We stayed here off season, in November. Frangokastello was beginning to close down (only one restaurant open). Maria's was open and we were quite happy with the room. Very clean. Not luxurious, but functional. Very informal and relaxed place. Owner very friendly. Beach was literally on the doorstep. Even though it was November, Libyan Sea was warm enough for swimming....

This is the perfect hotel to have a wonderful time on the island. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, with terraces to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. The family running the place is lovely and extremely helpful. The marvellous beach is just steps away, as well as a few good local restaurants. Great spot to explore the lovely...

Great holidays @ Maria's Studios. Well equipped room with new bathroom and AC, direct access to the beach and safe for children. Our son was able to go to the beach by himself and with children he met and we were able to see him from our apartment. Great host, very friendly and helpful. Lots of children from different countries...

One of the better equipped studios we stayed in. Lots of kitchen utensils if you wanted to self-cater. Very clean with a lovely new bathroom. Location is ideal right next to a stunning beach (with decent snorkeling too). Wifi was ok but not strong enough for streaming. Would very happily stay here again.

Friendly service, clean studiolike rooms. Surprisingly new and modern bathrooms. The rooms had had their better days, but who cares when the beach is so close, the sea is so warm and view is breathtaking. The place is off the main spots and when your dreaming for a reset, go there and listen to the waves and the cicadas. Too...

We did not book in advance and were lucky to find the last available room (september 2015). The host is friendly and kind. The location is excellent by the beach. Nice yard with a beautiful fig tree. Comfy parking. we will return

The apartments are good size with refurbished bathrooms, but the rest of the accommodation is in need of an extra attention. All very clean and the location is perfect for those who like the sea and tranquility, reason for the 4 stars.

I have tried but failed to contact Maria's Studios. On Oct 9th from Chania I searched Expedia for Maria's Studios LOUTRO. I failed to notice that the property was not in Loutro, which I had asked for. I booked the above and paid in advance for 5 nights from Oct 10th. I checked emails but had no confirmation straight away...

An absolute hidden gem. We picked Frangokastello as a location first following a brief day visit a couple of years earlier, finding it to be such a beautiful peaceful haven. We picked Maria's Studios for price, location, & the Trip Advisor reviews & were not disappointed. From our patio area we had fabulous views of the mountains to the left,...
