A small complex, located right by the sea, 15 km to the west of of Hania. The place is quite secluded and in fact was quite hard to find as there are no signs pointing to it on the main road. Parking is very easy. Our appartment was large, with a big kitchen and a nice bedroom. Air conditioning was...

Different types of suites. 50 m from the see with nice pool even for children. Two high performing women presents traditional food, if you like to stay on site (organization and kitchen). Every day fresh what they got on the market. It is possible to wake up with singing birds.

Me and my family (wife and two kids) spent a relaxing 10 days at the Caretta Beach in June. We had carefully selected this Hotel as it was situated directly on the Gerani beach as we wanted to step directly from the room to the beach without having to cross any road. We chose a Seaside Suite which offered a...

“Rooms in front building have view of Med Sea; I do not think room in back buildings really do. By booking early we got CENTER TOP; a most amazing view of pool/beach/sea.”

“Staff will give you a set of keys and a "key for electricity" and tell you mustn't detach any of them. But if you want to keep the air con on, while you are away, simply detach that "key for electricity" and lock the door. Keep the shutters closed in the heat, OK this obscures the lovely view, but really makes a difference. Hotels helps in arranging taxis, booking cars, but honestly there are some crazy drivers in Greece - speeding and driving right next to the boot of the other car. Our taxis almost got invloved in an accident... Yes, we were with two small kids, but that detail wouldn't make the driver drive more carefully. No entertainment for kids (no slides, nothing)”
