Me and my family of 5 were on holiday on this hotel last week... The location is perfect with the beach so close... We have a 6 year old girl and the beach was not for her... Too big waves and red flag every day... I would not recommend the beach for young children... Our hotelroom was in the beach... More

The main restaurant is between the beach and the hotel so is... More

Spending a week at Santa Marina Beach Hotel, although the beach in the title is a bit of a misnomer, as most of the hotel buildings are across the street from the beach. Food is good and plentiful. Staff is friendly, helpful, with barely sufficient knowledge of English. This is not a four star hotel, other than by Greek standards,... More

We travelled as a family of four in June 2015 and Mrs. expatinpoland and I had chosen the hotel because of the fact that there was a Kids' Club.
