    Location 3.0 /10

    The Alexandros Hotel is located on the seashore, in the village of Drama, 2 miles from Georgioupolis, 12 miles from Rethymnon, 25 miles from La Chanee airport (1 hour and 15 minute transfer), and 59 miles from Heraklion airport (approximately 2 hour transfer).

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 80 rooms are evenly distributed between the main building and the bungalows. They are all identical, with a surface of 172 square feet and decorated Cretan-style (whitewashed walls, thick tiles, traditional dyed wood furniture, etc.). Only a few triple rooms (with bunk beds) are slightly larger. All rooms have air conditioning, a direct telephone (modem outlet), satellite television, and a safe (for a fee). The bathroom includes a shower or bathtub, and a toilet. Most rooms have a balcony or a terrace looking out on the sea (20 rooms look out on the mountain).

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1990 and renovated in 2001, the Alexandros hotel includes a main two-storey building and 4 small one-storey bungalows. The main building is painted white and decorated with blue shutters. This is where you will find a charming lobby with whitewashed walls and rattan furniture. A bar with a rustic atmosphere extends into a terrace overlooking the swimming pool area. The latter includes a 2,700 square feet pool and a tiled solarium with deckchairs and parasols (free). Near the pool, an amphitheatre is used for entertainment and shows.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The main restaurant is a pretty room in yellow and dark blue tones. Breakfast and dinner are served buffet style. These buffets are very standard, not very varied (2 dishes), primarily local specialities. No special evenings are organised. For lunch, you can go to the tavern for a self-service or menu meal. Carafe wine and mineral water are included in meals.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    Even though the hotel is built on the seashore, there is no real beach because at this location, on the extremity of the bay, the shore is covered with pebbles. Deckchairs and parasols (free) have, however, been placed on the lawns that slope softly to the sea. Despite the pebbles, swimming is possible and safe (guarded beach). To find a sandy beach, you will have to walk 980 feet away from the hotel. The closest water sports club is located 1 mile from the hotel; on the premises, you will only be able to enjoy windsurfing and kayaking.

    To know

    For children from 3 to 14 years old, a mini-club is open in July and August, except on Sundays and Mondays.

      The Iberostar Creta Marine is an immense seafront complex offering luxury hotel accommodation. It is laid out like a village, and its little groups of buildings retain a feeling of privacy while also boasting good quality facilities spread over a large park. There are also some nicely located artificial beaches, which are a bit small and not especially attractive, but nevertheless a positive point.

      Looking over the long beach of Rethymnon, the hotel could be mistaken for a high rise block of flats when seen from afar. Once inside, you will have a big surprise. Somewhat reminiscent of a cruise ship, the space is full of twists and turns, pontoons, parquet floors, and pretty little swimming pools... Thanks to intelligent renovation work, the hotel makes use of every nook and cranny to offer a maximum of services to its guests. There are many bay windows to allow maximum use of the natural light.
