well worth a visit
this is a great hotel, there is a huge range of food available, pretty much something for everyone, the rooms are as shown in the brochure, clean, comfortable and well appointed, the staff are all very good (and there's a lot of them) both pools are very clean and the swim up bar is an excellent addition. I would highly recommend this hotel, my wife particularly enjoyed the massage on the beach (â¬65, but she liked it) one small personal drawback for me was some of the nightly local entertainment, ear plugs at the ready.More
Amazing Beachfront Hotel
We stayed there in June/July 2014 and although we seldom return to any hotel we have visited, we will make an exception in this case. From the food, entertainment, cleanliness, beach and locality you could not fault it. Easy access into Chania from the bus-stop just outside the hotel and if you are staying half-board then we sometimes swopped dinner for lunch and then found a restaurant in Chania in the evening..So many to choose from and a must if you are considering staying at the Kalliston, Chania Airport is far better than the main island airport at Herakloin and only a short transfer..More

Amazing hotel and staff
A very later review for this amazing hotel I went last year in september the hotel is amazing the staff cant do enough for you. I had a massage which was great and the spa is lovley. Really enjoyed the food we went all inclusive and i believe it works out better and drinks coffees etc all add up. i loved it that you could sit by the pool but dip in the sea as you are right on the beach. I would go back to this hotel but with a different person!More

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
