“Good hotel for a visit of rethymnon and creta by car.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2006

We stayed there with 4 persons in 2 Appartements. The hotel is located direct to the beach an not far from the beach avenue to the city rethymnon.
The hotel is 200 meter back from the main street an therefore quiete.
Rooms are partly bigger than expected. Appartements have a little kitchen. All is daily refreshed.
Especiality the staff is friendly and very helpfull. Two ladies (Marianne and Eva) speak english, german, greek and other languages. They have open ears for all questions guests may have.
Childrens are welcome and they will find special playgrounds.
A stay there for two or three weeks are o.k.
There are many shops, restaurands, bars etc around.

The Dimitrios Village Hotel is located east of Rethymnon (5-10 minutes by car) right on the sandy beach. I would not recommend this place for the elderly or tourists with small children, though, as the sea is almost always rough and becomes deep very quickly, with large pebbles near the beach.
Our two-level apartment had two rooms: a tiny bedroom and a sitting-room with two beds. We had en-suite facilities on both levels, with a jacuzzi on the lower floor and a very small shower and toilet on the upper floor. Although the bedroom had a door, I would not call it a room as instead of a wall we had sort of a screen. We had air-conditioning on both levels but had difficulty using ours for fear of catching a cold. It is better to stay in a one-level two-room apartment, which is cheaper, but these differ in size and some of them are on the basement floor, while others are in the attic, so try to avoid both.
The maid service was OK, but they did not clean the rooms on Sunday. The staff were not very friedly (except a German girl called Eva) but quite helpful. The food ( buffet at breakfast and dinner ) was the same every day, nothing special, so we preferred restaurants in the evening and sometimes cooked ourselves in the daytime. To buy food it is better to use a local shop across the road, which is cheaper than the nearest ones.
The hotel provides very modest sports facilities (beach volleyball and table tennis) and a small playground for kids. There are two tiny swimming pools but they were always overcrowded and smelled of chemicals.
To explore the island we rented a car (through the Internet, which is cheaper ) and enjoyed ouselves. It is better to have something like our Citroen C3 which suits Crete perfectly since some roads are really narrow. The road surface is much better than we expected and the traffic is not dangerous at all, unless you get somewhere too high in the mountains. Both the road signs and the maps of Crete are mysterious and you can not be sure that you will get where you want.
Next to the Dimitrios Village there is the Olympia Hotel, which is much cheaper but does not seem much worse, so if I was going to spend another 2 weeks in the Rethymnon district, I would choose the Olympia for a change. Another cheap hotel is the Rethymnon Bay but it is located close to the road.
