In marketing circles they say that "people buy people", and maybe that's one of the reasons why over the last 20 years we must have stayed at the El Greco at least 10 times; the staff are always so genuinely friendly and helpful - nothing has ever been too much trouble, and it's not that fake "we are here to...

We stayed at the El Greco in Rethymno to attend a wedding in Crete. We decided to splurge and book a Double Bungalow Sea View Room that included either brekfast, lunch or dinner. It was pricy, but worth it as it was our first vacation away without our son! Upon arrival, we were greeted at the open-air Reception area with... More

This is a beautiful hotel but not a 5 star. Firstly I would like to say the staff & animation team were great friendly & helpful. Unfortunately whilst we were guests the majority of other guests were Russian we were in such a small minority of British &German guests that It was quite uncomfortable. There were so many children who... More

This hotel was beautiful in a decent location. From someone who has been on many luxury holidays I rate very highly of the cleanliness, style, food and of course helpful, well spoken and friendly staff. All areas including the beach and pool areas are a high standard of cleanliness and organisation of sun loungers and shade. This holiday for me... More

I believe the rooms are being upgraded and that will make this hotel even better .We were all inclusive and had a good choice of drinks in the bars in the... More

I stayed at the Grecotel for a week in October. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the main areas of the hotel are really lovely, and have been beautifully furnished, but this highlights how dated the bedrooms are. As we were led from the main area of the hotel, the decor is old fashioned, dated and the carpets outside our bedrooms... More

My Fiance and I stayed at the El Greco 10th -17th October, and it surpassed all our expectations. Beautiful hotel, lovely warm friendly staff, fantastic location. Sunbeds were plentiful around the pool area and on the beach although we only found use for them on a couple of occasions, as we like to go sightseeing - couldnt imagine going to... More

Just returned from a week stay at the gorgeous hotel. Took a chance for October but turned out well (really hot about 25 or 26C for most days). First impressions as you arrive are WOW! The newly refurbished public areas are modern and sleek and the staff are so welcoming. When taken to the rooms we were a little disappointed... More

Three of us stayed at the El Greco from the 10th to 17th October. We stayed half board as we tend to explore various areas during the daytime. It was our first visit to Crete and to a Grecotel hotel and we have stayed at quite a number of very good hotels but rated the El Greco as the best... More
