It really depends what you want from your holiday. We went with our grown up children and their partners and we had a great time. The staff are friendly and helpful and we thought the food was excellent with a wide choice. The beach is close by and its a nice stroll into town. Gouves is not really an old... More

Four of us booked an All Inclusive holiday at the Marina Hotel, Heraklion for one week and I can honestly say we had a fabulously chilled out week. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the hotel was clean and tidy and the food was excellent. The hotel had a truly international feel to it with guests being a mix... More

We booked a 13 Day Greek Islander w/Crete through Gate 1 Travel. We were very pleased with Gate 1 Travel for their thoroughness and their reps that met us for our transfers, etc. We opted for the Plan B hotels and while our hotels in Mykonos,Santorini, Athens were very good, the Marina Beach in Crete (Heraklion), was not a 4+...

This hotel is situated in the small tourist town of Gouves. It caters to the all inclusive beach vacationers from Europe. There are actually 2 plans available, all inclusive or half board. You need to ensure which one you are on as many features are excluded on the half board and it is extremely expensive to upgrade on the spot.... More

the marina beach hotel is the worst place we have stayed, the first room we were given the shower leaked and flooded the floor I went to complain and was treated as though I was something they had stood in, but a nice lady in reception offered us another room the next day. Also when I went for a shower... More

I have stayed at the Marina Hotel now 5 times and absolutely love the place. Each time I go I love it even more. The all inclusive package is value for money. It is definitely a proper all inclusive with all meals, drinks (including water) and snacks part of the package. Sunbeds on the beach and by the pool are... More

This holiday started like the holiday from hell! Diverted to Athens airport for 2 hours as unable to get into Crete due to the most horrendous electrical storm and torrential rain. Thought we were never going to arrive and once we did definitely wished we hadn't!! The hotel can only be described as decrepid. Horrible 1970s decor: pink dining room... More

Having booked our all inclusive holiday before discovering this excellent site we were horrified to read the reviews. It was with trepidation that we boarded the coach for our transfer to the Marina Hotel. To add to our fears we were the only people on the coach staying at the hotel. Upon reaching Gouves the drive in down narrow dusty... More
