This place was beautiful, the location was great for a romantic get away as well as for families, the accommodation is basic but it's worth going there is plenty of local food restaurants and a stone throw from the beach the owners were very helpful and had a BBQ for all the guests a place we will visit again.

We enjoyed a lovely stay in our appartment with vieuw of the swimming pool. Our apparment was very nice, every day the floor and the bathroom was cleaned, nice service! A taxiservice was arranged for our pick-up at the airport and after our weeklong stay the same taxi brought us back to the airport. There are three beaches in walking distance from the appartment, all very nice. The restaurants serve great food, we really liked the one next to the supermarket!

We were the four of us recommended to this place by a friend. He said it would be very nice but it turned out to be marvellous, Good rooms, good toilets and a wonderful swimming pool -- even though the quiet bay of Stavrós is only one hundred meters away.
The point is the swimming pool was the meeting point for the inhabitants of all the 18 rooms, at the time of our staying some eight diferente nationalities.
There is no cleaning service on Sundays, what came as a surprise when we realizaded it, but was easily overcome.
The manager, Vaso and her father, Petros, do an incredible job of maintenance and making people feel at ease. and they offer a free barbecue to all residents every other 10 days. Wonderful.
And if you're very, very lucky (and old enough) you even get to be called "papous"...
A Paradise, really.

This is the best place I've ever stayed in Stavrós! Only 2 minute walk from "Zorba 's Beach" and the grocery store and a 10 minute drive from Chania. A swimming pool to alternate with the Sea, if you will. Highly Recomended!

We are staying in the Cathrin Suites' two-bedroom apartment for a week with our two children, ages 9 and 4. It's so much nicer than the usual hotel room - to be able to put the kids to bed in a separate room and close the door is just lovely. We have friends staying in the apartment next door.

Reyna (sp?) and Vasso are a mother-daughter team who run the hotel. They are very sweet and helpful! The bay is a 2-minute walk from the apartment or hotel - it sits between the two. There is a small "grocery" store about 10 minutes' walk from the apartment. There are a couple of casual beachfront restaurants nearby - Elena's has delicious local food!

The apartment is very clean, with a cleaning service everyday and linens changed every three days. Free laundry service (washing, with a drying rack on the back patio). The apartment has a/c, though we've had a lovely breeze through it with the windows and doors open. The hotel also provides some beach and pool toys. We've used the bbq grill near the pool for dinner one evening.

I highly recommend Cathrin Suites and would return here!!

Room Tip: Apartment 1 has a beautiful beach view but Apartment 2 gets a better breeze. :)

We went there last year and we enjoyed ourselves very much. It is a quiet, peaceful hotel and perfect to stay if you have a small child. The nearby beach has excellent and clear waters. You need a transportation to go to Chania, which is about 15 minutes by car. Cleaning isn't as I expected but we had no complaints whatsoever!

Excellent apartments in a very quiet location, but only a few minutes walk away from the beach. The rooms were spacious and clean, with a well equipped kitchenette and a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, water and raki, which we thought was a nice touch.
The pool area was small but never really busy, there is a shaded area with tables and chairs which are available for guests to use, along with the BBQ. There is also a washing machine for use at no extra charge, but as we only had a short stay we didn't use either of these.
Stavros is a very quiet location, but only a short drive from Chania and the airport.
