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...

Very nice little hotel nearby the beach. Directly at a street but quiet rooms to the yard with a big pool. Very clean, professional cambermaids and fresh towels every day except Sunday. We were a group of 6 including a 3 year old girl and had 2 very nice appartements. Nothing fancy but cosy. Staff very nice and helpful. I...

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

We stayed at the Ariadne for 14 days from June to July this year. When we arrived we were welcomed by very cheerful staff. The setup is excellent with the rooms situated around the pool area.
