My family and I stayed at Golden Bay Suites in July 2019 for the third time during the past ten years. The hotel is well driven with a friendly staff, and it is nice and clean. The rooms have been through some improvements since our last stay. Swimming pool is a bit smal, but for falilys with small children it works well. The hotel restaurant is ok, with a range of traditional dishes, and works well for a quick lunch meal during the day. It is a fantastic place to sit and enjoy the sunset and a drink. The location of the hotel is the big plus - right at the beach and in a nice and quiet area with several other nice beaches whitin walking distance. Also there are several really good tavernas in the area. We enjoyed our one week stay!
Very stylish, modern clean and comfortable apartment complex, however would benefit from a few improvements. Excellent location, right on the beach, however, shame that there is a 5 Euro per person per day charge to use the sunbeds on the beach. Bumps up the price of the stay. Sunbeds on the beach should be free to residents, otherwise the advantage of a beachfront location is nullified. Cooking facilities in the rooms are limited (two hotplates and a kettle). No oven and no microwave. Took food with us but unable to cook it. Could do with more parasols by the pool, struggled to find shade at times. Friendly staff and very close to bus stop for easy access to Chania.
Our first trip to Crete, had 2 - 3 night stays during our 2 weeks on the island and it was the best place for the 9 of us. Great beach location, friendly staff who felt more like family. Basic menu covered all the bases never had to leave. Sunrise sunset, cocktails, fabulous views and clean rooms all with a view and balcony! Look forward to our return!
We stayed here for two days because ammos hotel was full. Nice location and spaceious room. Cleaning could be better, strang smell in the room and bad insonorisation. No value for money. We pay a lot more in ammos hotel but do iT with pleasure.
After 2 months living out of our backpacks, this was a dream come true. We booked for 5 days, and this is now day 8...we still have no plans to move it's that awesome. Here's why you should come: 1) It's right on the beach. The beach is called Sunset Beach for a reason...the sun slides into the sea every night. You can watch it from your hotel room (assuming you've got a view though we don't), the patio bar, or the sand in front of the hotel. 2) Rooms are big compared to other rooms. We're a family and the kids each have a small single bed that can be a sofa during the day. We have our own separate room. There's a kitchenette with a decent sized mini fridge. No microwave though. You can get supplies at the mini-market in the hotel or 10 minutes walk to the INKA supermarket for cheaper fare. 3) Friendly staff both at the front and at the patio bar. Front staff is happy to help you with anything from tour booking to getting an extra pillow. The patio bar is overlooking the sea and has postcard views of the Med. It's open all day to midnight. Beer and food are a bit expensive and not exactly gourmet but the view and the service make up for it. We love to hang here. Best of all , the wireless is strong enough to make it here (I'm literally typing this from a table there sipping on an ice cold Heineken). Beer selection is great. 3) You are outside of Chania, but the bus stop is steps away from the front so you can go into the city anytime you need an urban fix or to see all the museums and sites. 4) There are many good restaurants within walking distance from here. Many are right on the beach, and I mean RIGHT on the beach. One had waves crashing right up to the foundation. 5) It feels like a resort here, but for a fraction of the price. We're on a budget and travelling long term, so we appreciate being able to stay at such a nice place and still not break the bank. After spending 10 days (and counting) here, we have yet to come across a similar hotel with similar amenities for a reasonable cost. It's the best in the area.…
