Great family holiday,go during UK school holiday
This hotel is made by the staff, they are awesome and all deserve a pay rise. We had some hick ups with the room and the misunderstanding about what’s included in the Ultra All Inclusive upgrade. But everything was sorted promptly by the amazing staff even the general manger knew who we was and come to check we’re happy. Iftihis in a la cart restaurant was amazing and really good with our 2 year old girl. Staveros was amazing and makes the best cocktails(attention to detail) Anna at Guest relations was very friendly and kind and Christina at check in was super helpful and kind. It has to be said that the Ultra Inclusive is still only partially inclusive but it’s WELL WORTH the money!!!!! The only unpleasant we had was with the other guests! But the hotel can’t help that their in the business of filling rooms and large groups of people from the old eastern block do just that!!! It must be a cultural thing but we found them very very rude and unfriendly, a pair of old couples nearly push my daughter down the stairs cause they was in a hurry and didn’t even say sorry. They never say hello or smile and my little girl desperately tried to play with the other kids but they wasn’t interested instead they pushed her over. Maybe we went wrong time of year for guest from UK(early June). I just want to confirm we had an amazing holiday and would go again and I’m only mentioning it so guest can make an informed decision. We will miss Santa Marina, until next 😀

Not very impressed
Bed and facilities were good, but room and bathroom were tiny and we asked to move to accommodate my pregnant wife but they did not allow this. The customer service was not great. The food at breakfast was also not great. Location was good and the beach and the pool were great.

Nice, just needs a few tweaks
The hotel was nice and the staff were friendly although not always that attentive. Rooms are quite small and there not enough sunloungers for the guests.

Staff was absolutely wonderful, warm, and welcoming, particularly Iosef (Joseph) at the Front Desk. He went above and beyond to ensure my stay was a positive one....very professional, caring, kind, and just a wonderful human being. Also Christina at the Front Desk, Manousous at the Main Bar, the General Mgr, and the international staff from many countries. They all made the difference between an okay experience and a wonderful experience. Again, grazie mille!!

Amazing hotel. Rooms are a little small if there's more than one person staying in the room. Service was great. The receptionist were very friendly and helpful. About a 15 minute drive from Chania and about 10 minutes from Platonias.
