Wonderful place, amazing seaview, delicious food and very nice people! I would like to recommend to everyone, who appreciate places without crowd or shopping centres. It's a dream place to rest and relax. It's the best place.... I have just come back home and I miss this place so much.

Room: We booked junior suite N°218 with seaview in this hotel with 50 rooms in total (not a huge resort) which was spacious for the two of us. This room had sideways seaview, but was cleaned on a daily basis (also new towels for bathroom & beach every day). Airco stops working as soon as you leave the room with... More

Summary The Grand Bay will give you a good experience and feeling of tranquility due to its excellent location, nice facilities and the adults only policy. It’s nice and clean and you’ll get sleeping quality. The service level is good whereas the food leaves some to ask for. I would recommend the hotel to couples who wants a silent, sunny... More

It is a very small hotel with amazing staff. They really like to help their clients. You do not have to listen to terrible disco music either in the pool area or in the beach. Food is really nice and prices are reasonable. However, in my opinion there a few problems. First of all, sea is the worst in Chania.... More

Grand Bay is located at the beach, in a calm and quiet neighbourhood. The hotel is relatively small, and the staff goest he extra mile to make you happy.
