We were deeply dissapointed by the apartment, the environments, the location, the "service". We Actually switched to another hotel just across the street after a week, and finally got the vacation we had longed for. Elmas Dream is a filthy and unfriendly hotel. Avoid!

Dear Linda E, I am truly sorry for your experience during your visit in Crete. It is not fair to you that your holidays are ruined like that. Please allow me also to be very disappointing and upset when I read the words filthy and unfriendly characterizing Elma's Dream. We spend more than 15 hours a day serving our guests... More

We stayed here for 8 days and couldn't of been more perfect for us. The hotel was a few feet away from the beach, stores and even had its own pool and cocktails. All the staff where the nicest people we have met and they would go out of their way to make you happy in any way they could.... More

This is a beautiful villa, located in a quiet residential area of Agioi Apostoli, 3km west of Chania town centre. Three sandy beaches are in close proximity; the nearest is 500m but our preference was Golden Beach, 1km away. Lidl and In-ka supermarkets are 300m and there are numerous restaurants, patisseries, cafes, car/bike hire offices, etc, within easy walk. The... More

I visited with my partner Kostas in April. This place has a lovely location close to scenery and Chania. Andreas was very helpful and accommodating. Our apartment was nice, modern and spacious. This is a great place to relax. I was tired from my journey and had the best nights sleep! See you again in August. Lorraine and Kostas. 🎈

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small quiet paradise for relaxation and amusement but not apart from all the fun, Elmas Dream Apartments is built just 100 meters up the beach of Chrissi Akti. Next is the area of Agii Apostoloi, just 3km west of the city of Chania. Away from main streets and only 100 meters from the beach, but close to Chania town and everything you may need. Do you need more to make your holidays really enjoyable? ... more   less
