A return visit without the kids. 5th floor nice panorama view and good enough for us two. Room was spacious with a good sized balcony. Room made up everyday. Breakfast buffet is really good with something for everyone. Staff are friendly and professional. Restaurant on the roof overlooking the sea has an improved menu and we tried most dishes and...

Friends of ours booked a house near Rethymnon and asked if we wanted to meet up with them. We had never been to Rethymnon so we had no idea where to stay. We did a lot of research and finally decided on the Macaris. We booked through Hotels.com (never will do that again since they do zippo for you if... More

We just spent 7 nights here and it was fantastic. We were on the 7th floor in an executive suite. It was very spacious and clean. Terrace was huge with amazing views. The restaurant is also very good and reasonably priced. The pool area is great and we never had any trouble getting a sun bed. The staff are very... More

Breakfast spread was great, complete wirh proper coffee and the boys Manolis and Kostas will look after you in the bar. They do a great frappe... More

We have been traveling for 2 months and didn't want a huge resort with 1000 people , we also wanted a place with kitchen to make our own food as Greek food can be very monotonous. It's in the heart of Rethymnon but in an up market area.This place is perfect location, 20 mins from Bali and 1 hr from... More

We loved our stay at Macaris Suites and Spa! Everything about it is excellent and the breakfast buffet is absolutely amazing, lots of delicious food to choose from. The pool is big and only has one depth which is great for people who aren't confident swimmers. The staff were fantastic, friendly and happy to help at anytime. Chania is about... More

We've spent 8 lovely days at this magnificent hotel, and just like the parachute we can't stop smiling :) It's clean. It's proper. It's quiet and decent. The staff goes way beyond anyone's expectations to make you feel comfortable and welcomed as a guest. Having travelled around the world for more than a decade already, I can honestly and without...

We stayed at the Macaris Suites & Spa for 5 nights in June 15, and found it a lovely hotel, would definitely return. We stayed in an executive 2 bedroom suite on the 6th Floor, including a Jacuzzi on the patio. The Jacuzzi is quite expensive to have filed, as you can only have for a minumum of 3 days... More

Just returned from a wonderful week here. We had a jacuzzi suite on the 7th floor, it was amazing!! the suite was very spacious, clean and inviting. The outside balcony space made the holiday for us as it was HUGE, with dining table and chairs, sun lounger, settee, chairs and another two comfy chairs with a table. Not to mention... More

I want to thank again Christine Theodoraki, the Manager, for her help and kindness. She went above and beyond during a personal illness that foiled our first attempt to come to Macaris a year ago. We finally made it to this lovely island and wonderful hotel and we had a perfect vacation. We stayed at Macaris May 29 - June... More
