Really enjoyed staying at Minoa Palace. The hotel is superb; the environment and facilities are state of the art. The staff is very friendly and professional at the same time. Platanias is a vibrant suburb of Chania which offers everything you might need, and is only 20 mins by car from Chania. I am definitely going back!

Great location, very friendly staff apart from 'guest relations'. We booked a double room and were given a room with two single beds stuck together, when we asked at reception the next day they said that's the room you booked and you can't change it but promised to put a double mattress to make it more comfortable, however they didn't actually bother.
Hotel breakfast is average, not 5star standard. Good variety and food is fresh, waiters are extremely friendly and attentive. However the restaurant is packed and often have to wait for a table to be cleaned before being seated.
Hotel has 3 pools which are very nice and excellent bar with very friendly staff. Very clean with games available and activities for children.
Rooms are very clean and spacious. Air con did not always work and it was extremely noisy in the morning with hedge trimming taking place at 7am. Apart from that and the room mix up very good hotel.
Beachfront hotel sited in the Platanias resort, six kilometres west of the town of Chania and 25 kilometres from the …More
Very clean with good restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Excellent 2 pools kept very clean. Most rooms looked like they had a nice patio area, unfortunately our studio no 104 was right next to stairs and a narrow patio area with 2 air cons above which dripped.
Bathroom adequate with plenty of hot water with good water pressure.
Kitchen facilties adequate for tea/coffee plus a fridge.
Double bed was very hard and uncomfortable. The air con worked well and not too noisy.
Safe was free which was a bonus.
Home to Khania’s open-air, seaside dance clubs, Platanias lies 10 kilometres west of town. The old village stands on the hillside, while the modern resort stretches along the busy coastal road. There is a wide range of accommodation and numerous restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops. Tracks lead off the road to the two-kilometre-long sand beach, which is equipped water sports facilities and overlooks the islet of Thodorou.
