A truly grand hotel with a well-deserved reputation for excellence. It's not surprising that AQUILA RITHYMNA BEACH, has won more awards from guests and international organisations than any other hotel in Greece. The Cretan village-style garden rooms and traditional main building are enveloped in vast gardens, alive with colour and dotted with mature trees that provide welcome shade from the warm sun. The Rithymna Beach has all the hallmarks of a beautiful Cretan village - from the chapel of St. John to a real olive oil press.

Just as important as the ambience is the attentive yet unobtrusive staff. From maids to managers their quality service with a personal touch is what makes so many guests come back year after year.

This grand hotel has one of the most extensive selections of types of accommodation - from main building rooms, bungalows and suites to Royal Pavilions with private pools!

  • Location

    The Rithymna Beach lies on the 14 km Rethymnon beach. Whilst the hotel has all the facilities of a miniature village, guests may walk to neighbouring settlements (Adele, Aghia Parakevi, Maroulas) or the nearby lively resort village of Platanias.
