    Location 8.81 /10

    The hotel is located in the tourist centre of Rethymnon, 656 ft from the bay and its very busy beach and a stone's throw away from the historical centre of town. The hotel is located 47 mi from Heraklion airport. Allow around an hour and a half for transfers.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The hotel contains 245 spacious rooms decorated differently depending on the floor and the building, and almost all of them have a balcony. There is the choice between swimming pool views and mountain views, although the latter could be more realistically described as views over the very busy road! Fortunately, the hotel is fitted with triple glazing. The rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors of the main building were renovated in 2009, with light parquet flooring, a large mirror, a small desk, a sofa, bay windows, very firm beds and a pale blue bedspread which blends nicely with the blue and cream walls. Everything is pretty and matching. As for the renovated bathrooms, they are very pleasant, with a bathtub or a shower, a hair-dryer, a magnifying mirror and hospitality products. The other standard rooms date back to 2003 and are more numerous and less modern, but nevertheless well laid out. They are provided with a small television, a charged safe, individual air-conditioning, wired Internet connection, a refrigerator and a telephone. The family rooms are too small for the four beds that they contain, so you are better off booking two adjoining rooms if you are bringing your family. There are also three suites.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Guests can stay in one of two buildings: the main one, or a second one parallel to it, on the other side of the swimming pool. It can be reached in two ways, either by crossing a little road or by taking the beautiful tunnel connecting the two parts of hotel. The hotel is a very angular U-shaped construction dating back to 1983 and it was last renovated in 2003. Both the building and the decor are showing signs of ageing and the few staff members are in very short supply during busy holiday periods. The main building is next to a very busy road and its large, outdated reception area overlooks the hotel's large swimming pool through large bay windows. Guests can sit out on the many plastic recliners or on normal chairs in the middle of this vast concrete space. On the ground floor of the second building there is another small (heated) pool and a fine jacuzzi to relax in, albeit in a smaller area. Just next to it, the gym, with its old machines is a waste of space.

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    When the hote is full, a second restaurant opens for guests staying on a full-board basis. The main restaurant, a large square room cluttered with too many tables, is open from 7:30 am to 10:00 am and from 6:30 pm to 9:15 pm. It is easy to imagine how difficult it is to get round the international buffet counters in the middle of the room when the hotel gets really busy. The a la carte restaurant is nothing special, you are better off eating outside on the plastic chairs to escape the gloomy, yellow indoor setting. The limited menu offers pasta dishes and Greek specialities, and a Greek evening is organised once a fortnight.

    To know

    The hotel is open from the middle of April to the end of October and it offers a number of package options for guests, including full-board, half-board and bed & breakfast. An entertainment organiser is present throughout the whole season, with something different every evening. WiFi is available in the communal areas and once a week, guests are invited on a free walk to Agios Irini monastery.

    Accommodation tip: ask for a renovated room as these are more modern and have more character than the others!

        Le Theartemis Palace est un hotel situé en bord de mer, à 3 minutes à pieds de la plage. Personnellement j'ai beaucoup apprécié mes vacances en Crête et l'hotel reste également un très bon souvenir. Le personnel est accueillant et sympathique, les chambres sont propres et agréables, et il y a beaucoup d'activités proposées.

      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.

      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.

      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 Minos is an establishment that overlooks one of the busiest streets of Rethymnon. It is an architectural monstrosity of big concrete blocks. Once inside, you will discover a real labyrinth of a hotel, that is functional, but considerably lacking in charm.

      What a pleasure it is to wander around this hotel with all its green foliage, how neatly-kept and diversified it is! The Aquila Rithymna Beach stands on the seashore, with enough amenities to satisfy any guest: swimming pool enthusiasts, activity and sports lovers, but also gourmets and children of all ages. We must also make a special mention of the babys' club.

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.
