Nice hotel directly at the beach, shops very close, but no pool and there was no room service the first two days of our stay.

This was basically one of the cheapest hotels I could find for a cheeky little break on a budget. What a find! It is spotlessly clean, if I didn't know better I would think it was a new build - but finished, unlike many Greek buildings ;o) The room is basic but comfortable - the professional photos are exact. The shower is hot, the bathroom is also spotless as is the shower curtain - no mould or mildew. The beds are comfortable if a little hard. The kitchenette is small but functional - sufficient for preparing breakfast or a snack. There was air-conditioning/heating. We used the heating a little in the evening (we were there in April) and there was no extra charge. The wi-fi worked perfectly for me but for some reason my husband couldn't connect. Sheets and towels were changed once during the week, the floor was moped and the bins emptied every day. From our small balcony at the front of the hotel we had a view of the sea and the sun in the afternoon/evening. The hotel is situated at the end of the main street near a Lidl but there are also plenty of restaurants within walking distance even before the season really starts in May. The owners are very friendly and we tried our best to exchange a few words in Greek and in English. There was no hairdryer in the room but she provided me with one as soon as I asked. The only thing missing were mugs for our tea - but that's a very British thing and we bought two as souvenirs so no problem. If you want something nice and clean on a budget don't hesitate!

We went to Crete in April so the season hasn't begun yet that's why it was very quiet around. Panos Beach Hotel is located right next to a big 5* Hotel so probably during summer it may be quite noisy there but I think that during that time it's hard to find a place on Crete where it wouldn't be noisy at all but I may be wrong. Of course it's right next to the beach as it stated on their site so it's a really big advantage. We had a great view at the see from our room's balcony. Towels and sheets were changed once a week but in our case it wasn't a problem when we asked for some extra towels. So the staff was very polite and very helpful with giving us advice on what to visit, what is worth sightseeing, what is worth eating etc. Just around the corner you may find local supermarkets and LIDL which is the cheapest option. Same thing goes with car rentals, they are almost everywhere. The cost of getting to Panos Beach Hotel from the airport by taxi is around 40 Euros but you may as well go by bus to Chania and then take a taxi. Everything depends on your plane arrival time. It's always good to negotiate a lower price. Our plane departure was quite late so they let us stay in the hotel until afternoon without any additional charges. And that's that. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone who doesn't want to spend loads of money but at the same time will be provided with a great customer service and a very decent room in a beautiful location!

We loved staying here! The staff were absolutley lovely, so friendly and sweet. The rooms were cleaned, sheets and towels changed etc on an almost daily basis. We unfortunatley lost our room key one night and they gave us a replacement straight away with no cost. I would recommend this place, it's a budget hotel but feels so welcoming and clean and is right on the beach on a quiet road to the beach...enjoy:)
