Good value for the money.

Just got back from Crete two days ago. Stayed at Canea Mare Hotel and Apartments. Good value for the money. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Not a huge resort hotel with entertainment every night, but that we already knew that we booked. Hotel was kept very clean and the rooms basic, as to be expected. But who spends a lot of time in the room anyway. We travelled with two children, so my husband and I had a separate bedroom and we therefor had two balconies. It wasn´t noisy at night. Our room was only two doors from the exit to the pool area. I found the bed slightly hard, but my husband thought it was perfect. Canea Mare was much closer to the Agia Marina beach than what I had thought. From the hotel you just crossed the Agias Marinas street, walked 5-10 meters( or yards), between small hotels, and there was the beach! Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Can recommend Mtsos Restaurant, also right across the Agia Marinas Street. Great food, family owned, teriffic service and lovely surroundings right by the beach. We had dinner there, four nights out of seven. And they didn´t have a pushy person by the entrance, trying to convince you to try their food. They didn´t have to. People kept coming back anyway. We rented a car for the week and the hotel has a parkingarea for six cars, on the side of the building. So that worked out well. They have computer in the gameroom, that you can use. You had to pay 1 Euro per 20 minutes, I think. I hope somebody finds this review helpful.
