“"NICE PLACE TO STAY"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We exchanged into this resort via Interval International and stayed from the 26.10 to 2.11.2013. the resort is about 1hour away from the airport and we hired a car for the week. luckily our Sat Nav included european maps, which made finding the resort easy. mainly because the spelling on the instructions matched the setup on the sat nav. we were not so lucky with other locations we tried to find. the resort is perched on the side of the road and very steap. the lift was out for at least half of the week, which would make access for anyone in a wheelchair impossible. as per usual for interval, the resort is isolated and to get to anywhere you must have a car. it is well worth your while though, because the area is fab, especially out of season, without being overrun. the town rethinon and hania itself are every atmospheric and lovely, especially in the evening. to get to the former will take about 15 to 20 min in the car and the later is at least 1 hour and therefore we spend the day in the town. unfortunately, i would have liked to have seen a breakfast package, as you will need to pay for your meals and there is no store that close. about 5min in the car. overall we would stay here again, simply because we don/t mind driving and really enjoyed the island. personally, i would like to be nearer the action next time round.

Room Tip: all of the rooms are inward facing and there is not much of a view. the best view is to be had on t...

This resort is isolated and car hire would be a benefit. However, there is a free shuttle service to the beach which is valuable. The staff are relaxed and pleasant. Our accomodation was nicely decorated and the daily cleaning was thorough. We enjoyed breakfasts, lunches and dinners in this resort and thoroughly enjoyed every meal. Antonis the MaitreD is fantastic at his job. The spa is fabulous. I hope the resort continues to thrive as it was not anywhere near full when we stayed at the end of May and it would be such a shame if the resort did not go from strength to strength. The fitness suite planned next year will add to the resort and I understand that development of the resort is continuing. Well done to the management team!

I had a great time during my stay in this hotel (and Crete of cource). I spent 2 glorious-relaxing weeks and I didn't want to return home. The hotel was peaceful, in a beautiful sight near rethymno city. I stayed in room 213 which was a two stories building with its own swimming pool. Comfortable bedrooms (2), beds as well with coco mat matresses, felt like home. The food was delicious with many local recipies. I also enjoyed a lot the spa area, where me and my girlfriend spent many hours during our stay. The beaches in the surrounding areas were excelent and beyond description. Overall I had a great time in this hotel and I will definetely come back in my next vacation period.

Stayed for a wonderful week with my husband in September. The resort is very well outfitted and clean, but the best part is how quiet it is, being distanced from the busy city noise. The staff is great, our service was always very friendly and efficient. We only had breakfast and it was good, but, Antonis the Maître'D was so fantastic that we felt like we were having a 5 star dinner!! If something needed to be fixed, Jimmy the maintenance man was right around the corner! I couldn't have asked for better treatment from the staff. All in all we had a wonderful time at the hotel and our only regret is that we couldn't stay much much longer. We will definitely visiting again in the near future.

Stayed for a week recently. Well constructed, clean & contemporary hotel that cascaded from the top of the road down a hillside. Gorgeous scenery & sea views. Remote location a car is a must. Fantastic Spa facilities with affordable & pleasurable treatments. Clean rooms with great views, daily maid service & fresh towels provided daily. Friendly, helpful staff who were always eager to please. We used the restaurant area for breakfast & the occasional evening meal. The food could be more varied but was more than adequate. Gorgeous infinity pool which was not fully utilised owing to it's coldness. This could be easily improved by heating it in the autumn season.
There is a free shuttle bus that takes guests to & from a nearby beach at the fishing village of Panormo but if you decide to venture further by car there are some gorgeous beaches at Bali, Fodele Bay & at Agia Pelagia.
The city of Rethymnon was easily accessible by car & was a great place to go for shopping or for an evening meal.
All in all a great hotel that I would recommend to friends & family.
