Designer good looks and a great dining scene are just a couple of the Atlantica Kalliston Resort & Spa’s high points.
This hotel clinched a 2014 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice award for luxury hotels. Interiors are modern, the pool area is smart, and the restaurants have a high-end design feel.
Location-wise, this property has scooped a prime spot on Glaros Beach. Local shops are within walking distance, and the historical town of Chania is less than 10 minutes’ drive away.

All the positive reviews are spot on !
Just back from the Kalliston and absolutely delighted with everything the hotel had to offer. Friendly staff, lovely beach, great food, but it was the unexpected little things that make the Kalliston stand out from the crowd, such as a "goodbye" champagne and nibbles meeting with the hotel management; the free drinks and ice creams that were delivered to you on the beach each afternoon; the lovely gift pack on the last day of soap and oils; the management coming to wave goodbye when our coach departed; the drinks and cold towels when you arrived; the policy of customers not being allowed to reserve sunbeds with towels (and followed up by the staff); the visibility and involvement of the senior management in day to day hotel activities,,,,,,,,,,,etc etc We stayed for 2 weeks from Aug 15th in room 216, which faces the beach and had a great view of the garden. Strange bathroom design having a glass wall (with curtain) and a glass door ! Most days were spent on the beach which was clean and there was always a sunbed free, no matter what time of day. For 3 days it was really windy which was fine as the waves were really fun to swim in and the wind kept you cool. Chania is only 20mins away on the bus and we ate there for 3 nights just for a change. There are some lovely bars and restaurants just away from the main drag if you want a quieter evening. Entertainment in the hotel was just at the right level and the Players duo really were passionate about ensuring you had a good evening. The beach parties and music were again geared for all customers by not being too noisy or intrusive. Volleyball on the beach kept me busy and the gym is well equipped if you feel the need ! Wifi reception was not great but that didn't really bother us. Food was excellent in the main buffet restaurant. We also ate in the Italian and found the food to be only ok, but yet again the service was exceptional. Special mention to Andrei, the waiter, and Jo from Thomson, but all the team stood out as being so well trained and focused on customer satisfaction. We never go back to the same place twice; but that will change now. Thank you for making it a really special 2 weeks. T and K PS. don't go to Santorini on the hottest day of the year,,,,!!!!More
We recently stayed for 10 nights at this superb hotel. On our arrival we were greeted by friendly staff with a glass of cool juice and a cold hand towel to help freshen up and then shown to our room. We were not disappointed. We had a sea view and the room was perfect. We explored the hotel and beach and found the following: Hotel excellent, restaurant excellent, staff wonderful, helpful and friendly in all areas!!! Sandy beach and sea was warm what more could you ask. Entertainment good, we attended a lot of the programmes including the Greek Garden Party, watching the chef, management team etc dancing was lovely. Cocktail evening was a nice way to meet the management team. Anyway a fabulous holiday from start to finish. A very big thank you to all the management and staff from Mr and Mrs Guest room 203 ð More

Fantlantica Classiston hotel
If you want a relaxing, romantic and luxury hotel just book it! We are celebrate our 20 years of marriage and it was the right hotel. The beach is clean and and the sand is soft and free from stone and stuff. Water temperature is about 15 degrees more than we are used to in Norway :-) I miss the opertunity to rent a windsurfing board but there have not been enough wind yet. Just a small bris. And the internet could be faster. Big variety where you are in the area.More

From the time we arrived to the time we got on the coach to leave, this hotel was fantastic! After staying in various Atlantica hotels, this one is head and shoulders above the rest. We upgraded to a sea view swim up from (121) which was perfect and also to all inclusive. We are so glad we did because the drinks are all branded and the cocktails were delicious. The staff were attentive to all your needs and all nothing was too much trouble. It was my birthday on the Saturday, I was surprised with a birthday cake while having a meal in the Greek a la carte. The food was fantastic ( being a fussy eater ) there was a good variety of quality ingredients. Marie-Anne was very friendly and gave great advice with the menu. The management staff were around at all times of the day and were very friendly. The Players ( singers ) were mostly the entertainment at the hotel and sang a variety of different genres. The Traditional Greek night was a lot of fun and encouraged the holiday makers to join in. My one and only grip and it is a small one is that when you are invited to the Managers Cocktail night, the bar is a little chaotic and it's difficult to get a drink. This is truly the best hotel we have ever stayed in and will be returning.More
