“Terrible food,terrible service”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

Hotel was full of German and Polish guests and food was aimed at them, we were there on an all inclusive deal and eat out 3 nights out of six. Hotel made gents wear long trousers for evening meal!!! Service was very poor was more like school dinners/cattle market. All inclusive drinks only offered beer,ouzo,raki,red/white wine or brandy other drinks were expensive ie vodka/coke 6 euro. Staff were extremely unhelpful and were sometimes downright rude. the only positive was that the rooms were clean and in good condition although the pool could have been cleaned more often as it had lots of bugs floating in it at times. Beach is only 100 metres away but is very rocky and could not walk on it without footwear.Whole family never been so glad to get home from a holiday

Room Tip: Let us keep room til 9pm on day of departure for 20 euro

i cannot understand why this place has been panned by some of the reveiws i have read.
to be honest i found the room was big and spacious with a large balcony overlooking a very tidy and well kept hotel.
the pool was nice and there where plenty of sunloungers.
the food was ok ,a little greasy but i prefer the greek salads which were very fresh.
there was a large wine box in the dining area which you can fill up with red and white wine anytime you like,which was a good idea.
as for the bar there was lots of comfortable tables and chairs around the bar area and you were served straight away by a very friendly barman.
the staff were rather pleasant and friendly also.
to walk into the busy area it would take around 20-30 mins depending how fast you walk.
there is also a bus stop just outside the hotel and bus tickets should be bought at reception not on the bus itself to take a trip into the old town.
anyway i hope this bit off info helps,i still cannot work out why some comments about this place are so negative.
i guess some people are just so overfussy.
i would place this at a 3 star.
ps its just a short walk to the beach.

We stayed for one week on a half board basis. We wanted a relaxing quite week and that is exactly what we got!! The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
The Hotel is very clean and the gardens are beautiful. The beach is just across the road with a sandy beach and clear sea. The sunbeds are very reasonable at €5 per day for two sunbeds and an umbrella. Very nice walks with rock pools and plenty of little cafes for a drink. Outside the hotel there are plenty of little shops and restaurants and the main town is a short bus ride away.

Me and and my partner's decision about Maravel Sky Hotel was the best!
It was the best holidays ever! The room we were staying at and the view we had were amazing! The hotel's staff were very kind and the receptionists were very helpful for everything we asked. They suggested places to go as well and we were extremely satisfied!
In addition, my parter is a big gym fun and he was quite happy with the gym's equipment!

We will definitely choose the same hotel to stay in our next holidays to Crete!

Me and my friends had a very positive experience staying at Maravel's Sky Hotel.

The quality of food and services was extremely good as well as the rooms we booked.
We were also amazed by the Creten hospitality and kindness. We are therefore looking forward for this summer holidays to book the same hotel and destination!!

I don't usually like to complain about holidays but in this instance I think it's necessary. We booked to stay for 10 nights in the maravel sky apartments self catering at the last minute. We were assured by co-operative travel that this would be a very friendly hotel/apartments. On arrival we went to reception and were apalled to find that our apartment had been double booked and we were to change apartments after 2 nights when ours was ready. This was very disappointing. The room we were in for 2 nights had no air conditioning which we were told was to be paid for and the layout was awful, my daughter had to sleep in the kitchen/living room when we paid for a 2 bedroom apartment on purpose, which had no windows and ants crawling up the side of the bed. It just happened to be extremley hot that night and were forced to pay for air con. When we moved rooms the layout was completley different; there were 2 double bedrooms and a very large main room but we were offered no assistance in moving everything we had unpacked at the other apartment. There were two pools at the hotel don't use them. One was iridescent green and a child became ill after swimming in it while we were there. Ridiculous. We saw the manager and "pool keeper" throw a whole tub of chlorine in at the end of the day then start looking at the back of the packet to see that they had put too much in the pool, the second pool turned green then while we were there. During the whole room hoopla the service of the manager was appaling. The only thing he could do to apologise was give us a free meal ticket, which we didn't use because the food looked awful. Overall this holiday was one of the worst we have ever been on, the only thing good was that the maids were very good at cleaning the room and we were not all inclusive!

The hotel rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The food was really nice and plentiful and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The beach was literally 2 minute walk and there were shops right next to the hotel. There was entertainment nights on with live music that we really enjoyed.
