9.6 Excellent (118 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Kristall Suites in Chania, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Agia Marina Beach and Platanias Beach. Free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything - it's perfect. But if I have to pick one thing, the attention to detail in the cleaning and the preparation of the room is better than I've seen before for such a place.... But then the view, the breeze, the sound of the sea, family vibe,... Yeah, it's perfect.
Cons: Nothing - it's perfect.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everthing was perfect.It's a very lovely,cozy,spacious hotel. Only a few steps on the beach, and has a beutiful view. Also, incredibly kind.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect. Maria and Anastasia were great hosts and they helped me with everything I needed. Rooms were clean and spacious, not mentioning beautiful view from balcony. I have only positive words for this property. I will definitely come back and stay with Kristall Suits when I come back to Crete.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, pleasant staff, nice beach with free sunbeds and umbrella, I suggest sea side appartments, economy is street side
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hostess (Anastasia) is super kind and welcoming. She even played with our 3 year old daughter :) This is the true beach front location with private sunbeds and umbrellas.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Simply wonderful! We just came back today and can’t wait to write something for the place. The people in the hotel are just so nice to us, especially my little one-year-old. Many guests are return guests over the years and sits often in courtyards together with the nice hotel family. It’s like you are part of the family, not guests. The owner loved our daughter and bought her a nice little plush dog in a pink purse! She has been carrying it everywhere. Obviously these have all added so much value to our stay. Regarding the hospitality side, the hotel is spotless clean! Tough an aparthotel, the room was cleaned on daily basis: our used dishes cleaned, all sand on the ground cleaned, even the towels folded into different nice shapes everyday, swans etc! My daughter got once a dog made of towel in bed. Made our day! Location wise, it’s the main reason we booked the hotel and it topped our expectation! Truly beach side hotel with its own beach benches, shower, etc. we also had a beach view room, just fantastic to sleep with the wave sound and see the ocean when waking up! The hotel is 30-mins driving from Chania airport and with many good restaurants and small markets nearby. We walked to most of the good restaurants from the beach side, bare foot. Stalos is not as touristic and developed as the adjacent Platanias, but still very decent facility. With a car, Plananias is 7 mins away and Chania harbor is about 20 mins. We stayed one week and enjoyed our time so much! It is the first proper family vacation for our small family since my daughter was born, and it was just such a good start. No stress, everything relax! I highly recommend the place and will certainly return if we are going to Crete again in the future. Big thank you to the hotel family!!!!
Cons: Not much at all, if anything the WiFi is slightly slow in our room and on the beach for video downloading, but good in the courtyard. Maybe this is only for our room since it’s far to the beach side. All restaurants’ internet are not very fast, so it’s likely a region thing. Than again, off the phone on vacation is probably better~
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful location with great views to the sea, Close to shops, bus stop other beaches and city Chania who has a great view harbour full of tavernas and restaurants
Cons: The place was a bit damp ,probably was late season end October or to close to the sea.

Pros: I’ll start with saying how great the people were, the hotel is family owned and it really shows. They upgraded us to an apartment that had a kitchenette and a loft which was comfortable. The location is great and in the heart of Agia Marina. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach, bars, restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. It is an easy 20 minute bus ride into Chania. Giannis and his brother helped us with all of our needs including booking our excursions and answering any questions we had about Crete. We felt we got an excellent value for what we received.
Cons: We do not have many complaints. Most of our days were spent out an about or on some adventure. One of the only flaws was there was construction going on next to the property, but that should be completed by next vacation season.

