I have just returned from a weeks family holiday at this hotel. The hotel is perfectly set on a beautiful beach with amazing views. We had rooms in the main building with sea views which are well worth booking, the rooms are large well furnished with very comfy large beds. Rooms are spotlessly clean and beds were changed 3 times...

This hotel was in an ideal situation for the Rhethymnon old town and the beach. The hotel was very clean, the staff were forever helpful, the facilities were excellent, including the restaurant which had a great ambience along with a complete choice of international style food. Our room was large, well-fitted out, including the bathroom, with a huge bed and...

The hotel is a 5 star and while much of it reflects this, there are a few aspects that don't. The bedroom we had (2nd floor, sea view) was big - we had a 6 foot bed and there was a lot of floor space left so we weren't tripping over bags. They provide lots of hangers and a chest...

A very nice hotell, with an absolutely marvellous breakfast. A pity though that the beds were so hard. We asked for bedmattresses and got that, but it didn't help, because they were so thin. The personell were all very helpful, polite and serviceminded.

Very nice hotel with a absolutely fantastic breakfast. The personel were very friendly and helpful. A pity though that the beds were so hard. We asked for extra bedmatresses and got that, but they were very thin and didn't make any difference.

Cannot fault our hotel. The staff are polite and always have a smile for you. There is a large choice at meal times from the buffet and is always fresh and hot.

We stayed in this hotel from 30th September until 14th October and cannot praise it too highly. The rooms are excellent and it is worth the extra to book a sea view as the hotel is just across the road from a stunning beach, with towels, sunbeds and parasols provided for guests free of charge. The staff - from the...
