Property Description

Santa Marina Beach Hotel is ideally located on the long and sandy beach of the most cosmopolitan resort in west Crete, the Aghia Marina village. The hotel is built along the sea shore, just 8 kilometers from Chania centre and its must-see old Venetian harbor, while the international airport of Chania lies just 22 km away. The coastal village of Aghia Marina is one of several that line the coastline west of Chania centre and enjoys great views to the islet of St. Thodorou which today is a dedicated breeding ground for the Cretan mountain goat Kri-Kri (protected species). The village is blessed with an abundance of trees and a long sandy beach with crystal clear waters which stretches for just over 2.5 kilometers. Fine golden sand blended with trees along the shoreline make this beach truly exotic. Aghia Marina has maintained the Cretan village feel, atmosphere and island way of life despite being a highly popular holiday destination combining the convenience of modern day life, the facilities and activities for all visitors and the humbleness of Cretan hospitality. SANTA MARINA BEACH is separated into two structures, the beach complex and the pool complex, with a combined total of 190 accommodation units. At the beach complex, the 24 hour reception and lobby area is spacious, airy and fresh. It has several sitting areas including a warm and cozy fireplace lounge, internet corner and main bar. The main restaurant (buffet) and its outdoor seating areas are steps from the sea. The exclusive Azzuro a la carte restaurant, outdoor bar and children’s playground also enjoy this prime location. At the pool complex you can swim and sun bathe on beautifully green grounds surrounding the large swimming pool (separate children’s swimming pool) and pool bar. The fitness room and kids Mini Club are also housed within the pool complex. The main coastal road separates these two complexes and conveniently linking them is an underground tunnel (easy and safe passage, no need to cross over the main street). The hotel consists of 190 guest rooms of various types capable to cater for a wide spectrum of needs. All accommodation units at Santa Marina Beach Hotel have a view either to the garden, pool or to the sea. These are well designed, finely decorated with modern touches, refreshing colors and comfortable furnishings. All guestrooms feature: • Individually controlled Air-Conditioning • Heating • Satellite flat screen TV • Cabled Internet access • Direct-dial Telephone • Safe Deposit Box • Mini Bar • Bathroom with bathtub or shower • Bathroom amenities • Hairdryer • Furnished balconies/terraces The beach lies a step away from the hotel’s terrace, has been awarded a blue flag, is organized with sun beds and umbrellas and has a lifeguard. It is ideal for families with young children as they can play with the sand, build sand castles and enjoy the sun as well as swim and play safely in the shallow sea. The large main swimming pool (425 sqm) with lifeguard is located at the pool complex and is available for all guest use. The maximum depth is 2.80 meters allowing for proper swimming. Sun beds and umbrellas are dotted all around the swimming pool area. Take in the sun surrounded by well kept gardens with palm trees and ever-green grass. At Santa Marina Beach Resort there are two restaurants for you to choose from. The Main Restaurant at the beach complex is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner – all buffet – an endless choice of foods, delicacies, traditional Cretan dishes as well as international dishes. The buffet itself is set up indoors, while seating is available both indoors and on the outdoors terrace beside the sea. The A La carte Azzuro Restaurant is exclusive and pre-booking is necessary as there is limited seating. This is a more private setting at the edge of the outdoor terrace beside the sea with views to the Thodorou island. Natural shade is also provided by the lush ever-green Tamarisk trees. The well priced Azzuro restaurant offers many Cretan and international dishes. The Lobby Bar offers the best in atmosphere and drinks and serves as the hotel’s meeting and reference point, while the Pool Bar spoils the ones choosing to spend the day by the pool. Same time the Beach Bar’s location is hard to find elsewhere: right on the beach front drinks are accompanied with the sounds of the sea and the breathtaking views of the gulf of Chania. Leisure activities include a gym and a choice of wellness treatments directly on the beach front. Walking paths, boat trips and excursions to many interesting sights is readily available. Entertainment / Animation for both adults and children is also specially arranged on occasion and features sports activities such as aqua aerobics and gymnastics, beach volley ball tournaments, fun games and action of the day events. The professional and friendly service combined with superb catering assure the most memorable events on the island of Crete.
