7,0 Good
Pros: It was a fabulous welcome - provided with drinks and a cheese platter on arrival in the lovely courtyard restaurant. Was the best arrival of any hotel we have stayed at. The room was very large and the staff wonderful. The restaurant was excellent for breakfast, which was included in the price, and for dinner. The location was very central, close to everything in the old town, yet it was quiet.
Cons: The bathroom did not have a shower and the room (and only window) was facing a rundown building. This unfortunately required keeping the blinds closed which did make the room dark and closed in. In addition, the bathroom had a glass wall that backed on to the common staircase. This made it difficult to block the light at night and did allow for some other guest noise, including accessing of the spa on the floor above us.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The hospitality, the welcome drink and snack, the unique room and many more ..
Cons: Cappuccino at breakfast is a standard in almost all 4* and 5* hotels I visited in Europe and should not be at optional costs
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was great and very well located. Their restaurant is rated best in the town and it had a great breakfast too.
Cons: The jacuzzi bath did not have a shower element which was a little inconvenient.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was top notch! I loved the courtyard where they serve breakfast and dinner. It’s filled with plants, it has a huge date palm tree, a lime tree full o& fruits, pots of plants everywhere! The candy suite that we stayed in had a balcony which was pretty secluded. We used it often, for reading books and having a glass of wine. The staff are so warm and caring and genuinely interested in us and our needs. The dinner was outstanding. They do have a reputation for being the top quality restaurant in town, but honestly, the food was even better than I expected to be. I would stay in Avli every time I’m in Rethymno, no question about it.
Cons: There is nothing not to like!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was excellent as were the staff and beautiful garden and restaurant. If you stay at the Avli you could not wish for a more stunning hotel and location.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was very clean and beautiful and food was really good. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful especially Stelios (reception) who is btw a total cutie <3 for whom u will wanna come back for hehehe.He helped us a lot to find great places to have fun in rethimno and we hug him and thank him for his help. Oh and the jacuzzy was great and u have a great view of the city there as well.
Cons: I dont have anything negative to say about this place everyrhing was amazing.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was incredibly helpful, the location is perfect and close to a car park (20€ for 2 days), they gave us a wonderful welcome aperitif, and even prepared breakfast for us the evening before a very early departure and made packed lunches for our hike with local produce! Both restaurants are great : the food at the main restaurant (also called Avli) is amazing and the food at their Cretan tapas bar (raki ba raki) was also very good and great value for money. Make sure to try the wine too!!
Cons: Loved everything !
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was magic - the room, location and service was really amazing. Special shout to Stelios who was just fantastic with communications before arrival and equally welcoming after we arrived. On our last day, we had an early 7am departure and Stelios had prepared a little takeaway breakfast feast the evening before - we had not requested it so it was a lovely touch and epitomised the service. We would love to return!

Blue Sea Hotel Apartments - Rethymno - Building

Overview Reviews
With a stay at Blue Sea Hotel Apartments in Rethymno, you'll be on the beach, within a 5-minute drive of Fortezza Castle and Town Beach. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: First of all I need to make mention of how friendly and helpful the staff were! Extremely accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. Even went as far to contact travel agents when some of our travel plans were interrupted by bad weather. Rooms were very large and we had a balcony looking directly onto the beach. The value for money was insane! It is a little bit of a walk to the old town but the beach is right across the road and there are more than enough shops and restaurants nearby should you want to stay close to the hotel of an evening,
Cons: There really was nothing to complain about! Everything was great.
10,0 Excellent

8,8 Excellent
Pros: The property is well located near lots of restaurants and a lovely beach. Owner Elias and all staff were welcoming and very accommodating and awaited our arrival even though it was after midnight. Staff ensured our apartment was cleaned each day and were very friendly. We were also treated very fairly as we unable to arrive on the reserved date due to bad weather and we were not charged for the extra day.
Cons: I think a couple of additions could improve the comfort of guests by adding a bunch of staples in the kitchen cupboard, for example, salt, pepper, sugar and some basic condiments would avoid having to buy even the minimum amount that is more than needed for a short stay.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is a pretty island style building, and the owner is very friendly. We had an excellent and well equipped room a little withdrawn from the road and with a marvellous view of the blue sea.
Cons: The beach road is rather noisy and not very pleasant the closer you get to the centre.

