Amy Adejokun Section editor

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 6.8 /10

    The Kirki hotel is located at the heart of the small port of Panormo, which is much less touristy than the neighbouring resort of Bali. The town of Rethymnon, where the Turkish and Venetian influences on the island can be seen, is only 11 mi from the hotel, whilst Heraklion airport is 34 mi away. The bus service which runs between the two towns stops at the bus-stop just alongside the hotel.

    Accommodation 6.45 /10

    Do not expect any luxury when you come to the Kirki; comfort levels are basic, hygiene is less than perfect and whilst the accommodation is certainly spacious, the rooms are not always well designed. If you are staying in one of the split-level maisonettes, for example, you can only get down to the lower level via seemingly never-ending stairs. The apartments, which can accommodate four to five people, have tables and chairs, a small kitchen with a refrigerator, a sink and mini-hobs; whilst the bathrooms have a shower, rather than a bathtub, but no shower curtain. Cleanliness is clearly not the top priority here, and the rooms have no television and only optional central air-conditioning. However, the intimacy that the hotel offers, along with its typical architecture, should add a touch of authenticity to your stay, and all on a budget! Some of the accommodation has semi-private terraces, complete with deckchairs, that overlook small garden areas, though it is also possible to request a pool view.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The hotel's 52 rooms are housed in Cyclades-style blue and white buildings, with a reasonably-sized swimming pool at the centre of the complex (which is unsupervised). Most of the clientele tends to leave the hotel during the day to go off sightseeing, which means that the hotel is particularly quiet in the day time. There is no organised entertainment here, apart from the Cretan night held every Saturday in the high season which gives guests the opportunity to enjoy live traditional dancing.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel restaurant serves breakfast and dinner but is closed at lunchtime. Meals are served as a buffet with six different dishes every day, including, of course, a selection of Greek specialties, though it is a shame there is no terrace as it would be nice to eat outside. At lunchtime, your best bet is to head to a nearby snack bar, or one of Panormo's many reasonably-priced traditional taverns.

    To know

    A part of the Kirki was built in 1989, followed ten years later by the other part, and the hotel is only open between February and October. The primarily French and Dutch guests that the hotel attracts tend to do their own thing, and even though the hotel has a lovely swimming pool, holiday-makers seem to prefer to go off on day trips or hire a car from the hotel. The Kirki does not have its own beach, but the nearest one, which is not very big, is just a ten-minute walk away. Alternatively, you could take a ride out to the large beach at Georgeopoulis, 16 mi away, or the one in the resort of Bali, 9 mi away.

Natural elegance and sophistication are the order of the day at the Royal Blue Resort, which is particularly proud of its wonderful spa. If you're looking for a beach holiday, however, you can forget it, although there are some 30 private pools within the hotel grounds.

      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.

One of them is a ceramics studio where you can learn about this art through demonstrations by professionals, but which also offers practical workshops during which visitors can try moulding and creating their own authentic ceramic pieces. 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.
