We've stayed in many, many hotels for both holidays and work - from the Hilton to the Holiday Inn to Hostels - all for different reasons, so we do know what we like - this was absolutely the best - without a doubt. Beautiful room - we had a street view which was perfect for us as we like to watch life as it happens - the double glazing meant we had no noise through the night and the air-con was a life saver in the 38 plus degree. Location Location Location is always our motto and this hotel worked for both the glorious beach and the wonderful atmospheric town. We felt extremely safe and the people of Rethymnon were as friendly, generous and gracious as we remember from 14 years ago when we first went. It is a buzzy, young, lively resort but with very classy bars and restaurants available and we loved the fact that most of the folk who were in the bars and restaurants that we went to were local. We also found it very good value for money.

Room Tip: If you like the street view 207 is perfect.

Just returned from a wonderful 3 weeks at the Astali. The welcome from the family is genuine and you are immediately made to feel like you are among friends. The hotel is very conveniently situated for the beach, the old town and the many restaurants that Rethymno has to offer. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Crete and will be back next summer.

We returned from a fantastic 2 weeks holiday in Crete,staying at the truly wonderful Astali Hotel in Rethymnon.We can only agree with Keith and Wendy(whose company we enjoyed during our stay) in saying the family run hotel is friendly and welcoming.It felt like home from home.Everyone in the hotel team was a pleasure to talk to.The location is perfect,ideal for the beach,harbour or the old town.We never missed a breakfast,even though we had quite a lot of late nights enjoying Ouzo and Lemonade at the hotel bar,enjoying the wonderful warm company of our friend Anestis who looked after the desk and bar at night time.We have been trying to replicate the delicious Greek yoghurt with Honey served at breakfast time,since we came home,but the sun and atmosphere of the Astali is missing.This was our best holiday in 26 years of marriage,we will be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 210,at the rear of the building.It had a balcony with grapevines,complete with bunches of grapes,close to the railings.The room was spacious and quiet and very comfortable.

We have just returned from a fortnight staying in the Astali Hotel. The family who run the hotel are very friendly and welcoming. Krisanthi, Yanis or Marios are always on hand to help with any queries, or just for a friendly chat. The hotel is very clean, with fresh towels daily and bed linen changed on alternate days. The location is handy for both the beach and the resort centre. The people staying here were also very friendly, we spent a few late evenings having a drink on the terrace chatting with fellow guests, several of which have stayed here many times.

Just back from two weeks in the Astali Hotel, which we thoroughly enjoyed as we did two years ago. The family are so kind, cannot do enough for you. The Hotel is spotlessly clean, clean towels every day and linen every second day. Centrally located, an ideal place to spend a relaxing holiday. Anybody worrying about the trouble in Greece should not be put off visiting Crete as we saw no evidence of any unrest whatsoever. The people are as kind and friendly as they have always been in the 20 years we have been visiting Crete.
