My wife and I stayed there from August 3rd to the 14th. Everything about the hotel was brilliant, the beach was across the road and the old town is less than 10 minutes walk The accommodation was great the food brilliant but the best part were the staff. Every one of them were friendly and efficient, reception, dining room staff... More

We have just returned after two weeks at Aquila Porto and what a great two weeks it has been. My husband and I travelled with our two daughters 21 and 16 and it suited us all. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming with a special mention going to "Georgio" at the lobby bar for his attitude towards his... More

My wife and I have just returned from 2 weeks half board at the Porto via Thomson Platinum. We are in the 40s - 50s age bracket and were travelling as a couple. We chose this for the apparent quality. The location The Porto was near enough the town centre as to keep us in walking distance (10-15 minutes comfortably)... More

Have just returned from two weeks at this hotel. Location excellent as only a ten minute stroll into the old town itself with its shops and restaurants plus places where you could book your own excursions rather than use Thomson as they do tend to be more expensive. The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and a special mention... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here with Thompson. Lovely quiet hotel with excellent staff. We opted for all inclusive and were happy to have done so. If you stay all inclusive and go out for the day, you can ask for packed lunch. Pools are small and there is a little bit of a race in the morning to get a... More

This is a review for both the Aquila Porto Rethymno and their sister hotel the Aquila Rithymna Beach. You'll see why as you read the review... We booked a room at the Aquila Porto for 5 days in mid-July. We chose the hotel because of it's location and close proximity to the downtown/port area which is where most of the... More

We spend a fantastic week in this amazing hotel. It's located near to beautiful Rethymno town centre, with private beach (with bar and free wi-fi!) just few steps away. Our room was very clean, spacious and with nice balcony. The food was yummy, we chose HB option and there was a great selection of buffet dishes for breakfast. Dinner, also... More
