Photos and reviews for these 2 hotels are muddled up throughout. In general it looks like Joan Palace is much better reviewed but llisted under Hotel marmara rethymno palace which has higher rating due to these reviews intended for Joan palace.Even exterior of pic is of Joan palace - which has official 4* not 2* rating. If beach is mentioned... More

After booking 2 weeks, half board, in this hotel in September and then reading the reviews we arrived here with some trepidation. Completely unfounded. First of all our reception at the hotel and our interaction with the staff was excellent, they were so helpful and much more than friendly. Our room was very good, spacious with a comfortable bed and... More

Well, I stayed in room 502, the uniqe room on the roof. The room was enormous ! It was rather a suite and not a typical room. One big room with fireplace, sofa and a big table, a big marble bathroom and a very big bedroom. The breakfast was very nice with good variety and the location is excellent. The... More

When we booked the hotel months ago we waited the good greek hotel. But no no ... Positive: The staff in the reception and the cleaner woman was friendly and helpful. The roof garden was ok, but there was no pool bar (contrary what they say in brochure). Wlan worked well. Negative: Rooms are need of immediate refurbishment. Wall-to-wall carpets... More

Although we had a great vacation on Crete this downtown hotel was slightly disappointing. We selected the Jo-An Palace (****) as on our 3rd Cretan holiday we’d like to rent a car and discover the island’s hidden treasures ourselves. We didn’t need a beach hotel we only searched good dining opportunities and a comfortable room to sleep after the all-day... More

Before you read the rest of this review, it must be said that we would not hesitate to book at the Jo-An Palace again at the price we paid. Also, it is important to understand that the star rating has much more to do with the amenities on offer (24 hour reception, plasma television) than the quality of those amenities.... More

Jo-An Palace (not to mix with Jo-An Beach!) is situated in the very centre of Rethymno and is not for only-beach-lovers. It takes 10-15 minutes walk to the beach. But if you want to have a versatile mixture of history, strolling through narrows Old Town streets, romantic night-life, morning shopping and sandy beach - that's exactly for you. If you... More
