I'm not one for writing reviews but I felt this hotel earned it! The hotel is the cleanest I've stayed in, the people couldn't be more helpful and the area is perfect for relaxation but close to amenities. Upon arrival we were encouraged to relax, the hotel is so welcoming. The staff go the extra mile to make your stay... More

This was our first visit to Crete and was not intended to be a beach or pool-side holiday; the weather was atrocious for the fist couple of days, so that was just as well. We were originally booked in to the Santa Marina Beach hotel, just down the road and belonging to the same group, but were moved as the... More

We really enjoyed our week at this adults only hotel. The room and bathroom were very nice. We had to empty the mini-bar to get our own drinks into it - perhaps an empty fridge would be better. I cant imagine many people pay mini-bar prices when there is a supermarket next door. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. Lunchtime... More

We have recently returned from our second consecutive annual holiday at Santa Marina Plaza and couldn't fault anything. All of the staff were always friendly and helpful and we look forward to seeing them all again in 2015. The only thing we would prefer is free wifi!

We spent a week in Santa Marina Plaza Hotel and it was really enjoyable place to stay. Just by the beach and seaview from your window and balcony. The room was nice and clean. And the breakfast was so good! The girl making the fresh orange juice was really busy during hole breakfast :).

Enjoyed 3 nights here with my wife and was impressed with the hotel, the beach and the pool. The adults only policy is great for a couple wanting a chilled relax break. The room was decent, clean and spacious and the breakfast buffet was huge, all in all a lovely place to stay! Would recommend it!
