Board:Half Board
(3 suns)

Where the Santa Marina Beach Hotel is situated in Agia Marina there are several restaurants and several shops but basically very quiet. The beach is ideal for youngsters as the sea is nice and shallow with lifeguards always in attendance. This resort has a "fun train" which is ideal for children and older people which has got several routes everyday, well worth using to travel to places you wouldn't go to normally.

Holiday Date:30th Aug 2017
Accommodation:Epimenidis Hotel

Lovely resort , very long beach with a mixture of shingle in places but fine golden sands if you walk on a bit further - the best end for water sports being directly opposite the offshore island.<br /> <br /> The bonus to this resort is evening entertainment, lots of choices of Tavernas in Agia Marina and even more if prepared to make a short walk to the many bars and tavernas in the next resort Platania ,and the Square which is lively.

All tavernas of a similar standard, which is generally good, with one or two of them being of very high standard. Prices vary but in spite of every thing Crete still remains a cheap holiday.

A lot of places have shut down. Been going there for many years now and has changed a lot. Food prices are ok but beer prices have shot up. This I think is due to brexit which is just an excuse to bump prices up, still cheaper in Albufeira Portugal where we will be going back to all the time now. Going with you in September.

Accommodation:Minos Village

There were plenty of beach areas and lots of places to eat at lunchtime. Sunbeds were cheap (3 euros for day each) or free at some if you ate in their taverna. Most of the tavernas had a similar menu but the food was a good standard overall. The sea was easy to access in most places. There were plenty beach based activities too eg. jet ski, pedalos, paddle-boards, parasailing, sofas being pulled around etc. <br /> <br /> A good bus service takes you to Chania town in 15 minutes which is well worth a visit. Platanias and Stalos either side of AG so resorts merge. All are good places to visit or stay.

Great sandy beach. Probably gets busy in high season. Very safe for children as water is shallow. Great base to explore a truly beautiful side of Crete. Water Park. Fun Train excursions. Crazy golf. Shops. Good value for money.

Mixed feelings. Plus side - good and safe bathing, plenty of restaurants, short bus ride from Chania, buses frequent. Minus - on the edge of being tacky, beaches could be litter cleaned better or bins provided. All in all we found that Crete is a fabulous place and the people we came across were charming and courteous.

I had been to the resort before so knew what to expect. I like it because it's not too noisy and yet is interesting enough for a sole traveller to wander around. It also feels very safe to walk around at night time. One of the best things for me is the beach which is brilliant. I love swimming in the sea, which is so warm! The beach is a very gradual slope, so easy to get in and out of the water - an important factor as one gets older.

The position of the hotel and the beach area was good. As we were half board we did not try the local restaurants some of which looked ok. We felt that Agia Marina itself is very commercialised with lots of shops selling the same type of goods and making it a bit downmarket. Overall we enjoyed our holiday and were very satisfied with our booking through Sunshine.co.uk

Would recommend Chania to visit .. a beautiful Venetian town with lovely Harbour. There was a grassy area which led from the pool bar of our hotel to the beach with five steps onto the beach. Amazing. There was a life guard in attendance, plenty of sun beds, a beautiful warm sea that is shallow for quite a way out, a sandy beach what more could we ask for.

Lovely area, close enough to Chania town based between Agia Apostolia where it is quieter and Platanius a little bit more touristy. Agia Marina is that little bit of both it can be as loud or as low key as you want it. There are plenty of restaurants and tavernas on the main strip or wander up into the old village and eat here for a more subdued atmosphere and should you wish to sit and have a drink most are happy for you to do so, just watch that raki. The beach has various activities like yoga sessions, para boarding you can even have a massage, there are catered comfy sun beds with music if you want a bit of luxury or for something more subdued. Plenty of trips to various magnificent beaches and places, a little tour train that takes you to places out into the countryside and the local buses are cheap and regular if you want to visit Chania town which if you like history or shopping is a must. This is our second time here and can't wait for our third.

There is nothing wrong with the resort. However we tend to head to the beautiful mountains of Crete rather than spend time around the bars and tourist shops. It is very easy to get out into the country from Agia Marina. If restaurants and tourist shops are your thing, then the resort won't disappoint.

It is a family resort with plenty of restaurants which are all very reasonably priced. The beach area is also large, and we found no problems finding an area to sit or find sunbeds to use. There are 2 small fun parks with go-karts and amusements for the kids. There are plenty of supermarkets to do any shopping for items. A bus service runs every 10 mins in to Chania one way and in to Platanius that other way.

Although fronting onto a busy main road, the hotel accommodation faced out onto the beach and Med sea, so was very quiet and peaceful. Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants along the main road and up into the village beyond, if you had the inclination. Regular bus service into Chania, and taxis always available. Everyone seemed very open and welcoming, which added to our holiday enjoyment.

Beaches

The beach is a 2.5km stretch of sand and has been awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness. There is a good selection of watersports available or for those that prefer to relax, sunloungers are laid out for hire. Due to its length, the beach never really gets crowded even in the peak season.

Nearby Attractions

The former capital city of Chania is just a 20 minute local bus ride away and here is a Venetian style harbour lined with tavernas and bars. Additionally visitors to Chania can visit the Turkish mosque, 17th century fortress and lighthouse. The local bus service which runs frequently into Chania and Platanias is just a short walk away.

Quick Facts

Chania Airport is approximately 29 km away - transfer time approx. 40 minutes.
