Such a lovely family, the hotel is clean and immaculate at all times. We would recommend it to anyone, the welcome from the family is genuine and you are immediately made to feel you are among friends.

We chose this hotel because of the reviews we read. We can only endorse what has been already written. A wonderful welcome, a warm friendly atmosphere and attention to detail hard to match even in a 5 star hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. A friendly welcome each time we met the owners. The cleanliness was amazing. The breakfast were good with a buffet variety. The number of Cretans who used the hotel were many; a good sign if the locals use a place we felt. It's location close to the town was excellent meaning we could get around on foot very easily. The beach was wonderful with a variety of facilities available as waiter servcie from a beach bar. We fully intend to return in the future

Room Tip: All the room as identical so no real advantage to selecting any above another.

Just spent a week staying at the Astali. Thomson 'small and friendly' - and that's exactly what it was. The staff were kind, helpful and generous with their advice and knowledge of local restaurants and places to visit. Very important info about which harbour restaurants to avoid due to their 'pushiness' at wanting your custom - Zephyros is the one to visit. Everywhere neat and tidy. I had a single room but there was a nice balcony so I could sit out when I wanted.
One great plus is the shower room downstairs especially if you have an evening flight. Plenty of towels provided. Good location - near the beach as well as the old town. All in all a lovely week away in the sun.

The hotel is in a very good location as it is both close to the town and the sandy beaches. The rooms are what you expect. They are clean and basic.

The nice thing about the place is the service. It is run by a family who care very much about the hotel and everyone working its really friendly. We had a problem with our toilet seat which was fixed within six hours. Also one night we hot a phone call from the reception because the guy there forgot to say goodnight and he apologised and said goodnight.

Overall in Rethymnon this seems like one of the best places to stay. You can always ask at the reception about restaurants and things to do and the location makes it perfect to go top the beach and then to town for some nice dinner.

My fiancée and I stayed at the Astali for a fortnight in the middle of June and we had a fantastic time. The hotel is in a really good location as it is literally 2 minutes from the beach, also there's the option to go into the old town at night or into the more touristy area on the sea front. The hotel is situated near to a busy main road but it did not bother us whatsoever as our room was facing the back and also free air conditioning is provided so we slept with the patio doors closed (this also meant we got hardly any mosquito bites!)
The people who run the hotel are fantastic. Attentive, funny, kind and really hard working! They really cannot do enough for all the guests and are continually checking the breakfast buffet to make sure everything's well topped up. We were made to feel so welcome and many of the people staying in the hotel had been back year after year and seemed to be held with genuine affection by the family.
We had a twin room which was quite small but comfortable and very, very clean! The room was cleaned every day and the whole hotel was immaculate at all times.
We were probably the youngest couple in the hotel but the atmosphere is lovely. Both of us said we'd like to go back in a few years and would have no hesitation at staying here again.
