A guide to Best Hotels in Chania
Holidays in Chania are all about exploring its gorgeous Blue Flag beaches. Whether you’re on the golden sands of Gerani or in the hip bars of Agia Marina, there’s a destination for every visitor. When you’re not on the beach, Chania is the perfect base for exploring Crete. From the Samaria Gorge to the site of World War Two battles, you’re surrounded by a landscape rich in history and nature. The hotels in Chania are just as varied as the area. Stay at the secluded Althea Village Hotel or the family-friendly Sirios Village Hotel for your perfect holidays to Chania.
The Sirios Village Hotel and Bungalows has everything for a fun, enjoyable family holiday. Low-rise bungalows circle a handful of pools, forming the heart of the complex. There are two big pools with separate areas for children, as well as a third pool with waterslides. Inside, there’s a modern spa with a sauna, steam-room and gym. There’s live entertainment in the evenings, and the restaurants include both buffet and a la carte menus. Plus, if you fancy holidaying in luxury, you can hire suites with private pools and hot tubs.
Set 600 metres from the beach within acres of land filled with olive and fruit trees is the Althea Village Hotel. You can either cater for yourself in the well-furnished apartments or eat at one of the hotel’s restaurants. Serving up a range of traditional Cretan dishes or international buffet-style meals, there’s plenty of choice. There’s also a few pools with nearby bars, a fitness centre and an indoor games room. During the evening, you can watch live Cretan and Greek music.
This family-run complex has comfortable rooms, a central location and easy access to the beach at Agioi Apostoli. It’s a 10-minute walk to the sandy beach or a 10-minute drive to the centre of Chania Town – so you really can explore the island. The rooms have their own private balcony or terrace, or you can head down to the communal sun terrace to relax. The pool has a sectioned-off area for little ones and a poolside bar serving drinks and snacks.
