My boyfriend and I visited Kriti beach last June for our summer holiday and we loved it! It is very modern inside, with a spacious reception area and a very clean look. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.
Our room was fairly small, but had everything we needed, a hairdryer, fridge, mirror (because us girlies need a place to style ourselves!) comfortable double bed, and a shower room. When you shower the water can flood slightly on to the floor, but this isn't really a problem. There is also maid service every day, with towels and bed linen changed. Our maid was very thorough. The air-con was a bit naff, as it didn't seem to blow out much cold air, which was especially bad for us as we were there during a heatwave - with temperatures way into the 40s.
Make sure you ask for a sea view - not all rooms have one. We asked for one as we like to go back after dinner and have a drink on the balcony with a beautiful view - and we got one!
Breakfast is great, they have bread, jams, honeys, yogurt, fruit, a selection of cooked food (egg, bacon), cereals, tea, coffee, cold water and juice. We couldn't have asked for more for the money.
The location of the hotel is great, you are only a ten minute walk away from Rethymnon harbour which is beautiful. The tavernas around here look beautiful, but we found them to be overpriced and not as good as the food we ate slightly further out - down the lovely winding streets.
Also, the beach is just across the road. Which brings me to one down side... it is a busy road, which does cause some traffic noise and problems when you come to cross it. I wouldn't let this put you off, but its something to bare in mind. The beach is lovely - the sunbeds are about 7euros a day, and there are staff who circulate selling fresh watermellon and doughnuts. Very nice.
Overall, we had a lovely holiday, and would quite happily recommend it to anyone who likes resorts to be lively, but not 'bangin' (you will not find drunken groups of Brits here).
