We traveled to Crete, with Monarch, and had booked into the Galeana Apartments in Platanias on the eastern side of Rethymnon.
it was a hectic one hour drive to the premises from Rethymnon Airport in our hire car, The Old road runs parallel to the main motorway on the north coast of Crete, It was pleasantly situated on the beach side of the Old road with enough parking outside for 6 cars. (plenty of free parking nearby).
The complex consists of 48 apartments in total , 3 three rooms, 18 two room and 26 1 bedroom aparments.
Ours was an adequate sized 1 room one, It had twin beds, a loo and a SMALL shower, a kitchen area with 2 hot plates and an eating area with table and two chairs. Fitted wardrobe basic other furniture and AIR Conditioning.
The whole complex is painted in a typical Greek style of Blue and White. It was basic and charming.It was well located for the tourist sites. The apartments are used by Monarch/Cosmos from the U.K. and our nieghbours were Germans and Russians.
Two pools a beach bar and a covered dining area for our continental breakfast. 50 yards to the beach with a Floriferous planted avenue down the centre Very helpful staff, Maid service Daily. clean linen every 4 days, Great.!!
Plenty of supermarkets and places to eat. We had one shower in a 2 week stay. Would recommend it to anybody whom is used to the Greek style of living
