10.0 Excellent
Pros: Located across from the ferry terminal and nearby to some nice dining. The hotel is really modern and rooms are nicely done. The bed is very comfortable. Great shower and amenities. Breakfast is a buffet with make your own orange juice and option for omelettes to be made to order. Very good breakfast.
Cons: We just passed through Heraklion from Chania to get to Santorini. Did not stay there long but did not seem to be a vacation hotspot. Would prefer to not make my own orange juice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great service, nice room.
Cons: Noisy at times as located in the proximity of the airport. Then again so is almost all of Heraklion and the windows keep out most of the noise. The step up chair provided in front of the bathtub to climb in and use as a shower is a nice touch but I prefer a separate shower without the climbing exercise.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were welcomed so warmly by Bella. She made us feel so at home instantly, and even though we arrived a little travel worn (read sweaty and overwhelmed by the ferry ride) she was so calm and helpful, booked us into a great restaurant for dinner, took care of our bags, explained the different features of the room and made us feel like honoured guests. This experience was continued throughout our stay with thoughtful touches like drinks on arrival, towel swans and sweets on our freshly made bed, breakfast boxes for our early flight and a gift when we left. The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed, with everything you could possibly need including a range of classic books, coffee machine, gourmet teas, wine fridge, wide range of snacks and cold cuts- you didn’t really need to leave the room! Plus you could look out onto Elftherias Square and the Port from our window. Fantastic sunrise view! The museum, Lion Fountain and many of the other main sites were a very short walk away, along with many restaurants, coffee bars and lunch spots. The bus stop to Knossos was also right outside the hotel.

European luxury design in the room is so beautiful! Balcony with sea view is big and relaxing. Even it is located next to a square, it is actually quite quiet at night. They even have a local smart phone and Sumsung pad for guest to use during stay, which is very sweet! We love everything of this hotel! I rate it 10. We will definitely come back!
Cons: Nothing. Just the shower water flow a bit out, but the floor is all marvel, so it it ok.

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: If u r searching for a resort to enjoy with it family just choose Maris, I did not expect at all what I found and it is fabulous. I have everywhere around the world and the place is great guaranteed.
Cons: The only thing that the resort should improve the system to book dinner restaurants. They should make it as a week in advance booking and not only on daily bases.

6.3 Good
Pros: Sea
Cons: Firm 4 star hotel, not 5
9.3 Excellent
Pros: There’s lots to love about this place. Unlike other ‘Brits on tour’ places we’ve stayed at, Creta Maris is truly cosmopolitan with guests from all around Europe (and beyond). The facilities are excellent (for example, an open air movie theatre, and the gym was very well equipped). Staff are friendly and attentive, and a special mention goes to the chef and catering staff - the food was excellent, of really high quality and plentiful choice. We also liked that the hotel is close by to the resort of Hersonissos so if you fancied a stroll, or need to grab something from a pharmacy or supermarket, or (in the case of our older kids) wanted to visit rowdier bars on the ‘strip’ then it’s all there. Because our two are grown up we didn’t need the kids’ facilities - although my observation is that this seems a good place to bring kids of all ages. We noted with some disappointment that the (really nice) disco was totally empty with a DJ playing tunes to himself (bit sad) so this isn’t the place to come for an all night rave!! The resort is massive and organised across different “campuses” including the main hotel buildings, Greek village-style bungalows and apartments, and another campus across a walkway with another main building and many rooms and apartments spread around. Each area has its own pool.
Cons: I hadn’t realised how massive the hotel/resort is - and as we stayed during one of the busiest weeks of the season, this meant the usual competition for pool-side sunbeds etc (we didn’t manage to secure one all week and despite the resort’s best efforts to tell guests not to ‘reserve’ sunbeds, that’s exactly what people do and the resort doesn’t do anything about it). No great hardship as there was plenty of space on the beach. As mentioned, this is very much a family resort and the bars all close at midnight, so there is no option for a late night tipple outside buying your own drinks and consuming them on your balcony (just two small cans of lager are provided per room per week). This wouldn’t matter to a family with young kids, but if like us you have grown up kids or older teens, they might consider that a bit of a disappointment from an all-inclusive package. Another small bugbear was that it was not made clear that you can only book each of the restaurants ONCE per week (excluding the main restaurant), plus the online booking system was very flaky. We didn’t manage to book ‘Pithos’ at all due to sunbed-style uber-organised guests getting online before 9am for the following evening’s restaurant bookings!). But these are minor quibbles and didn’t detract from a wonderful holiday.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We liked everything in the crete maris hotel. The stuff are great, so nice and warm people. Always ready to help. The food is great. big variety of food. A lot of option for vegans and vegetarians and also gluten free. 5 -6 restaurant at place. Lots of activities for kids of all ages. Every evening after the dinner there is a show. They are really good and our kids enjoyed them very much. The main attraction was the water park. It was great! One of the best hotel i visit for the past few year and i am traveling about 6 - 7 times a year and staying usually at 4 - 5 stars hotels. Thanks a lot for having us see you next year!!!!!
Cons: The only thing i didn't like is the payed game room. I think 1 euro per game is too much. Except that all the rest is just amazing.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean..lovely view from the room and the hotel. Waterpark very clean and nice..Hotel interiors very cute
Cons: Its self service in most restaurants and bars during the day..There is no nice places around that area to go out at night of you want to leave the hotel but the hotel itself is perfect for families with babies..some of the rooms are old..wine quality is bad and not much to do for adults..Beach too crowded and lots of seaweed

