The hotel is located in the heart of Platanias village, only a few kilometers from the city of Chania. This is a beachfront hotel. The breakfast was extensive, emphasizing in the Cretan cuisine. Although we had the half board package including dinner as well, we had dinner in the hotel only once. The food was ok, but in general below...

The hotel is superbly located on the beach. Lovely clean hotel with pleasant staff. Food was very good the only downside is we did go all inclusive and you can only use one bar to get your inclusive drinks which is a shame as there was such lovely areas being unused in the hotel. But it has not stopped us...

I would really recommend this resort..I was a bit disappointed at first for the partial sea view(I was expecting full sea view..please read carefully when picking the room),but then everything else at the resort was just brilliant. Staff at the desk,at the restaurant,the cleaning ladies,the kids club guys were all very helpful and super friendly. Food was ok.. massive choice...

Great hotell in the center of Platanias. Short way to any bar,dining facility. You can either walk or make bicycle trips.Short way to Chania,always a bus. Vigli restaurant is nice at the top of Platanias,well worth a trip.

Stayed 1 week in Porto Platanias Beach june 2016. Good standard on rooms. Good location on beach in very touristy Platanias. Platanias is litle Scandinavia, and high price level. Good quality on all inclusive food and drinks. Beach was good and clean. As many other places, people layed out their towels, to reserve sunbeds. Taxi from airport costs 40 euro.

Prior to our visit in October; I had read many reviews on this hotel and mindful too of the several reported negative comments. However, these were not justified when everything is balanced First impressions are very important - an excellent front and reception with friendly helpful & passionate reception staff. The bedrooms are typical for a hot country - large,...

We stayed here for 4 nights in October. It was really lovely. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The bar staff were fantastic! Our room was clean and well serviced. We did the all inclusive there and it was well worth it. The food (buffet) was filled with loads of variety (breakfast, lunch and dinner) Food variety would be...

This hotel was lovely it catered for everyone. It had an adult only area and pool but also had areas for families. Food was great and they catered for everyone again you could eat in the upstairs area which was quieter. Views were stunning and staff attentive. We had been sold this as a 4/5 star hotel which I would...

What a great hotel. The staff are lovely, especially the bar staff who really have to put up with a lot from some quite demanding older customers! I can imagine in peak season in the evening it can be ridiculously crowded as it was relatively busy at the one all inclusive bar by the pool. George, Manolis and the nice...

Well designed friendly hotel. They have squeezed a lot into the plot area. It's not as big as looks on the picture. Nice spread of pool areas. Food excellent and varied. Animation bit limited in scope . The wifi works well all around the hotel, impressed my kids. Don't make the most of being on the shore
