7.9 Good
Pros: The wine-tasting on 16 October was a really good experience.
Cons: We were not informed in advance that facilities in the hotel will be closed before the end of our stay. The price for the room was not reduced during the time with limited hotel services available. The check-in and check-out are to be improved if the hotel wants to stand for it's 5 stars. The beach can be improved in terms of access to the sea without all the rocks and wooden peaces. There was only welcome coffee capsules and water bottle and for 5 stars and the price (160 Eur/night) we were expecting to have them for every day of the stay.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderfully run hotel. Incredible level of hospitality.
Cons: Slightly noisy near the main road.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything! This is our second time staying at Minoa and we loved it just as much as the first time... From the breakfast to the beach to all the staff... It is all wonderful and cannot be faulted. We hope to return again one day.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It had everything we needed and the staff were all super friendly! It was also close to the highway which was ideal for day trips.
Cons: There was not many things that we did not like about the hotel. However when we went for a couples massage, the quality was extremely varied and definitely not worth 80 euros per person.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing food, very helpful staff
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Highly recommended. Can not fault it. Definitely worth the money. Staff were great. Room was extremely comfortable. Facilities superb!
Cons: Nothing. It’s a great place to stay in Crete.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Convenient location with many restaurants, shops, bars and super markets around. Breakfast is ok.
Cons: Dinner is only served from 7pm - same for all three restaurants inside hotel. Gym closes at 19:30, after which you need to go to the reception to get authorisation and sign a paper. It’s quite scary while using the gym after it closes because it locates almost at the end corner of the resort - not very pleasant an experience. View from the beach has nothing special. What is WORST is that bathroom shampoo/body wash/soap are NOT refilled at all for 3 days!! We have to ring up the reception to request for it!! And thank goodness it was provided on the 4th (and last) night of our stay.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The place was great - just as I expected. The owner is really nice and the location is right on the beach. It is more isolated from other hotels to those who like the quietness - and yet still, lots of restaurants and a few shops. Lovely ! very nice decoration and 30m apartment ! all new and clean !
10.0 Excellent

Good breakfast and a very good restaurant by the beach with great Greek cuisine and really nice and helpful staff. You can also have sunbeds on the beach and a supermarket. “Filoxenia” is the word to describe it. We were really happy there. Hope to come back.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Good location for shops and supermarket but in a very quiet peaceful location. Also very close to the beach with restaurant right next to the sand! Restaurant lovely and quaint and very “Mamma Mia”, with good selection of very tasty food. Good size studio with comfortable beds and nice balcony with furniture.
Cons: One thing I didn’t like and it was a bit of a big problem for us - a small shower tray with an old-fashioned shower curtain which constantly wrapped around your body whilst showering. Failed to see why it was so small as a large bathroom. Only thing which saved our sanity was using the basement shower (large open shower) which was for clients with a late flight after check-out.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a tasty Studio facing the sea and loved the Tavernen. The food was very good and the staff was very attentive- parking was limited but we were lucky. It is on the quiet part of the street. We came late from the airport and for us it was perfect. We did not cook but made breakfast ourself. We saw more luxurious places on the beach but still think the package Sonia with the pool/ the taverna/ tasty greek Charme / right on the Beach/staff is perfect for a relaxing holiday.

Cons: The view was not great. Although we could see the sea it was over the carpark and roofs of the restaurant on the other side of the car park. The bed was too hard for us.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The most enduring quality of this hotel was the staff. They made us extremely welcome and could not do enough to make our holiday a success. The room was basic but very adequate and most importantly very very clean. Beds were very comfortable and fresh towels and linen was supplied regularly. The most endearing quality was the personality of the staff. We now consider them friends and will be visiting them in future. There was a weekly Greek night also that was so much fun and not to be missed.
Cons: We did not find anything we did not like. The car parking facility could have been better, but then not all tourists have cars. The Bar area could be bigger, would have made the Greek dancing a bit easier but understand there is limited space around the pool.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I was on a vacation with my husband 11 days. We booked economy room but Maria gave us a better room by the same price. Very good location, the sea is near and a lot of markets and restaurants. Very kind personal, Maria helped us with booking a car and was always opened for our questions. Highly recommend this place! :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cozy atmosphere! The staff was very kind!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We arrived at the property to be welcomed by a lovely lady on reception. She told us all about the rooms and the times of breakfast and what was available at the studios. The room was perfect and very clean. The cleaners came in every day and changed sheets and gave us fresh towels. We were even given some wine to enjoy. Everything was close to hand with shops and beach just down the road. The pool area is lovely and never too busy. When leaving, a car was booked for us and we said our goodbyes. The cost of staying there for 7 days was so reasonable. I am looking forward to returning next holiday. I would highly recommend spending some time at Apollon Studios.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Close to the beach, with great restaurants in walking distance. Very nice staff. They even set up breakfast for us when we needed to leave at 4am in our last day. Really great value for money. Highly recommended!

