Fabulous hotel with good rooms. We got a small two room apartment with a lot of space. First we got one at the first floor but people could se everything we did. So we wanted to change. They were very helpful and fixed it for us. Fine breakfast kind staff and a clean swimmingpool.

It is not so easy to write a helpful review, perfect hotel for someone could be the worst for onother one. But... Eltina Hotel is great for long stay, is located 100meters from the beach, next to supermarket but few kilometers from central bus stop, taxi costs 6-7 euros to get there. Atmosphere in the hotel is great, staff helpful and smiling. The room was cleaned every day. Hotel has an outside pool so You can relax in the water if you don't want to swim in the sea. Of course Eltina Hotel is not a five star hotel but is a really nice place. Room is equipped with a stove and oven , tableware so the guests can cook dishes by yourselves.

It seems, the standard old-fashioned apartments, not new, but almost everything works. but the bathroom is new and much better than the kitchen and other furniture. the view in our room was not mentioned, because the balcony was at street level. the hotel is far from the Old Town, wide beaches and bus station. without a car you can use the local bus (ticket - 1 euro, you can buy at reception; but it rarely goes), or walk (30-40 minutes). we were traveling for one night. but I think that a young family can spend a vacation here without any pretensions - you can cook in the apartment. we booked for a day in the season, so although the choice was small, but the price / quality ratio is quite satisfactory. Recommended 👍

For us it was a terrible experience in this hotel.We went on leave to relax, only that I had a real disappointment about the conditions offered by the accommodation.The pictures on the Booking com are just wonderful and not the terrible rooms.Old rooms do not appear on the site and exactly an old room I also received a lot of noise from cars running non-stop.I paid more for an old apartment, than for a new room.I spoke at the front desk and nothing changed for the better. We are very disappointed with this experience and I want to share with you this cruel reality. I do not understand why they do not put the pictures in the old rooms?! Disappointed by the hotel, the agency with those who bought this stay and Booking.

I was here at the beginning of June for the week. The rooms are good enough for what you need them for. The hotel itself was great could not fault the staff or facilities. I think we went a little to early as the strip wasn’t that busy however this was well made up for from petros and Anthony in the bar. They had a great family style bbq to bring the groups in the hotel together. The food was great all round. We will definitely be back, if you can try the cheese and ham toasties. P.s Maria’s toasties are the better than petros’s 😉

Yes this option is definitely very very close to the beach.. i choose it because of the swimming pool, but i dont even try it because there's no sun after 15:00 and did look so interesting anyway.. i think it is expenssive even after the price bargain.. anyway, prices keep rising in Crete, the island becomes a Tourist Colony, so locals don't fit. "a summer manifest" Peace!

We loved our stay at Eltina Hotel. We'd asked for a 2 bed apartment and got 2 very spacious rooms, one being ensuite; 3 balconies; lovely high ceilings; a neat kitchen/dining/living space and tons of storage! It was spotlessly clean with crisp white bedding. The pool area was great esp for kids as inflatables were available to use. Staff were so helpful and kind during our stay, we were made to feel very welcome. Would definitely book again

I had a wonderfully stay at this hotel during August 2018. The location is ten minutes by bus from the centre of Rethynmo and two minutes walk to a pleasant beach with all the amenities you will need. The stand out factor for Eltina is that the staff are very friendly, welcoming, efficient and helpful. Our room, and all the spaces shared with other guests in the hotel are super clean and tidy which the staff work hard to achieve. The only reason I havn't given Eltina '5' stars is that the breakfast, though always enjoyable, could perhaps have offered a little more choice such as scrammbled as well as fried eggs, rather than fried or boiled and also more appetizing croissants.
