“Excellent boutique hôtel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We had a wonderful relaxing week at the Ammos Hotel in October. The owner Nikos and his team were brilliant. Couldn't have given better customer service, from the initial email enquiry to the end of our trip, we were made so welcome. The room was excellent, great having a mini kitchen for essentials, although we ate many times in the restaurant. The food was fantastic, true authentic Cretan dishes, always served to us with a smile. We didn't bother with a hire car, jumping onto a bus into Chania town was easy. We had some great recommendations of places to eat in the town from the reception staff. Tamam, a restaurant in a converted Turkish spa is well worth a visit. great value. We walked the Samaria Gorge which was amazing! A long day but well worth it. The guests In the hotel were very nice, lots of little ones to brighten the place up! All in all a fantastic place, we would highly recommend it and would love to return. Thanks Nikos and your team.

Room Tip: Sea view is worth the extra

Just had 10 days island hopping and our stay here with two children was by far the best. We arrived with a sick child and the wonderful hotel staff had a doctor to our room in no time. Best value we found, best setting, kind and helpful staff and delicious breakfast! All agreed we would love to come back.

Room Tip: Our two rooms faced the sea. Gorgeous.

I found the Ammos Hotel the perfect place for a holiday with my parents and my active toddler. Not only did we receive a very warm welcome at 7am but also an early check in (great for my son's nap). Delicious breakfast lunch and dinner. Stylish decor and wonderful service - the staff just can't do enough for you. Even hot milk 'babycinos' delivered to our beach chairs for my son to enjoy while we had our coffees. The beach is one of the cleanest if not the cleanest free beach I have seen in Greece with many beach toys provided by the hotel. My parents are keen ocean swimmers and enjoyed the swimming here - Dad even swam around a nearby tiny island. Nikos is there for you from the first email till you sadly say goodbye. As we live in Athens I really hope we can return again and again. A beautiful hotel to watch my son explore and enjoy his surroundings without me having to say 'no don't touch' as I seem to on other holidays..

Where to start!? This hotel is more than that and is absolutely unique.
To be succinct:
1. Perfect for any kind of guest: couple, single, family...
2. Fabulous location and beach for swimming, walking, lounging.
3. Staff and their client-focussed service is EXCEPTIONAL- I have traveled the world, all star levels and this place is beyond compare when helping you feel welcome, cared for and comfortable.
4. Food: DELICIOUS. The breakfast, especially, is different/varied and yummy, yummy, yummy.
5. Spa: onsite for massages and if you need more, there's another spa recommended up the street - 3 min walk.
6. 100 metres away from shopping for staples and other...
7. The owner, and manager, Nikos is a gem and had incredible/thorough suggestions for anything we needed, including tour guides, restaurant ideas, excursions, etc.
8. The design reflects a vision of simply stated luxury without an ounce of pretension, eclectic style and charm, clean lines and freshness.
8. Value.

WE WILL RETURN!

Just excellent, we spent one week with two children. Amazing food, staff and services, highly recommended. The staff was not just very nice to us, but also very nice with the children. Decent size and great location to the beach.

We stayed at Ammos Hotel for a week in June 2013. I can´t praise it enough, the place is perfect it´s got it all! Lovely Setting, beach on the doorstep, 15 minutes from lovely Chania town, beautiful furnished rooms, amazing Food, top Service, extremely helpful staff! We were there with our 2 small children and the Hotel makes sure everyone is comfortable speciallywith Kids going a bit bonkers! The Hotel is faboulous, very chic and friendly but with a very relaxed atmosphere. The pool is also great, they´ve got all the toys and also a playroom with a childminder ! We can´t wait to go back, we loved the place , thanks Nikos and everyone else for a perfect Holiday!

We had 5 nights here and loved it - the best beach hotel we found in Crete. It is beautiful - stylish and spotless. The staff are absolutely amazing - without exception so friendly and helpful. Niko was extremely helpful, right from the first email - and throughout our stay, with suggestions and perfect, easy to follow directions. The restaurant was excellent and we found ourselves going back for every meal. The beach is lovely and there were plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ammos Hotel.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms on the upper floor are the best.
