We have visited the Bueno about 6 times over a 20 year period and have always found it to be a home from home. The Family that run it are wonderful, always helpful and chatty no matter what the hour of the day. The apartments are large and well equipped with satellite TV and aircon as standard. Only 50m from...

Had a lovely stay at this hotel last week. Room cleaned everyday and we found everything in the hotel lovely and clean. Breakfast was fantastic, meat, cheese, tomatoes, cucumber plus omelette or fried eggs and sausage or bacon the hot food alternated each day. Bread, cakes and fruit all constantly replenished by the lovely Candy who dashed around all morning...

Stayed in this area on Crete many times but this was our first stay in this hotel. Location perfect - off the main street so Supermarket and lots of restaurants within easy walking distance. Great bar with very good staff - especially Eliani. Also across the road our new favourite restaurant 'Finikas' - good food and very good wine. Had...

This hotel has a bar outside which is very welcoming with good service. Great atmosphere with lots of different nationalities mixing together and always it was great and friendly. The hotel is part of a group owned by the same family in the same road. Rooms are clean and welcoming.

Our apartment (in the older part of the hotel) was very basic and very dated. The room was "cleaned" every day except Sundays. The standard of cleaning was very poor - I think the balcony which was covered in leaves and flowers off the trees saw a brush once in two weeks we were there. The air con and safe...

We stayed here for the week and really enjoyed our stay. The room was basic but clean and perfect for using as a base. The air-con and safe worked well, though both cost extra (not expensive really and well worth the extra cost). The staff are really welcoming, friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to the Plantanias shops, bars...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a large beautiful garden, full of trees and flowers, BUENO is only 150m from the wonderful Platanes sandy beach, only 4 km from the center of Rethymno city. Many rest and play areas for the guests, especially for the kids, because they can play free and safe, away from the traffic. We are off the main road, enclosed entirely by our private property, thus ideal for younger children and quiet for the older folks. ... more   less
