My husband and I stayed at the Maragakis Hotel for one week in July. Our room was on the top floor with an AMAZING balcony, the view from which looked right out over the ocean and the port. The room itself was less fancy then what I saw from the photos, very basic bedding and an old, small TV. The... More

The rooms are clean, the lady that cleans the rooms also change the towels every time. There is a very kind and polite barman Vasile (Greetings from Cluj-Napoca). He was always friendly and if you need... More

Great location, main street and beach near. Toilet could be bigger. Clean, good food, helpful staff - if you are going on excursions, they serves breakfast and dinner earlier, if you ask. If you are staying on first floor better close the window its very loud on streets at nighttime.

Where to start... Me and my boyfriend booked this hotel because it looked acceptable for our needs and led us to believe this was a newly refurbished hotel with helpful service and adequate maids. Upon arrival, we were greeted and given a room key which we assumed was the double room we initially booked online some months ago and was... More