Cons: Bed a little on the firm side for us but did not spoil our stay would visit again.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Location right in town which is what we wanted. It was only an overnight stay so we were not bothered about a pool etc. This was more 'boutique'. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was in a little courtyard.
Cons: i could not shut the window that looked into the centre of the hotel, but that may have been my mistake. As it was only one night and we took our valuables with us, it did not matter. I am not that keen either on glass bathroom doors, although it was not clear glass!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The Bellagio is in a perfect location in the old town with all the great places to eat close by and the beach a 5 minute walk away. Our room was immaculate and we had an excellent nights sleep on the very comfortable bed during our stay. Breakfast was always very good with a wide selection of local fruit, pastries and produce plus the omelettes which were very special and tasty. What made the stay special for us was our hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them and they were always available to speak to and help with advice on where to eat, which beaches to visit and with all round good local knowledge. If you are staying in Rethymno the Bellagio should be top of your list to stay in. Excellent!

10,0 Excellent
Pros: I was here for 1 week, and felt so welcomed by staff from the moment I checked in. It was hard to leave. All around staff are friendly and with smiles. It does help that hotel is not overcrowded as not too big. Nikolita and Mario working the outside bar are great hosts. Can spend hours just having chats with them. Location was fantastic as the beach is around the corner. There were few occasions where I missed dinner service hours due to travelling. However, there's a great spot Sofias around the corner that do Greek cuisine at great price. Location is great too! about 30 minute walk to old town of Rathymno, 5 euro taxi trip or electric scooter. Nights spent in Bora Bora beach bar (5 minutes from hotel) and LUX in old town. Do recommend, Rooms are extremely clean! Loved the fact bathroom and shower units are separated. Air conditioning in room is very effective, were couple of nights where I underestimated and did get cold.
Cons: I had a car rented, it's very rare to find parking in front of the hotel. Ended up parking by the beach just a short stroll away.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Staff ., breakfast, dinner by the pool the room very nice Great
Cons: I can't fault this lovely hotel. Will be back for sure.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were some of the most friendly and efficient we have encountered anywhere. Tables were cleared and reset quickly at meal times and food constantly replenished. The newly refurbished bedrooms are immaculate and have everything you could need. Great air con and very comfortable beds. The food is good and plentiful, the food at the Greek night in particular was very good. Worth paying extra for half board and nothing is too much trouble for the staff here. The hotel clearly reads its guest reviews and acts on the feedback it receives. I noticed some changes had been made to address previous minor grumblings about unpeeled fruit for example...! Struggled to fault this hotel and any minor criticism is intended constructively as we had a great time
Cons: Not much! The hotel doesn't have parking and the streets nearby are very busy with cars but we always managed to find a space. The step into the hot tub area could be better marked as it is difficult to see when the bubbles are switched on. An option for house wine would be good. I am being very picky here though, as it was great!
9,2 Excellent
Pros: It was very nice hotel. The location was excellent!!! The hotel was very close to the beach, supermarket, restaurants and a short walk to the old Town. Some rooms were renovated and they looked very comfortable and modern. The rooms were cleaned every day. WiFi works perfectly in the hotel also at the beach. Breakfast was very ok and coffee was good. Kids loved that there was a choice of pancakes or waffles every morning. The tables were cleaned and reset quickly during meal times. Dinner costs 8 euros (4 euros for kids) and it´s cheaper than to eat in the city. I liked pool area. Rethymno is very nice city!
Cons: Some rooms were renovated, but some rooms weren´t and these didn´t look modern and had terrible lighting (not cozy).
9,2 Excellent
Pros: It's been 1.5 months since we stayed in Bio, and we still have only the good memories. Staff was very friendly, helpful, always smiling and playing with kids. We had a room on the 1st floor and it was facing the pool & the playground - and we think it was really great as a family with small kids we could not go out in the evening to enjoy the evening show, but we could see it from our balcony. The kitchenette was fully equipped with everything you need. The pool was superb - always clean and warm. We stayed in mid-June, and there were always enough sunbeds. There were also free inflatables, and kids could use them anytime. The best thing was that 6 out of 7 nights, the pool was open from 9pm to 11pm. We could enjoy swimming under the stars in super warm pool. The hotel is very close to the beach, restaurants and shops. Food in the restaurant was delicious (at least for adults). The choice wasn't great, but it would change every single day. It was good that there was a choice of pancakes or waffles every morning. Pizza on one of the days was amazing.
Cons: Bathroom needs renovation especially the tub (!) - it was very rusty. The cleaning service was overall good, but I didn't like dust under the beds and not that clean tub. I would add 2-3 kids-friendly meal choices - our kids were not the only ones that could not choose anything from the restaurant. They refused to eat anything other than pasta or chips.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Cliean, friendly, renovated, spacious, cozy. Great pool area - beautiful lights in the evening. Good breakfast!

