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

We stayed 4 nights in the hotel, the rooms were clean enough and we had clean towels and sheets every day. We got a baby cot in good condition. We were happy to be treated a bottle of wine and fresh fruit by the hotel´s room service. We needed to put some raw meat in the freezing for a day... More

My wife and I spent two weeks all-inclusive at the hotel earlier this month. The building is 25 years old and is "functional". We had a side sea room facing the mountains and had the hot evening sun on our balcony, and splendid sunsets as the hills changed colour. The main part of the restaurant is characterless, but there is... More

We've spent a week with friends in June 2009. Booking through a tour operator as the rates for individual clients and direct bookings were much higher. The location was just fine , Amoudara is very close to Heraklion which is very convenient for someone who wants to discover the local night life. The rooms were rather small as well as... More
