This magical place ...
In two distinct buildings the hotel is the modest princess of one of the most special places in Crete, Loutro.
An unparalleled scenic location, with bright airy rooms, crisp quality at low price just unique.
The hotel, created with quality, comfort and simplicity, is made up of two buildings.
Almost all rooms have a wondrous mountain and sea view. Rooms have private balcony, bathroom and air conditioning. Each part of the hotel has a bar-cafe and breakfast area.
Hotel Porto Loutro I (on the beach) building sits fairly and squarely in the centre of the small pebble beach, forming the focal point of the arched bay - a few steps from your room and you are at tempting water's edge.
Hotel Porto Loutro II (on the hill) building perches a few steps above the west side of the tiny bay (with a terrace bar and view worth travelling thousands of miles for).
Hotel Porto Loutro on the Hill features a bar-restaurant, a sauna and 23 rooms, some with Libyan Sea views. Wi-Fi is available at extra cost. All rooms are air-conditioned and come with a satellite TV. Each is also fitted with a fridge and a safe. A laptop can be provided upon request and availability. Featuring a shower, private bathrooms also come with a hairdryer and free toiletries. Guests can enjoy a meal at the restaurant or a refreshing drink from the on-site bar. They can also relax at the sun terrace.
Gazing at the mountains, listening to the clanking goat bells, reading, swimming, endless choice of walks and climbs - visit Anopolis and the Aradena Gorge, take boat trips to your choice of beach-for-the-day. Peace and quiet with no cars!
Please note that Hotel Porto Loutro is unable to accommodate children under 7 years old.
"There is nowhere else like it in Crete and having traveled in search of wonderful and heart-warming places, I have not found any equal to Loutro....the view from the hotel terrace bar is one of the best in the world, of this I'm sure." One of the more quotes from Porto Loutro guests!
Renting a car: As you will be taking the ferry to get to Loutro, please note that you cannot take a car with you to Loutro (it is car-free), so you will need to park your car in Sfakia harbour. Of course, if you are staying at Loutro for many days, perhaps it is better to use a taxi to travel to/from Sfakia, rather than have your rental car "sit" at the parking area.

Why we like it
- A perfect place to walk, flop, read , swim, paint, eat healthily, sip wine, and if you poke around sample simple, but genuinely Cretan food, with kind happy people.
- You have your own balcony and sea view (there are also three rooms at Porto Loutro I with a tree or side view, shadier and even quieter).
- This is a sea view with a difference, the bay, the mountains, the islet that edges one side of the bay and the distant glimmer of Sfakia and Frangokastello at night.
- Alison, Sofia and all the staff at Porto Loutro are great and very friendly. Feel very at home during our stay is not a cliche.
- We love Loutro the place where there are no car.... and Porto Loutro is so great as from your bed, you can see the sea! Having breakfast under the shade of the trees and watching the sea as you can almost touch it is a wonderful experience. Alison & Sofia are wonderful hosts.
What to know
- The only connection between Loutro and Chora Sfakion is by ferry or private boat taxis.
- Please note that Hotel Porto Loutro is unable to accommodate children under 7 years old.
