No weather data found for [, ”Crete”, ”Crete”, horizontal]
Contemporary, centrally-located property which lacks any traditional Greek character or atmosphere. Picturesque outlook includes a beach in front and a pretty harbour. Even though it is a 5-star hotel some extras are chargeable, including the sunbeds on the beach and indoor pool.
Interior areas are well-presented but lack the sophisticated touches expected of a 5-star with only a little greenery in the grounds.
Suits middle-aged and younger couples with some families.
Overlooking the sea in Platanias, 10 km from Chania. Main resort road has a wide choice of restaurants, shops, bars, cafes and some nightclubs.
