““Imposing building with cosy atmosphere””
Reviewed 16 August 2013

We’ve stayed at Folia hotel for 2 weeks… and enjoyed every minute of it. It is a family owned and managed hotel… thus you can understand that everything is as it is supposed to be… clean, friendly joyful staff, quiet, green, full of flowers… honestly, I’m trying to find things I did not like… but can’t.

Stop looking - you found the hotel!

Fantastic family owned hotel, service is superb, rooms are great, location is a bit away from the tourist Meeks which is also nice. The restaurant serves amazing lunch and dinner. I have stayed at many hotels, this experience is at my top 3.

I strongly recommend this hotel, not only becuase of the clean rooms, nice restaurant and good location. The kind service of the family make our experience in the hotel very special. The family and all others in the team make a lot of efforts to provide a pleasent residence. The food is very good and the service in the restaurant is perfect.

If you want to spend your money wisely, and plan western Crete, go to Folia, it'll be as smart decision as you can make.

Positioned on a hill, it has awesome view either on Lefka Ori (White Mountain) or Ag.Theodorou island, both beautiful. Rooms are spacious, well equiped, clean... Everything you might need is right there. If you don't see something you need, just ask.

Hotels' kitchen is nice and clean, and food offered is true flavor of the Cretan cuisine, as advertised on local signs :)

But best of all are hotels' stuff which will make you feel like you're at home; they're polite and friendly, always there to meet your needs, I'm speechless.

Next time I go to western Crete, I have no doubt about hotel I'll stay in. It'll be Folia, definitely.

The hotel is super cute! The staff are really nice, the food in the restaurant is so so good! It is a five minute walk to the beach (not the most scenic walk in the world, but its very quick!) there are shops right beside it! We shared a studio between three of us, which was plenty and spent lots of time sitting on the balcony. My only complaint would be that the pool is smaller than it looks in the pictures, BUT totally big enough for pool fun!

It is definitely the nicest of any of the apartments that we saw while I was there, and for the price its incredible!!! I had such a great time on this holiday, the staff made it so easy and enjoyable, very relaxing!!!

If i was going to go back to Chania (which i would love to) I would definitely stay at Folia again!!!! The best apartments in Agia Marina!!!!

Room Tip: We were in room 6. Although there are a lot of rooms we never felt crowded by the other residents!

Our expectations about this hotel was high because of all the good reviews here. But we must say that these good reviews are well earned. A cosy small family owned hotel. The hosts are warm, discrete and constantly concerned about the guests' well being. The rooms are not too big, but comfortable (except maybe the rough textured wall paint that really makes you hurt if you accidentally hit it) and really really clean! The pool area is nice and child friendly, and there is a good bar with great service. If I ever go to Crete again, this is the place to stay and "feel like home".

My wife and I were searching through the internet for a decent hotel to stay at Crete/Chania and like the most of us we decided to use trip advisor as an "assistant" in order to find a hotel with good reviews.

Folia was the one we decided to book considering the reviews, pictures from their web site, cost and distance from various summer hot spots.

Upon arrival we received a warm welcome by the owner and details regarding the facilities.

Our room was as shown in the pictures of the web-site, spotless clean, great sea view and quite as it is required during vacation.

The hotel is located at a quite place just a few meters from the sea / center of Agia Marina.

One of the things we really apreciated was that the hotel staff will treat you like friends and not like regular customers.

Folia is highly recommended.
