About Vassilis & Revekka
World travelers in winter and great hosts in summer.
Vassilis & Revekka purchased this Hotel in 1983
Why Vassilis & Revekka chose Platanias
Family run vacation budget lodging, ideal for relaxing holidays by the beach, which provides the luxury of paying less on accommodation and spending more on fun, while on holidays in western Crete. Conveniently located on the edge of the historical seaside village of Maleme, Summer Lodge, an attractive, family run vacation lodging is a fine example of traditional Greek architecture. Only 5 Kms from the centre of Platanias and 16 Kms west of Hania town, is the ideal starting point for the visitors requiring a wide variety of sandy beaches, water sport activities, peaceful countryside walks, or interesting visits in archaeological and historical sites.
What makes this Hotel unique
With the tremendous advantage of being no more than 400 meters by footpath to the long, quiet beach of Maleme, mostly sandy but also pebbly and a number of local restaurants as well as a supermarket and other shops, the situation couldn't be more convenient and car hire, although useful is not essential, since bus service is frequent. Set around a pretty, flower filled courtyard and orange grove, our pleasantly light, well kept guesthouse has 15 furnished and nicely decorated bedrooms. They all have en suite shower rooms, wc and wash hand basin and are equipped with fridge, and safety deposit box. Accommodation is available in single, double, twin or triple bedded rooms to meet all requirements, with maid service and linen/towel change provided twice a week. Most of the rooms have shared balconies or open terraces whilst others on the ground floor, that face onto the gardens, have a patio area and plenty of outdoor space in which to relax in. The simple, traditional interiors are cool and a wall fitted fan in each bedroom adds an extra degree of comfort during the warm summer days. The superb 10m x 5m pool is surrounded by sun terraces and is supplied with patio furniture and sun lounges. Beyond the pool and shaded by trees and a pergola is a pretty terrace with free Internet Wi-Fi connection, where breakfast is served any time you please at the additional charge of 4 €/person and a small bar serving cool drinks in the hot summer evenings.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.

Pas d'eau chaude !
Le titre résume tout : la chambre serait agréable (bonne literie) mais quelle ne fut pas notre surprise le soir en rentrant d'une longue journée de balade, de ne pas pouvoir prendre de douche !! Le chauffage solaire est insuffisant à assurer assez d'eau chaude pour tout le monde. Et le lodge n'était pas plein !! Nous avons du prendre l'avion le lendemain, sans avoir pu prendre de douche. Pas très confortable...
Hôtes très accueillants et sympathiques. Chambre correcte avec un balcon agréable. Belle piscine et jolie cour extérieure. Un peu trop proche de la route et chambre non climatisée. Proche de la plage, un peu isolé des commerces (mieux vaut être véhiculé)

Un séjour "traditionnel" et des hôtes accueillants
Un cadre très joli et assez rétro tout comme le logement (comme cela est précisé dans l'annonce). Un accueil parfait et attentionné.
On regrettera l'utilisation de la piscine que de 8h à seulement 19h même si cela est pour des raisons d'hygiène et de sécurité évidentes. Il manque aussi une petite bouilloire dans le logement car certes l'établissement vous propose un petit déjeuner continental le matin pour un petit prix mais vous devrez vous plier aux horaires.
En résumé, on est loin des gros complexes hôteliers récents de La Canée, mais c'est pas ce que l'on cherche en allant à Summer Lodge: la tranquillité, la convivialité et les rencontres sont au rendez-vous et cela devient rare. Et tout ça à un prix raisonnable. Merci pour tout.

HANIA town (also spelt as Chania) is the connection point whether you arrive by plane or boat.
