I think the previous reviewer must have confused the Minos hotel (on busy main road in Rethymnon) with the Minos Mare (in Platanias, at end of minor road leading to the beach). We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this lovely hotel right on the beach.
The staff were friendly and helpful and very professional and the rooms were roomy and very clean. The animator, Lucas, was hardworking and wanted everyone to join-in the activities and enjoy themselves although understood if you just wanted to lie back and relax.
The only downside was the food which was repetitive and boring and the dining room lacked management although the waiters and waitresses worked extremely hard. Unfortunately, the owner and his family arrived a few days before the end of our holiday and staff were keen to serve his party (understandably) at the expense of service to other guests.
I would definitely recommend this hotel but would prefer B&B option rather than Half Board.
