One of the most child-friendly hotels in Crete, the Hotel Ammos is perfect for families. Like an island within an island, this is the Ammos Hotel, one of the nicest on Crete. This small elegant, yet very affordable resort is ideally situated on a fine sandy beach, well away from the bustle of the city and yet only five km from the magnificent Venetian harbour and the old town of Chania. Unbeatable location, smart design, attention to detail, instinctive hospitality, great dining at the beachfront restaurant and a very personalised approach are only a few of the ingredients
which make ammos hotel a trully special place.
The hotel underwent an extensive renovation and the result is a contemporary, fresh and vibrant seafront retreat. The archetypal white-washed surfaces (the famous trademark of Greek islands) are charmingly blended with raw, unvarnished wood, corian worktops, cool light fittings, indigenous ceramic art, colourful Marimekko fabrics and trendy Italian tiling.
Crete is a land of astonishing diversity and ammos hotel is, by all means, the ideal base for your excursions. That is off course if you ever get tired of having the sparkling water at your feet.
Rates are from 95 euros to 220 euros per room.
There is bus service to Chania every 15 minutes, the 30
studios/3 suites are perfectly situated at a
10 meters distance from the sparkling
Mediterranean sea on
one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in
Chania, at the bay of Agioi Apostoli. The beach has received the Blue Flag award by the EU. All the studios/suites are
built and tastefully decorated with respect to
the traditional island architecture but with a
modern colorful flair and offer a fully
equipped kitchenette, air-conditioning,
bathroom en suite (with bathtub), direct
telephone system, radio, safety box, TV and
moreover a balcony/veranda where our guests
enjoy the sunset over the Cretan sea.
Along with the beautiful beach the Hotel Ammos is
proud of its cozy and relaxing atmosphere, its
brand new swimming pool and children's pool,
large and well-kept gardens, vast parking
spaces, entertainment area and an artistically
decorated reception, which leads onto a TV
lounge, Internet access room and bar.
At Ammos hotel you can also
find one of the finest restaurants in town
where our guests can enjoy the most famous
dishes of Cretan and international cuisine -
emphasizing on local fresh ingredients - in an
idyllic setting by the water.
Simplicity, freshness, seasonal ingredients brought from local markets (organic where available), old fashioned Cretan and Greek recipes with a rediscovered homey touch (a totally redesigned menu for 2009), unpretentious but smart presentation, friendly prices and service with a smile. The location is hard to find elsewhere: right on the beach front, food and drinks are accompanied by the sounds of the sea and dramatic sunsets. Kitchen stays open all day long. We start early in the morning with a choice of 3
breakfast options and we continue serving till late into the night (the restaurant also caters for our guests at the pool and beach area)
