A oasis of peace in the midst of bustling platanias. We booked direct (no package) for super high season and were pleasantly surprised to find a clean, comfortable and spacious family apartment right by the private beach and great and quite pool. The mostly Romanian staff is very helpful and friendly and the establishment is run but the PhD qualified... More

We surely will recommend this small and "open" hotel, specially for families. It is easy to follow the children with only 10 meters between the nice pool and the beach. The sea breeze makes the climate comfortable, even during hot days. The hotel is very clean and the english speking staff is great, making you feel very comfortable. The appartments... More

I absolutely loved the Blue Dome! Each room has a deck that overlooks the ocean and the rooms are indeed little apartments. There is a small kitchenette in the rooms so you could cook meals and keep your own drinks in the fridge if you wish. The rooms were very clean and the staff is extremely friendly. The restaurant attached... More

Our 2 room apartment in Blue Dome was a wonderful experience! What a perfect location right at the pool, beach and sea, no disturbing road in front of you. We were there in low season (May 5-16), so it was very quiet. However, only 100 meters away you find many shops, restaurants and the busstop to Chania (in May every... More

A very good hotel with a very kind staff. Perfect to relax and all day you can hear the relaxing sound of cicadas. The hotel has a beautiful view to the beach and mountains. The airport broke the wheels of my suitcase and one of the hotel staff fixed it for me and was happy to do it.

From the first moments with the exceptionally pleasant and knowledgable owner Dr. Danciou to the first dip in the blue waters in front of the apartment we experienced a superb experience of warm hospitality. I loved the sea view and that quality of the room furnishings , especially the bed and its super mattress. I definitely would love to come... More

Wonderful location on the beach, no street to cross. Nice to relax at the poolarea and take a swim in the swimming-pool looking at the see and listen to the waves and then take several steps and you are on the beach. This is the reason I choosed this hotel. The apartments are quite nice with umbrellas on the balconies,... More
