Fodor's Expert Review Sitia Bay Hotel

P. Vartholomaiou 27, Sitia, Crete, 72300, Greece

In an area not renowned for its high-quality accommodations, this apartment-hotel stands out for its easy, relaxed feel. Rooms front a sandy beach a two-minute walk from town, and have great views of Sitia Bay. Family-run, clean, and uncomplicated, even the smallest studio has its own kitchen and balcony. A chlorine-free pool with plenty of shade and a small gym and sauna offer welcome diversions.

PROS

  • superfriendly staff know all the best places to visit in the locality
  • good base for exploring this forgotten part of Crete

CONS

  • don't expect luxurious furnishings
