It is a beautiful, small (45 rooms), cozy, very clean, and inexpensive resort with a large swimming pool. Long-term cooperating employees are like a family. Everyone is respectful and full of willingness to all visitors. The food (choice of 8 different plates) was very good, we liked everything. Gentlemen taking care of the dining room will not keep you waiting for the beer or soda you are waiting for, and the used plates on your table will not crowd your table for long. The cleaning ladies also do a fantastic job and I can honestly say that the cleaning services of some of the five-star resorts that my family has visited in the past could learn from them. The sea in this part of Crete was not very friendly and I can add that the whole northern part of Crete is often washed by big waves and stronger winds. On the other hand, the southern part is the complete opposite with the surface almost like a mirror. The east and west shores are also much quieter. On the main street about a 6-7 min walk, there is a small Diligars market (mainly for groceries) or you can go a kilometer further in Kolymbary is at the crossroads of a larger Inka Supermarket with more choice and better prices. Kolymbara has a large number of restaurants and bars. We highly recommend Amfithea Roof Garden Café Bar Restaurant which is located at the foot of the mountains and offers a nice view of the surroundings. We recommend renting a car and visiting Elafonissi beach in the southwest and the Paleochora and Sougia communities in the south. Lake Kourna about 40km east of Chania is also worth it.…
Quiet location. There were not many tourists in the village and you can also see the local culture and life. The people were friendly and the service was mostly good. The hotel staff was friendly and always ready to help. The breakfast was varied and good. The room, hotel and pool area were clean. Within walking distance you can find several good restaurants. The cats at the hotel were funny and well groomed.
It was great hotel. Beautiful and peaceful place. It was nice swimmingpool, great staff and delicious food. It was easy to take a bus and visit Platanias and Chania too. We love those cat’s too 😻. We thank You all for hospitality.
We loved everything about this pretty little hotel. The buffet was excellent with lots of Cretan dishes, many of which were cooked in-house. The pool is very large and spotlessly clean, it was an absolute joy to swim in. Yes, the hotel is in a quiet position, but only a 15 minute walk from the village of Kolymbari, where there are some shops and a number of sea-facing tavernas. We booked the hotel on a B & B basis, but chose to eat in the lovely restaurant 6 nights out of the 8 that we were there, as we enjoyed it so. All the staff at Mrs Chryssana's were so helpful and welcoming, but special thanks go to Nicolas who went out of his way to look after not just us, but all the guests - he also makes fabulous Margaritas!
We spent a week at this resort and it was soooo relaxing. The rooms are lovely, although the chairs on the balcony could do with changing to something a bit more comfortable. I like to spend time sitting on the balcony reading if not at the pool but the chairs weren't very comfortable to sit on for long. The cleanliness of the hotel was excellent. The staff were very helpful and friendly. There was a good choice of quality food although that could have been a bit hotter. All in all this is a place to go if you want quite and relaxation. If you are looking for lively then this is not for you. Fantastic holiday.
