We stayed for 6 nights, traveling with friends who also booked through RCI, but stayed at the Leoniki Residence instead. The rooms were comparable and nice, and the grounds of the connected complexes are well-maintained. However, we received no attention from the staff, who checked on our friends several times during their stay. We had a car, but you can... More

Hotel is in a great location with great facilities. Had a 1 bed apartment which had plenty of space for 2 adults. Bathroom was large and clean also. Room was cleaned everyday (apart from Sunday but we arrived on Sunday so wasn't a problem). Hotel has three pools but we only went to the main pool and long pool, both... More

There are 4 swimming pools which are well maintained, as are the grounds and buildings of the hotel. The rooms are cleaned and serviced regularly by the dedicated staff. Breakfast is very relaxed and... More

Despite the fact that we did not use the restaurant facilities the place... More

There are two hotels at this location, the leoniki and the grand leoniki. . We stayed at the grand leoniki. I would call this the poor relation, you use the reception at the leoniki, the pool bar was not open at our location, we had a smaller pool. Having said that I think we had the better deal.

Everything was just perfect! We got room to the pool. They even got me gluten free bread for breakfast. You can get to Rethymnon city and back by bus which goes every 30 minutes. But there is plenty good restaurants also close to hotel. I could recommend this everybody.

If you want a week on Crete, this is a nice place. It was a good trade. A car is helpful from either airport and for easy coming and going. But you can get there by cab and take day trips on or off the island. Nice beach is close too. However, one complaint was a day trip arranged through... More
