    Location 6.5 /10

    The Agapi Beach is located in Ammoudara, the beach resort the closest to Heraklion (4 miles). The hotel is located 7 miles from the international airport. Count about fifteen minutes for transfers.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    Charmless and cold hallways lead to the various rooms. The rooms are very simple, tiled, painted in white and grey, and only decorated with two local paintings. Standard rooms only feature a direct telephone and a safe (for a fee). The bathrooms are small and ordinary (sink, tub or shower, toilet). The large balcony overlooks the sea (90 rooms) or the gardens (50 rooms). For a supplement, you can stay in a ''superior'' room. Of the same dimension as standard rooms, they have air conditioning, satellite television, a hair dryer, and a refrigerator.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Built in 1987 and renovated in 2000, the Marilena is a small, very simple hotel with 150 rooms. The rooms are distributed among a 3-storey modern building decorated in local style (whitewashed walls, stained wood...). The inside of the hotel is very simple: The lobby is not very appealing, although spacious, and there is a tiny sitting room, a television area, and a bar with a terrace overlooking the swimming pool area. Between the hotel and the road, the swimming pool (4,300 square feet) is surrounded by the path leading to the parking area. It features a tiled solarium, and plastic deckchairs. Below, by the road, two lawns also offer deckchairs and parasols (free) as well as a playground and a snack-bar. An activity leader offers sports and game activities during the day. In addition, the hotel organises a theme evening and a show 4 times a week.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The restaurant is divided in two small rooms with limited privacy and uneasy access to buffets. This is where breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served. The choice is limited and the quality of the food is generally dispappointing. Once a week, the hotel organises a Greek or Italian evening. If you are a half-boarder, you can have a quick lunch at the snack bar whose menu includes a decent selection of Greek specialities, pasta, and grilled food (count about ?4 or £3 for one dish).

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The hotel is not built directly on the seashore. To go to the beach, you will have to cross the coastal highway and walk 980 feet before setting foot in the sand. Theoretically, the guests of the hotel are allowed to use the beach of the Agapi Beach, opposite this hotel. It is a fine, blond sand beach, carefully cleaned daily. Despite the presence of large factories at the extremity of the coast, the water is very clean (analysed weekly). Actually, this part of the coast is awarded the Blue Flag, the European environmental label, every year. Regarding amenities, you will find deckchairs, parasols, showers, and changing rooms. A water sports club offers various seaside activities.

    To know

    Please note that the sea orientation also offers a view of the very ugly building of the Agapi Beach hotel (across from the Marilena), the city, and the road! The rooms overlooking the garden are quieter, but also darker. It is your choice!
