Cathrin Suites
Ranked #2 of 5 Stavros B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2012

We stayed during July 2012. We found the experience to be overall good with a nice friendly welcome , great quality pool, patio area and close to the beach at Stavros. The cleaner did a great job making sure the aprtment was freshened up each day along with fresh bedding and towels,
Stavros itself is a very quiet little town with 2 beaches and we spent most of our time in the sheltered lagoon type beach which is brilliant for younger children. The town is close to the airport which makes it a much easier travel experience.

I would recommend the location for people with young children but have a couple of things to be aware of on negative aspects.
The rooms were not of a very high standard of finish with for example only 2 electrical outlets one of which was positioned as close as you get possibly get to the kitchen water tap. The cooking facilities were a electrical hob on the work surface without any ventilation. The poolside tiles are incredibly slippy and we saw at least 3 people take a tumble while we were staying (so watch your young ones).

Based on all of the above and having sample an alternative accomodation close by I would say that the apartments are a little overpriced.

This is a beautiful area and the Cathrin Suites is Heaven on Earth. It's quiet, simple and quite perfect! My husband, daughter and I came for a week and after a few days decided to spend our whole 3 weeks here. The generosity of the owner Vaso- both with her time and local knowledge is wonderful. We were also offered a barbecue with her Dad. The rooms are airy, Wi-fi and Air-con is free and nothing is a problem. Stavros beach itself is beautiful and very chic- restaurants and mini-markets a 2min walk away- love, love, love, will be back !

The Cathrin Suites is run by the lovely Vaso and her father. It is a modern and well maintained property. The swimming pool is to an excellent standard. The rooms are basic and the shower cubicle a little on the small side but overall the rooms are comfortable and very clean. The property is located within a 5 min walk to the beach, mini market and restaurants. The local bus stops right outside the property and it takes approx 30 mins to travel to Chania. The airport is also only 15mins away by taxi. Whilst this is not a 24hr manned establishment the locality is safe and the locals very friendly.

The Cathrin Suite Apartments is family run business where the needs of the customer are at the heart of everything they do; we stayed at in the middle of September 2011 and had a wonderful time. The apartment has everything you would need to be truly self-catering but there also a number of good taverners within a couple of minutes’ walk, as are the two sandy beaches. The apartment’s pool is fantastic and everything is spotlessly clean. In September Stavros is quite quiet but everything is open and you get a real feel for Cretan life. I would definitely recommend a stay here and will be re-booking for this year.

We chose the hotel because we flew into CHQ airport late at night and a second time because we flew out very early. Hotel is a 10 minute drive to/from airport.

Owner was helpful giving directions to hotel and arranging late arrival and early departure.

Room is nice size and has modest kitchen facilities if you want to prepare your own meals.

Located a short walk to beach where they filmed the famous dance in Zorba The Greek. Also many good restaurants at the beach.

Good value, but our only disappointment was that the bathroom was not clean. Clumps of hair in shower from previous guest.

We were there for just one night, twice. But we met other people who were there for a week and really enjoyed it.
