Excellent location just by the sea side. Beach not big, partially sandy but also with stones. Sufficient amount of sun beds and umbrellas so there was always something free both next to the pool and on the beach.
Food not too varied unfortunatelly. There were very good moments with for example huge shrimps, tasty lamb or delicious barbecue chicken served but usually nothing special. It is of course not that you were leaving the restaurant hungry but I would expect more after a 5 star hotel. As for the fruit: water melon and oranges always available. Other like grapes or peaches were there only at the beginnig of each meal. Traditional Greek sweets: I saw only twice.
So I ended up eating tzatziki with some baked aubergine or other vegetable and some fish 2 weeks long and was happy anyway because I didn't have to cook myself:)
For breakfast fresh orange juice! Lovely idea. But you had to wait for it in a line for a couple of minutes because the machine was slow and each guest was taking several glasses!
The restaurant clean, a table always available. Fast and nice service.
All inclusive drinks: just what you can expect from them: the best thing about them is that they're already paid:) White wine was ok.
Room quite spacious. Clean. Huge bed but with one uncomfortable materace in my opinion. A shower in a bathtub.
Great animation team and program. Always something to choose from. Animators with great sense of humor, very friendly. Thanks Momo, Eva, Partycja, Anita and all!
Hotel nicely situated only 45 minutes bus drive from the city of Chania. Bus tickets: 2,6 Eur one way. Car rental in a hotel. Daily price I think it was 55 Euro. I recommend going to Elafonissi, which looks like some laguna in Hawaii. Beautiful place around 110 km from the hotel.
In my opinion the hotel is best for families (as least there were only families during our 2 week stay).
I would recommend it for sure.
Kiani Beach staff: thank you for the relaxing time we had with you. My only suggestion is that you could work on the food a bit. Thanks again & best regards.
