If you want a week on Crete, this is a nice place. It was a good trade. A car is helpful from either airport and for easy coming and going. But you can get there by cab and take day trips on or off the island. Nice beach is close too. However, one complaint was a day trip arranged through...

Very good facilities, but needs more stuff! If you are at any other pool than the main one, you cannot be served! IF you like, you can self serve! Addittionally, at the spa ... almost everything broken! And on Sundays.... no housekkeping! And sheets were changed once a week!!! once a week, during summer! Never experienced it before. Maybe it...

Good to use RCI points. You are the poorer cousin to the Grand Leoniki Residences. Front desk snotty to you. Don't want you to use their books. Wifi only works in certain areas. Not your room. Washing clothes doesn't really work. Our room was at the back right next to highway and all it's noise. Think we could get as...

Good choice to use RCI points!! Great welcome, clean well equipped room, comfy bed! Opted in for three days half board, good value but evening meals tailed off in quality after Cretan night!, breakfasts good though with choice of eggs, amazing omelette! Position great, right next to strip of good tavernas, shops and a brief walk to huge beach! Lots...

So first off this hotel was an RCI option for us and we were pleased to have it right smack in the middle of Crete in Rethymnon where Chania and Heraklion was approximately an hour away. It was about 6km to the harbor so it was all good. The room itself was meh as it was quite dated. There were...

Traditionally designed apartments with good space and everything you need. Spacious hot showers. A couple of minor hiccups were immediately resolved by friendly staff. Grand Leoniki pool is unfortunately sheltered all round preventing the sun from reaching it or much of the sun beds. Water was freezing in October but the bigger pools of adjoining Leoniki resort caught the sun...

This was a week on our RCI points for four adults in two separate units. We don't really self cater much so the limited kitchen facilities didn't bother us too much. Unit was simple but very clean with loads of storage and was cleaned each day. Bed was huge and comfortable. Staff were helpful and cheery. Had a facial and...

Great place to stay for quick week in sun! Pools lovely, beach in walking distance! Staff superb especially Mikelas and Vasilis!! Food average but freshly prepared! Apartments very dated but spotlessly clean! Probably won't stay again as not much going on but not to fault it!

Spending a week in August 2014 at this hotel was a disaster! The room was in the back facing the wall of another building adjacent to it. The water pressure in the bathroom was so low it was almost impossible to take a decent shower. Toilet paper had to be deposited in the bathroom's waste basket making for an unsightly...

What a fabulous resort. Our one bed room apartment was a duplex and was awesome. Pool at the Grand Leoniki was lovely as were the pools at the Leoniki residence. Lovely spa and sauna area, indoor pool and jacuzzi. Staff were lovely and the breakfast package was brilliant value for money. Not far from the beach and right on the...
