10/10 Exceptional

Only a 15 minute walk to the heart of Old Town, this delightful hotel is situated right on a marvelous long sandy beach, perfect for swimming and sunbathing. The patroness, Eva, and her staff are courteous and enthusiastic to please. Delicious breakfast and appetizers are served daily.

Eva is a very welcoming host in her hotel. Location is just what we wanted. Right by the sea with the sound of waves on the shore. Excellent breakfasts with special items each day.

Lovely hotel - recommended
Just back from Filoxenia. A lovely hotel that I am missing already. It has everything one could want. Its right on the beach and all comforts are provided. Our duplex room was great too. Snacks and cocktails are tasty and available. Don't miss the milkshakes! Eva was lovely and helped us plan our trip. Hector the dog kept an eye on things. Only negative and rather odd point was that the cleaning lady made our beds just once in 4 days. Soon sorted out once we mentioned it to Eva.

Nice hotel on the beach
The hotel is small and very welcoming. All the rooms face on the beach, with balconies, and there is a lovely view of the Venetian fortress about 2 km away. The room furnishings are simple but modern and clean. The breakfast was excellent, with a great variety of food, some cooked in house. There is a small pool, and parking for about 4 cars next door. If your car is a large one, however, you will find the entrance a tight fit. There are some very nice restaurants within a short walk.

Good room, nice pools, close to beach
Had a pleasant stay until we tried to get out of the steep driveway and scraped the edge of a truck while trying to avoid being hit by another car. Eva was very helpful and assisted us dealing with the car rental company and insurance representative.

Very friendly family-run hotel
This small family-run hotel was on the beachfront on the quieter side of town. It was just a short walk to the Old Town. The room was nice and airy with a balcony overlooking the sea. There is a terraced area adjoining the beach with plenty of sunbeds / seating. Eva, the manager, was very friendly and helpful. If you're looking for something more secluded than the more crowded long beach and row of hotels this may well suit you.

Perfect and relaxing
This hotel is wonderful, positioned right on the beach with lovely views plus a good walk into the old town. The size of the hotel means you can enjoy the weather and culture without the noise and business. Eva is a wonderful host and would recommend anyone to follow her recommendations for dinner or places to visit. The rooms have plenty of room and are cleaned daily, breakfasts are lovely with always something different to try and her little dogs adds lots of character. Only negative would be the big slope into the car park which made for an interesting start to the first journey we did but this is the only flaw (and absolutely a liveable one) in otherwise a perfect stay.

Best of the best!!!
Wonderful service, went above and beyond. Unique accommodation, great refreshing pool (saltwater) great sunbeds. Breakfast was very enjoyable!!! The beach was great for swimming, lovely hotel away from the busy central city area, but a short walk to the historic area of Rethymon. We would love to go back and take our children with us and stay at Filoxena!!! Perfect Service!!

Wonderful stay
We had a brilliant time at Filoxenia. Eva looked after us so well. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a really relaxing time. The breakfast was delicious and the very civilised time of being served until 11 was much appreciated! we had a seaview from our room with a fantastic view of the bay of and the old town. The patio and beach were like a peaceful oasis and the location of the hotel was perfect. It was a 20 min walk into Rethymno which suited us fine. All in all we had a perfect holiday in our little taste of paradise. Thank you so much Eva and Nikos for providing us English ladies with such wonderful memories!
