Good hotel but with some flaws, a friendly staff and a beach of it's "own". Hotel located 5 min walk east of the centre with the beach just across the street. Quite heavy traffic, hotel surrounded on three sides but disturbed less than expected. On the short walk to the centre many restaurants at hand. Public areas in good status...

Visited this hotel for two weeks in early April and was generally impressed. The food was excellent, the staff most helpful and the hotel was spotless. We were the first group of the new season from England and for the first few days the hotel was extremely quiet. We were upgraded to a superior room which was good apart from...

Stayed in April 2015 and received a warm welcome from the pleasant and helpful staff. The food was wonderful - ;a wide choice at both breakfast and dinner. Enjoyed the fresh orange juice at breakfast and the greek dishes from the hot buffet in the evening. Excellent salads and the sweet counter was a choccoholics dream

I stayed the last week of April, I'm a solo traveller, my first solo beach holiday. The staff were very kind and friendly. I felt safe, and valued. The spa was excellent, you get given a free taster but I already knew I was booking treatments so it was added to my massage. Will be back sometime I hope. X

I actually flagged a review as helpful (twice) doh! By mistake. The one saying by American standards average. Ignore these. I was trying to comment by saying typical yanks. Too lazy to get their own food on beach. And to big for showers. I and my family found this hotel AMAZING. Friendly absolutely. And if there was something you just...

We stayed in Aquila Porto in Crete in April 2015 and it was enjoyable. At the start of the holiday there were very few residents as the season only kicked off. There wasn't much to do in Rethymno at that time, despite a central location of the hotel, as there was Orthodox Easter time and many places were closed ....

We stayed as a family of five through TUI and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is well appointed with good rooms that are clean and comfortable. The facilities are good and the stretch of beach in front of the hotel is well kept and equipped with a volley ball court (bring your own volley ball). There is an indoor...

The food was great; the wine...
