Our favorite Cretan getaway
Staying at the Corissia Princess has become an annual highlight for my daughter and me. The hotel is clean, the staff exceptionally helpful and friendly and everything essential for a holiday on the beach is there. The beds are comfy, the Wifi good. A fresh bottle of water is provided every day, and you can make your own instant coffee or tea. The bathroom fixtures are state-of-the-art... The beach is literally a few steps from the hotel. The hotel is located in a cove protected from strong Cretan north “meltemi” winds, and the soft sand makes it easy to get in and out of the water. It is shallow for quite a distance, so it is safe. The water is refreshed by little streams running into the sea from the White Mountains, and is clear and refreshing, even in the summer heat. The beach beds are comfortable and sturdy, and the boys at the beach bar provide great service... Read review on TripAdvisor

A wonderful location in an idyllic bay with the longest and most beautiful sandy beach in Crete
The newly renovated midscale hotel is set in a quiet, but central location, directly next the longest sandy beach and only a short stroll from the delightful town square of Georgioupolis on the island of Crete in Greece. An ideal starting point to explore the beautiful and varied surrounding countryside.
The location of the hotel invites you to stroll romantically through the village streets with shops, bars and tavernas, or to linger in the village square and at the original fishing harbour.
Georgioupolis is an idyllic fishing village on the north-western coast of Crete. Located in a heavenly bay in a lush river plain with a rugged mountain landscape in the background, the popular seaside resort is well known for its long, fine sandy beach and shallow, crystal-clear waters. We have made the unique flair of this cosy seaside resort an important part of our hotel philosophy, because that is just what holidays on Crete are all about.
Not far away are the towns of Chania and Rethymno. Georgioupolis is located about 35 km east of Chania and about 22 km west of Rethymno: a very quiet but central location in Crete, ideal for holidaymakers who also like to explore the island.
The village borders the main road of the island and is therefore very well connected either by bus or by car with the ports and airports of Crete as well as with every other place on Crete.
