Price vs Quality is interesting. Rather varied and good food. A small flat for drinks. Pool is rather small in high season. Personnel is sympathetic and smiley and they speak French as well. Rooms are clean and correct. Animation is foreseen certain nights of the week. The sand beach is very beautiful. There is a bus stop just in front... More

The food selection at the buffet was mind blowing with everything you could ask for especially at breakfast.The room 315 we had was slightly smarter... More

The Santa Marina Beach Resort is an affordable option when traveling in Crete. Request that you stay in the building that faces the beach and a room that faces it. The stretch of beach in front of the resort is divine, and it includes beach beds and umbrellas. There are several pools located in the buildings across the street. The... More

Had very nice time with family there. They lacking in facilities but food is good and beach is amazing. There is good value for money but in all inclusive package are very limited drinks not all the types of coffee or cocktails included. If you are looking for beach holidays in good value this is the place to be.

Lovely location and well managed hotel with plenty to do for everybody, however make sure you get what you have booked. We booked a sea view room but we weren't led to one when we arrived. After complaining we were moved to an excellent sea view room the next day and offered a reasonable level of compensation. Many of the... More
