Just arrived home from a very enjoyable week at Marni Village. We arrived late and were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who showed us to our room and we were still able to have a couple of drinks at the bar although no one else was there.
Our room was a studio which was clean and functional but small and next time we will spend extra for an upgrade.
There are 3 pools to choose from, the main/largest pool was very busy so we didnt bother with it and stayed at the smaller pools (top and bottom pools). the top pool is by far the best with spectacular mountain and sea views. Both have pool bars which are reasonably priced.
Koutouloufari is a short walk away, a beautiful Cretan town with traditional tavernas. Our favourite was David Vegera - a very popular restaurant and there is often a queue but well worth it.
We also walked to the other side of Koutouloufari where the Old Hersonissos town is with more lovely Tavernas and traditional Cretan entertainment and dancing happens in the main square. Our favourite here was Georgios Place. Delicious home cooked food and great hospitality received here!
A 10 minute walk from here is the town of Hersonissos with bars and music etc if you want something more lively, we spent one night in nearby Malia (a 15euro taxi ride away) which is even livelier still!
All in all a very relaxing holiday and plenty on offer to entertain all ages.
We hope to return again soon.
