It started as a nightmare, but gladly it turned later into a fairy tale ... However, that was not the hotel's mistake but the travel operator's, we had a valid voucher, while the hotel reception was not aware of our booking. Try imagine, you finally arrive from the airport to the hotel full of excitement and expectations ahead of your... More

During our stay we really enjoyed ourselves in the beautiful surrounding area but also when we were in the hotel. The food for an All Inclusive hotel, I have to say is one of the... More

I have spent the best holiday of my life in this hotel. The rooms are simple but who cares, I only slept there and spent the rest of time at the beach or travelled around. I do not understand those who complain about the food, the food was excellent, different every day and everything I tried was delicious. I felt... More

We spent one week in Santa Marina Beach hotel close to Heraklion in Crete, begining of July. The hotel as a structure was fine (definitelly a 3*+ not a 4* htl), would need a renovation for sure. The family rooms have a terrace with direct access to the garden and the beach. The food was excellent, apart of the selection... More

We were a bit afraid after the "stay away" reviews below, but our holiday in this hotel turned out to be a very pleasant experience. The hotel itself is a bit worn-out, I would credit them with 3 stars, but as we spent minimum time inside the room, it was OK. The beds were comfortable, the service was good, towels... More
