Hotel's staff, room design & decor went beyond our expectations. The rooms are clear, very well designed, and the view was great! The service was excellent - the staff were welcoming and friendly but still appropriately professional! The location is fantastic too, Just 1 minute away from a golden beach and 2 minutes away from the center of Agios Nikolaos... More

After booking our holiday, I was so looking forward to arriving in Crete. However I was really upset when we arrived and found this wasn't the hotel we had booked. This was down to the tour operator booking us incorrectly. There is more than one Santa Marina in Crete, so be warned as this isn't a hotel I would book... More

Firstly don't get confused with a hotel of a similar name except for a suffix of 'Beach Hotel' that is located nearby across the bay.This is what the bad tempered coach driver did and would have dropped us at the wrong place if we hadn't been aware and pointed it out to him which made him even more bad tempered....

I came here 20 years ago and also last year. I still had the brochure from my original visit and the hotel staff were very interested in seeing it. The Hotel is clean and the food with half board accommodation excellent. I insisted on rooms in the original hotel as they now have bought out a competitor 200 yards away... More

If you are after brit food don't stay go to malia. I had no problems with the food and the staff are lovely. Location -... More

I Have recently returned from my 3rd trip to Crete (October 10-17 2014) and my first to the Agios Nikolaos area. After a long flight (2 Hours Delay at Gatwick) and a 2 hour Transfer from Heraklion airport to the Hotel I arrived at about 3:30am in the morning and was welcomed to the Hotel Santa Marina, my first impression...
