Amalthia Beach Resort
Ranked #13 of 111 Hotels in Chania Town
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Clean, welcoming resort, with staff friendly at all occasions.
Breakfast good, probably presentation and variation could be improved. Dinner in the outside taverna close to the swimming pool and in front of the sea : superb !
Going to visit the western part of Crete, with Chania and the overwhelming nature as highlights, this resort in Agia Marina is the right option.

We have been to Crete before but never to this area. Location great not too busy but plenty to see and do. The hotel is excellent right on the beach so plenty of sun bathing and a great place to walk especially along the beautiful long sea shore. The room was lovely at the side of the hotel was quiet and restful. Did bed and breakfast which was very good, had a couple of meals in the taverna also very good. The staff are the best they will do anything to make your stay enjoyable the service they provide is excellent true Greek hospitality. Will definitely go back.

Looking for a clean, modern welcoming hotel right on the beach in a beautiful location?..look no further! From the moment we arrived the service received was faultless, from reception, to the bar, maintenance, cleaning, catering wherever and whoever attention to detail simply superb. Breakfast was good, dinner in the hotel's taverna also very enjoyable. The location right on a raked beach, Perfect relaxation well needed.

As we had been there before, we decided to return to this wonderful and first class hotel for our annual holiday. The eleven days we enjoyed in the comfort of this resort which is adjacent to the beach were unforgettable. The staff are a true team, professional and friendly at all times. They will always aim to provide their guests with the best of the best - whatever their hearts desire. Moreover, they succeed in their attempts. Truly a 10/10 experience.

The hotel itself is continuously kept immaculately clean, with comfortably sized rooms and balconies with seaview. The food in the restaurant is of an unrivalled quality with an atmosphere suitable to romantic couples, good friends, or family trips.

I would advise anyone who is thinking to go to Crete to consider this option as you will not regret it. Truly heaven.

Kind regards,

Daniel & Marloes

Room Tip: We have stayed at two different rooms now. If you want seaview, ask for it. If you would like a more...

We were looking for something inexpensive and not too old in Chania and we have found it.
It was me, my wife and our 5 months son. We stayed there in May 2013.

Went for half board, regretted it. Food in the evening was so so and service wasn't always spot on and quick. Ended up going out in the evenings most of the time as food around the hotel was great and cheap. Breakfasts were ok, but always the same. You will get bored if you stay there for more than a week.

The beach was good, however we had to pay for loungers - a bit strange. Never used the pool, but it was ok. Drinks at the bar were good, few cocktails they made for me were amazing + they would always top it up with free raki in the end.

Comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Wifi didn't work in our room so we had to go to the reception if we needed it.

All in all, good inexpensive hotel. Would recommend.

We stayed in Amalthia for 10 days in July and was absolutely fantastic! The resort is right at the beach, with restaurant and swimming pool also next to it so you can basically go form your bed to the beach without crossing the street!!. The staff was absolutely friendly and gave us all the good tips to visit the best parts of the island. The room was very clean and comfortable with a balcony and air conditioner. We had most of the meals at the restaurant of the hotel next to the beach which prepares traditional and DELICIOUS Greek dishes with genuine ingredients. The only downside was no internet access in the room and my boyfriend was not happy with that as he also came for a conference and needed to work in the hall, However it was a problem with the antenna, nothing to do with the hotel itself). However after the conference he just dropped the laptop and enjoyed Amalthia as I did while he was studying. Also, the breakfast is fantastic!!!! fresh food everyday directly form Cretan countryside!!... Having visited southern Italy's paradisaical beaches, the Catalonian Costa Brava, and southern France, and explored the Mexican Pacific during the last 5 years, we agree these were the best beach/summer vacations we've had. Overall it was a great holiday and we definitely will come back next year, we cant wait till the next summer!!!
