Had a lovely stay at the hotel. The hotel was better than expected for the price paid, the pillows were better then normal Greek ones with soft & hard available. Beds not too hard either. Shower adequate & clean enough with plenty of hot water. We paid extra for a sea view, but would have done this had it been... More

My husband and I have just come back from the Golden Beach Hotel and loved it. The reception, which has a great view of the sea as you walk up the steps into it, the bar and pool area are lovely and spacious. The outdoor eating/relaxing area is really nice with lots of flowers and candles in the evening. A... More

Really nice hotel, never been to Crete so didn't know what to expect. Very clean, staff cheerful and more than helpful ( we asked for extra pillows and they were in the room by the time we got back from dinner), very welcoming. Room a reasonable size and well serviced, nice balcony. Great pool and nice sandy beach with lots... More

This was our 5th visit to Crete, booked from the brochure as it looked like a lovely hotel. It certainly didn't disappoint. The location is great and the hotel well maintained and full of flowers and paintings. The food was good with plenty of choice, we were half board. The room was adequate with plenty of storage space and cleanliness... More

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

My husband and I have just spent two weeks at the Golden Beach 5th to 19th May 2015. The hotel has so many nice features such as fresh flowers in reception at all times, beautiful lamps and pictures. The lounge furnishings are lovely and the bar has lots of coloured lamps hanging from the ceiling as well as fresh flowers... More
