Great hotel very close to the beach
Great hotel which was very close to the beach with excellent in-house restaurant and local tavernas. The staff were also excellent and could not do enough for us, including cooking a meal when we arrived at 10.00pm

Excellent value family run hotel
This is an excellent family-run hotel, in immaculate condition, with friendly staff and good facilities. Access to most of the rooms involves a number of steps, so not ideal for the mobility impaired traveller. Additional (very reasonable) charges apply for air conditioning or internet access. The wi-fi network was a bit weak and erratic. I only wish I could have prolonged my stay by another week or two ...

Great Price & Great Space.
This place is perfect for a couple, family or friends. You will definitely need to rent a car to enjoy Crete. This hotel will put you 45 min drive, an hour and a half and 2 from the 3 best beaches in Crete. You will also be 10 minuets from Platanias which has a great strip of restaurants and shopping. Make sure to buy olive oil on the road from the farmers, best olive oil in the world is from Crete. The food at the hotel is amazing, the cook is excellent. I plan to return to Crete and I would stay at Futura again. The grounds aren't suitable for the elderly or people needing a wheel chair. Lots of stairs up and down to move through the property, it is also difficult when carrying your own luggage up to your room.
