To start with, I want to clarify that the beachside hotel is only part of the whole hotel. One section has indeed a seaview, but you have to cross a street via a bridge to get to the beachside. The beachside is only available through Scandinavian travel agencies. We booked through Ving and were there end of August, beginning of... More

This is a very modern hotel with pool and friendly staff. Do be careful of the name as the hotel is called Iolida "beach" we assumed when we booked that the hotel was on the beach side however the hotel has two parts, one on the beach and one on the other side of the road connected by a causeway/bridge....

Great hotel for family vacation. It is better not to opt for the all-inclusive or half-board since the food quality is below average. Although we paid for it, we used to go out for dinner. The wi-fi connection was poor as well. The location of the hotel is great since there is a super-market next to it. Our room and... More

We visited this hotel with my family in June 2013 only to discover the air conditioning was faulty. We normally would persevere without it though the room felt like a sauna and thats no exaggeration. We were told that their were no rooms available. After a bit of complaining they managed to relocate us in another room. Apart from this... More

Iolida Beach is located in Agia Marina, 10km from Chania Old Town and around 20 km from airport. The hotel is located in two buildings - first one with reception is situated close to the beach, second on the other side of street. Buildings are connected together by a bridge above the street. Swimming pools are close to each building... More

Iolida beach hotel was very nice. Clean room, quick service, very kind staff members and value for money stay. It combines sea side (Chania bay) with pools. Fantastic sea view opposite Agioi Theodori island. My family has spent a week there and had a very pleasant time. I'm planning to book again in this hotel.

Traveling in Crete and especially during July and August is not an easy matter. Sometimes the traffic or the overloaded infrastructure can make a travellers life complicated. When somebody wants to see things also in the vicinity and not stay all day in his hotel, than certainly many things are more important than a very good hotel. Iolida is indeed... More

In some of brochures this hotel have changed even its name for IOLIDA BEACH RESORT HOTEL. Hearing it you may expect; spacious hotel with a nice, long and rather wide beach. No, no! You are wrong! There is only app. 70 metres long narrow strip of sand and another strip of grass between pool and the beach. Imagine for the... More

I was holiday with my family, and we don't really mind paying extra to have room as near as possible to the beach. Isn't that the whole point of a beach hotel? But it was not an option in this hotel. We were told all beach side rooms are fully booked by certain travel agencies for the whole season, so... More
