Me and my family had a lovely stay at Caretta beach hotel. It is a quiet hotel with a frendly athmosphere. The pool is good sized and the hotel is just by the beach, so the kids spend more time in the water then on land. Thea, Barbara and the rest of the staff are all very service minded, frendly...

We stayed for one week in june 2011. We had a two room apartment, bathroom and kitchenette for 65€/night. Plus: great location right on the beach, Perfect for families with younger children, the beach is not crowded. Near minimarket. Gerani i think is a very gold location for exploring western Crete. It's a quiet place, but only a five minute...

We had a very relaxing visit to Caretta Beach. The location is perfect for a peaceful getaway. Set on a beautiful scenic beach and with wam welcoming staff who can't do enough to help, it is an ideal holiday location. Close (14km) to the large town of Chania but still far enough away to escape the hussle of a busier...

Took me a few tries to finally find the driveway but that is really the only negative words to say about Caretta Beach. The staff is great, the grounds are well taken care of, the beach is quiet, romantic, and peaceful. The rooms are nice, well cleaned and maintained. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet...

My wife and I stayed at thishotel for three weeks in June and July of 2010. The hotel is well located, on a quite stretch of beach, away from the noise and the crowds but only a few minutes away from the nightlife, restaurants and other attractions. We had a rented car but for those who prefer public transportation the...

We spent two wonderful weeks in this little hidden gem of sophistication. The hotel is the perfect size, not too large to become an impersonal resort - just the right size with a small number of rooms and enough infrastructure with a restaurant / bar. The staff members we encountered were all amazingly helpful and could speak both English and...

To me this was the most perfect hotel I could have found! The hotel is as nice as the pictures on the internet, if not better. This small hotel has a great location, right at the beach, where it is quiet. All you can hear is the sea, the birds and sometimes sheep and chickens, really charming! I woke up...

We spent five nights here for our honeymoon and had an extremely pleasant stay. The location can't be beat for beach and pool activities. The hotel staff is extremely accomodating and knowledgeable about the area. Our room overlooked the Aegean Sea for romantic views of the sun setting each night.

“Rooms in front building have view of Med Sea; I do not think room in back buildings really do. By booking early we got CENTER TOP; a most amazing view of pool/beach/sea.”

“Staff will give you a set of keys and a "key for electricity" and tell you mustn't detach any of them. But if you want to keep the air con on, while you are away, simply detach that "key for electricity" and lock the door. Keep the shutters closed in the heat, OK this obscures the lovely view, but really makes a difference. Hotels helps in arranging taxis, booking cars, but honestly there are some crazy drivers in Greece - speeding and driving right next to the boot of the other car. Our taxis almost got invloved in an accident... Yes, we were with two small kids, but that detail wouldn't make the driver drive more carefully. No entertainment for kids (no slides, nothing)”
