We got a lovely breakfast and the apartment was very nice and clean. Doing a round-trip on Kreta this was the perfect start for our tour with Chania being our airport... More

Our party of three stayed a night at this hotel after arriving in Chania and quite liked it. The rooms were fresh and clean with lovely decor and the host that met us was very helpful and polite. The taps in the bathroom was a bit fiddly - we could only get very hot or very cold water - but... More

Our stay at the Water-Lily couldn't have been more enjoyable! We were greeted with the warmest hospitality by Nina, Angela, and Giorgos. Our 1 bedroom suite was lovingly and beautifully decorated with a spacious balcony. The lovely sandy Kalathas beach is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Nina always offered excellent advice about what to see, eat, and... More

We've been here for 5 nights during our trip to Crete, and Waterlily is perfect to go around west ans south west Crete. The apartment we had was comfortable, the bathroom seemed to be a little bit old but all the rest was fine. The position of the hotel is perfect, really near the beaches of Kalathas and Stavros and... More

We have just returned from a short stay at the Waterlilly Hotel and cannot praise our experience enough. The hotel was refurbished last year and is most attractive and very well appointed. Nina who is the owner, along with her sister, could not have been more helpful, she made us very welcome and comfortable and was very informative about the... More
