We were in the older section and the rooms are ok, but only 1 bedroom, extra people need to sleep on the fold up couch leaving no living space. Balcony is nice. Aircon was hit and miss. Toilet sometimes flushed. Pools are very nice. Staff are generally friendly and helpful. To use laundrette you need to hire a key. Ok... More

We cashed in some RCI points to stay here and were told many things would be closed. We also were told its a report of International Distinction. After reading the reviews we booked Leoniki residence. We were told we were being upgraded to the Grand Leoniki. Even though we requested to remain at what we booked and not be upgraded... More

We stayed at the Leoniki Residence (part of the Grand Leoniki complex) for a week with Diamond Resorts on 1st October. We hired a car at Heraklion Airport so didn't get to the hotel until midnight but George was there to greet us with a smile! He took us to our room and also hopped in the car to show... More

From RCI reviews etc. we came hoping we had not been oversold. We are thrilled! the room is great, the staff enjoyable and helpful. October is the time to come. Crowds are down, weather is great. Experience at resort and Crete are fantastic. Pictures at RCI show a great resort, and are very accurate.

We have just returned from Grand Leoniki after spending a fortnight there. We stayed in a one bed maisonette, which was well equipped, and very spacious. Large balcony looking over the pool. House keeping was excellent. Everything was spotless and the reception staff were very helpful and always very pleasant. Lots of lovely places to eat out.

Easy to find, the bus from Rethymnon stops outside. Just a few mins to the beach. Very clean and in good condition everywhere as you would expect from a part timeshare location. Timeshare reps did not hassle us at all. Great second swimming pool which has 25m length was hidden behind certain apartment blocks. it was wonderfully quite and restful.... More

Restaurant is excellent value. Rooms are a bit disappointing. Most ground floor rims have a tiny balcony opening directly onto the main walkway. Make sure you have a room upstairs. Overall rooms are a bit dated and the finish is a little shoddy but rooms are perfectly serviceable. Good centre for exploring Rethymnon and area. Timeshare salesmen need batting away... More

Leoniki Residence is located in Platanias, an area close to Rethymno. It has a time sharing availability which is what we've used. The hotel has excellent breakfast, many swimming pools and personel is trained with a very high standard. The only point of critisism was internet access & tv system that needs to be improved.

We checked in for a week. Reception staff speaks fantastic English and put us at ease all the time. Manlos recommended us to great restaurants. Breakfast and dinner combo was great value compared with outside. Room was clean and comfortable. We are happy with what the stay.
