Although we actually stopped in a different hotel, when we stumbled across this hotel right by the beach we decided we wanted to spend our day times here when we saw the pool!!! We walked 15 minutes here each day because it was so good! The hotel grounds are beautiful and immaculately clean with great staff. The pool bar is... More

We picked this hotel for the quiet resort, within reach of somewhere busier, but not remote and the location, on the beach. The hotel is modern but still small and friendly. It's generally well maintained (TBH, only criticism would be hallway carpets need replacing due to a small area that has holes, I would prefer a tiled floor in the... More

Oh how wonderful is this hotel. Staff great especially Hazel in the beach bar - she is truly incredible everything you want and more. The girls working in the hotel were all really really good, one man though quite youngish, always smart, shirt and lilac tie was very arrogant and spoke to the girls rudely - shame could not get...

This hotel is very good especially for the family. Good for the children especially the two big pools, big sandy beach, beach volleyball, and kids game corner and babys pool. Friendly receptionist, restaurant staff, room cleaner; all well-managed! Very clean rooms, tidy everyday. Swimming pools and the beach are all clean up. SPA was good and very reasonable prices. Clean... More

Ideal place for couples without children. Clean, quite, good service. Close both to the sea and to the town centre, but not noisy. Very good food. We likes our festive Friday supper very much - served on the beach.

We recently took a holiday with a very young child to this hotel. All sites should be ashamed for marketing this hotel as 4*. Apart from the fact that its rooms are smaller than any 1* B&B the airconditioning in the rooms or the hotel never worked. That's in the middle of a massive heatwave. They gave us fans instead...

Just got back from a 10 night stay at the Minos mare hotel. The hotel is lovely, always clean, tidy and well looked after. The staff are very polite and helpful and will make sure you have everything you need, from something for your room to a question about hotel, bus etc. The pool area is always looked after and...

We arrived after a nearly 4 hour delay at 5.45am. The receptionist was friendly and processed us quickly, understanding how tired we were. We went straight to bed but realised we did not have the "pool view " we had booked. I went straight to reception next morning explaining the situation and the receptionist said she would sort it while... More

Best choise I could made in Crete. Fantastic location, very friendly staff, excellent food. Now about rooms, I think it is not 4 stars, but I only used it for sleeping so I don't mind. Towels for beach are includeed in price, with deposit. That made my stay simplier. Swimming pool very nice and clean. Hotel is very close to... More
