After reading previous reviews this proved a perfect choice for our second visit to Crete after a 8 year gap. Angela and her staff are very friendly and helpful if you treat with with the respect they deserve ( unlike some of the visitors who can be very rude to staff) They were always happy to assist and enjoyed a daily chat. The facilities and breakfast are excellent and lovely surroundings. The position is great especially if you have a car , as once you figure your way to the hotel they have a very large car park opposite which is really helpful in rethymnon where parking is difficult. you have your pick of walks down the narrow Venetian like streets to find yourself in the hustle and bustle of the city within 10 mins of the residence. The Fortress can be viewed from the 2 residence sun terraces and you are also a couple of mins from the sea where you can pop out to watch the beautiful sunsets each evening. There is a small pool , good for kids or just cooling your feet after a day out . The rooms vary but have the bonus of kitchen facilities . Overall a fantastic holiday with this as a base.
