“3 days of beach....”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We spent 3 days, 2 nights at the Fata Morgana and it was truly a peaceful experience. Our sons had a great time on the beach which is a short walk to a beautiful sandy spot. The hotel is amongst olive groves that provides shade, there is a playground for the kids and the room comes fully equipped with a kitchen and utensils. It is worth the trip from Chania!

Room Tip: Ask for a lower level room and close to the road - short walk to the beach.

What a great place. All the staff were fabulous. The staff serves a great dinner and a tasty breakfast complete with a latte. The beach is one of the best we have been at. We also explored the coast and found other great sites. Enjoy enjoy enjoy

Room Tip: Tower is fun if you can negotiate the circular staircase

We have now stayed at Fata Morgana seven times and will be back again. Having been to many other places in Greece, this is the best. If you want loud music and nightclubs forget it. If you want to relax then it does not get any better.

The apartments and taverna are situated in an olive grove and are overlooking a beautiful uncrowded beach. Apartments have air-conditioning, TV etc and are of a good standard. Prices are reasonable and the family who run the place are very welcoming and friendly.

Nice spacious apartments, very nice location for a run-away from the crowded north coast areas of the island. Nice apartments with all the basics available (a shower curtain in the bathroom would not be an accessory though). Quality, value for money food offered at the tavern and, George who runs it is the best guy. And a border collie lover as well!

I am from Crete and i choose it for my holidays every year. Great value for money, clean unspoiled very long beach, suitable for a range of visitors ( families with small children to nudism lovers), a lot of possibilities of day-trips and excursions around ( hiking, canyon, traditional villages, short cruises). Last but not least the great traditional food and the very friendly, funny and honest staff. It is a family business. If you seek night life, touristic fuss don't go there. This is a place that we choose to relax and detox.

Just passing by after checking all the possibilities and recommondations for Frangocastello, a newspaper said it was the best beach on Crete.
(=more sand og less stoneysand/stones) so I have to check it, I agree, but
not always easy to enter.
There is no nightlife etc but for beach, good food (+several taverna,s in the naborhood)
and apartments/studios, better standerd than we where used to on Crete.
Even the service of the reception is so flexible and helpfull, that I am ...
And they have free Wifi ! a bit slow but functional, here is nearby no other...
and always better than the best recommondations with paying call up internet.
The area is expecting fiber next month, so than there wil be more competion,
but as I see it, is this the onlyone who do maintenance and keep it upgrade,
a big problem in this village and general on Crete .
