“A beautiful luxury resort that is even more incredible than it looks in the photos. Surprisingly really family friendly, but there are also plenty of kid-free spaces (pool/restaurants/beach bars) for couples who want a bit more quiet and relaxation (the kids club is really great to leave the little ones behind). The resort is quite remote but if you’re looking to just hide out, relax and eat amazing Greek food in a breathtaking location for a week I’d definitely recommend.”

“The resort concept makes wonderful use of the exceptional location and view. Management/Staff make everything easy for guests. Exceptional ratio (amenities+service)/(Euro paid). Will definitely return.”

“It is hard to list down the things that I liked during my stay, from an overall perspective the resort is amazing. This was my 3rd visit to the resort over the past 5 years and I would like to take this as an opportunity to highlight the amazing staff that work hard and long hours to make our stay as memorable and enjoyable in every visit.”

Kriti Hotel is open year round so also the ideal location for a stay during the winter outside the tourist season. Outside the tourist season,  Chania City and the nearby Rhythminon are still buzzing and very attractive for a holiday during the winter. Chandia airport is located 11 km away and Ryan air flyes year round on this airport.

”The hotel, especially the pool area, was even nicer than it appeared in the photos. Fantastic breakfast until noon so you were not in a rush- some people went back to it for lunch! Great location near the sea, the old town and the new town. Friendly, helpful staff. Lovely room with air-con, which switched off when the balcony door was open but back on as soon as it was closed. Shower had good water pressure. Spotlessly clean. Nice body lotion to sooth my sunburn.”

“A great hotel, in a far nicer part of Chania town, by the old harbour (near to the wonderful Christomos restaurant). Very impressed with the relaxed but efficient atmosphere throughout. Layout, decor, bathroom were all very well put together. Everything was presented to a very high standard. The swimming pool was great, it looks small but has jets running some of the time that make it a very pleasant swim. The pool and pool area never seemed too oversubscribed. A very big thank you to Irina at the front desk for organising a handyman to retrieve my daughter’s ring (16th birthday present!) after it fell down the sink – within 5 minutes – and thankyou to the handyman as well! We were grateful and relieved. We hope to be back next year, a very easy stay, thankyou.”

“The location is very good: near the city centre and its main attractions but quiet and overlooking the traditional fishing port. The service was very good: staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Our room was comfortable and was well-equipped and well-maintained as well. The breakfast buffet is excellent: there is a very wide range of quality items, and the buffet is frequently refreshed.”

“I stayed at Lato in the off season – January 2018 – and during a very wintry period: the temperature was 8 or 9C and the winds off the sea were very strong. So it wasn’t easy to take advantage of some of the facilities, such as the rooftop garden / restaurant. The hotel’s location is excellent, however, and its staff could not be more friendly or helpful. Winter weather notwithstanding, I enjoyed my stay and would be happy to return.”
