I would recommend this hotel for those who want an escape from noisy cities.The best for families with youngsters and older people. The area is away form noisy roads, next to olive tree farm and some lovely goats graze across the hotel. A car is a must here, because there is no other way to reach the nearby town or... More

Very good location. Close to the Balos Lagoon and Falassarna Beach. Not too far from the Chania Airport ( about an hour by car ). Good starting point to your holidays. Over an hour to the Elafonisi Beach. Very good restaurant at the top of the village. All staff from Balos Beach Hotel...very friendly and helpfull. Rooms are clean. Swimming... More

To stay here, you have to have a car. Then you could be easily connected the town with appr. 7~8 minutes drive. The staff is really nice and helpful. The fridge helps a lot store the fruits and drinks in summer time. The swimming pool is very big with nice sea view. Huge balcony with table and chairs, it would... More

A resort-style hotel that we visited because friends decided to stay here. The location is a bit isolated as there's nothing next to the hotel itself and the nearest shops/town is a few kilometres away. So a car is necessary unless you want to spend your whole time staying and eating at the hotel. The staff were friendly. We had... More

We stayed in this hotel for some days this summer and, considering the standard this was really very very nice. The room was big with a very beautiful balcony with sea view. The pool was big and clean. We did not eat in the hotel but all other services were really very good. I strongly recommend it.

We stayed here for just 1 night, the room was massive and we had quite the nice view of the sea. The shower for some reason had no curtain and the bathroom was leaking 99% of the time, other than that the staff were extremely helpful and it was a 30 minute walk from the port to get to Balos...

We stayed in Balos Beach Hotel for a week in aug 2013 and went as a couple. Stayed in room 209. The hotel appeared to be what we expected: private place with well kept grounds and a pool. It appeared the hotel was fully booked while we were staying, but we still felt very private, not crowded at all. The... More

I always felt that Greek hospitality is the most important factor, when one chooses summer holidays in Greece. Well, this is not the point at all in Balos beach hotel. We chose it for its location, through the Balos beach hotel site and booked it through the phone for a family holiday. The rooms were large and spacious but all... More

All rooms have a beautiful view overlooking the bay of Kissamos. The accommodation is plain but simple. A few pictures on the wall wouldn't go amiss! Very spacious rooms accommodating up to four people. Ideally situated for the Balos Beach lagoon accessible via a 9km dirt track. There is then a 2km walk to the beach. I must admit I... More
