I had a great experience with the Sky at Night event at Creta Maris Resort. The team were very knowledgeable with their telescopes and the SkyMap app with the Greek Myths of the star constellations entertaining!
Not to be missed it on a Saturday evening!!!!

Stayed for four nights - all meals included package - and found it perfect. It is right on the beach and has everything for everyone. Food is buffet style, so you always get what you feel like, not potential limited selection that can occur at some resorts/hotels, and very good too with a huge selection. Resort has three pools, gym (operated individually and biggest I have ever seen for a resort/hotel complex). Can't fault anything as they will also arrange anything that you may like to do on Crete as well as having literally everything anyone could want if they stay on site all day. We will go back next time on Crete.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms in main building face the beach and have sea views.

Just spent a relaxing week at Creta Maris. Found the hotel and facilities excellent. The resort is large with plenty of restaurants and pools which gave the resort a relaxed atmosphere. The evenings were spent drinking cocktails in one of the many seating areas.
If you want an exciting evening then you will need to go to the local town which is 5minutes walking distance away as the resorts entertainment is rather limit.
I have yet to return to the same hotel twice, but I hope to return to Creta Maris again. Great holiday.

I have just returned home yesterday from Crete after a wonderful week long at the Creta Maris! This was our first holiday together as a couple and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect - from the welcome to the departure, everything was just perfect.

We chose to stay in a bungalow (Room 6507) which was situated right by 1/6 pools, taking us a matter of seconds to walk to the beautiful sunshine. Everywhere on the resort took us only a matter of minutes to get to. Our room was ideal (for all the amount of time we spent in it) with shower/bath, hair dryer, fridge room enough to store multiple bottles of water (and fruit that we had taken from the buffet to eat at night!) , fabulous air conditioning and 2 single beds that had been pushed together. The room was cleaned and towels/sheets replenished everyday. We bumped into the cleaner almost everyday, who was very cheerful and happy to help with any problems with the room.

As a plain/fussy eater, food for me was going to be the main worry of the trip. However, I was happy to discover that the buffet provided plain food such as assortments of pasta, rice, chips, grilled chicken etc. all of which were very tasty. My other half was more adventurous and tried more of the Greek delicacies which he thoroughly enjoyed. Mealtimes quickly became one of the highlights of our day, often spending more an hour going up and down for more plates of food! The only slight problem I had was with the water- if you are from the UK it might taste a little funny. However, the resort has a mini market on site and you can purchase big bottles of Evian water and take it with you into the dining hall!

The resort is located at a 10 minute walk from a little touristy town which sells an assortment of souvenirs and nik-naks (Tip; go at nighttime- walking to it in the heat is unbearable!). A pleasant little activity to do if you find yourselves at a loose end during the night.

During our stay at the Creta Maris resort unfortunately we needed medical assistance on the morning of our penultimate day. Staff couldn't do enough for us, response time was very quick and management phoned to make sure everything was okay and the situation was under control. At 4 o'clock on the same day, we also were required to go to the medical office which was situated in the town which was a 10 minute walk away. Receptionists and Doctors there all speak very good and fluent English (as do all of the staff at the Creta Maris) and were very professional and quick. Do not be worried about having to seek medical assistance if you need it.

Our flight home was scheduled for 9.20pm (picked up at reception at 6) and check out is at 12 during the day, which meant that we had nowhere to go for 6 hours. However, there is a large room where you can store your suitcase(s) and a late stay room where there are shower and hair drying facilities that are free to use. This came in very handy! With regards to Heraklion airport- pay the extra few euro and get a "fast pass" to get through the airport a little quicker- standing outside in the heat waiting to get into the airport did not look like a fun activity. Once inside, the airport is very small.. Not much to do and very little seats with almost every flight being delayed by at least a half an hour. But well air conditioned nonetheless.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Creta Maris and hope to return in the future!

Spent 4 days at Maris for a conference in June. The resort is excellent. Very modern, very clean, with multiple restaurant options on site. The resort has several pools ranging from quiet and sparsely populated to a large pool just off the beach with a bar, music and lively crowd. The beach is private to the resort and good-sized. The restaurants are varied with food quality generally high. We had a bungalow room with a balcony which had a bit of a view if the sea. It was spotless and modern. A/C, internet, TV, hot water all working. We did have a couple of short (5-10 minutes) power outages during the stay.
The resort is located within walking distance of Limenas Chersonisou which is nice town filled with shops and restaurants overlooking the beach. The only downside is access to the rest of Crete, getting to places like Chania for example is a bit of work, but if you are looking to explore Crete you are probably not staying at a resort. All in all a great resort.
