Children at Avra Imperial Hotel stay and eat for free

Avra Imperial Hotel introduces a naturally beautiful and unspoiled part of Crete and the wider Chania area to family holidaymakers, within easy reach of Chania city and the International Airport of Chania. At Avra Imperial parents will have the opportunity to appreciate the exquisitely spoiling life and facilities, while there’s a crèche and mini club for the little ones including plenty of activities for older children and teenagers.

At Avra Imperial Hotel your children’s well-being and safety is our top priority. Children under 12 years old stay for free in their parents room, depending on room or suite capacity. Furthermore, kids eat for free in the Half-Board and Full-Board meal plan packages.

Making sure that you can relax knowing that your children are in safe hands, we’ve teamed up with the childcare specialists, Worldwide Kids, who follow Ofsted standards and strict standard operating procedures to ensure your children receive the highest standard of care all whilst carrying out exciting and unique planned activities. What’s even more, all staff are highly qualified and all hold an up to date DBS (police) check.

In our fully equipped crèche and kids club an array of interesting and fun-filled activities for different age groups of children are offered, such as arts and crafts, sports, cooking, water sports, swimming, treasure hunts and games. All activities are planned by Worldwide Kids, are age appropriate and displayed on a timetable on a weekly basis.

We strongly advise pre-booking childcare services to avoid disappointment due to limited space and strict ratios. Childcare pre-bookings are available at:
