Recently spent a week at the Sentido Aegean Pearl. In the first instance I would say the staff were a delight. A particular mention must go to Haris who kept the sunbeds on the beach very tidy and took orders from guests - he was always very cheery and extremely efficient.
We stayed on a half board basis although, thankfully, always planned to eat out on alternate evenings. On the occasions we ate dinner at the hotel, the food was bland and unimaginative. The room was reasonable, however, the towels were often threadbare, bed linen had seen better days and toiletries were not replenished.
The hotel is classed locally as 5*. My wife and me were of the opinion that it was no more than 3* quality. All in all a disappointing hotel.

Good morning Joe, and thank you for choosing to stay at Sentido Aegean Pearl and for taking the time to write up your review of our Hotel. We would also want to thank you for your amazing comments about our genuinely hospitable and caring staff. We will pass your positive comments on to Haris, our beach boy, and we are sure he will be delighted! We regret that the quality standards and range of our food did not meet your expectations. On our part, we take every effort in terms of quality control and monitoring the Restaurant of Aegean Pearl, the quality and range of its food, on a day-to-day basis, to ensure the highest possible standards. We also pay serious attention to guest feedback, and especially any negative feedback, which is very useful in our attempt to constantly raise our standards, and the overall satisfaction and quality ratings of Aegean Pearl Restaurant on all traveler review platforms and online media are very high. Finally, with regard to the issues raised about our amenities and room services, we regret that none of these were reported during your stay, which would have given us the opportunity to deal with them immediately. Once more, thank you for your review and for your very positive comments about our staff. With our best wishes from Rethymno, Crete.

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
