“we agree with Boudicca_UK”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Just back after a weeks last min holiday. Got a cheap flight with Ryan air and chose this accommodation based on price - did a smart deal with booking.com and location. Was not disappointed - didn't actually pay until we were leaving (23 euros a night for 2 of us free ac and safe) and literally right on the beach. We agree with everything Boudicca-UK wrote even down to the hairdryer. We stayed in room 18 which was great and room 19 probably even better as also has side balcony. Lidls was closed for our first 3 days as easter there but once opened we stocked up and were able to prepare breakfast and lunch in our room. Slight problem is that the electricity goes off when you leave the room so any frozen stuff defrosts. Eating out was quite expensive...... restaurants up on the hill in old village much nicer and better priced. Belvedere and Almiras were
lovely we had the Greek plate in both. Buses stop at the end of the short lane and run frequently so it is easy to get into Chania which we did one evening ..... a must. Would not hesitate in recommending it l actually felt quite sorry for the people in the five star hotel next door who spent most of their time in the taverna next to our accomodation. By the way we used the sunbeds for free the whole week we just ensured we bought breakfast there the first day and the odd drink throughout the week and they are happy. Please support this family run hotel and save yourself some money to boot you can then spend it in the local family restaurant s and shops rather than goi g HB or FB and giving your money to the big internationally owned hotel chains.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view but go for first floor and room 18 or 19 Sun on balcony afternoon and eveni...

We are actually staying here now. This was basically one of the cheapest hotels I could find for a cheeky little break on a budget. What a find! It is spotlessly clean, if I didn't know better I would think it was a new build - but finished, unlike many Greek buildings ;o)
The room is basic but comfortable - the professional photos on here are exact. The shower is hot, the bathroom is also spotless as is the shower curtain. The beds are comfortable (I like them quite hard). The kitchenette is small but functional - sufficient for preparing breakfast or a snack. The wi-fi works perfectly (as you can see) for me but for some reason my husband can't connect.
From our small balcony at the front of the hotel we have a view of the sea and the sun in the afternoon/evening. The hotel is situated at the end of the main street near a Lidl but there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance even at this time of year (a lot don't open until May).
The owners are very friendly and we try our best to exchange a few words in Greek and in English. There was no hairdryer in the room but she provided me with one as soon as I asked. The only thing missing were mugs for our tea - but that's a very British thing and we have bought two as souvenirs so no problem.
If you want something nice on a budget don't hesitate!

Room Tip: They all appear to be good rooms. All the balconys appear to be at the front of the hotel and have a...

Not far from Platanias center but still in quiet place, right on the beach! Beach is not sandy, it is little pebble. Staff is very friendly and ready to help, wi-fi works perfectly. Very good quality for the price! We were given the best room in the hotel with great sea view!
You'll have to pay for the sunbeds since they belong to the bar.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and although its at the far end of Platanias its a lovely place. There is a bigger hotel close by, but we were not troubled by noise. They are also building / opening a bar next to the hotel.

The apartment itself is basic, but neat and clean. There is also attached a balcony so where you can enjoy side-ocean view. There is no pool associated with the hotel as far as I know, but the beach is about 25-50 meters away.

There is a big parking place outside which we were able to use for free. There is a bus stop just outside so taking the bus to Chania is a breeze.

Room Tip: There are some rooms, that will give you the possibility to move the chairs and table from the balco...

Have just returned from an 11 day stay at this GREAT Hotel. Panos Beach Hotel Is at the far end of Platanias & next door to the Very Posh Minos Spa, but is in no way a poor relation. The room was clean, comfortable & more than ' basic'. The owners/managers & staff were very helpful & friendly.
I know that it was the begining of the season, so the bar wasn't open, but this was not a problem as it is only a short walk to the main road where you have a huge choice of tarvernas, snack bars & shops.
I had a car, but the bus service is good & the bus stop is at the top of the road. I shall be re-booking for next year & have already recommended this hotel to friends.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

OK accomodation, and just that. Beds,bathroom,balcony,kitchenette.
Clean and well maintained. No shower curtain. Free WiFi (which did not work...).
A/C included in room rate.
Very close to the beach and the rest of Platanias.
All in all a good alternative, if you only need a place to shower and sleep.

Hotel is located on the beach, and about 50 meters from the main road, where is a bus station. Center of the village is within a 10 minutes walk. Nearby is a grocery store.There is free parking lot .
Our room was spacious, with the fully functional kitchenette, small TV, balcony with the side view of the sea, safe deposit box (2 euros per day) and air conditioner (we haven't used it, so I don`t know is it free of charge or not). Room was very clean; sheets were changed three times during our 10 days stay. Bathroom is small but functional.
Hotel stuff were very nice and helpful. Our flight back home was scheduled for the evening, and they let us use the room until our departure time, although check out time is 7:00-12:00. That was a really pleasant surprise.
Between hotel and the beach there is a tavern - bar, which provides sun beds and umbrellas on the green yard and on the beach.
The only thing that wasn't functioning well was wi-fi. It was supposed to be available in the hotel, but the signal was good only in the reception area.
There is not much noise in the neighborhood, so it is a good place for relaxing vacation.
I would choose this hotel again for vacation in Platanias.
