We have just returned from a weeks stay at this wonderful hotel, and it's very friendly staff. The bedrooms are of a very modern style and have plenty of hanging and drawer space and the slippers and bath robe was a nice addition. Plenty of outside space to sit and relax or take a dip in the pool or the beach accross the road with the hotel having it's own private area of sunbeds. The hotel is located in a very quiet part of Rethymnon although a steady 40 min.walk to the centre, or take a taxi from the rank outside the hotel. Overall no complaints, couldn't have wished for a better place to stay, everywhere is spotless and the food great. we will be back.

Myself and partner went on holiday to Crete and stayed in this 5 star hotel that was in the same grounds as the pearl beach hotel facilities were use by both hotels which is ok but the service from the other hotel was very poor the staff were not alert to their customers and you could sit there for a time before they came over to serve you. I know that you may think why not just go to the bar and get served but if you did you were told to sit down and someone would come over to you. Our hotel was very nice the staff very friendly the housekeepers were extremely good. On our first day there after arriving at 5 in morning we went for breakfast and we had to queue to be seated something of which I have never experienced in a hotel before. The waiting staff in the restaurant were very attentive and cleaned tables very quickly. Entertainment within hotel was very poor and this was reflected but very poor attendance. We went out every night and found some lovely places to eat. And our last day within the resort was the most disappointing having to leave your room by 12 and after not being able to stay in the room longer you get to have a shower in a shower room that is a very impersonal where you have to leave your personal items in a room that others can walk into if you forget to lock door this is only my view as when you are not been picked up until 12.40 am so you are waiting around for 12 hours nowhere to retreat too. And I have never been in a place that take a deposit for beach towels which you can only change over clean ones 3 days a week.

Good afternoon and thank you for staying at Sentido Aegean Pearl and for taking the time to review our hotel. We regret that the services of the staff of Pearl Beach Hotel did not match your expectations, however we would want to note that the vast majority of travelers on all review platforms rate the service and attitude of the staff of Pearl Beach very highly, in terms of its professionalism and genuinely friendly and hospitable approach. We would also want to note that there is no queue at the breakfast buffet, as there is plenty of indoor and outdoor space for our guests at the restaurant. The outdoor area/terrace of the restaurant may be closed only in rainy days, in which case there may be a 5 to 10min delay/waiting time. Day use of rooms for late departures is offered when there are rooms available. When the Hotel is full, courtesy rooms are offered to guests who have a late departure. These rooms have showers and towels where our guests can take their shower and change clothes during the day. Finally, our policy and schedule for beach towel change is directly linked to our participation in EN ISO 14000/2004 and the TRAVELIFE environmental programme, according to which we are obliged to follow specific regulations and actions in line with sustainable development and in order to protect the environment, while the vast majority of our guests appreciate and encourage this effort. Once more, thank you for your custom. With our best wishes from Rethymno, Crete.

Arrived at the hotel,had to wait for room as i have mobility problems and they needed to change our room .I had informed them of this on booking.
The rooms are very clean and well laid out with small fridge for water.ect
We only had B&B but food was good.The staff are all friendly,and willing to help.We only went to the beach once,as although it looks lovely the last part into the water is very pebblely and difficult to get out of the water.for anyone including small children best to carry them.
One thing I thought could be inproved upon is the area around the private pools we looked down on one, not a pretty sight.from our room.
The main pool is very nice with one of the staff at various times of the day checking that you are not bed hogging as he takes towels away from any beds not being used ,what a great idea.
overall the hotel is good but don't think we will be going back,

Room Tip: Don't ask for sea view they have very few

Today is our last day at this great hotel. The rooms are lovely - clean modern and comfortable. The food is really good although mainly buffet style. The hotel is at the end of the beach so it's a 20 minute walk into the old town - but that's fine as it means you have the best of both worlds and don't have the hustle and bustle if you don't want it. The staff really make this hotel as they are really friendly and helpful. Special shout out to Manouloso in the bar and the guy at the hotel beach who look after everyone really well. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
