We stayed here last year for our Honeymoon and had a truly fantastic time. We have stayed in many large hotel complexes in Europe and admittedly when we arrived here it was not as big as we thought. However what this place lacks in size it more than makes up for in friendliness and Atmosphere. We dined in both the... More

Visited the spa and had 3 back neck and shoulder massages. I cannot remember the guy's name unfortunately.. However as i have a bad back frequently he was a life saver! I was recommended to come here by a local and can highly recommend it.

My friend and I stayed at the hotel for the first week of October and would highly recommend it. The only gripe we had was that when we arrived our seaview room was not good, the view from the balcony was the top of the atrium and although we could see the sea it was quite far off, we complained...

I have just returned from a weeks family holiday at this hotel. The hotel is perfectly set on a beautiful beach with amazing views. We had rooms in the main building with sea views which are well worth booking, the rooms are large well furnished with very comfy large beds. Rooms are spotlessly clean and beds were changed 3 times... More

This hotel was in an ideal situation for the Rhethymnon old town and the beach. The hotel was very clean, the staff were forever helpful, the facilities were excellent, including the restaurant which had a great ambience along with a complete choice of international style food. Our room was large, well-fitted out, including the bathroom, with a huge bed and... More

The hotel is a 5 star and while much of it reflects this, there are a few aspects that don't. The bedroom we had (2nd floor, sea view) was big - we had a 6 foot bed and there was a lot of floor space left so we weren't tripping over bags. They provide lots of hangers and a chest... More

A very nice hotell, with an absolutely marvellous breakfast. A pity though that the beds were so hard. We asked for bedmattresses and got that, but it didn't help, because they were so thin. The personell were all very helpful, polite and serviceminded.

Very nice hotel with a absolutely fantastic breakfast. The personel were very friendly and helpful. A pity though that the beds were so hard. We asked for extra bedmatresses and got that, but they were very thin and didn't make any difference.
