A comfortable stay across from the beach and a 15 minute walk to the old town. Not sure I would class it as a 5 star hotel, it needs some updating/modernising and maintenance. It may have been when it was first built in the area, some areas looking worn and tired. Both pool areas are not the nicest to sit... More

The hotel was perfect, you couldn't wish for a better location. The staff at the hotel were absolutely fabulous and they were all so welcoming, so much so I actually miss them. I have nothing negative to say about this holiday or this hotel and I give them not just 5 star excellence but 10! We have already booked next... More

We stayed at the Aquila Porto Rethymno in july of this year and must say how much we enjoyed ourselves. The hotel itself is very nice and well kept albeit a little dated perhaps in certain areas this however does not detract from the fact that it is very well kept and clean.The staff at this hotel must get a...

Bottom line this is a superb hotel, with first class service and extremely attentive staff. However it is aimed at a certain market of mostly couples, there is not a lot on offer if you have young children or teenagers. The swimming pools are quite small and surrounded by only a handful of sunbeds, understandable for the one in the... More

First I have to say we were a bit concerned about our pending visit to Crete because of all the media outcry over euros... We needn't have worried! What a wonderful time we all had at that lovely hotel, in such a bustling friendly beach town The food was absolutely first class- and so was the service We especially commend... More

We enjoyed our second visit to this hotel. The food is second to none and the restaurant staff are absolutely wonderful. The restaurant manager Georgious and his captain Gregorz went out of their way to ensure we had the best service. Our waitress Dimitria worked so hard. She worked almost all day and night in the restaurant, going home at... More

Spent a week this summer 15 (w28) at this hotel with my wife and daughter (16yo). I was very surprised to enter the hotel, since the Pictures and description from the tour operator did describe the hotel as an ok hotel, but nothing special. Everything was very clean, spacious and the food excellent. Combine that with one of the most... More

Much noise, bad street noise isolation, low room standard - it was very outdated and tired, very slow or no wifi in the room. God location and satisfying service, but not a 5 star resortl! Will not be back at this hotel.

This hotel has it all, close (but not too close) to a town, wonderful beach and staff to be proud of. The Porto Rethymno sits quietly on a corner on a commercial street about a 10 minute walk from Rethymno town. Blink and you might miss it but nestled among the hustle and bustle is a little bit of heaven.... More
