Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Kiani Beach Resort is often celebrated for its friendly staff and pristine cleanliness, boasting spotless rooms and well-kept beaches. While the resort's location earns high marks for its beachfront and proximity to local attractions, opinions on value are split, with some guests questioning the costs of premium services. The accommodations are generally clean and tidy, yet remarks about size and noise are not uncommon. Families particularly enjoy the child-friendly amenities and diverse pools, though the entertainment and drink options sometimes fall short of expectations.

Very good hotel. Wonderful rooms. Our family had 3 different types of rooms and we were all very happy. Big spacious rooms even if the shower was very small. Evangelina and Electra at the reception assisted us with many things during our week. Good advice on excursions and planning. All staff was very helpful!

Hotel's Favorite
I have just spent 10 days at Kiani Beach Resort and I cannot recommend it more highly. Whilst I was there without children, it is seriously a children’s idea of heaven! It’s delightful to watch children so happy and having the best time. For those of us without children there is plenty to do from early morning lane swimming, a well equipped gym, walks into nearby Kalyves, reading books and of course sipping the freshly made cocktails. I have to say all the staff are amazing, friendly and nothing seems too much for them. From the moment you check in to the moment you check out they look after you so well. There is a new exciting project emerging within the hotel, which is going to provide rooms with their own pools, which I can’t wait to see open next year sometime. All in all I recommend 100% Kiani ! You will not be disappointed.

We visited with 2 grown ups and 4 kids (age 7 to 11) in August 2023. We received an absolutely excellent service from the staff there. We accidentally left our son's beloved teddy bear behind when we flew back to England. The lady behind the reception desk, Tsikoudaki Vasiliki, was kind enough to personally post his teddy back to us in England. We were surprised by this excellent service and cannot thank her enough. THANK YOU! As for the rest of the hotel: The beach was great, beautifully clean water with good snorkelling, and we spotted an octopus in the rocks at the end of the beach. There is an ice-cold river in the other direction along the beach, which is great for cooling down in the hot weather. There is a bridge over the river and you can jump off into the ice cold water if you are feeling adventurous. The pool was lovely, nice and clean and not too crowded. Also not too strong on the chlorine, which some hotel pools are. The all-inclusive food was great, with a pretty good variety for the grown-ups, and plenty of beige food for the kids. The food was so good that we didn't venture out to any local tavernas, so we can't comment on them. The only one thing which could have been better was the room for 6 people. It was really a room for 4 people with two extra beds set up in there. So there was not much room and storage for 6 people. It would have been a beautiful room for 4 people though, which would normally be the set up I guess! And it is very difficult to find a room for 6 anywhere so I am pleased that they could accommodate us together. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was nice with a great shower. It was also cleaned daily. No complaints there at all. We went with Easyjet and the package, transfers etc were seamless, with complimentary water in the transfer bus. All in all, a great holiday and a fantastic hotel. Thank you so much!

Sadly wasn’t the best, we upgraded but then had to request the upgraded perks which only half was given! The place was shutting down due to being off peak and you could tell as it wasn’t as “high end” as advertised Not sure I would return sadly

We had a lovely few days premium all inclusive in this hotel at a great location. The staff were so friendly, the food was good and facilities great. We had a junior suite and it was amazing size with a great sea view. Thank you to the reception staff and Evangella for looking after us.

10 of us went for the October week. 2 families. We have 2 adults and 3 kids 14, 13 and 8. We stayed in a maisonette. Very nice - not a great view….we onlooked the carpark but we could see the sea from the balcony at the side and the room was quiet away from any later noise. Room was great, lots of room, cleaned well each day. Comfortable beds and wee mini kitchen tucked way to make lovely coffee etc. We arrived late at night only sandwiches available and small cake. The food is in 2 locations. Tables readily available. Food is tasty but think if we were there much longer we would eat out as gets very repetitive. Staff are wonderful, every single one. In between main meals you can get crepes and sandwiches from the bars. Pools are cold but okay once you are in. Poor nearest the beach is warmest but that also makes it the busiest. Never an issue getting sunbeds. Kids club was brilliant for smaller kids, even our teens joined in the football, volley ball etc. Entertainment staff are fantastic too. Always something going on, yet the resort remains chilled out and pretty quiet. Gteat wee shop Onsight and place to book excursions at really good rates. We went on a fishing trip, brilliant value. We visited the spa……was lovely! Beds a little hard for my liking but treatments were fab and even the kids got chocolate massages! Chania is around 20 minutes away - taxis are cheap - lovely small port. Good for souvenirs. The beach was clean, not very sandy more of a shingle beach but the sea.....oh wonderful. Perfect for a swim. We spent a lot of time in the sea. We would recommend this hotel, lively yet chilled, good food, excellent service and in a lovely location.

1 week at Kiani Beach Resort, we were 11 people. Lots of good food, nice rooms, everything great. Especially nice service from Evangelia and Electra at the reception who fixed everything. Ett toppenkväll att semestra på med familjen, lätt att ta sig till Chania och fina promenader i b3rge.

I returned to the hotel (first visit after the pandemic), and I was extremely happy to see that they have expanded. The new facilities are as good as the old ones and even better. The hotel now offers much more options, including an internal pool and spa. The staff is very helpful, friendly and professional. Food is of excellent quality -not what you usually get in all-inclusive hotels. The location is just amazing. This continues to be by far my best hotel. Again, extremely happy to have stayed there and seen that the standards are so high. I would very warmly recommend this hotel to families and couples.

We went to this resort in the first week of november (which we were told is the last week of the season the resort is open). The pools were not heated but since the weather was lovely with up to 27 degrees Celsius that did not matter. It was actually warmer in the ocean and we therefore used the beach as well with much delight. The room and the service was really good. The food was well prepared and tasty. The local wine and beer included in the all inclusive could be better but we could easily order better wine. We really liked this place and would recommend it especially for familys.

Amazing place-everything was perfect! Great service, friendly staff, amazing food and facilities. It is one of the best hotels (if not the best) in Chania. Both seaside and swimming pools were very nice and since the weather was so sunny I did spend some time there too.
