The only thing that i did not like was the showers. There were 2 showers there. The downstairs shower was small and you did make the whole bathroom wet, including... More

We really enjoyed our 10 night stay with our twin 6 year olds. The villa was excellent with a very spacious clean pool and a small but well kept garden with table and chairs and sun loungers. We didn't spend much time at the main pool as we didn't need to. The restaurant food is good but not spectacular (... More

Great as always. The vest hotel we've ever visited for a quiet family vacation. We rented a large villa with a private pool. Had a great time! Hotel facilities and staff are amazing. A car is mandatory as the hotel is secluded. Highly recommended for families with kids. The private pool makes the vacation!

We didn't stay here but visited on a recommendation from our hotel in Sissi. We had a coffee and enjoyed the terrific view over Malia. Lovely place if you like staying put in one place, very remote as others have said, you need transport to go anywhere. I am sure you get looked after well, we turned up on our... More

We booked a private villa at the RHR in order to have a weeks total relaxation - and it certainly meet that objective perfectly. It appears that the main business of the location is as an events venue (large weddings etc) however, that doesn't impact the quality of the location as a hotel. The top things worth mentioning : -... More

The hotel is a great one and service and food are so good. It is on top of a hill so you get a good view. The swimming pool is clean. We went there in May 2013 so it was not a busy season so it was the perfect time to us.
