We stayed at this hotel for a week and found it to be just what we needed. The staff were very helpful and despite there being mainly German guests at the time of our visit, they all spoke English (As did most of the german guests). We had a room overlooking the pool and seemed noisy on our first night,...

Dear Mr Robert and Mrs Tracey, Thank you very much for your comments on my hotel but I would also like to clarify some of the things-situations you are commenting on.

We (2 couples) spent 7 nights at this hotel and enjoyed every single moment of it. The hotel is in the Platanias region, which means 15 minutes by car or by bus to Rethimno, the amazing city near by. From the hotel you can get to the beach in 5-10 minutes by foot. There is a rent a car office...

Just returned from staying at this hotel - nice and clean, friendly staff and a good location for tavernas and shops. Food was good and varied and rooms were kept very clean. The pool however is too small for the amount of people staying there and finding a lounger was difficult. Wifi is charged at 3€ an hour or if...
