-It's definitely a family hotel with family that have kids. All facilities are adapted for that. It's less of a hotel for couples with no children and unfortunately not one of the pools is adult only which is a bit of a shame. In addition to the normal noise that triggers (and this is not a reproach, it's just how it is), sunbeds are reserved at early hours by large families all day long (towels and personal belongings thrown on them) who only use them about 2 hours per day, even though it states everywhere that sunbed reservations are not allowed. This is a problem in many hotels and often spoils a bit of the holiday. A minority of the staff need to smile just a little bit. +A big family hotel with lots of pools, restaurants and animation. The staff at the reception was very helpful and kind. The food in all restaurants was excellent. And the bungalows are very pretty and well equipped. The hotel is very well located, about 20 minutes from Heraklion airport.

Var på Hammam SPA och fick helkroppsmassage av Vasilis Gigioto vilket var mycket bra och kan varmt rekommenderas. En härlig upplevelse i fin miljö och ett bra avslut på veckan här. Hotellet i helhet har varit väldigt bra med fina rum, god mat och dryck samt en underbar strand. Plus att de är väldigt miljömedvetna. Rekommenderar även deras vinprovning på deras egen odling.
Min fru och jag tillbringade vår sista semestervecka på Creta Maris Beach Resort. Vistelsen var toppen med god mat, trevlig personal och sköna bad. Vi besökte också SPA:t på hotellet och fick en utmärkt massagebehandling av massören Dora. Jag varmt rekommendera ett besök på Creta Maris och vi kommer gärna tillbaka.
The beach is big and beautiful. There’s an amazing cove on the hotel’s property. Service, food and drinks could’ve been better as for a 5 star hotel.
Spent five days with my wife and small kids at Crete Maris last week. As we are a vegan family, we were worried that we might have troubles with the food and that we won't find too much possibilities for eating. Nikkos, the extremely nice Restaurant Manager and Dimitris, the amazing Cosmos Chef, went out of their ways to keep us happy (and very full :)), by preparing special vegan dishes just for us and letting us know the vegan possibilities on the buffet at every single meal. These two guys alone are a great reason for us to come back soon! Other than the tasty food and the very friendly staff, the resort and its rooms are beautiful, very clean and well kept. Another great attribute is the very professional entertainment staff who put on great shows every evening and did a great job. we also really liked the fact that although the hotel seemed full, the restaurants, many pools and beach were never too crowded. Bottom Line: Crete Maris is a great place for a fun and relaxed vacation with the kids! Maybe just one thing to be thought about: it makes a perfect sense to have a dressing code policy at dinner at the main restaurant - but not allowing a well-dressed woman wearing Flip-Flops to enter - while anyone who just came from the gym or a run wearing sport shoes and shorts is welcomed – is, in my mind. A bit too strict - especially when the walk back to the room to change can sometimes takes 10 minutes…
Apart of not so nice experience with the staff from the reception(the blonde lady with tale and fake smile) everything was very nice.Don t forget to download the app,is very helpful especialy when you want to book the restaurants.Thank you Mr.Manolis and Mr.Manolo,they are special.Thank you Creta Maris !!!!
-Activités tennis et mini golf vétustes et arc ouvert très épisodiquement (non fait) Salle de sport ouverte à tous ridiculement petite (1 vélo et 2 tapis de course pour tout le club!) Très belle autre salle de sport à côté mais avec suppléments (donc vide), dommage de ne pas l ouvrir à tous au prix de la semaine +Bonne qualité du buffet extrêmement varié Cadre très beau avec nombreuses piscines et grande plage aménagée Bar sur la plage et au bord des piscines
The best massage in my life, wonderful place and very professional service. Velice profesionální služby, krásné prostředí, všude čisto, příjemná vůně. Masáže navštěvuji co dva týdny a toto byla bezkonkurenčně nejlepší masáž jakou jsem kdy zažila. Při dovolené určitě doporučuji navštívit zdejší SPA centrum a masérku Giota
An incredible wax service done by Asmik. Completely painless and pleasant experience! My mother and sister also had the Cretan massage and hammam package and they loved their services. Beautiful space and very professional and lovely staff (massages done by Vasilis and Vasilis Gigioto) Would definitely recommend! Thank you very much!
