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.

Excellent service

We spent a week at this hotel at the end of October. The weather was starting to get cold and rainy but the warmth and friendliness of the hotel staff made this a fantastic holiday none the less. The food wasof good standard with both vegetarians and meat while the breakfast spread offered a very good variety. The hotel is a mere ten minute's stroll from the beautiful old town. We were half board which gave us the options to sample some of the excellent restaurants in town. We also took the 12 stops, hop on and off bus tour which went round the old town, pass the Venetian fort and into the mountain- this trip is well worth the fare, especially if you plan to visit the gorge and monasteries along the route. This hotel is excellently located if you want a bit more than just lying on sun lounges everyday! We look forward to coming back again next yearMore

end of season blues

I would just like to say it is difficult to judge the hotel as it was end of season and it was closing the day we left. However that's what I need to judge it on and as such it wasn't great. Parts of the hotel closed, no entertainment, bar shut, restaurant shut. Staff carried on and had great service, but with an eye on their holidays. The food was ok prices very expensive in the hotel and in general in Greece. The hotel information in the rooms and around the hotel was very poor.More

Ian M,

summer holiday

The hotel was excellent, situated in an ideal location,food was very good, staff were friendly. beach facilities were good. But I was disgusted by Thomsons taking advantage of the poor facilities of Heraklion airport, by offering the service of bypassing the long queues for a charge of £40 per person, talk about money grabbing !!!!More

Lovely welcoming hotel

We spent a week here in late October we had a double seaview room on the 6th floor which was a side sea view. We were upgraded to Mythica guests which was lovely as there were so many complimentary extras all of which we enjoyed. Strictly speaking we should have had a deluxe double full sea view but when we were given the option of changing rooms we had to agree that the one we were in was better. This was due to a refurbishment plus the side view of the sea gave a greater sweep of the coast. Our room was very clean a good size and the bathroom was excellent. The hotel is a few feet from a wonderful beach and although it is adjacent to a road we never experienced noise at night and maybe due to the time of year, it was quiet during the day. The hotel is approximately a 10 minute walk from the main town and well located for shops etc. All of the staff were pleasant and the spa is worth a visit. We did not love the food but it was fine and we are difficult because we don't eat meat, but this just meant we ate dinner in the old town on several occasions which we loved and which added to our holiday. We really had a great holiday, we loved the hotel and its location and appreciated the customer service. More

A relaxing stay and lovely sea view

My husband and I arrived to initially, what we thought was a hotel far from our description on booking, the hotel had no real major entrance and we got off the bus on a side street, after going to our first room 414 we did ask for another as the room was small and you had to go on the balcony to see the sea, our Thompson rep was very helpful and the next day we moved to the floor below with a lovely view. The staff here are excellent and couldn't be more helpful and happy. The food has a wide variety of choices for the breakfast and evening meals (we booked half board). Because of the season coming to an end places around are quieter and the sun loungers are slowly disappearing but the hotel are still putting in the effort. My only negatives, the showers are VERY temperamental fluctuating from scolding hot to cold and if you don't get in the lift quickly enough, the doors will close on your arms, ouch.More
