“A Magical Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Yes, this place is as wonderful as all the reviews say! We spent 5 nights here in the garden suite, which was perfect for myself, my wife, and our 2 year old. When we arrived to find the bedding in our son's crib turned down with a chocolate mint on the pillow, I knew we were in for a special stay. The location is ideal as the pool is situated quite close to a beautiful beach with always available lounge chairs. The design of the hotel truly stands out as colours abound in the lobby and in the room. Breakfast was wonderful each morning, as we started each day with fresh squeezed juice from Chania's fantastic oranges. We also enjoyed room service for lunch and took the opportunity to sample from their daily menu of specials. What really makes this hotel stand out even more are the staff. What an incredible group of people. The front desk personnel are incredibly helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Service in the restaurant, the cleaning service, the care at the little gym for our 2 year old son...everyone was always so attentive and friendly.
Nikos, the owner, was fantastic throughout our stay, beginning with our email exchange when he was immensely helpful and attentive when planning our trip. He also offered us excellent restaurant advice during our stay and his suggestions were perfect and helped us find many different wonderful dining experiences in Chania. There are so many little touches and features in this hotel that stand out and make it unique. Thanks to everyone at the hotel for a wonderful stay!

The most wonderful summer holiday so far! Small hotel with an absolutely perfect design. Every single thing works here. The rooms are nice, not too big, but you get everything you need. Breakfast and dinner are served mostly outside, but you always have the feeling of being "at home" and protected from the sun. Beach is ideal for children - sandy, protected from big waves, clean. Comfortable sun beds and umbrellas free of charge (beach towels as well). The most delicious breakfast: fresh salads, olives, cheese, cherries, water mellon, pears and other fruits, a yoghurt to die for, cretan honey, outstanding cakes, homemade ice tea etc... All super fresh, nicely presented and full of fantasy. Dinner is a la carte: reasonable prices (40 - 60 Eur for 2 adults and 2 children including drinks), day specialities, all fresh, genuine and tasty.
But the best thing about this hotel is the service. You always have a feeling that you are welcome, that you are at home and that you don't have to worry about anything. There is always somebody to help you and every single member of the hotel staff makes an impression that he or she loves his/her work. I travel a lot for my work but I have never experienced such a natural hospitality and care. From restaurant service to trip ideas. It is difficult to describe it, you have to experience it.
Many thanks to Nikos and his staff. If you are looking for a wonderful holiday, go to AMMOS. You will be overwhelmed, how a seaside hotel can be run!!!

We spent a lovely week at the hotel. The rooms are lovely, the staff are perfect and the location / beach is the best I have encountered. If you have children the of course he rooms next to the pool may be perfect. If you want a quieter stay then stay away from those. Whatever you choose you will not be disappointed. Thank you Nicos you gave us a week to remember.

It was the first time I came to a Holiday with such high expectations and, in fact, the stay was even better than I expected.

What I liked most is that the hotel is small, friendly and beautiful and you feel at home the moment you arrive there.

The staff is great and friendly. The breakfast is amazing, and the owner, Nikos, is so nice and helpful (and has a very good taste in chairs :-) ). Actually, I have nothing new to add to the 400 previous excellent reviews that I have read in trip advisor. The hotel is just GREAT!

It was our first holiday with our 1 year old baby, and it was just perfect. Everything you need for your baby is already thought about: food, toys, bath and even a monitor so you can hear your baby while sitting in the balcony.

I'll just say that this is the kind of place that you feel lucky that you have found, and I will definitely return to that place.

The Ammos hotel is in a close tie for my favourite place that we stayed in Greece. We had two seaview rooms for our family of five. The location is perfect with the beach right there and an easy drive or cab ride into Chania. The food was fresh and interesting and the service was lovely.

If children bother you then this is maybe not the place for you but even though we were travelling with teens, the hotel took such good care of everyone that the young children around us were happy and pleasant to be around.

It would have been nice if dish washing supplies were included as we took advantage of the little kitchenette however we discovered that if we rinsed our dishes and left them housekeeping did the washing up which was nice too.

Comfortable beds, good food, great service, stunning location. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms were very nice and did actually have a view of the sea. I was glad we were on the up...

What makes Ammos different from any other hotel I have stayed is the personal and warm service that just feels so friendly. The breakfast is suberb and the location on the beach is great. For any small boys and girls the turtle Bob is a great friend and my son spent most of his idle time between pool and meals with the little turtle. Sweet.

I booked the hotel for 9 members of my family with ages ranging from 5 to 78 with such varying interests and personalities that I was certain someone would have at least one complaint....well there were none! in fact there was only praise from everyone.
Everything has been said in the other reviews:
1. Great service by Nikos and his dedicated, friendly staff
2. Spottless rooms
3. The breakfast was so good, my husband and I (who rented a house 45 minutes drive away) came all the way to have breakfast three times during our 11 day stay in Chania.
4. Dinner was so good that we would rate it as one of the top 10 restaurants to go to in Chania
5. The beach was clean, warm, sandy and shallow enough for kids
6. Water sports were not too far away
7. For those of you who want to go into town, it is a 5 minutes drive
In summary, perfect!

Room Tip: If you have young children I recommend the rooms close to the pool. If you want more quiet ask for t...
