During check-in we were welcomed very friendly. We received a room upgrade and had one of the best rooms with a stunning view on the beach. Room and bathroom were very big, modern and clean. Breakfast was very good and diverse with a big selection that changed every day. We could borrow a sun umbrella at the reception when going to other beaches. But the hotels beach was also nice with free sun beds and umbrellas.

Didn’t stay in the hotel as we have somewhere to stay. But the outside bar next to the beach is open and everyone from the hotel is so nice, very welcoming. Lovely people and excellent service. Certainly will stay there soon, hotel looks very new with really nice pool outside. There is an outside and an inside restaurant which both look really nice. Great place to go

We spent one month in this modern hotel by the beach in August 2020, and I have to say that we felt at home from the very first day. The owners Georgos and Izabela were excellent hosts, always ready to fulfill our needs. And what to say about the staff, Caterina the cook, and Manolis, Georgos and Maria the waiters. They all were excellent workers that made our stay unforgettable. The room was fine, superior study with incredible sea sights. Internet was ok, probably not as good as we would have liked, but I know they did their best to improve it. The carte didn't have great variety, but the dishes they offered were really good. Caterina is an excellent chef. The kitchennette is acceptable. Not fully equiped but I have to say that we got all the lacking items that we asked for. It's located inside the last village on the coast road moving west, but in a quiet area, far away from the noisy areas, just by the beach, so that you can hear the waves splashing on the shore while you have a drink sitting at the balcony at night. I loved that. Platanias is at 30 minutes drive, with a lot of restaurants if you don't have enough with all the ones in Kissamos, and the city of Chania one hour drive with an old beatiful port to visit. Several beaches around, counted among the most beautiful beaches of Crete, as Balos, Falasarna, Elafonissi, Stavros and Seitan Limania, to number some. We will come back to Nautilus Bay, as soon as we have a chance.

We had a great time spending 2 weeks at the Nautilus Bay. All the staff are so helpful and kind and the place is kept spotlessly clean, Covid seemed a distant nightmare. Manolis and Maria on the bar are always cheerful and can't do enough for you, Katerina the cook waited up for us when we arrived on a very late flight and makes great cakes and pizza. The cleaning staff (sorry didn't get to know your names) kept us safe and made us laugh with the displays left in our rooms. Isabella and Giorgos run a tight ship, and made us feel so welcome and are a fount of information about places to visit. Great location on the clean and unspoiled sandy beach, its 10 minutes easy walk to the town and restaurants and car rental just up the road. The hotel within 20 minutes driving distance of Falasarna beach if there is a strong North wind, its much more sheltered - the north end blue and orange beach and ruins are perfect. Kissamos museum, Paleochora (great beaches), Chania and Polyrinnia are perfect for interesting visits. Thank you and we wish you all the best for next year, we hope to be back.

All in we had a good time at this hotel. I can not emphasize enough how nice the staff was, especially the reception lady! We stayed 12 nights, on 5 we had no internet in the room due to some wifi problems. The breakfast choices are not great if you are vegetarian (none if your are vegan) - but in this case there are many restaurants close by. The rooms could use some renovation, but they are generally fine (and quite large). There is a reasonably equipped kitchen in the room. At night there is some noise from the street across as there are many loud motorcycles in the area. Lastly, the pillows were a bit too large and hard, but I guess we could've asked for different ones.
