We spent 10 nice days in this hotel.( me, my husband and our 3 years old son).
The Hotel is in a really nice place, near the sea and not far from Rethymnon center. If you rent a car, it takes about 10-15 min get to Rethymnon.
Near the hotel there are a lot of restaurants ant small supermarkets, where you can buy everything you need.

We really liked the personnel in the hotel. All were very kind and helpful.
The owner of hotel is very nice person too, he was very kind for our child.
The food was really tasty, we had not any problem with it. For 3 stars hotel it is ok.
But please do not wait that there would be the special meal for children, it is only 3 starts. All meal was really fresh and good cooked.

Only some suggessions from our side:
1. Please try to clean the beach near the hotel more often. A lot of people having a rest there, so in my opinion it could be more clean.
2. Playground for children must be improved. There are a good place for the playground, but it is very old, not similiar as we saw on photo of hotel.

We spent here amazing week. The food was delicious, staff pleasant, they solved every our problem without hesistation. Room was big enough including balcony where you can store stuff from beach. We get exactly what we expected.

There were just two things which made me give 4/5. First one was the fact that wi-fi was accessible just from the reception but that would not mather so much. And second thing was the bathroom in our room - especially the shower. It was absolutely impossible to have a shower without flooding the whole bathroom and we were annoyed with wiping the floor after every shower. It would be appropriate to fix it.
But its possible that we were in a room which is just waiting for renovation.

Anyway, thank you for perfect holiday.

We spent a week in Maravel Land and to be honest we don't know if to recommend it or not.
There are many positive things to highlight that are later destroyed by some negative nonsences.
Staff: friendly and ready to help, working hard every day. The biggest plus of the hotel.
Animation programme: Basically no animation programme at all, only one Greek night on Thursday. No games, no activities like sports, nothing. If you can entertain yourself it doesn't mind but some people would appreciate it.
Pool: clean but not enough sunbeds (approx 20 sunbeds & 10 umbrellas), we had to wake up every morning by alarm at 6 a. m. to put towels to reserve it. I know, don't judge us, we just wanted to have a sunbeds by pool :-)
Beach: Red flag for 5/7 days, sunbeds (2) and umbrella for €5 even on the hotel beach. Earning money everywhere. I would rather pay more on the holiday price and have the basic "holiday tools" included.
Room: we had a room placed in the ground floor with terrace directly next to the sidewalk, impossible to keep windows open during the day. Cleaned daily, but something stinked there. We changed the pillows, it helped a lot but not deleted the smell totally. Had to ventilate the room frequently but due to its location only when we were there. Other guests did not have the same problem so I guess it was only a bad luck in the specific room. Beds are ok, nothing special but after all day on sun you can sleep on everything :-)
Food: even there were less choices I expected the food was OK and everytime we had a good meal. Second biggest plus!
Drinks: this point is the biggest disapointement of all holiday. Postmix (Mirinda, 7up, Pepsi, sparkling watter), beer, wine. Still watter was poured from bottle which was filled from pipe before. Just why? To look better? I don't know...
From alco drinks - ouzo, rakija, cognak. Everything from the cheapest brand and impossible to enjoy. Juice - no way, just some "juice looking" fluid colored into orange.

Overall - the staff does its best but the management of the hotel forces them to earn on everything over the very basic standard. And the level of product they offer is the cheapes as possible.

I really missed some more alco drinks (local vodka, local rums & coctails made of it), food (only one day pita, tzatziky and souvlaki and it was delicous!!!)

I would recommend this hotel to not very spoiled people or if the price is interesting. Our price was a bit higher therefore we have expected something more.

But!!! It's only up to you how you enjoy your holiday and we enjoyed it a lot! :-)

Beautiful stay. Very friendly and kind staff, nice people. Tasty, Fresh and Balanced Cuisine. More than Enough Food. Excellent location just on the Beach. Price vs. Value comparison is very suitable. Rethymno town is some 6 km, 20 minutes by bus. Tickets available in the reception. Many possibilities to rent a car /scooter. Very good access into the sea even for children. But due to some big stones in it, it is better to wear water shoes for first few days. Due to the sandy bottom and shallow water, there is slightly cloudy water. While snorkeling in the water not seeing anything. Pool is clean but small, rather only for children, depth from 60 to 160 cm. Few lounge chairs around the pool, almost all of them always busy. No animation for children.
Generally Satisfaction! I can recommend!

Room tip: Just few rooms with the view to the sea. Try to choose or book some room in the second floor, not it the ground floor.

PLUS: The location was perfect for us (right next to the sea). The pool was clear. More suitable for families.

MINUS: 1. some apartments are old, without shutters for the sun and old a/c.
2. cleanliness: if you don't mind shabby towels and holey sheets, it's ok. if you don't ask, they will change them once a week(!)
We believe that it' s too expensive for what it offers.
3. Worst all inclusive i 've ever tried! The food there is really bad with not many options! We were lucky the restaurant across the street was excellent.
