This hotel is very big. With three different sections this is the place to bring the kids. You can go to the beach, stay at the family pool or enjoy a nice day at the relaxing pool located on the other side of the road. Recommended for families.

Hotel next to the bus stop, right next to the beach. I lived in the building on the other side of the road, better for me - closer to the swimming pool. Nice service, good food, always something to try. Everybody speaks english. Small bathroom. I had problems with WiFi in the room, but there is a satisfactory WiFi next... More

As a family we love to find authentic places to stay whether we are on a city break or a beach holiday and Santa Marina is a truly authentic Cretan hotel. Special mention goes to the many members of staff in the hotel bars and restaurants but I would comment that the head receptionist lets down the entire hotel team.... More

The hotel is split into three parts. I wish they'd told us that when we arrived. No explanation where things are or a map, you're left to your own devices which isn't ideal when 2/3 of the hotel is across a main road and we only discovered another pool and restaurant on day 2. We were in the 'middle' part... More

Lovely 51 bedroom hotel. Room fine, food excellent. Location fine with numerous bars and restaurants to suit everyone. At no extra cost we were treated to an a la carte meal on the beach. The staff were polite and friendly. We had a very good holiday and feel a little guilty about complaining. Our complaint was that we had paid... More
