Really welcoming staff at this hotel they cannot do enough for you. The ladies on reception were brilliant and organised our Covid tests for our return. nothing was too much trouble for them. Maria and all the other restaurant and bar staff were also really friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. The hotel itself is definitely 4 star and we found it was nicely located for the old town , the beach was only a 10/15 min walk away . The pool on the roof is an added bonus to cool down and has lovely views towards the sea. The food is good although as the same in all half board hotels it can become a bit repetitive but there are some lovely restaurants where food is relatively cheap. A lovely hotel to stay in away from the crowded beach front ones.

The rating relates to the travel period August 2021 (Corona) and room 115, traveling as a couple without children. Normal requirements for equipment and food, no luxury travelers. Hotel in general Completely renovated and very stylish, chic and modern, rooms, restaurant, bar and pool area. Few parking spaces in front of the hotel but about a 2-5 minute walk public parking lot day ticket 5 euros. As it seems usual in Greece, the safe in the room costs extra, towels from the room are not allowed to be taken to the pool, some can be borrowed for a fee. Since the pool can also be used by non-hotel guests, it is unfortunately not possible to use it spontaneously, either you reserve in the morning with your towels or at the reception. Because of the non-hotel guests the pool occasionally becomes a children's pool when 10 small children practice swimming and diving. Very central location, the old town and the beach can be reached quickly. Meal Breakfast as a buffet was completely sufficient. Dinner as a buffet, salad and desserts very tasty, main courses relatively little choice and not our taste. Unfortunately, the food was also not labeled. Half board does not include drinks, 1 liter of carbonated water and 2 wine costs 12.5 euros. Corona requires disposable gloves and wearing a mask at the buffet, but this was disregarded by many guests and unfortunately tolerated by the staff. The atmosphere in the restaurant area is calm and relaxed. Room 115 Standard Room First floor and balcony to the street If possible, take a room on a higher floor to have a better view and more quite. In the case of small things, the design was more important than the function, so you can only switch on the light in the bathroom next to the entrance door, the shower partition is too narrow, the entire bathroom gets wet when you shower, no doormat in the bathroom. The room was very badly soundproofed both from the street and from the hotel hallway. The beds are very comfortable only the pillows were too hard for us.

The hotel is near to the d city. Is very new renovated. Very nice rooms, big with all the facilities you need. The staff is very friendly and they take good care of you. At the restaurant, fot breakfast and dinner the food is very good, with variouse type of food, pastries and fruits. The roof top pool is superb, perfect at the day time but also at the night time with a bottel of nice wine. Perfect time spend here.

We stayed here at the end of July and we only have nice words about this hotel. The location is excellent, 5 minutes walk to the old town and 15 minutes to the beach. The hotel was renovated in 2019-2020, so everything looks great. We had a triple room on the 4th floor, large and comfortable (that was cleaned daily), with a nice balcony. The air conditioning worked perfectly, as did the wifi. Although we arrived very late at the hotel, after 11 pm, they informed us that we had dinner in the fridge. In the same way, when we wanted to leave early in the morning to explore the island, they provided us with a packed breakfast. That helped us a lot. We also liked the food which is very good and varied, but you should also try the food from the local taverns. A special thanks to Ms. Maria, who made us feel like home, talking to us like old friends, giving us tips on places to visit. Dear Maria, you are such a special person! As we told you, you are the salt and pepper of this hotel! PS: We appreciated that all Covid rules were followed.

Jo-An Palace is a recently fully renovated hotel in the very heart of Rehtymno. All rooms have balconies, we were lucky as we could see the sea and the beautiful park from ours. The hotel staff is extremely kind and attentive, our rooms were cleaned daily and all COVID related safety standards were highly observed. A big thanks to Maria who took great care of us at breakfast and dinner everyday, giving us tips and carefully listening to stories that she probably heard a thousand times. The food was of good quality, a good balance of meat and vegetarian options and the menu did not repeat itself once. And of course, the rooftop swimming pool cannot go unmentioned ! Enough space for everyone with a great view of the city.
