Hotel was a bit hard to find as we arrived late at night and they lock it up completely at night and there are no signs giving you information about what to do "after hours." We knocked to no avail, thought there might be another entrance, drove around the block, and were finally received at the front door on the... More

The amazing thing of this hotel is that has a distance from the sea about 50m. The comparison between price and service is excellent. Best Value for money in other words. Food is good and the distance from rethymnon city is 4km by bus.

Hotels and restaurants close to it provide a variety of activities but not as much as would be disturbing. Pool area is small but it wasn't crowded during our stay, the other guests probably hung out on the... More
