Just came back from the Rania beach hotel and it was the best holiday so far! Everything was close to the hotel, beach, restaurants, shops etc. Our studio had an ocean view, balcony next to the Olive Tree restaurant, but we didn't mind. Restaurant had a nice lunch and dinner and we ate there few times. We didn't have breakfast...

Nice apartments, with walking distance to restaurants in both Platanias and Agia Marina and very close to the beach. The breakfast is served outdoors with a view to the sea, under a roof to protect you from the sun. The people serving the tasteful breakfast will provide you with a good start for the day. Nice pool area with plenty...

Hotel Rania is just close to the beach. There are two buildings, we stayed in the older one, closer to the street. There was free wi-fi, in the room the connection sometimes was pretty poor but we managed anyway. A small kitchenette was equipped with the basics, coffee maker, toaster, a small cooking plate, cups, glasses etc. A large beach...

Stayed at the Rania beach for 10 nights in June and was lovely and relaxing. The hotel is right on the beach and they have their own restaurant The Olive Tree that is open all day and is great. When we arrived we were greeted by Stella who runs the family business and is a credit to the hotel and...

Just returned from a lovely holiday in Crete. Spent the first 3 nights at the Rania Hotel and loved it. Right next to the beach and all the local bars and restaurants. The Olive Tree is the hotel's restaurant and is definitely worth visiting.

Rania is very nice family hotel run by wonderful Stela and her mother. Both are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are super clean and big enough with daily cleaning, hair dryer, safe deposit box and airconditioning as a bonus. When the wind is strong, you can hide by the pool. There are free sunbeds and Stela will definitely offer...

Booked through Booking.com. No previous experience here, but an absolute +++ picking a frontal seaside appartment proved to be great. The Olive Tree open air restaurant just with feets nearly in the sea is a modern approach to Greek cuisine; congrats.

Very nice hotel with recently renovated apartments in one of the buildings. Good sized pool and facilities close by. Beach just a few steps away but not at all children friendly.

Located just off the beach with convenient walking distance to both Platanias and Agia Marina. Rooms are clean and not too small (ours anyway). The staff is helpful and the Olive Tree restaurant located on the premises serves solid greek cuisine (don't miss the Cretan dakos!). Air conditioning in the rooms at no charge is a nice bonus. As often...

Very nice and clean hotel. The location is great, and it is close to everything. Shops, restaurants, beach, bus-stop. The staff was friendly and helpfull. We had a two-room apartment, and it was ok. The only negative with it was that it had been smoked in, and smelled of old sigarettesmoke. The pool was fine, with a children-section. When I...
