Thank you for your kind words and recommendation. We are looking forward to welcoming you again!
The apartment hotel has a cosy and homey feeling with a good pool and restaurant area. The pool has a small kids area as well. There is also a beautiful garden with seating. The rooms are open to morning and evening sunshine so the apartment gets quite hot towards the evening. Airconditioning costs 40€ per week.
The Gerani area is very peaceful with a few resraurants to choose from. Platanias and Agia marina are a just a few minutes away by bus. The bus cost a few euros. The bus is also easy to use if you have a pram. Our little guy was 10 months at the time.
Proimos is near the beach, but not by the sea. The beach next to it is small rocks. There is sandy beach a few hundred meters west.
We recently returned from 2 weeks staying at Proimos apartments with our two young children ( aged 8 and 11 ). It was exactly what we had hoped for : a pretty setting away from the hustle and bustle of the big resorts. Located in Gerani, Proimos is a short two minute stroll from the local beach and has a nice pool on site. Both of our children are decent swimmers but it is worth noting that the pool is quite deep, but there is a small children's area for non swimmers. There are several mini markets located within five minutes walk. There are also several local tavernas and the main bus route into Chania is close by and easily accessible. Chania is worth a visit and it only takes half an hour by bus and costs a couple of Euros.
We stayed in the two bed apartment which is very spacious and has plenty of outdoor space to sit and relax. Whilst the apartments are basic, they are very clean and comfortable. There was a daily cleaning service and sheets and towels were changed twice a week. The kitchenette comprised two small electric rings and a microwave, so don't expect to be cooking extravagant meals, but there was a full size fridge with ice compartment which was great.
The on site taverna by the pool is a lovely setting in the evenings and the food was fantastic. There was a children's menu but also plenty of home cooked Greek dishes. Manolis and Tina were fantastic hosts. Couldn't fault them for their attentiveness and their fantastic attitude towards the children.
We were the only English guests during our stay, but that was a bonus from our perspective !
thank you for your kind wrods and review. We look forward to seeing you again. Best regards,
Perfect for those who dont like to be in the cityarea and need more silent and quiet vacation with lower budget. Rooms are not luxury but it was perfect for our 4 member family cause We dont need or want overcrowded ***** hotels. Our room was cleaned well and cleaning lady did the dishes also. Pool area bit worn but was really good still and cosy and clean. We loved it. Hotels own beach was rocky and no beds but good for snorkeling and peaceful there was plenty of beach area with sunbeds to the west and east. Not a problem to us. Very friendly and nice staff and the restaurant was a real nice surprise. Worth trying absolutely. Very good meals for a good price also. 15 - 20 mins walk to Platanias. I did a walk but smaller kids might need a bus. Few minutes short walk to bus stop where You can go to Chania or west to other cities. Mini Supermarkets and very good restaurants ( with good food and dancing ) and town of Gerani are near. It is of course a ** ~ *** hotel but it was **** to us.
thank you for your rating. Your good words are an important encouragement for all the team of Proimos Apartments to continue doing their work as best as they can. Small hotels like us with practically very little budget for advertising are based on the guests' good reviews to continue to operate. Thank you again for your support!
The hotel has a beautiful garden and nice pool area. The room we stayed in was spacious, with little kitchen and living area and a bathroom. And had two teraces, what a luxury! The room was clean and was cleaned daily. The cleaner also made some pretty sculptures out of the towels, which was really nice.
The hotel is situated in a quiet little village, but all you need is there (bars, other restaurants, markets). And the walk to Platanias is not that long. The beach is only few hundred meters from the hotel and the nearby hotels rent sunbeds.
The food at the restaurant might very well be the best in the area. The specialties change daily, so you never have to eat the same thing twice (unless you want to). Don't be afraid to try more "traditional" holiday dishes; their pizza is a piece of heaven!
The staff is super friendly, and will definately make you feel welcomed. I can recommend this hotel for everyone looking for a peacefull place with heartfelt staff.
thank you for your kind comments which give us a lot of encouragement to continue our work at Proimos Apartments. We also enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to welcoming you again.
Charming, clean, excellent staff and ever so friendly owner.
Great view from our room (apratment 6), with 2 balconys, making it possible to sit outside both in the morgning and evening without being baked :-)
The Buildings / roomes are a bit old, but very charming and kept very clean.
The pool area is excellent, with a nice Little bar/resturant.
Your can walk to platanias Agaia Marina in 25 minutes. Or take the bus and be there in 10 :-)
I am really hoping that we will be able to come back to this little gem!!
thank you for your comments and recommendation of Proimos Apartments on behalf of the entire team working here. Your comments give us a lot of encouragement to continue our work in a business which is very competitive. We would be very happy to see you back at the hotel and we wish you and your family all the best!
