Yiannis is a fantastic host and goes out of his way we had an amazing holiday thank you and hope to be back. Full self catering facilities in room incl fridge etc. ideal if cooking for yourself and a supermarket nearby. There are only a couple of tavernas close by on the local beach and these can close early. Around... More

I found the Esplanade from Trip Advisor and really want to add my praise to the other reviews to encourage people experience this great place. We were expecting clean and basic, but the Esplanade delivers more than this, especially in the 3 double bed apartment we had. The rooms are spacious and airy each with a balcony and the 3... More

Incredible hospitality, incredible value, incredible views, incredibly clean. These apartments were nothing short of perfect for my girlfriend and me. We stayed for 6 nights and wish we had stayed longer. It is located right beside a stunning beach in Kalathas, and is ten minutes drive from the beautiful Chania town. We spent most of our time moving between the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Esplanade. Yiannis is such a wonderful hotel owner and goes out of his way to make your stay enjoyable. He gave us information on local attractions that was very helpful. The rooms were spotless and very spacious. Mini kitchenettes are available if you want to prepare your own food. We didn't really use this... More

The rooms was awesome. It was very big and clean with all kitchen supplies to cook your own meals. There is a small super market down the road, but other than that there is nothing around there within walking distance (except a beach). I guess it is our fault for not noting the location properly, but it was quite far... More

We stayed at Esplanade for 3 nights, and it was fabulous. For a very reasonable rate, our family of 5 got a huge 3-bedroom, 3-bath (!) apartment, with a large living area and balconies. Spotlessly clean, the air-conditioning and hot water worked all the time, showers that kept the rest of the bathroom dry, etc. The pool was small but... More

Absolutely! We are back home today, and I had to writte my review immediately since it looks even better than I could ever hope. Quiet, clean, beautiful garden, near to the nice beach (but, still, hard without the car), near to Chania, nice aparments, nice and friendly owner. If we ever go back to Crete, we will stay there again... More

I've just arrived back home and I'm looking for finding a flight to come back before the end of the summer in this amazing place. This is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, our apartement was well manteined, quiet, very clean and confortable. The view from the balcony was precious and the pool was a little gem.
