“Wow - we come back!”
Reviewed 26 August 2011

We stayed just 2 nights at Ammos Hotel and regreted that our holiday was over then.

This is THE FAMILY HOTEL. Individual service and beautiful staff. This is the ideal hotel for young families that do not want mass tourism and super clubs.

The hotel is located straight at Glaros Beach. The rooms are nice and functional. No unneccessary luxury, just all you need. Small pool but yet large enough to spend a lot of time in it. You just bnbeed about 15 minutes downtown (except in the evening) to Chania.

The beach is nice. Pool and beachservice operated by the hotel - great!

we will come back sooin and stay longer!

I was at Ammos for a week last July with my family and was really impressed with the quality of service and the kindness of Nikos and his team. Always smiling and ready to advise you on nice places or restaurants to go they really make an effort to ensure that you enjoy your stay. The result is that after few days you feel like home and don't want to leave! The rooms are clean and confortable and the restaurant is good with a fantastic sunset view. Ammos is particularly good for children, especially toddlers; there are a lot of toys available for children around the pools and also a room specifically conceived for them where they organize ateliers and games. A great place to be in Western Crete. We can't wait to go back!

Just recently returned from an extremely relaxing and hugely enjoyable family holiday at Ammos.

The Hotel is stylish, the rooms are comfortable and everywhere is spotlessly clean.

The pool, beach and restaurant are all within a few steps of each other and never seem to get too busy. You can get up late, enjoy a stunning Greek breakfast then saunter down to the pool or beach in your own time and at your own pace.

The outdoor restaurant overlooks the sea and provides fantastic views as the sun sets. The menu has a wide range of Greek dishes with different specials every day.

The best thing about Ammos though is the people who work there. Relaxed, friendly and extremely professional, they all take huge pride in what they do and genuinely seem to care about the welfare of their guests.

This was apparent when we first arrived - we were greeted late in the evening by people who were waiting for us to arrive and seemed genuinely happy to see us. This was a theme that continued throughout our stay.

Ammos is a rare and welcome combination - a boutique hotel for families. This was the big attraction for us and Ammos completely delivered on that promise.

I cannot praise this Hotel enough and it's attitude to it's customers puts many others to shame. An amazing place and a wonderful holiday. Believe the reviews! This place is a gem.

This gem of a hotel was a total surprise - exceeding our every expectation and we can't recommend it highly enough..
The owner, Nikos, and his similarly proficiet team, are exceedingly well organized and attentive. The taxis were on strike in Crete for our entire stay - you would never know - a private airport transfer was organized too and from the airport (not so easy drawing upon contacts for a 4o room hotel!).
Our room faced the ocean and overlooked the pool - although not large in size, was very stylish and well equipped: top class toiletries, twice-daily towel change, fresh fruit every day ...and a fully equipped kitchenette including coffee-press.
The restaurant food was the best we experienced in our 2 week trip to Greece and easily the best value.
Ammos organized a private island tour for us one day - highlights included the superb guide (Rea), a trip to a well-know Crete ceramic artist, driving through the gorges to the south coast (standing-sands bay with beautiful sea etc) and a tour of Reythmeon - great day.
Even though we were without kids and there were many, many families - we have to say that it never felt unpleasantly out of control in terms of kid-noise!
The beach was very nice (although quite a few locals at the weekends), the water clear and the loungers comfortable (and religiously retained for guest use only).
We were able to use the gym in the Grecotel next door for 10 euros each - it was quite well equipped and generally not very busy.
Above all, it is the resort staff that make this place special - they are knowledgeable, efficient, authentic and genuinely pleased to have you as a guest. Go there!

Ammos is a great hotel on the beach on the outskits of Chania. The owner Nikos was very helpful in planning our time in Crete before our trip. The hotel is modern, clean, affordable and right on the beach. I highly recommend Ammos Hotel and the staff is amazing.

I had read a load of reviews before arriving and felt confident that I had made a great choice. Nasia, Elena, Nikos, Dimitra, Penelope and the wonderful others who make this stylish hotel a special place - Thank You! Even serving us coffee and our favourite 'orange' cake at 2am when we left to catch a very early flight back to Oslo. A very professionaly and efficiently run hotel with an informal, friendly atmosphere ensued that we returned home perfectly relaxed!

Our family found the Ammos Hotel on TripAdvisor and were very fortunate. Nikos and his staff communicated with us before our arrival to ensure an easy transfer, helped us arrange an excursion to the Samaria Gorge, and organized transportation to our next destination eliminating all of the taxi strike inconvenience. The food was great, the room accommodated our family (2 adults and son age 10) very well, and the decor was upbeat and fun. Wish we didn't have to travel so far to return, or we'd be back very soon.

Room Tip: Advise the staff of your needs when reserving and you will be accommodated.
