The hotel is equipped with all you need to rest and enjoy your best holidays. There are areas for children and the pools are great. The breakfast is good but not awesome. However meets the basics. Is very well located close to the highway to Chania and Iraklio. Sit back, relax and enjoy 😎⛱⛱⛱🏊🏻🏊🏻☀️☀️

We recently got married at the Minos Mare Royal and can't speak highly enough of the hotel. The staff (particularly Kostas and his team who manned the bar until 4am) did everything they could to make sure that we were taken care of. They were friendly, attentive and very efficient. The hotel itself was maintained to a very high standard... More

Nice hotel with great facilities. The swimming pool and the beach are very clean and well maintained. The private beach is absolutely perfect, very quiet with free sun-beds for the hotel's guest. We booked the junior suite for 3 people with beach view, that was poorly maintained and looks very old compare to the rest of the hotel, although it... More

Friendly staff. 4. Marvelous bar with glass floor over the swimming pool. 5. Good food and above all the caring and efficient owners. We would definitely... More

I think there are many things to recommend this hotel - nice clean modern rooms,very helpful staff and a choice between a quiet adult pool (in the Mare Royal) and a boisterous family friendly pool in the adjoining Minos mare hotel. There is a good choice of breakfast and you can always get a sun lounger either by the pool... More

I stayed a week at this hotel, and it was the worst experience of my life. Overbooked. We were sent to a disgusting room in another of their hotels (Check pics). They even denied giving a letter recognizing the fact. They did this with at least half the guests i talked with during my stay there. You can image the... More
