We stayed here for 3 nights in June of 2012. We had taken the bus from Iraklion and took a taxis to get to the hotel. We did not understand that the center of Rethymnon in the "old town" was not open to cars and essentially paid 5 Euros to go about 3 blocks in the taxis, where upon the cab driver emptied our suitcases on the sidewalk and told us to hike it the rest of the way. It wasn't far, but just not what I was expecting.
We found the hotel without too much issue and fell in-love with the beautiful villa. Our room had a little balcony that looked over the outside breakfast area. The decor was very beautiful. The venetian glass lamps looked lovely, but were a bit too bright as they didn't have lamp shades and the stand up jacuzzi wasn't exactly what I was expecting either. My poor husband is 6'3 and did not fit well into the shower.
We enjoyed the breakfast and the wonderful staff. They were able to rent a car for us, we were picked up from out hotel and driven to the rental place. When we returned from our 1 day trip, we just parked the car by the hotel and dropped the keys off at the reception, convenient! The staff gave us great recommendations for places to see on our excursion and we had a wonderful day running around Crete.
Of our whole Greek vacation, I loved Rethymnon the most with it's old world charm, great food, inexpensive shops and friendly atmosphere. This hotel was the icing on the cake and I would stay there again without question!
