Santa Marina Beach Hotel is ideally located on the long and sandy beach of the most cosmopolitan resort in west Crete, 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.

The large main swimming pool (425 sqm) with lifeguard on duty, 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.

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.

At Santa Marina Beach Hotel we understand that holiday time away with family is limited and as such should be full and rich in quality alone. The facilities have been designed with guest’s priorities and conveniences in mind. While everyone has the opportunity to settle down, unwind and relax at SANTA MARINA BEACH RESORT, we also offer to families the possibility to have fun, and be entertained. It is with this understanding and respect that the hotel offers a Mini Club, Entertainment/Animation and other children’s facilities.