Giorgi's Blue Apartments - Kalathas - Bedroom

9.5 Excellent (155 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in Chania, Giorgi's Blue Apartments is by the ocean, a 2-minute drive from Kalathas Beach and 6 minutes from Agios Onoufrios Beach. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, multilingual staff, and luggage storage.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Sophia and all the staff are super helpful and happy to help with advice for the area. Sophia gave us arrival advice, bike hire and sight seeing advice. Amazing sunsets with clean and comfortable room. Would highly recommend!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were wonderful. The apartments were compact but perfectly formed and my husband and I had a wonderful stay (as a same sex couple it is great to find a place that is welcoming). The secluded cove is stunning and swimming there was one of the highlights of the trip. The pool is immaculate with plenty of seating and the bar is well equipped and perfect for an evening drink after sunset. Breakfast was also delicious with plenty of selection to suit every one.
Cons: The setting of the apartments is beautiful, but it is a little out of town but still not too far from the nearest mini market and a 20min drive into Chania.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Giorgi’s Blue Apartments is a fabulous property situated on a quiet street and it looks out to the Aegean Sea! The private cove is fabulous. Sophia, who runs the place, is so nice and takes care of your every need.
Cons: Try to keep in mind it’s an apartment, so you may need items from a grocery store like paper towels, your own shampoo, etc.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location and views were stunning Staff lovely
Cons: Loved everything
8.3 Excellent
Pros: I loved my stay at Giorgi's. The room was spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The staff could not have been more friendly, welcoming, helpful and professional. I really like the private cove at the rear, leading down to the sea.
Cons: The location is a little remote, which was no problem to me. The proximity to the military airfield means that there are a few VERY loud jets passing over (though not early or late) and this might bother some people, though it was not an issue for me.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: - big apartments - nice beach zone - beautiful building - beautiful sea view
Cons: - difficult to travel without car, because of the seldom bus.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic staff. Immaculately clean. Gorgeous views. Serene location. Great restaurants and beaches nearby. Best yogurt of my trip! Don’t miss the fun waves at nearby Kalathas Beach and the stunning views from the calm waters at Stavros Beach, just a bit further up the road.
Cons: I was hoping to swim in the ocean cove but I didn’t feel it would be safe, as the water is deep and not especially calm along the rocky coast. Fine for a dip or for more adventurous types, though. Breakfast options were limited. Eggs, meat, basic bread, dry cereal, olives, cheese. Great freshly squeezed oj and yogurt. I don’t eat meat or eggs so would have preferred varied types of hearty bread, a fresh fruit or two, and perhaps some fresh pastry. Restaurants and beaches are not really walking distance. But five minutes in the car will get you there.

7.9 Good
Pros: The wine-tasting on 16 October was a really good experience.
Cons: We were not informed in advance that facilities in the hotel will be closed before the end of our stay. The price for the room was not reduced during the time with limited hotel services available. The check-in and check-out are to be improved if the hotel wants to stand for it's 5 stars. The beach can be improved in terms of access to the sea without all the rocks and wooden peaces. There was only welcome coffee capsules and water bottle and for 5 stars and the price (160 Eur/night) we were expecting to have them for every day of the stay.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderfully run hotel. Incredible level of hospitality.
Cons: Slightly noisy near the main road.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything! This is our second time staying at Minoa and we loved it just as much as the first time... From the breakfast to the beach to all the staff... It is all wonderful and cannot be faulted. We hope to return again one day.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It had everything we needed and the staff were all super friendly! It was also close to the highway which was ideal for day trips.
Cons: There was not many things that we did not like about the hotel. However when we went for a couples massage, the quality was extremely varied and definitely not worth 80 euros per person.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Highly recommended. Can not fault it. Definitely worth the money. Staff were great. Room was extremely comfortable. Facilities superb!
Cons: Nothing. It’s a great place to stay in Crete.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Convenient location with many restaurants, shops, bars and super markets around. Breakfast is ok.
Cons: Dinner is only served from 7pm - same for all three restaurants inside hotel. Gym closes at 19:30, after which you need to go to the reception to get authorisation and sign a paper. It’s quite scary while using the gym after it closes because it locates almost at the end corner of the resort - not very pleasant an experience. View from the beach has nothing special. What is WORST is that bathroom shampoo/body wash/soap are NOT refilled at all for 3 days!! We have to ring up the reception to request for it!! And thank goodness it was provided on the 4th (and last) night of our stay.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The place was great - just as I expected. The owner is really nice and the location is right on the beach.

