Grecotel El Greco

Hi, we are thinking of booking this hotel for next September and all the very recent reviews are really good, but going back a bit looks a bit iffy (cockroaches in room, blankets with bugs, grotty bathrooms and fixtures and fittings)! Hope this isn't the case now. Would appreciate some recent, honest opinions.

Also, is bottled water provided in the room or is it only available in the restaurants?

Would be grateful for any information, hints, tips etc. before we book.

Many thanks, Sara.

Devizes, United...

Hi there

Well,if the recent reviews are "honest opinions" then it would appear that any previous issues have been addressed. No excuse ever for bed bugs or whatever it was, but you can find cockroaches anywhere in Crete, they will get in anywhere. Having said that, in 20 years of travelling to Greece, I reckon I've seen less than a dozen so I wouldn't worry about it.

Just checked the reviews, it has a total of 282 of which 236 place it as 4 or 5 star rating, not much wrong there by the looks of it

That hotel is considered to be one of Rethymnon's best. It is a chain of about 4 hotels in Rethymnon and many more all over Greece.

I find hard to belive bad reviews of them in matters of cleaningness of the rooms, unless it is an exaduration
