    We can see that a real effort is being made to improve the hotel and to keep it nice. These improvements (new air conditioners, t,v's fresh paint and landscaping) are noticeable and make a very nice impression. The staff made every effort to make...

    Super easy check in as we were out of hours. Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. Very clean rooms and beautiful grounds. The pool area is fantastic and there is a spectacular sunset. The strawberry mojito is fab!

Zorbas Beach Hotel is a beachfront complex of 53 apartments and studios that lies on the most beautiful part of the Akrotiri peninsula in Chania. It is situated in the most privileged position that boasts stunning views over the Cretan Sea. It is located ideally right on a sandy beach, inside 30.000 m2 of private land. The hotel offers the unrivalled Cretan hospitality and the feeling of being at home, not far away from the picturesque city of Chania in Crete. Conveniently located 12 km from the airport and only 13 km from Chania city, it offers the ideal combination of accessibility and tranquillity. Set right a few steps from clean and well maintained scenic sandy beaches, the hotel is surrounded by an unspoiled natural area that protects it from the city's noise and crowds. The crystal sea in front of it, the excellent home-made traditional food, a very personal approach, as well as the comfortable apartments and studios will make your stay an unforgettable one.

I decided, after having finished my Master's & Doctoral studies, to return back home and welcome people from all over the world to Zorbas Beach Hotel.

The area is close to the historical and archaeological sites and in ideal location from which to explore Western Crete. The friendliness and Cretan hospitality of our hotel stuff can be very helpful for the arrangement of car rentals and excursions to worth visiting places. The Peninsula of Akrotiri, located north east of Chania, is known for its calming and relaxing way of life. It offers some of the most stunning and scenic beaches of all Chania. The most beautiful include Kalathas beach, Ag. Onoufris, Maherida beach, Tersanas beach, Marathi beach, Loutraki beach and of course our very own Stavros beach located just a few steps from the hotel. The impressive Monastery of Gouverneto also known as the Monastery of “John the Hermit” stands close to Zorbas Beach and just a little further you can visit the Monastery of Catholicon which is beautifully built in the depths of a wild gorge and can be viewed by all.
