Right on one of the most beautiful spots of Crete, on the gorgeous, long sandy beach of Georgioupolis, at the foot of the impressive White Mountains, in close distance to both the most attractive towns of the island, Chania and Rethymnon, and to the idyllic lake of Kournas. Right in the green west of this unique island, lies the Orpheas Resort.
In this charming, friendly and lovingly created hotel, you can find peace of mind, revel in the summerly beach life, go for wonderful excursions and enjoy the Cretan hospitality day by day. With gardens and lounges filled with tranquillity, inspiration and the smile of the staff, Orpheas Resort is a true oasis on Crete.

All rooms are designed to offer maximal comfort and a homely embrace. Arty and inspired, in earthy colors and with unexpected details, they elegantly interpret the local traditions. All rooms with balcony or terrace and bathroom with tub or shower.
Like a film scenery, the pool and the surrounding area will gain you at first sight! In an oasis of gardens with countless flowers, with artistic touches of plaster sculptures and particularly building elements

Very near to local amenities and shops, such as supermarket, gas station, pharmacy, etc., the Hotel's location allows for carefree vacations. Its proximity to the beach, the White Mountains, Kournas Lake, as well as to the two picturesque towns of Rethymno and Chania, make Orpheas a unique holiday resort and an ideal starting point for excursions.

Beautiful resort with a family atmosphere
The resort has a beautiful garden, pools and the hotel itself is in a good condition. The rooms are kept simple but clean and the bathroom was new.
The distance to the sandy beach is short, it is located next to the pool bar. Sunloungers as well as parasols are available for some euros.
The hotel team is very friendly and attentive but never intrusive. The food at the buffet was very tasty with a wide range of different food. Every day show cooking has been peformed.
The location is next to some supermarkets and the bus stop and just 4 km from Georgioupoli.
The one and only criticism is that there´s less privacy on the balcony, due to insufficient visual protection.
My 10nd stay in this resort
Since 2010, the first year I discover this hotel, it was like coming home! In 2016 and 2017, I spent 2 times for holiday.
A charming resort, for adults only.
The decoration is amazing. Every year we are surprised to see new things.
The staff is my second family, most of them are the same people since my first time.
The garden, an heaven. So quite, full of flowers and at the end: the blue sea!! PARADISE for sure.
Charming, romantic and very quiet
Strand: with sand and many km to walk. The hotel offers beach umbrellas with safe, wich I think is a great idea. When you are only two, you both can go swimm and do not have to worry about your belongings (mobil phone, purse,...).
Room: decoration was not the strong point but the most important thing, the bed, was perfect.
Buffet: high variety, high cuality, tradicional food and the service coud’nt be nicer.
Minibar: quite cheap prices. You don’t need to buy water at the supermarket every day becarse the price of the minibar is the same like there.
They also offer excursions with a reasonable price.
A wonderful place to stay! Very polite and helpful staff ! Excellent location close to the sea with three nice swimming pools! The food was very nice and the prices were very good. We recommend it very much !
