A delightful and friendly hotel across a small pebbly beach


Overlooking the Gulf of Mirabello and across the street from a small pebbly beach lies the well-established Hermes Hotel. Delightful and friendly, the hotel offers a welcoming atmosphere which makes it the ideal accommodation for an amazing holiday to Crete.

Featuring a rooftop saltwater pool and outdoor terrace restaurant, each amenity is centred on making the most of the stunning bay views which stretch around the building. Perfect for a romantic getaway or a sun-filled family holiday, the hotel caters for all.

Situated within a ten-minute walk from the town’s centre, the bustling harbour area, a popular meeting place for locals and tourists alike, is lined with cafes and restaurants. There are also a variety of bars and discos in the vicinity for those who seek night-time entertainment.

The fishing village of Aghios Nikolaos has plenty to offer alongside picturesque scenery. Nearby ancient ruins will satisfy history enthusiasts, while nature lovers can revel in the colourful, natural surroundings provided by the beautiful lake, mountains and bay.
