I stayed at the hotel for two weeks (all inclusive), and also I was staying for a week last summer so, obviously something must be amazing about this hotel. First off, the location in exellent seeing as the beach is down the road (1 min from hotel). The hotel is very big and has multiple pool areas which makes it...

We had a nice week here, with a nice room and nice pool. There was an adult pool as well with no children allowed, but there was still many noisy kids there, and speaking with the parents and the hotel staff didn't help. The breakfast was mostly desserts and the rest was very mass produced and quite bland. You didn't...

I was trying to upgrade the room for two weeks (for family 2+2, one of the kids is 12 months). I got the answer that they will offer me something at place. At arrival they offered the last apartment for people just before us. Those people even did not want it. They were convinced by the recepcionist! They totaly do...

The hotel was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff very friendly and the breakfast buffet was very good. However, our room was placed close to the pool bar and the door to the room had absolutely no soundproofing what so ever. You could stand on each side of the closed door and have a normal conversation...

We have just returned from our stay at Porto Platanias and we were pleased! Our rooms were comfortable and clean, although there were two single beds pushed together! The maids were brilliant and not only cleaned the rooms every day , we were provided with clean towels everyday which were arranged into different shapes and designs - a lovely touch....

Having never been to Greece before we didn't know what to expect. We also don't have experience of other hotels in Crete/Greece to make a comparison. Comparing it with other areas of the world it is expensive for what you get, it is definitely not a 5* hotel and they have a lot to learn about "all inclusive". This hotel...

The Porto Platanias is a nice resort just outside of Hania. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the food good. Overall, I would describe it as slightly above average. The price is fair, so you will get what you pay for. If you are planning a family friendly beach vacation to Crete and don't want to break the bank,...

The resort is located at a small harbor offering cruises to the close island on the one side and a long restaurant/bar/souvenir shopping street on the other side (the main street of Platanias). In addition to several pools, the resort offers a beach, which is just across the quiet backside street towards the small harbor (and only the rooms at...

This large complex has very nice facilities - mainly meaning the pools. Most of the pools are very child-friendly with separate areas. Rooms are nice with a minimum of furniture. A bit worn-out at some Places. The staff all-over is very friendly and smiles every time you meet them! Not enough sun-beds to all - and people reserve them early...

A five star resort which is not quite five star in the way resorts rarely are unless you pay top money. Not a cheap resort, but good for the money. Rooms are very nice and come in a variety of versions – different sizes and models, some with sea view and some overlooking different parts of the expansive resort. It...
