We stayed in Lito beach for one week in early September (three adults and one teen). The hotel was great and it absolutely lived up to our expectations. It was quiet and very clean. The beach was right beside the hotel. The restaurant in the hotel was good and the staff was friendly. The only con was that the AC wasn’t included. The hotel lived up to our expectations and for the price you couldn’t ask for more. Platanias is about 2 km away so it was easy to walk.

The hotel is small and right by the beach. I liked the calm location and it was perfect for a nice and calm vacation. The room was basic but we did not spend that much time there. The cleaning was ok. I would have liked to have some utilities to be able to do the dishes. I also wished that the receptionists would have provided some information at the check in. He did not give any information at all. The wi-fi did not work at all. The breakfast was ok. We enjoyed lunch at the restaurant and the staff in the restaurant was very nice. The portions are huge an are perfect to share. It was easy to take the bus to Chania for more action. It was also a short walk to Platanias. The beach was ok but not very child friendly. Bit waves and it get deep fast. But the kids loved to pick and play with the rocks.

The hotel itself is fine, too pricy, but fine. The location of the hotel could be better, it is hard to get around on your own if you do not rent a car. It is however easy to get to Chania with public transportation, the bus is easy to catch and will lead you directly to the city center in one hour. The reason why this review is only one Star is because of the business practise that they have. Locals which are not living on the hotel and are not paying is sitting at the same time as you and getting free breakfeast, icecream and drinks. Also multiple times when the locals arive they will take up the entire pool and show no manners towards the paying hotel guests. This even happend at times where you could not bath in the ocean due to massive waves. This resulted in hotel guests having to retreat from the pool area in order to give the locals space. It was quite clear that this was normal practise for the hotel and that these locals were friends and family of the hotel personal. My recommendation is to pick another hotel. With the additional charges of aircondition and personal lockbox, This hotel have costed us the same as a 4 Star hotel where things like aircondition, personal lockbox and a higher standard is included without additional fees.

Small hotell, close to the beach. There is a small restaurant next to the pool with pretty good food. They serve big portions, so you can split a portion for lunch. The personal is nice and service minded, both at the restaurant and at the reception. The room are small and a little out of date, but it’s clean and fresh. The biggest issue is that it is a public pool which means that everyone can go there. People come from other hotels and apartments to swim and play here. On the weekends there is so much people that you hardly can be in the pool or the pool area. If you travel with kids you maybe like it here. If you travel as a couple or just want a relaxing holiday = don’t go here. We won’t come back here again
