This hotel has so many wonderful features, such as friendly staff, beautiful beaches and ideal location in Rethymnon. However the facilities make it a 3 star. The rooms are small, and the shower is the tiniest I've ever seen, with a shower curtain railing that prevents you from using the shower head in place. The breakfast is lovely and starts... More

We booked a last minute holiday so we didn't know what to expect. It was both mine and my husbands first trip to Crete, and we were not disappointed! The hotel staff were lovely - very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, lots of choice, both for breakfast and for dinner. Unfortunately, due to our flights, we missed "Greek... More

Location was good but food was very bland and had few choices. Reception staff gave priority to German Guests. We had a mistake with our booking caused by Thompsons but the hotel were totally unhelpful. Thomson also very unhelpful when we complained.

We've just spent two weeks at this lovely Hotel. Couldn't fault the Staff, everyone did their utmost to please us. When we arrived at 10.30ist in the evening, there was a meal waiting for us in the dining room, which was most appreciated. We woke next morning opened the curtains and our heart fell. Our view was very disappointing, to... More

I came here with my family in August, and my first impression of the place was that it's an okay place for a weeks stay. Wasn't too keen on the breakfasts unless you like stale toast or German sausages nearly every morning. Wifi was terrible to get down stairs as I could only get it in a certain corner of... More