The brilliant location next to the beach and 30-minute transfer from the airport, good-sized and very clean rooms, excellent quality and range of food, lovely staff and great facilities, including the gym, spa, swimming pools and evening entertainment, have all made my family’s week’s stay in this all-inclusive hotel so relaxing! We have particularly enjoyed chilling out in the Romantic Bar, taking part in the local wine tasting experience organised by the hotel, watching the Michel Jackson performance, as well as eating in all of the restaurants. Thank you to the staff for the extra touches which we have appreciated during our stay; organising a cake for my sister’s birthday, as well as to Stella in the restaurant for being so friendly every meal time and for making a special request to the chef to prepare a Greek dish that I was craving. Without any hesitation, I thoroughly recommend this resort to individuals, families and couples who are looking for a hassle-free, relaxing and all-inclusive break in the sun.
Great Hotel, great Spa (perfect massage by Dora) - perfect for families, simply a great choice for relaxing AND keep your kids entertained. :-) We'll definitely come back again. Room tip: Bungalow Area
Avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet hôtel. Avons testé le spa avec mon mari et allez y les yeux fermés Avons eu 2 thérapeutes( Giota et Evi) excellentes, n’on seulement très professionnelles mais aussi très souriante et très très gentille
הספא מעולה, אם כי יקר מדי. נקי מאד ומטופח מאד. ריחות מדהימים. נהניתי מאד מהמסאז׳ (70 דקות) של Vasilis. הבחור מקצועי ונעים הליכות. מתאים את חוזק הטיפול ללקוח. הרגשה מעולה אחרי הטיפול הנהדר הזה! מומלץ מאד!
-Activities for kids are not so attractive, at least for our kids, but that wasn’t an issue for us. +great food, drinks and activities and all is included, we didn’t had to pay extra for anything!
This spacious resort will ensure you get your steps daily. There are several room options from suite to cute villas. There is cobble stoned walkways everywhere so bring flats or walking shoes to get around. There are a few great restaurants, but the options were in line with Greek resort food. The fine dining restaurants are up the hill away from main building so prepare to walk up hill unless you get the cart to drive you. All bars except one close at midnight so the term all inclusive is a little misleading. Room service was not included and that was a bummer. The Italian and BBQ restaurants were very good and offered lots of choices. The housekeeping was outstanding and came early. They replaced items thoroughly. A++
It has been such a delight to have dinner in this restaurant. The food was excellent! Top quality nice presentation and service were topissim ! A big thanks to Dimitris the sommelier who recommend us a very nice Greek red wine and was extremely friendly! Well done .....
Really great service and easily the best food we have had in Crete , so many delicious things to eat, coming back as too full now! The pizza was fab as well as all the other things like mussels, bolognese, puddings etc., Our waitress, Athina, was fabulous so great service. Brilliant.
Had the most amazing spa treatment today at the spa! Raphaela was so thorough and kind, and I felt very calm and relaxed after the massage! The facility is very beautiful and the oils have the most incredible scent!
I was here for holidays with my daughter on the month of August 2018 .I dont even know where to begin .This hotel is so wonderful beach has white soft sands.Food is on top we booked full board and we never missed our meal because the food is GREAT and you just want to eat(Smile).The pickup from the airport was well organised as we arrived the receptionists were there to assist immediately.They do a great job with a smile. Then at the entrance of Restaurant COSMOS we were met by ever smiling MARIA and ELENI they are so sweet and kind and always wanted to know if we were having a good time they were always ready to assist if we needed to now something. Service in this restaurant is out of this world ILIAS the waiter i would call him the best waiter .I've never seen someone enjoing doung his work perfectly like him.He served us well with a smile and fun. I definitely will go back to stay at Creta Maris.We got the best room and we even could see Lunar eclipse so perfectly. I reallly would reccomend this hotel it has nice atmosphere and great for family vacation.OH kids have tigereher own buffet.It doesnt get betteer than that.
