    Superb 9.0 From 66 reviews

    Exceptional 10.0
    An excellent contemporary hotel near Chania
    This hotel is really nice. It's a modern contemporary design, with minimalist features throughout. The price of food is reasonable, though more expensive than what you would find outside in the tavernas. The quality of the buffets was excellent. They have many pools to choose from. Two children's pools. They claim they were heated, but I was expecting something closer to 32c in that case. Anyway, it was pleasant. We will be back to this place for sure! The beach is well serviced, with a minimal amount of sand to play in, however. Still it's a nice beach. A drive to Chania is not very far at all, maybe about 25min or 30min.

    Very Good 8.0
    Great Place to stay
    Beautiful hotel with nice rooms. Comfortable beds. Nice shower. Gorgeous pool area. Beach access. The location was great for going to Balos, Falssarna, and Elafonssi beaches. However, the food was disappointing. We stayed in 5 hotels throughout Greece, and the food was much better everywhere else. We also found the staff to be a bit unfriendly.
