Really friendly hotel staff, we were met every day with a warm greeting. Breakfast was great and varied every day. The rooms all have balconies with a full sea view and had all recently been modernised; very clean and comfortable with all the appliances you would need (fridge, kettle etc) to prepare basic meals. The location for us was brilliant, as it was close to a secluded and sheltered beach (which would be ideal for young children) and near to a few lesser known restaurants and bars to the west of the main city. We enjoyed the 10 minute walk into town every night, stopping on the way for a beer at the bar (next to the community swimming pool) overlooking the sea. What really stood out about the hotel though was that when accidentally I left my driving licence and credit card in the room, the owner took the trouble to contact me and couriered them back to the UK and wouldn't hear of me paying for that. That was a really excellent level of service - Thank you Stelios!

This hotel has sea view rooms and a beautiful pool with sea view! When you leave the hotel you are right on a little rocky picturesque beach where only locals swim. The rooms are spotless, modern and cleaned every day with fresh towels. The owner of the hotel is super friendly and will give you tips on where to eat the best authentic food. Around the hotel are several restaurants with breathtaking sea views who serve delicious Greek food. If you wanna eat in the city, the Old Town is within walking distance. Overall a perfect Cretan experience. Would defenitely recommand to everyone!

Probably the most beautiful hotel I've ever been to, especially considering the price. An amazing ocean view from both the hotel room, the dining hall and the pool area/pool bar. Located in a nice and calm area, however still in walking distance from everything you might need. The crew here is very professional and nice. Would absolutely recommend if you are going to Rethymnon! :)

What a fantastic place to stay! I found it magical ! The room from the hotel room was stunning! The owner is so kind and would do anytime make sure you are having the best time here. The 2 girls who works at the reception were extremely helpful too. They were so kind to let me borrow the bicycle at no cost to cycle to the beach . There is also a beach right in front of the hotel !it turned up to be my favourite beach . Mind you if you like to see tourists and lots of restaurants, cocktails bar all along the beach then go to the one I went on the bicycle. It is only 10 minutes drive (3 euros to 5 euros by taxi) all can be organised not the hotel . If you want to experience peace and quiet then that beach opposite is just perfect . The hotel is 10 to 15 minutes walk from the old town where you will enjoy shops , tavernes , restaurants … I absolutely loved that hotel and thank you again for your hospitality. If you go to rethymnon do not hesitate just book yourself a room there it is just a dream . Eric from London
