We stayed in the Tholos Luxury suite, which consisted of a large living room with 50"LCD tv with home entertainment system and DSTV, a large kitchen, a large bathroom with tub and a very large & cosy bedroom with king size bed, a round jacuzzi tub and its own 40" DSTV .
The service was excellent. Daily the appartment was serviced including doing all dishes (we never touched the dishwasher), every 2 days new linnen on the beds, bathrobes, sumptuous breakfast served on the terrace (extra optional) and all we wanted to have or know in between.
The level of service, maintenance and comfort is very far up from your average greek studio appartment on the beach. The buildings are original, nicely restored and not at all similar to the concrete grubbyness found on the tourst resorts.
The location is in a village 8 km from the sea. This is a plus and a down, as a car is essential. There are some local tavernas, for more excuisit dining you have to go to Rethymno. Outside the season, it can be a little quiet.
The pool is not very large and lacks roman stairs. It is 1.60m deep
