At last! Sitia Bay. A tasteful place to stay in Sitia. A much-needed, pleasing base from which to explore the east of Crete.

Sitia has lacked hotel we can be happy to suggest ever since we can remember. Sitia Bay hotel, completed & opened during 2005, has now filled this gap.

Executed with enthusiasm for exceptional quality of build and materials - well done it is; 2 minutes walk from Sitia's harbour-front square, with wonderful sea views. Steps from Sitia's sandy beach, just across the low-traffic seafront road.

Sound insulation, both between rooms and the exterior, is exceptional. Special sealing materials are used in paints, finishes and construction to produce a result in and outside the rooms, of lasting quality.

Lush and attractive gardens, complete with soothing waterfalls, create a welcome frontage to the hotel building and also "frame" some of the views to the sea.

A sizeable swimming pool, with hydromassage, in the courtyard on the back side of the hotel, with shaded patios, sunbeds and umbrellas completes the scene of comfort.

Also, try the view from the roof, at different times of day, for a panorama of Sitia bay itself!
