Just came back from a family holiday in Crete and after a year and a half in a pandemic and lockdowns, this was hotel incredible and just what we all needed. The food was excellent, no complaints. Always fresh and lots of variety. I love that they have a waffle, crepe and gelato bar, a pizza oven and a gyros stand all day as sometimes we would miss breakfast or lunch and then could still have plenty of choice for food. The food variety and quality was one of my favourite things about the hotel. The only negative would be that you have to book the restaurants in advance otherwise you will end up in the buffet every night. Thankfully my sister looked at reviews and did this for us but otherwise we would have had no idea and they book up fast! The Italian restaurant was our favourite, not just because of the wine and food! But the staff were so lovely and friendly and even gave us a bottle of wine at the end of our holiday because we loved it so much! Dimitri and George were our main servers and they were the most polite and friendly staff that really topped off our experience! If you go, tell them the Chapmans say hello!! Due to covid, some of the spa facilities were closed but we had such a nice time by the pool, the beach, eating way too much food and chilling in the evenings on the terrace bar that I never felt like COVID had hindered our experience at all. I would definitely go back there and would 10/10 recommend. Also, just to name a few other staff who really made the experience for us. Christos and Andreas who worked on the terrace bar were also so friendly, happy, positive and had lots of bants with us. Note for management: make it clear on the website that you have to book the restaurants. The fitness centre was just a small room/hut outside with no air con and could do with a fan or air con. I assume as the hotel has already been refurbished that a new fitness centre/gym will be built, but in the meantime a fan in the hut would have made the classes a little more bearable. Thank you for a great experience, I hope to come back one day!

Hotel's Favorite
It was a blast!! We just had 3 nights at Mitsis an our experience started woth a very lovely welcome and on top of that they gave us a room upgrade with pool entrance. The hotel itself is perfect for families. We are always up for new experiences and normally we wouldn‘t book a hotel for a second time. In this case, we will come back already by the end of this year. Food and Service 5 Stars!!!!

A perfect place !!! Stayed a week within the Mitsis Rinela, a pure enjoyment! Renovated rooms are perfectly decorated, great premises, clean and trendy. Very professional and super friendly staff: from the cleaning ladies to the bartenders, to the hotel mangement, to the waiters, receptionists, maintenance staff... everyone will do his/her best to make you feel welcome and at home, without being fake. The food in the different restaurants as well as in the main buffet restaurant is very tasty, and of good quality. That's much saying from a French-guy ^^ The hotel location is perfect, 10 min drive from the airport. 15/20 min from the center of Heraklion. If I would go back in Creta, it will be in the Mistsis Rinela without a doubt. Congratulations to all the Mitsis team to have made this stay a perfect one !

Great general experience, this is a good 5 star family hotel but wouldn't necessary recommand for couples without children ( might be to noisy with childrens) Each restaurant is good and over a special exprience. I would recommand try to reserve the restaurants before arrival or you might not be able to have the best time slot available. The Steak House was the ig disappointed for me, quit strange to eat a steak in a steak house that is badly cooked... The annimation team ( Jack, Spiros, Anna) offer some great and really fun activites to occupy your day and also kill the calories of the buffet ! Rooms are nice, spacious and modern ! Overall great experience
