Stayed here for three nights on our trip to Crete. We had one of the superior studios with balcony facing the pool and sea, the view was nice as well as the location of the hotel. It was very convenient access to the main road and all the restaurants but still very quiet and peaceful. The room was big and... More

The location was great just a little stroll and you're on the main strip in Agia Marina and then cross the road and you're on the beach! 10-15 minutes by car to Chania. Good local variety of restaurants and bars. The pool could do with a clean but it's a great size and the view from the garden is beautiful!... More

At times it felt a little like the British TV show Benidorm, but overall it was lovely. Very relaxing, great location (literally 5min walk to a clean beach), the pool was beautiful, some of the loungers need to be replaced but I really don't have a complaint. I stayed with my mum for a week, we ate the buffet breakfast... More

A little family hotel which is very friendly with spacious rooms, local cooking, varied meals, a large pool with attached bar. Drinks excellent and not expensive. For those looking for a place to relax by the pool and take advantage of a clean, sandy beach within short walking distance this is perfect. The bus stop is very near with access... More

We arrived to Aghia Marina and phoned the hotel. Marianna told us that there was a problem and met us at Minerva Beach Hotel. My husband had a look and was horrified. Dirty, untidy and construction materials left unsupervised. When we arrived at Minerva Dore we were extremely upset with the hotel's overall condition. It need cleaning, it looked abandoned... More
