    Beautiful location and wonderful helpful staff for anything you might need. The rooms were clean and large and the village which was only a 10 minute walk had some great tavernas.

    Great spot to explore Cretes best beaches

    We had an excellent stay at Balos. It made an excellent base to visit Chania, local wineries, Balos Beach as well as Elafonissi. We did not spend all that much time at the hotel as we were exploring, but the rooms do have lovely sea views and the pool is great for a dip after a long hot day. The staff are exceptionally helpful and polite. The rooms themselves are quite big, but a little impractical with large desks and so forth which I think could be done away with since this area does not strike me much a business traveler hotspot. But still very comfortable stay. Lovely shower head which was a rare luxury during our 3 week trip, little compact kitchen with a fridge, a great view with outside table and chairs. Can not comment on breakfast as we opted to self cater. We did have dinner one evening, and did not really enjoy the food. We loved experiencing the authentic greek home cooked food, so we were a little disappointed with the average every day hotel food served at Balos. Other than the food, we would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Friendly staff, best location to explore the area

    Well kept property with the most amazing staff. Everybody was helpful, recommending us great local places to eat and visit. Great buffet breakfast with plenty of different choices each day, plus made to order eggs, omelettes an crepes. Very convenient to drive to the wonderful beaches around; Elafonisi, Kedrodassos and the best one, Balos lagoon. The hotel has a large nice pool and it's own beach with lounges and umbrellas. Beach is rocky so nobody really stays, but makes a wonderful view from the room balcony
