6/10 Good

Overall this hotel was a really well designed and super clean. The room was wonderful, and the Jacuzzi was a bonus! For the price, I would expect there to be enough sunbeds for the amount of guests, and the food and drink to be a higher quality. Having your breakfast, lunch and dinner all in the same place with the same buffet is quite repetitive.

Very nice modern room. The beach is at a walkable distance. Excellent breakfast with a lot of choice. Easy to park near the property as we are outside the city of Rethymno.

If calm and relaxing luxury is your thing, if you love smooth jazz and chill music, if you are foodie, then you are at the right place as Syntopia will spoil all your senses. From beautiful scent around the venue, harmonic chic design, tropical plants to delicious and diverse food options. This is pure Eden vibe where you can reset your mind. Like a cherry on the top is the quality of the service. Staff members are professional, smiley and welcoming and that’s about everyone from receptionist to cleaners. Some of them are going beyond, so I believe it’s worth to mention their names: Spyros - the best skilled bartender, Olimpia and Michalis - the most smiley, warm and welcoming waiters, Pareskevi - super nice chef ( thank you for all those delicious Risottos 😊) and big applause for Manolis - Restaurant Manager who made us feel special and well looked after. He is a very proactive and professional leader. Me and my husband are working hospitality for more than 15 years and we know how hard is to to built such a great team so well done guys! Thank you so much for a perfect wedding anniversary celebration.

8/10 Very good

Very pretty and premium.
The entire hotel is super nicely furnished. Not one ugly piece, high quality wood etc. Almost unreal value for money also with the all inklusive! Would definitely recommend it! Only the location seems off not sure there is anything around other than the highway. We were passing through to go more West so didn’t mind, but seems a car is defiantly a must of you want to go anywhere off property.
