Rethymno Residence
Ranked #13 of 15 Hotels in Adelianos Kampos
Reviewed September 8, 2013

we stayed for a week in August at Rethymno residence, this hotel is realy great value, spotlessly clean and the food was excellent, they could do with a few more sun beds, umbrellas and unfortunatley do not have an animation team apart from one rather grumpy looking lady who did water arobics 3 times a week so a little quiet !! the staff were really friendly especialy the front barman who rememberd what we drank each night.
There was fantastic sunsets on the beach just across the road, and it was overall a great holiday.

This hotel have good location:across the road, 5 minutes and you are on the pebble beach, on the left there is the Aquilla Rethymno beach and on the right we were going to the cosy taverna Blue Sky. We book the superior pool view room and were accommodated in the room facing the 1st pool near the entrance. There are 3 pools in the hotel and I think the best rooms located in the
buildings around the second pool in the inner yard. The hotel as I see usually is fully booked as some families stay in its apartments around month. We have been on HB basis. The choice of food is not big but enough for 3star hotel.
The Rethymno residence hotel have 4 star on the entrance and 3 star in the room's leaflet. I think this is good 3super hotel. I never stay in 3star hotel before and this summer my choice of economy hotel was successful,it is possible to stay in 3star in Crete.

My family and I really enjoyed our holiday to Crete, and we were really pleased with the choice of hotel. We stayed in a 2 bed apt on a half board basis. Great value for money, clean, spacious. The food was excellent - varied and good quality - and the restaurant staff were very friendly and welcoming and in particular Yianni a waiter and the young lady carving the meat each evening were a great asset to this establishment. Next time would go all inclusive as this would have saved money and the choice was so good in the restaurant that there was something for everyone.

Lovely hotel, beautiful flowers & some up-grading on parts of the gardens being done as we left. Nice children's small play area, our son enjoyed the Animation with Gogo! Choice of 3 pools which were cleaned every evening, plenty of sun beds, towels provided. AI was a good choice for us, even with 2 young children. Good choice at breakfast & dinner, served from 6.30 until 10pm lunch a little of the same but to be honest in the heat of the midday sun, you do not need much. Ice cream on tap, drinks & cake provided in the afternoons then dinner. All food was to a high standard & Chef Michaleis & Gannis the staff were great! Not entertainment every night but have to say it was fine just with background music. Room was nice, air conditioned in both parts (we moved after first night as were placed above the restaurant but the staff were accommodating!) Hotel areas were clean & housekeeping staff were to be seen at all manner of times! I used to work in hotels & am picky but I have to say, with 2 children, nice weather, nice food, pleasant staff & a basic but pleasant room, I would recommend this hotel. Kids were fine, met others & enjoyed the run of the place. Only thing I would say is, bear in mind the transfer from Heraklion is an hour hour & half with stops to other hotels but a nice drive on the coast road.

Room Tip: If you can, get transferred to the adjoining apartments as we did & got a roof top terrace! Bed...

Great place to spend your vacation :) Had lots of fun at the greek night, dancing sertaki!
Very friendly environment, delicious food at the restaurant, not overcrowded pools. The beach is across the street, not far at all! And the hotel is perfectly located to rent a car and go wherever it takes u, its in the middle of everything and not that far from the airport. Free wifi with free tablets in every room - rare for the 4 star hotel. Anyways, just go there and you will DEFINITELY enjoy it! :)

Not a 4 star as marked by the hotel door, but decent 3 greek star hotel.
Minuses:
* the toughest bed I've ever slept on,
*absolutly unsafe and not a child friendly playground
*dinner time just two hours from 7 to 9 p.m.
Food choice quite limited, but never left hungry.
Pluses: 3 pools, quiet, free WIFI in the lobby.
We had half board, but there are a lot of cozy taverns nearby, so I will recommend rather visiting them than having dinner in the hotel every night.

Just had 11 nights at this hotel and I can say we had a great time , nice and quiet time of year to visit Crete as its not too busy , there was no entertainment on until the night before we went home but the 2 belly dancers were very good, the meals in the AI plan were on the whole very tasty and always fresh, our room was basic but with a kettle and a full size fridge, with 3 pools you always had a choice of sun beds, most of the staff were very friendly and helpful , all in all we had a great time here and would return .

Room Tip: pool view rooms looked to get much more sunshine on their patio.
