Absolutely loved our stay!!! The staff are exceptional, everywhere is clean and tidy, comfortable rooms, a lovely pool... bar area and free sun beds on the private section of the beach.Great location with a big supermarket literally just across the road, plus plenty of shops, bars and restaurants right on the doorstep (without being too noisy)Chania is well worth a visit and is just a cheap bus ride away. We also hired a car (via reception) and drove to beautiful Falassarna beach, had dinner at Captain Nikolas and then stayed for the sunset. Also drove into the mountains to the Botanical Park and Gardens. A very pleasant 2 hours spent exploring and well worth the €7 entrance fee.All in all can highly recommendread more

A beautifully situated hotel right on the sandy beach with lovely views. However, be careful. A standard room with... terrace will put you on the ground floor which in reality is the basement with no views or outlook from your terrace. To be allocated this room at midnight after 2300 miles was unacceptable. They wanted another 200 euros for an upgrade and 400 for a Seaview!! We moved but only to a slightly better standard room. They didn't really care. Breakfast was excellent and the staff serving were wonderful. 30 mins on the frequent bus service into Chania which is a stunning town with excellent restaurants and shops. And the people are so friendly.read more

Thalassa Beach Resort located next to a really nice beach. The staffs there are super nice and I really want to mention... the Pool Bar staff Manos, who is really humorous, hospitable and friendly. My husband and I really enjoyed having drink at the bar and talking to him in the evening. Also, the reception lady Athina was also super helpful and nice. She gave us ideas and tips about Samaria Gorge. It was really nice experience there.Ps, there is a super cute hotel cat there ☺️read more

The room was clean. The staff is very nice. Breakfast is good with some nice variety (but the coffee and tea could be... improved). The dinner is awful (seriously it is poor quality especially the seafood which was inedible) and overpriced compare to every meal we ate anywhere in Crete over many years of visits. The room to which we were “upgraded” had a staircase separating the bed area from the bathroom (not desirable) and our balcony overlooked many other balconies and a parking lot instead of the “garden view” we paid for. Most awful is that our room smelled of cigarette smoke even after several days! Even on hot days the pool was quite cold and no one used it. I would not return to this hotel and would recommend either a stay in a nearby mountain village or a hotel at the beach that is more ho eat about what it is. This one is quite dated (though the bathrooms have been updated?read more

Good place for couples and adults, who enjoy relaxed and peace. No kids hotel, and you can experience it enjoying quiet... and stillness. Rooms arent too well isolated, so in evenings U can hear ppl walking and talking in hallway. It would be nightmare if kids would be allowed, luckily they arent.Workers are nice and polite, helpful.Place is clean and clearly for adults favours.Definetly would come here again if we decide to stay Agia Marina again.read more

Although we haven't tried the hotel restaurant yet but if the snack bar is anything to go by it should be good.Plenty of available sunbeds.read more

What a great hotel, first and foremost the staff are excellent, attentive, friendly and informative. Cleanliness of... everything 10/10. Lovely gardens, bar, pool and beach on site.We had a really great split level room which was unexpected, as it happened we had very bad weather(due to storm Daniel) and had our room not have been so superb we would have been sooo miffed tbh. The breakfast is plentiful, fresh, hot, with some interesting extras like lemon and almond syrup juice, delish. Enjoyed our stay immensely. Would highly recommend. Thank you Thalassa xread more

This resort was the perfect place for us to start our honeymoon! The room was very clean and spacious, the bathtub fit... two of us easily, and it had all the amenities needed and more. Keep in mind that it is like a loft, so it can get hot where the bed is sometimes since there is no conditioner on the upper level.It is comfortably located on the beach, so it is a short walk for tanning and swimming and you get a nice view of the ocean. The pool was clean and nice as well, however the jacuzzi wasn’t warm, just had bubbles.The restaurants for dinner and lunch on site both were reasonably priced and had delicious food. Also, the breakfast buffet had lots of variety and was amazing!!The location is about 20 min from Chania which is what we were searching for and centrally located to the places we drove to such as Elofanissi beach, Seitan Limania, and Balos.The hotel itself is not located in a “quiet” or secluded area since it is surrounded by other hotels next door and shops across the street as well, however, it was a convenient walk for us for nearby markets.The staff was very professional and friendly. There was always someone to help at the front desk.read more

