Maragakis Hotel
Ranked #67 of 172 Hotels in Hersonissos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 October 2016 via mobile

This hotel is a classic Greek 3 star with clean, basic rooms that can appear a bit dated to those that think that they are going to get a 5 star experience.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here in September 16 as a small getaway from the family after getting married in Agios Nikolaos.

The hotel location is perfect as it is right on the seaside and is close to the main road. The pathway that runs between it and the sea has many bars and tavernas so you are spoilt for choice for food and drinks when you go out.

The room itself was fine with a sea view, balcony and air conditioning at no extra cost. The bathroom was clean and of a good size for us both.

Breakfast was a standard affair with tea/coffee, juice, cereal, bread, cheese, meats, pastries, honey, yoghurt etc which could be eaten in the spacious dining area or in the garden outside.

For the price that we paid, this hotel is great and I wouldn't hesitate to go back there. Some of the reviewers seem to have expected a high class hotel and service for very little money which isn't fair as this hotel offers a great service for the cost.

Clean hotel with pleasant & helpful staff. We asked at the front desk for various things eg where to go etc and they always helped us out. Breakfast just right, very close to beach, restaurants & bars. Everything walkable distance.

Room Tip: Maybe asked for back room

Good place to stay and very good location. Only issue is the noise coming from the street. AC costs extra but you dont need it. Floors of the rooms are a bit dusty. Breakfast is really good and everything else is spot on.

We had reserved a seaview apartment. When we arrived, they had overbooked, so the first night we were not able to stay in the room we had reserved. The staff was very sorry and gave us free dinner for both of our nights' stay. The second night we were able to move to our room and enjoy the seaview. The room was beautiful and the dinner was very good -- buffet style. The breakfasts were also very good with many choices to eat. You cannot beat this location. It was right in the middle of everything and very easy access. The only negative I can say is there was no parking provided. But it is not hard to find a place on a side street nearby.

Room Tip: best views are seaside views!

The hotel is on a great location, close to the beach, the bars and restaurants, the shopping street and bus station. The staff is very friendly. If your expectations for room exquipment, food and hotel entertainment are not to high, you can spend a very nice holiday here.
