The best thing about this hotel is the staff! We stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time exploring the area and taking a few day trips to visit beautiful and interesting locations in Crete. We would not have been able to find everything without the very helpful owners and staff. The beach nearby is lovely. Breakfast was...

Leaking toilet, small shower, and general disrepair. The photos on booking definitely did not represent what we found. The place has potential but if other rooms are similar to what we had then it would require a lot of effort. We didn't have breakfast so I can't comment.

We are sorry to read your comments. The hotel has been completely refurbished over the last 3 years and only the bathrooms of the bungalows were left to be completely changed for 2017. Although they are dated design wise, we try to keep them functional and clean. The photos are definitely representative and realistic. Hopefully in your next visit to...

We stayed in Creta Vitalis 22nd - 27th August 2016. First impressions were that it's a little old fashioned but the couple who run it are really lovely and very helpful. We had a bungalow which had a sea view and was clean and more modern. It's quite basic but there is air conditioning, a small kitchen, the rooms are...

Booked two bedroom bungalow. It was one bedroom, living area was the second bedroom through which we had to walk to get to the bedroom. Tiny kitchen area. Cockroaches in bathroom. Balcony too small for four people to sit around the small table. Balcony was yards away from fairly busy road so lots of noise. Management not really interested in...

Your commnents are quite unfair with all the respect. Our description is absolutely accurate as long as someone pays attention. The family bungalows feature 2 connecting bedrooms and not 2 bedrooms + living room. The latter refers to the 2-bedroom apartment. I suppose this was the right option for you, which you could not select as we were fully booked...

We loved our stay at Creta Vitalis: waking up to an amazing view of the sea each morning was definitely a highlight; the hotel is very close to Kalathas beach as well as the bus stop where it is easy to take public transport to Chania or to Stavros beach. Hotel staff are friendly and always helpful, the rooms nice...

It's a simple hotel, but very comfortable. There's a nice pool outside, with sunbeds and a beautiful view of the sea. The staff is helpful and friendly. Our room was good, there was a balcony (with a view of the sea) and an air conditioning (indispensable during the summer).

Stayed in Creta Vitalis in June 2015. Owners were fantastic (Mr Nikos especially!), friendly and always there to help, as were the staff. Nothing was too much of a trouble. Very clean, and close to a superb beach. Fantastic value for money. Would most definitely stay again and recommend!

Hello! it was really nice you enjoyed your stay. You are right regarding the slow wi-fi and we are really sorry about it. unfortunately it has to do with the connection of the area that is unable to support faster wi-fi speeds. We are doing our best to improve it with our IT people. we hope you may visit us...
