We have just returned from a week at the Blue Marine Hotel.With its location about six kilometres from Agios Nikolas I would recommend hiring a car at the airport. There were many dissatisfied customers who had long transfers by coach. Unfortunately we were allocated a mountain view room, but this is not the case as it faced a rock wall and was very dark and dingy. We tried to change to a sea view room without success.The staff were most unhelpful. The food was generally good although repititive,and the meals in the a la carte restaurants were enjoyable. The hotel was very clean. All of the sun beds by the pools were reserved well before breakfast, and then many left empty most of the morning. Not an ideal state of affairs. This is not a five star hotel, but more three to four stars, depending on what room you had. If you get a sea view room you are fortunate, but do not go if you are allocated a mountain view room.

Room Tip: You must have a sea view room

Staff very helpful - our bus didn't arrive until early hours but staff still had a drink and rolls waiting for us. Exceptionally clean everywhere.Variety and quantity of food amazing (no way could anyone be hungry!) . A very good holiday - would definately go again

Room Tip: Bar is on 3rd floor so could be a bit noisy!

Very clean hotel, staff all very helpful and friendly, fantastic views, food good for AI though may get a bit repetitive, our holiday included a meal in each of the additional restaurants which was waiter service and made a good change. You do buy your own wine in these restaurants about 15euro's but they where nice wines , which also made a change from AI wine!. I thought drinks where fine, and coffee was good. Traveled with friends and restaurant always found a table of 8 for us.
Animation team good fun and young, they work very hard and try hard to cater for everyone, they need more money for evening entertainment,.
We hired a vehicle so had the opp unity to explore around the island a little.
Great holiday for price!

Lovely place, I went with a friend in may2013 & all of our children who ranged in age from 8-20 and they all said it was there best holiday ever .. It was the start of the season & it took a few days to get going the animation shows didn't start until the weekend and machines for the AI snacks didn't work for a few days either but this wanst a problem. Sea view is well worth paying for other wise u face a wall tho I must say it was a very pretty wall
Rooms lovely & spacious with a dividing wall for privacy from the kids
Food was gorgeous , we all put on weight!
Hotel & pool was clean & tidy
Entertainment was good
Slight negative is, there's not much around it & the beach inst that great so you do need to hire a car or get a bus/taxi to make the most of your holiday
Also some of the Greeks in agio Nik quite rude ,there was a lot of Germans & Russians but this didn't bother us.
Lastly I can imagine it being hard to get sunbeds & the que for the pool bar being huge in high season as when we left it was getting that way and it was only mid may
But i still would 100% go back :) loved it

I stayed here last year for a week and this year for another week, so needless to say that the hotel is amazing. Everything is absolutely great! The staff are all extremely helpful! Reception staff Antonis and Irini and all others are very pleasant, helpful and speak perfect English. The whole hotel is as clean as a laboratory. There are cleaners constantly cleaning and making sure all the lavatories have adequate paper, soap and so on.
The food is absolutely amazing every day. The waiters are all very pleasant and do their jobs in the best way. The bars are amazing too and the bartenders are good laugh. Eric, Maria, Mariana, Georgio and the others. Animation team are doing a good job getting everyone involved in different games and activities.
All in all a great place to stay. I was there with a group of 8 people and we will be back next year! I can only recommend this place for everyone!
