Hotelli ylitti odotukset sen suhteen, että se oli rankattu 1 tähden hotelliksi, joissain luokitussivuilla. Tiloiltaan/siisteydeltään/varusteiltaan ja muilta ominaisuuksilta hyvin vastaava kuin perus 2 ja 2+ tähden hotellit Kreikan muissa kohteissa/saarilla. Ilmastointi oli ilmainen ja yhden hengen huoneessa oli tilava parisänky. Huoneessani ei ollut ötökkäongelmaa tai mitään mustia matjoja kuten jotkut ovat kertoneet vanhemmissa arvosteluissa. Sijainti oli rauhallinen ja yöllä sai hyvin nukuttua ilman häiriöitä. En ole aikaisemmin käynyt Kreetalla tai majoittunut Marvaan, mutta luulisin, että jonkinlaista uudistusta on huoneisiin mahdollisesti tehty. Huoneessani oli mm. induktioliesi. Perus varusteet samaa tasoa kuin muissakin tämän hintaluokan hotellissa eli astiasto, jääkaappi jne. Henkilökunnasta ei ole moitteen sanaa eikä heidän kanssa ollut suuremmin tarvetta asioida. Siivous toimi ja wc-paperia tuotiin samalla lisää automaattisesti. Paras hinta/laatu suhde tämänastisista hotelleista Kreikassa. Olen maksanut enemmän 2 tähden hotelleista, jotka ovat olleet pienempiä, likaisempia ja ilmastointi ei ole kuulunut hintaan. Kaupat ja katu, jossa ravintolat/palvelut sijaitsevat ovat lähellä. Lisäksi noin 600 m päässä on Lidl, josta saa edullista ruokaa. Voisin majoittua uudelleen. Had a wonderfull holiday in Marva. Price is cheap and air conditioning is free + WiFi too. Wifi worked well and i had no problems watching youtube videos for example. Rooms have all necessary equipment for cooking. I had no black worms or any kind of bugs in my room. In night time there was no any noises so i slept well. Shops, restaurants and the beach is near. Also there is Lidl very close distance. I have no bad comments about owners, i was happy with the service. Also the room was clean and it was cleaned. I didn't had to ask for WC-paper because it was refilled automtically and also the towels and also the bed sheets were changed. Would definately see Marva as a good option if i would go again in Crete. Actually i have to go there again in the future :P I have paid more for two star hotels wich have been smaller, dirtier and without free air conditioning so Marvas price/quality ratio is good. When leaving a hotel by walking there is some traffic so pay attention at specially in night times.…

I have travelled alot, lived abroad half my life and I have seen many hotel rooms, some modest some absolutely top quality. We, my husband and I took a package deal through Detur, (first time ever useing Detur), because we couldn't find suitable flights for the time frame that we wanted for our trip to Crete. Marva Apartment-studios, was such a let down, really run down and truly in need of work not kidding. The first impression was, where the heck am I supposed to lay down my suitcase..? The tiny room had no place buy your bed to lay your suitcase. The shower curtain was slimy and with mold, the fridge didn't stay closed and therefore dripped water all over the food, which some of them we had to through out. The room was very modest, which is ok but disgusting is not ok. Cats defecated on the balcony,which thank goodness was cleaned once by a maid whom we by chance saw. By chance yes, because there were no staff to be seen around, I visited the reception 8 times on several different days and different times. We asked the other residents have they seen any staff around and they said no. These were people who spent their holiday around the hotel pool area. Our neighbors had their air conditioning break down the second day of their holiday, it was never fixed. We had worms climbing all over our walls, YEAK! these black worms kept showing up in the bathroom, the main sleeping area, all over!!! My husband and I had rent two other accommodations over our two week stay, because the room just wasn't decent. We discussed our experience with the other holiday makes (Finns), and they said that they had to clean the pool them selves, only once did they see a pool boy who just took the leaves off the surface of the pool, the bottom of the pool was covered with the black worms. I am so upset with Detur, the hotel was under any standard I have ever visited, and I truly have nothing against modest room!! Disgusting. And the grass grew without being cut through out the two weeks, everything just looked so unkept inside and out. Thank goodness we had the chance to find other accommodations and had to spent only a few nights in this un kept hotel with worms.…

Response from Vasileios S, General Manager at Marva Apartments-Studios
Responded Oct 16, 2018
Thank you for choosing MARVA for your holidays and we are very sorry we did not deliver. We support direct interaction of the guest and the owner to resolve all problems and that is why we have our contact numbers on notice boards in the rooms and at the reception area. Since that did not happen, you could have contacted your holiday rep at any time so she could transfer any complaints straight to us. We did not have the chance to try to solve some of your problems and we are very sorry for that. If we had that chance maybe you wouldn’t have been so harsh on your review. We, at least, hope you have enjoyed Rethymnon and its amazing people, food and beaches.

Lovely place to relax and to have a good holiday. Ideal location of the hotel: 10 minutes to the beach, every 30 minutes a bus to Rethymno, 15 minutes walk to the shopping street. Apartments with kitchenettes,showers and toilettes, small balconies and air conditioning. A good swimming pool at the hotel and sunbeds around it. We loved the quiet area, and free wifi access to the Internet. Amazing place, hospitable Marva family.

Nice situated, 300 meters from town Platanis outside Rethymno. In town there was a bus every 30 minutes to Rethymno. 5-10 mintues walk to beach. 25 minutes walk to Retymno. Hotel needs to be renovated, not so fresh. I have lived in budget hotels before but this was not one of the better..... Sons liked the pool, not so many people and quiet area. Staff helpful, if they wanted..

We could not expect less. We already knew the family and the place. We stayed at the Marva for 7 days and I could easily say it was the best. The weather was great and the apartments looked better than ever. A few changes inside and outside, new furniture for the studios and brand new A/C units in every room. The family were once again very helpful and our room was spotless. No need to say more. Thank you Marva family, see you all next year!!

We arrived at the Marva this summer and did not expect more then the price we had paid for this week. The people who worked there were nice and helpful. Its an ok garden with a pool and sunbeds, and from our balcony we had a nice view overlooking the mountains. The location of the Marva was hard to find. The driver who took us from the airport could not find it, and the taxidrivers nearby didnt either. Not the owners fault offcourse, but its smart to bring a phonenumber to the hotel or a map with a mark on it if you also find this difficult. The Marva is located quietly only a little walk from Platanias, and we did not think about any noise from the roads at all. The room was ok, the beds and pillows were very hard (made it hard to sleep), there was alot of cats around (nice if you like cats, we dont) and the cleaning was bad. When we had been at the Marva for a few days we noticed a cockroach in the bathroom. Something we found quite disturbing. The next night when we got home after dinner there were three cockroaches (that we saw) in the apartment, and it made us very stressed. We called the owners who came right away, witch was very nice when it was past midnight. She sprayed something to make them go away and sat a bucket on top of the drain in the bathroom. We did not see them again after this. Our neighbours also had a problem whit these bugs. Trying to sleep in the apartment did not work very well for us after this, and so we decided to book a room at another hotel for the two remaining nights. Sorry to say that we will not come back here. The Marva has some work to do.…

Nice hotel, peaceful location. Very basic - NO AIR CON, you can hire a fan but you need two really, first night was unbearable in the heat, being a young couple we wasn't too bothered. Nice little pool, good location really close to everything. LIDL just around the corner with cheap food and alcohol. The beach is really nice, really long and nice sand. We went to rethymnon town for the day, really nice, loads of little shops bars and restaurants. We went swimming in the harbor which was a nice change. (i got bitten off a fish which i'm not too happy about haha) Definitely recommend a stay here.
