It was a very relaxed stay at this hotel. Of course also due, that the hotel not even half full. On some days we sat almost alone in the dining room. So, everything great so far.

    Reception: friendly, helpful Chef/in: friendly, but somehow forced friendly. Waiters: stressed, annoyed, understaffed. A waitress was arrogant and unfriendly, forgot the orders, we had to often wait a long time for beverages. Poor dealing with guests was at the agenda. The 2. waitress whizzed fast around and made most of the work. This is not okay. You pay a lot of money for half-board and is poorly treated. The clouds fast the holiday mood. Maid service: very good work, fast, inconspicuously. No parasailing room cleaning like in other hotels.

    Rather 3 stars, cafeteria level. On the island Kos (also Greece) we had also a 4 star hotel, the food was a lot better and 'greek', here - in comparison a snack bar. Little variety, but ok, one was full.

    Distance to the beach, hotel somewhat isolated, but good for us, as quiet. In the neighboring town many shops, delicious tavern, the something in the name '. Sky.' Has, can remember the name not exactly remember, but only to be recommended. Were 2 times there food, although half-board in the hotel. Bus ticket 1 Euro in the city Rethymnon, every half an hour. Or taxi 8 €.

Small, familial hotel, without being noisy or disturbing animation. No loud music. Rooms to the roadside very loud, to the garden side was pleasantly quiet. Doors are rather thin and badly sound-proofed (so you get it with, when the neighbor the door aufsperrt and comes into the room). Hotel is newly renovated, is clean, no complaints. Maria, at the front desk, super friendly, speaks 4-5 languages, always helpful (like the whole hotel staff). Wi-fi free and everywhere to receive. Pool rather small, but always enough space. Also at the beach there was always enough space, if you in the morning ... is, on sunday rather full. Many russians (disturbing by ungehobeltes and thuggery). Average age 50 and older.

    The hotel is about estimated six kilometres east of the next, famous (old-) city Rethymnon. In this section the former artery Heraklion after Rethymnon and further to Chania. This was only a few years by parallel running 'new road' relieves. Thus from the former, very busy street a clearly quieter connection, the adjoining small resorts runs. Nonetheless, it is still the locals widely used. The hotel is located on the northern side of this street. Which means, that you, to the sea, not a single road cross! To get to the ocean, if one leaves the palmengarten of the hotel on its northern corner and crossed on a small wooden bridge in the summer dry stream. Then follows you on estimated 200 meters a small asphalt way, left high reeds, right small enclosed fields or a small house-and is on the sandy beach. All in all approximately 230 meters, not strenuous. On (sand!) Beach itself against fee of circa 5 Euro/ day two beach chairs and an umbrella one could be rented. Directly a small beach restaurant with good cuisine with reasonable prices.

    Food was so far in the last few years good-and is now even become better there was a new chef set, the apparently independently develop allowed. The score is acceptable. The offer consists of three passages : breakfast, lunch and dinner, all in a large, friendly hall in the basement with windows. All passages in buffet form, rich, diversified and for every taste. Whether vegetarian or you carnivores, for pastafans, or for the supporters of 'i eat only bread with olive oil'. Every day there was fresh, deliciously prepared, and tempted always in addition, times to go. - several attempts and concrete arrangements, for example, tonight to eat somewhere else, failed. We had prior to the loszuckeln after the 'somewhere else' short the current buffet looked at, and then determined, but in the may beach hotel to eat.   Drinks after landessitte was, wine very delicate, water, limo, among other things, everything was there. Even non-alcoholic beer was offered as some guest once a hearty beer would, but because of various medicines just cannot.   At the bar there were in the evening only the really local spirits, with which one cocktails can make, but they are mostly after some time the Ouzo no longer can be hidden. But nonetheless the international offer of whiskey and cuban rum lived, that then but despite all inclusive you have to pay. - is to be hurt, but it costs a small point in the evaluation   Cleanliness kitchen, restaurant and bar good and nothing to complain!   Atmosphere : as i have already mentioned, there were failures, but not in the responsibility of the may beach hotel. If some tourists from the country of the vladimirovich (Wladimir) p. with the offer 'all inclusive' not can handle, instead my, they must do everything, what is, on their plates up, then angestochert are allowed, three times a day, seven times a week, then the offensive on guests at the highest quality. If the same guests from the same country does not know, why sometimes people polite to a small snake form, so 'in line', but instead to the forefront in this formation hineinbrechen, not left and look right, until the aufgeschaufel is finished, then annoying the the bystanders not and can also an otherwise good atmosphere disturb.   Apart from: there was no alcohol failures, no badeliegenbesetzen, it was up to the aforementioned guests very harmonious.

    The may beach hotel offers unchanged on best service. The few coworkers give their best, and you can tell! The handtüchersets are changed on a daily basis, the rooms were cleaned every day. The corridors also. We had a clean feeling!   All staff were also very friendly. My wife and i had the impression, as if it them at heart, that us feel comfortable. There was the personal eye contact, sometimes these small interhuman klönschnacks, whether with the manager nicos, the very ambitious Maria or the really very polite and sympathetic Sophia from the front desk. We found it remarkable, that Sophia in their capacity as' receptionist ' despite the large heat imposed had, always the hotel in a very refined way to represent. They carried during your work always a dark blue suit, so a kind of corporate identity poor. Sophia it was obviously concerned, the may beach adequate to represent. - that was great! Something is in other hotels in the immediate vicinity , however, not usual and neglected. There is already once the jacket checked out, the white blouse slips the waistband or wrinkled, because it was so hot. Although one also at the reception works! Not, that the now important, but these niceties do it sometimes. I take my hat off to this girl!   Also the other employees bestachen representing once again through your friendliness and their patience with some (always the same!) Guests inter alia at buffet, their plates there first, of course, pointless which are swamped, but only tried, but in the end nothing to eat. Almost full plates back, daily... The all-inclusive (all-inclusive) are...- Other guests it was horrid, how rude you such 'party conduct' found, but the staff of the hotel took the left and were friendly. The food in the next area.
