Nice, just needs a few tweaks
The hotel was nice and the staff were friendly although not always that attentive. Rooms are quite small and there not enough sunloungers for the guests.

Very Good 8.0
Staff was absolutely wonderful, warm, and welcoming, particularly Iosef (Joseph) at the Front Desk. He went above and beyond to ensure my stay was a positive one....very professional, caring, kind, and just a wonderful human being. Also Christina at the Front Desk, Manousous at the Main Bar, the General Mgr, and the international staff from many countries. They all made the difference between an okay experience and a wonderful experience. Again, grazie mille!!

Amazing hotel. Rooms are a little small if there's more than one person staying in the room. Service was great. The receptionist were very friendly and helpful. About a 15 minute drive from Chania and about 10 minutes from Platonias.

You get what you pay for
The hotel is a bit worn down and needs a refurbishment. However it is inexpensive and is very close to the beach. The restaurant staff are very nice and provide good service. The front desk staff are not the best; it's fine if you don't require any additional service beyond check-in and check-out, but I had a poor experience with their guest relations and front service staff in arranging a hair appointment. The housekeeper assigned to my room did not speak English and only came to clean while I was still sleeping in the morning; I tried every day to have her come later but she never did, so for the three days I did not have my room serviced.

Poor 2.0
Unfortunate experience, poor management
When we arrived they did a check in and seated us at dinner for what they had saved on plates from the buffet (we were booked all inclusive). But it went downhill. We were taken with the luggage guy to a room fifty meters away across the street in some other townhouse complex first. Turns out the room hadn't been cleaned. It was late and we were traveling with our kid so hadn't asked earlier but this time we pressed for our beachfront room. They told us they had none left, only a single room. next room they supposedly had available. This was also across the street in another complex they own. After a fifteen minute struggle to get the door open the luggage guy gave up again. Went back and got to yet another room. It was facing another building and was also pretty small, no way they could fit the extra cot there. Left the family there and went back to speak with the manager. Couldn't get in touch. Insisted on some other room that was beachfront, we were only there for the night and had booked prepaid weeks in advance! Finally we're transfer to a sister hotel called Santa Marina plaza with strict instructions to vacate for other guests at 12. The staff and room quality there wetter excellent. Tried getting in touch with via phone but it wss a our connection. Yet to hear back on my email questions.
