“Good resort close to everything!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights. It was a central meeting place for us and it was the best choice! The hotel owner, George, was extremely helpful and hospitable. The hotels location is great. One street back from the beach and the Main Street. Would return to this property!

Great location, close to the beach and the town centre. Excellent service from staff. Good and spacious room, we had a mini suite for family 2 adults + 2 children. Good cleaning every day. Very good and breakfast. We'll be happy to visit this hotel again.

We only stayed for 1 night here and arrived at 1am. The night reception team were very helpful and efficient.
We only asked for a superior double but got a two bedroomed suite with a large balcony overlooking the pool. It was clean with loads of wardrobe space. The only downside was a windowless small bathroom.
The breakfast was brilliant with loads of choice and excellent service from the friendly staff.

Room Tip: Choose one with a pool view

Rethymnon has a crazy one way system, so locating the hotel was a bit tricky. Best to go down to the port area and ask for "BIO", which is only a block back from the waterfront. We managed to park directly outside the hotel but this may not always be possible. Parking in the town center is never easy, however there is a large car parking area not far from the hotel. The staff in the hotel are very friendly and have been employed for a number of years with a low turn over rate and this has created a sense of fun and familiarity that return guests seem to enjoy. The rooms were spacious and reasonably priced, which was important as we were booking as a group of friends with children. Most of the leisure activities are centered around the large pool area, with bar and restaurant and plenty of sun lounges. Hold on to your towels, as these are rented and will need to be returned. Overall, a relaxing and pleasant stay in a clean and ecologically sound hotel.

Room Tip: Check for last minute deals online. Smokers have allocated rooms. Large balconies on most floors.

We had a great stay at the hotel and the room, and balcony, was big enough for the whole family. Very good cleaning staff.

Mostly great service but at the free dinner they tricked us into buying a very expensive wine and they refused to take it back. Not very pleasant at all.

The kids loved the pool!

The free wifi was up and down all the time and you had to log in almost every hour. You also needed a login for every unit. But it worked by the pool.

Breakfast was good and with lots of staff. But if you are seated outside, beware of all smokers.

Especially for those who like that the hotel is close to the beach, then this is a good choice. You may find several restaurants from the neighborhood so that you are not forced to go to the old city every night if you feel tired.
The hotel has a decent pool of its own if you prefer to be there.
The atmosphere is good and the staff is friendly and they arrange almost every evening some kinds of happenings.
The breakfast is excellent.
As far as the rooms are concerned the normal rooms are a bit small but if staid only a week it is Ok.
I have been there now three times.

Room Tip: You could ask for a bigger room from the pool side on the 4th floor or upwards.

My daughter and I stayed in this beautiful hotel while visiting Crete. The best part of our visit was meeting George Fragakis. The room was great, the staff was professional and the food was superb. We look forward to future visits.
