A truly enjoyable accommodiation,good location,superb value for money,run by friendly staff.
The peace and quiet. Very relaxing. Dogs being allowed to stay.
Wonderful staff, very quiet. Lovely and clean. No.
Large, 2 bedroom apartment with balcony, 1.5 bath, pool very clean. Very quiet as there were few people there during our stay. Fairly close to drive to beaches. Housekeeping even washed our dishes & got clean towels every day. Short drive to grocery store to buy food and supplies. You definitely need a car for this location. Manager was not always available, only there during certain hours and it was not posted when she would be there. When she was there, she was very personable and attentive to our needs.
The appartments were very well proportioned, the bedrooms and livingrooms roomy. The bathroom was adequate and the shower was very good: abundant water and the temperature that you wanted. They also had a good breakfast/restaurant and a good swimming pool. The best was the beach, a sheltered private cove with calm aquamarine water, beautifull and very safe for children. The mattresses were unbelievably hard, so we did not sleep very well for the first couple of days though you eventually got used to them. The other thing is its location. It was very inconvenient for exploring Crete. It is 17 kms out of Chania, so you can go there in the evenings and enjoy the city (though it is half an hour by car, because of the winding road and horrific Chania traffic), but for longer trips it was too far out. So, if you want to relax and not move far it is a perfect location (Stavros has a lot of nice beaches), but for exploring farther away it is very inconvenient.
The nice view from our room We needed more shade at the windows.
This place offers fantastic value for money, beautiful location, tasty enjoyable food and a nice chilled out atmosphere - if you want to relax and get away from it all we would hightly recommend it. The staff were very helpful, friendly and hospitable (always smiling) and they made us welcome and offered lots of advice (which we wish we had listed to more as they could have saved us lots of money). Manolis & Yannis were really helpful when we got a parking fine in Chania, if we took their advice before going out we could have avoided that. Also Yannis recommend some lovely dishes from the menu which were all superb. We would definately return if we decided to go back to this region of Crete.Compliments to all the staff we had fab holiday. There's nothing we can think of, everything was perfect.
We liked the fact it was out of the way and there-fore quiet. The off season helped in that regard too. Close to ocean swimming. Good for beach walking. Very pleasent and helpful staff who, obviously , enjoy their work.
Excellent snorkling beach, pool, nearby taverna, clean, family oriented and friendly. Better food and quicker servive
I liked all the eagerness of the female staff to please every day I stayed there. They went out of their way to provide every request no mattter how busy they were with other matters. I did not like the distance from Hania and the availability of the limited bus service. I did not experience any live music or dancing which I would have enjoyed at least once a week to experience cretean LIFE.The food offer at all times of the day needs a thorough overhall and description of what is on offer and how it is cooked. a notice board at the front of reception informing guests of special menus and available services such has large screen tv for the World Cup is an necessity. Thank you
well-organized, nice pool, friendliness of the staff, location, decent taverna, internet availability air condition not included in price, internet not included in price, our bedroom window next to the other apartment's table
We found Blue Beach to be a beautiful and friendly environment. Both the staff and the neighbors quickly felt like a part of the extended family. The hotel had a nice little playground for children, and the private beach was a wonderful place to relax.
Beautiful area, very friendly staff. I did not feel like a stranger, I felt like home. the hotel has a traditional cretan style decoration and the gardens are beautifull. the beach is 3 minutes walk and it is really nice and well-organized. the pool has a great view in the afternoon as you see the sun entering the water.
Facilities Transportation to and fro airport, tourists attrations and towns
Comfortable base for exploring the area Dinner was not up to standard; this means, given remoteness of hotel, that one needs a car to go elsewhere!
Location and view were superb. Great pool; nice outside restaurant. Turn down the music at dinner a little. Not much local atmosphere..hotel seemed built on undeveloped land...no local village.
Very good hotel with nice staff. Excellent sea view Poor menu in restaurant if you don't like fish. A lot of Dutch soldiers every week due to a 3 year contract
Location is very beautiful. Continual construction noise (jack-hammering all day). Lack of sufficient staff. Isolated location means that you always have to eat at the hotel restaurant (which is pricey and so-so).
We were upgraded free of charge to a one bed apartment, which was greatly appreciated. The rooms were comfortable and spacious (apart from the shower room). Beautiful sea views from two private terraces. There was also an open-air communal seating area outside the front door of the apartment. Lovely pool. Fairly easy to find from the airport, even in the dark. The shower room needs refurbishment and would benefit from a different layout.
