A GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN RETHYMNON

WE HAD A VERY ENJOYABLE TWO WEEKS AT THE MINOS.THE ROOMS WERE COMFORTABLE,QUIET AND WELL EQUIPED.THE HOTEL PUBLIC AREA'S AND POOLS WERE CLEAN AND WELCOMING.FRIENDLY AND HELPFULL STAFF.BREAKFAST WAS GOOD AND VARIED,FOOD AND DRINK IN THE BAR/RESTAURANT WAS EXCELLENT.THE HOTEL IS A FIVE MINUTE WALK FROM THE BEACH AND ABOUT TWENTY MINUTES FROM THE OLD TOWN(WITH A GOOD BUS SERVICE RIGHT OUTSIDE IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE WALKING). IF I HAD TO SAY SOMETHING NEGATIVE,IT WOULD BE THAT BECAUSE OF THE MAIN ROAD OUTSIDE THERE'S QUITE A BIT OF TRAFFIC NOISE BUT THATS ABOUT IT. WE PLAN ON RETURNING TO CRETE AGAIN SOON AND WOULD CERTAINLY STAY AT THE MINOS AGAIN.

The best thing about my stay was...

EXCELLENT HOTEL STAFF.

Great value, super hotel

Stayed in Minos June 23rd. to 28th. 2008 and was extremely happy with everything, Fabulous superior bedroom that was more like a suite with seperate sitting area and balcony with table chairs and sun loungers, room 752 if anyone is thinking of booking. Food very good with a great choice every day, 2 pools and plenty of sun loungers arround a small grassed area, but only 3 mins from a beautiful sandy beach. Only slight snag no lift to these rooms that are up 2 flioghts of stairs, however it is worth the trouble when you arrive. The long trousers and no sandals is a thing of the past.

2/10 Okay

VERY DISAPPOINTED

It is not a renovated building as they said (maybe a part of it is renovated). The room was in bad condition (also the bath). They have operating hours for a/c!!!!! (15:30-18:30 and 22:30-05:30 while the temperature in Crete was 40 degree C). In spite i paid for a half board accommodation they did not let me have the dinner because my trouser was until the knee (if it was 5 cm after the knee they will let me enter). And that happened without notice in the reception during the check in. For the first dinner the manager give me a free lunch from the "a la carte" restaurant but when i went to have the lunch the waiter did not let me order what i want, but he said us: "You will eat whatever i tell you"!!!!!!. Also they could not make the room the next day before 14:00!!!! What is more, the waiters were wrangled during the breakfast time. The waiters were not polite with guests (a waiter talked impolited to woman because she take a piece of cake with her after the breakfast...)Generally we are very disappointed. We have been in many hotels in Crete the last 8 years but this was the worst we have ever been.