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good, hotel , very clean and all facilities required. Friendly staff.
Cons: Only slight thing was the windows let in the sound from the street, and on a Friday night there was occasionally periods of noise from people walking home after a few drinks! Not sure if effective double glazing, but a minor point.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is brand new with excellent facilities and room space. The rooms are very well kept and are super clean. Breakfast was excellent with variant local products and familiar choices too. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Overall this was one of the best hotel experiences I have had so far (and I’ve been travelling a lot)!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Olive Green exceeded all expectations. Staff were very friendly and helpful with all our (many) requests. The room was perfect for our family (two adults and one toddler sleeping in a 'big' bed but could fit two kids in a separate space) and had all the facilities we needed. The restaurant at the hotel is genuinely delicious and well priced. The hotel is a short walk to the main square and had a wide range of restaurants and bars.
Cons: It was a bit tricky to drive to the front entrance to drop off your things (if you are driving). Unless you're very brave probably better to park in the Central Parking nearby and walk the short distance.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed here for 6 nights and starting from check in, the staff greeted us with great hospitality. They have offered us early check in and after the check out we were able to still use all facilities as normal guests in order to accommodate our travel schedule. Food during the lunches and dinners were tasty and diverse. The rooms met the expectations and were cleaned every day regularly. During the day, there wasn't loud music by the pool or the beach and we really liked the peaceful atmosphere. Also, as a young couple, we really liked the adults only concept. All in all, everything was great.
Cons: Although the staff was lovely, we were constantly addressed in German. That was a little off-putting to the feeling of being in Greece. Some of the staff put some effort to remember us but in general it was not the case.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It so difficult to write something in special because this hotel is AMAZING. The most impressive for us is the staff specially George and his staff in the dining room. I have never seen workers in the hotel like them.

Pros: Very clean throughout
Cons: The bedroom was very dull boring and not attractive. No room to hang my clothes after hanging my husbands clothes, my clothes remained in my case all week as no drawers in room also no iron so my clothes looked very wrinkled all week
8.8 Excellent
Pros: - Amazing place, great facilities, which exceeded our expectations. We didn't end up leaving the hotel in the 5 days we were there! - Food was excellent in the 4 reservation restaurants (we never ate at the buffet). - Staff was nice and helpful. - Live music at night. - Very large pool which most people didn't use - great for swimming. - Room had very nice balcony and great views. - Beaches well maintained, sea was fantastic (water is translucent and warm when we were there).
Cons: - It was our honeymoon — there were a bit too many families with young kids for our taste. It was ok but definitely noticeable (hard to have quiet breakfast or dinner at the restaurant) - Service could be too slow at times (e.g. we ordered our breakfast coffee when starting the meal and would get it at the end, about 20 minutes later; you had to phone reception to get ice cubes which typically took ~10 minutes to come) - Wifi speed was very poor (~2Mbps up/down speed) - TV in the room was quite old - small screen and average reception, not up to modern standards. No HDMI cable. We didn't care very much but could be a problem for those who do.

