perfect quiet location on the beach without being far from any amenities. The pool was amazing ample sunbeds very well mannered staff, bedroom was spacious enough for two persons excellant patio with wicker furniture and spectacular garden veiw. Food was well cooked and well presented grounds were clean and regularly maintained. the only downside was in the bathroom there was not any shampoo/showergel and only 2xsmall cakes of soap(not enough for 4 star hotel) All in all fantastic hotel will gladly reccommend.

We had a wonderful stay at the Amalthia Hotel, for 4 nights while attending a wedding in Chania.Service at the hotel was very helpful. Rooms were clean, well appointed, and comfortable, although the bed was a bit firm for our tastes (not unusual in Greece). Location is excellent, with a 20 minute or so cab ride to Chania, but on the beach for sunning and swimming. The restaurant is excellent, very tasty food. Delicious food. Breakfast buffet, included, was standard, but good. Pool is very nice, but would be better if it was open later than 7pm. Beach chairs are 8 Euro per day for 2, reasonable for a guaranteed lounge chair at the beach all day. I would return to this hotel for a visit without hesitation.

Room Tip: We had a garden room, and it was fine. We prefer to spend money on other things rather than the vie...

Perfect location and quiet, relaxing time spent in this gracious and friendly hotel right on the beach. Great for sunning and swimming in the sea or pool (amazing weather too) but also only a bus or taxi ride from the center of Chania. Service was there when you needed it but otherwise understated. Food was amazingly simple, fresh and well prepared. Rooms and grounds were renovated and well maintained. There was plenty of space to chill and decompress. Great safe haven for family and excellent value.

Room Tip: Suite overlooking the pool allowed kids extra swim time

My husband and I just returned from our vacation in Crete. We stayed in Amalthia in a garden view room. The hotel is what we expected from the reviews and pictures posted on the hotel website.
The room is quite big with a double bed, coach, desk, baggage place and still you have lot of space to move around. The closet was a little small (we don'u usually carry too many clothes but we had difficulties in arranging them).
The bathroom - just like in the pics. With bathtub, pretty big, space to move around.
The balcony was really nice with a support to dry the towels.
Everything was clean, we had the beds changed once and the towels every day.
As it was said in the past reviews: take shower gel as the hotel only gives 2 small soaps, the TV is very small but hey who watches TV on vacation.
Chania town is about 15 minutes by bus on normal traffic and one hour (yep, we spent one hour in the bus) with traffic jam.
Breakfast was ok (not amazing).
Overall it was a very good experience. The hotel is very good, clean, in a crowded area of Agia Marina, ppl are friendly and polite. If you go to Crete and choose this hotel, I'm sure you will not regret. But don't stay too much in the hotel: go to Chania, Elafonissi, Gramavousa, Samaria and if you feel like driving for 100 km to Heraklion. There are lots of things to see in Crete.

The Hotel standard is generally very high. This is characterized primarily by a good service, friendly staff and that the hotel is located close to the beach with its own pool and restaurant. What can be developed to raise standards further is mainly to increase the strength of the WiFi so that guests can use the internet even in hotel rooms, but also to provide small bottles of shampoo in the room and towels to use at the beach (maybe to the guests that stay in Junior Suites).
We can recommend this hotel to families with or without children.
