Summer Lodge Maleme Crete 25/6 to 2/7 2019
Excellent budget hotel with good sized pool,very clean with very pleasant and helpful staff,Vassilis & family couldn't do enough for you.Plenty of positives here with negatives being very patchy WI FI reception,also room we stayed in no ground level socket for kettle not practical,also no cutlery or crockery provided which is very surprising as this is primarily a self catering accommodation.That said,would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others, other point a good 500M to main resort area.

Mysigt familjeägt hotell.
Trevlig familj som äger och sköter hotellet. Mysigt. Charmigt. Stranden nära men EJ sol å badvänlig. Bussar går ofta in mot Platanias och Chania. Beroende av bussen. Dålig städning, en gång på en vecka. Annars toppen. Prisvärt!! Lugnt å skönt. Området heter Pirgos å ligger utf själva centrala Platanias m alla dess restauranger å bad.

Sängarna var väldigt hårda och det är väldigt lyhört så man hör biltrafiken väldigt bra då det ligger brevid en stor väg.

Buon albergo, prezzi modici, evitate la colazione
Bell'albergo dotato di piscina. Impresa familiare, tutti gentilissimi specialmente la signora Athena, prodiga di consigli anche su dove andare a mangiare ( consigliata la Black Lanter a 300m, ottimo cibo) Manca il condizionatore ( viè un ventilatore tipo quelli da tavolo fissato alla parete). Camera ampia, letti abbastanza comodi, frigorifero. Bagno un po' piccolo se confrontato con la camera e lavandino piccolino. Colazione a parte costo 4 euro per qualche fetta di pane, un po' di marmellata ed un caffè filtrato all'americana che per un italiano equivale a sciacquatura di piatti, semplicemente imbevibile. Evitatela Tutto sommato un esperienza positiva visto il prezzo. PS: il luogo è un po' isolato, se non avete l'auto non so se vi è lì vicino una fermata dei mezzi pubblici.

Lugn och ro i Maleme, Kreta
Ett litet trevligt familjedrivet hotell som ligger längs med huvudgatan.5 min till lång lugn strand. Ägaren trevlig och hjälpsam. Frukost erbjuds. Ej daglig städning. Mindre pool fanns och var helt OK. Gav tips och information om resmålet. Talar en del svenska. Även byn var lugn med några affärer och restauranger. Bankautomat finns vid stormarknad 5 min bort.