The room was spacious and very comfortable, great selection of pillows! Location wise is fantastic close to everything, many restaurants around. Walking distance from the port and the bus station A ( than connect with Knossos). Fantastic experience!
Cons: We enjoyed everything
6.8 Good
Pros: very nice and in an exceptional location - the only reason for the average rating is that the competition against airbnb housing is fierce and the value offered is considerably lower when compared to a similar airbnb rental - if you don't need the constant hotel room service and wholesome breakfast.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location. Breakfast can get very crowded at the stations but there is ample seating. The location is slap bang central, easy to find, excellent parking. Get a balcony room if you can, Heraklion can be confusing and not only is the balcony a good place to cool down, or sunbathe, the view can really help you get your bearings. Hotel is best accessed from the East side of the city, don't be afraid to ignore google maps and drive on a few junctions to save you driving through the city centre.

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The staff. Amazing staff. That is the only thing saving this hotel from being a total nightmare.
Cons: My second and very last time to this hotel. Sometimes went way wrong there. Almost left the hotel after one night, the bed was so bad that could not sleep. They changed my room ultimately, but that nightmare robbed 36 hours from my trip, and that’s not a way to welcome guests. Everything needs much much more attention and care. Old mattresses. Too old. Unsleepable. Smelly pillows. Disgusting!!! Restrooms small and smelly. The thinnest walls or the worst acoustics.either way you will hear everything. All the time. Poor breakfast, bad taste, shameful to Greek’s wonderful cuisine. 3 restaurants in an all inclusive hotel, serving Food that in general is just... so so disappointing. dirty dishes. Bad coffee. Noisy. Too too noisy. Needs cleaning. Location? Well that’s beside the hotel but there is really no reason whatsoever to stay in Chersonissos. Crete is so beautiful and rewarding, Chersonissos is just close to the airport and that is all.

