This hotel was ok. Quite basic actually but for the price we payed I think it was good enough. The food in restaurant was very good. We didn't have breakfast there but lunch was always fabulous!

The staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms were quite large. Bathroom however was tiny. Cleaninglady didn't visit every day and towels and sheets were changed only once during the week. The rooms were very cold and humid - of course that was partly because our early visit (off-season, really).

The beaches were sad sight because the off-season. They were not cleaned yet. Also most of the restaurants, cafes and shops were still closed.

The locations felt quite bad. We were told there are buses going by every 15 minutes to Chania and surroundings. What the quide didn't tell us was that most of the buses don't stop in front of the hotel. So usually we had to waite for our bus 30-45 minutes.

Chania is beautiful town - really worth to visit. It took about 30 minutes by bus there.

Really Thank you for the review.
As far as i can see the most of the problems you had are because of your really early visitting & the bad weather.
Also the cleaning lady & the towels change, are part of the contract you had with the tour opperator you used, to come to our hotel, so you had to know about it before your arrival.
Really thank you & hope to visit us again..

I suggest this hotel for anyone. Good location, very friendly staff and very clean rooms. Also the pool is large and has clean water. You can find many sandy beaches nearby.

We visit this Hotel last summer with my friends... It was a very nice and clean hotel, with a large and clean swimming pool and large rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful to our questions. Near by you will find many sandy beaches and on a small distance clubs, cafes, restaurants and more amenities... I suggest this hotel to anyone!

We had a great holiday experience at Porto Kalamaki in the end of August 2011. The hotel is fresh and clean, has a nice pool area that is suitable for children, very friendly stuff and excellent food both for lunches as well as dinners.
The location fitted us good even thought is not in the central of any major village. The buses to Chania and Platanias are passing right outside the hotel and a great sandy beach is only a couple of minutes away.
We can highly recommend this hotel and will surly return again soon! :)

I had a special offer for this hotel from Finland. Therefore, chose this hotel. It was May, and the water in the pool was still too cold for myself. There are some beaches in walking distance. The restaurants are very few in this area. However, buses to Chania go just across the hotel. The hotel was just relevant to my needs - with a reasonable offer. The small bar by the pool is ok.
