The hotel has a large outdoor pool with plenty of space outside to sit and enjoy a drink, and is a short walk from the beach. The bus stop is 100m down the road with regular buses into Rethymno that run until midnight. The staff were very helpful too, even working around us when our ferry from Santorini was cancelled...

Service was top ! The rooms were nice, large enough, clean and with good airco. We had an all-in arrangement, which was really convenient. When out on a day trip, a lunch package was available. The restaurant itself is spacy and has inside and outside tables. Choice of dishes on the menu is excellent, with a nice variety between warm...

Three of us stayed at the May Hotel for 10 days at the end of July. Upon arrival after a delayed flight we were shown to our family room which was much smaller than expected. Very little space to do anything other than sleep which wasn't a huge negative but meant we didn't spend much time in the room. Our...

We stayed at the May Hotel with my father, and our 3 adult daughters.All the staff were exceptional in their friendliness, and could not do enough for us.
