“Perfection!”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

My husband and I stayed here during off peak tourist season and we couldn't have stayed at a more quaint and charming place. We picked it because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and Avli Lounge did not let us down. From the warm welcome to the amazing rooms (we stayed in the Red room the first couple nights, which was warm and cozy, and then received a complimentary upgrade to the White room, which was spacious and relaxing). Because we were here in the 'winter' it was extremely quiet and we felt like we were the only guests here and were treated like royalty! Johnny (pronounced Yanni) has just taken over running the place and although he was busy trying to improve things, he made sure we were priority. The owner, Katarina, was also extremely friendly and inviting and we felt like family. They were both so attentive to our needs and strived for perfection, which wasn't difficult! The food at the restaurant was amazing...lamb meatballs, homemade pasta with shrimp, yogurt with honey, fresh squeezed orange juice, baklava...every meal was delectable. There were a couple of times we decided to have dessert in our room and they insisted on delivering it to us even though we could've just taken it ourselves. What wonderful service. We highly recommend staying here as you will not be disappointed!! It is a wonderfully charming place run by an extremely helpful and warm staff. We will miss it here and hope to make it back one day...in the meantime, choose this place and we'll be jealous we can't be there, too!

We stayed at the above hotel for nine nights at the end of October 2012 due to the excellent reviews we read on Tripadvisor.

We can confirm that the excellent reviews this hotel recieved were accurate and we would recommend the hotel to anyone. Great breakfasts !

Rethymnon is a wonderful resort whether you use it a base to tur the island or stay there for your whole holiday.

Avli Lounge Apartments are located in the centre of the 'old town' and all the staff are first rate and extremely friendly. They cater to your every need and make your stay special.

As for Tahnasis, Johnny and the owner Katerina who mostly run the estalishment for any requirements you have and we are sure you will not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: All suites are great with Jacuzzi's and all facilities so choose one according to your financial...

My experience at Avli was excellent.
We chose a "lounge Apartment" called "brown penthouse." The room was really nice. All furnished in shades in brown and there was a great attention to every detail.
The room had all the amenities and also a jacuzzi.
The hotel has a beautiful garden where there is the restaurant and is also served the breakfast.
The staff was friendly.
I recommend this hotel because it is very well maintained, there is attention to many details and exotic furnishings .

We had originally booked at Rimondi Estate, however upon arrival, Rimondi Estate had taken the intiative to book us into a room at Avli as the previous hotel guest had an accident and was bed-ridden. We were soon greeted by the very friendly host Thanassis who welcomed us with complimentary drinks and platter. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Avli..it was in a great location, very clean large rooms and bathroom and Thanassis and Johnny were extremely helpful and friendly. To top it off, after I realised I had left a towel bag at Avli and contacted Thanassis, he kindly posted the bag to Sydney! We highly recommend this hotel as it's rare to get such friendly customer service!

All the other reviewers are right about the high quality food, service and rooms. Just to add to that, Avli benefits from a great location. The old town of Rethymno is a great base for making excursions to the rest of the island, the incredible southern beaches, the fantastically-windy gorges and hillside villages. The tiny old streets of the town are charming and bursting with places to eat and shop. Going in autumn is a great idea as it is still warm enough for tshirts but not too crowded.
The hosts of Avli are charming and pay attention to fine detail. The rooms, even the cheapest ones which we stayed in, are well decorated and comfortable. The Candy suites will be even better I am sure by 2013, when they will have been upgraded even further I was told.
Very romantic. Delicious and filling food. Incredible old building with real history and charm, well decorated with a lovely courtyard overflowing with bougainvillea.

We had a great stay over AVLI and I am so happy we chose this hotel! Everything is perfect there, location, people, room and food! The host Thanassis and Johnny were extramly helpful and very very friendly. They are so thoughtful, hospitality and patient, made us feel at home. The owner lady (sorry I forgot her name) is a pleasant person, she is so talented to make everything wonderful, the decoration of the room and restaurant are amazing and the food is so nice with beautiful presentation and not expensive at all! I would definitely recommend anyone planning to go Rethymno to stay with AVLI.

A treasure in Rethymnon. As soon as we arrived we quickly realised this was a special hotel. Amazing food and drink, beautiful rooms and outdoor restaurant. The service and friendliness of the staff was outstanding and they go the extra mile for their guests. We left some clothes in the room and they posted them back to us and treated us to sparkling wine and canapes on our terrace as it was our honeymoon. We would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Crete. We would stay there again.
