The Atlantica Kalliston Resort & Spa has clinched a prime spot in Nea Kydonia. The hotel hugs the golden sands of Glaros Beach, so great views come as standard. What’s more, it’s only a couple of minutes’ walk from the nearest shops and cafés, and less than a 10-minute drive from the historical town of Chania.
The property’s interiors are stylish and contemporary. Take the rooms, for instance. They’re decorated in fresh, cool colours and kitted out with regal-looking cushions and drapes. Outside, meanwhile, you’ll find 3 swimming pools framed by smart loungers. One is still pretty new and comes with a swim-up bar. There's a softly-lit spa here, too, with a suite dedicated to couples' treatments.
When it comes to dining, you can expect a mix of classic, around-the-world dishes in the hotel’s buffet restaurant. There are also 4 themed eateries, including an Italian trattoria and an Asian joint that specialises in dishes from the Far East.

Me and my husband spent our tenth wedding anniversary here. From start to finish the hotel was amazing. We are well travelled and we spent hours researching for this trip. This hotel seemed to tick all of the boxes and we were not disappointed. We had a swim up room which was amazing. We also spent a lot of time on the beach. We didn't venture far from the hotel as there was no need to. The food was spot on. If you are considering booking this hotel then do it - you will not be disappointed. More
All the great things being said about this hotel really are true! Thank you to all the staff who made this or best holiday! The beach, location, rooms, surrounding scenery, food, swimming pools, bars, entertainment were all exceptional.More
Stayed at the Atlantica at the end of the season ( we were the last guests!) and whilst the Hotel was only about 25% full the staff made us feel very welcome and the service and quality of the food was excellent .Would go back in a heartbeat and are looking forward to our next stay .Some tips : * Don't bother with your own towels you get these every other day * wi fi bit patchy but promised better next year but you have free internet access in lobby * You get a free bottle of water in your room every day and tea and coffee making facilities * use your fridge see found drinks expensive ( although wine in the restaurant wasn't and very good)so buy some drinks from local supermarket and keep in fridgeMore

Excellent hotel with excellent staff
Just back from the Kalliston- we were the last group of guests to leave before the hotel closed for winter. The only sign that the hotel was closing was the reducing number of guests, seemed to be more staff than guests! This hotel is a Thompson Couples hotel- great for those with a grown-up family. The rooms are excellent with good sized bathrooms. The wifi coverage is amazing- we were able to use our smartphones everywhere, even on the beach! We were half board, and took up the option to have inclusive drinks (24€ pp per day). Pretty sure we were ahead of the game by the end(!). The staff are very friendly and helpful, from the management to the room cleaners. Thompson reps were in attendance at the hotel every day, which was a nice change from relying on their (UK based) telephone helpline. We booked an excursion to walk one of the gorges, but 12 hours ahead, they cancelled it. Reason?- not enough people had booked! Very disappointed with this attitude- they should have arranged a minibus and driver to take the half dozen guests to the gorge and pick them up later, rather than cancel at very short notice. Not impressed with Thompson. The slight downside at the hotel was the evening entertainment- pretty much the same stuff every night. One performer was excellent, the other must have been told he was a good singer at some stage, but was thankfully swamped by his backing music. This was made worse by the lack of local places to wander to in the evenings, it was the hotel or a bus ride to Chania. Overall an excellent holiday, and judging by the number of people on return visits, they're doing things very well. Recommended.More

Beautiful friendly hotel
My husband and I just returned from a 10 day holiday in this hotel from the 15th to the 25th of October. We travelled with Thompsons who were great, but the hotel staff were fabulous also. Nothing was too much trouble and we were upgraded to a ground floor swim up room which was the ultimate in luxury and relaxation. The food at this hotel is second to none and you can relieve your guilt by partaking in the yoga, pilates, body-stretch, tai chi and meditation classes along with a workout in the fully equipped gym. If you possibly needed anything at all it was just a phone call away to reception and your request was met within minutes. My husband and I found Manilos (I don't know if I've spelled his name correctly) particularly helpful and so kind and understanding. The town of Chania itself is absolutely wonderful with a bus running regularly right outside the hotel which only takes about 10 mins into town. The town has everything a cosmopolitan visitor would want. The other thing to avail of is the wonderful spa treatments at the hotel where the girls work their magic on mind and body. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone from old to young couples. The beach is also beautiful and you can have your feet nibbled for free by the little fish around the rocks. Don't forget to pay a visit to the little church on the hill to the right of the hotel which has lovely views. I could wax lyrical about this holiday for ever, but please just go and you won't be disappointed.More
