I had been out for my run each morning while in Rethymno, and saw the endless rows of beach umbrellas and chairs. So, by our last full day, it was our last shot at chillin on the beach like the locals seemed to be doing. We must've been right, because everyone around us spoke Greek. The guy who helped us...

In Rethymnon you can have a hotel in the pretty old town and harbour or by the wonderful sandy beach. you cannot have both as the beach is some distance from the harbour. Choosing the beach, Hotel Poseidon fits the bill perfectly and is excellent value. Having made that choice it is unreasonable to complain about the walk to the... More

I stayed here in April 2014 with a group. Our rooms were clean and more than adequate; the wifi was good, and above all the staff were friendly and helpful. It's about half an hour's stroll from the old town, and there is a dedicated beach area right opposite where sunbeds can be rented for 2 Euros. Every room has... More

The air-con didn't work 2. I don't mind chatty owners but it became increasingly annoying when he started intruding on our personal conversations to add his two... More

The hotel was very good value for money €35 per room per night including continental breakfast of fresh orange juice, coffee, boiled egg, 2 different types of rolls, ham, cheese, jam etc. A small supermarket next door...

We stayed here only one night (because of ferry reshuffling), after staying in Chania for 2 nights and really wished we'd stayed at Hotel Poseidon the whole time and taken a bus into Chania. Villa Venezia in Chania was 23 euros more per night than Posiedon and not nearly as nice. The hotel was a great deal and directly across... More
