A quirky 3-star hotel, with an owner to match, it has a mixture of modern, traditional, classic and arty touches. Surrounded by pretty grounds with mosaic floors, it has 2 pools, but the big attraction is definitely the wide sandy beach which it leads straight onto.
Ideal for beach lovers of all ages looking for a hotel which is slightly out of the ordinary with a distinctive, quirky interior.
One main building with various annexe wings, some quite different in style. Attractive main building is painted in peach and white with compact ornate iron balconies. 2 of the annexe buildings appear much older with brown concrete balconies painted with Aztec-style designs. Ivy covers some of the facades and other have large painted murals.
Property type: Hotel
A complete mix of styles, from stylish to eccentric. Reception and lounge areas feature furnishings in different colours, with antique and designer pieces, vibrant accessories and artwork. Main bar is double-sided, opening onto the pool terrace, with many coloured glass lamps hanging from the ceiling and swanky bar stools.
In complete contrast, the restaurant is rather plain, with standard wooden dining sets and large prints on the walls.
Grounds feature pretty flowers and mature greenery with miniature churches, ceramic birds and butterflies and a garden with mosaic tiles and palms. White wicker-style and plastic furniture adorn the pool terrace under wooden shading.
Larger pool has walk-in entry, the smaller pool has metal steps, and there is separate children’s pool. This area leads directly onto the large sandy beach where the hotel has a children’s playground and volleyball court.
Area Type: Golden Beach Hotel is 6 km from Rethymnon in the resort of Adelianos Kampos, directly on the beach, with similar sized hotels in the vicinity. Set forward from the main resort road, which has a choice of restaurants, bars and tourist shops and the bus stop for Rethymnon.
