Just returned from 2 weeks all inclusive at the Iberostar Creta Marine. Fab holiday! The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is great for relaxing but would not have wanted to not have gone all inclusive, as there were no restaurants or bars within walking distance, you would need to catch a bus. The weather was amazing,... More

Good location with nice view and convenient for kids beach. Enough pools. Food is ok for 4 stars, not enough salads and no normal porridge on breakfast. Area for improvement mini disco - the same every day - too boring overall animation. Good rooms cleaning.

Loved this hotel. Can't really fault anything. Staff are very attentive and nothing is too much bother for them. The food is good but much the same every day. If you want noise and fun there is the main pool and nightly entertainment. But if you want peace and quiet there are quieter pools and the lobby bar in the... More

I was travelling with a group of four of us friends as we had a great week, but this was mostly due to the company we kept (our own). The food was ok, we mostly chose fresh simple things on offer from the buffet as anything more complicated was tasteless, and the meal we had in the "fine dining" restaurant... More

This hotel follows a checkbox approach to getting it's 4 stars. They have a pool, a "beach", a fitness center and a dining room which must be how they managed to get the stars.

We have just returned from 7 nights at the Creta Marine Hotel. I can't fault the hotel itself, we had a seaview bungalow which was kept lovely and clean and well made up every day by the housekeeper.

Arrived for a last minute break. First impression was very nice hotel,but went downhill at reception with a €34 charge for a safe in the room for 11 nights, this for a high end hotel is a little out of the ordinary.

Just back from a week's stay at this hotel. Very large, but well laid out. Lovely rooms, beautiful grounds, all clean and well cared for. Staff all very friendly and helpful, and food generally good.

Just returned from two weeks at the Iberostar Creta Marine. Our holiday was marred by bad experiences at the start and end. I'd paid an extra £300 to upgrade to a sea-view room since I like being able to sit and read on a quiet balcony and was horrified to discover it actually had a view over the main pool... More
