This was our 2nd visit to Crete Maris and we were really looking forward it, last time we visited was in September 2019 and we had a fantastic time, however on this visit we were put in a room right at the very end of the complex which seemed really far away and in a forgotten corner, so was quite disappointing. The restaurants and staff were great and the food excellent, really good quality all the time and plenty to choose from. The resort is in a really good location and just 10 mins walk into the local town with plenty of shops.

Hotel's Favorite
Excellent all-inclusive resort hotel, great for families with small children. 6 restaurants to choose from with 3 of them at fine dining standards ( Almyra, Phitos, Platia) Very good pools, beaches, activities for adults and children. Very clean. Excellent customer service. Truly enjoyed breakfast at Almyra and the lovely service from Maria and Sofia.

It is the best resort that he had been in Greece. The room view was spectacular. The buffets have a wide variety of food and a la carte restaurants. They also have an app where you can book your activities. The only setback is the beach. I got cuts on both my legs by the rocks in the first 2 minutes of my swimming. The hotel is a walking distance to the downtown where is the restaurants and bars. But it is a round 2 and 1/2 hours from chania.

Nice resort, but if you like to sleep, don’t stay in one of their suites! The cleaners drag their trollies across the tiled floors from about 4:30am and even with ear plugs in we were woken again this morning. This happens every day, and despite mentioning the problem several times to the guest service staff, nothing was done. This problem has spoiled what could have been a great holiday. The room itself is good, and the location is also nice - very close to the beach. Couple of other things to watch out for. Firstly, we visited in October and only two small pools are heated, the rest, including the water park, are freezing. Finally the restaurants - the food is fine, but they only serve beer and wine, so if you want cocktails or shorts, you have to go to the bar - I know this is a “first world” problem, but it’s supposed to be a 5* hotel - it’s really not - it’s 4* quality.

I stayed here for 3 nights in October 2021 with my parents. I read many reviews and couldn’t decide between this hotel or the Mitsis Laguna so decided to stay at both. Having stayed in both, I had a significantly better experience at the Creta Maris and would recommend that hotel over this one. Positives: 1. Dietary requirements – I have never been catered so well to as a vegetarian – there were soooo many choices beyond the usual pasta and pizza and the signs were so clear for those with dietary restrictions or allergies. The a la cartes catered well to vegetarians too and the quality was GREAT! I loved the BBQ Cochilas restaurant which was surprising as a vegetarian! Almyra and Platia were also good :). 2. The waterpark was great and most of the time I enjoyed exclusive use of it, although the water is quite cold! 3. There was barely anyone at the cinema but this was a really nice touch and a great experience. 4. The activities keep you busy and are varied and enjoyable – I really enjoyed the aqua gym. 5. The app makes things easy to get around and see what’s happening. 6. They respond to requests so fast – I asked for a mattress topper to be added to the sofa bed and they were in my room within a few minutes!! 7. The beach was ok although quite a few rocks in the sea. Negatives: 1. The a la carte booking system has been mentioned in previous reviews but it is frustrating to have to wake up early on holiday to make a booking for that day or the next. 2. It would be nice if one of the pools was heated as the water was pretty cold everywhere and the indoor pool is closed due to COVID. Overall, I had a great time and having experienced this hotel and the Mitsis Laguna, I would recommend Creta Maris to EVERYONE! I’d like to also add that I have not been paid by anyone for this review, and the opinions are my own.
