Very good structural condition. Good sound insulation, so that you from the neighbors can hear almost nothing. Room is very clean and furnished to a high standard. Rooms are not huge, but sufficient large. Great is the closet, all swallows. We had the half board. Hotel was at the end of the season a jammas festival, with Raki-distillation and crickets in a mountain village. Was great. …  read hotel review

Holiday okay. As the food, especially the breakfast is very poor, it is, one likes in the morning already croquettes. The proximity to the neighbor hotel is incredibly (about 15 meters). The rooms are very hard to get used to the bathroom in the room, very unpleasant. As a praise: the friendliness of the staff. The beach was okay, but it was flooded several times a day because of the strong Wales. Conclusion: it was more like a three, five stars than five …  read hotel review

The hotel we were staying at were quiet nice, clean, service directed, inviting with fun activities, possibilities of choice. We were enjoying our trip with a fewer flaws that we picked up. We were amazed for what we were served and sometimes disappointed. There were rooms with no DOOR to toilet so we asked in advance to have one WITH door. That was kinda strange. The food buffay here was good but VERY Greek focused so it was boring and tasteless after a while. The hotel has a long span of culture interest and wishes to learn more. Mostly Germans ... were staying here which was very interesting. There were many options for us staying at the hotel to do and that takes great service in which was for filled. But more could we expect from a 5-star hotel which we really can't see to be so that's why 3. Read further down for more details for the reason. read hotel review

    The staff are very friendly but using TOO many different traces of hello. Tried to learn the first week but whatever you try to say back they always say something new you haven't heard so we stop trying. They have VERY good language knowledge which is fun! The rooms gets clean and sometimes bad. But it's very annoying to not know when they will clean. (they do every day). Either they come at 11 or 1, you won't know. No matter how close they are to your room they are not even close to so it. So that was very hard to go around for hours and still they haven't cleaned. The items change position when you are out and never are the same even if it's YOUR OWN items.

    The hotel provides with entertaining everyday at 9 pm. The discos there are for old people :/... Had higher expectations there. If you want to do something wild then go somewhere outside the hotel, don't know where. THE INTERNET IS INCLUDED!! Both lobby wifi and the Peal one. Ask for password, and I hugely recommend that since they are too busy mentioning everything. Many pools they are fray and nice. The main pools are the best! The beach is clean, very much rocks after a hard blowing day so the sand gets hard to walk on. They don't so anything about a mile after mile long rock beach after several winds.

    Nice distance to beach with only 25 m! Several pools everywhere to access easily. VERY hard to get us beds since every one seems to "keep" them with their towels for hours and hours with out being there. So maybe some sort of rules to this? All the pools had great silence and nice souk to it but one that we got have crickets next to it living in trees. These scream and scream non stop which makes it impossible to stay there and enjoy a swim or he sun. That was really frustrating. Silent proofed door to the balcony exist which is a thank from heaven. Impossible to enjoy silent indoors otherwise. When you are in the hotel area everything is sparkling white, clean and nice!!!!!! But as soon as you step out the surroundings you see how poor people live and how bad it looks around the hotel. It's as if you step out of a mansion and suddenly you are in he slum. Not a very nice experience. When going to the OLD TOWN / Center the shops there goes endlessly and endlessly boring... They are all the same repeating itself no matter where you go or for how long. It's boring after a while but they do have nice things but sell them expensive. Look for what they are made of, not all are BIO friendly even if they are saying so. There are many restaurants along the hotel with quantity quality. Here is a short reviews: do you like pizza? Go left when you step out of the hotel and find Mio Gusto, the pizzas are to die for. Do you want something else? Go further to Irini. But don't think pizzas are good at Irini or the hamburgers are good at Mil gusto. The rest of the restaurants serve little taste and not a nice experience. If you want hats, water or something accentual, just go right of the hotel and then right again and to find items that cost DOUBLE the amount in old town / central. Tour buss is fun, but the longest trip goes up the mountain and down. The short period of time is while the busses go down the city. And I'm talking about the red tourist bus. Wanna go somewhere? Take a taxi!!! It's only 5€ to old town /center ! Don't go to market, it's small, nothing of interest and used items.

    It's like an endless row of restaurants with quantity in sight, but as mentioned before, want pizza go to Mio gusto, do you wish for something else, go Irini. These are quality areas! In the hotels food area they constantly clean and take dishes!! The food served at the hotel (buffay) is large. But very very boring after a while since it focus ONLY on Greek food. = low taste, low spices so the food gets boring fast.

I go there almost every year. That says it all really. The service staff should be mentioned. Friendly, warm, helpful, professional...there was nothing more they could have done. Negative points: Late check-out again not possible. Bathroom is integrated into the room Shower over the bathtub (difficult for disabled guests) read hotel review

We had a very good room, a fantastic view of the sea and the resort. Some guests complained about the food, but we thought it was great, a couple more Greek dishes and it'd be perfect. The service in the restaurant by Varvara, Michaelis, Georgina and Zabia and at the bar in the evening by Manosus was friendly and courteous. We were happy with everything and would gladly come again. Mrs Uli was always there with advice and help if you had questions or special requests. What we didn't like were some particular British guests who lounged around on the ... loungers with dirty hiking clothes and walking shoes. It's a shame that the site only has a small garden, it would be great if you could walk through a small park, but that means it's only a few steps to the beach. You can't have everything. All of the hotel staff knew you after 2 days and were very friendly. read hotel review

A very nice hotel with direct access to the beach (a street with little traffic inbetween ), friendly and accommodating staff, good location in Rethymnon on the eastern edge of the city. Rethymnon itself is a lively student city with very beautiful bars and a large selection of pubs. read hotel review
