The swimming pool is a reasonable size with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas available. Breakfasts are the usual Greek fare but orange squash not fresh orange juice available. We didn't have meals at the hotel as we prefer to try different restaurants and there's plenty of choice nearby. We recommend Mr Gyros which is just across the road. The beach... More

It was so good to arrive back at Grecotel Creta Palace after an absence of a few years. It was only once back we both realized what we had missed. From arrival to departure the staff were helpful, courteous and friendly as usual, and you know when you are home when you get a cuddle from the cleaner. It is... More

We spent one week starting 12 October with our four young children and had a thoroughly fantastic vacation. We spent our entire week in the hotel as the car rental we had reserved through Sixt didn't work out so we took taxis from the airport (cost is about 90 euros per taxi per trip and takes one hour). Regarding the... More

A very good location - roughly 4 km from the downtown (or the town boarder?), but in a calm peaceful place. A very good sandy beach, sophisticated restaurants and services as a whole... A very, very friendly stuff btw! Still, we were happy to live in a bungalow in a distant corner of the hotel area, far from any noises... More

I was last on Crete 17 years ago, and the once sleepy Rethymnon has changed in the meantime into something more redolent of the Costa del Sol. This probably made us appreciate arriving at the Creta Palace all the more. We were greeted with the unobtrusive professionalism we have come to associate with Grecotels and silently upgraded to a suite... More

This venue is extensively reviewed, still will add a personal perspective after a 3-weeks stay in September 2013. All in all, the hotel seems to be very professionally managed. This is reflected in all its facilities: reception, dining halls, rooms, the beach, kiosks, a la carte restaurants, etc. The staff are well-trained and very friendly. There is plenty of personnel...

I'm a retired GM for hotels and I must say that this was one of the best hotels that I've stayed in. The Food, Service, rooms and location are just excellent. We really enjoyed our holiday and will be back again next year.
