For us it was fine as we planned to use it as a base to do some walks in the north-west coastal area using the local buses. Perfectly adequate INKA supermarket about 5 mins away. The beach is not ideal for children as it is not very sandy - it's better a quarter to half a mile east of the town. The sea bed is mainly large pebbles and a bit steep. Not a lot of other activities available. Quite a few restaurants to choose from, many of them specialising in fish. Not a lot of shops. The location is very attractive, as you have the dramatic Rodopou peninsula on the western side.

A lovely quiet fishing village with a pebbly beach. Some wonderful restaurants, the seafood they serve is caught daily and many of the restaurants have their own fishing boat! The land train offers a few excursions but this really is resort for those who want to relax and do nothing! I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wanted a complete chill out although I feel a week is plenty!

Kolymbari was beautiful, better than the brochures show, perfect location for the trips we wanted to do. We wanted quiet and that's what we got and it suited our needs. I loved it there and I would definitely go back, everyone we met was really friendly, be it hotel staff or locals, and if you wanted a bit more life, there are plenty of places down the coast which are a quick bus ride away and the local buses are very cheap. Brilliant holiday. Charnia is beautiful and I would tell people to not miss out on this gem of a place.

A proper town rather than tourist resort. Plenty of tavernas to choose from. Excellent bus service into Chania every 30 minutes and from here you can explore all of Western Crete.

Nothing there to be honest. Only a couple of tavernas (which were amazing tbh). Just a lack of variety. That being said, the bus into Kolimbari (West) and Chania, Platanias (east) is cheap enough and every 20-30 minutes.

Kastalia is a little isolated and some would say quiet, but for us it's perfect! There are a number of local restaurants within walking distance but a car would give you the freedom to tour about and chose your beaches and places to eat. Explore the mountains for the views is a must!

Small expensive local supermarket. We found towards the end of the holiday, only a 10 min bus ride away was a large supermarket that the ex pats used, this info was not given too us, we found it last few days.<br /> As a self catering holiday we did find it expensive, even local food was not cheap.
