Travelers' Choice
Maravel Star Art Hotel is situated in the middle of an extended sandy beach 7km east or Rethymno and practically on the center of the northern coast of Crete. This new hotel is lovely designed to meet all the parameters and features of a small and specially friendly lodging in a quite and pleasant environment where privacy of the vacationer is of extreme importance. The whole complex is located right on sea front and its privileged position between the infinity of blue water northward and rolling hills of olive groves southward offers an ideal vacationland to holidaymaker. Its 41 rooms of Cretan traditional architecture artistically decorated, around a swimming pool and a lounge, bar, restaurant and a number of every kind of amenities, in the middle of a garden of palm trees of exotic flavor promise an unforgetable holiday time to our guests. Special attention has been given to the decoration of the hotel which was accomplished by the company founder's daughter, Marina Maravelaki, a succesful artist with international distinctions in the field of art. She worked hard to present an outcome which deserve the title of "Art hotel", while it is also by artists and common people highly respected and admired. Furthemore the whole operation of the hotel is run by the children of the founder in critical positions ( hotel manager, reception supervisor ) a fact that leads to high standard qualities of hotel cervices and hence maximum operation outcome

Καλημέρα! That was our first visit on Crete and the hospitality of Maravel Star Art Hotel captivated us very, very much! Wonderful and delightful people, perfect, peaceful and quiet location. Just few steps to the beach through a garden! We've tried so many fantastic tastes in the kitchen! Yummy! We could feel this real greek kindness and atmosphere. Each employee of this amazing hotel was always smiled, helpful but the best and the one and only guy on this ship is the bartender Giannis! So many hours spent on great conversations, rakija shots and stories told. Rooms are fantastic, with fridges 24/7 on, cleaned daily! I can't name you all by name but we would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts and please be sure, that we will come back! See you soon! Ευχαριστώ!

The hotel is very calm, friendly and clean. The atmosphere is really domestic, personel is kind. The owner still keeps the eye on the business and he's really pleasant guy. If I had to find something to improve it would be variety of meals, especially on breakfasts. Snack bar could have also include salty snacks (chips, nuts, nachos etc.) Summarizing, I completely recommend the place due to atmosphere, people and infrastructure of hotel. Also the location is good point of recommendation. Nice beach althoug stones.

This hotel is quite small, very cozy and right on the beach. The facilities are quite ok, rooms are comfortable enough. There’s quite poor selection of food, very little fruit (apples, peaches and oranges). Also, we found the staff quite unfriendly, especially the manageress of the hotel. I understand that the hotel is trying to meet the standards of a 4-star hotel, yet I believe that the guests should be treated with respect and not be yelled at. The cleaning took place every three to four days due to the Covid situation and the food was served by the staff over the counter, which was ok for us.
