Amazing stay at this very good hotel. so peaceful and relaxing, beautiful gardens and crystal clear pools. easy access to the beach where we experienced the most stunning sunsets. lots of shops within a short walk along with tavernas and restaurants. A big thank you to all of the management and staff for their very kind attention and warmth- we... More

This was our 2nd visit to this charming family run hotel. The welcome extended by the owner/staff at this hotel is second to none. Our first trip was through a tour operator but sadly this is no longer an option. This time we organised our own flights, transfers and communicated direct with the lovely Maria to get a lovely pool... More

Very good hotel with kind and friendly staff, cosy atmosphere and small beautiful garden. Located near brisk village Platanias and in a couple of kilometers to Rethymno town, where you can get easily by bus. An ideal place for quiet vacation (and entertainmants you can find by walking to nearby Platanias).

We spent our honeymoon in this lovely hotel and it was simply perfect. Lovely and peaceful place to stay (smaller and cozy, not like big impersonal resorts) with clean apartments, beautiful garden with crystal clear pool, delicious greek cuisine, and the most amazing staff we have ever met. These guys are just incredible. Beach and sea is not far away... More

We have just returned from our 4th visit to the May Hotel. Once again we had the most fantastic time there. It is the most relaxing, friendly and welcoming hotel and must have the best gardens and pool in Crete! We stayed bed and breakfast and ate out each evening - there is a wide choice of tavernas within 500m... More

Travelled here with my boyfriend 31/8/10 to the 10/9/10 and could not have asked for a better place to stay! It was stunning! There was always a bed around the pool and it was always lovely and peaceful. We stayed all inclusive and the food was brilliant, I cant eat dairy and Maria was brilliant and letting me know what...

We have just returned from our 5th visit to the marvellous May Hotel and want to thank Niko, Maria and all of the staff for making us feel part of the family once more! There are certainly bigger, flashier hotels with non stop activity if that’s what you want, but I guarantee you will search long and hard to find... More

An amazing hotel in an ideal location. I travelled as a single parent and the hotel catered for her superbly. The all inclusive option was paid for by my little girls apatite for ice-cream. The food was varied most evenings, pasta meat and local dishes, all very well cooked. There's a poolside bar with a grill for snacks if you... More

Spent ages reading reviews for hotels in Crete on this website and this was about the only one I could find without a horror story, and I thought I would continue with the good news. Booked last-minute with Thomas Cook in high season (August) so it wasn't particularly cheap but was one of the cheapest all-inclusives I saw for this... More
