Very clean hotel with very friendly staff. When we visited for a week at Easter - the other hotel attached to the Royal was not open apart from the rooms, so the Royal was busy with lots of waiting at the pool bar and to be seated for dinner in the restaurant. Food was ok with lots of the same...

Lovely hotel, close to a narrow beach that wasn't quite ready for use. Food was lovely if not very hot though seemed to improve as more people arrived. Quite a way out of the main town so you are a little stuck at hotel unless you are happy getting a bus just under 2 euros each way to Rethymno and...

We stayed a week in this hotel, which is the smaller part of two hotels intertwined along a busy road. They have also a beach which can be accessed by a tunnel underneath the main road (where you can take public bus to Rethymno, some 30 minutes at least). For this hotel there is a separate swimming pool and restaurant....

I have made a list of observations from our week’s stay at Rethymno Mare in August 2016. They’re not complaints - we had, in the main, a very good stay here. • The hotel is a 100 euro taxi ride from the airport. I tell you this so you are prepared for the cost of your holiday to be increased...

Just returned from 10 day stay at the Mare Royal. The staff work very hard and they are the reason I have felt compelled to write a review. The hotel itself could do with an upgrade. We had a superior sea view room - whilst we had a sea view I would not describe the room as superior as the...
