Rimondi Boutique Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Initially booked this hotel after seeing it advertised on Jetsetter. From the moment we arrived the staff was some of the friendliest we had ever experienced at a hotel. If you have a rental car, you can park in a manned public lot nearby for a small fee. It takes about 5 minutes to take your luggage to the hotel from this point. For us, this was definitely not a big deal. When I inquired about the parking situation in an email, the hotel staff offered to meet us at the parking lot and assist with the luggage. So this can be an option if it is needed. Upon checking in, we were asked to sit and relax, while they provided us an apertif and a local Cretan snack. They also shared places of interest on the map and gave us recommendations about restaurants. We had booked the superior suite which was splendid. It had a living room and bathroom on bottom floor with the bedroom in a loft type arrangement overlooking the beautiful pool area. The bed was quite comfy and the entire living space including the bathroom was nice and clean. We only had one hangup the entire trip which we don't fault the hotel for as it could happen anywhere. The hot water was out the first night. Not only the initial solar heated tank but also the back up system. By the next day, hot water had returned. I must mention the delicious breakfasts. They are served on the relaxing patio next to the pool. You are a given a set menu and are able to chose various items. They have a local Cretan item with freshly chopped tomatoes, feta, olive oil on bread, infamously wonderful greek yogurt with fruit and honey, and eggs cooked to order how ever you like them. These were just to name a few. It was a marvelous way to start your day in Rethymnon each morning. The location was exceptional. It was in the center of old town and was in easy walking distance to the sights. We were sad to leave the pleasant serenity of Rimondi Estate and it's hospitable staff.

Room Tip: superior suites are large with a nice view of pool

My husband and I just spent 11 days and 10 nights in the Rimondi Estate. We could not have asked for a better experience. The hotel is wonderful, but it is really the staff that makes the difference. They are all superb and always had wonderful recommendations. We were looking for more low key things to do, and Maria always had fantastic ideas. We had rented a car for the duration of our stay, and I am glad we did. The best beaches that we found were on the South Coast, about 45 min away. But the location of the hotel makes the majority of the island reachable by car. Samaria was a must for us and Imbros too, and since we were in Rethymno, we did not have to drive more than 1.5 hours. And the breakfast! Yummy! Really we could write a small book about how wonderful this hotel is, but I am glad we looked at tripadvisor before booking. We had booked another hotel with a travel agent, and then looked in tripadvisor and they had terrible ratings. Rimondi Estate lived up to their rating!

We just returned from a wonderful stay at the Rimondi Estate. Our room was perfect, and the staff was incredible. They went above and beyond to ensure our perfect vacation. Their recommendations for two different excurions were great. The hotels location is in a charming section of Rethymnon. Can't say enough good things about this hotel!

Spent there a couple of days in early July. We were beduzzled by the hospitality and high professionalism of the staff. As an installation, Rimondi Estate is a state of the art boutique hotel in the heart of Rethymnon, offering a staying experience, which fully makes up for the relatively higher price.

The Rimondi Estate is everything we wanted for our stay in Rethymnon. We wanted beautiful surroundings and luxury, within easy reach of entertainment, excursions and good restaurants. We also wanted the atmosphere of peace and quiet that you don't get in a large resort hotel. This hotel delivered all of these things. It is exactly as it appears on its website and a lot more. We stayed there for 6 days in August, with some days spent in the town, and some spent driving to local beaches and attractions. The days out were great and the Rimondi Estate was a very relaxing place to come back to every evening.
Staff at the hotel were very attentive and knowledgeable, even helping us to plan day trips with their tips on the best places to go. The food was excellent. The pool was beautiful. The room was clean, well air-conditioned, and perfect for our stay. I highly recommend the Rimondi Estate for an enjoyable and memorable stay in a beautiful area of Crete.

The hotel is beautiful, the rooms were spotless and the staff went well out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. I can't imaging there's a better hotel in Rethymnon. During our week we stayed in both parts of the hotel, and both were excellent.

We just got back home after our 10 day stay at Rimondi Estate and we were really sad to leave!

Everything was great at the hotel, the room (loved the design), breakfast, it's location, being close to everything important in Rethymnon. But, probably the best part was its amazing, helpful and friendly staff! Thank you to Adriana, Angelina, Maria and the other staff members, we hope to visit again!