Cretan Malia Park - Mália - Bedroom
10
9.2 Excellent (839 reviews)
Overview Reviews
The Cretan Malia Park is a distinguished hotel situated in a peaceful location on the north coast of Crete. The activities and nightlife in Malia as well as the archeological site with the famous Minoan Palace are in walking distance. One of the unique characteristics of this hotel is its river pool-complete with an artificial beach meandering amongst the garden bungalows. Mature palm trees, laws and colorful gardens adjoin a sandy beach, surround the main building and bungalows. The Cretan Malia Park has plenty to offer for families, couples, or single travelers and its central location on the island makes it an ideal starting point for those wishing to explore the island.From the moment you encounter the 35 palm trees that frame the entrance to Cretan Malia Park, you know that youve entered one of the romantic hideaways in Greece. The style is refined, the pace casual: Wrap yourself in cool cottons and the finest linens, lose yourself in the award-winning gardens, and enjoy the exceptional cuisine. Discreet service, luxurious accommodation, two placid private beaches, and spectacular scenery conspire to create an unforgettable holiday.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: I loved the room and the fact that it had 2 bathrooms and 3 beds..
Cons: The cocktails on the beach bar.. were not good.. and i would wipe the floor in the room better, so that if you walk without shoes you fon’t get dirty.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location is excellent if you prefer all inclusive. There are a couple of restaurants nearby hotel, but for the rest you either have 20 minutes walk or get a taxi to Malia center. Plenty of car rentals. Don’t miss an opportunity for sightseeing. Animation team have programs for both kids and adults. There is music program every evening.
Cons: Everything was great, although mosquitos were annoying some time.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything! Best service I ever got. Truly satisfying. I recommend it to everyone!!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect
Cons: I expected The reception to have more info about the area and the activities
9.3 Excellent
Pros: We have had a very nice holiday and would definitely recommend it to our friends and family. Our room was spacious (we stayed in a bungalow with the garden view), I really liked that the room was cleaned every day, every day new towels and toiletries. Animation team and staff were very lovely and friendly and helpful. The buffet had plenty of variety for every taste and the food was good and everyday fresh juice is being squeezed- is a nice touch. There are also enough other options for lunch and dinner on the premises - the greek restaurant is very nice, although portions are very big! The beach shack is a lovely place with tasty food as well. I love the fact that the hotel is green and eco-friendly - like using bio straws and not washing bed linnen everyday to conserve water. The beach is well maintained with sunbeds available for hotel guests. All in all very pleasent experience! Thank you!
Cons: As for a few cons: - Charge for water at the buffet - we paid a substantial amount of money for our stay and it would have been nice for water to be included in the price. - I would love an iron to have in the room - The lunch price at the buffet is the same as dinner price - which is quite strange. - the prices for alcohol (buffet especially) are very high! One glass of wine at the buffet is 8€ , one small bottle of wine is 12€ - thats in my opinion a bit much
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is very nice with a nice lobby and good communal areas. The rooms are of a good size, clean and include all the amenities you would expect. Staff were fantastic, very friendly and welcoming and to a tee were very accommodating. The buffet food for breakfast and dinner was fantastic with a large selection of different foods. The Cretan restaurant is also worth visiting at least once to try local cuisine. Definitely download the app upon arrival, a nice feature is that the beach beds are each numbered and you can order drinks via the app to be delivered to your spot. All dinner reservations at each restaurant can be made via the app. The beach is very nice and there is plenty of room so it never felt like a huge rush to get a sun bed each day. The sea is very clean here, water is very clear with only minimal seaweed. The layout of the hotel is fantastic and even though they were fully booked it never feels crowded.
Cons: It is a little isolated which could be an issue depending on what you are looking for, but it is only a 20 minute walk to Malia. The all inclusive rules are a little strange... I expect for example that only certain drinks are included and not every type of lager spirit etc, this is normal in most places, however what is strange at this hotel is that this is not consistent throughout each bar or restaurant, e.g drinks that are free in the main lobby are different to those that are free at the beach bar. Also some of the food is not included either. e.g at the Italian restaurant it’s reasonable to expect to pay a supplement for steak etc but to get snacks from the beach bar in my opinion is not expected. It’s worth pointing this out as it is just confusing sometimes and a little unnecessary it should at least be consistent bar to bar. Whilst the food generally was great I was very disappointed with the Italian restaurant, I ordered the meatballs which were raw in the middle and had to be sent back. (In fairness without any fuss or issue) the BBQ near the main building again meat not properly cooked on the kebabs and were raw in the middle. Just be careful and check the food that has come from the grill, I am aware that mistakes happen especially when cooking at scale in a hotel or restaurant but raw meat is never a good thing, these were two isolated incidents though and I want to be clear that In general the food was very good.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel had a great atmosphere - very relaxed. We liked the décor. The swimming pools were lovely and so was the beach. The food was very good. Our children loved the ice-creams and crepes at The Crush. we really enjoyed having a cocktail at the Beach Shack. My massage at the Spa was wonderful.
