We stayed at Rethymno Mare resort in the first week of June. Everything was wonderful, the staff is so friendly and the hotel was clean and the gardens were beautiful. We really didn´t want to upgrade because the pool which we were allowed to go was more beautiful than the "golden bracelett" pool. The food was excellent, we really enjoyed... More

We stayed in the resort for a week in May of 2015, and despite having a good time (see the end of this review for an impression), there are several issues with the hotel which do not correspond with its rating. The sports facilities are a laugh, there was litter on parts of the premises, our bathroom was tiny and... More

Our stay at the hotel was very pleasant, especially because all the warm attitude of the hotel staff from the moment we arrived until we left. We enjoyed the delicious and vriety of food, evenings drinks at the bar and personal reception. My next visit to Crete will most likely be back to this hotel.

We were the very first guests to arrive at Hotel Rethymnon this season and it remained fairly for the whole of the 10 days. We were upgraded to a room in the Royal part of the hotel, which I thought was odd because that hadn't been available when I tried to book - but anyway the room was large and... More

Our visit was right at the start of the season, and there had been very high winds before (and as) we arrived. We arrived just after midnight and the first thing we were offered was a plate of cold cuts - this is something that many hotels don't consider. Our room was ready, and our luggage was taken to the... More

Long story short: We traveled as a couple and we both really enjoyed our stay, especially the food. Most of the things we disliked were not hotel's fault, but I'll mention them as well, to make a full picture. Overall, I'd recommend the Rethymno Mare Hotel and especially the Royal facilities package upgrade. And also, I simply must mention Nikos... More
