Great hotel apartments right on the beach with excellent pool and pool bar. Rooms are big and cleaned daily and all the staff were very helpful and friendly! The breakfast was excellent with a daily selection of home made cakes and jams among many many other things. The hotel is literally right on the beach- the beach is slightly pebbly but it was very relaxing to spend time there. Alternatively if you want to travel around the island I would recommend hiring a car. Chania centre is about 30 minutes drive and there are some great beaches also within 40 minutes drive from the hotel. We really enjoyed our stay at Caretta beach hotel-couldn’t have asked for better !! Everything was super excellent and a particular thank you to Thea who really looked after us! Ps we traveled with a 9 months old baby and the hotel made sure we had everything we needed for the baby as well. Many thanks caretta beach- we will back again!

Nice little family hotel right next to the beach. The apartments are big and comfortable and have been cleaned daily. There is also a nice small pool whit a pool-bar. It is possible to book half pension and eat dinner in the "Horizon Seaview Restaurant" or to go to one of the restaurants in the neighbourhood. It is definitely the right place if you prefer peace and quiet to the bustle of tourists and like to relax. Thea and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed there with a group of families in Aug.2019. We had probably the best holiday in Greece. Everything was at its best: location right on the beach and quiet, rooms, restaurant, pool and especialy the staff. Thea and her staff made our stay unforgetable and helped with any need we had. If in Crete, look no further, this is the place to stay.

My friend and I stayed here for four nights. Its was fabulous find. Lovely location on a quite pebble beach shared with very few people and a few turtle nests. The hotel has a lovely pool and bar area which is very clean and well kept. The breakfast was great, and the menu for snacks and more hearty meals was very reasonable (as was the ice cold beer and local white wine). The staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Easily reached by bus from Chania airport, change in Chania.

Stayed for 2 weeks in this nice place. The staff was very helpful. Katharina cooks great food. Pool and beach is quiet and relaxing. Room was nice, master bed was perfect, the extra beds for kids was a little hard. Bathroom was small and the shower could have been better, but did it’s job. For the reasonable price and with a rental car, this was a perfect stay for us.

On arrival we were met at the pool bar by lovely Katarina . It was like meeting long lost family. She was warm, smiley and welcoming, as were all staff at ALL times. We were seated with complementary drinks and snacks and given time to relax after our journey.later we were taken to our room. We had a one bedroom apartment shared with our daughter. Plenty of space for the 3 of us. Table and chairs, hob and basic kitchen utensils etc. Beds were firm and comfy. Shower worked well. Room was cleaned daily and wonderfully. Outdoor furniture on small patio too. We ate at the hotel most evenings as Katarina makes delicious homemade Greek meals each night. Always followed by a small dessert and Raki. We also ate breakfast most mornings which was cooked and served by Thea and her staff. The hotel is on the beach which is also beautiful and clean and not busy like other resorts. The pool area is very clean and we always found a sunbed either at the pool or beach. Never a problem even in July. ALL staff were welcoming, helpful friendly and happy and work so hard to make your holiday special. I’m almost reluctant to review it as I’d like to keep it to ourselves as we loved it so very much. The staff made us feel so special and welcomed everyone with the same friendly manner. We were even lucky enough to see one of the protected sea turtles who accidentally came too far up the beach. So amazing! Can’t recommend and praise enough. Thank you Thea, Katarina, Ritza, Adonis,and Vasiliki and also housekeeping staff Vera and Marietta. You are AMAZING! And made our holiday really memorable. We will return Surrounding area has many bars and restaurants if you need to eat elsewhere and supermarkets for supplies. And the bus stop is a 5/10 min walk with the bus to Chania taking around 25/30 minutes

The staff at the hotel. Thea, Katerina, and their assistants made our stay awesome. Location is right on the beach. Easy to access from your room. Very quiet and relaxing. It's the place you want to go when you need to decompress from every day business. The room was comfortable. TV may be small for some but we did not turn it on once while we were there.
