You’ll find great food and a friendly atmosphere at these apartments, a favourite with TripAdvisor reviewers.
Given how small this family-run place is – there are just 22 apartments – the pool is a really good size. Home-made food is served all day, and the hotel has views across open fields and olive groves.
The apartments are in a quiet spot just outside Tingaki. It’s a 10-minute walk to shops and tavernas, and when you fancy the beach, Tingaki’s sandy number is a 20-minute walk away.

Hello, lovely small apartments, clean and to a high standard. Quite a way from main resort .Beach clean and breezy , it is a shame being a little to far from the Mayflower, it is a good 20 min walk . If like us, we did the walk there and back twice a day after two weeks . You will be rewarded not only by swimming in lovely sea, but finding the lovely ALIKES GREEK TAVERNA best place in the whole of tingaki if you go there you will not be dissapointed .Getting back to the Mayflower the whole family and staff are looking after you CHRISTOS behind everything and DEBBIE whose food is heaven. The only downside is Thomson who pay these people a little enough that they have to charge more to make up for it.More

2nd visit .Yet again fantastic owners and staff .Always spotless and well maintained .Cannot fault the place .Everything that has been written before applies -has to be one of the best places in Tigaki . If i had one thing to say that might be an improvement would be to be able to pick up a UK news channel like Sky and BBC News -yes good internet but not in the rooms so would help to get a TV channel.Hope to see you next yearMore
A home from home, an absolute gem!
Even though we have stayed in many hotels across the world, I have never left a review for a hotel before, but I feel this is necessary after our wonderful stay here at the Mayflower apartments. From the minute we arrived and were greeted by Christos, to the moment we left and said goodbye to Elia and Debbie, we were treated like family every single minute. We were shown to our room by Christos after arriving at 11:30pm, and told to check in the next morning, where we were greeted by Elia. We stayed in room 108 with our 2 children, the 1 bed room apartment was comfortable for the 4 of us, slightly basic but extremely clean, and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable, with 2 balconies overlooking the pool. During the day, the food and drink served by Elia and Debbie was incredible, our children loved the fact they could order on anything on the menu and within 15 mins is was freshly cooked and served to them with a smile by Debbie. If we could, we would have put Debbie in our suitcase and brought her home, she works long hours but always had a smile on her face, her cooking was exceptional, we even asked her for a few of her recipes which she was more than happy to share with us. The choice and variety on the menu was brilliant, breakfast's available all day, salads, burgers, pittas, chicken, desserts, you name it, Debbie cooked it! We went horse riding at Salt Lake stables, this was a fantastic experience for the whole family, even though we were all beginners. We paid €100 for a 1 hour sunset ride along the beach, this included a taxi service there and back, all the horse riding equipment and clothing, and even beers and soft drinks before and after! A definite must! We also went go karting at a place called Marmaris go karts which was about a 30 minutes walk towards Marmaris, again this was great for the kids, we paid €30 each for 30 minutes on their track which we thought was very reasonable. The supermarket is approx 10 mins walk, some items were pricey, some were reasonable, cigarette prices here were good, we paid €34.50 for 200 L&M, 200 L&B were €40, Amstel lager was €4 for 4 cans, although the supermarket down the road in Tigaki was much more reasonably priced for food but was an additional 10 minute walk. The only problems we had during our 7 night stay was with the mosquitoes, even though we went prepared with plug-ins, bands, sprays, we still woke up each morning with additional bites. Obviously this isn't a fault of the hotel, but if you are tasty, the mozzies will have you! And also the guests staying in the room above us who thought it would be a good idea to walk around in high heels on tiled floors and seemingly re-arrange their entire room by dragging furniture about at 2am! Every member of the team is what makes this hotel what it is, from the cleaners who clean your room daily, to the pool guy who tidied around the pool each evening. We will definitely be returning!More
May at Mayflower
Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Mayflower Apartments. Tigaki. Everyone was so friendly. The hotel was peaceful, exceptionally clean and comfortable. We were made to feel at home as soon as we walked through the doors despite it being 04:00 by Christos. The apartment was spacious and clean with adequate facitilies for self catering. Had a slight hick-up with the drainage but that was sorted immediately. Nice to have fly screens on balcony doors so we could have fresh air and no mozzies. We had a mountain view from our room which meant we didn't have the sun in the afternoon heating up the room - perfect for us. Air conditioning is available which you had to pay extra for. Although it is self catering we opted not to and took advantage of the delicious food cooked by Debbie for late breakfasts and snacks during the day all at reasonable prices. The Greek evening at the hotel is a must. Food and entertainment fantastic. Good sized pool with ample sun beds and plenty of seating. Free WiFi is available around public areas. Were able to open a tab for drinks and food which needed to pay daily with cash - no Credit Cards taken. 10 minute stroll to main road where there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops and 20 minutes to the beach.More
Hey Christos, I know you're reading this!
The Mayflower is hands down the best place I have ever stayed! Been there 3 times now. My partner hadn't stayed before this year and now its his favourite too. The apartments are basic, but spotless and comfortable. That's not the selling point of this wonderful hotel. It's the welcome, the service and the atmosphere. The family who run it couldn't be any nicer or kinder. The other guests are always charming and I've always left with new friends. Almost everyone you meet there is a return guest which says it all. No average review could ever be right about the Mayflower! Thanks Christos, Elia, Debbie and the rest of the team for another delightful holiday. See you again one day! XxMore
