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.
