“BEAUTIFIL HOTEL AND RESORT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

If you like understated elegance mixed with a modern edge, friendly (not-in-your-face) staff, tasty traditional food and easy access to the sandy beach, then this is the hotel for you. "We loved it" (4 of us) it's all white decor in the main reception area, pool/terrace area and in the hotel suites is stylish, what we particularly liked was the low level lighting in the suite. The location was ideal as it was far enough away from the hubbub of the old town of Rethymnon but easily accessed by either a 30 minute or so stroll along the long promenade or 5 euros each way in a cab (cab station outside the hotel). Rethymnon old town is a joy and full of interest, it's lively full of little shops, taverns and restaurants serving fab fresh food at great prices, eg a 3 course meal for 4 with 4 rounds of drinks and a tip was 130 euros "cheap huh". If you want up to date shopping then that's a few streets behind the hotel.To sum up a great time was had by all and would recommend this hotel and resort.

Room Tip: If you e-mail the hotel and ask for a quiet room(s) (like we did) before going then that is what you...

Recently returned to this hotel for a few days during our trip to Crete and was not disappointed. The staff are just amazing, so friendly and caring, they cannot do enough to make your stay special. The hotel rooms are exceptionally well appointed, with extensive cupboards and shelves to accommodate all your things. Regardless of what some other reviews say, the bathrooms are not entirely open, the toilets all have doors to ensure privacy. The pools are lovely and it's right across the road from a lovely beach which provides loungers and umbrellas for residents. Lovely hotel for an unbelievably reasonable tariff, but it is the staff who make your stay so special. We will definitely be returning again.

First time at Sentido Aegean pearl hotel, really enjoyed our stay. Staff are so welcoming and helpful. You must get involved in the hotels activities; all free of charge. We recommend yoga with Athina, Day Break with Tassos, the nature walk with Ralph and the Rethymnon tour and essential Greek lesson with Alexandra. Food was great, but there are loads of places to eat outside of the hotel too. Taxis are 5 euros into town, busses are 1 euro into town, but we just walked into town every time. The beach is kept beautifully clean and loungers are free to use with your pass. Overall a fantastic holiday and we'd love to go back!!!

Me and my girlfriend spent 3 nights in the last weekend. From the moment we entered the hotel we had a good feeling which stayed for the resf if the vecation. The staff were very nice and alwats helped with a smile, the rooms are beautiful and gives a nice, calm feeling. The pool is also very clean and you can enjoy the sun almost all day long.
The hotel in not really in the center and you need to walk about 20 minutes to get there. We also had a few problems with our key card, but the problem was fixed immidietly. Besidea that, everything was perfectand we will be more than happy to return some day.

We have just returned from 10 days at this wonderful beach front hotel in Rethymnon, Western Crete. I can't believe the last critical review I have just read, unbelievable. This hotel is a 5 star in every way. Comfortable modernised rooms and bathrooms, immaculately clean and the food is of the highest standard we have experienced this side of a cruise ship! As for no wi-fi in the rooms expressed in great horror in another review, there is wired internet in the rooms plus wi-fi in the lobby - no great problem for most people. We found all the staff from the managers to the maids smiley and welcoming, and certainly never experienced rude staff at all from anyone on any day. The restaurant staff are hard working, polite and delightful. The restaurant manager, Michalis, never seemed to be off duty and could not do enough for you including keeping the soup extra hot for me! He will laugh if he reads this. Then there is the wine waitress Varvara, all smiles and helpfulness. Agelika who constantly replenishes the vast choice of main dishes at dinner and Zabia who taught us some greek when serving us! The main reception staff are also extremely helpful and polite and speak German, English and French in equal measures! We found the entertainment to be just enough with some Greek dancing and some belly dancing; and the hotel also puts on things like guided walks and stops in bars free of charge - no complaints there then! The rooms are modern and the beds most comfortable. I would not say they are particulary small, just right. The bathrooms are an "acquired taste" in that there is no dividing wall from the room but there is a perfectly adequate door on the toilet and the shower which is the "rainforest" type and was the best we have experienced in Greece. The location is excellent as it is on the outskirts of the old town and a taxi will take you there for 5 euros or you can walk it in about 40 mins, it's 2 kilometres so not right in the thick of things if you like peace and quiet. We did notice some building noise next to the sister hotel, the Pearl Beach the day we left so that might be a problem but did not affect us in the Aegean Pearl. Some balconies face each other which might be off-putting is you like absolute privacy but hey, everyone's on holiday! There were a handful of children around but I would say it is more suited to adults as there is not much there for children as such, no playground or kids clubs etc; and the pool was a little small but with the beach just over the road we did not find that a problem. Overall a very clean, comfortable hotel with great staff and fantastic food. Would we go back? Most definitely!

Room Tip: You could ask for a balcony that does not face others and some are shaded for most of the day, but f...

The hotel is small, the rooms are very small. The WC are very small, the bathroom is opend and there is no door, it's an open space room.
The team is very rude.
No air conditioner, it's a central air conditioner, so when we wanted to switch to cold they said "sorry you can't". There is no connection between the pictures to the reality. No wifi at the rooms!! Don't waste your time and money.

Thank you for sharing your opinion with us.
In our hotel description you can inform yourself about the size of the hotel and see photos.
We have 110 rooms and the normal standard rooms are 25 m2 big.
Most of them have an open bathroom integrated in the room, but we also have nice rooms with a separated closed bathroom.
The reception staff does always their utmost to meet the needs and to satisfy our guests, room change upon availability, included.
The period you visit us, at the beginning of the season, the weather was cold in the evenings so as the A/C it is central system, was put on heating.
Moreover, we like to mention that the score of our service in holiday check is 5.7 of 6 and in trip advisor 4.5.

Best regards
