Thalassa Beach Resort

Reviewed August 18, 2013

This hotel suited me very much. 1) Child free. For someone who is a mature adult or lovebirds who do not want to be bothered by children running round the pool or screaming for icecream, it is perfect. 2) Very clean - everywhere - including pool toilets 3) excellent wifi all over the hotel - a must even when you are on holiday - or at least for me - and free 4) very good service - we were made to feel welcome by all without having to become best buddies with all the staff 5) compact - it is not a massive establishment where you have to walk miles to get anywhere. The pool area is really close to the beach, which isn't massive so you have a choice without having to move everything when you decide to go to the sea after the pool or vice versa. 6) Very relaxed atmosphere without being "too" relaxed! Overall I was very impressed by it. It didn't feel understaffed either. We had an issue with the room - we had ordered a junior suite, but had not realized that the bed and TV were upstairs and the toilet and sitting area were downstairs. For me it was a problem as I have a bit of a mobility issue. This was efficiently solved, despite it being super high season during the week we were there and I was very satisfied. The pool bar seemd to be open nearly nonstop, which was very good, as in many places we go, the pool bar seems to open after breakfast which is ok if you aren't an early riser but if you are, it is a bit of an irritation. There were some small things that I think could have been improved upon, like the layout of the breakfast and the quality of the tea and coffee, but it was 95% excellent. The guy responsible for the beach and pool area was really outstanding. He was cleaning up all the time and there was no litter anywhere, the beds were straightened out as soon as they were vacated and he was really quick and worked nonstop. Definitely a place I would revisit if I went back to this area of Crete.

Room Tip: If you don't want to negotiate stairs, say it when you book in. Worth paying for a sea view as t...

I stayed at this hotel on August 2013 for 4 nights. It is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in Greece. It offers exceptional value for money!!! I highly recomend this hotel. Very nice and polity staff; always willing to help us. Very clean rooms and nice food. It is very quiet; it is the best place to relax. The spa is very good as well.

This is one of the best hotels i ever stayed in. Everything is as shown in the pics. Nice rooms, very clean, very nice shower - toilet, excellent breakfast and very nice and helpful staff. The view is great and the location perfect. 10 minutes walk to platanias were you can find bars restaurants cafes shopping supermarkets etc. The only minus is that it is not so near to chania cty center if you don't have a car. if you do it is perfect.

We stayed at Thalassa Beach Resort in July 2013 for a week and had an incredible vacation. The hotel was smaller and more intimate than we expected, which was a very nice surprise! As a couple, we value quiet and privacy, which is why we chose Thalassa (an adult only hotel) and we were not disappointed.

The hotel staff are truly remarkable. They went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating, and they were almost all very friendly and funny. Manos and Girgio (apologies for the possibly incorrect spellings gentlemen!), as well as the hotel manager/owner Mariana, were particularly wonderful people! They took care of all reservations for us and recommended some great activities. The one tiny issue that we had (so small it's not really worth mentioning in detail because it was really just a misunderstanding) was handled very professionally and with a lot of effort by the staff and by Mariana, which we very much appreciated!

The hotel is on a nice stretch of beach, but also has a nice grassy area by the pool for those who don't care to get sand everywhere. There were plenty of sun beds, which meant we didn't have to fight over them with other guests, and the main road with tons of shops and restaurants were right behind the hotel, so it was easy to walk to everything. The car we rented through the hotel was delivered to us and picked up from the hotel, so we didn't have to worry about anything (and for those who are wondering about foreign licenses, my Canadian license was not a problem to rent the car!).

Thank you so much to Thalassa's staff for making our holiday so fantastic. We will definitely be back and we highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering staying in the Chania region.

Room Tip: Obviously if you can afford it, the sea view rooms are lovely, but I think you might actually have m...

Nice room, exactly as described and shown on website but very loud fan from the room below was disturbing and the curtains were insufficient making the room very bright in the morning. The room was clean, food at breakfast and at lunch was generally excellent and the staff were friendly for the most part. The Spa was ok too. Unfortunately the beach in front of the hotel is very rocky making access to the water difficult. The beach is much sandier if you walk a few hundred metres along in either direction. The hotel does provide free beds and umbrellas at its own beach and the wifi is accessible from the beach which is a nice bonus. The pool with the swim up bar is nice too.

Hotel very comfortable and clean. Staff is really very kind and helpful, and they try to solve all the problems. Upon arrival we were upgraded from a Junior-suite to a Suite free of charge. Unfortunately the room was noisy and smelly-due to kitchens below- for our standards, so we asked for a change and we were immediately assisted by the staff. We finally got a junior-suite which was smaller but definitively suited our needs. We could also take advantage of the nice balcony. The Hotel has direct access to the seaside with facilities included, and the sea is wonderful. There is a nice pool (not for swimming training). We had chosen this hotel also for the yoga-pilates and Aqua-gym lessons advertised, thinking they were daily. Actually we only had 1 pilates and 1 aqua-gym lesson in a week, maybe because it was only June. We had the Breakfast only package, and it was perfect so every night we were free to eat at different restaurants, either in the surroundings or the locations we visited day by day. Breakfast is gorgeous, even if we are not used to eat all the food they provide (white wine too is included, for us it is unusual!), but if you need an espresso coffee you are charged of extra 2.50 each, which seemed a little strange provided that there was a cook only to cook eggs and bacon and all sort of food, for no extra charge.
We had rented a car so in a week we managed to see the Balos Lagoon (a paradise on earth, but do not go by boat, chose to go by car, easier than you would expect - and note: Balos does have beach facilities, do not bring umbrellas), Falasarna Beach, Cnosso and Heraklion, Chania, Imbros Gorges (better go there rather than Samaria), Marathi Beach, Kalathassa.
Our stay in Thalassa was perfect and we would definitively recommend this structure to friends and trip advisor users.
Crete is a wonderful island and is so warm and romantic!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the upper floor (they are junior suites or suites), because I have noticed that tho...
