    Location 7.0 /10

    Equidistant from Heraklion (44 miles east) and La Chanee (40 miles west), the Rethymno Palace is accessible from two international airports. Located on the seashore, only 4 miles from Rethymnon, this hotel combines the pleasures of the sea, city sightseeing, and hiking in the mountain. The surroundings are, however, disappointing and one has to drive a few miles to discover the area's charm.

    Accommodation 7.50 /10

    The hotel has 230 rooms, all standard, with the exception of three suites. They have a balcony or a terrace with seaview for 70% of them. They have air conditioning (primarily individually controlled), television, a safe (for rent), a direct international access telephone, and a refrigerator. Even the furniture has marble, and the bathroom has a tub and a hair dryer.

    Overview 8.50 /10

    Built in 1995 on 44 acres of land, and well-maintained, the hotel is less attractive because of its ordinary architecture than because of its delightful gardens. Creeping bougainvillea throwing fushcia pink on the immaculate white of the buildings are a delight for the eyes. 'All in marble' is the rule here. We knew Crete was blessed with a lot of this noble stone, but we had never seen so much of it! The lobby, the restaurant, the rooms... It is everywhere.

    Food and drink 7.00 /10

    There are two restaurants available for guests, whether they are full-boarders, half-boarders, or in Bed & Breakfast. The main restaurant, entirely tiled with black, red and white marble, and furnished with wooden chairs with red cushions, and offers varied buffets for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A tavern located between the pool and the beach, open from 10.00am till midnight, offers Greek specialities or grilled foods in a different setting. There are also two bars.

    Beach 7.50 /10

    The beach is very close, long and relatively narrow, and has no cause to be envious of Heraklion beaches, on the contrary. Deckchairs must be rented, but showers are available to swimmers, as well as a snack bar offering drinks and light meals. The sand is nothing special, but the sea is beautiful.

    To know

    This hotel's clientele is 70% German, central European, and Russian. It is open from April to the end of October.

      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 Everything about it is outdated, but you will be greeted by a warm and friendly welcome.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.

      The Pearl Beach is a friendly establishment which is actually much larger than it might look. Located at the far end of the long Rethymnon promenade, its best assets are undoubtedly its spotless and very stylish spa and its location near the historical centre of Rethymnon.

      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.
