    Location 6.0 /10

    The Marina Beach is located 10 miles east of Heraklion, and about 9 miles from Kazanzakis international airport. Built in 1979 in a park of thirty hectares, the hotel is located in the village of Kato Gournes, approximately 6 miles east of Hersonissos. Therefore, it is in an urban setting, so it is not very quiet, and one must cross the street to go to the beach. The surroundings are not very appealing.

    Accommodation 7.00 /10

    The Marina Beach has 400 identical rooms, overlooking the road and the sea on one side, and the swimming pool and garden on the other side. They have a small balcony or terrace, but the air conditioning is centrally controlled (except in bungalows, where it is individually controlled). Amenities are minimal: a telephone (direct international line) and a refrigerator. The television and the safe must be rented. The bathroom has a tub and a hair dryer.

    Overview 7.00 /10

    The large lobby, very dark in this sunny country, lacks class and conviviality. In addition, the uniformity of the architecture of the hotel's three main 4-storey buildings evokes the suburbs of some western cities. The hotel's 90 bungalows display a less sad feeling, even though the disappointment generated by this place is increased by insufficient maintenance and cleanliness. Last, the grounds are fenced all around with railings and fences, which gives the unpleasant impression of being locked up.

    Food and drink 7.50 /10

    The Marina Beach has four restaurants, including a (very noisy) self-service restaurant open all day near the swimming pool. The main restaurant is rather austere and lacks light. For each meal, various buffets, including one Greek cuisine buffet, are offered. In addition, two à la carte restaurants are open for dinner, and there are three bars on the site: in the lobby, by the pool, and on the beach.

    Beach 6.50 /10

    The beach of the hotel is on the other side of the street: it is only a beach by its name, since it has a very artificial appearance and does not look natural at all. It is a sort of concrete platform, covered with yellow mud and a thin layer of sand, on which you will find deckchairs, parasols (for a fee), showers, and changing rooms. It faces a retaining reservoir while the sea is behind the pier. As around the swimming pool, it is hard to find a seat, since the area is small.

    To know

    The beach earned a ''Blue Flag'' award from the European Union, which is given to beaches that are clean, sheltered from waves and wind, and respectful of nature. By the way, it is important to note that this label does not take comfort or beauty into consideration. Indeed, the beach of the Marina Beach is practically nonexistant. The hotel is open from April to the end of October.

      The Ariadne Beach is a well-maintained budget hotel with simple comforts. Located alongside a sandy beach, all the essentials have been put in place for a peaceful seaside holiday. Most guests here opt for the half-board option.

      • Value for money 6.72
      • Location 10.0

      The newly-built Lavris hotel blatantly lacks charm, and its unfortunate location, a ten-minute walk from the beach, certainly does it no favours, though despite the rather austere furnishing, the bungalows and rooms here are well maintained and reasonably well equipped. The hotel operates on a bed and breakfast, half-board, full-board or even all-inclusive basis.
