We stayed at the jo-an beach hotel at the end of August 2006 booked through the internet with JMC on a half board basis. The family consisted of two adults and three children. The appartment we were allocated was spacious and in a good situation. The swimming pool is on the small side, but ideally located close to the beach and friendly beach bar. The beach was predominately shingle with large uneven rock shelves beneath the sea, unlike the very sandy beach in Rethymon.
The Jo-An Beach Hotel is situated in a quiet outskirt, 6km away from Rethymon, but does have some excellent and welcoming bars. Tasos Bar is highly recommended.
All in all we had a good holiday. Here comes the but! The resturant food left a lot to be desired, We couldn't find anything to eat at breakfast or dinner so we ended up eating out all the time. The evening entertainment was fairly non existent so again we had to go out elsewhere.