This year (2023) we spent our vaction in Thalasso Beach Resort for the third time. The entire staff is very friendly... and it feels like family.The breakfast is perfect and offers everything you desire. The beds by the pool and on the beach are very comfortable and you willalways find a nice and quiet spot. The snack bar (Ouzaki) directly at the beach has a nice view and offers delicous food all day long.The pool bar with the chairs directly inside the pool offers perfect cocktails an with Manos, the Barkeeper, you have the best Barmixer in Greece.Also the spa in the hotel is very professional and offers a lot of good things for your body.You also have to say that the hotel is „Adults Only“, so it is really very quiet.If you don`t want to eat in the hotels restaurant, which is very good with perfect quality, you can reach a lot of restaurants within a few minutes walkingdistance.We can recommend this hotel and we will come back as soon as possible.Best regards, Martin und Isabellaread more

A special shout out for all the breakfast staff, highly professional, so we'll organised and friendly. Great adult only hotel with a beautiful private beach. Highly recommend.read more

Literally the best hotel I’ve been to. Amazing breakfast, so much to choose from and you even get bubble wine. The... Greek salad on the lunch is literally to die for, amazing!!! The food is amazing otherwise, my partner said he had the best meal he’s ever had on this hotel.The staff is super friendly, the room is really nice and clean. The pool is good and the sun beds too.

We are almost at the end of a week's stay at Thalassa Beach and it has been outstanding. The staff, food & service... levels are truly exceptional. Very comfortable beds. Brilliant breakfast buffet which echoes the evening meal (we are twice in the restaurant). Hotel sunloungers extend on to the beach directly in front of the hotel. Would recommend without hesitationread more

My friend and I just returned from our 10-day vacation and loved the hotel. The staff were exceptionally friendly,... always helped us in need (e. g. by booking a rental car for us) and it was evident that they love what they do. The breakfast buffet offered local delicacies as well as fresh fruit, different varieties of eggs, gluten-free options and much more. Our room was clean and provided us with everything we needed, i. e. clean beach towels on request. We especially enjoyed the adult-only policy since we were looking for a peaceful vacation. The staff have succeeded making our stay truly memorable. If we ever visit Crete again, we will make sure to stay at Thalassa Beach Resort.read more

Superb holiday with great serviceWe have had a week at this hotel which we booked to celebrate our 25th wedding... anniversary.From the moment we stepped in we knew we had chosen the right place !Prior to coming I sent an email to the hotel asking them to arrange one of their packages ( in secret) so that I could surprise my wife.I booked a package that included ( amongst other things) a couples massage and a romantic dinner served on the beach.The massage was superb and whilst I am no expert my wife who has had a few around the world said it was superb, again all the staff in the spa were professional, friendly and delivered exceptional service.The private meal on the beach was out of this world, the food, service and ambiance was just magical.It would be impossible for me to thank all the staff by name but rest assured that from the cleaners through to the barmen and the waiting staff you could not wish for more, they are truly an asset to the hotel.Finally a big shout out to Andrie Stylianou, the hotels reservations manager who managed to arrange all the extras above in order to surprise my wife during our stay.Again superb service from a dedicated team of professionals who care about their guests.Thank you all !read more

What a fabulous resort! I cannot describe how happy we were with our stay. The staff, the food, accommodation, pool,... private beach; just everything was exceptional. We did a spa day too, hot stone massage and it was one of the best I’ve ever had. We used the gym everyday too and it was very well equipped - my husband was very happy!Thank you to everyone who made our stay so lovely. I miss my daily margarita already!

Great hotel with a private beach. The rooms were very nice and spacious, with all the necessary accomodations for a... 4-star hotel and probably even better (lots of towels and cosmetics, slippers, bathrobes, etc) + a nice little balcony. The swimming pool is beautiful and the beach is literally two steps away (not the best beach but still great nonetheless). Breakfast is good even though we had more options in other hotels, but it was still rich and of quality. It was made better by the hospitality of the breakfast team manager which made us feel very welcome and confortable. You can have your breakfast in the terrasse, looking at the beach and swimming pool from one side and if you get the right table, you can also see the snowy mountains on the other side. Staff was always very helpful with a big smile and did their best whenever we asked for recommendations. Cleaning was always done perfectly, thanks to the great cleaning team.The price is very affordable for a hotel of this standing.The location is great also, with a lot of restaurants around and a dozen minutes by car from Chania. We would however recommend eating in Chania for authentic Greek food or in the hotel's restaurant (Elaion) instead of the surrounding ones.tl;dr Great hotel. Spacious beautiful rooms. Great swimming pool. Definitely worth it.read more

I’m not an avid reviewer but, the quality of food (insanely amazing) and service from all of the staff - cleaners,... cooks, front desk, spa, bar, and restaurant - deserves to be called out. It has been simply exceptional. The staff have been super friendly and rightly deserve to be recognised. It’s a lovely resort, clean and with good amenities. It’s well located for easy access to cultural sites up and down the coast. Highly recommend!read more

