For our first holiday in Crete we were not disappointed. Awaited at the airport by the hotel shuttle bus, we were received at the hotel Rethimno Mare with warm hospitality by Cristina et Grigoris (besides the whole reception team was full of attention to tourists). Even so late in the night the restaurant remained open waiting for us and the waiters were very welcoming (we very much appreciated). By the way during our stay, every day Nikos and Mihalis, the heads waiters (maîtres d’hôtel) have charmed us with their attention. The hotel is magnificent. In reality it is a great hotel complex composed of several buildings that spreads on a hill. The landscape is wonderful with view on the sea and on the mountain. Beautiful gardens arranged in tiers, 2 swimming pools (one for childrens, another with bar for adults) and private beach by the sea. The hotel also has a tennis court, spa, disco, meeting room, and bar with large terrace open to the sea, Our large room with terrace offers us all the comfort and modernity : tray of fruits, kettel, tea, coffee, fridge with bottle of still water, safe, TV, air conditioning and wi-fi (which by the way works flawlessly throughout the hotel). A well-equipped bathroom with shower, hairdryer, bathrobe. Impeccable household evry day. Easy access to all hotel opportunities : wide corridors, lifts even for access to the beach (by the way an wheelchair user was able to take advantage of all the opportunities of the hotel) A young team of animators (especially Federica and Oskar) offers entertainement for both adults and childrens We would like to thank all those who through their work have assured us an unforgettable holiday in Crete.

Ok experience. Hotel rooms cleaning left a lot to hope for (Why do not clean under the beds or drainage before a new quest? Or why do not swipe the the floor even once during the stay?). Location nice, liked the steep setting and the views. However nothing else the in the close proximity, 30min bus connection to Rethymnon. Pool areas very nice. All-inclusive offering at the pool not very tempting, local sprit with artificial sweet mixtures, best choice was coffee and beer. Ice cream choices nice, most snacks the same as with lunch or dinner. Breakfast, lunch & dinner satisfactory with the grill offering, not much variance though trough the data. The "management" of the hotel especially during the meal times very weird, not sure if just black humor or just bad customer service. Employees seemed to be concerned of the management, as there was video survaillence for eg. to the pool bar on customer interaction. Nice surroundings but weird feeling.

My son and daughter and I stayed for 1 week. The hotel management and staff are very good. On arrival we were allocated a better room than the one we had originally booked. I appreciated this but unfortunately the electric socket by the bed in the room did not work and a switch in the bathroom above the shower was hanging off the wall. The towels were stained and very worn and the robes where very old and faded and both the towels and robes were still damp. The bath was also rather yellow and stained and the plug area was extremely dirty and mouldy. I was disappointed as I expected better than that for a 4 star rated hotel. So I did go to reception and I spoke to the management. They did put everything right as soon as they could with the linen and the following day we were moved to a much bigger airier room that we preferred to the junior suite as the partition in the suite made the main room very dark. We were very happy with our room from that point on. The food was very good. There is a great range on offer and you can always find something you like. The waiters are extremely helpful and attentive. Nikos was brilliant and always was very helpful and treated us like old friends every time we arrived. The very best part of the holiday for my children was Oskar and Fredrica from the animation team. They put in a huge amount of work to keeping the kids and adults entertained with games and sports throughout the day. They are both a huge asset to the hotel and have it would seem boundless enthusiasm for their work. They are often tag teaming to ensure all guests have an opportunity and a suitable activity to take part in. Oskar is constantly talking to all the guests and providing a very unique view of life and Fredrika provides an essential and very pro-active role particularly patiently entertaining the children in the mini club and my son was very impressed with her football skills and boundless energy. Overall we had a fantastic holiday and the pools and outdoor facilities are excellent. We also visited Rethymnon town and port. We went to Fortessa Castle and saw the ancient fountain in the town. We had pancakes in an excellent little creperie called La Piazza which was very good value. Do use the local bus service as it is very good value and clean transport. The drivers were also very helpful when you don't know where you are! The tiny "supermarket" down the road is run by a lovely chap called Tony. On our final day (Wednesday) we went horse riding which the hotel reception arranged for us. We had a wonderful ride on safe horses and the countryside and views were fantastic. Christina from the reception team also deserves a special mention as she was also very very helpful and understanding when we had a few issues on arrival. We would like to thank her and her colleagues. The beach area was not as nice as we had hoped but that was not the hotels fault as bad weather earlier in the year has wrecked lots of beaches on the island and it's a struggle for them to clear and make good again when so much has been washed away. The lobby/lounge area is best for WiFi along with the pools and other public areas. I think the star ratings in Greece are not quite the same standard as in other countries at the moment but on the whole we had a lovely stay and it was the attentive and caring staff that made it a great place to be.
