Spacious tasteful & clean room with nice bathroom and large balcony. Comfortable loungers, nice pool. Nice pool bar menu and good service.... ... however.... Only the main (buffet) restaurant was open for the duration of our stay which was annoying given that it was advertised as having 3 restaurants on it's website. Seems it was not finished or was just... More

If you are after a luxury and relaxing holiday, this is the place you should be looking at. Treat yourself and book the Panoramic Suite. The view from the roof-top private swimming pool/terrace is just stunning.

I chose Asterion Hotel on the base of quiet location away from touristy area of Platanias and close proximity to Chania. I loved a warm welcome I received from staff in the reception upon my arrival on 26th of June. This staff member was particularly helpful with tips about where to go in Chania and beaches but I sadly do... More

We are a family of 4 - a pre teen, a 7 year old and their two well-travelled handlers - and we stayed at the end of August/ Sept this year. If you want a relaxing family holiday with easy access to a pool and a quiet sandy beach, this is a real contender. My daughter made friends easily. My... More

I stayed at Asterion Hotel 2 weeks in the end of August/beginning of September. The hotel is located just near the beach. You can take a swim in a beautiful, clean and warm sea or choose to go to the hotel swimming pool. The nearest city - Maleme - is located about 20 minutes on foot from the hotel. Chania... More

The hotel is located in a quiet place with huge beach. If you are looking for a party time, this is not the place. If you however want to relax, read your favorite book and sleep well, Asterion would be a good choice. We spent 10 days there and liked it very much. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Nice...

Located in a quiet area. This can be seen also on the beach, you have the sea and the beautiful beach almost always on its own. We all found it great pleasure. We looked at the hotels and beaches in the near Platanias, Agia Marina Chania and there you lie on the beaches usually close together. In the hotel there... More

We stayed at the Asterion for a week mid-June 2014 and loved our stay. Our room was very spacious, clean and well-presented. There was a super-king sized bed, kitchenette and balcony over-looking the garden and sea. Only minor issues were that you had to pay 2 euros a day for the safe and the hair drier was very slow (not... More
