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.

Nice beachhotel with hard beds

A very nice hotell, with an absolutely marvellous breakfast. A pity though that the beds were so hard. We asked for bedmattresses and got that, but it didn't help, because they were so thin. The personell were all very helpful, polite and serviceminded.More

Very nice hotel with a absolutely fantastic breakfast. The personel were very friendly and helpful. A pity though that the beds were so hard. We asked for extra bedmatresses and got that, but they were very thin and didn't make any difference. More

Lisa G,

brilliant holiday

Superb hotel . Spotlessly clean. Staff always ready with a smile. Lady in charge of hospitality was always to be seen around. Food was superb. Never short of choice. We did eat out at lunchtimes but only because we wanted to try other restaurants. One in particular , on the venetian harbour was particularly great with delicious fish catch of the day. Swimming pools were a bit smaller than appears in brochure but the beach was just across the road. You can walk out a long way in the sea when it is calm as it never gets that deep,perfect for children. When wind is strong however it is quite choppy. Plenty of sand not much stone. Sunbeds are free if you are staying in the hotel. Another good thing is that hotel safes are free.. quite unusual. We had not booked any particular room and they upgraded us to side sea view room for free.,with a lovely view of sea ,town and mountains. You are in the middle of everything with old town a 5 minute walk away. A great place to explore, it is closed to cars at night.More

Cannot fault our hotel. The staff are polite and always have a smile for you. There is a large choice at meal times from the buffet and is always fresh and hot. Our standard room is spacious with a large sea view balcony. Everywhere is spotless. The hotel is in an excellent position straight across from the Blue Flag beach and easy flat walk into the Old Town.More
