Pros: Good location, laidback, very nice view, lots of activities for kids, nice pool and bar, has everything closeby. Nice rooms if you get the best ones. Cons: A bit slow service, rubbish Wifi, little variety in breakfast. Stayed 1 week, and was satisfied overall. It's located at the end of the Platanias main area, in a quiet green lung.... More

It may not be fancy, but we found this to be a good hotel in a quiet location. Might seem like you're out in the sticks, but I rather enjoyed it. And it's not all that far from the airport :D We enjoyed our stay, and would easily recommend this to others.

Location is pretty good. The entire town/ area is built for tourists. Hotel would be great for older couples or families with small children. For younger couples such as us, i would recommend anything else. The rooms were very disappointing. We were shown to our first room and asked right away for a for an upgrade. (the room smelt like...

I have choosen this hotel becouse of location. I liked visited west part of Creta and this place is ideal, moreover is close to airport in Chania. Hotel is a little bit on the subarbia of Platanias in quiet neighbourhood. Another advantage is location of bus stop wich is only 100m from hotel. That what I liked very much was... More

The hotel sits right next to the beach and just 10-15 minutes walking from the town center. Nice, clean rooms, all close to pools and the beach. The staff is nice and helpful and the food is generally good. We had the all inclusive program and feared we'd be eating the same for every meal, but that was not the... More

We have been to Crete a few times before, but this was the first time with our 10 month-old daughter. When we booked our trip (charter), we researched the hotels available and decided that Geraniotis had the best options for us. I will not discuss the charter-trip bit here as this is something for another day. I will focus on... More

I have so many mixed feeling about this place I am not quite sure where to start. When we first arrived at the hotel we asked for a different room. We had paid for an apartment but we were traveling with family who had paid for rooms, their rooms were across the property from ours. It also took 10 minutes... More
