Our Room # 309 The hotel is perfectly located. Steps away from restaurants, shops, the beach, and a short hike (20 minutes) to the city center/old port. There's a large grocery store on the same street as the hotel, on the next block up, just walk away from the ocean/main strip up the hill from the hotel. The beach has plenty of beach loungers for free, so you never have to fight for a spot. The beach is also spotlessly clean. My room was a superior/partial sea view. Spacious and clean. The room furniture and hallway carpeting are a little tired, but that's a minor complaint. The wi-fi is great. Lastly, the service was top notch. Check in and check out were a breeze. The staff were professional and friendly. Even the cleaning lady was awesome. We had a super early flight to catch (7am). Not only did the front desk make sure to coordinate a early cab for us, they made sure to have a early breakfast ready for my wife. So thoughtful! Just top notch service! I would definitely come back!

3 Star Hotel at best
Room was clean, although very small with a poor layout. Housekeeping visited only once during a 3 night stay. Advertised as free parking but in reality there are just 2 spaces and they were occupied by the same cars for the few days we were there. Outdoor pool is small but ok for a quick dip. Only 4 sunbeds around the pool. Indoor pool and sauna were closed due to covid. Reception staff seem bored and uninterested in the guests, never looking up to acknowledge our presence, constantly glued to their phone screen. Every morning at 8am the hotel has the recycled glass collected, it was so noisy it woke us up every time. Check out time was advertised as 12pm but on the day of the checkout we were told we have to leave at 11am due to covid. Nicely located opposite the beach.

Fantastic staff, always ready to assist and cater to your requests and comforts. Nice property, right in front of the beach within walking distance to everything. Super clean hotel and quite comfortable. Good air-conditioning. I am a light sleeper so some of the front rooms had minor traffic noise, which in most cases shouldn’t bother the average sleeper. Management immediately made every effort to move me to a beautifully appointed suite which was dead quiet-just the way I prefer. Overall this Is a very nice hotel, with nice rooms & facilites, and exemplary staff second to none. Probably one of the best hotels in Rethymno. Would definitely stay again.

Description of first room as a city room was poor as we only overlooked a tree so we upgraded to a sea front room for another 30 euro

Kriti Beach Rethymnon
We booked the kriti Beach hotel in Rethymnon but unfortunately it had not yet opened for the summer season, instead the management of the group that runs the hotel offered us its sister hotel instead, an offer we accepted. You continued to offer the Kriti Beach while it was closed.

Very busy location, good for beach access
The pics of the hotel are a little deceptive; it shows a good size pool, opposite the sea, but in fact the pool is right on the corner of a very busy road, so it's a bit like swimming next to the M25. The beach is very nice, with loungers and umbrellas for hotel guests, but the water looked a little murky, and it's quite close to the harbour, so I'm not sure it's the cleanest beach. Nobody used the pool, and after a couple of hours I could see why. There is little privacy, it's open to view from the street and the tour buses, plus overlooked by buildings on the corner, so not really relaxing. They missed a trick with the planning. Also, although there was a bar near by, there didn't appear to be any staff.

clean comfy hotel, top staff, all facilities
We stayed at Kriti Beach for a week to spend our honeymoon. We couldn't have chosen a better destination and hotel. We were very impressed with the staff who are very nice and professional. The breakfast buffet was superb. Plus you get all the facilities you can ever need: outdoor swimming pool and indoor spa/pool, massage, gym, wifi working everywhere, fridge and safebox in the room, private balcony, quick access to beach with free sunbeds and towels. You can even order drinks from the beach. The hotel is not far from the town center and there are many supermarkets, travel agencies, restaurants, pubs and shops nearby. I think this hotel is perfect for couples and grown-up friends, not for families with kids though. Rethymnon is a lovely destination as well as Chania. Heraklion not so much and its airport is very chaotic though.
