Having worked for nearly a year in Crete, I came across the Alkion Hotel near Chania, Crete.
I have stayed in many hotels across Europe and Crete, but simply found the Alkion to best the best.
This hotel is run by a local Greek family, Manolis and Stella being the main contacts.
Small and friendly with a perfect Greek atmosphere. The rooms are comfortable.
One or twice a week the hosts have a poolside BBQ, using all home made local delights. Including local fresh meat for the BBQ.
There is an inside and poolside bar, perfect for lounging in the hot Grecian sun. The sea is a 2 minute walk.
The hotel is perfectly situated off the main small road into Chaina and Platanias.
Hosts of the Alkion provide the perfect atmosphere, mum, dad, son, daughter and sister in law run the business.
Simply one of the best little hotels you will find.
