Me & my partner were celebrating here our anniversary and my partner's birthday, and we definitely selected the best hotel for these occassions!
The hotel is beautiful, really nice and tidy, clean everywhere. The location is great too as it's close to Chania (ca. 15 min) and many other nice places.
The staff is 5* from each department, from the reception to the cleaning staff, and we would like to highlight Kyriaki from reception/reservation, who gave us awesome daily tips and shared so many useful tips with us. From the restaurant team we've got Zafiris (thanks for the nice foods), Pavlos (thanks for the great drinks) and Hermione (thanks for the happy moments), who are the best in all Crete! Thank you for everything, you are unforgettable.
We truly enjoyed our time here, discovered the island with our rented car and visiting many beaches in the nearby.
We definitely recommend this hotel for any occassions!
We stayed in this hotel for a week at the end of September.The hotel is located in a lovely area of Agia Marina which is 10 km away from Chania, nothing to worry there is a bus stop in front of the hotel. The beach is right in front of the hotel and there is a lovely terrace where you can enjoy your breakfast and other meals with an amazing sea view. The room was nice and we had a great view of the pool and sea. The bar staff were very friendly and welcoming us with a smile and good vibe every Day. The best coffe was served by Pavlo in the morning and in the evening we teasted the best coctails made by Vasilis. Great guys with a great sense of humor.
Overall we had a pleasant stay. Highly recommending this place.

Our stay in this hotel was lovely, unfortunately because of Covid some parts of the hotel was closed to visitors, however the fantastic staff, including Rena at reception and Zafiris in the bar but specifically Vasilis made our stay even more welcoming, they were so friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel when the pandemic is over, as you will see the full potential of what this hotel has to offer. I wish them all the very best in the future.
