Stayed here for just one night (our last night) as it is close to the airport. The rooms were massive (with separate living room and bedroom). Only downside is the ac was only in the bedroom, and we didn't have a balcony.
The bed was so comfy!
Yannis was very friendly and chatty.

We stayed at the Esplande apartments during a week long break to Crete. The apartments are located about 10-15mins from Chania airport and a further 10-15mins to Chania town. We were met by the great host, Yiannis, upon arrival and shown around our room. The rooms are basic, but well furnished, spacious and very clean – beds were comfortable, great shower, lovely sea views from most of the balconies. Given how reasonable the rates were, I thought this was a very well presented and furnished apartment.

The location is nice if you like being slightly out of the hustle and traffic of Chania town, but close enough to reach it in a few minutes by car. You might struggle by bus, but I’m sure the hotel owner could advise – we got loads of excellent advice about less well known places to visit and the tourist traps to avoid.

Overall a really excellent stay, a welcoming host and great value. Would have no problem recommending.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the property have the best view, balconies that look out over the beach and the sea.

Located just 10km from Chania Airport Esplanade Hotel Apartments was a perfect place to start our Crete Adventure. Our flight was late in the evening so we were looking for a place located not far from the airport. Esplanade was our choice and it was a good one ! Yiannis is a great host which gave us a feel of greek hospitality. He will even put your country flag on the post in front of the hotel !!
A GPS is must when driving from the airport in the dark. It was not easy to find :)

Apartments are spacious and clean. When we arrived Yiannis left some snacks,water and Raki on our table :) There is a fridge and fully equipped kitchen in the apartment which is very handy when staying longer than 1 day.

The pool is great with good views on the coast.
The sandy beach and restaurants are located just 1300m from the hotel but you need to walk partly on the road so be careful when walking with kids. Also be aware of the dogs!
The sandy beach is great for children !

Kalathas is also a great for exploring Chania Town. Distance is about 15km

A group of 6 of us stayed for 4 days in the three bedroom apartment. Yaniss went above and beyond in welcoming us, including flying the Canadian flag. It is basic accommodation, no elevator and no fancy furniture etc. but great value in a great location very accessible to Chania and to the national highway and the airport. A car is recommended but there is bus service to the village. Once you figure out the winding roads it is relatively easy to get around. Keep in mind that he closes for the winter. We were the last to check out I believe.

As other reviewers have said, Yiannis is a brilliant host - he met us from the airport and even stopped off at the supermarket so we could stock up on essentials on our way to the apartments. We stayed here for 7 nights in September and had a one bedroomed apartment with a small balcony overlooking the apartments next door (Extremely noisy family next door for the first few days!). Although we got the morning sun with breakfast on the balcony, unfortunately this meant our only sea view was from the shared stairway and not the sea view balcony we thought we had booked, as the kitchen area window looked out onto the side of the next apartment. The apartment next to us would have been lovely with it's wrap around balcony of a decent size with good views - I don't know the number of this one but it is above the main reception.The facilities and equipment in the apartment are very good, the bathroom having the usual mixer tap over a hip bath, and the kitchen had a full sized fridge and kettle, two electric rings, coffee maker, toaster etc. Twin beds in the bedroom, which was air conditioned, and flyscreens at all of the windows and heavy metal blinds also in the bedroom. The apartment was kept spotlessly clean, and we had good quality towels (including tea towels) provided every day. Kalathas itself is little more than a hamlet, with the nearest of the 2 supermarkets within an easy walk. The beach was just over a mile away, and would have meant an uphill walk for the return journey so if you have any mobility issues you would need to use a car (as we did). The beach itself is great, as are the others on Akrotiri peninsular. There are some airbases nearby so there is quite a bit of noise from aircraft, but we didn't find this a problem. Chania old town/harbour is a very easy drive and a must see. Eating out can be a bit of a chore, as there is virtually nothing within walking distance, so this meant driving every evening to either neighbouring Chorofakia (Irenes for Greek food, Ramblers for steaks) or Kounoupidiana (Burakis for Greek food). Personally, I think 7 nights was too long in Kalathas, but it obviously depends on what you want to do and if you don't mind not having facilities within walking distance.

Room Tip: Ask for the apartment over the reception if you want a good view and plenty of balcony space
