The hotel is equipped with all you need to rest and enjoy your best holidays. There are areas for children and the pools are great. The breakfast is good but not awesome. However meets the basics. Is very well located close to the highway to Chania and Iraklio. Sit back, relax and enjoy 😎⛱⛱⛱🏊🏻🏊🏻☀️☀️

We recently got married at the Minos Mare Royal and can't speak highly enough of the hotel. The staff (particularly Kostas and his team who manned the bar until 4am) did everything they could to make sure that we were taken care of. They were friendly, attentive and very efficient. The hotel itself was maintained to a very high standard...

Nice hotel with great facilities. The swimming pool and the beach are very clean and well maintained. The private beach is absolutely perfect, very quiet with free sun-beds for the hotel's guest. We booked the junior suite for 3 people with beach view, that was poorly maintained and looks very old compare to the rest of the hotel, although it...

I think there are many things to recommend this hotel - nice clean modern rooms,very helpful staff and a choice between a quiet adult pool (in the Mare Royal) and a boisterous family friendly pool in the adjoining Minos mare hotel. There is a good choice of breakfast and you can always get a sun lounger either by the pool...

“the hotel without rooms with a view on the sea; just a swimming pool & surroundings, but it was ok”

“The sea view is very limited (you need to squint hard and angle round the palm tree) so decide whether it is worth the additional money.”
