 4 to a dozen people, and they go very quickly. So if you find the perfect place, book it.

You can find hotels in Crete by location, price, whether or not it has a swimming pool, and see photos and reviews by using this link to Excellent prices and many hotels you can book and then cancel with no cancellation fee. For those who want to book without using a travel agency this is the best way to do it.
