the pictures are more impressive than the reality. the pool is very close to the road, and has very few sunloungers-but the noise would prevent you from relaxing by it anyway. the included breakfast was very basic, and did not change from day to day-definitely not worth paying for. staff were largely very friendly and helpful. Wifi only in reception area, you have to pay for it in the rooms. AC can also cost extra! very close to the beach and supermarket, which are definite positives, and many restaurants. bar is small and the staff were drinking in it with their friends, which can be quite off-putting- we felt like intruders. furniture on balcony was broken.
overall the property is in a good location, especially for taxis/buses/beach and restaurants, which makes up for its shortcomings, I wouldn't stay there again, but it could be worth it if it was very cheap relative to other places around, and you weren't planning on spending much time in the hotel.
the transfer from the airport was an add on to our package-i would advise against it at €40 per person, its very straight forward to get the bus from the airport to chania bus station, and then the bus from there to Ayia Marina, approx. every 20 mins until 11.30.
