Spent a week here in April when things were generally very quiet. The hotel had just opened for the season and it took a day or two to get things under way. Whilst the buffet every evening was well stocked, some of the items were cold and the selection of deserts variable. The room was most definitely showing signs of... More

After searching hard to find a suitable hotel for my partner and I, we chose this hotel due to it's perfect location and good value. During our stay we really enjoyed ourselves in the beautiful surrounding area but also when we were in the hotel. The food for an All Inclusive hotel, I have to say is one of the... More

My wife and I have just returned from an 8 day holiday with Travelsphere in Crete to explore and view both the spring flowers and places of archaeological interest. We were based at this hotel for seven nights where we were very comfortably looked after in every way. With a beautiful background setting, excellent menu choices and first class service... More

Stayed with very elderly mother and the hotel staff could not have been more welcoming. The hotel is split into two parts, separated by a road - underpass available which no one seemed to bother to use - and the main element is situated right next to the sandy beach, providing a very attractive setting. If you enjoy tranquillity, the... More

This may will be our third time at santa marina. It is a great hotel,good value for money and on a beatiful beach. We will try the new wing rooms now although i strongly recommend the pool view or the beach front rooms.

We visited this hotel during June of 2014. The location is ideal for summer vacations on the beach. Excellent food, very clean rooms and very lovely staff. The weather was excellent and the beach in front of the hotel was very clean with crystal water. We are planing to visit this hotel again this year.

This was a nice hotel right on a good beach. The area was well maintained and clean, the beach was good for swimming. This part of the beach was more quiet than other parts and it was a good thing. No crowds on the beach. Room was ok and clean. The pool of this hotel located on the other side... More

We had a great week in beginning of October. The hotel,seperated in two parts is fabulus,with polite and kind staff,good service and nice food in both the main and in the a la carte restaurants. We chose a garden view room,near the pool area which was elegant and very clean. A real value for money.
