Very clean resort.

Posted 29-Sep-2014
Pros: Very well laid out. Like a Little Greek Village, although very large for a resort. Never more than 5 min walk to anything.
Cons: They should have non-smoking outdoor areas.
Location: Easy to rent a car as we did and go off exploring for the day. Very close walking distance to many shops, bars and places to eat if wanted
We wanted a week to chill out and relax and Creta Maris served us well. Lots of food options, very clean resort, well maintained gardens and the staff are happy to accommodate.

Lovely Area

Posted 04-Sep-2014
Pros: Great location next to the beach, Hotel decoration beautifully done. hotel staff very helpfully and friendly Evening entertainment venue great.
Cons: Full length mirror would be of great benefit. Tuna & Ham available in main restaurant at lunch time alternative to hot food Dive Centre is Useless
Location: Spinalonga trip was fantastic
Just back from 10 night stay at this resort and we had a lovely time, Stayed in the Maris building near the main restaurant with a sea view room on the second floor. Rooms are basic but clean with very good air conditioning, some minor faults but soon rectified by the management team. Sun beds get reserved early despite told what they say or you read. We contacted dive centre upon arrival to arrange a specific dive and he said he would be in touch, as the days past he eventually told us a day it would happen and said he would let us know the details and put it under our rooms, guess what not information and when asked him on the day he said no the weather was to bad, this is despite no wind and in the thirties bright sunshine. Utter rubbish and when told him this had upset us he said go away and enjoy your holiday and leave me alone, as he also said he does not work for dive centre but just helps them out yet in uniform and at a stand advertising? Etc. e-mail to complain etc and no answers to date. We was going to pay 100 euro each but no dive and very disappointed my son is a scuba diving instructor he was furious at this padi dive centre and it should be avoided at all cost. Let's the hotel name down badly. Entertainment team work very hard and try best but all shows are mimed and can get a bit boring however it is at a great venue and some shows are ok to good. They odd visiting acts would be a great addition to help entertainment team as was done on Greek night.

A fantastic hotel - everything you could want!

Posted 30-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
This is an extremely well run hotel - friendly and helpful staff, fantastic location right beside the sea giving beach as well as multiple pool choices. The food is varied and fresh and in addition to the main restaurant there are four other specialty restuarants (Italian, barbecue (this one with an amazing location right on the Med), Greek, etc). These are by prior (day before) booking but had no problem getting a reservation . Plenty of sunbeds available although the main pool does get busy but hotel enforces a no reserving policy. Other pools are quieter so you can choose the pool environment you prefer. All inclusive deal includes drinks - wine, beer and many different cocktails, all day if you want them.Rooms are very good and air conditioning excellent. Did not find Crete too hot at Creta Maris as cooling breeze from the sea made sitting in the shade pleasant. Entertainments team very good - they put on various events during the day and evening shows in open air amphitheatre (ensure you request a room AWAY from this if you like an early, quiet night). The hotel is very big but beautifully planned out - very picturesque. I find it difficult to fault this hotel - really felt the management and staff were trying to make our stay really enjoyable and they succeeded! We would definitely go back and have no hesitation recommending it to friends. Incidentally, although great for families, it would suit couples as well.

Great Family experience

Posted 17-Jul-2014
Pros: Friendly & helpfull staff, good food, a low stress experience
Cons: More variety in the various restaurants, last year the Italian was more al a carte this year it was a buffet style.
Location: Water park it execellent albeit a tad expensive costing 100 Euro for the family to travel to and enter and food and drinks inside were pricey.
It was our 2nd year at the Creta Maris, we have twin 7 yr olds who love the setup at the hotel, with a selection of pools and the beach.

Great resort hotel with a lovely beach.

Posted 16-Jul-2014
Pros: Creta Maris sets a welcome balance between affordability and quality services for family minded travellers with good activities for young and adult.
Cons: Inclusive offer is good value however certain services like the gym are not included. The alcohol served within the inclusive offer is poor quality.
Location: The resort offers nearly everything you need but Knossos, and great ancient site, is only an easy bus trip away.
Travelling with two kids through Greece Creta Maris was a great place to pause from visiting all the ancient sites and crazy tourist spots to just enjoy the sun and sea of Crete. The all inclusive experience takes the task of searching for lunch and dinner spots away and allows you to just enjoy the beach resort environment. Multiple pools and a lovely beach complete with bar service is a great experience. Kids can roam safely and securely around the resort and it is generally very multicultural and non ageist which is great.

Che delusione

Posted 11-Jul-2014
All'arrivo nessuno e' uscito ad aiutarci con i bagagli.prima camera assegnataci zona Terra building,lontanissima dal mare, seconda vicina al mare puzzava di muffa, terza fronte mare x disabili con doccia senza box e poco spazio x appoggiare le cose del bagno.stanza fumatori anche se richiesta C non fumatori, viaggiavo con bambina, moquette sporca e macchiata. Ristorante pulivano piatti nel cestino davanti ai tavoli dove si stava mangiando, anche a cena vestiti come se andassero in spiaggia, che è molto piccola, sdraio appiccicate l'una all'altra e già dalle 5.30 al mattino russi e tedeschi si svegliano x occupare le sdraio attorno alla piscina, dove alle 7 non c'è più posto C un salviettone. X prenotare un ristorante alternativo a quello principale bisogna fare la richiesta con giorni di anticipo, quindi se non si vuole cenare alle 18.30 bisogna sempre cenare al Cosmos. L'animazione funzionava dalle 10 alle 12 e dalle 15 alle 17/18,gli unici animatori carini erano Rio e Svetlana, gli altri poca voglia di fare. La gentilezza scarseggiava, nessuno ti salutava al mattino, tranne rare eccezioni, molti musi lunghi e risposte non troppo gentili. Ero stata in questo complesso quando era diviso tra Creta Maris e Terra Maris ed era molto meglio. Il fotografo Victor molto gentile, ma opprimente e subito dopo la foto pretende che vai a visionare le foto e le paghi immediatamente. Tutti i servizi a pagamento vanno saldati prima di accedervi, tipo parrucchiere, foto.never more here.
