    Location 7.0 /10

    The Santa Marina is located 4 miles from Heraklion, in the heart of the village of Amoudara. It takes fifteen minutes to reach the Cretan capital's international airport. The hotel borders a long sand beach.

    Accommodation 6.50 /10

    Decorated in grey, white, and beige tones, the 208 rooms of the Santa Marina are simple, but comfortable. They feature a bathroom with a hair dryer, a direct international access telephone, a radio, a refrigerator, satellite television, and centrally controlled air conditioning (only from 1st June to 30th September). All rooms have a balcony or a terrace. However, only 50 rooms have a seaview. All other rooms overlook the hotel gardens.

    Overview 6.50 /10

    Built in 1990, the Santa Marina is a large, modern hotel complex desperately short of charm. It includes a main, two-storey building (150 rooms) and a few one-storey bungalows (58 rooms). Fortunately, spacious green spaces extend from the lobby to the beach, which partly covers the grey concrete aspect of the complex. In the heart of the gardens, a large solarium with deckchairs and parasols (free) circles the swimming pool and the children's pool.

    Food and drink 7.00 /10

    Breakfast and dinner are served buffet style in a large, simple, rather dark dining room. Local and international cuisine are not high-class, but decent for a hotel of this category. Full-board guests have access to the buffet for lunch. Others can eat inexpensively at the pool snack bar (count ?4 to ?5 or £4 for a Greek speciality dish). In addition to the main bar located in the lobby, the hotel includes two other bars: one by the pool, and one on the beach, which has the appearance of a large straw kiosk.

    Beach 7.50 /10

    Below the hotel, the beach is large and well-equipped. It is covered with sand and, by the water, small pebbles and a rocky seabed. Deckchairs and parasols are offered for a fee (?1.5 or £1 a piece). 0.5 miles from the hotel, an independent water sports club offers various activities for a fee.

    To know

    The Santa Marina is open from April to end-October, and located in the small village of Amoudara, near Heraklion. It is an ideal location for those who seek a lively sea-side resort: beach, bars, nightclub, shops and other services.
