We never go back to Summertime hotel and Platanias. The touristmachine Platanias was awful, only scandinavian tourists, and all the waiters speaking scandinavian. The beach was overcrowded. Stay away!

We was lucky and booked the apartment with the great terrace. And that was really great. It was not a terrace where we was absolutely private - but anyway a very nice spot- and great - bigger than the apparent
I didn't like the noise from the road - and people thinking they could sing opera at 3 o'clock in the morning because of the acoustics in the hallway
At the time for our holiday there was no personal in the Resepsjon - so it was difficult to know were to go with our questions
I also think there could be more than 2 glasses- spoons and plates. Although they did the washing up once a day- there was little kitchen wares. If you used them for breakfast - there was nothing clean for the rest of the day
We had a great holiday and a nice hotel at a nice location.
Have not decided yet if I want to use the same hotel

Location was great, super close to the beach and stores. Room was also good and everything worked properly. Wifi wasn't always the best but that wasn't too big of a deal. All in all, great experience!

We arrived at the hotel at 23.00 to a empty reseptionddesk. We could see our keys already laying there, but we didn't really want to just help ourselves here. Finally after a little while one of the other guests waiting walked to the bar and a securitygard came and helped us to our rooms. The room was of a quite good size (except the tv) and relatively modern.
We were tired and sweaty from the trip and therefore took a shower. In the shower the water made a little pool inside and was running down really slowly. We had to shower 30 seconds, than turn the shower of, and than wait for the water to go down before continuing the process all over again. Annoying.
The next morning the receptionist called us to wish us welcome and I then described our problem witch she said would be fixed the next day.
The next day we had the same problem, and we tried do find someone in the reseption, but no one was there, and this continued for the rest of our stay. It had a handwritten note that we had to contact the bar which we did. He told us that one guy had looked at the problem, but that he couldn't find anything wrong. This guy, who is not speaking any English comes to our room. Removes a lot of stuff from the drain and showed us that the water is going down smoothly. I guess it was a little better without the thing he took out, but it didn't help us the least. So the rest of our holiday we had the same problem showering and was not really happy about the help that we got.
Didn't try any food or drinks so can't say anything about that.

Platanias in it self is a long street with poor of choise of shops, and were the drivers driving in the street does not show any respect for pedestrians trying to cross over. You had to cross to come to the shop and the beach laying just across the street from the hotel.

I can really recommend Chania city though. The busstop is just outside the hotel and the busses are coming quite often. It's bumpy, crowded and not so pleasant, but it will get you there.

The beach were we lay had free sunbeds if you bought something from the beach bar. You also got free internet access.

Not coming back to Plataninas again, but if you are going there and are tired of crappy looking tired hotels, this hotel is a good choice.

Location is good, close to the beach and there are lots of good restaurants along the beach. All staff were nice and supportive and room was perfect. It was clean and spacious, had a balcony with a great view. My boyfriend and I really liked it. There were well-managed pool and bar, we spent a lot of time there. They also have a car rental service and offer a free parking.

We had a wonderful stay and never forget.

You cannot find a better hotel than this perfect one in Plantanias, highly recommend!
