This is my first time in Crete. I came with my wife and my childern. Someone recommended me to take this hotel, and I will thank him for that. It is a charming family small hotel just close to the old city (walking distance). The service was excellent, and very helpful with good advise for what to do. The rooms... More

Just popped in the restaurant on the main road facing the beach for mid afternoon lunch. A persuasive Johanna (Yohanna) charmed us into the restaurant. We ordered beer and lunch and both arrived within ten minutes. I had the Tuna Salad and at under 5 euros I must say what a bargain! The wife opted for the Club Sandwich with... More

This place is fantastic. Great service and a warm atmosphere; the rooms have everything you need at a good price. The beachfront is fantastic with great drinks. Mojitos and frappe cappuccinos are their specialty. This is the prime beach spot for young Greek students, and it's easy to see why! A great place to stay.

I had been out for my run each morning while in Rethymno, and saw the endless rows of beach umbrellas and chairs. So, by our last full day, it was our last shot at chillin on the beach like the locals seemed to be doing. We must've been right, because everyone around us spoke Greek. The guy who helped us...

In Rethymnon you can have a hotel in the pretty old town and harbour or by the wonderful sandy beach. you cannot have both as the beach is some distance from the harbour. Choosing the beach, Hotel Poseidon fits the bill perfectly and is excellent value. Having made that choice it is unreasonable to complain about the walk to the... More

I stayed here in April 2014 with a group. Our rooms were clean and more than adequate; the wifi was good, and above all the staff were friendly and helpful. It's about half an hour's stroll from the old town, and there is a dedicated beach area right opposite where sunbeds can be rented for 2 Euros. Every room has... More