Restaurant lovely and quaint and very “Mamma Mia”, with good selection of very tasty food. Good size studio with comfortable beds and nice balcony with furniture.
Cons: One thing I didn’t like and it was a bit of a big problem for us - a small shower tray with an old-fashioned shower curtain which constantly wrapped around your body whilst showering. Failed to see why it was so small as a large bathroom. Only thing which saved our sanity was using the basement shower (large open shower) which was for clients with a late flight after check-out.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a tasty Studio facing the sea and loved the Tavernen. The food was very good and the staff was very attentive- parking was limited but we were lucky. It is on the quiet part of the street. We came late from the airport and for us it was perfect. We did not cook but made breakfast ourself. We saw more luxurious places on the beach but still think the package Sonia with the pool/ the taverna/ tasty greek Charme / right on the Beach/staff is perfect for a relaxing holiday.

The room was basic but very adequate and most importantly very very clean. Beds were very comfortable and fresh towels and linen was supplied regularly. The most endearing quality was the personality of the staff. We now consider them friends and will be visiting them in future. There was a weekly Greek night also that was so much fun and not to be missed.
Cons: We did not find anything we did not like. The car parking facility could have been better, but then not all tourists have cars. The Bar area could be bigger, would have made the Greek dancing a bit easier but understand there is limited space around the pool.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I was on a vacation with my husband 11 days. We booked economy room but Maria gave us a better room by the same price. Very good location, the sea is near and a lot of markets and restaurants. Very kind personal, Maria helped us with booking a car and was always opened for our questions. Highly recommend this place! :)

9.6 Excellent
Pros: We arrived at the property to be welcomed by a lovely lady on reception. She told us all about the rooms and the times of breakfast and what was available at the studios. The room was perfect and very clean. The cleaners came in every day and changed sheets and gave us fresh towels. We were even given some wine to enjoy. Everything was close to hand with shops and beach just down the road. The pool area is lovely and never too busy. When leaving, a car was booked for us and we said our goodbyes. The cost of staying there for 7 days was so reasonable. I am looking forward to returning next holiday. I would highly recommend spending some time at Apollon Studios.

Pros: Close to the beach, with great restaurants in walking distance. Very nice staff. They even set up breakfast for us when we needed to leave at 4am in our last day. Really great value for money. Highly recommended!

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Executive suite was very comfortable and spotlessly clean.
Cons: It rained during our stay and the covers on the sunbeds were left out and couldn’t be used as they were wet! Minor point but you’d think they would have been moved under cover when it rained.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location with a seaview. Very good breakfast.
7.7 Good
Pros: Beautiful pool & outdoor space , extensive breakfast, very nice view of the water. Very clean. Nice staff.
Cons: Rooms were a bit dated in decor & instead of one large bed for two people it was two smaller beds right next to each other. Not my favorite, but it's pretty common in Europe.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great value for money
Cons: Great for families
9.3 Excellent
Pros: This hotel was amazing. The view from the pool chair was luxurious. The food and beverages were mouth watering. The staff was fun, friendly and professional. The hotel itself is one of the nicest I've stayed in.
Cons: When they describe a "couch bed" they really just mean you are sleeping on the couch, it is in no way a bed. The town and surroundings are a bit run down but the beach is nice.
8.2 Excellent
Pros: Buffet breakfast was awesome
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff was incredibly friendly and the breakfast buffet was just perfect :) Everything about the hotel- location, rooms, garden, restaurant and pool area, services - was very well planned and managed. Thoughtful, professional and extremely friendly staff - beyond our expectations.

