For an all inclusive it was nice. We usually go to Adults only so the kids was something different for us. Room was very bland, outdated but nice views and very spacious. We got a one-bedroom ocean front. The little mini bar wasn’t stalked with much. No art-work on the walls or

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing the holidays’ experience you had at Creta Maris with us and the Tripadvisor’s travelers. We appreciate your comments and will take them into consideration. However, please allow us to offer some explanations on the points mentioned in your review. Please be kindly informed that we perform, almost each winter, partial renovations and refurbishments of our resort, in order to offer year after year even better holidays’ experience. We assume that your comment about our resort being out of date concerns its decoration and style, which probably was misunderstood, as Creta Maris is built according to the Aegean Architecture and the design style of all our rooms is contemporary. As concerns your comment about the toilet, please be kindly informed that if you flush the paper you run the risk of blocking the drains, as the plumping system in Greece consists of small bore pipe-work that simply cannot cope with paper waste. This is why a pedal bin is provided by the side of the WC in which paper should be placed. Our maids empty this bin on a daily basis during the rooms’ everyday cleaning process. We hope to have the chance to accommodate you again in the future! Best Regards, Faye Papaioannou

We went to Creta Maris in September (a little late leaving review, I know) and found it to be so welcoming, not just the hotel, the entire area, it’s in a perfect spot to walk to the town. If, like us, you don’t actually want to dine in the same spot all the time (nothing to do w

When we first arrived at the Creta Maris I wondered if we would ever find our way around the resort, it’s so big. I was with my husband for a week mid October and we had a lovely sea view room. We did find our way around and enjoyed going to a different restaurant each evening, o

Hi, Julie. What would you like to know about this accommodation? Hi There is a group of about 14 of us considering this hotel. Is the main area of Hersonissos nearby? Just considering what it would be like outside of the hotel if the group wanted some other entertainment such as different bars and restaurants, what there is on offer?
Dear Madam, Thank you for your message and for considering Creta Maris as a destination of your next holidays. We would like to inform you that Creta Maris Beach Resort is located 500m. from the center of Hersonissos, which is known as the most organized tourist destination in Crete, just 28km east of Heraklion. Hersonissos is one of the most cosmopolitan places of Crete. The seaside town Port of Hersonissos is quite busy all year around, while it is famous for its night life as there are many bars, restaurants and taverns next to the beach. It is also known for its high-quality hotels and the natural beauty of its coasts. The variety and extent of Hersonissos coastline make it possible for bathers to enjoy an infinite number of different places to swim, all of them lapped by warm, crystal clear water. The main growth driver of the area is the beaches and the calm sea, which is rare in the northern coast of Crete. The calmer beaches are shaped in small coves located west of the port. We will be happy to have the chance to accommodate you and offer our best services! Best Regards, The Creta Maris Team

Are there any adult only areas in this hotel please?
Dear Madam, Thank you for your message! As Creta Maris is a family resort, there are no adults only areas. However, the resort is located in an area of 150,000 sq. and offers many different options of accommodation, dining and entertainment, in combination with relax atmosphere. In fact, it is its architecture that offers to every guest the chance to choose between quiet places as is the Bungalow Pool or more popular and crowded places as it is our main swimming pool. Best Regards, The Creta Maris Team

Hi we are visiting with two young children (1 and 3) is there anywhere to buy milk for the baby and any facilities in the room to store the milk and heat up? (I know there is a mini bar but didn't know if it would fit milk in). Also we visit mid October is there any entertainment of an evening at this time of year? Thank you
Thank you for your message! Please be kindly informed that you may buy milk for your baby in the mini market located on the ground level (next to the spa) and our F&B staff will happily warm it upon your request. All our rooms offer a mini bar, where you may store the milk. As concerns the entertainment, we would like to inform you that our guests may enjoy our animation program until the closure day of our resort. Best Regards, The Creta Maris Team
