I had a great opportunity to stay at resort after winning a competition at work. Looking at the pictures of the resort online, I knew it looked amazing but I was not expecting it to be so spectacular. From the gorgeous swimming pools, great dinning (love all the different dishes they had on offer), seductive Spa to the fantastic rooms... More

There was a selection of wine and snacks in the room upon arrival – a nice touch to make you feel welcome. The service was... More

All is very good or excellent in this resort: the restaurant, the rooms, the service, the pool, the personnel but if you are looking for real Greece you need to go out and find it. Highly recommended.

The hotel looks really impressive. The lobby is large and very comfortable. The pool area is beautiful, with an enormous infinity pool, plus a couple of other pools. The bedrooms are very modern (though extra cupboards and a lock on the bathroom door would have been nice in a family bedroom) However the standard of service does not match that... More

A higher class hotel with very nice modern decoration, very clean and delicious food at the restaurant. Me and my wife we were impressed from the high quality services of all ladies at the hotel spa, Myrsini, Kyriaki, Anna and Ioanna (apologies if i didnt mention anyone!). The place is ideal for families.

Lovely top end hotel. Good food, friendly staff, spotless. Good little supermarket just up the road. Nice restaurants close by. Very cheap coach service to Chania. 3 swimming pools to choose from plus the beach very close by. Buffet style restaurant along with 2 others if you want something a little more private.

This year is our sixth stay at Avra Imperial. We love the atmosphere, the area, the many water pools and the staff's kind and professional attitude in any matter. The hotel serves both families with small children and couples who need a relaxing holiday. The restaurants are very good and the variety of food is excellent. We are already planning... More
