    The location, pools, beach, the staff were all excellent. It is an amazing resort, all you could want. Great breakfast, excellent pool facilities, and great beach location.neasy bus to Chania.

    Nothing about the resort itself, however platanias has lost its sense of Greek culture. Caters for tourists only. Pizza, burgers etc. there is a bus that is cheap that takes you to Chania where the food is amazing

    Fabulous

    Friendly and helpful staff, view from our room in Imperial building (772). Imperial wing is close to the sea and beach and is very calm, great for relaxation.Nice and well kept beach area. Enough parking places - 2 parkings - underground and near Reception. Good coffee at Bars. Great massages in the SPA (perhaps, a bit overpriced). Minimarket on site. A couple of supermarkets nearby. Lots of great places to eat in the village (Kyano, Karma, Cosmos, Symposium). Tea making facilities in the room. Complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival. Great Wifi in whole Hotel. Nice idea with the bridge over the road.

    1. Awful breakfast - definitely not a 5 star hotel level, Main Restaurant seemed more like a school canteen (dark, smelly inside), breakfast at sea front restaurant better as for atmosphere (only it might be windy), but not for food. Seemed not fresh and so little choice as well as always lack of something, always was taking the last piece. Really disappointing. 2. Food at snack bars - sounds good in Menu, but tastes average (especially when good tavernas like Kyano are near). 3. Towel kiosk working time - from 10.00 -18.00. 4. Not enough towels in the room. 5. Toilet smell in pool bar near the beach. Could sit only on sofas on the grass not near the bar.

    Good

    Good location (15 min. drive to Chania), nice restaurants with a good food choice, nice beach ( a plus: is not allowed to reserve the sunbed & umbrella, so there were sunbeds all the time). The room although not so large is well fitted and clean.

    We have booked a room with sea view (Imperial Room with Sea View). At the arrival they gave us a room from which we can see a parking lot and a pool corner. After one hour of arguing, they gave us a room with sea view. Obviously, they tried to trick us. Their definition of "sea view" is quite odd: between the room and the sea there is a large pool, a restaurant and a bar and the beach with umbrellas. All you can see is just a tiny fraction of the sea. And the building is not high enough - just 2 floors. The mini bar is indeed mini: a coke, 2 beers, still water and a chocolate bar.

    Exclusive

    Flott rom (vi hadde billigste alternativet, med fjellutsikt, og den var vakker). Gode senger!! Gjennomført rene, pene og forseggjorte bygninger og faciliteter generelt. Mye marmor - følelse av luksus. Dette er et sted hvor man gjerne kan ha en romantisk tur for 2, men passer også for barnefamilien. Opplegg for barna på dagtid (miniclub) hvor man kan komme og gå ettersom man er interessert i det som skjer der eller ei. Flott bassengområde (størst på den eldste delen av hotellet, som ikke ligger rett ved stranda, men på andre siden av veien). Kort vei til stranda. Super frokost-buffet, ferskpresset juice, deilig kaffe!

    Platanias by er veldig turist-preget. Det fins også mange strender på Kreta som er finere enn stranden her. Men dersom du liker Platanias, så er dette hotellet et godt valg.

    La situation géographique en bordure de plage, ses chambres avec piscine privée. La proximité de la station balnéaire Platanias ce qui permet de sortir de l hôtel pour dîner dans de petites tavernes ds la vieille ville. Hania n étant qu à une demie heure est aussi un avantage !
