Booked last minute for a cheap week break seemed a good price with good reviews. The rooms are nice enough with good facilities and nice quiet aircon , what dissappoints here is the food and the drinks, whilst looking nice it is quite tasteless and rarely has anything Greek or Cretian. The drinks are the cheapest available spirits in Greece... More

This is our fourth stay in a Magic Life hotel and it didn't let us down. The whole Magic Life experience is wonderful, the attention to detail from room preparation to late checkout showering facilities is exceptional... This was our first holiday without children and the adult only criteria of Candia Maris really appealed to us and it was perfect... More

We never locked our patio door as you feel safe and relaxed even at night. The food is amazing different theme each night and... More

My mother and I recently had an incredibly excellent stay at the Candia Maris Resort & Spa. We have stayed in other Magic Life resorts before but this was by far the best we have been to! We arrived at around 1 am in the morning and were shown to our room by a very friendly member of reception staff.... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week mid June 16 and we weren't disappointed with the level of service we got. Arrived at 3am & whisked off straight to our room, which wasn't massive but clean. Magic Life is a brand I had not heard of (German focused) but is showcased very well at this resort. The entertainment team... More

I really enjoyed our stay in this lovely hotel! When you arrive at the hotel it doesn 't look very special from the outside. But once you enter the hotel it's really beautiful and extremely clean! There are 3 pools and the atmosphere is rather quiet (no annoying loud music). We had a superior room, which was smaller than the... More

I've stayed in a Magic Life resort before, but Candia Maris is the best I know. The staff is very friendly and helpful from the moment we've entered the place. The themed buffets in the evening are very good, always fresh food, amazing variations and choices, even gluten free food. The location is superb, just 20 min away from the... More
