There are not enough words to explain how wonderful Villa Mare Monte has been for us. We stayed three weeks and could have easily stayed there for another three weeks. Our balcony apartment was light and airy with a $100000 view of the Crete mountains. The pool, the snack bar and the food on offer was excellent. Villa Mare Monte...

The rooms - lovely views and well equipped with daily house keeping. The amenities - beautiful pool with plenty of sun beds, parasols etc. Good menu on the snack bar with great local beer.

We had such a wonderful time at Villa Mare Monte. Koula, Mandy, Linda and the rest of the team were so accommodating, genuine and kind, no request was ever too much and they really made all the difference. We felt that the location was perfect for us and the cleanliness was that of a 5* property. We will be returning!...

Malia in Crete is famous for the loud nights and beautiful beaches. Staying at the Mare Monte gives you the opportunity to experience both the sea-side town fun and the relaxation of the mountains. Great people, good food and funky music. A must try experience!

Me and 8 mates stayed here for around 6 nights and were so glad we chose to stay at Villa Mare Monte. Although its quite a walk from the strip and beach compared to some other options we preferred this as it was quiet and gave us a retreat the next day to relax. The bar and food service is...

We stayed for 10 days with my husband and 21 year old son. Both the owner, Koula and her team, Mandy, Linda and Martine could not do enough to ensure all our needs were met. The room was nicely decorated, beds were comfortable and both the rooms and grounds were spotlessly clean and tidy. The shower was powerful and the...

Very nice small hotel. It has very nice poolside areas and very polite and good staff. It is not luxury rooms but it is very clean and nice area. Outside of the rooms it is wonderful location with mountains behind you and the ocean 15 minutes away from you. It has very nice and cheap breakfast and many other foods....
