The whole place was a great experience. I had a balcony room with a view over the Mediterranean, and the staff were so friendly! They were very helpful, and the owners helped me book a tour to Samaria Gorge when I wasn't able to book anywhere else. The beach is about 3 minutes away by foot or 30 seconds by car. There are also hills nearby across from the Kalathas beach that have some pretty awesome rock face, like 30 ft highish, and those were fun to climb! Especially at sunrise. Breakfast is included in the price of the hotel, and it was eggs, yogurt, bread, and orange juice. The area is really great, only about 20 mins from Chania, about 5 mins from Kounoupidiana. The nearest restaurant is about 5 mins by car, Taverna Irene, just turn left on the street and you'll get there. =) Great food! Also, the owners' grandson, Nikolas, lives there on holidays, and OH MY GOODNESS! He is sooo sweet and sooo cute, six years old, acts like he owns the place, loves playing, super adventurous, loves jokes, barely speaks English but will make ppl of all languages laugh haha. He was my fave part of the hotel for sure!! A definite must if you are in the area. It's nice not to be in a city. Also, they had bungalows and houses there too that you could rent out that were fully equipped with stove, refrigerator, etc. That would be great for couples or family, as some of them are two bedroom. The whole thing is very charming and authentically Greek (not Western at all, but very comfortable).
