    Location 3.0 /10

    The Rinella Beach is located in Kokkini Hani, a small village where the mountains meet the sea. Close to the lively resort of Gouves and its numerous bars and restaurants, it is also only 6 mi from Heraklion airport.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The white hotel building, with its turquoise blue shutters and balconies, houses 440 rooms which have all been renovated, except for 50 of them. The beds are particularly large and the furniture is made of refined wood. As for the bathrooms, they are equipped with a bathtub and a hair-dryer. All the family rooms are spacious, with two separate rooms, but no effort has been made concerning the decoration in the children's area. All rooms have individual air-conditioning, a telephone, a satellite television and a fridge minibar, as well as afurnished terrace or balcony. We would like to warn parents, however, that some of the terraces are just over a foot away from the pool. If it wasn't for safety reasons, it would be really pleasant to be so close to the pool.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Rinela Beach is a large hotel which is tastefully decorated and rich in amenities. Its large pools and numerous colourful pergolas welcome you into a warm and merry setting. The hotel has a total of three pools - one is elongated and ideal for swimming lengths, whereas the main one, crossed over by a small bridge, is ideal for relaxing under the brightly-coloured pergolas. The hotel also has two bars close to the pool in addition to the main bar, 'Café Rinela' and the beach bar, as well as two water slides and a big playground which the kids will love.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    In the main restaurant, drinks are served at your table for the three daily buffets, which is quite an unusual service for an all-inclusive hotel. A wide selection of international dishes, as well as Greek specialities, are presented. The wrought iron furniture in shades of orange makes the restaurant hall and veranda look stylish and pleasant. The hotel also has three a la carte restaurants: one meal a week at the Chinese or Italian restaurant is included in the stay and there is also a typically Greek tavern, but you will have to pay extra for a meal there.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The little hotel beach is very close to the hotel itself but the deckchairs and parasols are set too close to one another. You will definitely enjoy the sand in the clear water and on the beach, unlike many of the other spots on the island which are covered in stones. The Rinela Beach water sports club offers canoes and pedal boats free of charge and it is also possible to do windsurfing and motorsports for a fee.

    To know

    Built in 1992 but continually renovated ever since, the Rinela Beach is open from April to November and its guests come from all over the world. For the past three years, it has been home to a small spa where a small team performs massages and facials, available for an extra charge. Many rooms have been renovated and benefit from a VIP service, with breakfast in bed included.

      The Gouves Sea is a very peaceful hotel, ideally located at the centre of Crete for those who want to explore the island. There is no organised entertainment here, and only 70 guest rooms, which gives the place a real family feel. Moreover, some of the rooms have been renovated and are therefore more luxurious.

      The Club Olé Golden Star evidently decided to focus on activities to be able to offer their guests a fun seaside holiday in a comfortable setting. Indeed, its location in one of the rare picturesque seaside villages of Crete is a real bonus and will not fail to satisfy the needs of families eager for a change of scenery.

      • Location 4.0

      Somewhere between a hacienda and a Cretan village you'll find the Chrissi Amoudia, a rustic complex which, although intensely big, isn't lacking in the charm department. The picturesque atmosphere of the Cretan village where the accommodation blocks are located is particularly appealing, though for a hotel of this standard the facilities are not really up to scratch. Located in Hersonissos, the trendiest spot on the island, this place is suitable for both families and thrill-seekers alike.

      Don't be misled by the grand name of the Kosta Mare Palace & Spa: it is a basic, all-inclusive hotel which is well-maintained but certainly not luxurious. Its many facilities raise it to four-star status, but the setting is starkly lacking in character.

      • Location 5.0

      Perched up on the slopes in the outskirts of Hersonissos, Crete's nightlife capital, the Hersonissos Village makes the most of its position outside the noisy centre. Set in verdant surroundings and benefitting from superb panoramic views of the coast, what really impressed us about the establishment was the Cretan style of the guest rooms, especially in the older buildings. Bear in mind that there is no mini-club for children here. The proximity of the sea and (small) beaches makes this a sure but unextravagant holiday destination.

      The all-inclusive Mediterraneo hotel provides a seaside holiday away from the city centre, in an unsophisticated setting. Adequatey equipped, with rooms that offer decent comforts, the hotel nevertheless lacks too much character to make guests forget how far away the beach is (1,300 ft).
