If you're seeking the perfect blend of luxury, comfort and picturesque views for your next holiday, look no further than the Pilot Beach Resort Hotel in Chania. Situated along the shores of Crete, this resort offers an unforgettable stay that caters to families, couples and solo travellers :)

I stayed at this resort with a group of bloggers on a press trip with Jet2 to Chania and I can honestly say, my stay here was amazing. As a parent, when solo travelling I am always looking to see if the resort is equipped for children and families,this one was an all-boxes ticked hotel.

Family Friendly

Children can enjoy a world of adventure with the kid's club here, there is a a variety of fun and educational activities that I think are such a great mix.For fussy eaters they have the option of kid-friendly meals, you know what I am talking about - chips , plain pasta and nuggets :)

I had a walk around to see if they had a children's pool and they most definitely do. The children's area has a pool with animal-themed slides and a play park perfect for younger ones. For the older ones, they have an arcade room with computer games and a hang-out for the teenagers.

Activities and Amenities

The resort has an array of amenities for all guests to enjoy. For relaxation, there are a few swimming pools, a luxurious spa and direct access to a private sandy beach which is incredible. The beach bar is perfect to get your cocktail or iced coffee from, then head to the beach for an hour to relax and sunbathe, bliss!.

Although I didn't get a chance to try these out, they have a well-equipped gym, tennis courts and a few water sports activities as well as yoga classes, which I will definitely be doing next time we visit. The resort also offers a kid's club, which looks amazing.

Luxurious Accommodations

The resort has a wide range of accommodation options, from family rooms to luxurious suites. My room had a private balcony overlooking the beach and was just perfect. The rooms include complimentary drinks, slippers and dressing gown, toiletries and fresh bedding daily.TV in your room, hair dryer and also amazing air con!.

Delicious Food And Drink

Pilot Beach Resort takes pride in its dining with its diverse culinary offerings. They have special nights that offer traditional Cretan dishes as well as their dinner buffet.

During my stay, I tried the breakfast buffet which offers a selection of fresh fruits, pastries, cheeses and hot dishes, as well as tea, coffee and fresh juice. The evening dinner buffet offers a selection of dishes including shrimp spaghetti, aubergine curry and the most delicious cheesecakes

The staff are so friendly and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure you are happy - they are also very funny too! .

If you are staying in Chania then be sure to their local specialities like Raki and Mpougatsa :)
