We went to this hotel from 3rd-11th August 2014. On the plus side the hotel was extremely clean, the location was very central for tavernas and supermarket/local shops and an easy bus route to Rethymnon (tickets can be bought at reception).A welcome touch was that when we arrived at 1.30 a.m. there was a selection of snacks/tea and coffee ...very...

The location is superb, right on the beach front and in a prime position to access nearby shops, restaurants, water sports and also Rethymno. The hotel guests are predominantly German but... More

Stayed in this family run hotel last week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our coach arrived at 2.30 a.m. and following a quick checkin, we were invited to the dining room for tea, cheese, and small snack ; an unexpected welcome idea. I travelled alone, and was given a room on 3rd floor as requested, with a south facing balcony.... More
