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
