What a brilliant place to come and stay! Superbly clean and extremely friendly and accommodating staff. My husband was really rather poorly a couple of days and Helen was so caring and supportive- her and her mom even made him a special rice broth to help his stomach! I can't praise highly enough. We will definitely be back!

We chose the this hotel from the Trip Advisor reviews and we wanted a hotel with a pool as most in the centre of Chania do not have one. We were not disappointed! This is a family run traditional Greek hotel a few miles from the centre of town. You may want to hire a car to get about but... More

We had a fabulous week in Monte Vardia in June. We stayed in a family room with splendid views over Chania and the sea. Clean, comfortable rooms with excellent air con and cleaning service. No charge for WIFI which was available throughout the hotel. We had the pool to ourselves on many occasions during the week and enjoyed lovely freshly... More

I stayed with three friends in June 2013 and reviewed this hotel as wonderful. I visited with two new friends this year and they were as impressed as me. Again Eleni and her family were so kind and attentive. I consider Eleni to be a friend now and am almost hesitant to tell everyone how super this place is in... More

This is a small family owned hotel and you can feel the difference. The hotel may not be brand new but it is immaculately clean well maintained and extremely friendly. Breakfast is well presented and fresh. The pool area is relaxed and peaceful, while I write this review myself and my family are sharing the pool with only 4 other... More

We based out of Monte Vardia on our stay on Crete! Eleni and her family were very welcoming and helpful! The rooms were clean and roomy! The pool was clean and refreshing. Breakfast excellent, especially fresh yogurt with honey! We definitely will make this a regular stay!

I used this Hotel as a 1 night stopover before going to a Villa the family had booked for a week. I was happy with both the bedroom, facilities and breakfast What stood out for me was the way Eleni looked after me upon arrival, helped with directions to meet my Family, offered me a snack as I looked tired...

Stayed here for 2 nights while on shore leave in crete. Eleni and everyone else is super kind and personable. The whole hotel is spotless. Amazing views of the surrounding area. 10 euro cab ride from downtown Chania, so super close to the the sights and sounds but far enough away if you want peace and quiet. Definitely coming back...

Wonderful, warm experience. Eleni and family made us feel right at home. Breakfasts were excellent. Location is a real plus - away from the crowded city but only minutes away by car. The airport is also just ten minutes away. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was so helpful and caring. Rarely have we had a member of... More

One night stand! Fabulous owner, gorgeous pool and breathtaking views! This was booked site unseen, read several reviews through hotels.com and decided to give it a try, excellent choice, lovely little place. It's family owned and operated and everyone pitches in.
