Wonderfully attractive hotel, with charm and warmth exuding from Elenie, the owner, who meets everyone's needs. Spacious rooms, well-situated to Chania, beautiful views of the Venetian harbor, glass balcony with views of the city, lovely full breakfast, attractive vegetation surrounding a huge outdoor pool, an old-fashioned billiards table, make this hotel the perfect place to stay in Chania.

Lovely hotel just 10 minutes drive from Chania airport. Were given a large family rooms with nice view over the bay. Very friendly owners, nice breakfast. Enjoyed a quick swim in the pool and play on the playground. Would definitely recommend for short stay if arrive to Crete at Chania airport.

NOT impressed with this hotel. Staff was friendly until it was time to check out. Rooms were marginal and very dated. Amenities were sub par, so bring all your own soaps and what not. Location is about a 15-20 walk to anything other than the small truck stop-like shop next door. Breakfast was rough and even though the sign said... More

Wonderful friendly hosts in a lovely hotel. A really magical week at Monte Vardia. The best view in Chania combined with a perfect location for getting around the Akrotiri peninsula which is truly stunning. Cannot say Anything slightly detrimental about this place. Fantastic advice given on where to go and how to get there. Great breakfast. Everything just lovely.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Monte Vardia for a week. The staff are so friendly and always willing to help. For example, every day they booked taxis for us wherever we wanted to go, as well as giving advice on places to visit. The hotel and pool is always clean and tidy, the breakfast buffet (including hot and cold... More

Every morning we were offered a cooked breakfast, or yoghurt, on top of the fresh and delicious buffet that is available - perfect when you have to feed several hungry men! The pool is cleaned daily, as are the rooms and the whole hotel, so no complaints on cleanliness. Helen makes my family and I feel so welcome when we... More

We've just returned from our third, or was it the fourth visit to the Monte Vardia. Not much had changed, the hotel and hosts Helen and Christina were still as lovely as ever! We had a recently renovated room (won't give the number as its now mine) which was great, comfy new bed etc. Small but valid improvement was the... More

This was one of the best hotels i stayed at because of the lovely family that runs the place! They were able to answer all my questions and gave such relevant information about the island and were so willing to accommodate and help us in any way. Even packed us a lunch for our trip to samarian gorge! Has a... More

I am so happy I chose to spend 4 nights of my holiday at this hotel and in reality, had my booking of the Samaria in Chania itself been cancellable, I would have been happy to spend the whole week at Monte Vardia. This in itself is proof of how wonderful MV is, as the Samaria is a stunning hotel.... More

Came back from a weeks holiday in Crete a week ago now.Stayed in Monte Vardia hotel and the feeling of floating in that gorgeous warm pool is still with me! The location is excellent. My husband wanted to stay in Chania but I wanted a pool and this little hotel turned out to be the perfect compromise! Took 15mins max... More
