“Amazing”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

From the moment you walk through the narrow streets into the Avli oasis of calm and relaxation, you are made to feel part of the family.
The service is second to none the staff are amazingly helpful. you start your day with a relaxed breakfast which is served in the beautiful courtyard restaurant and then explore or chill out in the old town and its fascinating history and relaxed friendly attitude. you will not want the experience to end.

Thank you Avli for a TRUELY amazing experience,,, we will most definately see you again soon..

This hotel has been well reviewed already, and I do not want to repeat what others have said, except that the room (Blue suite) was exceptionally comfortable for my family of four, Jonny is an invaluable asset to the hotel, and the breakfasts were lovely (beautiful garden setting, fantastic yogurt - tasted like creme fraiche).

The room was spacious and could easily accommodate my twin 13 yr old daughters and I. The room is an interesting micture of old and new - the walls are 600 years old, and into the original shell, AVLI has built "modern" large apartments. The bathroom was well designed, with the toilet isolated from the main bathroom. We enjoyed coctails while watching the sun set from our rooftop jacuzzi.

Enough accolades cannot be given to Jonny. He was present to greet us at 11:30pm for our late arrival, and to wish us farewell when we left at 7am 5 days later. I am not sure when he sleeps. He reviewed our itineraries daily and made valuable suggestions for change. My rental car picked up a nail in the tire, and he arranged for its repair. Jonny really helped us to enjoy our time in Crete, and we cannot thank him enough for his labors.

This was our first time visting Crete, and hopefully will not be our last. The island has so much to offer - naturally stunning beauty; history and ancient ruins; and some of the most beautiful beaches I have visited in Europe. My children loved playing in the waves along the Rethymnon beaches, and the cold clear waters of the Libyan sea were wonderful to bath in after hiking Samaria. The city of Rethymnon is centrally located to many attrations that we could easily spend 2-4 weeks exploring the "top" sites. This hotel is a great place to make your "base camp" to explore western Crete.

Beautiful boutique hotel and restaurant. All of the rooms are unique. We stayed in the green room and loved it! Upon checking in, we were given a spread of local cheeses and meats and wine/beer. Lovely welcoming touch after a stressful journey/airport experience. Helped me to unwind immediately. Daily breakfast was delicious - I think I am going through withdrawal. Location is perfect - right near the Fortezza and amazing restaurants.

Tony and Jonny were fanastic! Jonny helped us map out all of our day trips and provided awesome recommendations for beaches and food. Tony lugged our suitcases to our rental car in the hot sun even though it was our fault for parking so far away! My husband and I were really happy with our choice to stay here for our wedding anniversary. I am missing laid-back, beautiful Crete! Thank you, Avli! We really appreciate your hospitality.

The Avli Lounge Apartments was the perfect place to stay in Rethymnon. Both Antonis and Jonny were extremely helpful and ensured we had a very personalized experience. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite (Brown Suite) and were very pleased with the room. The two balconies were great, both with views of the Fortezza. The room had a unique design and was very clean. The restaurant at the hotel is without question the best in town, and we ate there two nights in a row. We had such a great time at the Avli, and can’t wait to come back someday!

From the minute you arrive here they focus on helping you relax. It's almost jarring. You have to mentally reset so that you can slow down and enjoy yourself and all the staff here make it priority one. Combine that with a fantastic location, gorgeous rooms, and a great restaurant/garden and if you manage to have a bad trip it's definitely on you.

Frankly, I don't know if you could even manage it. No matter what comes up or what you need I'm fairly certain they would "figure it out" and get you set up in no time. Take some time to get lost in the old town, it seems no matter how turned around you get you always end up back at the hotel. Definitely eat at the restaurant and make it down for breakfast (which is fantastic and a great value add to the room).

We were in the green suite and greatly enjoyed it. Next time maybe we'll try one of the suites aware from the main building as well. The decoration and bath in the room were just totally beyond expectations. We've stayed some places with great service and more common accomodations and some that were top end luxury rooms with service not there to match. Avli Lounge gives both and with the added bonus of a boutique design and attention to service. Make sure to stop by Boheme as well sometime during your stay in Rethymnon.

The people who run this hotel are absolutely amazing. Aside from the beautiful atmosphere of this place, the staff/hosts really know the meaning of hospitality and go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and comfortable from the beginning of your stay until the end. Most hotels will focus on their guests towards the beginning of the stay and less on the way out, but the hosts of this hotel made sure to keep their standard of service until the end. On our last night we found a bug in our room and despite us assuring the host that we'd be fine (really not a big deal), he insisted that we move to a new room and we were moved to a bigger one. Honestly, I don't see the point of looking at other places to stay when I return to Rethymno with my family because I am looking forward to going back for a stay at Avli. One thing I'd advise is to keep an eye on the shower curtains but other than that there is nothing to remotely bad to say about this place.
