Visited Radamanthys again this year and had an outstanding holiday. The rooms are spotless, the pool is lovely and clean and Pagona and Stefanos made our holiday extra special. The hill may be a bit steep, but it's good excercise on the way back after a nice meal in one of the few tavernas nearby. We have never found the people in the supermarket to be rude, but a word of greek will go a long way (after all you are in Greece). As for the music being loud, you are ON HOLIDAY, get out and join in and you may actually find that you are having a good time!!!
We certainly couldn't fault the place or area and will be returning again in September, so look out Pagona and Stefanos!

This was without a doubt the worst holiday I have ever been on. There were several reasons: Why oh why did they decide to build these apartments in the middle of absolutely nowhere? Seriously, there is absolutely nothing to do. There are about 2 restaurants, neither of which are very good, just crap English food like omelettes and pizza. Oh, lets not forget the 'Cheese and Ham' which, for some unknown reason, Greek people seem think English love this meal!?
The beach is not great. Very pebbly and the sea is extremely rocky. Trust me, that beach is painful.
I did not go on holiday to spend half of the day in a bus or taxi, which is what me and my family seemed to do. It takes at least half an hour to get to the actual Rethymno town, which is lovely but its a shame that its so far away.
The people that own the mini supermarket nearest to the apartments are the rudest people I have ever met. I dont think I was aknowledged once by anyone on the till.
We could not believe that we had been sent to this place, it is far from a holiday resort.
The bar staff at the hotel were pleasant enough when they wanted to be. Although if you ask for a Sandwich/Pizza (which is the only food they sell, there are maximun 5 options on the chalkboard, which never change) they huff and puff about it.
You are kept awake by the dreadful hardcore and old nineties dance anthems until at least 5am, I am 20 years old, and I love music and having a great time (it might not seem that way!) but this was just way too annoying and frustrating. The only reason the bar staff drink with the holidaymakers is obviously to make more money out of them.
The pool is nice but small, and there are few sunbeds.
The apartment was clean and spacious, but this didnt account for the rest of the holiday, fortunately I was only there for one week, and the last day was certainly the best, because obviously, I was finally getting out of there.
Highly UNreccomended. Oh, and the airport is a wonderful 2 and a half hours from the airport.

well what can i say?
radamanthys is the best place i have ever been,

firstly the accomodation is spotlessly clean well done lilly.
and the staff stefan and pagona are simply the best they really put effort into making sure you enjoy your stay.

yes they are loud but great fun!!! we love you 2 and maybe selios too.

when you go there remember a few things....

1. you are going to a foreign contry where english is the 2nd language so sometimes the interpretation may get confussed just think about that if you think they are being rude, i promise you they are not!!!

2. the guys workin here are still humans they have feelings and do get tired and have off moments. dont be too harsh on them they do work bloody hard. they are not on holiday like you are.

3. the brochure tells you about the hill before you book so be prepared for it!!!

oh and everyone akways forgets the rep so hi mark. you do a great job we know its not easy. mark is the best rep we have had he wont push excursion sales on you like some do but some are ok tho go elafonisi its stunning. he walks up that hill 2 times a day so he knows how you feel
bless him

go see for your self and you will truley enjoy it i promise

we spent the 2 weeks leading up to our holiday worrying after reading the couple of reviews - even went as far as to call the travel agents to see if we could change accommadation - am so pleased that they told us to see how we felt when we got there - what can we say except superb!!!!
1. staff very polite, never rude maybe sometimes tipsy, but always there to entertain and to see to your every need - what more can you ask for!!!
2. apartments clean, airy, comfy beds clean sheets, changed every couple of days, appliances in the kitchen spotless and more than adequate.
3. music not loud in our opinion, but it is down to personel taste!! you cannot please everyone!!
4. games room - never went near it - was too busy playing with the kids in the pool.
5.bbq sunday nights are a must to attend if only to sample pagona's salads and jimmy's bbq skills. greek cusine at its finest.
6. bloody hill is a killer but make it an ambition to be able to run up the thing - do not let it beat you!!!!!
am so pleased we chose these apartments for our family holiday, feel we have made some really good friends, and would be more than happy to recommend our friends and family visit as well - know they will love it as much as we did. should also remember you cannot please everyone, so try making your own mind up about this lovely, relaxing hotel
p.s. sewer smell?? not when we were there.
