First time we've stayed here or in Crete. Had an amazing week staying all exclusive. The food buffet was varied and there was something for everyone, food all well cooked and presented. The rooms were average but the facilities around the hotel meant we spent little time in them, choosing to lounge by the pool or in one of the... More

Just returned from an enjoyable 10 nights at the rethymno mare (not to be confused with the royal next door). On the plus's side is the clean comfortable rooms, the clean good sized pool, and the friendliness of the staff . The private beach is 5 mins away where the hotel provides some refreshments. The beach Is NOT dirty as... More

My whole family and I were very enthusiastic to get here. But unfortunately we became as much disappointed when we arrived. Like most of people here, we were attracted by beautiful pictures and good comments in websites. First of all, the room wasn't ready at the check in time. We waited in the lobby (hot at this time) for an... More

Great stay at this lovely hotel. Our room was lovely. The choice of food each meal time was good and the snacks available in between meal times were also of a good standard. Drink choice was fairly limited but cocktails in the main bar were lovely. The hotel is quite out of the way which we liked, however the bus... More

Friendly, helpful staff. Enough seats at the swimming pool Always enough seating in the restaurant The food was all right, but not great. More than enough choice, but typical "tourist meals", which is a shame because Greece has so much more to offer when it comes to great food in their traditional and local restaurants. So the food was ok,... More
