Overall a good hotel, well located across the road from the beach and about a 10 minute walk to the Old Town. Pros - I often read reviews about how great the service is at various hotels, and how people are on first name terms with the staff, which us then not reflected in my experience at the hotel.

The hotel is right in town, this is not the touristy area, the shops just to the back of the hotel are for locals and there is a nice church just round the corner. It's 10 min walk to the old town and it is worth walking around and going up to the Fort (entrance to be paid but worth...

This hotel just needs a few changes such as our twin room was very stark and unwelcoming and needed refurbished. The shower in our room faced the width of the bath instead of the length. There is no dedicated entertainment area. The main swimming pool is far too small and the tiny pool above the porto restaurant is unheated. The...

We returned on 14 May from a lovely holiday at the Aquila Porto Rethymno. It was a lovely hotel on the seafront with three smallish pools on site - one on the terrace at the front, one by the outdoor dining area at the rear and an indoor pool. Just opposite the hotel was the beach with plenty of sun...

We booked through Thomson's. Arrived very late but the hotel had provided an excellent plated supper with wine - which we ate on the balcony at 11:30 at night! The room was adequate but a little tired and our room overlooked a side street with occupied apartments over the road. Thomson's rate the hotel Platinum but this was too high....
