Easy-living meets dazzling seafront location at this mini-resort, only five km from the Venetian harbour of Chania, Crete’s prettiest town. Situated on a sandy beach and completely secluded from busy roads, Ammos hotel is literally pied dans l’eau. Friendly staff (they have all been part of the Ammos family for years) delivers fresh smoothies and cocktails, summery salads and souvlaki, straight to your sun-bed. Rooms-most of them come with soothing ocean views-are scattered around fragrant gardens of herbs, local cacti and succulents.
A blend of summer informality, family-friendly facilities, unexpected design and great service, Ammos is one of those places that put you instantly at ease.
