If island-style village holidays are your dream, Marine Palace & Aqua Park in Crete is the place to be! This beloved all-inclusive resort offers the best of both worlds with a world-class resort next to the idyllic traditional fishing village of Panormo. The hotel is organised like a typical Cretan village. Clusters of lemon-, tangerine-, strawberry-, and vanilla-coloured bungalows surround the large swimming pools. A winding path meanders between the main building, the cluster of bungalows on the upper level and the seafront bungalow village.

Designed with families in mind, the resort offers all the special amenities families need – like convenient family-sized rooms and bungalows with separate children’s room. The beautiful Casa Marina is the epitome of luxury and style. The suites, built in a peaceful area above the main hotel, encircle a tranquil pool. The choices for self-catering accommodation are endless - large family suites with sea view verandas, double suites that echo the azure Mediterranean and convenient fully-equipped family apartments. Guests at Casa Marina have the best of both worlds.
Add an Elixir Spa, endless opportunities to dine al fresco, amazing Aqua Park – Kingdom of Poseidon, numerous pools, awarded beach, Cretan hospitality and service, family packed activities and all-inclusive arrangements. What more can you ask for?
