Designer good looks and a great dining scene are just a couple of the Atlantica Kalliston Resort & Spa’s high points.

Nice holiday, but not as good as we were hoping for-
We booked through Thomson's, from the UK. I will say the holiday started off with complete mayhem at the airport with a queue like no other. My husband assured me this is normal traveling with Thomson's during the summer. The flight was good, no complaints and traveling to Crete was easy enough but the hotel itself was a bit disappointing. We were greeted with everyone else once we arrived at the hotel. There was very little personalised service. We felt like just another couple being scooted around. Once checking into our room we were quite pleased. We had a suite with an amazing sea view. The bed was comfortable, and the room quiet. Our Air Con did break about half way into our week-long stay and the maintenance man was able to come in a timely manner, but we were stuck with only a fan for a part of our stay until the it was fixed properly. the bathroom was very humid with no real window and we had to shower with the door open. Also, we could not shower without water leaking out all over the bathroom floor. The seal on the door was very poor. The pool was nice. We especially like the blue pool facing the beach and getting chairs in the morning was not really an issue. Although, I would strongly suggest leaving a book and towel on your chair before going to breakfast or you won't get your first choice of loungers. The temperature was perfect and the water massage elements were a nice touch-no hot tub however. The beach itself was nice with soft sand-very VERY hot on the feet though! The water was relatively clear and swimming was quite nice during the calmer days. I went for a massage one afternoon that was pleasant. It was nothing too special, but relaxing. The spa itself was clean and sufficient although pretty much empty so I'm guessing there aren't many that partake in these services. I think most disappointing was the food. My husband and I are foodies I guess, so maybe hard to please. I would say it was totally average. The breakfast was good enough, but nothing special. Dinner was very unappealing for us. Vegetables were overcooked, meats too well-done, pasta was oily. Desserts were mini-size bites, nothing really that great. We ended up trading our dinner for lunch most days. We enjoyed some nice Greek salad, but that's about all I can really speak of. I'm not a picky eater, and we certainly aren't luxury diners. I just felt it would have been better to go with more made to order buffet style rather than large trays of food under heat lamps. With the food at the hotel, less than desirable, we ventured out on a few occasions. The restaurant just next to the resort on the beach was decent. We had fried calamari which was - well, the same you'd have in the UK. The hotel down the street (rental apartments) was said to be pretty good on Trip Advisor. This family restaurant was our best meal whilst we were on the island. We had the fireworks seafood grill. We were able to catch the bus into Chania in the evening for a few dinners. Be very leery of the pushy waterfront restaurants. The food is rubbish, although, I guess the view was worth sitting at a table. There are some better restaurants up the hill on the shopping streets. We had a lovely Italian dinner under canopy of ivy which was very nice. Basically, it's not the most luxurious vacation ever but we enjoyed gorgeous weather, a nice beach and refreshing pool. The day time entertainment was lovely as well.More

"A lovely couples hotel"
My review is very late,but better late then never, we stayed here in June 2015 for 2 weeks,on arrival we were greeted very warmly with a cold drink and a cold flannel while they check us in which was very swift.we were taken to our room by a very nice lady who made sure everything was to our liking which it was,we had booked and paid for a seaview room,our room was in the old part of the hotel on the fourth floor we had requested a high floor and the hotel duly obliged,our room was lovely with a very large bathroom with mood lighting.The hotel is in a lovely position right on the stunning beach,there are two swimming pools to choose from one with a swim up bar,both are a good size for doing your lengths in ( if you are like me ) what we liked most of all,is that you can't reserve sun beds before 9 o'clock and if you did the pool attendant would duly remove your belongs for you to retrieve.The staff are what make this hotel, they really could not do enough for you,the hotel manager and his deputy are very hands on,speaking to you to make sure everything is ok. The food was very good in the restaurants we ate in three of them,though there was four to choose from.We got the bus into Chania a couple of times a really lovely place to go and have a drink and people watch,we had not been to Crete before,but we would certainly go back and to the fantastic Atlantica Kalliston.Thank you for a wonderful holiday.More
We stayed at the Atlantica in October 2014 and had a fantastic time. The hotel was incredible and the photos on the website don't do it justice. From the minute we arrived we we're made to feel special and welcomed, with a welcome drink and cool clothes to refresh with. The facilities are great at this hotel, a range of restaurants to use, the pools are fantastic. And the hotel setting is beautiful! Right on the Beach We had a suite with private pool and had a sea view also. Excellent - we can recommend this. The staff were amazing, and could not do enough for you. Service from the Beach Bar and Lobby Bar was excellent. The facilities are great at this hotel, small but very clean gym, a range of restaurants to use, books to borrow, the pools are fantastic!! And the hotel setting is beautiful! Right on the beach! The food was generally amazing. Overall a excellent holiday we had. We would definitely go back to the Atlantica Kalliston as it was central to Chania and other resorts so there was plenty of places to see.More

not 5 star
lovely position on the beach and the food was very good but there wasn't much to do if the weather's bad. No indoor jacuzzi and the small pool had an exercise machine in it which impeded swimming. The spa facilities were at an extra cost.More
