“A nice hotel with excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Bio Suites Hotel is located a few minutes walk away from the beach, but not on the beach bulevard so the noise of the traffic is considerably lower. Also the walking distance to the old town is quite short, but long enough for the prices in restaurants and shops in the area to go down a bit. The hotel staff was always friendly and helpfull, and our room was spacious with a fridge big enough to store our water and soda bottles and some food. The hotel's night programme was a bit loud and lasted until 11 pm on most nights, and that may disturb some guests. Other than that I can't think of anything I could complain about.

From ok in sept 2013, to poor in may 2014.
The Food is boring, grey and teastless. Cleaning went from acceptable to bad. We had to ask for clean towels, and to have at least one big and one small each. They deserve 3 stars for location and for trying to keep on smiling.

Nice and clean hotel, friendly staff, rooms a bit small, food in the evening sometimes cold and not a lot to choose from, but a cheap holiday so no complaints. Location is very good. Parking your car by the hotel is a problem.

Last summer our family, my wife, our two sons and myself, stayed at this Hotel. Although the start was not perfect, our chamber was overbooked for one night, we had a wonderfull stay in this Hotel. Fantastic personnel. Helpfull, polite, friendly, we felt very at home and relaxed.
The food was good, not spectecular but good. Rooms were cleaned regularly as the bedsheets.
One special remark to the man that ran the restaurant personnel. He did such a great job to please everyone. Unfortunately I forgot his name but he really deserves a special complement. Thank you dear friend, you made our holidays extra special. Greetings from a happy dutch family. We will certainly try to come back to this hotel. But more early in the season so we dont have to deal with strange people from the East........late August.

Room Tip: We had a poolsite familyroom with two bedrooms. Spacy en comfortable. Worth the extra money.

Our second visit to Crete we stayed at Bio Suites Hotel Rethymnon. A standard 3 star hotel the reception staff were very helpful and polite. The rooms were large and clean but space had been sacrificed for a kitchenette at the expense of the bathroom which was very small. We would have been happy with a kettle and a fridge and found the dining table and chairs,sink,microwave oven and coffee machine unnecessary. We were half board,the breakfast was adequate and catered to most tastes The hotel has a good size swimming pool well maintained with plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas and a coffee shop serving snacks and drinks. Rethymnon is a working resort with a large sandy beach only a 5 min. walk from the hotel. The old town is picturesque with many Venetian ruins and a pretty harbour with plenty of restaurants serving a variety of food at very reasonable prices.

The location is fine. It is just minutes away from the beach and also about 10 minutes leisurely stroll from the Old Town. We were there in October , when the season is winding down , so it was relatively quiet in the area. It might be much noisier in the height of the season. A couple of convenience shops are close by but there are stacks of restaurants and bars too. The hotel has a restaurant too and the food is Ok but not gourmet. Service is excellent and the rooms are spotless. we had a room on the 3rd floor and the bathroom was tiny.The pool in not heated but it did not matter as the weather required us to cool down.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the road. it is not a noisy place but Crete is plagued by motor bikes an...
