Excellent hotel, especially the refurbished apartments. Great location. Beautiful view. Beach and pool. Ideal for kids. Spotlessly clean. But, especially, GREAT STAFF! Friendly, helpful, professional. They should be congratulated.

Clean rooms which get cleaned every day (with fresh towels and sheets every day too) beautiful views of the sea from the sea facing rooms. Pool and private beach so no worry of it being crammed and busy. The staff were all so lovely and happy to help with all enquiries/book is taxis etc The buffet-style food there was of... More

Everything about this place is nice, especially the A/C. The pool is open from 9-9 and has a great view of the sea. The breakfast and dinner buffets are great, but the morning selection is a little limited. The rooms are nice and the parking is very convenient. I would definitely stay here again. It's about 30 minutes from Chania... More

I want to start off by saying this was me and my wife's first visit to Greece and it was a great experience. It was me and my wife's 1 year anniversary so I wanted to make it special so I requested one red rose, a small cake and a card and was not dissapointed. Not only did they get... More

Nice view with reasonable price. A very nice and helpful french staff works there. Very clean with well equipped kitchen. A small private beach (not a sand beach, so not very suitable for young kid) just in front of hotel with 5 parasols. It was fine as we were in low season, very easy to grap one available. We didn't... More

Initially we booked one night, but right after arriving we realized that this place is just what we needed after Athens. It is amazingly quiet here. The view, spectacular. We booked another night right away and were lucky enough to get a Junior Suite on the top floor looking out towards the road to Balos Beach. The first room was... More

We arrived at Balos Beach Hotel late afternoon. We were on Crete for 11 nights and booked to stay here for the one night as our main hotel for the holiday was over in Rethymnon. We hired a car for a few days and booked this hotel so that we could visit Balos Beach and Elafonissi over two days. On... More

Great road trip to the parking lot atop Balos. The road, while not in good shape, added a great sense of adventure to the destination. Hiking from the parking lot (with all of the cool goats) was easy with the reward of the view of the beach below. It does take awhile to drive the path and I wouldn't drive... More

Pictures don't do justice of this place. Calm water, peaceful. We went early June so we miss rush of tourists but hotel was still busy. We didn't get a chance but we were recommended hiking to Balos beach which is around 11km each way. Apparently it is one of the best beaches in Greece. Other ways are by car or... More

Me and my boyfriend have been there for our summer holidays. We stayed in the hotel for a week, and it was great! Although it was September, prices were definitely not high season ones. We had a double room, which was really large and quiet. We also had air conditioning and a TV. The view from our outside balcony was... More
