We have just returned from a 9 night stay at the Chryssana Beach Hotel.
Initially, we had booked to stay half board but were not impressed with the standard of the food in the restaurant and were told that we would only have to pay for what we ate at the hotel - so that was the last we had to endure of it! We felt that the restaurant was trying too hard to be something that it wasn't and would have been much better had they served traditional Greek food, which they rarely did. A bowl of coleslaw as a starter and bland pasta dishes for main courses were the general options. As in the previous review, there was no house wine which was also disappointing and made it expensive to drink in the hotel.
However, if you take away the evening meals, the hotel is absolutely idyllic. We had such a great time and the room, pool and restaurant area were all beautiful and kept spotlessly clean. The staff are really great - friendly and helpful. The beach over the road from the hotel is not the greatest but the sea is lovely. The pool at the hotel is really fantastic!
It is definitely worth hiring a car and seeing the beautiful sights that are very near to the hotel.
The restaurants in Kolymbari are magnificent and serve beautiful fresh seafood and traditional Cretan cuisine. They are very reasonably priced and the people are so friendly and really value your custom.
Overall, we had such a fantastic holiday that was made all the better for staying the beautiful Chryssana Beach Hotel. We would definitely return and recommend to others.
