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

We rented a car at the Heraklion airport to drive a little over an hour to Rethymno. Upon our arrival the manager explained to us that no breakfast would be served but that all the breakfast items would be in our apartment for self service. Also the room cleaning schedule was reduced and we were not allowed to be in the apartment -not even on the balcony- whilst the cleaning took place. We were so pleasantly surprised with our "Executive Suite" (1 bedroom). It was bright and spacious, perfectly laid out with a gorgeous balcony. The view was just stunning, we couldn't get enough of those sunsets. The pool looked nice too but we didn't use it. Sun chairs were always available. Obviously the hotel was half full at the best. Although it is close to a main road any noise from it was drowned out by the sound of the waves. We are not beach people but we watched some go into the water right across from the street. To go to a real beach you would need a car. On the other side it was just a short walk to the charming city center with plenty of shops and restaurants. We didn't like that we had to make our own breakfast as my husband likes his fried eggs, bacon and so on. We always cleaned up the cooking mess ourselves because we were not sure if the cleaning ladies would take care of it. There was a dishwasher but not enough dishes to fill it and it seemed to be a waste to run it just about empty. It was nice though to have the option to prepare a lunch or a dinner once in a while for ourselves. The staff was very friendly and catered for us very well. We would have loved to stay longer than the 2 weeks we had booked. This is a place where one could spend months on end!

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and had a great time - the hotel enjoys a great location with fantastic views and a pleasant 15 minute stroll to the Old Town in Rethymno. The staff were helpful and friendly and the spa was excellent and very reasonably priced. A lovely pool and a great breakfast made this a hotel we will try to visit again.
