This was our 5th consecutive holiday at this hotel, we go every year in September to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we have never been disappointed. The hotel is in an excellent location across the road from the lovely beach, and is only a short 10 minute walk from the beautiful town of Rethymno. Eftychis Petrakis, the General Manager, and his staff are to be highly praised for their friendliness and helpfulness especially with the current Covid 19 difficulties. We were surprised to find that Eftychis had arranged a special meal in the Piazza di Porto restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This meal was one of the best we have ever been served, and had been put together and was served by Vassilis Vassilakis the Captain, Piazza di Porto. Our room on the 5th floor was perfectly positioned with a fantastic view of the sea and beach. As always our room was spotlessly clean, as was the whole hotel. The main hotel restaurant served a varied and interesting variety of food, and the restaurant staff were always friendly and efficient. We had a fantastic holiday in the Hotel Aquila Porto Rethymno, and we will definitely be back again in 2021.

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at the Aquila Porto Rethymnon. In these difficult times, the standard was consistently high. The hotel felt extremely safe. The food service and presentation was excellent. We stayed in a sea view room which had a beautiful view and all the amenities we required. There was never a problem with getting sunbeds at the hotel beach opposite. The outstanding feature of the hotel which made our holiday memorable was undoubtedly the friendliness and professionalism of the hotel staff from the manager down under extremely difficult circumstances. A big thank you to you all!

This was not a normal holiday, the virus made sure of that. The hotel was not as busy as I had expected when I booked last November. Indeed the effects on the resort generally were obvious. As this was our first visit to the area we had nothing to compare with so just got on with our holiday. We enjoyed our stay in the Aquila Porto. Our room was a nice size for two, with ample hanging space and cupboard drawers for clothes etc. Importantly we found and beds (and pillows) very comfortable. Room cleaning was "on request" rather than on a daily basis, but was still very thorough. Another important part of any hotel is the restaurant. Again we were not disappointed. the quality and choice of food was very good at every meal. It was obviously not a self service buffet, but the service you received from the staff serving was very good. You often had to ask them to stop putting food on your plate. All the staff throughout the hotel were cheerful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The location of the hotel suited us just fine. The beach over the road with hotel sunbeds was great and there was no trouble getting a sunbed provide you got up before lunchtime. As mentioned by other reviewers it is a ten minute walk into the old town, but (when on holiday) it was a fifteen minute stroll for us. Will we go back to the hotel again? Definitely, hopefully, in the future, we will be able to see what the "old normal" was like in Rethymno and at Aquila Porto.

Even though we arrived late we still had a lovely welcome. As we'd missed dinner we were given a voucher to use for any lunch service. The room was spotless with an amazing view over the beach. Everything felt really safe during these covid times. The hotel went to lots of lengths to keep us feeling safe. Although food choice was a bit limited due to not having a full buffet (due to covid), the food was delicious and served by a very friendly young man. Our waitress Dimitria was amazing. In fact, all staff in all departments were friendly and helpful. It was my 50th whilst there and they made me feel extra special with a birthday cake. The hotel is 10 minutes walk to the old town, with a beautiful private beach opposite We had the most amazing holiday made all the more special by staying at this very lovely hotel. We WILL be back x

Very friendly staff and the hotel has good amenities. It is however a little bit dated and could use an update. Other than that it was great staying here and I would definitely recommend it to friends.
