We had stayed at Candia Maris on previous trip to Crete in 2004. Facilities were wonderful as was the staff. Still a good resort hotel but things had changed somewhat.
Candia Maris is now an "all-inclusive" resort. Not knowing this we chose the typical European breakfast with lodging plan, which is always sufficient for us. Unfortunately we found out the hard way.....we went to have dinner in the previously very good main restaurant and found that dinner was a very expensive ( 29 euros each) which was mediocre at best. Very disappointing given the restaurant's quality on our previous stay at Candia Maris in 2004.
A very calm hotel with a big territory, bungalow is very nicely situated separately from the main building, warm sea in August + 26c, clean rooms, new (or looiking like new:) furniture and everything in the shower room, free wi-fi in the lobby, very welocoming staff at the breakfast restaurant
The staff forgot to give me a wake-up call in the morning of departure, becauset they forgot to make a note about it, not safe entrance to the sea, you need to use special shoes, the 1st day was injured my foor with an echinus sitting on the stone and the stones are also sharp, not always enough beach towels available
The location was good, just a short bus trip into town, with many taverns and small shops just outside the hotel. The gym was fully equipped and much better than most hotel gyms. We stayed in a bungalow that had a separate pool which was nice, and there were always plenty of seats both there and on the beach.
The gym didn't open til 9, and breakfast finished at 10.00, so it didn't leave any time for a morning workout.
The Candia Maris has nice swimming pools, nice clean rooms.
No wifi internet in the rooms. The beach in front of the hotel is not very nice.
location of the ground floor rooms next to the swimming pool.
fitness centre closed on Synday!!!!!
Peace full setting
Standards have dropped since it changed hands from the Movenpick...........The Spa is extortionate in its pricing .
Excellent pools, excellent beach, excellent view. Very nice breakfast!
Paying extra for internet, that is wrong!
Friendly personel, clean and comfortable rooms, excellent view, beautiful swimming pools and beach, delicious food.
Good comfort of the rooms
I have asked 2 inter-connecting rooms They did not notice our request so the 1rst night we were a little far from my children.The food is not good at this hotel (dinner buffet and beach restaurant) Moreover it is expensive.
Very close to beach; pool is nice; B/F is awesome; hotel staff is very helpful; free internet; car rental available at hotel with free parking.
No music at the pool during the day; no activities in the evening at the hotel; the hotel itself is very nice but we were bored and ended up renting a car and touring around; the hotel beach is ok (nothing special), ... in crete there are so many other beaches that are a lot nicer and a lot more picturesque to visit ...
Surprisingly nice. Everything like brand new. Clean, luxurious. Great location near Heraklion, but like being far away in a great beach resort hotel. Great beach front restaurant, very nice rooms, great views. Great fitness facilites.
Room service closes at 10 p.m.
Genuinely very disappointing - rooms not cleaned properly-sunloungers at pool without comfort matress so unbearable to lie on - poor catering service - apalling location - no facilities in the hotel and not a feeling at all that you were staying in hotel - lacked atmosphere - Would never stay there again- I travel frequently and that had to have been the worst ever -
