It's an OK hotel with OK rooms. Come if you have kids and need space instead of thrills.

For me interminable bad quality WiFi is enough to strike off a hotel, as are paper thin walls between rooms. But if you don't feel the same, and you don't mind walking a few hundred meters to the beach, you may find the Pilot adequate.

Service was friendly and welcoming, but hardly professional. The TV reception in my room wasn't fixed for days.

On the bright side: The laundry service was able to completely remove red-wine stains...

We have spent 7 wonderful days in the very relaxing atmosphere of this hotel. Overall service was smooth, warn and friendly wherever we went in the resort, all facilities are absolutely clean and very well kept.
The tennis and swimming teachers were really great with our kids !

We have just returned from the most wonderful family holiday at Pilot beach resort. 9 nights in a family room, us and our 3 children, age 6, 11 and 12. It could not have been better. The hotel is incredibly well run, the facilities are fantastic. We had a family room overlooking the main pool close to the restaurant which was ideal for us as we could get to everything very easily. yes there is a road that bisects the resort but really was not a problem, we did not notice it. The weather was great, just a couple of days which were a bit grey. The place was spotless and the staff could not have been more friendly and professional. We had full board and the food was great, buffet eating, but great choice and it never felt repetitive. Beach gorgeous. Huge plus was the kids club both for the smaller ones and the teens, the animation team were the best we have ever come across, fun, relaxed, helpful and very kind. They had a great energy, loads of activities which we took part in as well, football, beach volley ball, bocha bocha, darts, arts and crafts and loads more. There is a good in door pool and gym with aqua aerobics and zumba etc. The site is really well laid out with loads of pools and as I said a lovely sandy beach, shallow water great for kids to swim in. We hired a car which we found useful for a couple of day trips, but to be honest we just stayed put and chilled out. There is a good local town just a walk or quick drive away.

It really was a great holiday as there was something for all of us, we were able to fully relax, the kids made friends and we all made full use of the various activities. We will definitely be coming back.

I travelled with wife and a 2,5 year-old child

General:
- the hotel is located between Georgiopoulis (8km) and Chania (10 km)
- rooms are bungalows of various quality (depending on equipement, location and pool- or sea-view)
- 4 different pools and a sea border

Accomodation:
- the room was equipped with a bathroom (toilet, bathtub,sink), double bed, couch (convertable to bed), balcony, air conditionning and TV
- furniture was a bit old, but in good state of use
- bedsheets and towels were changed every day
- safe deposit box was extra
- a child's bed was provided free of charge

Recreational:
- each of the 4 pools are equiped with a shallow bassin for small children
- pool borders were well maintained, and structures were in good shape
- 1 additionnal pool was dedicated children (slides)
- 1 playground with various implements for children
- a mini-club was available for children of 4 years or older (included with the stay, children seemed to really like the carers at the time of our stay)
- a mini-disco was available each night for children of all age (with animation by the mini-club personel)
- daily evening shows were followed by a disco
- daily activities were available (archery, fitness,...) in which we didn't take part (small child and family vacation)

Food:
- buffet with a wide choice, both local and international (but with a greater tendency for international)
- quality was altogether good
- kid's buffet was available all day even if you had only half-board (although the choice was rather limited and repetitive)

Staff:
- friendly and always ready to answer questions/help in anyway they could
- a special thanks for the mini-club staff who entertained children even outside the context of the mini-club

Pro's:
- good structures for families
- good service/staff

Con's:
- isolated from urban centers without good public transportation system

we have stayed in this hotel - resort last year
this was just fantastic!
the real feature of this resort is the beach - one of the best I've ever seen and ever could even imagine!
its good also for kids and adults - people of any age definitely would find it enjoying!
the other thing about this hotel I would like to emphasize is the food!
everything is so fresh, tasty and , despite there are many people in the hotel it si always place to seat in one of the numerous restaurants there and its always very - very nice food!
accomodation was very cosy for us , we enjoyed a some of the swimming pools , located also in the middle of accomodation blocks.
animation was nice !
we really enjoyed our stay there , just perfect!!!
it 's also close to Hania city - an amasing, beautiful city, worth - seeing!!!

we still remember our stay with warmth and dream to come back one day!
