There are three beaches, we found the far right one the best as it has a beach bar and you can nip up to one of the smaller pools. Beware you are charged 4 euros a day for the sun beds even...

We were delighted to return to the Iberostar Creta Marine for the second year running - essential following the previous year's break which was truncated due to missing the flight out! Whilst we do not normally return to the same place so soon, we were so enthused to do so for this fantastic hotel for many reasons. Firstly the staff...

The hotel itself was very clean and the staff were amazing and really helpful however the let down was variety of vegetarian food available at the buffet, we ended up having chips and margarita pizza for 5 days with salad. Also if we have all inclusive I think the mini fridge in the room should be refilled without a charge....

Normally i review by listing pros and cons however there were no cons on this occasion. Pros We arrived very late, needed emergency assistance as we'd locked our cases and left the keys at home.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On an island between three continents a civilisation known for its passion for palaces was born: Crete. The north coast is home to the IBEROSTAR Creta Marine hotel, which, in honour of its ancestors, maintains the tradition of offering a place in which every visitor feels like royalty. Spend your holidays by the Aegean Sea and enjoy the beach in luxury at this All Inclusive hotel in Crete. Your palatial stay. The options include a room with views of the Aegean Sea or a bungalow set in a beautiful garden full of palm trees. Wherever you choose to stay in this hotel in Greece, you’ll enjoy superior service and access to the private beach. A beautiful, privileged setting. Stay in a peaceful area located by Panormo beach where, as well as enjoying pleasant days in complete tranquillity, you can watch the golden sunsets that are a joy for everyone. Bring your family with you. Children also feel lucky here. They have their own areas for making friends and taking part in all kinds of activities organised for them by their friendly, attentive instructors. For every palate, even the most discerning. Discover the pleasures of Mediterranean cuisine: Greek salad, lamb chops, gyros, and much more. Ask us to shake up a delicious cocktail while you watch the waves breaking, or relax by the pool of this sea front hotel. Worship your body. In the spa area of the hotel, you’ll feel as if your body has become a sculpture in the hands of true experts in relieving stress and giving massages with Cretan oils. You’ve never felt so revitalised. Special occasions organised with care. Your honeymoon, your birthday, your anniversary… Even if you’re just returning to stay in the hotel. If you have reason to celebrate, we’ll join you by providing you with exclusive treatment and a surprise or two. ... more   less
