From our first day right through to the last, we just loved every minute of our time at the Blue Marine Resort & Spa. Our room had a lovely view of the sea, and was always spotlessly clean and neat! The staff - from the Reception to Dining, from Housekeeping to the Pool Bar - were friendly and genuine, and... More

A very good hotel with excellent service! The room was clean, the stuff personal was very welcoming, the hotel has a very beautiful view on the sea, the spa is for extra charge but very private and relaxing, the food is far beyond expectation and the alcohol is free all day long. The hotel night club is a little bit... More

My wife Kathryn did a comprehensive review which I agree with. My extra thoughts are that the food was very good and being vegan I was a little worried - I needn't have been. I spoke to the chef on our first visit to the restaurant who assured me that if I was struggling to just ask and they'd help... 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
