“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This was our first time here and we would certainly go back. Most of the hotel is built around little white washed bungalows which is built to resemble a Greek village. Each bungalow had a small patio area which was great for sitting out and drying swimwear which was not on display for all to see. The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable.
There were several restaurants to choose from and the 3 we tried were all very good. The quality of the food was excellent and although buffets can be a bit monotonous there were always new dishes and freshly cooked dishes from the chef. The waiting staff were all very friendly and efficient.
The main swimming pool was always very busy and impossible to get a sunbed, even though the hotel has a policy of no reservation, most beds were reserved by 7am. The pool over in the Terra building was not as busy, but you were not near the beach at this location.
The beach was mostly sandy, but shingly and pebbly at the waters edge. As the beach was not very wide, games and playing in the sand were not possible. It was just a beach for sunbathing. If you are looking for a great beach then this is not the right location for you.
One last comment, if you want to visit Knossos you can take a bus from outside the hotel to Heraklion for 3 Euro and then buy a ticket to Knossos for 2 Euro.

Room Tip: Rooms 920 to 930 are all around a nice quiet pool

Came for a week all inclusive with two teens. Really couldn't fault it. Plenty for kids to do, but v relaxing for stressed mums too! I'd make sure to get a bungalow - most peaceful away from the main building and stunning view of the sea. All food, including poolside snacks and drinks, included, generous and of a very high quality. A la carte restaurants dotted around the completed for when you fancy something more intimate than the main buffet restaurant (although this is very good). I haven't had to lift a finger all week - marvellous!

First off all we had a reservation for a different hotel.
The hotel that we reserved was over booked so we where transfered to Creta Maris.
We found the hotel very nice, at first it looked old-fashioned, but as we toured the resort we undestood the main theme: the resort looked like an ancient Greece village.
The room was large eanough for a family of three persons.
We got the view of the pool and sea.
the hotel and the room were kept clean and every day ae had clean towls.
The reception staff was very helpfool. .
We liked the idea of having 4 Al'acrt restaurats to choose from and that we could have dinner in a different Al'acrt restaurant evrey evening.
At last the consern for late departures was the jewl of the holiday.
Our flight was at midnight and we left the hotel at 20:00. The reception crew instוcrt us to leave the bracelate that shows that we are hotel geusts on, so we can enjoy the benifits: free drinks in the pool, lunch and dinner. They alsow showed us a place where we could have a buth with shampoo, soap and clean towls and change our clothing, I didn't sea that kind of treatment in eny other hotel.

Room Tip: People with movement difficulties showeld take rooms in the main building.

this was our 2nd time at creta maris and i cannot fault the place. emailed ahead and arranged for flowers fruit and wine to be placed in room which was done with the help fro Aspa (thankyou). we took my daughter this time (13) and she also loved it. we where up i top village this time in room 6664 which was as expected without fault with a pool out the front and back and 1min to the large Terris pool. no animation team up here they are down at Maris pool so its a lot quieter and less busy. Towels on beds is still an issue which management are trying to address by sending letters to your room but its not working. if you want a bed at the maris pool then be prepared to rise early to join the hunt!!! we did it once and then spent most of our time at beach or in one of our pools up top. animation team we did meet where friendly plesent and happy to help Ben, Rio and gang. Chefs are to be commended for the food which is the best i've had in Crete which i have been 6 times so far. People who find fault here are nit-picking and should really try to get into the Greek way and relax and enjoy the sun. Dont hesitate book now.

Room Tip: bugalows all good 6664 for three

Just spent two weeks at Creta Maris and had a fantastic time. Based in the top part of the hotel near the piano bar. We found this ideal as it was a little less busy than being down by the beach side pool area. Food fantastic and an excellent choice in all the restaurants. All the staff are friendly and can't do enough for you. Special mention to Areti in the pool bar who never stopped all day but always had a smile on her face and to Michealis in the piano bar, who both gave exceptional service. We will certainly return to this hotel and would recommend it to anyone thinking of going to Crete. Thanks once again to all at Creta Maris for a fabulous holiday, can't wait to return.

Just come back from the Creta Maris Hotel after having .a fabulous week there. food was excellent, whole place was clean and well looked after, the staff very helpful and polite at all times. My boys are 18 & 16 and I think this will be last family holiay together and they were not bored as there was plenty of things going on for them to do. After reading a bad report we were a bit dubious the lads would be bored, obviously the report was a load of rubbish. There was plenty of snacks through out the day, fresh orange at breakfast, a good variety of food in all the restarants

Room Tip: We stayed in 6604 and 6605 had interconecting doors, sea, pool and garden views.

We were here already 10 years ago as a couple and liked it... now as a bigger family we liked it even more. Each of us found something to do and finally we even extended our staying.
Healthy food, welcoming stuff ( spesial thanks to Maria, Zianis and ofcourse Katherina who made us feel "like at home"), funny and energetic animation team, well-organised spa ( thank you Erianna, thank you Artemis), cozy bungalo village in greek traditional style nice beach with transparent water..
Inspite of I prefer to discover some new places i will definitely think about Creta Maris Beach resort for the next year..
