We have recently returned from 2 weeks at the Macaris Suites & Spa. We had a fabulous holiday and our executive suite with 2 bedrooms was even better than expected. There were lots of nice little touches, like insect screens on the sliding doors and electric shutters to keep the room dark. The kitchen was very well equipped for this type of apartment, with a proper job, oven, dishwasher and fridge freezer. The sofa bed was comfortable for our 15-year-old son and we had a great bathroom with a huge spa shower cubicle and a second separate toilet and sink. It was thoroughly cleaned every day to a good standard. The terrace was huge and had some shaded areas and some sunny areas and the full sea view was stunning. The pool area is quite small and did sometimes get busy, but mostly we were able to get sun beds even although we were a party of 5. The location is slightly odd as it is in more of a residential/commercial area (which we knew), but we actually liked this. Rethymno is a bustling city as well as a tourist resort and we enjoyed seeing that side of the city and shopping with the locals. The old town is about 15 minutes walk, but it’s pretty flat and we felt very safe walking back late at night. The town beach is a bit further (another 5-10 minutes) but you could get a bus or taxi. Shop around for sun beds, the cheapest we found was 3.5 euro for a bed and they don’t seem to charge for umbrellas. There are 2 decent supermarkets within 500m of Macaris in the direction of the town and prices are reasonably similar to the UK. The closest one is smaller but it seemed to be open at all hours of the day and night. Turning left out of Macaris, away from town, there is an area about 10 minutes walk away with boutique hotels and some fantastic restaurants which seem to be used more by the locals. We visited Prima Plora twice, it has a very upmarket feel and is right on the seafront. The food was excellent (especially the sushi) and it felt very reasonably priced for the quality of the food. The staff at Macaris deserve a special mention. Manolis on reception was really kind and very helpful and the staff at breakfast and the pool bar were very friendly and gave us recommendations for some good places to eat and visit.

We stayed at the hotel for twelve days and enjoyed it very much. The staff at the reception, in the restaurant and pool bar was dedicated, friendly and easy to talk with. The apartment was spacious with a beautiful view and the cleaning was superb. We had breakfast included and appreciated the high-quality buffet and a variety of hot and cold drinks to choose from. We highly recommend Macaris Suites and Spa.

We stayed in a superior 2 bedroom. It was a beautiful apartment - modern clean, with a huge balcony and a sea view. The cleaners did an excellent job and cleaned every day. The breakfast was very good. Maybe too much cream for someone trying to watch their weight - fried mushrooms in cream, and I could be wrong but the porrige tasted suspiciously creamy 🙂. The pool area is lovely. The pool is a bit small if you're a serious swimmer but the sea across the road is great for swimming. Without a doubt the best restaurants in rethymno are also across the road. It took us a few days to even notice them as they are not visible from the road and don't all have a web presence but the setting is stunning - overlooking the sea and the menus are very high end. If you are interested in a spa treatment you need to book well in advance The staff are very friendly and helpful. We loved our stay at macaris suites and would definitely recommend.

My wife and I stayed at the Macaris Suites and Spa for two weeks in May. We booked a one bed executive suite. This was spacious and tasteful with the benefit of a large balcony overlooking the sea. The Hotel staff provided impeccable friendly service and served excellent food. The entire complex has the quality and ambiance of a five star hotel. We rarely write reviews but Macaris is exceptional. We would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Crete. It is also conveniently situated being a short pleasant walk from the old town and the harbour. Graham and Andrea Davies Shrewsbury UK

This is a lovely hotel. We had a two bed suite with balconies. Very clean and up to date. Staff were ladies and gentlemen. Lovely gentle people. We went before Easter, wasnt very many there. Kids had great freedom going up to the bar to play pool. There is also a spa there, with therapist who can do massage etc. Nice area with jacuzzi. The hotel is just off the main road so doesnt have any grounds to speak of, except pool area. Bus stop outside brings you to Old Town in a couple of minutes. You can walk too, probably 15/20 minutes, but its a busy road, nearly easier to get bus/taxi. We had a lovely trip to Macaris Suites, people very nice, food lovely. Sun shone. A lovely break. Well recommended.

Stayed here for 15 days. Nice pool that was not too busy. Great suit with balcony and super views. Presumably due to covid was rather short staff but they made up for it by their willingness to help. Good position or 4/5 good restaurants within walking distance but nothing else in the area. A taxi drive to the old town that is the place to be. Rather pricy but overall a pleasant stay mostly due to the excellent staff.

My partner and I stayed in Macaris Suite and Spa for 10 nights and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Rethmynon. The hotel is located in more of a commercial area but is an easy walk to the old town. A taxi is 5euro to the old port either and they come within minutes. The hotel rooms are extremely spacious and finished to a high standard. The balcony was what made the room, it was probably the largest balcony we've ever had in a hotel and looked out at the sea. You could spend an entire day relaxing on the balcony! The rooms were cleaned daily and were kept spotless. The pool is perfect and was never hard to get a sun bed. All of the staff were so friendly and efficient. Highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back.

We lived in a executive 1 room apartment on the 7 floor. Beautiful wiew to the sea, great bed, nice bed, and most of all: the most nice staff everywhere . Outstanding service . I forgot a dress and they just send it to me without charging me:) If you have rented a car you can park for free just outside the hotel. I recommend this hotel if you want a super place to stay in Rethymnon

Fabulous hotel ,restaurant was not open due to covid but the fridge in our rooms were stocked up with food and bottles of water we actually didn't want for anything if you needed some replacement just had to ask at reception and it was done . Rooms were stocked with clean towels and bedding for you to change when needed . Pool area lovely clean . It is about a 15,minute walk from the harbour but taxis were available for 5,euros. We hired a car which I think if you want to get about is the better option. Highly recommend
