Kalimera! Surely the ultimate place to relax, bath, eat, recharge your batteries, and to go exploring surrounding sights from. Those complaining about the service from the hotel staff, most likely are themselves the source of problems! This is a cozy place, with nice, warm people serving with a smile. Where you learn greek and their culture and their way of living. Must be experienced first hand.

Having read the good reviews and visited the promising website for this hotel we were eager to place our reservation. We only asked for three things: balcony with direct sea view, a double bed (not two singles pushed together which is mostly the case in Greece) and a kitchenette. The hotel owners promised us a room (17A) which came with all of the above, they even showed us what the view would look like from this room. Upon viewing the photos and after a LONG DETAILED email correspondence we quickly paid the reservation fee of 150€ by credit card in advance to ensure the booking of this room.

Upon arriving, we were swiftly taken to a room in the back of the hotel (not the one as promised). The view was only partially of the sea from an awkward angle and the 'balcony' was the entrance to our apartment which was accessible to everyone. On the 'balcony' we could barely talk because there was very loud ventilation noise.

We then spoke with one of the hotel owners who promised to take care of the problem the next day. They offered us a different room the next day which did have a direct sea view but no double bed. We were clearly disappointed because we had made this reservation months in advance and should not have to accept anything less than the promised offer. The hotel owners lost their temper then asked us if we expect them to build balconies all along the sea side.

The upside: it's clean. The beach is nice.

The downside: The restaurant food is below average. They also charge you for 'service' without letting you know in advance. The worst is that they didn't keep their promise and we would have never gone there otherwise. They didn't offer us a discount which would have been the appropriate thing to do in such a case.

Lovely little place far away from the stress in Platanias, Kato Stalos and Chania. The restautant was probably the best part. Genuine delicious greek food.

The staff is realy friendly, the food is home made. It's a familly hotel.
The beach is quite nice (there is better anyway) but the view is amazing.

We got the sea front room and it was so peacefull! The room is comfortable, spacious, the bathroom is perfect.

I advice this hotel without any problem!

We stayed only for one night, but we had the time to experience the courtesy of Mrs Maria, the friendliness of the staff, the quickness of service, the very nice and correctly-priced dinner in its restaurant, the fantastic view over the sea from the studio and the nice breakfast, served aside the beach.
