The hotel is a typical 3 star hotel. The rooms were basic and the showers washed more of the floor then myself. Food was ok. The staff were lovely but waited more on the Germans. English were ignored . My biggest let down was sharing my pool area and beach with dogs. I would not of booked this hotel if... More

The rooms are simple, spotlessly clean and perfect for a beach holiday. All the staff and owners are very friendly with great attention to detail. The 5euros for two sun beds, table, umbrella and cold water is well worth it if you are spending most of the day on site and you can swap between the sun beds on the... More

We have just returned from our week long holiday at Golden Beach, myself, husband and 4 year old daughter. The hotel is really nice. The rooms were good, fairly plain but with everything you need and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was very tight, and we only had a shower. The little balcony was nice to have, but we had a... More

Golden Beach is a family-run hotel in an excellent location east of Rethymno. It has a direct access to the 11 km long sandy beach and has two sweet-water (I have to emphasize this as in Crete many hotels have only seawater pools!) pools and a small pool for young children. The hotel is extremely well-kept, spotless clean, members of... More

I have just returned from a week at The Golden Beach Hotel. The hotel room , pool area and beach area was spotless . The rooms were cleaned daily and you could change your towels daily if you wished. The location was great, with supermarket just outside the entrance along with variety of shops and good restaurants. The bus stop... More

Just got back after a two week stay. Fantastic location, on the beach and very close to usual touristy shops and bars. Beach is very shingly and rocky, beach shoes a must, can get very windy and high waves, so most days red flag was up. Hotel pool was excellent, only 5 euro for 2 beds and parasol and cold... More

What a super Hotel! The location and look of this hotel is top class. I felt that the effort that went into the daily updating of the terrace, seating area was very well done and classy. Each day different voile curtains and decorations transformed the whole atmosphere of the outside entertainment area, using colors to create a different look. The... More
