The hotel and it’s facilities were even better than last year. They kindly gave me the same room as last year at my request but they are all similar. The pool and beach are very nice and the beach is only just across the road. I went to the day break sessions most weekday mornings which were a nice way of loosening up while enjoying the sea and the fresh air. There is plenty of room between sub beds even late in the day. There is a good choice of food for breakfast and dinner, with a minor quibble that water from the hot water urn isn’t hot enough if you want decaf coffee or a tea. Also while there was a large selection of fruit, along with meats, cheese, cake etc, it would have been nice to have melon chunks or strawberries or another soft fruit and the bananas were over ripe. The service in the restaurant is super efficient under Vaggelis’s calm command and Eugenia and Joseph should also be congratulated. Vaggelis was particularly helpful and reassuring when I caused a spillage as I am a little clumsy

Stayed at the Sentido in a group of six. Our rooms were clean and hotel staff were great. Breakfast was good with large variety. Hotel was in a great location on main road and easy walk to restaurants and shops.

Many thanks to all the staff who made our stay so very special! This was our 4th year staying with you and every time we have received such a warm welcome that it seems like returning to a much-loved family. Upon arrival, after a long day of travelling, we appreciate being able to relax in comfortable seats while our registration and luggage are being taken care of (no standing at reception desk). There is a fantastic choice of food - so much, that we are never able to sample everthing! The bedrooms are very clean and comfortable. When our daughter was ill and required hospital treatment, the reception staff were so supportive and arranged for the doctor and taxi to hospital. Following her return to the hotel they liased with dinning staff for special diet food to be cooked and brought to her room. Harris on the beach is a lovely friendly man who was so attentive and looked after us all so efficiently with organising sunbeds, food and drinks. A special thanks also to Uli, who made such a difference to our stay when she sorted out a detail with our rooms. A very relaxing holiday!

Located in front of the beach the SENTIDO is really a rare pearl.
Very good welcome and very friendly and helpful staff.
We had a room with private pool but there are several pools in this hotel.
The restoration is correct and the menu changes every day.
We recommend it

We had a nice week at Sentido Aegean pearl in June 2018. A very good bed in the room that was on the back side of the hotel. Not the greatest view but silent and out of the afternoon sun. Free sunbeds at the beach, with the possibility to order food and something to drink at the beach. Nice breakfast and a nice and helpful staff. The open bathroom solution was ok for us, but can be a problem if you like some privacy in the bathroom.

Hello and thank you for staying at Sentido Aegean Pearl and for taking the time to review our Hotel! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we are very happy that you appreciated and enjoyed Aegean Pearl, its setting and services. We understand your concern about the open bathroom design.

Once more, thank you for your custom and nice review. With our best wishes from Rethymno, Crete!
