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

We liked the food at this hotel and the saltwater pools provided plenty of fun for the kids (and their Dad!). The room we had was too small for the 5 of us and the evening entertainment needed some more thought and ideas. Nice kareoke night tho by the cocktail bar (my only hangover!).

Accommodation was good as was the food. Kids pool was excellent but the adults pool was too deep. 1.7 metres all over, and only accessible from two ends. OK if you are a good swimmer. The walled jaccuzzi was underwater and we saw several swimmers hit their heads on it. The hotel pool staff held games and exercises every afternoon... More

We booked this hotel about three weeks before our departure date so the only real reviews we had were off this web site. First impressions were good nice and clean with A very helpfull night manager (we arrived at just after midnight and were told that some food had been saved for us if we wanted it) When we went...
