#6495 Palazzo Rimondi Aparthotel, Rethymnon

Posted by aarond on 01 December 2005 - 03:42 PM in Explore Crete

I have heard many great reports about Ideon hotel in Rethymn, even though it was 3* it is supposed to be a great location and really nice, great value looking unto the harbour.



#6476 Honeymoon In Rethymno

Posted by aarond on 28 November 2005 - 02:00 PM in Explore Crete

Hi all,

As you all have the best knowledge of this beautiful Island I want to be a knowledge leach!! Once again!!!

I think I fancy Rethymno for our honeymoon. It looks beautiful, with nice harbour, lovely beaches, nice restaurants and bars with a good selection of hotels.

What I would love is to hear real reviews on hotels / accom in this area. I am hoping to stay within 2-2.5km (2miles) of the town centre. We will hire a car and explore but at night want to have much fun with my beautiful wife!!!!

I want suggestions!! I normally prefer smaller accom, but want affordable high class accom!! Please give me your reviews and opinion for 27/26 year old in Rethymno !!

*** We have looked at the hotel Pearl Beach Hotel, Theartemis Palace Hotel, Palazzo Rimondi Aparthotel - has anyone got any views??



OH! I've been reading that it is slightly 'tacky' and very 'false' place on another website!
I thought it looked lovely but app it's very 'unGreek'

#6353 Honeymoon In Crete?

Posted by aarond on 07 November 2005 - 03:32 PM in Explore Crete

Ideally we want somewhere:

*which has or is near a really nice beach
*has a nice nightlife with chilled bars and restaurants (nice selection of)- somewhere where you can sit and find new friends to chat and have a laugh till the wee small hours - but not too OTT eg Malia / Laganas in Zante
*Nice mix of couples and no kids on the beers!
*not too quiet - in that it has one or two bars or early closers!

Is it unrealistic?? I heard Platanias, Rethymno and Ag Nik were close??

Thanks in advance

#6324 Things I Love About Crete....

Posted by aarond on 03 November 2005 - 11:57 AM in Explore Crete

As a newbie and someone considering Crete for a honeymoon - what and where should I avoid in Crete? I know of Malia as a kids on the beer place - any others?

I've read (excuse my spelling) Agios Nicholas is really nice and good for a young couple, close to a nice beach etc etc. THEN someone I work with said it was tacky!!!?? We'd even looked at a nice hotel (looks nice in brochure) called Hermes......

I'm confused!



#6323 Honeymoon In Crete?

Posted by aarond on 03 November 2005 - 11:47 AM in Explore Crete

Hello all!!

I am new to this forum and I've never been to Crete, yet.
I am getting married next September and we really fancy Crete as a honeymoon location!!!

We went to Zante this year and we really loved it, the Greek people, the fab food and lovely weather.

Can you experts reccommend a location for mid 20's couple for a honeymoon? We want a nice hotel, but not too posh and expensive (weddings are expensive events!), we would like suggestions for a resort that has 'stuff' to do, but isn't Bris-ified (if you know what I mean?).

We normally go 'budget' for holidays, but want a nice 4* this time for our honeymoon. We always would choose smaller as they tend to be friendly.

I leave it in your experienced and capable hands.....
