Nice hotel , great location

The hotel staff are friendly and efficient, the grounds and rooms are very well kept. You'll need a car as the hotel is 3 km from the main town, there are tavernas and a few shops within walking distance and lake kournas is a pleasant walk of about 3 km. Breakfast is continental and offers a small but reasonable choice. the pool area is nice with plenty of sunbeds. There is a bar patio area with good service. Wifi is available but only in the area around the main reception. overall a very pleasant stay and very good value.

Vardis Olive Garden - good base near Chania

Convenient for main road and trips round the island. Quiet, calm, thoughtfully designed, in middle of olive grove and gardens.Set back a little from the coast and so avoiding some of the straggly development you tend to get. Spacious studio with good size balcony. Comfortable firm bed. Very pleasant staff. Good breakfast and supper buffet. All other guests when we were there were Dutch or German: UK visitors are missing something here! The only thing I didn't like (personal taste and I know everywhere does it) was music in reception and restaurant, but it was not very intrusive. We're a middle aged couple and I think this hotel would best suit those who want peaceful holidays and those with young children. Would happily go again.

Unterkunft in ruhiger Umgebung

Gute Ausgangsbasis für Ausflüge zwischen Iraklio, Rethymno und Chania. Kein Halli-Galli, eher was für das mittlere Alterssegment. Hoher Anteil deutscher Touristen. Der nette Touristenort Georgioupoli ist mit dem Auto in 10 Minuten zu erreichen; Strände auch zu Fuß (Luftlinie 1 km), für die schöneren (= leereren) Strände ist allerdings auch ein Auto hilfreich, einen Bus an der Hauptstraße (E75) gibt es aber auch.
