Situated in the mountain village of Anogia, Hotel Marina offers rooms with balcony enjoying panoramic views over Psiloritis Mountain. It has a restaurant and provides free Wi-Fi access throughout. It was our secound time here (first time we were in 2016) and this time again I can say nothing negative. A room was very clean, spacious and a bed was very comfortable. A little kitchenette where you can cook something simple for a breakfast or a dinner. A parking space. And a host is extremely friendly. She made everything she can to make our stay at its best. We've spent here only 1 night and it was really not enough since this place is really magical. So beautiful and quiet!! We really enjoyed a view of the mountains from our balcony, the sounds of the sheeps (it was interesting to watch their life!) and birds. Amazing experience, really recommend!! Additionally - it is also a good place to stay if you are planning to hike to a Psiloritis (Mount Ida), since a starting point (Mygero Refuge) it is only ~20 km away (45 min driving) or to visit Sfendoni Cave (~7 km., 15 min driving).
Situated at the foothills of Mount Psiloritis in Axos, surrounded by beautiful olive groves and vineyards, these traditional houses provide an ideal retreat for environmentally friendly travellers. The place is surrounded by a wide variety of plants. So many fruit trees, grape vines, herbs, flowers. I loved the village concept. I loved the al Fresco dining. The food was tremendous, the staff always kind, courteous, and hardworking.
We found no way of getting up to the plateau, Zeus cave etc ( we had travelled up on a Public Bus) It may be because this time of year is considered the start of Winter or we may have been looking in the wrong place. We did not experience the friendliness the locals are renowned for, as I understand it this takes time.
Our two favourite things were dining at Arodamus where the hosts couldn’t have been more welcoming and generous, and Michalos in Perachori Square where the two sisters were charming, welcoming and the food was simple yet very good.
Anogia is a traditional Cretan village , with many local restaurants and good food . Cretans are very welcoming ! It usually snows at this village in winter , it’s a winter holiday destination for locals all Over the island . Good local meet cooked on charcoal served with home Made wine and raki
Anogia is located high in the mountains of Crete and is a large village built on quite a steep hillside. If you walk from the top to the tavernas at the bottom, it will require a slow walk back up, especially in the summer sun. Anogia gave a view of more traditional Cretan life and the taverna we ate at had good food at a very reasonable price.
We went to hear great music at the Yakinthia Festival in a beautiful open-air amphitheatre up on Mt. Psiloritis and were not disappointed. The village is one of the last villages in Crete where you can see noble old-timers in their high black boots, shirts, and mantilis.
Very beautiful small town in the mountans. There a few nice tavernas, little shops - everything you need for your quiet peaceful holidays. If you need night life and noise - do not go here! It is a special place to relax and enjoy silent and local, real Cretes' mountan village life. Also there is only one hour driving until Ideon Andron Cave and Nida plateu - really worth to visit.

The owner is very helpful and friendly. Lovely view from the balcony and hotel is in a good location. As the room had a kitchenette, we made our own breakfast.

Wonderful location just outside Anogia in the Psiloritis Mountains. Good breakfast, although too much for us. Very helpful staff.
