Aquila Porto Rethymno  

A near-beachfront setting and a gourmet restaurant are just a couple of the draws at the Aquila Porto Rethymno.

This place has a great postcode. It’s just across the road from a sandy beach, and less than a 10-minute walk from Rethymnon’s lively town centre.

The bedrooms are housed in a modern, U-shaped building. Each room type is bespoke – some have mauve colour schemes with stripy wallpaper, while others feature floral themes.

Wonderful holidays

We had a wonderful stay at Aquila Porto Rethymno. Staff were all (without exepction) very kind, helpful and friendly. The room had a good standard and provided a balcony, as well as tea and coffee facilities. The size of the room was good, and it was very clean. Food at the restaurant was delicious; there was not a thing you would miss with the choice of the buffet. The pools are great, just like the whole hotel. Beach also was ver clean and beautiful. I can recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to feel like home and would love to come back soon.More

Aquila Rethimno Porto vs Aquila Rethimno Beach

We stayed in Aquila Porto one night and then moved to Aquila Beach for two nights and therefore I wrote this to compare between them, since both get high ranks but they are not the same experience. Both are great and deserve high rank but there are some important differences: Porto is a building on the beach and within a short walking distance from Rethimno old section. You get both a nice beach and access day and night to the city. Aquila Beach is a resort, 7 km to the east and has a variety of rooms and bungalows, and has a long private beach, but you will need transportation to go anywhere else. In both hotels from Aquila we received excellent service and all our requests where kindly responded.More

Great staff

We were among the first guests to arrive at the hotel on the day they opened for the 2016 season. As far as I understand they had been asked by the tour operator to open three weeks earlier than normal due to problems associated with other countries. Therefore, although the hotel had managed to open the top two floors, there was understandably work going on to open the others and a certain amount of noise was involved. Bearing in mind the fact that we had paid a very low price for the week, this really wasn't a problem. There were a couple of other issues due to opening early, lack of curtains being one of them. But, within ten minutes of us mentioning these to reception, all was sorted. Ignore any poor reviews for the hotel based on these as the hotel moved heaven and earth to solve the teething problems. The hotel is in a perfect situation as opposite their own beach, with free loungers and sunshades, and within a ten minute walk to the attractive old town. Luckily we had perfect weather for the seven days. The staff were exceptionally friendly and couldn't do enough for their guests. Food was of good quality and plentiful. The rooms were clean and bed linen changed every couple of days. A wonderful hotel to spend a holiday. More
