Stayed at this hotel with my wife (we are about 50 years old) in mid-July 2019 ("Taz Tour"). There were no problems with the transfer at the airport, we were met, seated, delivered by a comfortable minibus. Due to early arrival at the hotel were 3-4 hours before check-in. We left our things, went to have breakfast, then lay down in the spacious foyer, deserted in the morning. … More ▾ Stayed at this hotel with my wife (we are about 50 years old) in mid-July 2019 ("Taz Tour").
There were no problems with the transfer at the airport, we were met, seated, delivered by a comfortable minibus.
Due to early arrival at the hotel were 3-4 hours before check-in.
We left our things, went to have breakfast, then lay down in the spacious foyer, deserted in the morning. I even fell asleep.
A family from Russia flew in with us (parents with an adult daughter), they were in Rethymnon for the second time, they chose the same hotel again, they were in it for the first time.
In my opinion, this is the best hotel in Rethymno itself.
We had the opportunity to choose another one outside the city, but we chose this one and did not regret it - a very good location, professional and friendly staff, good food (we took breakfast with dinner).
The rooms are not the most modern, but a comfortable bed, good air conditioning with Daikin ventilation - this is important for comfort.
As usual - fridge, kettle, bathrobes and slippers.
Plumbing is not the newest, but it did not bother, everything worked properly and did not leak. I was a little surprised by the music center with a radio and for CDs... Perhaps, this is generally superfluous there and looks already a little old.
The hotel is not noisy at all, but in the evening there is a cultural program until 22.00. It was entirely appropriate.
Yoga exercises on the beach in the morning.
The beach, despite the location "across the road" did not create any problems, except for a couple of days when the sea was stormy and the lifeguards recommended to go swimming a little to the side, because. it is in this place that sometimes there is a "reverse flow"... Rescuers do their job very conscientiously.
They were also pleased with the "pouring show" on the beach for their tourists (once a day, the chef and his retinue treated tourists to some drink and snack in a national or other style - raki, tequila, cocktails, etc. ). Excellent beds.
The city attractions are within easy reach - they are within walking distance after dinner, even closer.
Thanks to the hotel, I liked Crete, the climate, the sea and the people!
They took an excursion to Santorini from the tour operator, they did not regret it, although they are not cheap (it will not be cheaper to take "off the street", if you take into account lunch on the island).
The staff was attentive even after our check out : ))
Interested in r = our impressions. This is probably good.
Everything calmed down and now there are "pure emotions and impressions. "
Thanks for the rest!

Booked through Tez Tour. All documents received, including vouchers (booking). Upon arrival at the airport, the child and I were confronted with the fact that we were being taken to a hotel 3 km away. from the village of Hersonissos instead of the hotel, 7 minutes walk from the center of Rethymnon. In response to indignation and a demand to be taken to Rethymnon, they sent me, they said to go where they were taking me or stay at the airport. … More ▾ Booked through Tez Tour.

In response to indignation and a demand to be taken to Rethymnon, they sent me, they said to go where they were taking me or stay at the airport. I was traveling with a child, so I could not stay at the airport. Throughout the rest, she demanded relocation to Rethymnon, albeit to a different hotel and even with a decrease in stardom. Was sent by Tez Tour. As a result, instead of rest, I got hassle and a ruined vacation.
Be vigilant when choosing a hotel and tour operator!

So my husband and I were lucky enough to spend our big anniversary in this hotel and on this wonderful island. It was great. In the evenings we walked around the neighborhood.

In the evenings we walked around the neighborhood. We lived in one of the most luxurious hotels, lay on a huge beach, admired the sunsets on the sea. We flew on tour with the Anex tour. Everything was great. We got to the hotel quickly, especially since it is located right in the center of Rethymnon. Therefore, we managed to see Greece itself from the inside. We walked a lot around the city. The streets are so picturesque and beautiful, the people are charismatic. It's such a charming atmosphere! Ancient, medieval buildings, the city port - I was just in love with these places. The trip was truly romantic. And what a lively nightlife there - wow! At the hotel, we also had indescribable beauty. The architecture is clearly thought out, it seems that the hotel was built by a real genius. Brightened up our weekdays and hotel staff. We became friends with them. , Everyone liked this hotel: both our age, and the kids and the elderly. Entertainment was provided for everyone. People really left there happy and rested. This is what true relaxation means. When you want to go back there again, when you remember with a smile. Separately, I note the food. We have never eaten such delicious food on any trip. Salads are unusual, hot exclusive. And what a delicious wine. . The sea just captivated us. We just got into a pleasant season. The sea is warm and gentle. The sun is baking. Evenings are warm

