Our room had a separate bedroom to the living/kitchen. Very spacious. Great shower. Terraced area to sit in the evening with a glass of local wine. Perfectly located for the beach and the town with numerous restaurants. Breakfast self serve apart from bacon and egg if you choose. Perfect break and so glad we booked a year in advance.

Hotel has a lovely chilled vibe, right on the beach so you can hear the waves from your room. Situated by lots of bars an restaurants so plenty to keep you busy. Family run hotel an they couldn’t be nicer people, nothing is to much Trouble. Breakfast s so nice with added extras such as home made jam an marmalade (best I’ve ever tasted). I visited right at the beginning of the season so hotel is very quite, nothing like having the pool an beach to yourself. Thank you to the family for a fabulous holiday, an involving my son an me in your Easter celebrations. So nice here I don’t want to leave, I will definitely be returning. Thank you again. Xx

Very nice hotel for the price, our apartment was beautiful! Absolutely no concerns about it, except maybe beware of thin walls if you are easily disturbed by neighbors, cars etc. The apartment was beautifully decorated and was cleaned every day. The balcony was nice, you could sit outside and eat or chat. The pool area was a bit small, you could not fit many sunbeds there. The pool itself was nice and clean, but small. The restaurant at the hotel, the pool bar, served very nice food. It had a large selection of meals and everything we tried was delicious. Around 5-10€ per dish, so not very expensive. Breakfast was served at the pool bar, everything tasted good and I very much enjoyed the fact that they served darker bread as well, not just white. You were served coffee or tea, 1 glass of fresh juice, 3 different kinds of bread, cheese, ham, vegetables, butter and marmalade. Then you could choose one of the following: eggs (fried/scrambled/boiled etc), pancakes or yoghurt with fruit. The beach was made mostly out of rocks, not sand. 2 sunbeds cost 6€ per day, even for people who stayed at the hotel, which we did not know beforehand. The staff were very friendly, if there was any problems or concerns they fixed it immediately. For example our balcony door was difficult to open, so they came up to our room and showed us how to open it right away. Nice location as well, only 5 min walk to the bus stop, where you can take the bus to Chania. It is in the middle of Platanias, so lots of supermarkets, shops and restaurants around. However the hotel itself is closely surrounded by other hotels. For the price, this hotel is great. For me, the only thing that brings it from a 5 to a 4 is the wifi. Wifi was only available at the pool bar, it didn't even reach to the pool or beach. During our stay the weather was not very nice, so we spent a lot of time in our room and it would have nice to have wifi there. Same for when you were laying on the beach. Would definitely recommend this hotel!
