Located right on the sandy beach of Frangokastello, Studios Stavris features a garden, a sun terrace and a snack bar. Breakfast in the relaxed Sfakiot style, chatting with the host Aristotleas about his olive harvest. Spacious room and veranda. Great facilities. Good through draft. Beautiful garden with lawn edging onto the beach. Walk straight into the sea. Warm fresh water shower on the edge of the beach.
Located 2297 feet from the beach of Orthi Ammos, Captain Tom is set amid a large garden with swimming pool surrounded by a sun terrace. Its studios and apartments enjoy free WiFi access. Captain Tom is a super host, friendly and kind. We could taste his own olive oil, delicious! The apartment was perfect, it had all the facilities. Comfortable bed, aircon, big TV, kitchen, balcony with views...and a big swimming pool (even in the late evening!) We had a problem in the apartment and captain Tom was super understanding and kind. We highly recommend this place! Thank you very much Captain!
Located in the area of Fragokastello, Monachus Monachus features a swimming pool with a big sun terrace, just 984 feet from the Libyan Sea. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfy and very clean. The sea view was excellent, the location near the sea. The pool was away from the building so no noise to the rooms.
In a most scenic location, enjoying the background of the Lefka Ori and the Libyan Sea, Kallicrates Village is located at Fragokastello, 6.8 mi east of Sfakia, at the southern coast of Crete. Very friendly staff. Exellent pool and poolside food and drinks. Kitchenette and large balcony in room made the stay very pleasent.
Featuring a private restaurant, Orthi Ammos is offering rooms with a private balcony and patio overlooking the sea, garden and the Venetian castle of Frangokastello. The location is perfect. The hotel is just a few metres from a gorgeous sandy beach. The room is good value for money. What I liked most about it was the private balcony in the garden, with a view of the castle, the mountains and the sea, ideal for those who want to take their breakfast privately and enjoy nature. The restaurant, the same as the hotel, low prices but delicious food and great view. The staff are friendly and helpful people. Don't forget to try the local cheese pies served with honey made by the kind hospitable owner.
Quietly located in Frangokastello Village and just 98 feet from the beach, Kritamos Beach Apartments is set in the Southern Coast of Chania. Our stay in the Kritamos was completely superb, Valantis is one of the nicest hosts we've ever had, all the communications and his attitude were so hospitable and sincere, he's always in touch to assist with any questions. Maria, who was helping with the cleaning, was also really nice and did a lot to help. Initially we planned on a first-floor apartment but Valantis gave us a two-bedroom apartment on the ground floor instead. Our apartment was very spacious and clean, simply and nicely decorated, had all the utils you need for cooking and living and an absolutely stunning sea view (it's the same from all the apartments). The property is perfectly located, there're sandy and rocky beaches on both sides in two minutes walking and several more beaches are available by bike (you can take them in the property freely) or car. The nearby supermarket and the Vatalos tavern are also very close and provide all the food and other essentials. Frangocastello is a very quiet and relaxing small town and will probably be perfect for all those who seek rest from the city life. We got only the most positive impressions after our stay at Kritamos Beach Apartments and completely recommend staying there.
We are regular visitors to Frango. It is a beautiful quiet location with a great selection o. While there are 4 or 5 tavernas near the Venetian castle tavernas ( Avoid Drousillites) the rest are spread out over 3/4 kilometres from Vatalos (Sfakia direction) on the west to Zorbas (highly recommended on the east (Plakias direction) Three distinct beach areas 1. Orthi Amnos long golden beach reached directly by steps near the beautiful Paradisos/Fata Morgana complex. 2. The Venetian castle again golden sands and water that remains shallow for a couple of hundred metres so very suitable for young kids or nervous swimmers/paddlers. 3. Near Stavros Taverna and Stavris Apartments and and stone beach with free sunbeds under shady trees. ( buy a drink or meal at the tavernas. Frango stretches over a flat plateau-like area (about 6Km X 3km oval shape locked between the Libyan sea and the impress Lefka Ori mountains close to the IMBROS GORGE. A car is very useful but not essential. Bicycles are wonderful alternative and some apartments provide these complimentary. For us the heart of the community is the Taverna Kali Cardia (Good Heart) run by Thanassos and his son Alexi. Always good company and with fabulous traditional home-cooked Cretan meals. We have been travelling here for over 25 years and regularly encounter friends on return visits in this homely taverna.
We loved southern Crete. Much less built up and touristy than the north. The beaches are nice and gently sloping - amazing turquoise water. We had a day when the wind was really blowing but otherwise it was beautifully calm and enjoyable. Great place to explore more of the southern coast from.
the accomodation we stayed in didn’t fullfill our expectations, but for just staying the night was it ok. Definitely recommend the beach. It is beautiful with just few people and amazing views, sand beach and sea. I also recommend the taverna above the beach, it was very tasty and for a perfect price. The best trip we made was the Imbros gorge, even though there were a lot of people but it was very nice.
It's 15th year of my family's holidays there. We really love the city and all surrounding places. It's impossible to get bored. I really love Vatalos Taverna and their family's concept for traditional cretan cuisine, cleanliness and friendship. Corali is a new nice discovery for us, after a short visit 2 years ago to one of their music nights.
Very scenic and quiet place by a nice beach. Relaxed atmosphere, beautiful landscape, good food, and quite detached from the touristy feel of other places in Crete. Highly recommend, especially for family trips.
Its a great beach resort. Very suitable for families with young children. Its quiet and life revolves around the tavernas. There are a few small supermarkets and you can buy excellent bread. Take all medicines you need with you. No pharmacy here.
The location is perfect. The hotel is just a few metres from a gorgeous sandy beach. The room is good value for money.

It was perfect for its class. We loved the owners, always there to cover any of our needs. The pool is big enough for all the customers, toasts and coffee are served by the pool and they also take good care of the cats that leave at the area. The position of the Hotel is amazing, you see the venetian Castle less than 200m away and the beaches are in walking distance, crowded or more secluded. There are also more than 7 tavernas and restaurants to try by the sea side.
Absolutely everything! Very kind and helpful owners And the property is wonderful, just have relaxing time in the middle of nowhere. Beautiful pool, chill music, few people... It makes a real luxury atmosphere. We didn’t take breakfast but just a lunch near the pool. It was a simple and excellent Dakos ! (food at my previous hotel was disgusting, here it is great) So far the best place I’ve been in Crête !
Captain Toms was a highlight of our Crete stay generous and hospitable. Peaceful in nature amongst an olive grove with a lovely pool. Great chance to relax unwind and slow down. Thoroughly enjoyed Captain Tom taking the time to chat with us and share local Raki. Thank you Captain Tom would have loved to stay longer.
The location is perfect, just few steps away from a near beach. Frangokastello is just 3/4mins by car. Private parking and eating in the property (family-run) should not be an option, at least stop for one dinner, it definetely worth it! The room is cozy with private bathroom, small porch and wonderful landscape.
Very clean, great view of the sea from the balcony, the sea water was crystal clear only a few steps from the Hotel. With free WiFi, parking space, very safe, no flies at the time we were there(early July!). AC in the room was great as well.
Super location right on the beach and beside the castle with a choice of tavernas and supermarkeyt in close distance in the beautiful hamlet of Frangokastello. You couldn't ask for a better location.
Room was very clean, next to one of the best beaches in Crete. Staff was extremely helpful and the restaurant near it offers a variety of delicious dishes. Highly recommended.
It was clean, airy, the kitchen had all the needed facilities. It was quiet calm and super comfortable.
