Although the rooms in Minos Mare are basic they are nevertheless comfortable.

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
