Missiria, Rethymno, Rethymno, Crete 741 00, Greece
Brilliant blue skies. Golden sands. Crystal clear seas. So leave the dreary-grey skies of home behind and head for this delicious slice of Cretan gorgeousness. And with breath taking views over the azure waters and the snow-capped mountains.

We stayed in the ElGreco in July 09 and it is a superb Hotel in all aspects very clean and comfortable. The Food was superb also being locally grown waiters and service also very good. Rooms were to a very good standard and plenty of room with sea views. Entertainment was pretty good with some good acts out of the 7 nights 4 were good 3 were a bit poor. The pool area is nice - only areas to fault this Hotel is that it is a bit quite at night and being away from a town. When we went to the Hotel it was mainly german and dutch there were only 2 or 3 english families as we got o the end of our stay more did arrive however it made it a bit less friendly. The beach is sandy and the sea is clean and warm but the beach is imported sand.

Overall really nice Hotel the layout is superb and very easy to get around we got taxi transfer from Airport watch out for the speed they drive at!

Nice and friendly Hotel, rooms comfortable and cleaned every day, beach towels supplied in each room and replaced as required.Breakfast and evening meal are buffet style, standard and choice of food very good, local specialities are always available. Three sea water swimming pools available, with sufficient sun beds (might be a problem in peak season?) Hotel is overlooking the private sandy beach (sand imported as rest of coast is shingle/rocky.
The downside is location and standard of entertainment. The El Greco is located along the coast from Rethymnon (Bus available outside Hotel every 20 minutes, but the journey takes approx 30 minutes to the centre of Rethymnon.)There is a couple of Tavernas and a Mini Market opposite the Hotel, very little else.
Entertainment was poor and below the standard I would expect from this class of hotel. Most evenings involved the local reps "Animation Team" putting something together. The professional acts comprised of a Latin Dance evening, Synchronised swimming gala and a band.
