L'Tur highly recommended this 'luxury 4 stars' hotel to us. But it turns out, this crappy hotel should be rated no more than 2 stars. This hotel is not a good choice neither for the backpacker nor for those who would like to enjoy a luxury vacation. If you want to visit Heraklion and other cities in Crete while staying this hotel, it takes you at least 2 hrs to the major transportation station in Heraklion, and from there, you have to take other buses or ferries. Therefore you just waste all your time coming back and forth between bus stations. If you would like to just spend whole day on beach, trying find a decent hotel in the downtown of Rethymon instead of here. The beach in front of hotel, and acturally in front of all the hotels in this neighbourhood, is like rural area. The sand are not soft at all. It was almost killing my feet when I was trying taking a walk before sunset. The room are very small. If you keep the aircondition working at night, it is so laud you can not even get to sleep. If you want to sleep with the balcony door opened, it is so hot in the room, that you can not even breath. There is also a weird noise in our bathromm, which kept us almost all night awake. The travel agency said it is all included. Anyway, we have to pay all the drinks during our dinner and have to pay for a seat on beach. The guest toilett are the worst. Do not use them!
