My husband and I stayed at Ammos on the last leg of a big honeymoon trip to Greece. We actually decided to stay there because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor. It was a good call. We arrived at night and had a car and driver waiting for us. I knew the owner Nikos had arranged a rental car for us, but we didn't know he would drive us to Ammos, which was a major relief arriving late in a new island. We arrived around 10 pm and the little restaurant was packed with people enjoying good dinners. Their zucchini pie is fabulous. The wait staff is very friendly and accomodating. After 5 days in Santorini, we knew we'd be experiencing a very different scene in Crete--and we found it at eclectic, cool Ammos. The pool is tiny but they serve yummy Long Island Iced Teas. The little strip of beach is clean and a pleasant stroll. We really liked the modern rooms, the bath products, and the shower. The price was affordable and not luxury, but very welcoming, clean and relaxing. On a grey day, Nikos showed us the drive on the map to see the Sumaria Gorge, which was a great countryside driving experience (lots of goats and sheep on the roads!) The Well of the Turk in Chania was a recommended restaurant that we enjoyed, but for the price, a bit over-hyped. Be sure to hang out one night in Chania in one of the outdoor restaurants along the little Venetian port--street performers, cool people, lots of action. Chania seems to be very popular with Scandinavian families on holiday. As a Danish-American, I fit right in. We would go back and visit Ammos again.
