Beautiful and pleasant

Posted Jul 20, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel was nice and clean. The service was warm and welcoming. The location is about 20 min from Chanias's Old Town, a bit challenging specially if driving at night. Overall very pleasant.

great place to. relax with family and friends

Posted Aug 2, 2016 on Hotels
we just returned today form the hotel, important notes, the hotel owners has changed so all the older reviews are not relevant special thous about the chef who cooks meals per request in summary the place was just what we were looking for, quite clean and good location, the place is located 20 minutes from the airport on a small cliff over view on chania Bay, you can go down for snorkeling and fishing or to go down 100 meters to the nice beach not crowded and small snacks bar, there is a good size pool with beds around and bar for drinks and small snacks and basic meals. the rooms are clean and big with basic kitchen but missing basic stuff like salt sugar coffe or dishes soap (which the cleaner doesn't clean) also no shampoo and soap. no towels for the pool. to my opinion you must have a car as if you like descent meal you have to drive 5minutes to sunset restrunt or the tressea traven which both very recommended. I am sure you will enjoy the place.

Pros: It was very peaceful with beautiful gardens and a short stroll to a pretty small beach cove.
Location: There is a small beach 5 mins walk with a taverna overlooking the sea, with pretty decent food and a beach bar. Its all very quiet, perfect for us.
Alianthos Suites are a 15 minutes drive from the airport. Studio was basic but we had a lovely patio. There was a separate kitchen which had a fridge, and a hob and although we didn't use it at all it seemed pretty well equipped. Twin beds, storage and hangers were also provided. The pool area is lovely, with beautiful views to sea, well established and maintained gardens. The breakfast provided is very basic, but George is a fantastic, friendly host and was so welcoming every morning. The coffee wasn't very good, but we still had a cup every day, it was just a bit weak for our liking. George also cooked lunch for us one day. He is offering to cook anything anyone wants and we told him to cook something local! He prepared a very good traditional pork and celery dish with potatoes, which was very much home Greek cooking and we really enjoyed the experience. The location is lovely and quiet, and you can walk to the nearby beach which is very small, uncrowded and perfect for families with young children.Would recommend you have a car so you can explore the beautiful west side of Crete and Chania. Alianthos was lovely, we would definitely return.

2 nights in Crete

Posted Oct 12, 2015 on Hotels
Alianthos was a decent place for a couple nights stay for our small family. Unfortunately, when we booked we were traveling with a friend and booked a single unit with 2 rooms so we could all be together. When we arrived we were in 2 separate units. I feel the rooms could've been cleaner. The air conditioner wasn't on when we arrived and there were some bugs inside the rooms. The internet did not work at all in the rooms. It worked only in the lobby where there was no air conditioning. The best thing of this place was the swimming area in the back. We practically had it to ourselves. There was even a lounge chair and beach umbrella to keep from direct sunlight. The waters were pretty rough for little ones though. We really enjoyed the little beach in the area. Good enough stay for 2 nights.

We had a great stay at the Alianthos Suite hotel. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The place is perfect for travellers who want a quieter place to stay after a long sightseeings etc.

Disastrous situation turned into an enjoyable stay

Posted May 2, 2015 on Hotels
My boyfriend and I arrived at this location in Chania last week and upon driving through the gate we immediately knew something was off. It appeared that the entire estate had been abandoned. There was trash everywhere and all the bushes were overgrown and clearly nothing had been maintained for some time. We arrived and tried to get someones attention and a man walks out in what appears to be his pajamas, but he quickly goes back inside and gets dressed appropriately. When he comes back out he explains to us how they have been experiencing many issues lately and he apologizes, but they are going to take us to another hotel on the other side of the island for the duration of our stay. This made us feel a little better, but we weren't sure what the hotel would look like. I will have to say it was a far drive to the other location, but the man took us the entire way and had called ahead to the hotel to ensure they had a nice room waiting for us. Even though the Alianthos Suites was in shambles we were very pleased with the warm welcome and terrific room overlooking the beach that the hotel had provided us for our stay. The hotel staff at Indigo Mare went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our time and were very apologetic for the mishap. I believe they may be owned by the same person so they are sister hotels. Wish we would have been notified ahead of time of the problem, but overall it turned out alright in the end and we had a pleasant stay at the Indigo Mare hotel.

Perfect Crete hideaway

Posted Jun 1, 2014
The apartments are in a fantastic location if you are looking for a peaceful holiday away from the crowds. The gardens and the pool are lovely but best for us was the diving platform off the rocks at the bottom of the garden, directly into the sea. Peri & Louda could not have been more accomodating and solved a plumbing problem with minimum of fuss and maximum thought to our holiday. The nearby beach and bay is perfect - small and almost empty at the end of May. The only taverna on the bay is run by a great guy who cooks perfect grilled squid and cuttlefish. All in all, a deeply relaxing holiday in a peaceful location with other like minded, unobtrusive holidayers. Highly recommended

Late Plane Arrival

Posted May 23, 2014 on Hotels
We arrived around 12am because we took a late plane. The staff knew we were going to arrive late and showed us to our room. It was far from the airport 20 minutes and 20 euros for a taxi. The outside of the is beautiful pretty location but not close to anything. There were also some bugs in our room - this may be normal for Greece, but Americans were not used to this. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and if we rented a car and were not planning on going anywhere we would maybe go back.

Alianthos in May

Posted May 12, 2014
Pros: Standard of accommodation Views and complex The staff
Cons: -
Location: Swimming, relaxing, eating, drinking! Visits to local monasteries, port of Chania and historic valleys in the White Mountains
Very good location overlooking the Bay of Chania. An excellently presented suite - clean, and well equipped with good outdoor furniture on a large balcony. Attractive and comfortable swimming pool area and gardens. Most importantly excellent service from the staff of Peri and Luda who were welcoming, helpful and dedicated.
