8/10 Very good

Service not 5-star level but friendly staff.
Parking: For those of you with rental cars, there is no parking at the hotel and no parking space available in close vicinity either. Closest paid parking is 20 minutes away. Service: Its a mixed bag. Very friendly staff, however we wanted to extend our stay with one night and unfortunately there was a mix up. We eventually solved it, but the inconveniece of discussing the issue with the staff took several hours (and made us uncomfortable). Otherwise very attentive and friendly staff overall.

Great place for great holidays
It's a great location, highly recommend, quite and in the middle of live of this beautiful city Retimno. Great shopping, beautiful long beach with sand and warm water. Beach is just 1 min walk and it's really close, we went swimming in the early morning and late everything for sunset. Beds are good. Room is quite big and you find there everything to dry your swimwear. Only teakettle in the room was missing. Food in the hotel is ok, we had only breakfast, but around there are plenty of taverns, bars, coffeeshops, and supermarkets with fresh fruits and good prices. Next i stayed in Agia Pelagia, it's terrible. Rethymno is really great place for great holidays

1st week
The Reception team were polite and helpful with the new electronic check-in and contactless check out. The service staff in the restaurants were not helpful and didn’t know when the App worked for service. The first day we had to wait for cutlery. The second day the tables has been properly ser-up. The water for the bath was yellow and slow to drain away. The shower and sink water were fine. Whilst there was disinfectant stations throughout there were regularly small bags of rubbish near the elevator.
