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!
The hotel has a lovely ambience. All the staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to be very helpful with tips and information on places of interest to visit. Although it was only the first week of the season when we were there and there were limited guests and therefore limited choice the food was excellent.
The hotel is set back from the main road and does not have a name which is visible from the main road. Anyone driving there on first arrival will have difficulty finding it and especially at night. There is a need to stop and ask locals for guidance.
Location - far from big noisy cities, which are at the same time not too far and can be easily reached by car or bus (bus stop is just in front of the hotel) if you wish to. Nice places in the area to see - Georgioupolis, Kourna Lake, small cities in the mountains. Great beaches. No stupid irritating animation and guests intelligent and not noisy! Romantic design. Helpful receptionists! Very affordable price for a 4 stars hotel!
The fountain near our building was making too much noise even louder than the sea - very irritating, so sometimes it was difficult to fall asleep. Some food at breakfast buffet which was supposed to be hot, was slightly warm and so was usually water for tea which was brought by waiters in a kettle. We had to ask them to change it to a real hot one almost every time. We also expected more traditional Greek food in breakfast buffet (we had only breakfast in the hotel), rather than international. Its quality also requires a bit of improvement.
The architecture and decoration , the garden the pond were something different than other hotels . The room was amaying on the same stzle as the hotel , clean and tidy . The breakfast was full and for any taste . The personnel was smiling and polite .
Lovely experience, fantastic service, great breakfast. A definite suggestion
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.
