Crete, Rethymno,Grecotel El Greco Hotel

Editor: Mark Lowster

The largest island in Greece, one of the richest in folklore, history and mythology, diversity as well as local flavours, with international awards.  Crete is ideal for those that are not easily pleased simply by sandy and clean beaches, as it offers so much more.  They told us, that it is a place that if you visit it once, you must and will want to visit again.  I therefore intend to return as soon as I get the chance.

Rethymno, with its old town, a sense of the eastern look of the Turkish occupation and the renaissance style of the Venetian architecture, is indeed a “rich” destination.   A walk there is like a trip to another era.  Make sure you pass by the Neratze Tzami, the central church of the city, called “Lady of Angels” and admire some of the finest Venetian mansions.  Enjoy the delicious Cretan delicacies, made with real care, in the numerous tavernas of the Old Town.  Take a swim at Bali, Triopetra, Preveli and at the countless beaches of the area, to suit all tastes.

Where to stay:

Who said that big hotel complexes with their comforts and many stars are only for the few?

The Grecotel El Greco is the ideal hotel, on the ideal spot.  A breath-taking balcony to the sea.  Located in the area of Adeilianos Kabos, in the prefecture of Rethymnon and with a vast beast stretching along, it provides the exact definition to the phrase “perfect holidays”.

It has family type rooms as well as comfortable double rooms with either a pool or a sea view.  In the bathroom, you will find top quality Greek care products and in the rooms, local wine and fruits welcome you.  The pool area is ideal for relaxation and there you can enjoy something from the all-day cafe-bar.  Naturally, provisions for children have also been made, with special activity programs -always with the safety required – and supervision by well trained staff.  However, what makes El Greco unique and friendly is the special care it takes in its staff selection.  Authentic, cheerful people, always willing to serve you. It really justifies everything said about Cretan hospitality. It really makes a difference.
