The foood is pretty good, but not various enough. The condotions in the rooms are pretty low; I found a dirty towel and a lot of hairs both on the sheets and in the bathroom. The pool is too small. The staff is friendly.

I've stayed here 10 days with my friend, it was my first time in Greece. Hotel is 1:30h away from Heraklion airport. Staff speaks English well, so I am glad to know that. Rooms were cleaned every day, and towels were changed every 2 days. Staff had a smile on their faces always, and they made our stay more pleasent.... More

I was in Santa Marina with my family for a week. We are glad with the choice because that staff was amazing! Special thanks to the three bartenders Marios, Andreas and Flavio, always smiling and professional, as well as Sorina and Petros who would always make sure that we enjoyed our food and the overall atmosphere. Totally recommend it!
