“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

We spent one week there early May and it is certainly one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Perfect with a young child; the rooms are very clean, comfortable, the breakfast is amazing with lovely local produce, the location is fantastic and the staff so friendly and helpful, speaking English, good French and genuinely give their time to make your time there a real holiday and sharing their lovely island with you. We would definitely go back there and highly recommend this place.

We had a brilliant 10-days at Ammos in July this year. Couldn't recommend it more highly. The setting and decoration of the Hotel are brilliant. As a fan of contemporary art and furniture it really appealed. Despite this it is unbelievably family focused (NB: if you are a couple...go outside of school holidays, but you surely know that already?). The food is excellent and not OTT expensive. It works for adults and kids alike. The wine list is Cretan only, but that works for me as I want to taste the local stuff when I travel.

Despite all of the above, the thing that makes Ammos special isn't the setting, the decor, the food and wine...it is the staff. Nikos deserves high praise for his recruitment, because they are to a man/woman the most friendly and helpful people we've come across at a Hotel. Poppy, who manages the restaurant, is a delight. Just be careful of her Father's raki...excellent way to finish a meal, but don't have too many!

Room Tip: Get a sea view room...nothing beats waking to the glassy Med!

My 3rd visit, even better than before. No point repeating all the things that everyone else has said (amazing service, food, location, yadda yadda)...so have left some photos of one of the things I adore most about this amazing hotel....how it looks. Nikos has such an amazing eye and attention to detail, his love for this hotel is evident every time you turn a corner. Which is why I love it too. Thanks everyone for a wonderful fortnight, we miss it like crazy.

Room Tip: Room 37 can be seen from the restaurant - handy for leaving kids sleeping.

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.
