“Crete is the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

We spent 11 days at the Aloe apartments in Rethymno, and come beck just a few days ago. It was a wonderful holiday! Rethimno is beautiful and I strongly recommended it for your base on Crete. There are some very interesting things to see, the old town and the Fortress are only 15 minutes away. You have a nice, well organized sandy beach at your doorstep. There are a lot of great restaurants and tavernas around (I recommend Di Neapoli pizza place a block away, and Fat Snail just across the street. Try local cousin, it's something special!) Also, Rethymno is on excellent position for cruising around the island, and even to go for a one – day trip to Santorini.
The apartment we rented (302) was great, with lot of space, a small but sufficient kitchen, very clean and well maintained. We had two large balconies (with sun only in the morning) and a AC in every room. We use it for three persons, and it was cheap. For four, it's a bargain! The manager, Lefteris, is really very nice, always helpful and ready to answer any question. Crete is something different, go and see, you won’t regret!

We’ve stayed at Aloe apts and we are confident to recommend this place. The apts are very spacious and the service of the manager Lefteris is excellent. The location is what you need for beach holidays or to discover the old town and the harbor. Also the parking next door to the property is very handy for people having a car. For sure we will use it again for our next visit to Rethymnon. Good value for money.

The best place!! I didn't see so kind manager of the hotel ever. The conditions of living are great - very spacious apartments with the balcony. The flat is fully equipped. What's the most important, the beach is one minute from the hotel. I truly recommend it. I had a great time there!

We stayed at Aloe in May 2011. One of the most memorable things about Aloe was the owner/manager, Leftarios. He did everything he could to make our stay as pleasant and easy as possible. This included pick up/drop off from the bus station, giving helpful advice about the area, and lending his laptop and internet to us. Leftarios spoke English extremely well, which was also an added bonus.

The hotel is located within a couple of minutes walk to the water and about 10-15 minutes walk to town. The location is great. There are a number of supermarkets nearby as well as a wide variety of restaurants and other eating places. Make sure you take a good walk along the beachside and offstreets as you will find a number of cheap places to dine.

As for the hotel, the room itself was exceptionally clean and self-contained with all basic kitchen requirements. The balcony offered a great seaview when standing, but a pleasant outdoor place to relax otherwise. The only noticeable thing was the need to switch the hot water on and off each day, however being environmentally-conscious, we were happy to do this.

Value for money was great and we would stay here again. Thanks Leftarios!

We had a very warm welcome to the spotless Aloe Apartments. The location is a minute from the sea, of which we had a side view from our spacious balcony. The apartment was roomy, with good sound-proofing (although it's not a particularly noisy spot). The (free) aircon was a bonus at night. We utilised the small kitchenette which was equipped with a hob and fridge (small freezer box). There is a lift for anyone who dislikes/struggles with a lot of stairs.

The apartments are a fifteen minute stroll to the old town, passing shops/bars/tavernas along the sea-front. The beach is clean, has lifeguards, and there are plenty of sunbeds. If you don't want a sunbed, you can walk along to the right for a few minutes to a small rock-backed area, which was quieter.

The cleaner was friendly and accommodating and does a great job.

Lefteris, the Manager is very hospitable and helpful, and the apartments are a real credit to him. Highly recommended and great value. Many thanks again, Lefti!

So, hey! I've stayed in Aloe apartments while living in Rethymno for two months. It was a really nice place. At first, it's not far away from the centre. To get there you can go on the sea side all the way and get a beautiful view. The second,this place is close to the beach, so you can easily go to swim or listen the sea. At third, streets nearby are sillent, so you always can rest or work without any distraction. There are several shops near the apartments and the bus stop is not far away too. Finally, rooms are big enough and has everything for shorter or longer stay. So, for those who are staying in Rathymno, have a nice time there!
