We stayed here for 4 nights, choosing this location to avoid the hustle of Chania town. We stayed in the studio with double bed and it suited our needs well. Firstly it was good to received a text from the hotel manager asking about our arrival times, and he was very enthusiastic and charismatic. Great first impression when he had put some bread, cheese and ham in our fridge as well as a bottle of home made Raki. Positives - Hotel itself is nice & clean and the manager is lovely and informative - Quiet location with good parking & access to local destinations. Most beaches were between 5-15mins drive - appreciated the hotels stance on cleaning - every 4 days for the bed linen and every 2 days for the towels. Good for environment. - Hotel room was very good - Supermarkets are pretty close to the hotel - cute grey cat Improvements - The WIFI was not working so good for us, luckily we could use our data roaming, but important to have good WIFI these days - the outdoor terrace overlooking the garden wasn't so inspiring.... FYI - not so many local places to eat in walking distance, not the hotels fault of course, but good to know for people who dont want to drive too much and/or like to drink in the evening! We had to drive for 5-10mins to find somewhere to eat

If ever planning to stay near Chania you might wanna chose this lovely place. First of all.. you need a car. If not.. forget it. On the peninsula north of Chania, Akrotiri, this is a great place. All is said about the owner, Yannis? I dont think so! We booked accidentally for September 17. But we arrived May 17. Call it very bad planning on our side. Reception was empty but we called the owner and he rushed back and we both had a good laugh after finding out my stupid mistake. Luckily Esplanade still had rooms and we were welcomed as if there was no mistake. Family made Raki, cookies, two cold beers..all in our refrigerator made it a warm (unexpected) welcome... And more.. this place is so very clean and freshly decorated. They provide slippers, fresh towels every other day, a clean pool, coffee and tea.. Ive been travelling to dozens of Greek islands over decades, but this is the beat, It has a two star rating only? Crazy! Thank you Yannis dor a wonderful stay, being flexible where we were the ones making mistakes, giving great ideas of where to eat... (Mitsos in 2 km for meat.. the best...) Thanks for a memorable stay. Youre great.

This place is clean & fairly outdated. We stayed here as it has an apartment with 3 bedrooms in it, which is what we required. The staff are friendly, the pool is fine and the location is ok. It is a self catering apartment and the bathrooms have been updated. He is continuing to update gradually.

Staff: the best. The rooms are not very fancy but they are adequate to the price. Very nice matresses. Good swimming pool with sea view and good location 800 meters from the bech. Don´t go to Heraclion airport. There´s one right there in Chania. Really quiet surroundings. Very good quality price.

Beautiful accomodation, great pool and charming owner. This was a lovely place to stay. If it had a taverna in close walking distance it would be 5 stars no question. About a km to the nearest place to eat. Supermarket much closer.
