This hotel rises far above its peers. A totally impressive first impression with Alexandro upon meeting us with his buggy to collect the luggage, to the passionate detailed introduction by Margerita (a 7th generation Delfino). Upon entry there was a pebbled courtyard and huge ficus tree and cactus. The guided tour led us to our room, which was on two levels, spacious and boasted a wonderful terrace to view the promenade of Chania. Our room boasted marble floors, a super king bed, gorgeous split bathroom and the spectacular starry night lights in the ceiling on one level. The lower was sofas and yet another smaller vanity area.
Also outlined by margarita were recommendations of eating places, tours (Natours - a high recommendation for tailor made tours), beaches and shops not only of Chania but nearby Rethymnon. All her recommendations we followed and were completely overwhelmed by the high quality of food and ambience of the eateries. Prime positioned tables were reserved by the hotel for us.
Breakfast was served daily in the courtyard - a major highlight not to be missed- with a large variety of home made treats. I loved her mother's yoghurt dish with crushed granola and biscuit base with strawberry jam - a must have!
All the staff were attentive and it was obvious that they were united in their mission and commitment to serve their clientele. A memorable four nights that I wish others could replicate!More
