We have just completed 3 wonderful weeks in St.Marina Plaza. Our 13th time in the hotel, and we are looking very much forward to our next visit in Aug/Sept. 4 weeks.
The breakfast, lunch and dinner is tasteful with a lot of differente course. The service is good and the housekeepeing perfect. The beach bar is located close to the sea, and to have a rest there is really an adventure with good service and and drinks.
We highly recommand this hotel if you are looking for a quiet hotel for adults only.

Thanks to all the nice staff!

Room tip: Spa on Cavo Spada is very, very good!

I can't find a better hotel in Agia Marina. Will be back in July and August.
Silece, wonderful breakfast, near the beach and the service is outstanding.
Workout in the gym before lunchtime in the pool bar for a good salad and view over the Mediterranean sea. This is holiday!

Superb modern stylish hotel run by terrific fun staff serving fantastic meals and all at a great price! This place is more like a complete holiday than it is simply a hotel. We contemplated giving a poor review to selfishly try to keep it available for ourselves next time, but you cant keep a product like this down! In brief, the staff went beyond helpful for us - the front desk, the kitchen and the bar - nice people but also working hard to make everything work for guests. The food is very well priced and absolutely delicious - for both breakfasts and dinners - with healthy, tasty and/or higher cost items that you ususally dont see in buffets that cost so little. The location is superb - right on waterfront in a touristy but safe and fun part of Chania thats in step with the character of the hotel. The pool is crystal clear and the garden and beachfront just right for some serious relaxation. You feel a bit special here and like you are really on a quality vacation, at last. We will come back to Santa Marina Plaza Hotel, and will probably check out other Gianoullis hotels, given our experience here. I know this is a bit of a rave review but theyve earned it. Book with confidence and enjoy your well-priced, well-catered luxury holiday!

I stayed with my wife in the outstanding Santa Marina Plaza in early June for ten days and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The hotel is located right on the beach and we had the added benefit of a front sea view room where we could hear the ocean waves crashing on the beach as we went to sleep each night. This is a boutique hotel which is compact but very charming. I have travelled the world over for business and pleasure and this must be one of the cleanest and best run hotels I’ve stayed at to date. It’s clear to see the hotel manger (Emmanouil) has built a fantastic team as everyone was extremely helpful during our stay, the staff really do make this experience one to remember, and noting is too much trouble.

Elena, and Costas on reception were amazing and on hand to answer all our varied questions in the typical Cretan way. We stayed on half board and the food was really good, the variety was fantastic and we never got bored as Stamatis & Kristina served up different dishes for us to each night. We also dined on the beach twice (a la carte) and this was something special, taking in the full ambience and the sunset while being served fantastic food and wine.

We felt like returning family from the moment we arrived and are looking forward to our next visit to SMP next year.

Thank you to all the team and Emmanouil for making our trip one to remember.

Greetings from Ireland!

For the third time we visit this hotel. I earlier called it my second home, but now I wonder if I have too move to this lovely place. From the entering at the first day, you realy feel yourself so welcome. The staff is fantastic. Frendly and serviceminded. The food is very good,the rooms are nice and always clean. The beds are a little bit hard for my back, but that was now problem. The amazing Marina fixed it after the first night with some extra mathrasses. Yes, there are some small issues that can be beather, but I will never stay on another hotell, when I am on Crete. We will be back next year.

Room tip: I will not recommend any spesific rooms . I'll keep my favoritrooms for my self and our friends.
