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

We had our wedding at the minos mare royal in June and it was all we wished for. The hotel could not do enough to make everything run smoothly. The hotel itself is wonderful, food was great and pool very peaceful. Cant understand how some of the reviews are moaning about the minos mare hotel attached, we didnt see one... More

I have just returned from a week at Minos Mare Royal Hotel. I was a little nervous about the hotel as I couldn't find too much information or reviews on the hotel, and maybe this is because people don't often write positive reviews about the experiences. On arrival at the hotel we were welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine... More

Been there 28aug. - 04sept - me, my wife and our grandson of 6. Had a very good time! Accomodation, food and service very good. Rooms clean. Internet availability sometimes irritating - poor Wifi coverage and rather slow. All the facts desribed earlier by "274856Michael" are true - but for us not too bothering... As for price - depends when... More

This was a last minute getaway, so the options for picking the hotel were limited... And yes, I chose Greece, Crete, as it was close, and yes, I know that the level of hotels and service in Greece should not be rated in european terms. But the thing is, that 1) it theoretically has 5 stars 2) it has really... More

It has been wonderful to stay in such a great hotel. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and modern, the pools and beach are delightful and the employees were extremely nice. The buffet, both for breakfast and dinner, was remarkable, and the greek cuisine was great. We will be back!