Cons: no bar to chill out in the evenings, the snack bar was limited for food
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was nothing short of fabulous. You can tell that the people there work hard and care about what they do. They helped us arrange a taxi to pick us up from the airport and extended a very warm welcome when we arrived. The property is exceptionally clean! The rooms are very spacious and have probably the best air conditioning units I've ever used in a hotel (very important in the summer). Meals were offered at set times and offered a range of dishes. The quality of the food was fantastic. We were always trying something new at mealtimes. Our last night there they had live music! The property is maybe a ten minute walk to the closest beach, making it super accessible. It's also very close to the bus stop that takes you to the city of Chania. WELL WORTH the price for this all inclusive hotel. I miss it already!!!
Cons: Quality of the drinks could have been better, but considering it's a three star hotel, I'd say it's about on par. Other than that, the entire stay was wonderful.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Food and personal. Nice apartment.
Cons: I booked two nights. After check-in we needed to pay immediately. We go to our room and we saw too many children in the hotel. Hotel is suitable for families not for couples. We wanted to rebook just for one night but manager said it is not possible. I was really pissed. Balcony from room was on side to the pool. Many children was there. No place for relax.

Cons: Sometimes the staff seemed a bit rushed and rushing. But I bet they didn't have any bad intentions. It's a family hotel, quiet, not so much for a young vibe
7.1 Good
Pros: Great location Good staff Good food quality
Cons: No air con in the bedroom is an issue. In summer sleeping in bedroom is impossible as it is too hot. You need to keep the living room air con to full speed and lowest settings to get little bit comfort in the room by middle of night. By that time kids in the living room are shivering as the room is freezing! They provide only one room key. They do however, will come and open the door for you if you need just in case your family is somewhere else. But thats it. They wont give you the key so you cant tune on electricity and air con if you need to be in the room! This is a big issue. I guess they dont give second key as people will keep the electricity on to keep the room cool! But hey, its not cheap hotel to have this policy

A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free valet parking is available onsite.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Nice location
Cons: We checked-in after midnight, so we went directly to sleep, leaving A/C at the lowest possible temperature because the room was very hot. We woke up in 07:00 in the morning like we were in a Sauna because A/C never worked. We asked immediately to change the room, so the reception told us to wait until 10:00 am for the A/C technicians because the rooms were fully booked. Surprisingly, after I told them that we would leave the hotel, they found a room for us, with working A/C. As a result, the next day completely ruined, because we were exhausted. During our check-out we asked the Hotel Manager to exclude the cost of the first day (for a room that had non-working A/C) and his response to that was that they can only do a discount (not the whole amount, not even 50%), only for us, because we are Greeks, otherwise they would not. Additionally, they informed us that things like this "happen". 1. Never happened before in any hotel that we stayed at 2. You should just take the responsibility for a problem that your clients are not responsible, ruining their vacation 3. We don't care! Regarding cleaning of the room, was never cleaned during our 2 days stay.

Pros: The breakfast buffet, the facilities, location near the city Chania, access to the beach, good restaurant, different swimming-pools and friendly staff

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Good service, family staff.
Cons: One of the pools was broken
3.2 Mediocre
Pros: Beautiful garden..
Cons: according to hotel, the check-in is after 14.00. We were there at 14.30 but the room was not still ready! There was no apology for that from the staff!! After a half an hour, and having spent much of our valuable free time, we entered to our rooms at 15.00..No soap in bathroom.. Air-condition is charged with extra fee (where as almost most of hotels, prodive it free). We don't suggest it at all..
2.4 Mediocre
Pros: The positioning of the hotel was relatively good.
Cons: Even though I am very relaxed and tolerant when on holidays, I found the owner's attitude appalling and also very rude when we asked whether we could have warm water in the shower which I never believed was something you had to ask for. He even told me that I was demanding and that he didnt care less whether I never went out to Chania because I had to wait for 2 hours for anys sign of warm water. The water was freezing the room was nothing special and the extra 5 Euro charge for the A/C is slightly sneaky as the heat makes it a necessity. I left the hotel on day 2 to find somewhere else even whiling to pay the 30% fee. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone else.
6.8 Good
Pros: We stayed in Marakis for 4 nights in an extremely nice poolside room. Our can see that the hotel is family owned and that they really understand the meaning of a customer service, really nice staff!!! and the location is right in the center of Platanias but still in a very quiet area with a beautiful garden. Bank, lots of restaurants, supermarket souvenir shops etc.. are just 4 minutes away. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return!!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is fantastic, just off the strip and so close to the beach. Also close to the bus stop for a quick 20 minute bus ride for 1 euro into the beautiful Chania which has amazing restaurants. The staff are fantastic and are incredibly helpful. The locals in the region are really friendly.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff. The cleanliness. Everything was well arranged. The cleaning staff was amazing too
Cons: There wasn't anything that I didn't like. Everything was amazing. Just the breakfast breads were a little hard to bite
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The most enduring quality of this hotel was the staff. They made us extremely welcome and could not do enough to make our holiday a success. The room was basic but very adequate and most importantly very very clean. Beds were very comfortable and fresh towels and linen was supplied regularly. The most endearing quality was the personality of the staff. We now consider them friends and will be visiting them in future. There was a weekly Greek night also that was so much fun and not to be missed.
Cons: We did not find anything we did not like. The car parking facility could have been better, but then not all tourists have cars. The Bar area could be bigger, would have made the Greek dancing a bit easier but understand there is limited space around the pool.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I was on a vacation with my husband 11 days. We booked economy room but Maria gave us a better room by the same price. Very good location, the sea is near and a lot of markets and restaurants. Very kind personal, Maria helped us with booking a car and was always opened for our questions. Highly recommend this place! :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cozy atmosphere! The staff was very kind!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We arrived at the property to be welcomed by a lovely lady on reception. She told us all about the rooms and the times of breakfast and what was available at the studios. The room was perfect and very clean. The cleaners came in every day and changed sheets and gave us fresh towels. We were even given some wine to enjoy. Everything was close to hand with shops and beach just down the road. The pool area is lovely and never too busy. When leaving, a car was booked for us and we said our goodbyes. The cost of staying there for 7 days was so reasonable. I am looking forward to returning next holiday. I would highly recommend spending some time at Apollon Studios.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Close to the beach, with great restaurants in walking distance. Very nice staff. They even set up breakfast for us when we needed to leave at 4am in our last day. Really great value for money. Highly recommended!

