Stayed at the Rania beach for 10 nights in June and was lovely and relaxing. The hotel is right on the beach and they have their own restaurant The Olive Tree that is open all day and is great. When we arrived we were greeted by Stella who runs the family business and is a credit to the hotel and... More

Just returned from a lovely holiday in Crete. Spent the first 3 nights at the Rania Hotel and loved it. Right next to the beach and all the local bars and restaurants. The Olive Tree is the hotel's restaurant and is definitely worth visiting.

Rania is very nice family hotel run by wonderful Stela and her mother. Both are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are super clean and big enough with daily cleaning, hair dryer, safe deposit box and airconditioning as a bonus. When the wind is strong, you can hide by the pool. There are free sunbeds and Stela will definitely offer... More

Booked through Booking.com. No previous experience here, but an absolute +++ picking a frontal seaside appartment proved to be great. The Olive Tree open air restaurant just with feets nearly in the sea is a modern approach to Greek cuisine; congrats.

Very nice hotel with recently renovated apartments in one of the buildings. Good sized pool and facilities close by. Beach just a few steps away but not at all children friendly.

Located just off the beach with convenient walking distance to both Platanias and Agia Marina. Rooms are clean and not too small (ours anyway). The staff is helpful and the Olive Tree restaurant located on the premises serves solid greek cuisine (don't miss the Cretan dakos!). Air conditioning in the rooms at no charge is a nice bonus. As often... More

Very nice and clean hotel. The location is great, and it is close to everything. Shops, restaurants, beach, bus-stop. The staff was friendly and helpfull. We had a two-room apartment, and it was ok. The only negative with it was that it had been smoked in, and smelled of old sigarettesmoke. The pool was fine, with a children-section. When I... More

We stayed on Rania Hotel for two weeks this September and we had a marvelous time there. Location: Rania Hotel is located on the beach in the lively resort of Platanias, 300 meters from the center of the village and 9 km west of the city of Chania. It’s build really on the beach, so you don’t even have to... More
