Having travelled throughout Europe and the Caribbean, I can truly say this hotel is unique. The genuine warm welcome, friendly & extremely attentive staff - I hate to use this word,as having stayed here 26+ times they are friends/second family to us. So why do we return again & again throughout the year? The hotel is on the seafront with a spotless private sandy beach (a turtle nesting site) & set in beautiful extensive grounds, based on a traditional Cretan village you can wander through the immaculate gardens, sit in the square outside the church, drink something at the traditional Kafeneion, or perhaps you prefer the taverna, the brasserie or one of the restaurants. The beach or one of the many pools,the choice is yours with an abundance of parasols and sunbeds. With such extensive grounds there is always a place of solitude should you wish. All of this is beautiful,but without the incredible people who work here year after year, this would just be a beautiful hotel. They make it a very special place indeed & one that captures your heart & so we will continue to enjoy many more holidays here to come!

Went to this so called 5* in late September for my wife’s 50th . On entering the hotel the reception looked good standing BUT that’s where it ends. Room looked dated , shower room from 1980’s and not to mention the stale smell. Defo not 5* but more like 3* at best Hall ways have to old mouldy carpets and lifts outdated Restaurant buffet style but very average, please don’t go half board because they charge you £4.50 for bottle of water. Be warned wine prices are really silly for the quality. Hey ho but it’s your choice .

Dear Guest, We would like to thank you for choosing the Aquila Rithymna Beach Hotel and for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I was disheartened to learn that you were unhappy with aspects of your stay. We believe and certainly it is the opinion of the vast majority of our guests, many whom stay with us year after year, that our hotel meets the rating it has been awarded and therefore I was very sorry to learn of your own personal opinion. Prices for drinks in the restaurants are clearly displayed and are in keeping with prices for such items in other similar establishments. Thank you once again for your feedback. I sincerely regret that your holiday was not as enjoyable as we would have wished and we really hope to have the opportunity to host you again. Kindest regards Kostas Damanakis General Manager

We had a short vacation in this wonderful place. Our room was great. Near 2 swimming pools and the sea. The staff is very friendly and the food was great. I would recommend it for couples and families with children.

You can see my other reviews of this resort for details of what you can expect. This was my fifth time visiting the resort with my wife. Great to see lots of familiar staff who return to the hotel each year. We deliberately go either in May or September when there are fewer children so we can enjoy a peaceful experience (nothing against children, just looking to relax). I can certainly recommend going at these times if this is what you are.looking for. Very fortunate to witness the last turtle nest being opened and baby turtles make their way to the sea. Very few changes of staff. Big thank you to Nancy who was one of the pool waitresses who always had a big smile and worked tirelessly to serve everyone. I will be returning again soon. Only downside for me is the lack of decent entertainment. That said we tend to focus on the day chilling. If you go please visit the old harbour where you can get excellent seafood and do lots of shopping. Also just outside the hotel is a busy high street with lots of shops and restaurants. See you soon Aquila Rithymna.
