This is actually a very nice hotel on a touristy stretch of coast. It's quiet with a great beachfront location and is tucked away from the main city while still in walking distance. Very relaxing. Could be a great location to base yourself for a week to see surrounding sights. Or, just relax on the lovely patio overlooking the sea... More

Small very well run family hotel, located directly at the beach. We booked for three nights and stayed a week. Everything was perfect, the hotel, the bar and the restaurant. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The location is ideal to explore Western Crete by car and there are some great beaches in the area - Balos, Elafonisi and... More

The hotel is right on the beach - beautiful exterior design; great atmosphere; great breakfast (7 euro/person/day - we got some discount later on) and hotel staff members are extremely kind and friendly. The restaurant (Maria Beach restaurant) offers a variety of great food and during our stay of 4 days, we had our lunch there every day. It's also... More

My wife and I returned home last weekend after spending time in France and Greece. This location was one of the highlights of our trip. Our only mistake was not spending more time there... The facility is beautiful and quiet. Far enough from large cities to avoid the hustle and bustle but close enough for day trips. We had a... More

First stayed at Maria Beach in 2003 and visited about 5 more times since then. Favourite small family-run place to stay and relax at Kissamos. Excellent service, child friendly, with a bar and a restaurant just at the seafront. Ideal to relax and enjoy peace and quiet or to explore west Crete. Amazing food at the restaurant!

Maria Beach studios is right on Kissamos beach, 10 minutes walking from tavernas and restaurants. Our rooms was clean and quiet and had two balcons with sea view. The owners friendly and english speaking. Free beach accomodation for guests. Easy distance from Chania and to reach the fantastic beaches of Balos and Falassarna. Credit card accepted.

3 nights at Maria Beach rooms. We didn't stay in the hotel part, but the rooms are good, clean and right on the beach. There are several good tavernas, but try not to order the 'fish of the day' without checking what it is and how much per kilo. We ended up paying 70 euros, three times as much as... More

Despite the complex was sold out with cheerful groups of French and German trekking amateurs, families with children and couple as ours with our two friends, the well organized family of the Maria Beach handled all these type of customers with incredible kindness and flexibility to our extremely different needs. Nothing seemed too much trouble to them as we could... More

We had a wonderful time during our week at Maria Beach. We'd had a nasty experience with Ryanair (haven't we all?) and were feeling a bit stressed but as we arrived and saw the beach before us we soon started to relax. The surroundings are lovely. The beach is in a bay and feels very private. I'd certainly recommend going... More
