Fodor's Expert Review Ammos Hotel

Irakli Avgoula, Glaros Beach, Chania, Crete, 73100, Greece Fodor's Choice

Quite simply, one of the best family hotels in Greece, this is the classic Greek seaside hotel brought up-to-date with a chic and funky twist, where Cycladic and Scandinavian design references throughout create an atmosphere that is both modern and timeless. Rooms, in white with primary color accents, are a good size with clean lines, and the sandy beach is just steps away. The simple pleasures are elevated to an art form here—thoughtful staff, delicious food, and an extraordinary attention to detail complete the picture. People return year after year because they just do everything so right here.
