Stayed in Marni Village in June 2012 with my partner. It was our first trip to Crete and we booked with Thomas Cook and Stacey was our rep.
We stayed in a one bed studio apartment (room 201) looking over a pool, the apartment had all essentials required.It was spotless, quite and alot better than we had expected. The bed sheets and towels were changed regularly.
The hotel pools were amazing and nice for the lazy sun bathing days. The hotel also has a small play ground for kids.
All staff were lovely, especially the bar man Mani who was so friendly and good at recommending places to go and see. The food and drink in the bar was nice and not too expensive.
The location was good, near the beautiful village koutoloufari which had lovely restraunts, near hersonisos for shopping and night life and then a 20 min drive to malia for more night life.
We rented a quad for our stay and i would strongly recommend as there is a long up hill walk from hersonisos to marni village but we didnt mind that as we had the quad.
It was my birthday during the stay and i was so surprised and happy to receive a small gift and card to my room the day of it from staff and management of marni village.
There is a shop and bakery across from the hotel and near Star Beach.
We enjoyed our stay and we will be back. It is a very family friendly hotel and we are already considering going back to stay with our kids too.
