              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Expected good quality and that was what we got,extras like bath robes slippers water and chocolates on arrival also raki and mini baklavas on our last day, bathroom scales to check on the indulgence of fabulous greek food and drink. Breakfast buffet excellant choice all you could want.spotlessly clean room with bath/shower and seperate shower towels changed every day also beach towels supplied.friendly staff. Good location near the beach with hotel sunbeds down quiet road but only around the corner for local bars tavernas and taxis into rethymnon.

                Indoor swimming pool water no warmer than outside pool so as it was only may too cold to swim unless very brave.

              • Couple
                8.2

                The desing of the room was very modern and the breakfast and dinner buffets were excellent. The swimming pool and the sunbeds inside the pool were realy rellaxing

                I would expect that the reception staff and waitresses to be at the same level of quality as the hotel standards...

              • Couple
                8.8

                its very good hotel with a big pool, nice people working there, a lot of choice of food for breakfast, everything was clean and plus to everything free internet in the room. Very quiet and relaxing place!

              • Couple
                9.2

                Cleanliness is really good, location and swimingpool are great.

                There was activities, communications and also a lot of TV channels only in Russian and Germany. Very few in English. They should keep it more international if they want to keep as 5 stars hotel.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Stayed here in may (see previous review) excellant room with added touches of luxury, drink on arrival also bottle of wine in room, baklavas and raki day before leaving, modern bathroom with seperate shower as well as over the bath, towels for pool as well as room etc.flat screen tv tea coffee etc.

                On arrival told we had been 'upgraded' to a suite, really disappointing as older dismal room bedroom area smaller with sofa(spare bed)? Opposite swing glass bathroom door, window in bathroom above bath so when I was standing in bath having a shower person from upstairs leanig over balcony looking straight in. Air conditioning not working properly during the night , one heavy key to open the door (2 key cards for the newer room) even the bathroom scales were old. Only plus side was it was nearer the sea with a partial sea view. Asked to be moved to the type of room we had booked which we were able to do the next day with the helpful lady on reception giving us a choice of rooms.as we had stayed here before we knew what to expect so could change to a much more luxurious and modern room but for anyone booking this accomodation, which the staff insist is more expensive and better they could well be disappointed

              • Single
                9.2

                The rooms are very modern and spacious, the hotel is very new and well taken care off, according to Greek standards very very nice. Facilities are very good. Free sunbeds and pool area seems to be only used by guests of the minos mare royal, peace and quiet at the pool if wanted or more people at the beach. Personnel was very friendly. First night of my reservation I was given a room in the older part of the hotel, but I received very good compensation for that. Would book the same hotel immediately again, this is truly 5 stars. I booked another 5 star hotel in the same area last time, but the standard of this hotel is much better, although surroundings of the other hotel were better.

                The rooms were rather noisy, talking in the hallway could be heard very much in the rooms. As a newly build hotel, the sound insulation should have been better. Wireless in the rooms would have been a big plus. Not possible to plug internet cable to an ipad, so had to use the area around the pool to be able to be online. Very friendly personnel but not always very good in their way of communicating.

              • Couple
                5.4

                The description/ photos of the room/ price doesn't match the reality ... all inclusive low quality resort . our side sea view room overlooking the parking... The"upgraded" room was even worse...really rude reception staff

              • Family with children
                9.2

                Special care from the staff. When I was sick they even made me a special suop to get better. This is small, private hotel where you can really relax.
