Nice hotel with great facilities. The swimming pool and the beach are very clean and well maintained. The private beach is absolutely perfect, very quiet with free sun-beds for the hotel's guest. We booked the junior suite for 3 people with beach view, that was poorly maintained and looks very old compare to the rest of the hotel, although it... More

Food amazing drink slightly more expensive than the town but still reasonable. Staff are fantastic and cant do enough just make sure you are booked into... More

Friendly staff. 4. Marvelous bar with glass floor over the swimming pool. 5. Good food and above all the caring and efficient owners. We would definitely... More

That was my best vacation. The hotel is not the best i've seen in my life (food can be much better), but the atmosphere in the hotel is definitely the best! Great stuff. Location is awesome, you can easily and safe get where ever you want to. Thanks all the workers of this hotel. I would definitely come back and... More

I think there are many things to recommend this hotel - nice clean modern rooms,very helpful staff and a choice between a quiet adult pool (in the Mare Royal) and a boisterous family friendly pool in the adjoining Minos mare hotel. There is a good choice of breakfast and you can always get a sun lounger either by the pool... More

I stayed a week at this hotel, and it was the worst experience of my life. Overbooked. We were sent to a disgusting room in another of their hotels (Check pics). They even denied giving a letter recognizing the fact. They did this with at least half the guests i talked with during my stay there. You can image the... More

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at the Minos mare royal. I don't think the pictures do the hotel justice..the pool is better in the flesh than in the pictures. The whole place is kept spotlessly clean. Every morning the pool area was cleaned, bins wiped. Our room was great and as others have said you get free treats... More
