“Really nice hotel. Would recommend...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

We stayed at Flisvos Beach in July 2010 for a week.

We grabbed a late deal online, and weren’t disappointed with what we got for the money we paid.

The room was perfectly adequate; good comfy beds and perfectly acceptable bathroom, shower, etc. The room was cleaned and tidied every day. The pool was great, with adequate sun loungers (free) and with a really nice toddler pool attached too.

The reception staff were perfectly friendly, and were always smiling and willing to help with answering our questions and advising on day trips out.

The hotel is on the beach-front near the end of the strip furthest away from the old town. It’s a good 40-50 min walk into town at a leisurely pace. But don’t be put off. The walk along the beach is very enjoyable. However, after a night out in the old town of Rethymnon, a taxi back cost 5 Euros. There are several bars, cafes and restaurants along the beach front. But don’t be put off by that if it sounds tacky and over-touristy. It isn’t.

Although the beach is somewhat cobbly and shale in places, it’s still really nice place to spend the day. There are lots of water sports available – but again, without it being over commercialised and tacky.

The only downside we can think of is the breakfast. Whilst it was not ‘bad’ as such, it was a little unimaginative and seemed to consist of the stock cold meats, cheese, boiled egg and bread that so many Med resorts seem to specialise in. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending the Flisvos Beach for a lower end budget holiday.

PS: I must say, the comment in another review about cockroaches seems to be to be a bit OTT! Ok, so it’s a hot Mediterranean island and there are cockroaches? So what? We never saw any during our stay at the height of the season.

At the arrival we found the room with two cockroaches in the entrance and in the bathroom. We went to the reception to complain, others were having the same problem. We had to change hotels.
