We stayed at the Aquila Porto in June which will be our third visit to this hotel. It was my birthday and we wanted to celebrate it with our daughter and partner who had not been to Crete before. We both had very nice superior sea view rooms . which was an upgrade . I would like to say a big thank you to Mr Floros Andreas Crs Manager of the Aquila for making this holiday special for us and for the lovely birthday cake. Also a big thank you to the Manager of the Aquila Porto. As we have stayed at this hotel before we know exactly what the rooms are like and in my opinion if you want a nice room I would advise that you upgrade from a standard room to a sea view./superior. The food is excellent as this is one of the main reasons why we come back again ..There are a few little touches which was missing this year and that was the big bowl of strawberries and cherries at dinner which I missed but I expect management are cutting down on this as some people were filling up their bowls to the brim which is out of order also the little glasses of fresh lemon or raspberries smoothies which were given to you as you walked into breakfast . The hotel has a very nice private beach which is just across the main road and sun loungers umbrellas and towels are free but please note as from this year the first three rows from the sea is now payable. I think it was 9 Euros or if you wanted a canopy on the front with cushions sun loungers and curtains at the side I think the price was something like 36 euros which might include fresh fruit but please check this out at reception should you be interested. .Entertainment is very good and sometimes goes on to quite late so you might hear this if you were hoping to have an early night . There are excellent tavernas near by should you be on B and B or half board. I would recommend The La Dome Excellent. we had excellent service at this hotel and our thanks to the staff who in our opinion went the extra mile. Eleni kitchen main restaurant this lady made me porridge without sugar every morning and always had a smile on her face. Also thanks to Gianna main restaurant .bar outside Dimitra. Stella. Toula All worked very hard . Reception Eve . Stelios. Nikos. Manager George Gregory Johi.. We will be back

Not the best experience. Our bathroom is sadly in need of refurbishment (room 302) and in its present state is very difficult to get in and out of bath/shower. Bedroom a good size and cleaning standards are excellent BUT balcony so small only room for one person to sit out there in comfort! Not much of a view as beach view is side on and main view is of apartments opposite. Food in dining room is always luke warm although tables are usually available for seating. Also the hotel reception area should be clearly indicated from the road as when coaches arrive people with luggage are totally bemused as to which way to go. Maybe signs painted on path way? Reception staff are brilliantly helpful however and the TUI rep, Tori, is the best holiday rep we've ever encountered!

This is our 4th stay at this fabulous hotel. We don't usually visit a hotel more than once, but we can't wait to return here each year now. The location of the hotel is excellent and it is right by the beach, with its own beach area with sunbeds and a beach service by waiters from the hotel. It is a 10 minute walk into the bustling old town of Rethymno, which has a beautiful Venetian harbour, and numerous shops, restaurants and bars. Our room at the hotel was excellent, with a superb sea view. The staff are all very friendly, and Filio Toska, the Guest Relations Manager, is always on hand to answer any enquiries. The food in the hotel restaurant is excellent with a wide range of choices, and plenty of staff to cater for your needs. We will definitely be back here again next year for a 5th visit.
