    Location 8.88 /10

    The Yassou Kriti is located on the seashore, near the small village of Kavros, 2.5 miles from Georgioupolis and 10 miles from Rethymnon. La Chanee airport is 27 miles away from the club (or approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes transfer) and Heraklion airport is a 2 hours drive.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    All the rooms located in bungalows are very simple and spacious. They are tiled and painted in white. Comfort is basic: a fan, a safe (for a fee), and a telephone connected to the swithboard (direct line available). The bathrooms are tiny. They feature a sink, a shower or a tub, and toilet. A balcony or terrace offers a nice view of the sea (direct or side view) or of the gardens. The Phaestos rooms are more modern. The design is more detailed, and rooms appear cleaner than the rooms in the bungalows. Comfort is similar, with the exception that bathrooms have a tub, and the view from the balconies is not as pretty.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in the mid eighties and renovated in 1997, the Yassou Kriti is divided in two parts, separated by an inaccessible waste land. The first part includes a main building and several 1 or 2 storey bungalows hosting part of the hotel's rooms. In the main building are the front desk, the shop, a bar, and the excursion desk. Like most common areas, the small nightclub is unappealing and would benefit from a good renovation. After walking around lush alleys along the bungalows, you will reach the swimming pool area, located near the beach. The swimming pool (3,700 square feet and 10 feet deep) is elevated. It is surrounded by a pleasant but insufficiently equipped solarium, overlooking the sea. The second part of the club includes a recent modern building (the Phaestos) which hosts rooms, a television room, a multi-purpose room (for shows in low season) and a mini swimming pool (215 square feet). Outside, you will find a swimming pool (1,600 square feet) and a playground (petanque, chess).

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel's restaurant is at pool level. It is divided in two buildings with, on one part, a room reserved for buffets, and on the other part, a dining room. You can also eat on the terrace. With long 20 seat tables, the dining room evokes the canteens of long ago. Fortunately, a few 4-seat tables make it possible to isolate yourself from the other guests from time to time! The food is very basic, with a choice of 4 to 5 hot dishes. Once a week, the restaurant adopts a local style and offers a Greek evening (barbecue). Once or twice a week, you can also eat crayfish or fish at the tavern (with supplement). Local wine at will during meals.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The club is located across a large fine sand and pebble beach. The surroundings are uneven: mountains are a pretty background but the environment is spoiled by ungainly constructions and rocky areas. Deckchairs and parasols have been installed on the pebbles that cover the first six feet of the beach. The club offers pedalos and kayaks to its guests. The lack of motorised water sports in the bay provides peace and quiet on the beach.

    To know

    A team of 10 French-speaking activity leaders offers daily activity programs with games, sports, tournaments, folklore evenings once a week, and shows. Children have a playground and a pool in the main swimming pool. For children from 4 to 12, a mini-club is open non stop daily, during the entire season (except on Sundays and Mondays).

      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.

      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.

We must also make a special mention of the babys' club.
