We have been in the end September 2015, and this location was perfect for us. Very nice restaurant for breakfast, and the food was good, and not same type for 7 days :D. Very close to everything, we enjoyed the beach near the hotel.

Very nice owner, beautiful garden, location very close to the beach, and very good food. The staff was very nice too. I particularly like the garden where one can have breakfast and dinner. It is very romantic. I strongly recommend this hotel to families.

The room itself was less fancy then what I saw from the photos, very basic bedding and an old, small TV. The... More

I had a great vacation at Maragakis. It is a very nice hotel. It has a small garden where you can have your breakfast/dinner. 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