Cons: We were on an all-inclusive plan which meant that, although most food and drink items were included, some were only available at an additional cost. This made it a bit complicated. The evening entertainment was a bit dull.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Bangalow, buffet for breakfast and diner offering a large choice of food (including Cretan diet food). Cretan restaurant is great as well. The pools (the one for the kids and the ones for the adults). The kids disco & activities for kids with the animators. The hotel in general is nice, not so crowded, very close to the beach. Some Greek tavernas available nearby (5 minutes walk).
Cons: Bed for the child (2,5 years) did not have a protection on the side, so he fell several times while sleeping. Also, we went on a one-day visit to Santorini. Staff told us that a dinner bag would wait for us in the evening. They gave it to us indeed, but it contained a banana, a small orange juice and a pear. We would have expected at least a sandwich. Location - quite far from Malia town, nothing to visit around.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Outstanding experience! It was our first time taking vacations on Crete and our only expectation was to rest. Thanks to Cretan Malia Park hotel our 12 days were fabulous. Starting with the worm welcome, everything what followed was perfect. The service, the stuff all over the place, the room and room service, the additional activities offered by the hotel, like cooking lessons, vine testing, Cretan dinner,... Very special and outstanding heartfull feeling creates Cretan Restaurant Mouries, the place itself, the perfect Cretan food mainly prepared by hotel main chef and kind and perfect cooking staff, and even more the young and sincere restaurant manager. Knowing and feeling the guests wishes and desires. Outstanding experience!! We would like to kindly congratulate the Management of the hotel to be present practically all over the day on all places. It was our first time that hotel General Manager and the hotel Management serve to hotel guests’ dinner, to show us their respect. Really perfect and worm feeling, that on every step somebody is taking care for you. We would like to highly recommend the hotel and for sure we will do that again. We had a perfect vacations. Thank you!
Cons: Of course we tried also a new Italian restaurant. It tries to be fancier with ambitious manager, but except the location and food itself, the impression that the restaurant leaves is rather poor. We try three times, firstly also to celebrate daughter birthday, but we never catch the staff on right leg. Last dinner we finished beside the fish refrigerator, no matter if other better tables were free all the evening. So our suggestion to the young manager would be to learn from the Mauries place. At such a beautiful place it is really not a question to have food to survive, we, as a hotel guests, want to experience a nice dinner time close to the beach, without unsuccessful fight for a better table in the restaurant… But, newer the less, we build up the impression taking the last desert at the Mauries, outstanding and heartfull and unforgettable again.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel has been neatly renovated but is a bit pricy considering the rather basic facilities and service.
Cons: Breakfast buffet was rich in choice but of average quality.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property was fantastic. Great location a short walk away from beach restaurants and bars. The apartments themselves, we stayed in the new apartments completed in May 2018, were superb. They were clean, well furnished light and bright. We particularly enjoyed breakfast on out balcony to start the day. Swimming pool was clean and perfect for a dip to cool down and the area around the pool was great with trees providing natural shade. Would recommend to anyone and would return again if we look to visit the area in the future.
Cons: The only thing I would say is that the kitchen lacked a couple of simple things - washing up liquid, dish cloth and tea towel. It would also be good to have tall glasses as well.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: We loved the cats. There was a family of 4 kittens and their mum living on our veranda! Large appartment, nice pool, good bar area, great layout of complex. Laundry area was an added bonus. Kids liked the pool table. Staff were friendly and helpful. Plenty of clean towels provided. Very conveniently situated for access to water parks.
Cons: Bathroom would benefit from some updating. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was an extra charge on arrival but couldn’t have managed without it. There could have been more going on in the bar area - there was a singer on one night but that was it which meant that the bar was very quiet most evenings.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Clean and calm place for a week of vacation. Excellent personnel! Facilities good and close to the beach. The possibility to take the bus to Hersonissos was also nice. Transfer to the airport also good.

