“Great place for family holidays”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

We spent four weeks, and I found all enthusiastic comments justified.So actually, there's nothing more to add. Be aware that either a car or a bicycle is extremely useful, both can be rented for a reasonable price in Georgioupolis.

Room Tip: Some rooms are facing the street, try to avoid them.

Had a week at this hotel last week. It is in the middle of an olive grove with a mountain range close by(car needed). It's lovely and peaceful and very attractive. The "cleanliness" of the spacious rooms ,the premises and the swimming pool area was excellent. The personal oriented service of the personel was remarkable. You get real value for your money. The limited breakfast buffet was OK but the diner was not what we expected. Despite we had booked half board we only had diner three times in the hotel due to a lack of variety and a limited buffet. There a lot of better options in the wider environment(Georgioupolis, Rethymnon,..).

We arrived early evening after an adrenalin pumping drive from Fragokastelo across the mountain road - brilliant! We did have a little difficulty finding the hotel but once there received a very warm welcome. Our room was huge and very comfortable. We had a relaxing swim in the pool (only 2 other people in it) and then to the bar for some great cocktails recommended by the barman who was quite a character! A nice dinner and wine to end a great day.

Breakfast was wide ranging and reflected the tastes of the Dutch & German guests there. We asked about local points of interest and we told we MUST walk out into the sea to the Chapel of Saint Nicholas (which we did - well worth visiting but wear non-slip shoes and no socks as a perfectly calm sea can suddenly send in a wave to, momentarily, cover the causeway). Reluctantly, we had to leave for Rethimnou but, on settling the bill, were presented with a small bottle of olive oil pressed from the trees surrounding the hotel. Will definitely stay there again.

Okay, this hotel is ideal if you don't want to fight for sunbeds, taste horrible food and put up with loads of screaming kids.
We stayed last week and had a wonderful time, yes 95% of the guests were German, but that wasn't a problem they were all very nice people, and the few children there were very well behaved. The food is excellent, although the Lunchtime menu is quite limited, however after a hearty breakfast and a superb evening meal this didn't reall cause any problems. The main shops, bars etc are a good mile away so if you wish to leave the hotel car hire is advisable.

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and this is a shining example of ahopw a hotel should be run. More suited to the over 40's without children as there is little to do apart from rest, eat and drink.

Worth every penny.

Room Tip: We asked for a Pool View and had a lovely room right over the pool. A/C is 7 euros a night or 42 eu...

We stayed for two weeks at Hotel Vardis Olive Garden in Asproulianos, near Georgioupolis. Highly recommended! We had a great time: the rooms, the service, the swimmingpool and the restaurant with local ,homemade food are super and so is the hospitality: thank you Sophia. We strongly advise to rent a car during your stay to do some splendid trips sites and to reach the better beaches. Pelekanos Beach along the main road, just 3 km. to the east of the hotel is perfect, tranquil and easy going: thank you Janos and Vaso.

Had a week at this hotel very recently. It's a little off the beaten track set in the middle of an olive grove with a mountain range close by. It's lovely and peaceful and very attractive - our room opened onto the olive grove and the view was lovely; it also smells divine. The place is just the right size and very well run. It's spotlessly clean and very comfortable with one exception which is the PILLOWS - they were terrible (to an English visitor!) being small and hard and very uncomfortable. Also, it would have been great to have a mosquito screen across the door to the terrace so that the insects were kept out at night - I got bitten to death, but that always happens to me. The pool are is lovely, with two good pools - one for adults, one for children. The restaurant is on a terrace with lovely views of the mountain range - having breakfast and dinner there was just fabulous. There's a terrace bar and a small shop for basics (all the rooms have a fridge and small kitchenette area although we could never make a cup of tea as we couldn't get the water to boil!). All the staff were helpful and friendly and the facilities are very good. It's a short walk into the nearest village and about a kilometre to the beach which was beautiful - very long and sandy and safe with some busy 'family' areas and other much quieter parts. We didn't have a car and didn't find we really needed one as we walked everywhere and on the day we went to Chania we got the bus which was pretty easy. I would thoroughly recommend this place and would definitely go back. A nice little touch was that we were each given a bottle of olive oil made from the olives of the estate.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor overlooking the olive grove, so away from the pool and bar area which wa...

Our room was large, with a bath, a fridge and prefectly lokated. and clean. In the two weeks we were there,they changed the sheets and towels 4 times.

The restaurant for the breakfast and the dinner is lokated near the pool with a vieuw to the mountains. At the bar there's free WIFI and there's a very relaxed atmosphere. Prices and quality are ok for drinks and food.

I recommend a car or at least a bicycle, otherwise you have to walk about 2 km to the beach. The island has enough possibilities to discover, for that you'll need a car.

All the people who are working at this hotel are friendly and helpfull.

So when you're looking for a quiet hotel, friendly people, clean rooms, clean surroundings and small prices, this is the hotel to be!

Room Tip: Large, clean room
