“apts for ordinary people”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

i found myself in this place and I want to make a selection of goods and bads of this seaside resort.
the residence I'm talkin' about is very close to the sea, though not the most beautiful sea in Crete. there is a much better sea all along the isle. The room I was given was ok, cleaning was also appreciated, (even though, I must say this wasn't arranged every day); A bad mark on the wifi area, a very bad connection which has not allowed almost ever to get through the line, both in the room and in public areas. A good mark, on the other hand for personnel, always kind and helpful.

Friendly and helpful personnel, great service, clean and new rooms!
Close to the sea, there is a balcony in the room or you can spend a pleasant night next to the pool.
Great value for money, I definetely recommend it!

Room Tip: I would suggest a room with a view in front

We have spent very good time in Venus Mare. It's a complex with cozy and friendly atmosphere, the personnel is polite, the rooms and the swimming pool are clean. It was wonderful place for our vacation. Recommended!

In this apartment hotel you feel at home immediately. If you arrive in the night, it shows up like a fata morgana with its enlighted white/blue buildings, palm trees, flowers and swimming pool. The staff (Rena, Michalis, Stathis, Beta) is very friendly. They do everything to make you feel comfortable and welcomed as a friend. Perfect place to relax at the pool during the day (starting with a fesh breakfast from the buffet) and to socialize with other guests at night at the bar. The rooms are clean, all with balcony and free air conditioning. Also the location is perfect: just 5 mins walk to the beach and tavernas, and a supermarket at the corner. We have come here for many years (never went to the same place twice before) but from Venus we simply cannot stay away.

Room Tip: All apartments and studio's are nice and good. There's a proper room for whatever wish: tota...

Have to say that I didnt stay in the apartments but that I went to Venus Mare almost every day throughout this period to either stay at the internet or stay by the pool. The prices are below most of the prices you see in Analipsi and Hersonissos, which is good. The staff is nice and friendly, and the internet connection will be better :D

It's a quite place so it's very nice for relaxation. The pool is very clean. Same can be said by the place itself. I find it very clean and welcoming.

I stayed at a friend's place in Analipsi but in the future when I come to Crete, I think I will rent one of the apartments for a month or two. The prices are extremely convenient, as I find.

Overall, great experience and I totally recommend it. Oh, and by the way, I was in Analipsi back in 2013, and the experience with Venus Mare was the same (very good).

The location is good and the rooms and hotel area are clean. That's about the only good things I got to say about Venus Mare. Firstly, the owner lady (who's unfortunately always present) is very rude. The hotel staff does not greet the guests. Not once were we wished good morning. We also found out that the hotel doesn't have a free lounging area. It turned out the casual looking chairs outside beside the billiards table are ONLY for those planning to order drinks. The staff will ask you to leave even if you just rest for a while to wait for the billiards table to be available. Also, the hotel has no free wifi. The owner announced that the customers may as well go to the restaurants if they want it free. A few other things to mention are that you are not allowed to throw any toilet paper into the toilet (even though anywhere else in the area it's okay), which means that after a while you will have quite a smell in yout bathroom and the room is cleaned only every two days so it's not a joke. All in all we spent as much as possible time outside of the hotel since we felt much more welcome everywhere else and enjoyed much more than being around the unfriendliness in venus mare.
