The area is close to the historical and archaeological sites and in ideal location from which to explore Western Crete. The friendliness and Cretan hospitality of our hotel stuff can be very helpful for the arrangement of car rentals and excursions to worth visiting places.

The impressive Monastery of Gouverneto also known as the Monastery of “John the Hermit” stands close to our place and just a little further you can visit the Monastery of Catholicon which is beautifully built in the depths of a wild gorge and can be viewed by all.

Beautiful resort, awesome pool, and great food! Great location too, about a 5 min drive from Stavros beach. I would definitely recommend staying here and will hopefully be back again soon!

Very convenient location from the airport, right next to the sea, featuring a really nicely sized swimming pool for both kids and adults, very good bar/restaurant and an adjacent taverna, overall very well maintained with nice gardens and a really decent playground. If you want relative tranquility and away from a city buzz, that's the place for you. There is no beach there really, however a very very nice one is within 3-4 minutes drive in Stavros, which also has plenty of tavernas/restaurants to choose from and two small supermarkets. Definitely need to rent a car to get around if you want to see places. Airport is also 15 mins by car! Overall excellent experience. Don't choose the adjacent Blue Beach hotel over Zorbas; Zorbas is way superior in all aspects, esp. for children.

Zorbas Beach Apartments is an amazing place to stay and enjoy Chania! The staff are wonderful and extremely helpful, they really go out of their way to welcome you! The food is amazing at the restaurant, and the views are spectacular! If you don't want a very touristy area, I highly recommend the beautiful secluded beaches surrounding the hotel.

Description of announcement was not correct. Place is not as good as pictures and description. There is nothing special about this place. The beachs around are fantastic. Swimming is ok. Cleaning is not very good.

I am 35 years old and I live in Chania, my hometown. I find this place amazing 'cause one can find numerous things to do and many places to explore at any time of the year! That's why I decided, after having finished my Master and Doctoral studies, to return back home and welcome people from all over the world to Zorbas Beach Hotel and give them the chance to find out the beauty of this town by themselves.
My goal is to do my 'personal best' in order to provide delightful and comfortable stay in a hospitable environment to our guests. You will find me at Hotel Zorbas Beach in Stavros of Chania. You can contact me at (EMAIL HIDDEN)
