Mitsis Rinela Beach

Mitsis Rinela Beach Resort and Spa offers luxury hotel rooms in the former fishing village of Kokini Hani, on Crete's popular northern coast. It's a short walk from the nearest beach bars, restaurants and cafes. The hotel has one main outdoor swimming pool, plus two smaller pools for children including one with slides. It offers a range of water-based activities, such as jet skiing and canoeing. There are three restaurants including a buffet restaurant that offers a wide range of cuisines, including an American breakfast, Italian dishes and Lebanese specialities. There are also regular theme nights. Traditional in style, the low-rise buildings have bright white exteriors, with the occasional splash of turquoise in the form of coloured wooden balconies. They're set in gently sloping gardens, with lawns, palm trees and brightly coloured flowers. You'll find a paved pool area, with views across the sandy beach to the clear water of the Aegean Sea. The hotel's neutrally decorated interior is home to an indoor swimming pool and a games room. Bedrooms have patio doors leading onto a balcony or sun terrace. At Mitsis Rinela Beach Resort and Spa, you can attend a fitness class, such as aerobics and aqua aerobics. If you're still feeling energetic, you could also play beach football, tennis or beach volleyball. Alternatively, you could spend the morning relaxing at the hotel's spa, which has a sauna and offers with a selection of beauty and wellness treatments. After sunset, you can watch the family-friendly evening entertainment, which often includes live shows, quizzes and discos.

Mitsis Rinela Beach Resort & Spa is 50m from the closest bars, shops and restaurants. It's a 650m walk from the centre of Kokini Hani, where you'll find a white sandy beach that stretches for 400m. Further afield, it's 12km to the island's capital, Heraklion, where you'll find a historic Old Town, with boutiques and independent stores, next to the early Cretan architecture.

Sleep Quality



Fairly nice, a few things to improve to be a 5*

Jun 2022 | Talon_Toes

Rooms nice, some minor touches to be done as our wall paper coming off. Annoying to have to book restaurants only to find all fully booked for entire trip when on first day, what is the point having nice places if you dint get chance to try them. View lovely and crepe station amazing, Check in was not great and o real introduction in where things were, what programme of activity was on and where to find information. Food in main buffet hall could be better and have more choice if restaurants fully booked, the reception and restaurant could have been renovated in keeping with rest of hotel as looks old and shabby.

Nice family stay

Great hotel for families, everything needed is provided: spacious rooms, big range of food stations, great beach, sea is very clean. Nice water sports at the beach, we tried also spa, was OK. There is a mini club and some daily animation for adults, everyone will find what to do and what to eat here))

We stayed at Mitsis Rinela for 9 nights from 2nd June It’s a lovely hotel but we are a retired couple and we were put in a garden view room with children either side of us and all around so the room was unsuitable as we had babies crying in the night keeping us awake. There were no rooms suitable for us to upgrade to as the hotel was fully booked as it was half term I didn’t realise this when booking as we booked those weeks as it was my husbands 70th Birthday so we were there to celebrate it. Special thanks to Mitsis for the birthday cake and bottle of bubbly it was much appreciated, lovely gesture. The beach is stunning and the staff are lovely each and everyone of them, they work so hard and are so happy and friendly nothing too much trouble. The food and drink is excellent so much choice all branded drinks and Cocktails to die for. All a la carte restaurants are excellent especially the Steak House the waiter who served us was great he was so happy and chatty he gave us first class service. Special thanks to Marianna from the Mists Friends Club Guest Relations who was superb what a lovely lady who went the extra mile in customer service to help us find a solution to solve our problem. After I spoke to the hotel manager who was really lovely and understanding of our problem he went out of his way to make our holiday enjoyable and arranged for us to spend our last 5 nights at the Mitsis Laguna which was incredible thanks you for arranging that. The rooms at Rinela are decorated beautifully but there are no drawers in the rooms so you have nowhere to put anything only wardrobes I think this needs to be looked at. The entertainment is not of a 5 star hotel having previously always stayed at Mitsis Blue Domes in Kos they had fantastic entertainment from Meds Entertainment from the Uk the Jersey Tones, I’ll Divo, and Golden Tones they were singing and dancing groups the guests loved them it really made the holiday. Please booked them next year! Would we return to Mitsis Rinela yes definitely but not in the school holidays and I would book a large seaview room next time. Thank you Mitsis Rinela for going that extra mile in customer service to accommodate us.
