Hotel looks great and the amenities, pool etc were great however the pool bar staff were painfully slow and the range was limited. If you want a place where you can get a wide range of snacks by the pool all day, this isn't the place. Staff in general were good, but the rooms are depressing, desperately in need of... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at Minos Mare for a week in the beginning of July 2014. We had an all inclusive package and a room with a terrasse. The hotel, staff, restaurant and beach was very nice. The hotel is right on the beach and has a good amount of sunbeds both around the pool and at the beach.... More

Although the rooms in Minos Mare are basic they are nevertheless comfortable. Despite other reviews, I found the food excellent and the variation of food was splendid, catering for the different tastes. The pools are nice and it's straight on the sandy stretch of Rethymno. Most evenings there is some form of entertainment. The short 2 minute walk to the... More

Location was not very close to the main strip of restaurants and shops, about 5min walk. Surroundings of the hotels were not too pretty, beach was sandy, but sea... More

The rooms are pretty dated. The beds pretty bad (springy and old) We got the all inclusive deal. Food was mostly overcooked and pretty basic. The air con is timed - starts at 2pm and ends at 4am and isnt very strong. The key is linked to the electrics so when you leave the room the air con goes off.... More
