Perfect Hotel for Clubbers
Checked in at midnight into a nice suite - until the aircon leaked water all over the bed. Front desk moved us into a room on the main road - about 200 meters from a club that rocked until 6:00am. If you are on the exterior of the property plan your day (and night) accordingly - probably won't be getting much sleep.

Beach Vacation
We came to Chania and Platanias as the first leg on our honeymoon and I wanted to stay somewhere pretty fancy. This hotel had a 5 star rating and beautiful pictures. And overall, it lived up the booking. The rooms were very clean, the pools and beach were gorgeous, and the food was amazing. Overall we were very happy. Couple things to note, we went in late May and the Mediterranean was still a little too cold to swim in comfortably. Also the indoor pool in the booking is actually part of the spa and is not available unless you pay extra. My only final complaint and bit of advice is that you return your beach towels a day early. We waited until the night before we left and the towel office was closed and we ended up losing our deposit. Not a huge deal but a little unexpected. Overall still a great stay at the beach.

Ok hotel - for 3 stars!
to be honest I expected a little more for 5 star rating - genuinely in my eyes this is a 3 to a 3.5 star max. Especially when you have to pay extra for everything - including a safe!! The distance from the airport etc should have been made a little more obvious - its not that easy to get to. In my view, it was expensive for what it was. Please be aware that you even have to pay for the beds on the beach every single day you go. Towels you have also hire out. We paid a 2000 for 7 days and I feel it wasn't worth that much. Also the pool - not enough beds as people take them early. Noise - room 101 - at 8 am every morning - lots and lot of noise from the kitchen below.