Were at the hotel in August 2012. Claimed 5 stars loudly. My rating is 3 for the hotel and the service of the hotel. Bought a standard room with a sea view. Dali with a side view of the sea (more precisely, the children's pool). To the indignation at the reception, they answered that this room has a sea view and the rooms with a direct sea view are of a different category and stand differently. … More ▾ Were at the hotel in August 2012. Claimed 5 stars loudly. My rating is 3 for the hotel and the service of the hotel.
Bought a standard room with a sea view. Dali with a side view of the sea (more precisely, the children's pool). To the indignation at the reception, they answered that this room has a sea view and the rooms with a direct sea view are of a different category and stand differently. True, they offered another room to look at, it turned out to be the same side view only from the other side, I didn’t like the room, the floor at the entrance to the balcony fell through and, in order to level it, they laid several layers of carpet or something else. In the room, the remote control from the TV without batteries and the back cover is at the reception. There is nothing to open a bottle of wine in the room and again at the reception.
The hotel needs renovation for a long time. The carpet in the room and along the corridors is old and dirty in places. The area of ​ ​ the hotel is very small, there is no green grass like in Turkey.
There are two pools, one for children and another for adults, 1.20 m deep and a very small person for 10. True, it is two more days of a mile, they drained the water and swept a mile.
Took breakfast and dinner. Breakfast - buffet everything was enough even freshly squeezed juice to yourself Dawis - normal, Dinner - buffet and you can order from the menu (three dishes to choose from). Wine for a fee from 22 euros per bottle and mineral water with gas 4 euros. Wine was most often lied to in stores when both water and wine were walking (cheaper by a lot).
The sea is super wide beach umbrellas and sun loungers without a fee (we did not pay) although they went and collected money but not from the hotel. The beach is nearby, you need to go uphill and you are already on the sand.
Would not recommend to a friend, neighbor or colleague.

The hotel is very good!!! ) We rested as two young couples, and since we simply don’t pay attention to some household trifles, we got great pleasure! ) There really isn’t much to do with children there, it will be boring for children . . But who loves urban hotels and the first line of the beach, and so that everything is nearby - the best hotel! ))) As they say, Russians are mostly settled on the first floor, but foreigners also live there) The food is excellent, they took breakfast-dinner, everything is very tasty and varied, I was especially pleased with free fresh juices for breakfast) The beach is amazing, the sea is a fairy tale! )) There is a Russian-speaking girl Marina, very attentive, like all the staff. … More ▾ The hotel is very good!!! ) We rested as two young couples, and since we simply don’t pay attention to some household trifles, we got great pleasure! ) There really isn’t much to do with children there, it will be boring for children . .

Rested from 16 to 30 July 2012. The island is just magical! It was very interesting to walk around the area in the evening, quite cozy, a lot of entertainment in Rethymno. The hotel itself is in excellent condition, but like all with its shortcomings. I personally did not like one thing, but this is a rather subjective opinion - a very small restaurant room. … More ▾ Rested from 16 to 30 July 2012. The island is just magical!

Nevertheless, the food here is simply delicious, there is always a wide variety on the tables, both at breakfast and at dinner. The service in the restaurant is also good, the waiters are efficient, always in a hurry to serve. In general, all the staff in the hotel are responsible and friendly. The room is cleaned daily, towels and sheets are also changed. By the way, everything in the room is very decent, bed, bathroom, balcony, all appliances work properly, there is a hair dryer))) The combination of price and quality of the hotel is good, so I advise!

Spent a week with my wife at the beginning of June in this hotel. The hotel was booked from the tour operator Mouzenidis (we read a lot of good reviews on the Internet, Unitours said that they specialize in Greece, so they decided to trust the professionals). We give the hotel a solid 5. The Greeks are very friendly people, the staff is polite and positive towards our tourists, there are Russian speakers. … More ▾ Spent a week with my wife at the beginning of June in this hotel.

Excellent cuisine, gorgeous sea and beach, well-developed infrastructure outside the hotel. We went on our own to old Rethymnon, a very colorful place and not far from the hotel. As for the fact that the hotel is included in the TOP 100 hotels in the world - I don’t know, I haven’t seen such information, and therefore I didn’t get hung up on whether the hotel deserves to be on this list or not.

The hotel is excellent. Located in Rethymno itself, 5 minutes walk from the pedestrian area. Very central, full of shops and cafes around. Everything is on the level.

Everything is on the level. Room, food, cleaning, nothing to complain about.
1st line, private beach across the road - embankment (the road is calm with a limit of 30 km / h). Wifi internet caught even on the beach.
The sea was stormy for a week, because of this the water was very muddy (sand rose from the bottom). We took a car and drove for 1 day to the south coast (Rethymno - on the north). The water there (in the Libyan Sea) is colder - currents, but much cleaner - absolutely transparent. But there seems to be less infrastructure and hotels there.

Without a doubt we will visit this hotel again. Only already most likely we will take only breakfast, and not half board. Too many temptations to overeat at dinner))

The first 2 days, by the way, we lived in another hotel of the same chain - Aquilla Rethymno Beach, everything is also super, the kitchen is even more luxurious. Only it is already located further away, you can’t get to the center without a car / bus.
This hotel already has a large private territory, ideal for a relaxing holiday and holidays with children.

The hotel is chic! Rested with my beloved in 2007. The staff is attentive and friendly! Beautiful and comfortable rooms, LCD TV and microsystem in the room, always clean and comfortable (cleaning twice a day), beachy and clean, a minute walk from the hotel. I have been to many European countries - there is something to compare with! I advise you to come, you will not regret it! By the way, they declared the hotel as a "four", but it turned out to be a solid "5"! Everything is great, we still remember! We will definitely return to this hotel! Porto Retymno wait for us!! !. … More ▾ The hotel is chic! Rested with my beloved in 2007. The staff is attentive and friendly!
