Stayed here for our honeymoon, this was our first time to Crete. Having visited Corfu and zante this was definitely the best out of the three islands. The hotel is quiet new, modern and stylish. On arrival into the hotel we didn’t have to stand at reception they told us to sit on entering then we was brought freezing cold lavender flannels and a glass of juice which was excellent. Next a porter came and took all of our luggage to the room. The porter also put the aircon on for us which was nice. The room was lovely and very modern with open plan bathroom, rain drop shower, stereo, flat screen TV and fridge with free bottled water. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was so comfy! Breakfast was excellent with everything you could want from the typical full English to croissants, nutella, pancakes, fresh omelettes, freshly squeezed orange juice and so on. The hotel is right on the beach and the sun beds and parasols are free to Aegean pearl residents. The main town rethymnon is around a 40-50 minute walk which we only made the mistake of doing once! It was far too hot to walk into town unless you leave the hotel after 8.30-9pm! But walking back is fine, a nice long walk. I highly recommend getting a taxi which you hop into right outside the hotel door its only 5 Euros and it saves you dripping with sweat by the time you have walked there! Rethymnon is a fantastic little town with all the tradition alley shops which sells some great stuff to the higher end designer shops. There are 100s of restaurants to choose from. Just beware of some that are right on the harbour in which the staff just about drag you in! I would say the hotel is not child friendly they were a few children but not many. The hotel rooms are designed for couples and really anymore that that would be a squeeze. They seems to be a sun bed problem around the pool. The pool area is quiet small and it would not be possible to fit more sun beds around. This wasn’t a problem for us as we like the beach. In the 2nd week the hotel became very busy and sun beds around the pool and the beach were like gold dust. All in all we had a fantastic time at this hotel. It is a 5 start hotel but I have stayed at better 4 stars with more facilities then this hotel. Location is perfect!
