My partner and I stayed at Royal Marmin for one week in October. Amazing place with a lovely surrounding. View from our balcony was breathtaking. The food was varied each day and delicious. No complaints at all. Everything was perfect.

The sea was rather chilly and the beautiful pool even colder, but we did go in October. The sea did eventually warm up, so could have a nice swim. Bar prices are rather...

The Royal Marmin is a very unique hotel mainly because of its setting on a very steep hill. The buildings are modern and sleek, with golf carts to drive you from one to the other. Swimming pools, contemporary architecture, service all excellent. The view is absolutely fantastic!! The only disappointment is the beach, which is not interesting really: an artificially...

Although on the side of a steep hill it is a great place to stay and relax with wonderful views over the bay, Spinalonga and Elounda. I mentioned the steepness of the location, but we had no problem getting around the property with the golf buggies doing the hard yards. The rooms, restaurant, pool area and grounds were all kept...
