Spent one week beginning October with my two young-adult daughters. The pool was exceptionally clean in a lovely with green bushes, grass and palm trees all around, very relaxing. Lots of lounge chairs and parasols available (this was low-season). The beach (sand and pebbles) is a short walk along a path through bamboo and a quiet little road. The triple... More

Hotel is placed about 200m from the nearest beach (which is really not crowdy!! - it is the exact opposite of beaches near Rethymno) - just follow a footpath. Quiet hotel on a quiet place. There is really helpful and great staff which help you with anything. Free wi-fi, good clean swimming pool. Clean, big good equipped rooms! One of... More

This hotel is so good we just don't go anywhere else now in the summer. It is so peaceful and relaxing outside in the lovely gardens and the large pool is never busy. We eat out every evening - there is a variety of tavernas within easy walking distance, and return to the hotel for a drink outside beside the... 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

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...