Pros: The hotel room given to us exceeded our expectations staff were extremely friendly and we were welcomed with drinks fruits a bottle of wine and some greek sweets as we entered our room. it was more than amazing cleaned every single day so quite with such lovely guests who stay there. Everyone working there is extremely considerable and polite food was absolutely amazing pool clean and all together a relaxing quiet modern and luxury hotel. Would definitely recommend the suite with jacuzzi had the best holiday ever out of many. the town is so close by and the beach is one road away. definitely looking forward to coming back.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The staff is very helpful and friendly (and i include everyone here, reception desk but also bartenders, cleaning staff or restaurant people) and made the stay amazing all along, also the pool is great, premises are excellent, just like the location, very close to the beach but at the same time really quiet, last but not least room was spacious, bed very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was always yummy, varied, fresh and tasty.
Cons: Some people might be less happy with the dinner buffet, but it's harder to make people happy that way than with the breakfast and in my opinion the staff did a great job with a Greek night with typical gyros, so even if it was a challenge, you could tell they made sure to try and make residents as happy as possible.

8,5 Excellent
Pros: The location is ridiculous, you are short walk from all the things worth doing in Rethymno. The atmosphere the room creates is also beautiful.
Cons: Room 101 was close to the dining area, so light sleepers could get woken up by diners. Shower is quite small by American standards, but what isn't in Europe? Parking is also not particularly close. It's a little difficult to check out earlier than 8AM.
5,0 Okay
Pros: Location and friendly staff on check in, dinner was nice.
Cons: Need to improve the breakfast we gave up and ate breakfast in the town. Tiny bathroom for size of room and really needed updating.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The actual building is very nicely redone.the ladies at the reception very helpful & polite.
Cons: There was no chair to seat in the room, only a stool. There was a comfortable closet but no drawers. The service of the lady in the restaurant was mediocre.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Cozy antique construction converted to hotel. Excellent located in the middle of the old city although a bit far (2km) from sandy beaches. The local restaurant offers good dishes but a bit expensive compared to the plethora of other offers surrounding the hotel.
Cons: The sleeping room #108 has both windows facing the stairway patio which is covered and so, no fresh air can enter. The only way was to let the livingroom door open and to get some through the livingroom window. The old town has vehicle circulation restriction and so be prepared to carry your luggages from the parking place (outside old town) up to the hotel.

