We stayed at the Rimondi Estate for 2 nights.
We had an Executive Suite which was maisonette, with the bed upstairs and a large sitting area as well as the bathroom downstairs. We had direct access from our room into the lovely courtyard which features a (small) swimming pool (which is an exception for the hotels in the old town of Rethymnon) and a lounge area.
Breakfast was devine, with a large selection of local produce and warm dishes.
The service at the hotel is not 100% comparable to other 5 star hotels: Staff seems to be shared with the hotel next door, which is why the reception desk was sometimes left empty. To order something from the bar/restaurant during the day proved difficult (meaning you have to shout out for staff around the hotel) at times because mostly no staff was around. I also had a massage from the spa menu which I had to pay cash (without informing me prior to the massage) because it was not possible to charge this to my room. Definitely not the service I expect from a 5 star hotel.
Really the only downside to this hotel was the a bit lacking service from the staff even though they were very friendly.
