“Stunning place, absolute relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We have been enjoying our holidays in this hotel for over 15 years now and we wouldn't think of going anywhere else. It is an excellent place for relaxation around the wonderful swimming pool with a stunning view over the Cretan sea. Relaxing on the private decks over the rocks, while watching at the sunset, under the sounds of cool music, is a magical experience we carry with us for the long winter nights.... Fully renovated two years ago, the hotel offers excellent comfort and all modern facilities. The traditional Cretan breakfast, featuring fresh orange jus and traditional "dacos", among others, is a must! The owner, Giorgis and the staff are all very friendly and helpful, with all sorts of information, to make our holidays the perfect relaxing experience.
We return every year every year with our three kids and we all absolutely love this place!

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel for over 2 months due to my husbands business travel in Crete, and have stayed in several of the rooms. Having been here so long we've got to know the hotel and staff very well. We also visited numerous other hotels/apartments in the area. I can say without a doubt - this is the best hotel/ apartment you will find by far.
The hotel is 10-15 min drive from the airport and around 10 mins to Chania. The staff is really nice and helpful, everyone is really friendly.
The hotel has a pretty big pool with lots of sun beds and private sea access.
The rooms are very nice and clean, have a full kitchen. Many rooms have great views of the sea and a lovely sunset from the pool area.
I will definitely recommend this place to friends.

Room Tip: Pick a sea facing room

If you go to Crete ,The Giorgi's Blue Apartments is the perfect place to stay! Me and my husband went there for our pre-honeymoon and we had an unforgettable time.
The hotel is located in a beautiful and quiet place, 10 min drive from Chania (the most beautiful city of Crete). It has a private beach, from where you can see amazing sunsets (the hotel have made a great job preserving the natural beauty of the place), giant swimming pool, and bar.
Very experienced and friendly stuff of the hotel makes you feel part of the family. We had great time gathering together with other guests of the hotel and watching the World Cup.
And we want to say the special thanks for those great breakfast that we got. It was delicious.
Thank you for making our stay on Crete perfect!

Stayed at Giorgi's Blue Apartments as a couple in June if you want a totally relaxing holiday this is the place to go. Beautiful setting very pretty always plenty of sunbeds available the apartments were excellent we had apartment 13 which was very spacious and has great views from the little balcony. This place is close to Chania about a 15 min drive so if you want to see some of the area a car is a must but if you just want to relax then this is definitely the place to be, we used the bus and took taxi's if we wanted to go into Chania in the evening for a change of scenery. The staff here are amazing and really friendly and helpful thank you especially to Neile & Maria. If I wanted a totally chill out week I would definitely return to this place.

Friendly and extremely helpful staff! The location was wonderful, close to Chania and also all the beaches on Akrotiri. Georgi and Maria were so hospitable, even brewing a cup of tea for our daughter at midnight when she didn't feel well. The apartments were spotless and the view was perfect all day long! The private cove with umbrellas and chairs was stunning! We would definitely go back!!!

Room Tip: pool side is also a water and morning sun view

Stayed 5 nights at Giorgi's last month and could not speak more highly of the resort food or service Each day started with a sumptuous breakfast and ended watching idyllic sunsets from our balcony. George was a mine of information from tiki tour drives around the island to organising a local doctor when my wife Michele became ill. This resort thoroughly deserves it's outstanding reputation and excellent reviews. Would stay there again without hesitation if the opportunity ever arose.

I think everything has been said, really - I totally agree with the positive reviews that precede this one. The rooms, housekeeping, pool, breakfast, bar area and staff are all excellent, and location was within walking distance to two supermarkets and the lovely Kalathas beach. The highlight has to be the direct access to the beautiful Mediterranean cove and the semi-private decks on the way down.

So I will focus on location, as this is where we disagree with some other reviews. Many have said a car is needed. This may be the case if you want to tour the area or have children who need a bit more action that couples do. However, we didn't have a car (or children!), and we certainly didn't miss out. It was easy to get a taxi into Chania for 12 Euros each way - which we did three times during our 10-day stay - but most evenings we took the 15 minute walk into Kalathas for dinner. One taverna was right on the beach with an excellent, authentic Greek menu - fairly ordinary in terms of atmosphere but with friendly, efficient service and excellent value at around 30 Euros for 2 (including a litre of the excellent local wine). The second is just before you get to the beach, raised from the road, with the unpromising title of "Fish and Chops and Chips". At first sight the menu seemed a bit limited but once we knew the system we ignored it - the staff bring an excellent choice of fresh fish to the table for you to choose - including some local wild species, which makes a change from the usual farmed bass/bream you tend to get in Greece. They also bring a selection of meze/salads to select from - delicious! Total price was excellent value - even with the relatively expensive fish - at around 45 Euro for 2 - again including wine. It is also a little more atmospheric, with a nice view over the beach. There is, in addition, a hotel restaurant right opposite to this; we didn't try it, but it looked nice. For those prepared for the fairly straightforward walk there is plenty to do locally for those, like us, who don't want to be burdened with a car while on holiday and just want to soak up the local environment.
