We selected this hotel for a 10 days vacation in Crete. The family-run 3* hotel is good located. It is just a short walk to the sea. We have been very warm welcome and we enjoyed being in touch with the hotel staff and management during the whole vacation. They are truly hospitable and they made many extra efforts for... More

We spent 9 days in Hotel Mantenia in early July 2013. All I can say that this hotel is unique from the normal hotels that Ive been mainly because you feel at home. Its a family own hotel and expect to be taken care of like you are a family. Its a quiet, clean and beautiful hotel. The owner/receptionist/cook is... More

We stayed 4 nights at Mantenia hotel near Rethymnon. Our agent told us that it was the best place to be in Creta, right in the middle of the island. The hostest was the kindest women we met in Greece. The hotel is 5 minutes walk to the beach. 10 minutes by car to Rethymnon. We will get back their... More

I rarely write reviews but this hotel deserves my very best. I recently spent one wonderful and very relaxing week in hotel Mantenia. The hotel is set within leafy well-kept grounds, only few minutes walk from the beach. The hotel is family run and they happily go out of their way to please and accommodate everyone. Their knowledge of the... More

I spent two wonderful weeks in this hotel. I chose a north facing room, with views of the sea which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel itself is small and quite private and offers a swimming pool and disabled access. The location is ideal because it offers easy access to Rethymnon town while also being a... More

This hotel is well maintained and as other reviewers pointed out, it has recently been renovated. It is a bed and breakfast style hotel, which is suited to travelers who like to go out and experience Crete on their own, such as adventurers, motorcyclists, backpackers and open minded travelers who are interested in local culture. We were greeted with much... More

Ideal for those who want to spend a few restful days in a quiet hotel within a very short walking distance from a beach (with a good fish taverna there) and a lively village of Platanias and a short drive from the picturesque town of Rethimnon. Unpretentious but comfortable, clean, charming and well run by a lovely family.

Hotel Mantenia is recently renovated. It has a beautiful lounge, clean rooms (each with a little balcony) and decent bathrooms. It's about five minutes by car (there is room to park your car by the way) from Rethymnon. The breakfast is simple: three types of cornflakes, bread, cheese, different kinds of marmelade, yoghurt, honey, fresh fruit, coffee. Nothing special but... More

Hotel Mantenia is beautiful, an architectural delight set amongst lush foliage and fronted by a perfect pool shielded from the road by an ancient property which enhances the impression of the perfect holiday retreat. Unfortunately that is where it ends. The main road is just too close and busy to allow for peaceful long lounges by the pool. The outside... More
