The Club Syrtaki Mari Beach is a small and very basic family hotel located at the end of the Georgioupolis bay, isolated enough for holidaymakers to enjoy peaceful surroundings in between days spent sightseeing around Crete.

    Location 6.5 /10

    The Club Syrtaki Mari Beach stands rather isolated on the seafront, 2,5 mi from the little port of Georgioupolis, 12 mi from Rethymnon and some 62 mi from the island's capital, Heraklion, with a transfer time of around 1 hour and 30 minutes by car from the international airport.

    Accommodation 5.95 /10

    The hotel's 60 or so guest rooms are extremely basic and most have a floor area of around 15m², with the exception of the triple rooms. The wooden double beds are hard and not very thick and take up most of the space in the room, even though they are not that big. Amenities include a tiny little television mounted on the wall, a safe, individual air conditioning (for a fee of nearly 4,5 pounds!), a refrigerator and a telephone. The only lighting in the rooms comes from the few bare bulbs dotted around the place. The square bathrooms offer the same minimal level of comfort, with a small shower, a very basic washbasin, a mirror, some soap and a hair dryer. Also, keep in mind that the soundproofing is very poor.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The club was built 20 or so years ago and renovated in 2009. It is open from the French Easter holidays through to the end of October. Guests are welcomed by the hotel's mascot, a German Shepherd, in the small reception of this family-run club hotel, where indeed the grandmother, father and brother of the family still work. The old fashioned brown sofas arranged facing the reception desk set the tone in terms of decor, whilst outside, this unique white building, of a maximum of two storeys and built perpendicular to the sea, is adorned with blue-painted balconies and little red-tiled awnings. Adults will enjoy the small, 45m² rectangular pool whilst the children paddle about in their own 15m² pool. A few deck chairs and parasols are arranged around the edge. There is no children's club, though.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    An extension alongside the reception now houses the hotel's restaurant, a round room closed off by many large picture windows and where the tables are arranged very close together. The restaurant is open from 7:30am to 10:00am and from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. The continental breakfast offers very little in the way of variety, but the local produce served at dinner, which includes vegetables grown in the owner's fields, is of a much higher standard. The oil and wine are also personally produced by the manager. The blue cement terrace facing the small swimming pool opens for 1 hour at lunch time, but looking at the outdated surroundings you probably won't feel like taking a seat here and ordering one of the few dishes from the limited menu on offer.

    Beach 6.45 /10

    Those who like the beach will be pleased to know they will have it all to themselves here, as the areas either side of the hotel remain undeveloped. The hotel stands at the end of the Georgioupolis bay, and whilst the brown sand is fine and the waters perfectly clear, there are a few pebbles about in the water. The width of the beach, however, is small compared to those of the vast majority of the hotels in the surrounding area. You will find a few deck chairs in various colours are provided.

    To know

    The club offers its guests a variety of board bases, namely all-inclusive, full-board and half-board. More often than not, holidaymakers staying here tend to spend their days off on excursions, except in July and August. The entertainment team of 3 organises evening entertainment 6 nights a week.
