My husband and I have just returned from a week at the Marva in Rethymnon thoroughly chilled out. The views are great, the pool area is very clean and there is loads of room to relax the gardens are lovely. Vasillis gave us a warm welcome even though it was pretty late and although we didn't need any help we knew it was there. These apartments are in a lovely quiet area but only 5 mins walk from the tavernas and shops.
The drop off point does not inspire confidence but once you get round the corner and see the apartments you can breathe a sigh of relief. It is important to remember that this is a budget priced accommodation so the cooking equipment is basic, but the apartment is clean and spacious, only criticism is that they don't provide hand towels and the towels are not changed all week.
Regardless of this the Marva is fantastic and if we return to this part of Crete we would happily go back. Don't be put off by negative reviews give this lovely little place a go!
