Fantastic hotel situated only 20 m from the beach at Agia Marina, the somewhat quiet neighbour to the more busy Platanias strip. The hotel operates only 52 rooms with a +16 policy which means that the atmosphere is tranquil making sure that the guests receive the relaxed vacation they are opting for once choosing Santa Marine Plaza. We booked the... More

The location of the hotel is good in the Agia Marina Village with plenty of nice restaurants and shops near-by. The hotel is by the beach, and has a nice pool. Rooms are spacious and very clean, as well as the public areas. Every room has at least a partial sea-view. The concept of welcoming guest only over 16 years... More

All in all, we had a great stay at the hotel, but we expected more from the 5 stars and high price. First of all, we started with a disappointment as actually described by a few previous reviewers: We had reserved a room with balcony and sea view, but received a ground-floor room with a terrace and view to the...

The staff is very friendly and wants to help. Breakfast (hot and cold) is very good. The hotel has a nice swimming pool, enough beds around it and is located right at the beach. We had a perfect holiday here!! There are a few rooms located close to the street. This was not to our liking. We asked for a... More

Very nice. Only 4 Euros for a coffee! I asked for water at breakfast and they told me to get up and get it myself! Super. The pool is quite and nice. Beach area is super nice and clean. Laundry service cost 65 euros for one load, but they did an excellent job folding my underwear.

For travellers having experienced a true 5star hotel service, Santa Marina Plaza would not be recommended. Lack of professionalism and impersonal service approach are few to describe the level of hotel services in Santa Marina Plaza. Through our 8 night stay we have experienced various failures that justify our bitter experience; just to name some: wiping the restaurant while customers... More

The friendly and professional staff; the hotel location - directly on the beach; the well maintained rooms and grounds, plus the excellent cuisine made our stay memorable. Thank you all for a making our stay a treat! I recommended the Santa Marina Plaza for its service, high standards, location and the warmth of the hospitality extended.

It is a good hotel and the majority of the staff very polite, friendly and efficient but our stay was spoilt because we didn't use the hotel safe in our room. My partner had over £200 sterling stolen from the pocket of a garment hanging in the wardrobe. Even if you do use the safe, it is not very nice... More
