I am referring at the restaurant Dyonisos belonging to Marirena hotel in Ammoudara. It is indeed an excellent place to have lunch or dinner. All we have eaten was excellent prepared. Strongly recommended calamari fritti, midia saganaki, arnia (lamb),biftekia, but all are very very good. The cook is perfect! Try to go there and I think you will not regret.

This hotel was on the whole very basic but clean and a good standard, but the all inclusive package can be misleading, For example when it says wine ,beer and local spirits its only referring to raki which is produced on site (like scotch). With this package all meals but only certain times allowed and when they state snacks from... More

The first room we got was divided in two bedrooms, one of them had no aircondition, and it became very hot in there. But that was not the worst problem with the room. When we arrived there was a terrible smell (Like old cabbage) from the bathrooom. The manager tried to "fix" it, but it got smelly again after one... More

We stayed in this terrible hotel between 14-24 July 2015 (rooms 402 and 422) First, they put us to a double room, even though we booked a family room, on the zero floor. The view from the room is roots of trees, garbage and cigarette butts with no sun at all. On the balcony we had papers and cigarettes thrown... More

The Marirena hotel is a great hotel, I felt welcomed instantly by George with the nice touch of dinner waiting for us in our rooms as we arrived at 11.00pm. The beds are comfortable and the room was cleaned well everyday and was clean on arrival. The room is a nice mix between a old and new style which complements... More

I didn't stay at the Marirena Hotel in laid-back Amoudara, Crete, but I did dine several times at the hotel's streetfront Dionysus Restaurant. Good affordable Cretan fare with wonderful hospitality. The next time I visit Crete, which will be soon, I will definitely dine again at Dionysus.

I stayed for a week with my girlfriend and enjoyed the friendly staff and proximity to the sea.The hotel was also near numerous restaurants and bars in downtown Amoudara. A few negatives however: the food was not really to a high enough standard to warrant the half board status.The breakfast was very basic with no fresh fruit - surprising as... More
