My friend and I (both females in 30s) booked a trip last minute and wanted to stay somewhere close to the airport but still with character and with all the expected amenities close by - this hotel was perfect!
Situated 30 minutes from Chania airport, Platanias is a strip of beach side hotels on a main road lined with shops, restaurants and bars. We didn't mind we went out of season as things we quiter but can imagine it is very lively in the summer.
The hotel is in the best location with everything within walking distance but also has a small mini market on site. Only down side was the beach is a bit stoney but quite close by are sandy stretches.
The room was great for us, no view but we didn't expect one, twin beds with everything you need, fridge, safe, hair drier, balcony. It was incredibly clean too!
More than enough pools there are at least 5, we spent all of our time at the adults only pool because it was quieter and was in the sun all day.
Lots of people were there all inclusive, we just went bed and breakfast which was perfect, breakfast was a good buffet.
The spa is one of the best I've been to, again very well looked after and spotless. I had a great massage as well - thanks Harris!
We did not go expecting to spend all our time at the resort but they do have activities during the day and there are things to do outside (snorkelling trips etc).
Everyone we spoke to were friendly and helpful so if you want a stress free stay this is a great place to go.