Pros: Marinos was a wonderful host. The apartment was very spacious and clean, the beds very comfortable and the location just perfect, right in the old town of Rethymno. We enjoyed our stay a lot!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Right on the seaside and next to old port and old town of Rethymno - could not be better! Very spacious and clean with fantastic view from the front balcony. Lots of space for 5-6 people, very comfortable living room, spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen. We just loved it! Definitely a place to stay if back to Rethymno. Host was very helpful on our arrival carrying our bags as no close by parking is available - thanks!
Cons: We did not manage to switch on AC in couple of places but that was not major issue. Probably would be solved by host but we only stayed 1 night. No long term parking available close by though possible to stop to unload the luggage
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The apartment is in an excellent location in the heart of the old time. Beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds . Particularly loved the front bedroom with the lovely balcony where we enjoyed a glass of wine in the evening . Appreciated the welcome pack and delivery of fresh bread and pastries . This one of the best places we have stayed in and would definitely stay again . Marinos was there to meet us and offer useful advice on the local area.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: The property is well located close to all major city attractions- good for shopping, sightseeing, or just chilling at local tavernas. The owner was very helpful and hospitable.
Cons: The only downside (especially for those with kids) that bars and tavernas facing the sea can be quite noisy till late
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and well-decorated apartment. Very well equipped. We appreciated a lot the fresh bread and the coffee machine, very useful for the breakfast.
Cons: Although the city is not big, arriving at night was not so easy. However, Marinos was kind and came to us by bicycle to then go with us to the apartment that was in the end very close.

Pros: Amazing apartment in the heart of Rethymnon. Super attention to detail and a wonderful host. I can highly recommend the place.

With a stay at Blue Sea Hotel Apartments in Rethymno, you'll be on the beach, within a 5-minute drive of Fortezza Castle and Town Beach. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: First of all I need to make mention of how friendly and helpful the staff were! Extremely accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. Even went as far to contact travel agents when some of our travel plans were interrupted by bad weather. Rooms were very large and we had a balcony looking directly onto the beach. The value for money was insane! It is a little bit of a walk to the old town but the beach is right across the road and there are more than enough shops and restaurants nearby should you want to stay close to the hotel of an evening,
Cons: There really was nothing to complain about! Everything was great.

Cons: Cold shower first morning but they fixed immediately
8,8 Excellent
Pros: The property is well located near lots of restaurants and a lovely beach. Owner Elias and all staff were welcoming and very accommodating and awaited our arrival even though it was after midnight. Staff ensured our apartment was cleaned each day and were very friendly. We were also treated very fairly as we unable to arrive on the reserved date due to bad weather and we were not charged for the extra day.
Cons: I think a couple of additions could improve the comfort of guests by adding a bunch of staples in the kitchen cupboard, for example, salt, pepper, sugar and some basic condiments would avoid having to buy even the minimum amount that is more than needed for a short stay.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is a pretty island style building, and the owner is very friendly. We had an excellent and well equipped room a little withdrawn from the road and with a marvellous view of the blue sea.
Cons: The beach road is rather noisy and not very pleasant the closer you get to the centre.

Pros: This hotel is very well positioned (max 5 minutes walking to the beach, to restaurants, to shops and a super-market). It has a very friendly staff and owner and also a very good breakfast. It's the perfect place to stay and relax with your family. You can stay at the pool and have a drink at the bar or you can go to the beach. Our time here was great!
Cons: Just one suggestion: the light bulbs in the room should have warm colors, the current blue-neon lights are a little bit not welcoming.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Location suited our needs (we were going to a wedding locally). Pool was very good with Roman steps. Parking just outside. Short walk to the beach, shops, cafes and bars. Bed was comfortable, and bathroom newly renovated. Staff were friendly.
Cons: There was an smell of damp and drains each time you opened the door to our room. The breakfast location was good - outside. However the quality of the coffee/orange/juices were poor. If you arrived towards the end of the breakfast period there was only a limited selection.

Pros: The staff were all very nice and Incredibly helpful. The first room we were given wasn't really suitable for our needs, but we were able to change the next morning for one that was, which was great. The place was very clean and modern and the breakfast was amazing. Our flight was leaving late so we also managed to get a room for the day which was a great help with two kids! the high reviews are totally deserved. I can't recommend it enough.
Cons: The WiFi signal in the rooms was pretty poor. The draught beer at the bar is not great.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We absolutely loved this hotel and it exceeded both our expectations. It was a last minute booking as we were in the area and we weren’t expecting much. The price we paid proved to be amazing value for what we got; from facilities, the amazing room which was new, super clean & super modern design and amazing comfort. The included breakfast with lots of in house baked food & jams and great selection. We were also surprised at the level of hospitality and professionalism of all staff. This is a family owned hotel who have worked very hard to build this business and really appreciate every guest. The gift upon check out was unexpected and very much appreciated.
Cons: We genuinely don’t have a single complaint.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: It is a quite family hotel which was exactly what we were looking for. The apartment was very comfortable and implacably clean. A beautiful beach just 5-10 min walk away form the hotel is another bonus. I would be happy to go back and can definitely recommend this hotel to everyone who is looking for a quite family vacation!

