‘Philoxenia’, the Greek equivalent word for hospitality (friend of the stranger literally in The Greek language) is part of our Cretan genes, and Steris Elegant Beach Hotel has a long history of hospitality, of two generations.
Our hotel was and remains a family business since it’s founding, in 1978, by Mrs Evangelia, the matriarch of the family and her husband Mr. Evangelos.
Athanasia continued the legacy with passion, vision and perseverance by rebuilding the hotel in 1999 and then renovating it in 2010. Ever since, she never seizes to innovate, renovate and reinvent the business, according to current hotelier trends but more importantly according to the guests’ needs and expectations.
Today The Steris Elegant Beach Hotel boasts 32 contemporary, colorful and individually decorated studios, apartments and suites, paying great attention to design details and amenities, aiming to provide premium hospitality to our guests.
The most rewarding feeling for the administration and staff is when we welcome back loyal guests that keep returning each year, acknowledging the fact that Steris Elegant Beach Hotel feels like their home away from home.
The feature that mostly appeals to our first-time guests is that the hotel’s location meets the expectations of everyone’s wish list. Either you are eager to spend a whole day on the beach or wonder through the picturesque alleys of the old Venetian port, the hotel’s location is as convenient as it can be! Just walk across the street and lay your beach towel on a magnificent awarded beach, or strolle along the beach on the pedestrian paving and in 1 kilometer you’ll find yourself in the heart of the old Venetian town and its Port!
Elegant and colorful, the accommodation offered at Steris Hotel is friendly and exclusive at the same time, creating a unique experience you discover yourself when visiting Rethymno, Crete.Discover