The attention of the staff is excellent the rooms cleans ans spacious. The view extraordinary. We like everything.
The location was lovely, the staff at the apartments were very helpful and friendly. The apartments were very comfortable and the pool area top notch. Highly recommend this place to stay
The hotel owner and his family were very helpful and the swimming pool was beautifully clean as was the rest of the complex I would have preferred shopping/eating facilities a little nearer, but this was not that important.
Very nice place with beatiful seaview. Apartment was clean and good equiped , hotel area nice with many plants and flowers. There are 3 beaches in Stavros, and the distance to the nearest is about 200m. The distance to the sea is about 50m.
Excellent location with wonderful pool and fabulous sunset views over the sea. Excellent family run hotel.
The staff were very friendly and the area quiet and peaceful which was what I was looking for. Fantastic views of the sea.
Clean well cared for apartment,pool clean, grounds clean,parking easy, no it was a positive experience,(4 about your stay) below this panel does not work!!!
The location is beautiful and peaceful. The room is well equipped and clean. The owners are friendly and helpful. The pool is incredible, clean, big and deep with an amazing view of the sea. The Greek sewage system is different from ours and collecting the toilet papers in the trash is little weird, but the cleaning lady changed it every day.
1 great location and view 2 proactive and client oriented staff (services proactively provided: documentation for sightseeing, car rental, a good traditional welcome drink). very hospitable and nice people: both attentive and discrete when needed 3 all family speaks English, so there is no communication problem 4 very nice room and very very clean 5 very nice and clean pool. quite surroundings remote: need a car
easy, lovely and very quiet atmosphere, all rooms have sea view, well kept surroundings, clean rooms, friendly stuff, sea is just 20 m. from appartments, large pool open from 9:00 till 21:00 there is no sandy beach in hotel, but there is possible to get into the sea through the rocks if you have special shoes. nearest mini market is about 20 min walk away. there is no any problems if you have car.
We stayed already the second time at Zorbas and loved the place. It is quiet, has a wonderful salt-water swimming pool, is next to the beach and the excellent restaurant Thanasis.
The location of the apartments is stunning. The swimming pool is beautiful and there are some lovely beaches and good restaurants nearby. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our apartment was cleaned regularly. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning! It is quite remote and would be a long walk to local amenities.
The location was excellent and private, but close to buses and the city. Car parking facilities were good. The rooms were spacious and the apartment was well set out and maintained. I have accidently taken the safe key home and wish to post it back but can not find the address. Please email back posting details.
We have stayed in many resorts in Crete and we have never been shown so much hospitality as we received at Zorbas. We will definitely return!
Location - close to airport but great beach and pool. Quiet. Very basic, run down room. Lots of mosquitos. No Aircon.
The view There was no stuff in the hotel and the reception was closed...i could not find anyone except by phone or by accident!
The room was nice, spacious and clean. There was no one there (staff) We had to call the number on the door to get service. The restaurant and bar were closed, unlike advertised. We had to walk through the country to get something to eat. Once I realized the dogs were not going to eat me the walk was actually nice.
The staff was extremely helpful. The room was large. The pool was very nice. The location was great.
the place, the rooms, the service, the pool, the breakfast, the flowers an trees, the wifi, the view, the peace nothing at all
The view is fantastic Hotel is wonderful but without a car is impossible to go anywhere. Great for honeymooners, very quiet.
Nice hotel for a calm stay. Good sea and mountain view. Staff very helpful .good tavernas closeby. Breakfast is minimum ( It is everywhere in Greece) ! few more utensils and a microwave in the kitchen would be helpful. The shower place was very small and the drain was very slow.
Hotel is brand new, in a great location, ideal for relaxed holiday, staff is very friendly. The swimming pool was not clean enough, there is no bar serving drinks or snacks, the reception is only open during breakfast.
Great views, large room, friendly staff, pleasant environment (garden, relatively large pool, surrounded by olive groves, nice architecture with the use of stone on the buildings and well-kept tasteful garden with many flowers and shrubs). Very good value for money, large room with equipped kitchenette and our verandah had a great sea view. Breakfast leaves room for improvement. Unfortunate that 2 houses were being built (summer '09) close by so partially blocking the sea view of some rooms (thankfully not ours!) and also was a bit noisy due to the construction work. The construction work should be complete by this year though.
Quiet location, good views and good pool. Breakfast included, although choice limited.
