Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed as 3 families of 11. It’s run by and Anglo/Greek family. Very relaxed in a relatively quiet area. Pool is fantastic, 3m deep at one end and nice shallow child friendly area at the other. Got great views across the coast and the nearby island. The best part is the lack of fuss around sunbeds, you could get up at 11am and find beds for 3 families no problem. Rooms are spacious, clean and modern with some having great views over the coast. Air con is good, showers hot and powerful, kitchen facilities good. It’s 1.5 miles exactly to the beach, easy to walk down hill, bit of a march back up after a full day on the beach. Taxis are easy to get, 10 to Chania, 12 to Agia Marina and about 8 back from the beach. The food around the pool is nice, breakfasts are good and you can pretty much order what you want for breakfast. Drinks can be ordered around the pool. Lunch and early dinner available and nice. Overall a great two weeks for our 3 families. We also had Eagles soaring over head from the mountains.
Nearby is a Greek taverna which is good and a supermarket. Lots of restaurants and bigger supermarkets near the beach. I would recommend the beaches straight over the bottom road or to the right rather than the main one. Smaller enclosed area with nice sand and lots of sunbeds.

We will definitely return.

We had a wonderful 11 day family holiday here and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting to stay. Ideally you need a car to explore the area, however there are restaurants and shops within walking distance (about 1 mile away). The pool was a great size and there were plenty of loungers even in the height of summer. The villas had everything you needed to be self catering and our two bedroom apartment was very spacious. Lisa and her husband were so welcoming and regularly provided us with information about the area. Lisa also helped us sort a hire car and prepared some amazing breakfasts.

New Kydonia Suites is the most amazing place to stay when you visit Chania.
The perfect place for couples,families,group of friends or any other combination.
The owners Lisa,Dimitri and Vanessa are wonderful hosts.
The moment you enter the place you feel at home.
The views are amazing and the food is great.

We stayed at New Kydonia for the first time and the team were absolutely brilliant! They looked after us from the get go and everyone who stayed clearly got the same treatment- 5 star.

This isn’t a hotel with a standard breakfast and there isn’t a spa but New Kydonia is a fantastic stay away with everything you could need.

Lisa and everyone are so helpful, they really do have a great local network and made so great recommendations; from Monasteries to Lakes.

And the accommodation itself if lovely too - we stayed in a few places in Crete and this one certainly measures up!

We’d thoroughly recommend a stay here and wouldn’t hesitate to go back!

For more than 20 years this is the place were we relax and enjoy everything we wish for. Nice apartments, most of them with a nice view of the mountains, sea or garden. An excellent large pool for a swim and bar for a cold beer, refreshments or enjoy a cocktail during happy hour. Nice location away from the busy coastline but close enough to drive from there in five minutes to the beach or shops. Everything excellent but nothing beats the warm welcome of Lisa, Dimitri and Vanessa and staff that makes our stay every time the best on Crete!

We have spent a week in New Kydonia Studios in September. Owners are amazing: helpful, nice with good sense of humor :) They serve great prawn coctail. Pool is big, and the view from it is breathtaking. We recommend it from the bottom of our hearts ❤️❤️❤️

We have just returned from an excellent theme week at New Kydonia. Organised by owner LISA we tasted wines, had some excellent food, visited an olive oil manufacturer, did some cooking and sightseeing and generally had a most rewarding week in the company of 10 other people. LISA is an excellent organiser and her little complex of 23 properties very comfortable and well equipped. An excellent swimming pool with incredible views out over Chamia and the sea. Plenty of loungers, easy chairs and even a double bed to relax on. Just a five minute walk into the village where there is a supermarket and good taverna (evening only) and a bus service into Chainia with buses running late enough into the evening to suit most needs. If you miss the last bus, a taxi is a whole ten euros! If you don't want to self cater there's a restaurant on site which also offers breakfast. So pleased we went!

On the recommendation of friends who had been returning to New Kydonia for years and years we booked a 2 week holiday in a 2 bedroom suite for the 2nd half of August.
The accommodation was perfect for us, a good size with everything we needed. The complex itself was also perfect - small, friendly and intimate, with an amazing size swimming pool. The views were amazing.
Everyone there was so friendly - other residents aswell as Lisa and all the family. The restaurant was great - suiting fussy children as well as less fussy parents!
We really enjoyed Chania for a few evenings out away from the complex.
Car hire was easy to arrange - we only had one for a few days, but we were able to explore the island near and far. There is some wonderful scenery just minutes away.
We enjoyed it so much that for the first time ever we left saying that we could have stayed another week - so that's what we're doing this year!
We would highly recommend New Kydonia to anyone.
