We ve been there during 2010. and it was so nice and warn place.

Very very very friendly personal, everyone speak english, rooms very nice, surroundings very nice, small shop with nice prices in the hotel area (postcards, water...), supermarket 2 minutes away, bus line 2 minutes away, beach 50 m away ...

Really nice and clean rooms, tv channels are not too good but who is going to greece to watch tv, really nice beds, air conditioning, so nice bathroom and surroundings is awesome. They really take care about the gardens in front of the balcony so you can really enjoy your afternoons there.

They have nice cafe, nice pool and really nice sand beach. Sea in Greece is not comparable to any I have seen before, enjoyed so much.

Food is great, you always have 3 main dishes, its mediterranean food quite similar to our local food (we re from Bosnia) so we liked it a lot, a lof of salads and deserts too. Because I really like to eat cook really liked me so he always had few suggestions what to take :))

Hotel is really the awesome place, people at reception very friendly and helpful, we really felt like we re at home.

Only small problem is that hotel is not too close to city, maybe 45 minutes by foot, but rent a car is cheap and bus line passing close enough so thats not a problem.

I recommend this hotel with whole my heart, we promised that we will come back some day, we enjoyed it so much.

Thank you Odyssia !

Room Tip: dont take rooms in building where is the reception, first we got the room above the entrance and it was not renewed, later we asked to change a room and 2 others was offered to us, they are very kind - if you dont like the room ask them for another one...

For the money we paid I thought this hotel was very good. The room we stayed in wasn't big but it was clean and very adequate for our base to explore the local area. We liked that we were able to walk into Rethymnon which took about 30-40 mins.
What really makes this hotel stand out is the friendliness of the staff. Everyone was very helpful, giving us advice about what to do and see and on the day we were checking out they let us stay in our room until our departure at 5pm. We loved the bar staff, who looked after us very well.
The hotel facilities are excellent and we loved it's location right on the beach. The only part we were disappointed in was the food which we found a little tasteless and boring.

Room adequate for us as a couple although had to limbo dance into bathroom as the sink was too big behind the door!!

Otherwise good position, close to beach with nice clean pool. Regular 15 min bus ride into Rethymon.

Downsides were the too small restaurant and which made meal times a nerve racking experience on occasions . Usually began with having to queue to get a table in the restaurant on a regular basis, followed by the regular bun fight queue to get the help yourself food. Was totally fed up with this by end of holiday. Some staff friendly but not wishing to make alot of contact with holidaymakers and showing a ship them in and ship out attitude.

Room Tip: Rooms clean

We arrived late so only in the morning we realized that our view was straight to a wall. We asked for a change and were instantly given new room facing the garden. Seems like about half of rooms are badly positioned - either they face the wall, are to close to each other or half-burried under ground and with little privacy.
The equipment of the room is basic, I would say 2 star rank with addition of fridge, TV and hairdryer. TV was put in such a possition that it was imposiible to watch it from beds. Mattresses were a bit worn out. Bathroom was very basic although everything working fine. There were no shampoos and bad foams in little bottles just a soap dispenser.
The food was rather basic, no fruit except canned peaches for breakfast, same cheap cake every day, awfull juice, in fact it was syrup. Plus points for fresh salads for dinner, but too many basic food - pasta, rice, potatoes and again limited selection of sweets, every day yello and some kind of white or pink sugar foam. From time to time there were greek dishes: bureki, musaka, baklavas.
It seems to me that owners are economizing whereever possible and that their efforts are to achieve and retain 3 stars not to satisfy guests.
Plus points for staff, receptionists are very helpfull, execept for a bit arogant guy. You can buy bus tickets for the city at the reception desk (it is impossible to buy them on bus) and to rent a car (we really got great deal from Minoian Rental car).
The location of the hotel is fine, staright on the beach, no road between. The promenade road to Rethymno starts only short away, you can walk to the city, it is about 3 km, but for our child even that was too much so we were using bus (1 Euro, children free). Although the promenade runs all the way along the beach, it is rather dull, all the way hotels, taverns, markets. But it was good for morning running.
Within walking distance there is nice nature spot - Myli gorge.
The beach is nice, fine sand with some stones in the edge of the sea. The pool and children's pool is nice enough, except there are too little sun beds. After unpolite guest made all day reservations with towels it was impossible to find free sun bed.
The childeren playground is limited to a house/slide on the beach and the playground with plastic house/slide and balls in the recreational room. It provided little amusement to our three old so from time to time we slipped into neighbouring hotel and joined the Neckermann's kids klub.
Another plus for entertainment, greek night was performed by excellent musicians and dancers, magician show was fine and great was also 2-man band playing greek and international evergreens.
Due to late departure we asked if we can extend our stay after check out time. Since our room was already booked, we vere given new room, which was even more basic - probably used only for such exceptions, but it was worth spending 15 Euros.
The hotel is located in the outskirts of Rethymno, so it comes with all downgrades of the city like crush, immigrants, bad architecture, people not so open...

Room Tip: If not satisified ask for change of the room.

3* rather than 4*, but still a nice clean, pleasant hotel. Nice food, nice staff, very relaxed hotel with a lovely location on the beach. Rethymno is 15 mins away and a well worth seeing. I would certainly recommend this hotel.