I would not recommend this hotel for your stay in Heraklion but the one just beside for example (Mirabello where we had a way better time).

Cons: On the day of arrival I needed to grab a phone charger out of my suitcase. One staff member told me it was okay, so I opened my suitcase in the lounge at reception, a few moments later I was approached by another staff member who got quite angry and said if I wanted to open my suitcase I would need to go down to the basement. Thankfully by the time he came over I had already grabbed what I needed and was in the process of zipping my suitcase back up, but he was extremely rude.

Pros: The hotel itself was nice, room was generous, had a balcony and the pool facilities were fantastic. We were celebrating and they left a cake in our room, which was a lovely touch.
Cons: At check in, the ladies seemed great and helpful. They offered to order us a taxi at €25, which we accepted. Later on the night before we were due to leave, we discovered the taxi hadn’t been booked and actually, if you book on the day (it took 10 seconds on the day), it is €10-15 cheaper. On check out, the man at the desk was rude and very unhelpful.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Having never been on an all inclusive holiday before we didn’t know what to expect from Arminda. This property far exceeded any of our expectations. The staff are phenomenal, the facilities are amazing and the location is ideal. The rooms were perfect, they had a mini fridge and bathroom was perfect for 2 of us. Spent very little time in the room during the day. The variety of pools and lounge areas are amazing. We used the pool closest to the beach mostly which had amazing views and a cool sea breeze. The beach is a stones throw away and amazing to relax on. Highly recommend the water sports!!! The staff were beyond helpful, anything we wanted or needed, we didn’t have to ask twice. We had a late flight home and the hotel provided a luggage room to store our suitcases while we relaxed all day and we were able to avail of onsite showers to freshen up before departure. Such a nice comfort. Travelling with a very picky eater we were a bit skeptical about the food. On reflection had nothing to worry about. The variety for breakfast/lunch/dinner is amazing. We were going up and down for seconds and thirds at each meal. The salads, desserts and fresh fruit selections are huge. The hotel is also situated a lovely walking distance between 2 beautiful towns. We altered our routes between both and the ease of access is brilliant. Would not hesitate to return here, could not be happier. Huge thank you to all the amazing staff and entertainment, you made this holiday one to remember.

Pros: The hotel is great for a family vacation with little kids. The staff across the hotel was always with a smile and willing to help. Animation team is super lively. Rooms were clean.
Cons: Food was a bit dry and tasteless some days. Not a lot of explanations was given upon arrival to the hotel. The nearby beach situation is not clear. Is it public? does it belong to the hotel next door?
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Extremely nice and very family friendly hotel. The rooms where fresh and clean, staff very friendly and helpful, food was great. And the animation team was really amazing, our daughter was big fan of their shows :) There is a hotel beach 100m down from hotel and bigger public beach 10min walk from there. Our daughter had some ear inflammation and to our surprise there was a doctor that was coming to the hotel twice a day just for this kind of emergencies. And travel insurance covered everything. Great service!
Cons: The drinks, especially coffee was far from what one could wish, but it is a matter of cost i guess.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Personnel's behavior is the definition of hospitality. With my wife, we enjoyed the most relaxed and carefree holidays we had ever. Congratulations to all, from receptionists to cleaning ladies to waitpersons.
Cons: Everything.
6.8 Good
Pros: Staff very friendly and helpful. Food in general was good - you get a fair selection for every meal, and there are options for kids. Food quality was above what I expected. View from sea view rooms is good. Superior rooms are recently renovated.
Cons: Hotel is located close to the sea, but it does not have it's own beach and is completely surrounded by other, large all inclusive hotels. You easily can walk down to a beach, which belongs to another hotel, but the beach itself is not very good and you need to pay for sunbeds/umbrellas. The territory is comparatively small, and if the hotel is full, it feels very cramped. There are 2 medium sized pools and a few smaller pools for kids. Pools get very busy and by about 11:00 all sunbeds are taken. Because of the number of people, pools and surrounding areas do not feel clean. I have not seen staff cleaning the areas or pools and there was always sand on the bottom of the pools. Rooms are small. We stayed at recently renovated superior family room facing the lower pool area and the sea. There is no shampoo/conditioner and other amenities except for liquid hand soap. There was a dispenser for shampoo in the shower, but even that was empty when we arrived and stayed empty until we left. Sleep quality is low. Even though the room was recently updated, the beds were extremely squeaky. Double bed is actually two mattresses which are not level and form a "V" shape when two adults sleep on them. Outside terrace smelled like sewers due to a canalization manhole placed right outside. Not much personal space here as well, neighbors on all sides, some smoking. There is some music on the sea facing side until about 23:30. All of the above starts really getting on your nerves about 3 days in.

The hotel is very well located, surrounded beautiful gardens and has a very good beach. The staff are mega helpful and friendly. At breakfasts and dinners we had a good choice of delicious food. We were out for lunch most of the time. There are a lot of restaurants around. WiFi had a good reception, we were able to watch movies on Netflix. We are planning to book this hotel for the next our holidays
Cons: Gym needs an update

Pros: We felt like with the family. The hotel stuff were amazing, very hospitable, almost all of them speak several languages and will do their best to make you happy and relaxed. And the food was amazing, compliments to the chef. Location of hotel in Malia is good so one can easily explore central and eastern Crete.
