“Nice apartment hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This hotel is located just on the beach, it has nice clean rooms and friendly staff, we stayed there for one week in June.
Good breakfast with all the normal stuff. Try a drink at the beach/pool bar.
I would recommend this hotell to families and couples.

Room Tip: We chose a room that was in the shade in the morning/day very nice in a hot day to be able to sit on...

We were the first guests of the season and got a lovely warm welcome from the reception staff! In fact all the staff at the Santa Helena were extremely helpful during our stay - they are a real asset to the hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable - and well maintained by the cleaners each day. Despite booking a self catering stay, we decided to eat breakfast at the hotel as it was good value and served in a lovely setting overlooking the beach and sea (and Thodorou Island). The pool and grounds of Santa Helena are very inviting (e.g. the hedging is the 'Daphne' shrub which gives off a lovely scent in the evenings), and the hotel itself is well situated to the west of Platanias which is a low-key resort near Chania.

Room Tip: The accomodation on the left hand side of the hotel (as you look towards the sea) get the most sunli...

Nice hotel for people who travel with children.
Peaceful, quiet atmosphere, though the hotel wasn't full yet.
Great pool, practically on the beach. Playground for kids.
The hotel personnel is helpful and kind (at least in the spring time).