Pros: all staff amazing and friendly, going out of their way, a special shout out to elaine the restaurant manager and lovely receptionists! room out of this world (stayed in split level apt). there was no bar in the evening, the restaurant turned into a bar - which closed at 10.45, the restaurant food was lovely, it changed every night, the pool snack bars food was only average.
Cons: no bar to chill out in the evenings, the snack bar was limited for food
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was nothing short of fabulous. You can tell that the people there work hard and care about what they do. They helped us arrange a taxi to pick us up from the airport and extended a very warm welcome when we arrived. The property is exceptionally clean! The rooms are very spacious and have probably the best air conditioning units I've ever used in a hotel (very important in the summer). Meals were offered at set times and offered a range of dishes. The quality of the food was fantastic. We were always trying something new at mealtimes. Our last night there they had live music! The property is maybe a ten minute walk to the closest beach, making it super accessible. It's also very close to the bus stop that takes you to the city of Chania. WELL WORTH the price for this all inclusive hotel. I miss it already!!!
Cons: Quality of the drinks could have been better, but considering it's a three star hotel, I'd say it's about on par. Other than that, the entire stay was wonderful.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Food and personal. Nice apartment.
Cons: I booked two nights. After check-in we needed to pay immediately. We go to our room and we saw too many children in the hotel. Hotel is suitable for families not for couples. We wanted to rebook just for one night but manager said it is not possible. I was really pissed. Balcony from room was on side to the pool. Many children was there. No place for relax.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very polite staff

7.9 Good
Pros: The wine-tasting on 16 October was a really good experience.
Cons: We were not informed in advance that facilities in the hotel will be closed before the end of our stay. The price for the room was not reduced during the time with limited hotel services available. The check-in and check-out are to be improved if the hotel wants to stand for it's 5 stars. The beach can be improved in terms of access to the sea without all the rocks and wooden peaces. There was only welcome coffee capsules and water bottle and for 5 stars and the price (160 Eur/night) we were expecting to have them for every day of the stay.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderfully run hotel. Incredible level of hospitality.
Cons: Slightly noisy near the main road.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything! This is our second time staying at Minoa and we loved it just as much as the first time... From the breakfast to the beach to all the staff... It is all wonderful and cannot be faulted. We hope to return again one day.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It had everything we needed and the staff were all super friendly! It was also close to the highway which was ideal for day trips.
Cons: There was not many things that we did not like about the hotel. However when we went for a couples massage, the quality was extremely varied and definitely not worth 80 euros per person.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing food, very helpful staff
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Highly recommended. Can not fault it. Definitely worth the money. Staff were great. Room was extremely comfortable. Facilities superb!
Cons: Nothing. It’s a great place to stay in Crete.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Convenient location with many restaurants, shops, bars and super markets around. Breakfast is ok.
Cons: Dinner is only served from 7pm - same for all three restaurants inside hotel. Gym closes at 19:30, after which you need to go to the reception to get authorisation and sign a paper. It’s quite scary while using the gym after it closes because it locates almost at the end corner of the resort - not very pleasant an experience. View from the beach has nothing special. What is WORST is that bathroom shampoo/body wash/soap are NOT refilled at all for 3 days!! We have to ring up the reception to request for it!! And thank goodness it was provided on the 4th (and last) night of our stay.
