Location: Ierapetra is the fourth largest city of Crete, not as overcrowded with tourists as e.g. Heraklion. Hotel Petra Mare is situated at the end of sea promenade, about 15-20 minutes walk to city centre with many restaurants, pubs and shops. Hotel is located directly on its private beach and it really cannot be closer to the sea. 5* Hotel:... More

We stayed at this hotel back in 2007 and had a fabulous 2 weeks. We went last week September and first week October..... The weather was gorgeous!! When we arrived we were put in a lovely family room with a massive terrace overlooking the sea! We were well pleased. For the first 3-4 nights there was no entertainment, probably because... More

We've spent a week at the hotel. We came as a group of 4 families, mine is with parents + 3 kids. The hotel has good pools and beautiful seaside shore. It has a great water activities for kids. (the Banana ride was great fun). In fact, the hotel has what kids love. Free food, large facilities to play at... More

We stayed in Petra Mare for 7 days In July 2013. It is our third time in Crete. All 3 stays were in all inclusive 4 star hotels (so I have a good basis for comparison). Petra Mare was the by far inferior to the other 2. Pros: Great sandy beach right next to the hotel with plenty of free... More

Very nice place & surrounding at this hotel good food & service not the best but good. As i always said: not visit hotels - visit countries! Take a walk to town; rent a car ("Drive Now" nearby) for take a look allover the isle.

We were 9 people and had 5 rooms. We are all pleased with the service, the cleanliness and of course with the rooms. It was above our expectations! If we will come again to Crete we will visit Petra Mare again.

We travelled late September 2012 and spent 8 days at the Petra Mare. We rented a car and drove the 1.5hrs to the hotel from Heraklion airport. Ierapetra is a small town on the South coast of Crete - it is not really geared towards tourism with a handful of nice bars/ restaurants on the water front but little else... More

The hotel itself is fairly dark and dreary and in serious need of an update. The room we stayed in was fairly basic but regularly cleaned and quite spacious. The view was of the distant mountains and a lot of construction, so we didn't spend a lot of time on the balcony. Perhaps the sea-view rooms would be better suited... More
