“Nice place for a quiet holiday”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

If you want a quiet holiday this hotel is a perfect place to stay. The hotel is situated in a nice garden close to the beach. There is a nice taverna with good food and service. There is not much to do in the area, some supermarkeds and a handful tavernas. If you like to read under the trees in the garden and do not care about sunbeds on the beach, this hotel will be a good choice. You can buy acces to internet, but much of the time it does not work. But who needs internet on a holiday? You only get clean towels once during your stay, but the supermarkeds is selling cheep beachtowels if you want to change more often. This is a hotel for people who like to relax and do not care much about luxery.

Room Tip: On very warm days room 204 can be recommended

A great and quiet place to stay at. We were very satisfied with the hotel staff and the rooms. It is renovated and the best of this hotel was the pool bar, the restaurant and the great view to the beach and the mountains. We have experienced a restaurant with top service, top menu and cleanliness as first priority. Everyone who wants to have quiet holidays near the sea, this is definitely the place. Will be back next year.

The 2 rooms apartment was really good for 3 persons. The room was very simple. The best part with our one week stay at this hotel was definitely the pool area. Lot of sunbeds, easy to get a sunny or a place in the shadow. The pool was also good, perfect area for the small kids with a fence between the deeper parts.

The hotel is situated about 400m from Gerani town. It have a quiet location close to the beach with a very nice garden close to the pool and the beach. The poolbar is open from early til late. We had a two room flat (306) with a small balcony. The room was perfect for the four of us. The beds could have been softer, but it wasn't a big problem. The closest supermarket was 100m away and there you could by fresh bread in the morning. In Gerani townsenter you can find several nice tavernas and Fazakerleys bar run by Gina and Paul. Highly recomended!
They clean the room 6days a week and the staff is very nice. Sinc Lito is close to Gerani town you can easely catch a bus to get around. Crete is a beatiful island. Enjoy your holliday!

General i was very satisfied with the hotel management and the rooms. It is renovated and the best of this hotel was the pool bar and the view to the beach. I would suggesting to everyone who wants to have quiet holidays near the sea.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms at the 3rd floor with excellent view to the sea!

This is a very nice hotel (see the photos), good location, a minute or two from supermarkets and with rural surroundings on the other side (including a sheep farm nearby). Friendly staff, nice pool and a very good informal restaurant with many good choices from the menu (try the shrimp saganaki), and they even cater to people who suffer from gluten allergy (a variety of gluten-free pasta and pizza dishes - something very rare in Greece). The beach is sandy near the hotel, but pebbles dominate at the waterfront. Some good restaurants in the area - Vatsalos (about 500 m in the direction of Platanias), To Steki (about 500 m inland in Gerani town, and two good choices after the same distance towards west - Small Paradise and Bossanova Beer Bar Restaurant (the latter with a fantastic atmosphere and great food)

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, especially in the restaurant. Perfectly located just outside of the big noisy tourist strip in Platanias, and directly at the pebble beach, which is nice for swimming and snorkling. Water gets deep quickly, so not for kids to be left alone.
One Warning: Room 115 is a family apartment with 2 bed rooms. We paid the same as everybody else in same-size apartments in the hotel, but this one is facing the street with traffic. Although slow traffic, it's there, noisy, early and late. 1-2 other smaller rooms have the same problem. Avoid those rooms, and you'll have a great stay unless you want to be in the middle of the crowd or in huge places with huge pools and tons of people. Had we not complained and moved to another room, rating would have been below average.