Pros: Almost everything. The room was excellent.
Cons: Would feel a bit better if our every move wasn't watched by the owners
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Our first visit to Crete so we were unsure what to expect in terms of the area we chose. Maybe because it was September, most tourists in Platanias were over 40 so it suited us perfectly! Amazing apartment - modern design and high-end finish , spotlessly clean, everything needed supplied. Staff were lovely - friendly and helpful yet not obtrusive or pushy. breakfast fine. location excellent for exploring region - easy access to Rethmyno by bus or an enjoyable walk along the coast. We stayed in Mary Hotel for 2 weeks and never got bored. great restaurants and bars nearby with lots of veggie options. fantastic beach a short stroll away. Overall would recommend for a relaxing holiday with plenty to do and see when you want to - take a trip to the south coast, its beautiful!

Pros: it was a lovely hotel we had been staying up the coast and decided to stay in Rethymno for one more night and found your hotel. The staff were lovely the hotel was very clean and it had a lovely pool and a nice bar and great beach and also great value for money
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is on the first line and provides its clients with the sun beads and umbrellas. The room was quite OK, with nice large bed and a balcony. However, the large bed did not have one mattress on it, but two separate mattresses, which should be noted, but it did not disturb us a lot. The breakfast was nice and had choices of hot, cold dishes, fruits and sweets. Besides, it is very nice to have a breakfast on the summer terrace facing the sea. Also the hotel has nice pool, which was nice when the sea was stormy. The pool bar serves good drinks.
Cons: When choosing the hotel by stars, you expect not only services that could be provided, but a certain level of accommodation. The furniture was quite outdated and the bathroom was also quite uncomfortable with a narrow bathtub, which made showering not too comfortable with the curtain sticking all over you. Besides, the bathroom did not have a built-in ventilation, but a window, which was obviously facing the neighbors balcony, and when our neighbors smoked our bathroom was full of the cigarette smell.

Pros: Very comfortable hotel. Very attentive and frienbdfull personnel. Simply absolutely was better then great. Very good service everywhere

9,6 Excellent
Pros: The property was beautiful and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was large and plentiful with many local options as well. The pool was fun, but chilly. There’s a small children’s area of the pool. Our room was fantastic and large with a full kitchen including a dishwasher. The balcony was large and the view to the water and the fortress in Rethymnon was beautiful. Our kids loved the jetted bathtub. We loved the location with simple access to a small, protected beach across the road.
Cons: We thought this place would be fantastic for kids with the large suite-style rooms, but it really wasn’t ideal for young kids. The indoor pool is not available for kids because it is part of the spa, so even though it was chilly outside, our kids couldn’t use the indoor pool. The clientele was mostly older, so they were not very friendly to our kids swimming even outdoors or playing near the pool. Our suggestion would be to allow kids the opportunity to swim during a few hours a day in the indoor pool in case of inclement weather outside. Overall it was a very nice place, just not the best for our family.

Pros: Everything is good and worth visiting it
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Staff is very professional, friendly, supportive. Especially the Restuarant & reception staffs. Location in Rethymno. On the beach + 10 mins walking to the old harbor market & restaurants. Hotel Beach. Balcony View :) Renovation of interior design of the hotel & rooms with new furniture.
Cons: Keeping the old elevator design.It is a two door system. But if you like a touch of “boutiqueness” it is fine & does the job. Only two parking spots are reserved for all the guests of the hotel considering Crete as a destination that needs a rental car. In case of no parking, which happened four times during our week stay, Which is a pain if you don’t find a side parking near the hotel or parking in the free parking side of the port + 7 mins walk.
