    Location 6.5 /10

    The Bali Star hotel is located at the back of a small sheltered bay, 1,640 feet away from the village of Bali, 18 miles away from Rethymnon, and 28 miles away from Heraklion. For transfers to and from Heraklion airport, count a little less than an hour.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    Like the rest of the hotel, the rooms are simple, and decorated in white, grey, pink, and pastel blue. All rooms are tiled and have air conditioning, a direct telephone, a refrigerator and a safe (for a fee). The small bathroom features a sink, a shower and toilet. A large balcony looks out on the car park and the road, the gardens and the mountain, or the sea and sthe wimming pool. Do not hesitate to specify your preference when you make your reservations (view non guaranteed). The three hotel's triple rooms can accommodate up to 4 persons. They have a large 320 square feet terrace with sea view.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Bali Star is a small and very simple hotel. Built in 1991 and expanded in 1996, it is a modern 2-storey building. The 62 rooms are distributed among two wings framing the lobby. The lobby extends into a small bar, so close that the receptionist sometimes fills in as bartender! The bar opens onto the swimming pool area equipped with a 1,614 square feet pool, a children's pool, and a tiled solarium. There, you can use plastic deckchairs and parasols free of charge. Behind the hotel, a large lawn, crossed by the path leading to the beach, can also be used for suntanning. A very small playground is available for children.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The restaurant is in an adjoining building located behind the hotel and swimming pool. It opens onto a large terrace sheltered by a blue wooden pergola. Inside, tables are arranged with sufficient space between them, offering satisfactory privacy. Breakfast and dinner are served buffet style. Buffets have limited choices (2 hot dishes for dinner) with primarily local cuisine. For lunch, you can go to the snack featuring a terrace that overlooks the entire bay. A nice menu offers a good selection of snack classics and specialities. Count around 4 euro (£3) for one course.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The public beach is located in a small 328 feet long and 32 feet wide cove. Because it is isolated, it is a beach of choice for Cretan vacationers. It is, therefore, often crowded. However, the setting is pleasant, unspoiled, exempt from ungainly modern constructions, with the exception of the adjoining parking space. This cove offerts crystal-clear, shallow water, that will enchant children. The beach has deckchairs and parasols (for a fee). For water sports, you will have to go to the next bay, where a small water sports club offers various activities.

    To know

    Because the hotel is isolated from the island's main interest sites, it is recommended to rent a car.

      The hotel Atali is a family-run business where the majority of the clientele are half-boarders. Located in the seaside resort of Bali, you will doubtless be impressed by the varied Cretan landscape which surrounds it.

      The Frameco Kirki is the ideal base for families looking for a pied-a-terre at the heart of the small village and port of Panormo. Although the bathrooms here leave something to be desired, the level of comfort offered by the hotel is perfectly sufficient for tourists looking for a base from which to explore the island.

      • Location 6.0

      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.

      Set on the coast road, the May hotel is a small and very simple hotel surrounded by a lush green rectangular garden. Everything about it is outdated, but you will be greeted by a warm and friendly welcome. It is a shame that the hotel doesn't have a beach though and that the restaurant isn't any more pleasant.

You might also wish to attend a concert featuring traditional music or take part in the grape or olive harvest, which is ideal for those looking to do something different while enjoying the nature.

      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.
