Dear Guests, We would like to thank you for your kind words and your comments on how to improve our facilities and services. We take them at heart as through the eyes of our guests we can only make our hotel better. Accommodation Tax is implemented since 01/01/2018 all across Greece and the tour operators are responsible to notify you that you will have to pay it as extra upon arrival. From the next year we will have upgraded Santa Marina Hotel to 4 stars and sold separately from the annex building. Thank you for your comment regarding the temperature of the served food, We will take all actions needed to avoid any future incident. For that reason though we have microwave ovens for our guests to use and heat up food to their desired temperature. Finally, we would love to see you again on your next visit in Agios Nikolaos.
