The hotel is greatly located on the Agia Marina boulevard with plenty of shops and restaurants on short walking distance and supermarket just across the street! Conveniently located at the beach (sunbeds 5 euro per pair). Rooms are small, no warm water in the mornings, airconditioning optional and fairly expensive per day. Breakfast is basic but ok.

The showers are hand-held which took some practice in order to not soak the bathroom. The staff was very warm and helpful. If they didn't know the answer, they called to find out. They helped me...

Hotel Marina Sands is a great hotel in Chania. We enjoyed our stay there and we are planning to visit it again next year. The rooms were clean, the breakfast very tasty and the staff very friendly. It was a value for money choice!

The hotel is located next to the most expensive hotel in Agia Marina called Thalessa, which says a whole bunch about the location! Quiet close to Platanias(10 min walk). The hotel itself is very nice and feels just like Greece! The breakfast isn't the best I've had but quiet good for the price you pay. Just across the street there...
