Excellent very nice and peaceful destination with unforgettable music nights. The pool had clear crystal water and the breakfast is absolutely amazing. It's near the sea too. In my opinion you must visit Bueno hotel.

George absolutely makes your holiday with his fantastic hospitality. Couldn't do more to make all feel welcome starting with free drinks on arrival. In our case after a delay and arriving at 1.00am he also ordered pizza, these kind of gestures are truly appreciated particularly in this day and age. Great location only about 400 metres to beach and restaurants....

You just can't fault George and the team at Hotel Bueno for the effort they put in to look after their guests. We experienced it the very first moment we arrived. We arrived at Hotel Bueno after 1 am on a private transfer, which we had arranged ourselves. As we got off the minibus and searched for our luggage in...

Great family run hotel. Any time we had questions, the answers were given and recommendations given. The apartment was clean and well equipped. Very near to the beach and Main Street. We were there at the beginning of the summer season so it was quiet (which I enjoyed). Good location being a bit quieter but with a good bus service...

George and Joanna run the most friendly apartments, lovely and clean, very spacious, and ideally placed close to the beach and restaurants. George runs the bar and put the world cup rugby on the televisions during my recent two weeks stay, he even ordered take away food late at night and would not accept payment. On our last day waiting...

Recently returned from a two week stay at Bueno, and can't praise it highly enough. It's in an excellent location about 100 Mtrs from the beach and 75 mtrs from the high street where there is a supermarket and plenty of tavernas. Our apartment was spacious and well equipped and very clean. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice cooked...

On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find that our apartment consisted of a lounge/kitchenette, shower room and bedroom with a kingsized bed but most of all to find that it was cool. It was well equipped with hair dryer, hot plates, cooking utensils, even a coffee maker. There was one A/C which was able to service both main rooms,...

I have been staying at the Bueno for more then 15 years now, this place is always in my heart. Joanna and George and all their staff will guarantee you a warm welcome and ensure you have a relaxing enjoyable holiday. The pool is never over-crowded, the rooms are spotless, the bar is well stocked and the sun shines daily!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a large beautiful garden, full of trees and flowers, BUENO is only 150m from the wonderful Platanes sandy beach, only 4 km from the center of Rethymno city. Many rest and play areas for the guests, especially for the kids, because they can play free and safe, away from the traffic. We are off the main road, enclosed entirely by our private property, thus ideal for younger children and quiet for the older folks. ... more   less
