We thought we had a good deal however after the firstday we quickly decided we had chosen the poorer sister, Upon arrival the staff were courteous and provided us with bread, cheese and tomatoes which was a lovely thought despite it being 2am!! The restuarant was clean and the food was adequate however only being half board by the third day we had upgraded to all inclusive as we kept missing breakfast. The downside there was only one pool we could use which got PACKED during the day however we did take advantage of the sunloungers that were free IF YOU WERE ALL INCLUSIVE on the beach across the road. The bar manager took the rules to the next level when it was coming up to last orders (yes last orders on holiday which was a first) we ordered drinks however as we had not finished the ones we had on the go flatly refused us. Annoying!! We had our son with us and were clearly not inebriated so found this very annoying. The Aegean which we were linked to was a clear step up compared to the pearl beach which we had our nose rubbed into as you overlooked them every evening eating in a much plusher restuarant with a higher standard of food. There was only meant to be one star between them however I would say comfortably two. Towels for the beach could only be changed twice weekly which was not ideal and you had to leave a deposit which i thought was inappropriate. The hotel is in a good location and only cost a few euros to the old town which I would highly recommend. Would we go back to Rethymno? definately. would we stay at the Pearl Beach, probably not. It was certainly not a bargain at £3k for 11nights all in all and we had to get our own transfers at £90 each way!
