We visited the hotel with 2 children - 4 and 7 y.o. In fact - it's one of the best mediterranean hotels we've been at. We lived in the family room in one of the small houses not far from the beach. The room was not very large, but reall comfy and well kept. The balkony facing the sea was...

Lovely family resort with decent food and excellent entertainment and activities. 4 outdoor pools and one indoor plus many other facilities meant kids had a great time. Clean place, good bus service into Rethymnon less than half an hour away, well worth a visit. Went all inclusive, if I have one complaint it was the choice and quality of alcoholic...

My wife and I occupied a spacious, well-appointed sea view bungalow. The sound of waves crashing in over rocks throughout our 10 day stay was heavenly. The established gardens on the large complex are beautiful. The small, quiet pools are the perfect place to relax, unwind and get some reading done. Sunbeds were always available during our stay. The Ouzo...

We have just returned from a fantastic week at the Creta Marine to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We would highly recommend this hotel. The grounds, staff, facilities and food were excellent. On the night of our anniversary we were even presented with a cake and a bottle of bubbly, such a lovely touch. Some of the reviews seem ridiculously harsh....
