We spent 6 days at Iolida Beach during August. We had a double apartment with sea view. The apartment was nice, big and clean. But the problems we had were with the service. Upon arrival we were told that there was noone to help us with the luggages and we should carry them ourselves, we explained we have the kid... More

We were booked into iolida beach hotel via our agency ving after they recommended us the hotel as its 5 stars, first of all this is not a 5 star hotel. This is a 2 star level hotel. We were given possibly the worst apartment/room in the hotel it was overlooking the street (view of a car rental place) and... More

We stayed in main building near the beach front and restaurant. Friendly staff and cleaning was good and done daily. Furnitures are old and could do with minor renovation, e.g changing rusty parts and nailing back the wooden planks, etc. Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant had a good variety. The bar mixes drinks well too. My only issue was... More

We had a room in the second building, which was ok. Not too far to walk to the beach and to the restaurant, and quiet during the night. An advantage was to have a supermarket only a few steps from our room. Our room was clean, and had enough space. The beach and the swimming pools were great! We had... More

If you are looking for a good family friendly hotel in Agia Marina Crete, Iolida Beach is a good choice. The rooms are nice, but the decorations is old. I remember the same decorations the first year the hotel opened. It has a small, but nice swimming pool. But you can have a problem finding a sunbed during high season.... More
