Staff are excellent, very warm welcoming and helpful. Those on reception, by beach, at restaurants, entertainers and the cleaners were great, exceptional service. Rooms are nice, very comfortable clean and beautifully designed (but shower screens could be longer). Breakfast is tasty and varied. Mountain tea and Cretan food were lovely. Beach is ok, but very rocky. Beach by rethymnon town is better. Can see snow capped mountains from beach. Hotel is nice for families. Hotel was full of lots of well-heeled families with children. Area around hotel is quiet.
Mythos restaurant near hotel is nice, great dakos and nice decor, full of flowers. Bus to town stops right outside hotel. Some wonderful restaurants in the old town with great food and service and gorgeous decor. Rethymnon itself is well worth a visit; full of character, it’s charming, arty, friendly and relaxed. Nice boutiques and shops too.