Cons: Nothing
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Loved this location and facilities. Spacious hotel, clean and comfortable. Great staff so helpful and friendly. Pool and beach area amazing so too was breakfast. I'd stay there again.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Thalassa Beach Resort is beautiful and very clean. The location is excellent, staff are very helpful. For tours of the surrounding area, call a Taxi, they are quite cheap, have great knowledge and will take you wherever you want to go, and wait whilst you enjoy sight seeing. Many restaurants and shops are located just outside the resort, if you prefer to just relax, the beach is at the back of the resort, swimming pool with swim up bar, and spa. Everything you need is right there. Beds are very comfortable, rooms clean with all comforts of home and the house keeping go out of their way to help you, and its a family owned resort providing personal service and keeping the money in Greece where its needed. Thank you Thalassa, we loved our stay with you, and we will be back.
Cons: There was nothing I didn't like, I would prefer to see a larger selection of food at the Pool Bar, as the Restaurant requires a booking and has dress code for evening, after a long day sight seeing, its much easier to eat casually at the pool bar.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very well designed hotel, in that you only ever had to move one floor to access everything. Staff were exceptionally friendly.
Cons: Nothing
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel has a lovely feeling of calm. I think that's due to it being adults only. Professional staff. Great being right on the beach.
Cons: The area is very touristic. It looks very busy when you first arrive. We had a junior seaview suite. Great bed on the mezzanine but the loo is down the stairs.

7.9 Good
Pros: The wine-tasting on 16 October was a really good experience.
Cons: We were not informed in advance that facilities in the hotel will be closed before the end of our stay. The price for the room was not reduced during the time with limited hotel services available. The check-in and check-out are to be improved if the hotel wants to stand for it's 5 stars. The beach can be improved in terms of access to the sea without all the rocks and wooden peaces. There was only welcome coffee capsules and water bottle and for 5 stars and the price (160 Eur/night) we were expecting to have them for every day of the stay.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderfully run hotel. Incredible level of hospitality.
Cons: Slightly noisy near the main road.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything! This is our second time staying at Minoa and we loved it just as much as the first time... From the breakfast to the beach to all the staff... It is all wonderful and cannot be faulted. We hope to return again one day.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It had everything we needed and the staff were all super friendly! It was also close to the highway which was ideal for day trips.
Cons: There was not many things that we did not like about the hotel. However when we went for a couples massage, the quality was extremely varied and definitely not worth 80 euros per person.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing food, very helpful staff
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Highly recommended. Can not fault it. Definitely worth the money. Staff were great. Room was extremely comfortable. Facilities superb!
Cons: Nothing. It’s a great place to stay in Crete.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Convenient location with many restaurants, shops, bars and super markets around. Breakfast is ok.
Cons: Dinner is only served from 7pm - same for all three restaurants inside hotel. Gym closes at 19:30, after which you need to go to the reception to get authorisation and sign a paper. It’s quite scary while using the gym after it closes because it locates almost at the end corner of the resort - not very pleasant an experience. View from the beach has nothing special. What is WORST is that bathroom shampoo/body wash/soap are NOT refilled at all for 3 days!! We have to ring up the reception to request for it!! And thank goodness it was provided on the 4th (and last) night of our stay.

Pros: all staff amazing and friendly, going out of their way, a special shout out to elaine the restaurant manager and lovely receptionists! room out of this world (stayed in split level apt). there was no bar in the evening, the restaurant turned into a bar - which closed at 10.45, the restaurant food was lovely, it changed every night, the pool snack bars food was only average.
Cons: no bar to chill out in the evenings, the snack bar was limited for food
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was nothing short of fabulous. You can tell that the people there work hard and care about what they do. They helped us arrange a taxi to pick us up from the airport and extended a very warm welcome when we arrived. The property is exceptionally clean! The rooms are very spacious and have probably the best air conditioning units I've ever used in a hotel (very important in the summer). Meals were offered at set times and offered a range of dishes. The quality of the food was fantastic. We were always trying something new at mealtimes. Our last night there they had live music! The property is maybe a ten minute walk to the closest beach, making it super accessible. It's also very close to the bus stop that takes you to the city of Chania. WELL WORTH the price for this all inclusive hotel. I miss it already!!!
Cons: Quality of the drinks could have been better, but considering it's a three star hotel, I'd say it's about on par. Other than that, the entire stay was wonderful.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Food and personal. Nice apartment.
Cons: I booked two nights. After check-in we needed to pay immediately. We go to our room and we saw too many children in the hotel. Hotel is suitable for families not for couples. We wanted to rebook just for one night but manager said it is not possible. I was really pissed. Balcony from room was on side to the pool. Many children was there. No place for relax.
9.6 Excellent
