Great little hotel
My partner and I stayed for one week with our 5yr old son. Hotel was nice, staff all very friendly, smiley and happy to help. Pool was clean, room was clean apart from under beds. A lot of people seem to go all inclusive at this hotel, we went half board. This meant they use cheap soft drinks so you can't get a coca cola for example. Supermarket is very close though. Would be nice to make the pool bar into a bar you can sit at during the day instead of a serving counter as it is at the moment with table and chair seating only. Bar staff and kitchen staff very friendly. 5 minute walk to the beach, not the nicest of beaches but it was ok. Much better beaches around. 1€ per person to get bus into Rethimno. All in all we had a great stay and would recommend. Our only complaint was our bed was like concrete, our sons bed was better so uck of the draw I guess.

Nice boutique hotel - great location - 5 km from Rethymno. Nice rooms, quiet, helpful staff, amazing food offering. Nice pool area. The hotel does not have it's own beach, but it is 7 minutes walk from the property. Highly recommend.

Well maintained hotel. It's outside of the city proper, but easy to access the city. It was a little noisy, but otherwise no complaints.

Hôtel magnifique superbement décoré avec une incroyable piscine et le buffet pour les repas. Seuls bémols chambre très mal insonorisée j’entendais tout ce qui se passait dans le couloir et la climatisation au dessus de ma tête envoyait des jets d’eau. Il y a très peu de places pour se garer

Familiäre Hotelanlage
Die Hotelanlage ist zwar deutlich kleiner als auf den Fotos,was aber auch als Vorteil gesehen werden kann.Die Zimmer sind sauber und modern eingerichtet, Klimaanlage funktioniert. Die Lobby ist modern gestaltet, auf den Gängen und tw in den Zimmern sind immerwieder Rohre-da wird scheinbar noch etwas renoviert. Die Poolanlage ist top und bietet für die Anzahl der Gäste ausreichend Liegemöglichkeiten auch im Schatten. Im Garten gibt es außerdem ein Beachvolleyball Netz, Dartscheibe, Riesenschach und einen Tischtennistisch zur freien Benutzung. Der Strand ist ca 5min zu Fuß über eine kleine Straße erreichbar. Dort gibt es Liegen zum Mieten, aber auch die Möglichkeit einfach so am Strand zu liegen. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist mehr als ausreichend, man kann drinnen oder draußen genug Plätze finden. Abendessen kann man zb. in einer der 300m entfernten Tavernen oder 5min mit dem Auto entfernt in Rethymnon. Besonders hervorheben möchten wir die freundliche Rezeption und die Möglichkeit am Abreisetag kostenfrei einen Umkleideraum incl Dusche benützen zu können. Super Service, wenn man nicht voller Sand und Salz im Flieger sitzen möchte!
