We have just returned from 10 days at Carolina Mare Hotel. The hotel was far better than we expected having just been modernised. The hotel is on the beach so that's a plus. The hotel has 3 fairly large pools including 1 that has a small waterside for young children.Food good, better than expected typically buffet style with plenty of choice. Our room had a full bathroom although i do know that some rooms only have a small shower tray. Evening entertainment was a little non existent just typical Greek night with a singer but they could do with a few more chairs to be able to watch such acts. Location-2 miles outside Malia so its fairly quiet. In my opinion I felt a bit isolated, you either have the quietness of the hotel or the roar of Malia and nothing in between. Malia itself appeared ok to me infact not as bad as I expected but we went in the day so what its like at night is another story, Its a good 30-40 min walk from the hotel and in the heat it can be a difficult. There are two taverna's outside the hotel. One on the left and one on the right, The Cretan Family taverna offers really good food, We ate here twice just as a change from the hotel. Please support these tavernas since they are not really busy because of the introduction of AI. A great day trip is to aqua plus waterpark. Overall a really good hotel which obviously has great plans for its future - we would return tomorrow if we could.
