This is a three star - basic hotel, its cheap and cheerful. Excellent chef, if you want chips with everything this is not for you, the food is mainly greek. The rooms are clean and very basic but all you want is somewhere to put your head down and wash, we have stayed in much better but found the rooms... More

Every summer the whole family (7 adults and 3 kids) go on a weeks hols together. This year we have opted for Crete and Venus Beach hotel. It is located on the border of Platanias and Gerani. It turns out the location couldn't be more fantastic. 20 min walk into heart of Platanias and 30 min bus ride to Chania.... More

I travelled alone, booking through Monarch (Cosmos) Holidays, but when I got here I was the only English person in the Hotel. As you can imagine I spent a VERY quiet week. The hotel was advertised as ALL INCLUSIVE but drinks were only served between 11am- 2.30pm & 5pm-10pm. Spirits only served after 6pm. The "All Inclusive bar" was a... More

I took my sons - 13 and 8 - for a weeks' holiday here, had no idea where to go and fell on this by very happy accident. As mentioned in other reviews, it is about 2 km from Platanias - easy to walk/bus there. But this hotel was perfect for us. Quiet - only 40 rooms approx, beautiful pool.... More

We spend wonderful eleven days in this hotel. We were very satisfied with the accomodation and all the services, the food was delicious, the bedroom was nice and tidy and really near the beach... The standard of the hotel reached its classification (***).

We went there for a week and it was one of the best holidays we ever spent. A pleasant, family-style, no-frills hotel in Gerani, just on the outskirts of Platanias, right on the beach. Nice pool and comfortable lounge bar (great drinks served by the barman!) with a view on to the sea. The immediate neighborhood is natural (as opposed... More

We stayed there a week in july 2008. It was our best holiday. The Hotel was not more than 2 stars. It was at the buondary of Platinas and Gerani. Little but clean room with very poor furniture. For the aircondition we paied 30 euros for the whole week. I bet you can not bear a day without it.. Our... More

After one week in this hotel I was terribly upset and disappointed. If you look at this hotel from outside it is very nice, the swimming pool in the back of the building looks also very attractive. But... The furnishing of the rooms is very poor and depressing, the beach in the back of the hotel (the hotel is situated... More
