A few words about Orpheas Resort:
Orpheas Resort set off to change from a simple beach hotel to something different… we felt the time had come to create a space for travelers ready to experience the unexpected, searching for a place to unwind and relax, a resort to appeal to all senses.
The playful dialogue with the architectural history of Crete provides wonderful surroundings, carefully selected materials, arty design, harmonic colors together with some funky details result in a feel of laid-back luxury with a bohemian twist.
With gardens and lounges filled with tranquility, inspiration and the smile of our staff, Orpheas Resort is a true oasis on Crete.
Directly on Crete´s longest, and most beautiful beach, 18 kilometers long, beneath the impressive White Mountains.
Kavros, a little Village with some shops, tavernas and cafés is a short walk, Georgioupolis, once a fishing village and now the vivid touristic center of the area, is 4 km away.
In 20 km you reach Rethymnon, the beautiful city with its romantic old town.
There´s a bus station nearby.

During the day our Pool Bar provides A’ la Cart light snacks & meals, fancy salads and all kinds of refreshments. We can serve also on our beach!
Location is good, it's right on the beach. Porters are friendly but not other staff (see below).
chambermaid comes very early (9.00) and there was not 'DND' label until i asked for it. safe locker comes at a separate money and is key-enabled. shower cabin is just stupid. Would not recommend the place (Kavros) for young couples as there's absolutely no fun at night, all the bars close at 23.00.
Great buffet breakfasts, and there was nobody smoking in the indoor dining room - nice change!
Nice small and stylish hotel. Friendly and responsive hotel staff. Hotel location is very good. Excellent big sand beach.
Location, comfort, quietness
Hotel staff very pleasant.
Pool area is not paved/flagged, just a grassy area/bare earth area. Very difficult not to get dirt or grit on you. Also, very difficult to get from the shower area at the beach without walking onto sand. Hotel rooms oldfashioned, furniture not new or modern, also smelled old. Bare, rusted fittings under sink area visible.
