My mother spent a nice week as the restaurant is good with fresh vegetables and food, the rooms are comfortable and nice and the beach is beautifull though if one favours fine sand beaches be aware that the beach is stranded with small stones you need to walk across before entering the water.
The swimming pool are ridicously small and overcrowded which is a pity as the sea is sometimes unswimmable for it may be dangerous due to weather conditions. But overall a good place at one week.

Relaxed and friendly perfect holiday location within easy reach of Rethymnon-bus ride in and 40 mins stroll back- refreshment stops if requred? Good beach opposite hotel-although rather difficult to enter water due to stones-sand shoes recommended- beach sun loungers free .Hotel and staff excellent..Entertainment most nights -could be better.Remember to take a pair of trousers for evening meals as shorts are not allowed-jeans are which is a shame?The only negative comment i would make would be about the pool-very small and open to the towel culture every day.Best of all if your looking for a cosmopolitan hotel look no further-hardly spoke to an english family the entire holiday-a joy for us.

If you want to go to a nice and fine hotel in Rethymno go to Sentido Aegean Pearl Hotel. This hotel is a good choise. This hotel is very new and the design is splendid. It is very modern and comfortable. This is a 5 star hotel. The staff is very friendly to all visitors. They take good care of you and they meet the customers in a very nice way.The athmosfere is very fine. The hotel area is very clean and there is a fine garden with many flowers and trees. Mainly every evening there are fine and high class music and dansing programs. There are 3 outside swiming pools and 1 inside swiming pool in connection to 2 saunas. You can also train gymnastics and order massage if you want. The location is good 50 meter from the beach and 50 minutes walk to the old city and to the nice venetian harbour. I will definitely return to this excellent hotel.

This is a very good hotel, it's rated 5 stars but we haven't had the time to explore amenities such as the gym or spa. It's not a big place, so the pools had a couple of sunbeds free most of the time. Service is friendly and competent. Rooms are modern, clean and have everything you need. We didn't get a sea view, our view was obstructed by the building that houses the dining areas, but it looked like very few rooms had a clear seaview. Breakfast and dinner are buffet-style with a big, rich, tasty choice. The beach outside the hotel is accross the road from the hotel so it's not very quiet, and it's also not exactly manicured, but it's all right otherwise. I suppose they assume most people will rent a car and go around the island and explore many wonderful beaches that Crete has to offer - which is what we did. We weren't blown away by the experience at the hotel, but it was very satisfying.

We stayed at this hotel for 7 days. At first we had a feeling that we were all alone, as it was really quite. A big + is the food:breakfast and diner! A lot of variety on a daily basis with fresh ingredients. Excellent family rooms with good beds, air conditioning and spacious bathrooms (2). We also enjoyed the warm welcome from Martina and Adonis of the jewellery shop. They are very nice and friendly people who are always open for a friendly talk... Oh and don't forget to have a look at some of the most beautiful jewellery they sell, loved it! Also at the spa/gym they have an excellent masseur who is an absolute professional when it comes to giving advice about physiotherapy and sports.

Two points that were a minor disturbance; the stones on the beach and the traffic in front of the hotel. I am sure that they could change that in the near future.

Just returned from The Aegean Pearl Hotel where we spent the most wonderful holiday, everything about it is great, the food, the service, the pools, & definately the rooms. Very comfortable beds & designer rooms. Lovely clean beach, ok, you need beach shoes as lots of pebbles, what more can I say. We are going back most definately.

I can't say enough good things about the Aegean Pearl. Although it is only in its second year of operations, so is very new, it already has laid claim to its place as THE place to stay in Rethymno. Whether for vacationing tourists or business clients, the Aegean Pearl has everything one would need and is definitely the best deal around (and I'm not just talking about price). I highly recommend it. It has become our home away for home and we'll be returning often!
