We stayed at Marilisa for 7 days in mid-September 2022 and we loved it. The hotel is very nice and clean. It is located in a quiet, not very touristy area, with access to the beach, shops (the nearest off-license is about 2 minutes walk and is open until 1-2 am), restaurants and bars. Our rooms were spacious and cleaned daily and kept immaculate by the lovely cleaning ladies. There was a good selection of food at breakfast and dinner and it was very tasty too - and you get to eat outside which was a bonus for us. Eleni, Aris and the rest of the team who looked after us deserve a huge shout out as they were extremely polite, friendly and always happy to help with anything. The beach is 2 mins. walk through the back gate, although it is quite small and not the prettiest. We found the Arena beach more appealing. It is about 15 mins walk from the hotel or 2 bus stops away. We would definitely recommend staying at Marilisa and we hope to be back in the future.

Marilisa – a small, chic, quiet hotel, very close to the beach. Everything is of hight quality - large, spacious rooms, silent air conditioning, small but efficient refrigerator, bed linen and towels that look like new. Good food, not pretentious, but sufficient and diverse. You can eat at a table on the terrace - what could be nicer? And - best of all - the staff is extraordinary. They seem to be there to make you feel like home. They provide you with all the necessary information about interesting places to visit. Heleni, the head of staff, knows the names of all the tourists and is attentive to all their needs. Heleni, we already miss you!

This hotel is amazing, first and foremost because of the staff. They are extremely friendly, hard working, always eager to help, and they actually remember the names of their guest. They made our trip memorable, and we cannot thank them enough. We've traveled to many places, but this is the first time I've encountered employees who do much more than their job description. Just a small example: it was my husband's birthday, and the staff baked him a cake, as a surprize - with candles and a birthday song! I was deeply impressed. And they were extremely kind to my energetic 7 year old boy, and so patient with him, always engaging in friendly discussions...thank you Eleni and Ari, I appreciated this very much! The room (as everything else at the hotel) was spotless, cleaned daily, with high quality bedlinens. The food was delicios, the beach near by was very nice, small but clean and peaceful (there are also many beaches close by which offer sunbeds for 5 eur). The water is amazing, and there are many beautiful places to visit in the area. In conclusion, I highly recommand this hotel, it's a great value for money. Even though it's a 3* hotel, the services provided are well above that!

The personnel in the hotel was very friendly, helpful and ready to give a hand during our entire stay. They offer a wide variety of food for breakfast as well as dinner. We appreciate the possibility to taste traditional local dishes and drinks. There were several sandy beaches reachable within a few minutes on foot. We also see the quiet atmosphere of the hotel as a plus. The cleanliness of the rooms was also without problems. We felt there like at home also thanks to the fact that Aris and Eleni remembered the names of each guest. Our warm regards goes to them for their extraordinary care. We hope to be able to return at some point in the future. J & B

Very positive hotel experience. I especially liked the fact that visitors were addressed personally (by name) Location of the hotel is great, just next to the sea, close to shops. Hotel staff (especially Eleni) was very helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable, cleaned every day. Breakfast was good - variety of cheese and ham, butter, eggs made different each day (boiled, omlette), vegetables, jams, nutella, honey, fruits…. Dinner was very good. Lots of choice - dishes with meat and vegetables, fish, rice, salads, fruits and sweets….. The beach is very close to hotel, you can get the umbrella with you from hotel. Beach is very quiet, a few people all day long. The village is quiet and close to the airport.You can go to Heraklion by bus, 1.90 euro the trip, to Hersonissos 1.80. Also close to Cretaquarium, 1,60 euro the trip. We enjoyed our stay and we will return!

We just got back from a one week trip to Crete and 7 nights at Marilisa. This is a place that made us feel like we were home. Eleni and her colleagues were very nice and always very helpful. We thank them for all the help. Our daughter, Natalia, still talks about them. The room - very good and cleaned every day. We had a pool view room and at first we thought it will be noise but we handle it and could take our afternoon nap. The food - breakfast was good, almost the same everyday but that’s the case in all hotels. In the morning there is variety of cheese and ham, butter, eggs made different each day (boiled, scrambled or fried), vegetables, jams, honey, fruits and cereals. We took lunch there only the first day and we had a nice Greek salad and chicken gyros. The other days we took the recommendation from Eleni and went to To Kima tavern (I hope it is spelled correct) a few minutes away. Very good food there. Dinner at Marilisa was good. Various dishes with meat and vegetables, fish, rice, salads, fruits and sweets. We had what to eat each evening. All the drinks from the bar you have to pay. Draft beer is almost 4 euro and a juice 2.70 euro. The beach - is almost 50 m from the hotel and you get an umbrella from the reception if needed. It’s very quiet and not crowded, only a few people all day long and most of them are locals. It’s mostly for towels but there are also sun bed. A pair with umbrella costs 5 euro all day. The village - quiet and close to the airport, only 15 minutes away. You get go to Heraklion by bus, 1.80 euro the trip. Also close to Cretaquarium, 5 min, and 1,60 euro the trip. Lots of car rental places and we recommend Interhellas, neighbour’s of Marilisa. Good service and prices.

My family has visited this hotel many times over the last 15 years. Every time we enjoy our stay! The staff is very friendly, personable, and accommodating. While the whole staff has been wonderful, I would like to pay a specific complement to Eleni, whose attentiveness and kindness made our stay most enjoyable . The location is great for easy access to all sorts of vacation preferences. The pool & bar were a particular favorite of mine and offers good shade on hot days and good shelter if it happens to by windy. As always, we will return!

The staff was attentative and helpfull. Always in a good mood thus created very friendly atmosphere. Location of the hotel is great, just next to the sea, close to tavernas and shops. Room was spacious. Comfortable bed. We liked the dinner (lots of choice, also traditional greek food). Breakfast - hams, cheeses, veggies, jams, nutella, greek yogurt and only one choise of warm food (boiled eggs, omlette, sunny side up eggs - each on different day). We missed some more choices of warm food. We also tried food from the menu - pita gyros (8,5 eur) and souvlaki (8,5 eur) and the food was great. Juicy meat, golden and crispy chips, very fluffy pita (I could eat it only with tzatziki every day) and huge portions!
