Service and hotel both mezmerizing.Very clean.Warm-hearted people!we stayed there for 4days on a high season and even though the fact that the hotel was full the service was excellent !apartments suitable for families with kids but also for couples.kitchen FULLY equipped.even the best chef would not miss anything in this kitchen.the pool was clean and in the right temperature all the time!also for those that didn t want a swim in the pool tha main beaches of platanias are few metres away.the hostess miss marrianne was there for every information that we needed. Trully professional and on the same time kind and warm-hearted. If anyone search for a hotel to stay on chania(platanias),short termed or long-termed, this is the one for him.A stay worth to be remembered.I wish all my stays would be like this.many compliments !
We had a wonderful holiday staying at Pelagos Apartments. Crete was a magical place. If you have a car then you have access to fantastic beaches, wonderful mountains and as much history as you want. Marianne was so helpful, she is a font of knowledge with information about excursions, the best supermarkets and great restaurants. We did eat out but also ate in quite often because our views frrom the balcony were so lovely. The food was so fresh and full of flavour, strawberries, cucumber and tomatoes were amazing.
Our favourite beaches were Falasarna and Elifonisi but the water everywhere is beautiful, crystal clear and an amazing blue. Hania is close by and is a lovely old Venetian port. I would also recommend the Botanical gardens if you don't mind walking up and down a hill. The walk down Sumaria gorge is as good as all the guide books say but we were glad we had taken light walking boots.
It was so easy to walk down into Platanias to do the shopping or go out to a restaurant in the evening or take a dip in the sea. It's not the best beach but the water is lovely and there is a sandy bottom and plenty of cafes to enjoy a drink by the water. I would thoroughly recommend the villa and the area to anyone, especilly if you want to be a little away from the clubs and nightlife.
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 :)
