If you want somewhere nice and quiet, off the main drag but close to town then this is the place for you. IF ANYONE HAS RATED THIS HOTEL LESS THAN VERY GOOD DON'T BELIEVE IT! We arrived in the dark at midnight and were immediately told they had kept the restaurant open for us if we were hungry. When we... More

Much Internet search and review reading had been carried on in our family this year in order to decide where to spend our vacation. Finally we've chosen Crete and Blue Marine Resort and it has proven to be one of the best decision we had taken in a long time :) We arrived at the Heraklion airport late in the... More

Just back yesterday from a really lovely week at the Blue Marine in Crete. Facilities are great, food is varied and plentiful and beach across the road(via a safe underground tunnel and hotel lift) is perfect for snorkelling. The 'animation' entertainment team were first class and I strongly recommend the mini disco for kids (up to about age 8) -... More

Kids. Kids. Kids. Kids. Kids. Kids EVERYWHERE! This hotel is nothing like its website makes it out to be. First off, this hotel claims to be five star. I don't know what stars they are measuring themselves by, but it ain't the traditional star rating system we all know. Maybe Greek stars? I figured 350 per night, jacuzzi on the... More

I've been here twice - in 2013 and 2014 and it was nice to see that things got better in the next year. The hotel is on a hill and mot (not all, like people said) of the rooms are sea-view - and the view is fabulous, especially if you get a upper floor. The other side rooms and called... More

Travelled as a couple we have a great time down there. A hotel is located a few miles from the nearest town of Agios Nikolaos and there is no night life around, so if you want to stay away of holiday night noise it is great! It’s easy to get to Agios by bus with a bus stop in a... More

The hotel is situatuated on a hill, giving practically all of the rooms a pool- and ocean view. Being freshly renovated, it was in great condition. The pool and pool bar were not huge, but functioned nicely. Pool water was salt. Not chlorine. Super. The buffet was OK, but the room big and noisy. In contrast, the two adjoining restaurants...

The Blue Marine Resort was a beautiful and relaxing place to stay..all staff were warm and friendly..our favorite staff member was Ilona from guest relations. She took great care of us and was just beautiful. Make sure you book at the Greek and Italian fine dining restaurants on level 5 as they are just EPIC!
