My wife and I stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon. The property is located a little distance from Chania town center but it is in a quieter yet fun location with many restaurants and shops and a very nice, sandy beach to walk on and enjoy. The staff, though, was the highlight of our stay. Staminos, Alena, and Christos... More

The hotel is far from lovely Chania old town and harbour and also far from all the fun in Platanias. We visited early October, and Agia Marina was very quiet.
