Stayed at Rethymno mare for one week, overall had a great time. We were a little disappointed when we arrived, since the travel agency sold the hotel as a 5* property (which it is not! due to the mediocre rooms and outdated lobby) but after we got over that, we were able to enjoy our stay. Nice food at the buffet, however don’t expect hot food, I have read several complaints about the food being ‘lukewarm’ which I unfortunately have to confirm, on the other side, it’s a buffet, what do you expect, the taste of the food is good which is also important. There are enough bars in the hotel to get nice drinks, as well as a beachbar(also worth to visit!). Furthermore, there is a nice swimming pool with enough beds and parasols and you can enjoy the sun throughout the entire day. Very nice staff, very helpful and happy! Also a big thanks to the Animation team who made our stay pleasent with enough activities and entertainment!

We spent 7 lovely days in Rethymno Mare hotel.
I would like to recommend this hotel. Very nice area with gardens and banana trees :-), very good location close to the beach.
The view on the sea from lobby and the bar or even from restaurant is .
The food served in the restaurant was very good. We enjoyed each meal, there is also kids menu so everybody can find some good stuff. Worth mentioning Mr Nikos, person who welcomes you when entering the restaurant. Mr Nikos makes you feel like at your favourite restaurant you visit 20 years in a row.
Animation program presented by the team also gives the good value and spirit. Yasir and the team do good job around the pool/pitches. I appreciate the program for the youngest like party, karaoke or even music bingo.
Hotel is worth recommendation and I can only wish to be back next year. We already plan the holiday 2018 :-)
Ps: if you get a room from range 5XX you get free Fitness every day as you have to climb to the room (pic #2)

The main plus point of the hotel was the staff from the animations crew/bar staff & the restaurant they were so friendly & helpful ,as all inclusive s go I think this was on the lower scale ,however it was cheaper that the competitors & the accommodation was more 3 star I felt ...however as previously stated I've never stayed in such a welcoming & friendly hotel

Great hotel, great staff, great pool and close to the hotel beach. Close to a supermarket and a great car rental. Only small issue is the tap water in the restaurant, but you can bring your own bottled water.
