Stayed at the Porto Sissi apartments for 5 nights in june 2015. The apartment was clean and spacious and we had access to 2 balconies both with sea views. We only met Anthi the owner twice but she was always very pleasant as were all the locals we met.
The apartments are opposite a small super market and within easy walking distance of the local bars and restaurants There is mini golf next door which is a fun activity in the evening and has a bar there too run by a lovely local family. The Jolly Roger down the road which is run by an ex pat couple and was good for live music.
Parking was what you could find in the local car parks and on the road by the small supermarket, but we always managed to get park, however this was considered low season. The road next to the apartments is not a road! It is actually steps and several cars seem to have made the mistake of driving down it.
The pool area was nice and clean, with sunbeds and parasols. The pool was small but not to small if all you want is a quick dip to cool down. The views by the pool of the harbour and the sea are lovely. If I ever plan to go back to Crete I would definitely consider staying here again.
I will start with a small review about the hotel. It is absolutely amazing, the facilities are wonderful. Almost all of the staff were helpful (there was a woman on the reception who didn't have any concept of distance... 25 minute walk to Malia?! 1 hour, anyway, I digress) the hotel was clean and welcoming. The hotel was mainly German and Russian people, not an issue really we didn't come to make new friends in England, we have enough of those as it is! However there was a nice man from the Netherlands who was friendly. The entertainment was about as cringy and amazing as we had hoped, the couples night was very funny. The fire show and the glass was both horrifying and spectacular. The pool was magnificent and the beach was great. The food was outstanding and both my girlfriend and I ate far more than we thought physically possible and became friends with the guy and gal who cook the pasta fresh in front of you. The absolute best part of the entire holiday for me was, Kostas! The barman. He is an absolute wizard on the bar and I would very much like him to come to Brighton next time and make me a piña colada. I did a little bit of maths and worked out I had about 10-12 litres of piña colada over the course of a boozy week. He was very friendly and his English was good. If he doesn't receive a raise immediately I will take it as a personal insult. He was the best member of staff I've been served by.
A very happy holidaymaker from Brighton.
Lovely hotel with great staff. We were the first to arrive in the season and the hopitality offered to us was excellent. All the staff were helpful and friendly and the rooms were clean and modern. The large reception and bar area is lovely for relaxing in and the pool is lovely. Food was delicious and of a good standard with reasonable prices.

Small to medium hotel( 5 star by Crete standards nearer 4 by what I am used to elsewhere in Europe ) Set back from the noise and bustle of the main roads in Sissi it is nonetheless within easy walking distance of all amenities beaches, shops, restaurants etc. Sissi also gives easy access by car to lots of places of interest. Friendly and helpful staff, high standards of cleanliness. We had a very comfortable room and thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay. We chose B&B as we wanted to experience the good local restaurants but when we did have a day lounging beside the hotel pool we had a very good lunches from the bar menu ( coffee from the bar is good too) Hotel had a mixture of nationalities and was full when we stayed did not feel crowded - there was never a problem getting a sun lounger!

Sissi is one of few villages in east Crete that hasn't felt the strain of the area's many visitors. The town's picturesque port, formed by the sea burrowing deep into the land, is a long and unique narrow bay. A pier on one side of the harbor secures local fishing boats. The nearby beach offers swims sheltered by a rocky outcrop, and a hotel garden provides tranquility among its palms and flowers.
