To begin on a positive note: - the sea, the beach and the pool area are very clean and tastefully designed. - the decoration in the room is nice and the bed comfortable. Now to what dissapointed us: - the food dissapointed us at first, overcooked meat and fish are not to our taste. Especially lunch is rather monotonous. We...

There is a barbecue buffet restaurant onsite (Cochilas) which you are allowed to go to once during your stay- it was amazing. We used the gym most days for 5 euros a...

The resort was amazing - we had a great time (10 family members+ kids). Unfortunately they didn't have enough double beds, so we slept on 2 single beds put together. The resort is very good with children - there's an activity club and small pools. The food was good. On our last day we discovered that the hazelnut spread we've...

Went in May 2016, great accommodation, great food, friendly staff, so good that we have just re booked again for later 2017. There is also a choice of excellent a la carte theme restaurants, all of of which offer different international themes. Also a great selection of cocktails and as we went all inclusive we were spoilt for choice

The breakfast buffets were great but lunch and dinner should be avoided here as it is expensive and not nearly worth the cost. (Two of our dinners were terrible.) There are much better options on the short walk into town. We stayed here because my husband was attending a conference at this location.

First of all: If you like to take different vacations every year, do not go to Creta Maris, because once you go there, you will never want to visit any other place.
