IOLIDA BEACH is a modern 5* resort, literally situated a breath away from the sandy beach of Agía Marína offering a breathtaking view to the Cretan Sea.

Our guests will be charmed by the elegant architecture of our complex that blends modern and traditional elements in perfect harmony with the surrounding landscape. Nonetheless, IOLIDA BEACH does not restrict itself only to that. Our ultimate goal is to meet all tastes, offer friendly and fast service, and satisfy all your requirements and wishes.

IOLIDA BEACH comprises two buildings linked with an impressive glass-walkway that was constructed over the old Chaniá-Kastélli highway providing thus an easy and fast access to all areas of the Hotel. Our Hotel is a paradise for couples and families that seek carefree relaxation in a serene atmosphere, the ideal destination for nature lovers and all those that simply wish to relax or explore the multifaceted nature of Crete.