A solid 4 star hotel by virtue of their friendly and hardworking staff. I stayed in a suite at this resort hotel over... 10 days. The hotel has most of the facilities you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The bed not too comfortable and the shower is quite weak and their old water tank still gives hot and cold water cycles. So your shower will constantly turn hot and cold which is pretty annoying.I am impressed by their restaurant Elaion which I gave a separate review. The food and service is exceptional. Although I only had breakfast and dinner twice during my stay, it has nothing to do with their food or service but my desire to explore other restaurants. Good selection of choice in the breakfast buffet and the dinner menu is quite generous with choice of food too. You have a 4 course meal every dinner, wine not included.I also recommend taking a massage at the Spa to relax tensions, the masseuses are good.Towels are replaced regularly and generously. The staff work hard to keep everything clean. I like the staff, they are warm, helpful and friendly which really make this hotel great and enhance my overall experience despite the shortcomings for the bed and shower.Cleanliness 9/10, bed 6/10, shower 4/10, value for money 7/10.read more

The staff was super friendly and very receptionists. We had an junior suite with sea view also overlooking the pool and... garden. The bed was extremely comfortable and superb to sleep in. Fantastic! Even though the second floor of the suit felt a bit hot since there was only a little ac next to the bed. The rocky beach was sometimes difficult to access - especially when windy with waves. There are nicer beaches around the corner and on the island. The mattresses of the sunbeds could be renewed or kept cleaner. Also the beach. It doesn’t make sense that the spa staff gives away wet wipes that land on the beach and nearly into the sea due to the wind. They gym was ok - with, cardio, weights and TRX but unfortunately without windows. The morning buffet offers a variety of different foods, also local specialities. On the main street outside the hotel you‘ll find everything you need, from restaurants, to shops, bars, supermarkets etc. Albeit not very pretty and run down. The hotel is kept very clean - but everyday we found too many hair balls in our room after the cleaning…. Maybe change the broom or mop/water more often? All in all a very comfortable and relaxing holiday.read more

Wow! Where do I begin ? This resort is a rare combination of the best facilities, location and service that makes your... vacation experience simply delightful !It was my first time in Crete and to tell you the truth this resort was not my first choice but only because the pictures doesn't make it justice. From the moment we made the reservation, through our arrival and our stay we felt so welcomed!The hotel is beautiful, modern, very clean very well maintained. The location is very convenient on the main street with lots of restaurants, taverns and attractions.We had a garden looking room which I loved cause it was very quiet. The pool is amazing and the private beach is just a few steps away. There was always room in the sunbeds, and I loved how clean they were and how they were arranged in a spacious way that you still felt privacy. I loved that the hotel was eco-friendly with saving energy, recycling etc. The breakfast was wonderful, a lot of variety and great Greek foods. All the food in the hotel is very very good we tried the room service, the poor bar snack and we had dinner in the a-la-carte restaurant that was unbelievably delicious and amazing. The cocktails in the pool were superb and we enjoyed them almost daily :)Now coming to the cherry on top, the staff in the hotel (wow!!!!) it made our stay !! Coming from the hospitality industry myself I sometimes tent to overlook things naturally, but I really have nothing simply nothing to improve here... From the lady that checked us in and helped me with the birthday cake for my husband, the entire front desk , the breakfast team (I think the manager name is Nikólaos), the pool staff the Spa ladies really really did above and beyond in every aspect (I'm really sorry that I don't remember more names )!! The house keeping was top notch, out room was always spotlessly clean. Everyone was so welcoming, friendly, always smiling and giving the best of the best felling. Thalassa team you made our honeymoon unforgettable !!! Every interaction with the staff was so pleasant !Nothing to improve, everything was PERFECT !!!Thank you ! We are your guests and friends for life!I cannot wait to come back and of course recommend this place to all my friends and family.There's a reason why this place has so many positive reviews everywhere, this resort is a true Gem of Crete !read more

Stayed here for a week. Half-board. Good size room with big and very comfortable bed, ensuite bathroom with shower and... a balcony. No sea view. Staff all speak good English. Good size pool with bar. Comfortable sunbeds included. Drinks pricey as expected. Breakfast menu extensive, pretty much anything you could want. Evening meal has different set menu every day, limited choice but 5 course meal should you want it. Allow 90mins at least for dinner and you are expected to book a time in advance. The food wasn't to our taste, we found it either too rich or too bland. Best night was buffet night! Would we come back? Maybe as bed and breakfast.read more
