My wife and I wanted a special holiday for our Pearl wedding anniversary (30 yrs.), so we paid a little more for the sea view and the extras. This hotel came through with the goods, fresh flowers, sweets and a bottle of bubbly greeted us on our arrival at the room. A la carte meals every night and a special...

We have recently returned from 2 weeks in Rethymno, after getting married in Adele at agreco farm estate. We choose the Porto rethymno as our hotel as it was 5 star all inclusive.

We had booked a garden room which doesn't exist. instead we over looked a road with building works. We asked to be moved but the hotel was full and it wasn't an option. The Thomson brochure says 500mtrs from the town but it very much a city hotel with all the city sounds associated with the city including lots of...

Just got back from a week in this hotel. The location is wonderful. Just a 10 minute stroll to the Old Town but the hotel is across the road from the beach which is wonderful. The location was the key for me, I wanted easy access to Rethymnon in the evening but a beach for the day time. I wasn't...

The staff are great the location excellent. The food is goods and the drinks prices high but hey the supermarket is over the road and the fridge keeps the beer cold...

Our first visit to Crete and Rethmyno . We really enjoyed two-weeks in a great hotel and lovely resort. We’d booked a Standard Room with a “Garden View”. No garden view, as our fifth-floor room (512) overlooked the street at the back of the hotel. Directly opposite were private apartments with colourful balconies decked out with plants (maybe that was...

We had a fantastic room, it was enormous and very clean. Sadly it was next to the air conditioning unit for the whole hotel and got quite noisy at night, but that was balanced by the fact that it was one of the larger rooms and had a huge balcony as we stayed 10 days we got used to it...

Since I stayed here six years ago the hotel has changed hands and has gone from 4* to 5*. Built in the 1990's it occupies a corner site in the town and across the road from the beach. With roads on three sides, noise is inevitable. Because of its small footprint and six storeys, both swimming times spend most of...
