“First class, I really loved Thalassa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2009

Thalassa Beach Resort is a good choice for holiday. It’s luxurious, clean, beautiful and the staff is extremely friendly. Food was good and there was plenty of choices also. It is situated near Platanias, so if you want to party, just take a short walk there.

We spent two weeks at Thalassa on our honeymoon and enjoyed every minute. Special thanks to the staff!

Agree wholeheartedly with previous reviewer. Hotel was very pleasant, and the staff were very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. All in all it was a very relaxing stay in a hotel that was spotlessly clean and tidy. Although we were half board we did eat out a fair bit as we felt that the food could have been a bit warmer. However, there was plenty of choice and the opportunity to eat outside if you so wished. Chania was lovely and was easy to access by bus. Plenty of eating places in the vicinity of the hotel.

Stayed one week at the hotel and it was a very pleasuable experience. The hotel was probably not much more than half full and there were only a couple of small children with most residents being over 50. We had a junior suite on the top floor with a sea view and the room was top notch. Restaurant served a wide choice of Greek and other European food and it was always good quality, although some dishes could have been kept a bit warmer. All parts of the hotel were spotless and service was very good. Entertainment was only provided on one night and this was Greek dancers (ugh). Beach was directly accessed from hotel and there was no traffic noise. Only complaints were: 1. hotel charged residents 3euro per sun bed per day on the beach, 2. not much atmosphere, 3. pool was small. Aside from this the hotel is located in Agia Marina and this is just a road lined with shops and bars with absolutely no character, although everyone was friendly. Overall a nice experience, although shame about resort itself.

Just come back from a week's stay at The Thalassa Beach Resort Hotel. We had paid for a sea view (a must) but was given an upgrade on arrival to a Junior Suite (lovely). The views from the balcony were supurb. The hotel was smaller than we usually stay in (80 rooms) but it made it a more intimate place to stay. We could not fault the hotel in anyway. The food was excellent and plenty of choice, the public areas were very pleasant and the pool and pool bar were also of a high standard. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. There was plenty to do in the resort itself and there was also a train going to several different places throughout the day. Chania itself is very nice and well worth a visit. This is one place we will certainly be going back to.

  • Liked — The hotel room with an amazing view of the pool area and sea
  • Disliked — Having to rush down for our evening meal so we could sit outside on the terrace. If was not a big enough area.

Arranging our third Crete holidays, we were considering hotels in the Western part of an island as we have previously been to the East (Agios Nikolaos) and Center(Hersonissos). Finally from the tree variants Thalassa beach was chosen due to the number of reasons:
1) This hotel is unpopular with "vodka tourists", as we later find out most of the guests were respectfull Scandinavian, German, French in their late 40th, with somewhat 15-20% young couples as us. Perfect mix i must say to unwind and relax.
2) Location and transport accesability is nearly perfect, except the point of long road if your flight is to Iraklio airport, though there is an airport of Chania, which is somewhat 20-25 km from the hotel.
3) Hotel is brand new working 3 season only. All the facilities as was find out later are in perfect conditions.
4) The price was reasonable as for 4+ star hotel

All described reasons are factually in charge, moreover you receive superhelpfull staff, especial kind regards to restaurant staff they are perfect.
The only drawback of the hotel is rather smallish territory and some rooms facing not very pleasant parking area (take sea view)
Agia Marina itself is typical touristic place, with supermarkets, souvenir stalls and rent houses. Here i want to warn you, if you are planning to rent a transport, in any case i would not recommend you to deal with Euromotor rental which though is the nearest rentpoint to hotel. Under the ads of "bargain deals" and "special prices" unfortunatelly lies poor management and potentially dangerous unproperly kept bikes and cars, which are hardly used and sometimes need an immediate replacement. All this described i felt myself being so unlucky to rent a bike with them.
Anyway I strongly recommend you to rent your own transport, because all best beaches and points of interest lies out of Agia Marina, Platanias etc.
The pool bar and a beach even being very attractive, surely are not the places you should spend your holiday in.
