Our room was amazing, private swimming pool by the ocean. We only got to try one of their amazing restaurants KOH...amazing asian cuisine, glass floors so... More

Beautiful situation. Lovely and helpful staff. Good beaches and lovely swimming pool.. Well situated for trips into Elounda and to Agios Niklaous using very reasonable cost taxis. Watersports centre offers scuba diving as well as the usual motorboat and sailing facilities. Excellent all round.

My husband, 7 year old daughter and I stayed at the hotel for the last week in July 2015, our fourth visit. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by hotel staff and given welcome drinks before being shown to our room. As we had previously stayed at the hotel on three occasions previously over the past three years... More

This resort is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. However, since I made my hotel choice based on TA and other online reviews which suggested the hotel is a 5-star accommodation, I will provide a detailed critique because we experienced many events that do not reflect that status. During our four (4) night stay we originally booked a sea-view... More

Not only was this establishment filled with cockroaches and vermin, but the manager Harry, did nothing to remedy the situation nor reassure us that we would be compensated for our stay. It was an altogether frustrating experience that was only intensified by the sweltering heat and spotty wifi signal, which ultimately made it difficult for us to navigate the city... More

The service was excellent. The manager of the hotel was able to procure my Sea Jets ferry tickets despite Sea Jets telling me I HAD TO pick them up in Heraklion because I didn't choose the delivery option initially. Sea Jets would not change my order to deliver them instead to Elounda Mare despite my phone calls and emails to... More

This was my 60th birthday treat from my partner- we had the King Minos suite - one more night left before we leave. It has been a quite stunning experience. The staff under the leadership of the General Manager Mr Maranghides are understated, calm, friendly and nothing has been too much trouble. We have loved the peace of our room,... More

Beautiful place, very nice hotel, I recommend to book one of the villas with private pool. It´s heaven. The rooms in the main building are not so amazing (if you consider the price) But villas are amazing. The place is expensive... but worth the price. Great food, very quiet hotel, no teenagers running around. No kids disco or animations.... Simply... More

The Elounda area is a fabulous area to stay in Crete. The bay, mountains and calm waters provide a tranquility atmosphere to the vacation. The Mare hotel which is nestled in a perfect location adds to the atmosphere with its well-kept gardening, private spots, and several accesses to water experiences – sea and pool. The hospitality is superb, food is... More
