I couldnt have wished for a more perfect hotel. Situated in the pleasant resort of Platanes (a short €8 taxi ride from Rethymno), a 3 mins walk from the beach and opposite a great Taverna...Ariadne was simply superb. The pool area is really attractive with vines and pink flowers growing up the walls. The rooms were great and very clean...

We stayed at Ariadne between 21/07/16 and 28/07/16 and we had a wonderful time. The hotel is near the beach. Very clean rooms and good breakfast. The hotel has a swimming pool which was a very good alternative for us in the afternoons. The staff was very friendly, very helpful and everybody was smiling. They did the best they could...

Lovely owner who keeps his beach clean and tidy. He also has lovely clean toilets beside his beachbar.) The breakfast is really lovely. You get much for your money. Can...

Second time at Ariadne but a very big change. Staff was not so friendly and breakfast also awful. Dirty bathroom and a lot of noise inside the hotel. The old man in the reception try to get extra money from my wife and also not polite behavior. He booked also taxi for us and always took about 30% extra fare
