great pool, great beach, friendly staff. Not great food, but it was ok. Terrible drinks. The sodas and the wine is so bad that the only real choice was between beers and water! Even the coffee at breakfast was of the bad kind. The instant coffee in the rooms was better! There was a option to buy decent wine, but... More

We spent there 2 weeks (June/August). Before we used to choose Magic Life on Kos but they moved the club to a different place, so we decided to change to Crete this year. We have the basis for comparison and here are pros & cons of Magic Life Candia Maris. The cons should be treated more as remarks for the... More

We booked this hotel to have a relax vacation with our little and very energetic daughter (1 year). The hotel is indeed a multifunctional luxurious resort. Everybody can find his way to have a perfect place to stay! Lots of sport facilities/wellness arangements/places to relax/enjoy the 3 restaurants. it is a bit confusing that this hotel is advertised as a... More

This place is awesome. There are countless activities if you want to stay active, including archery, bike riding, zumba to name a few. The hotel staff is very warm and inviting. The hotel itself is very nice, decorated really well even for US standards. The beach is beautiful. Our hotel balcony was overlooking the beach and sea, and it was... More

We stayed in a delux room on the 2nd floor. We had views of the pool area and beach. Positives: • Room was spacious, lots of space to move around and place luggage. • Our package was all inclusive which meant all meals, beverages (including alcohol) and activities were included in the price. We never had to pay for anything... More

Very nice hotel on a magic island. Nice location very close to Heraklion and kazanzakis airport. Very kind staff and perfectly organized spa and gym. In general, many activities to do, never get bored and great vacation in one of the best islands to visit.

The service my husband and I received at Candia Maris was top notch. We went there on our honeymoon, and there was nothing the staff there could have done to have made our stay more special. The rooms were immaculate and the location of the hotel was perfect. It was a short bus ride away from the downtown and right... More

We stayed here for five days in September. We had upgraded our room to a seaview with a view of the pool. The room was nice and it appeared to be upgraded. We were able to watch the sunset every evening while enjoying a beverage on the hotel balcony that was quite spacious. The breakfast and dinner buffet were good... More

very nice and large resort directly at the shores of the sea with beautiful view. However the cleanliness is not top at all: the floor in our junior suite was not whipped upon arrival, the toilet outside was still full of exctrements (by the way during the whole period of 4 days never cleaned), the water cooker was never cleaned...
