Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback following your stay at the Aquila Porto Rethymno Hotel. We do appreciate and understand your comments regarding the incidents on the beach, however as explained to you at the time, the beach is a public beach. We, the Hotel Management also tried to explain to you that the hotel does not have any authority to interfere with the day-to-day running of the beach - even if it is in terms of providing help with the lifeguards. The Municipality of Rethymno is the only administrator of the beach, since this is a public beach and is the only liable institution for beach life guarding. I would also advise that our Beach Boy always warns about the absence of lifeguards, but many guests insist on swimming at their risk. It is therefore possible that they missed the warning signs before entering the sea. Thank you once again for taking the time to provide us with your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kindest regards Dimitris Anastasiadis General Manager

Just returned home from a ten day stay at this hotel. What a lovely hotel it is, location is great, ten min stroll to the port and just across the road is a lovely beach with free sunbeds and towels. We were half board at the hotel and could not fault the food, they cater for

No it doesn’t, you have to pay for the drinks at the table or add the bill to your room. The drinks were quite pricey!

There were quite a few when children when we visited this year during our second week. We visited the middle two weeks in June. I have moved back a week next year hoping to avoid children. This hotel really should be adults only as there is absolutely nothing for children to do. Usually we holiday at Sensimar resorts which are adults only. Steer clear of the school holidays and the bordering weeks. Your not awful I don’t want to spend £4000.00 on a holiday to be bothered by children.

Most of the a la carte menu is at an extra cost even to all inclusive guests. There are only a few choices included. We have always stayed all inclusive so I can’t comment on half board guests.
