    The room we stayed in was nothing like the photos on booking.com. The breakfast was very basic. Our bathroom was small and old. The beds were uncomfortable.

    The location was good between the beach and a good selection of restaurants and shops.

    The older rooms could do with a revamp as we had booked two room types. Wasn’t a major let down but if given the choice again I would book the new suites. I hated the fact guests would place their towels on chairs first thing in the morning and then would not use those chairs until after lunch. These guests were very selfish and was ridiculous that they felt it necessary to do so. This was a common practice.

    Fantastic hosts and the new suites were amazing. The location was next to the beach and near the main strip where there were plenty of restaurants to choose from for dinner. The decor and the bathroom in the newer section was exceptional. The pool was phenomenal and a few metres down the beach was spectacular. The sunset in the evening was breathtaking and both the beach and pool were easily accessible. Spectacular.

    Thre wonderful appartment was just missing some basic essentials for the kitchen, no washing up liquid or a cloth etc - which if you are only there for a few days would be useful rather than needing to buy this/or leave dirty dishes for the cleaners. A small thing but makes a difference and kind of sets a tone/expectation around looking after the place.

    Staff were amazingly helpful - nothing too much and very grateful for their exceptional service. Beautiful location on the beach, just loved our time there for a family get together.

    Very nice location close to the beach, professional and helpful staff, clean, spacious. We stayed in the newer part of the hotel, which was in very good condition. If you are looking for animation team and evening entertainment, this is not the hotel for you, but if you prefer peace and quiet, we definitely recommend this hotel. The town of Platanes has plenty of restaurants and other small shops and if you want to do more shopping the bus ride to Rethymnon is only about 15 minutes.

    -For an appartment the kitchen unit is very very poor equiped and it is difficult to cook something. -The bathroom was big enough, but the shower had a leak and after the shower half of the bathroom was under water. -On some days no room cleaning. -The breakfast is very poor. every day the same , little choise and low quality food. The coffee is very bad. Even 30 minutes before the breakfast end the food is not refilled. The worse breakfast we had ever on holidays. - Cold water in the swimminig pool. The sun beds are for free at the pool, but they are pretty old. -On the beach two sun beds and one umbrella costs 5€ per day. -There are two floors in the building and unfortunatelly no elevator. -The reception is full of mosquitos even during the day.

    We stayed for 2 weeks in Marinos Appartments. The suite had two modern rooms, a small kitchen unit and a nice balcony. The bed was really comfortable and there are enough pillows or blankets available. WIFI is available in the whole area and is included in the price. The connection is good. The parking is also for free. The location is good, restaurants, super markets are only some minutes away. Rethimnon is not far away. The personal is friendly. We would recommend Marinos those people who does not need breakfast and only for sleeping facilities in the suit, as the location offer a great starting point to discover the island.

    The bed was two single beds put together and these moved away from each other during the night. The cost for WiFi in your room at €6 a day was a bit excessive and felt that the key for the safe box in the room should have been included and not an added extra. Breakfast wasn't great either but not inedible. More variety and hot food would be welcome.

    The pool area was great and the food at the hotel snack bar was one of the best food we had in Patanias. Food standards around the area weren't great. Room was modern fresh and clean as a whistle. Easy access to the beach and perfect if you're looking for a quiet relaxing holiday.
