Welcome To

Giannoulis Hotels

Tradition in hospitality

Driven by our commitment to hospitality since 1981, our hotels are family-run since day one, aiming at providing you with holidays that leave lasting impressions primarily because of the way we made you feel during your stay. We always greet you with a warm smile and treat you like our extended family of friends, which, especially in Crete, means the world.

Be our guest

Giannoulis Hotels & Resorts represent the Cretan holiday ideal across our beachfront hotels in two of Crete’s prefectures, Chania and Ierapetra. We have created five havens of beachfront bliss, doused in glorious sunshine and packed with the culinary delight of Crete’s finest ingredients. Some are for adults-only, others have a focus on wellness while one is entirely designed for families. Whichever Giannoulis hotel or resort you choose, you will experience moments of authentic Cretan holiday fulfillment.
