We're a couple in our early twenties who were looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday. We spent 9 nights at Pelagos and found just that.
- Apartments are clean, modern, well maintained and fit for purpose.
- Marianne was very accommodating and helpful. She also booked our transfers to and from the airport.
- Great balcony views.
- Free WiFi.
- A great selection of nearby restaurants and things to do.
- As non-smokers, we were a bit annoyed that smoke from adjacent balconies found it's way into our room quite easily if our balcony doors were open.
- Although located close to the town, the walk back after dark was unlit. Although it didn't cause us any issues, some people may feel uncomfortable on their own.
Overall, the negatives are quite small and we'd still rate our experience at a 5* one.

We stayed here one week in May and had an excellent time.
Our apartment was great: clean, spacious, well equipment and with a sea view terace and balcony it had everything you needed. Marianne was a great host giving nice ideas for day trips. We really recommend this place for families and couples who travel individually and are looking for a quite, value for money place in the Chania area.
We spent two weeks at the Pelagos Apartments last August. We chose it on the strength of the great reviews. This place is just amazing. We have never stayed anywhere so clean or well kept. Marianne and Manolis take huge pride in these apartments, without ever seeming precious about them. They are really lovely, kind, friendly people, who do everything they possibly can to ensure your stay is perfect. Each apartment has its own terrace and 1st floor balcony. They are huge inside and very well equipped. We stayed with our two children in a 1 bed apartment (there is a lovely comfortable sofa bed which we just left out because the room was so big) We had plenty of room, and was the nicest apartment we have ever rented. The views are spectacular, the best in Platanias, and you are a nice distance from the main tourist area. The loudest thing we could hear were the crickets.
There are an abundance of fantastic restaurants within a 5-10 min walk, and was cheap to eat out (£35-40for a family of 4 with wine/beer)
The apartments have a lovely shared pool, but we had it to ourselves most of the time. We had no noise whatsoever from other guests, and we really felt like we were 'away from it all'
I can't rave about Pelagos enough, i challenge you to find anywhere cleaner! and we hope to return next summer. Thank you Marianne & Manolis :)
My husband and I have just returned from Crete staying at Pelagos Holiday apartments in Platanias. What a wonderful time we had. Crete is a beautiful island with so much to see and do. The apartments are clean and spacious with a fantastic view of the bay from bedroom and lounge rooms. Marianne and Manolis are an amazing couple. Nothing is too much trouble. Marianne is always around with a smile and a cheerful word. We can't wait to go back.
Our family enjoyed Pelagos Holiday Apartments very much. They were very clean, modern and spacious. We also felt like the kitchen was well equipped, with modern appliances, bed was comfortable and satellite tv suffice. On top of this, the owners were very kind and helpful. We would defiantly stay there again.
