This hotel is everything we could have expected and more. Travelled 21-05/28-05/13 with a young family in tow. The Hotel is only three years old and is spotless and all the rooms have excellent views of Rethymnon. With only approximately 40 rooms I don't expect the hotel ever gets to over crowded.
Yes there is a little bit of a steep hill to walk back up from Rethymnon town but I found it to be a nice little walk that takes no more than 15 mins or so which I rewarded myself with a cold beer at the top. If you have done you research before you travel then you know this hotel is a little out of town but I found it to be nice and quiet which is what we wanted as a family. The pool was nice and clean again with excellent views. Food was more than adequate with continental style breakfast and a variety of evening meals (Buffet style also). We were on a HB basis. Drinks at the hotel are also very reasonably priced.
My only issue with the hotel was the extra cost for things that I would be expected to be included in the price of the holiday. I.E Air conditioning/Safe in the room and fridge which if you were to have all three would add an extra £75 to the cost of your stay for a week. We did'nt feel that we needed any of these and more than coped.
Top tip is to shop around, we happened to bump into a lone english female traveller during our stay whom paid £600 for 3 weeks half board/flights/transfers (Bargain). Without a shadow of a doubt I would visit this hotel again!!!
