The Aquila Rithymna Beach looks out over Crete’s longest beach, a sandy stretch with a coveted Blue Flag. And it’s only a 10-minute drive away from ancient Rethymnon Town.
This hotel has been designed in the style of a Cretan village, so it has a spacious set-up of whitewashed restaurants and bars.
You’ve got 4 outdoor pools to choose from. The biggest snakes its way under bridges and around little islands, and there’s another pulled up right next to the beach.
The hotel is next to a beach that rolls out for miles. Its sands are well-stocked with sunloungers, showers and a canopied beach bar*.
FOOD & DRINK
With 3 restaurants and the same number of bars, this place goes all out at mealtimes. The main eatery offers international buffet spreads.
Themed nights at the hotel’s Greek tavern* are really popular. Everything from lobster to grilled meat is included in the buffet spread here.

Activities like aqua gym and aerobics are hosted on the pool sun terrace.
Evening entertainment includes themed nights showcasing a range of professional dance acts.
