Went for a pre-season vacation. Lucky to find this nice hotel, near the beach whitout being in first row. Walk distance from the cozy town-center. Very nice and friendly staff and a clean and nice pool.

The Bio Suites is a great hotel, situated a 4 minute walk from the sandy beach and an easy 20 minute stroll along the beach road promenade to the old town of Rethymon, which is a must to get lost in and enjoy. If we were to return to Crete we would stay here again. The hotel looks clean and welcomng from the outside and this continues throughout. The multilingual reception team were courteous, very helpful and available 24/7. The room we stayed in had comortable twin beds, TV, fridge, kettle, airconditioning, ample storage space, balcony (ours overlooked the street but others do overlook the swimming pool area) and a great shower. Daily housekeeping available, which you controlled via request buttons by the door, or a 'Do Not Disturb' DND option. The food is buffet style and catered for all international tastes, was excellent quality, lots of choice and the lunch / dinner selections changed daily. If you were not on a package, the breakfast cost just Euro 8, lunch Euro 10 and dinner Euro 12 - this is really good value given what was available to eat. The restaurant staff were very attentive, cleared up used plates and cutlery quickly and we never had to wait to be seated. Good selection of wines to buy. The swiming pool area was well spaced out so you were not sitting right next to other guests, the pool was a good size, protected from the wind given it is surrounded by other buildings. The hotel is one block back from the beach road and the Bio Suites have their own area on the beach for their guests, who can pay Euro 9 for two sunbeds and a parasol. The beach is expansive, the sea was warm and the area was ideal for children. Numerous showers available to wash the feet off when leaving and with boardwalks to use as the sand did get hot. Transfer to Heraklion airport was 1.5 hours along the coastal road so not too onerous. There are lots of restauarnts, bars, cafes, ice cream & tourist shops and supermarkets in the close vicinity. Summary - really pleased we stayed here and happy to return - both the Bio Suites and Rethymon are a great place for a holiday.

Again we had an excellent stay, good food, lovely staff. The hotel is clean and cosy and a 15 m8nute walk from the old town of Rethymnon with good bars and restaurants and nice shopping area. The hotel has a private beach with a good beachmenu and very nice beachboys. I would recommend the hotel and the city of Rethymnon.

Absolutely wonderful time! The swimming pool is big and warm and the children’s pool was just perfect for my 3. The hotel is immaculate in all areas and the cleaner didn’t stop. I would never usually buy food at a hotel restaurant but we ended up having lunch here 3 times. Delicious, really reasonable (cheapest prices I saw all week) and generous portions. My children really enjoyed the magician and he involved all the children in his show. The staff are just the best. The waiting staff couldn’t do enough, recognised us daily and warm and friendly towards us all. The staff on check in always waved and said hello. Cannot wait to come and stay here!

As I arrived I was treated, by the receptionist, as a disposable bag of trash. I had to check in by myself only because the guy was too relaxed to do it. I had to download a qr code app on my phone in order to scan a code and to access a website where to put inside all my information. If you ask your guests to check in by themselves you should, at least, offer them a tablet! After that I was informed that I can get a room but only for one day and then, the second day, I will get another one. Only because their reservation department made a mistake. Not true, because my room was confirmed by the hotel months ago. I had to cancel my plans for the next day because I needed to move again to another room. And I haven't got any apologies for their so called mistake and for the created discomfort. Except for that receptionist and "the reservation department", people are well trained and willing to help. Rooms are clean and large enough to offer comfort. The quality of the food can be improved.

Dear Mrs./Mr. Tomari, we would like to thank you for your review. We would like to mention that there are tablets for our guests to use for web check-in. Usually, guests prefer to use their mobile, but we would like to make known to all future guests that there is a tablet-use service provided at the reception desk. Concerning your stay, we would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused upon your arrival and for you having to change rooms the next day. There has been a mix-up with your reservations program and some room types were oversold. We hope to have the chance to see you again in the future!

Fantastic hotel, so glad we discovered it. All the staff have been amazing, too many names to mention them all but a special mention to Marianna, Zacharina and Victoria. Hotel is kept spotless with comfy beds, nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. Food is what you would expect from a buffet breakfast and dinner and lots of it. The barman makes a mean cocktail! Hope to return at some point from room 414 <3

Great location, hotel and service. The hotel is located just to the east of the town and one street back from the beach promenade. Just 10-15mon walk into the old town. Hotel is modern and clean. Service from staff was attentive and excellent. Breakfast and dinner were buffet style with good choice. Room also spacious with a suite style even for a standard room. Would go back.

We stayed as a family of four for one week. The hotel really exceeded our expectations in every respect. We had a one bed apartment which was modern and very clean and comfortable. The service from all staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. The breakfast was good with plenty of choice, and the hotel bar is a nice area to sit Ana enjoy a drink and snack at any time of day. Our children loved swimming in the pool which looks really pretty at night when it is lit up. The hotel is a short walk from the beach and old town of Rethymno which is a great location. We hired a car and were able to park on the surrounding streets easily. Thank you bio suites for a great stay

What a great clean and friendly hotel. I understand that during the winter of 2022/3 a great deal of modernisation took place and as a result the reception, bar, restaurant, pool area and the rooms looked great. Some of the website pictures are still old and do not show the hotel in its true light. The hotel is situated one block back from the beach road so try and get a room overlooking the pool otherwise the street outlook is a bit boring. We stayed in a basic room with a balcony. It was large, very clean and had a very comfy bed. The staff go out of there way to be friendly and will do anything for you. The buffet style restaurant is very clean and there was always plenty to choose from. Personally buffet style is not for me as my wife and I always like to explore the local restaurants but if you have kids I can recommend going half board. The hotel is very conveniently located for the beach, old town and bus station. It was a great stay and if we ever came back to this part of Crete we would certainly stay again.

We got back yesterday from a week in this beautiful hotel, as soon as you walk in the door you were greeted by a friendly face in a spotless reception area, checked in and went straight up to our room, the decore was lovely threw out and the standard room was perfect which was a good start, straight down for dinner and yet again greeted by more smiley faces who couldn’t do more for you. The food was brilliant and catered for everyone. Me and my partner enjoy trying new things as well as favourites from home with a Crete twist, desserts where my favourite with a great selection. Our stay went far too fast but whilst we were there we treated ourselves to a massage in the hotel spa which was amazing we came away feeling extremely relaxed and no longer any aches and pain. On a daily basis we felt more like family with the staff and like we were the only ones there, we have already discussed our next trip there. See you in 2023 Bio suite Hotel xxxxx
