We didn't realise that Greece closed at end of October as we had not been for many years, so most of the restaurants & bars were already closed or in the process of closing when we arrived. Not great for Brits going on holiday in the October school hols....we will bear this in mind next time when visiting Greece. However La Stella apartments are in a great location to the village of Platanes which has plenty to keep you occupied & also is a short distance from Rethymno town (taxi 9e) or buses. Babi the bar/complex manager is a lovely guy & will make you feel welcome and go out of his way to accommodate any requests. Would definitely go back but in the summer hols next time 😁
I really like this hotel. It's not too big, the rooms are modern and nice. The attention to detail could have been a bit better, but all in all we loved our stay. We had a room that was not facing the road, wich we appreciated, because it's unfortunately quite noisy.
The breakfast is good, it has got all the elements you need for a good start. And the staff are super-friendly and always helpful and smiling.
They also have a changing room for your departure-day, and they look after your stuff during the day if you want to go to the beach (which is just a short walk away).
I highly recommend the hotel, and would absolutely come back for my next stay.
The hotel was spotless and was tidied and cleaned every morning. The rooms were spacious and nice, no problems at all with the room. The pool was lovely also. In addition to this , the staff were fantastic always willing to help if you had any questions and on many occasions recommended places to go and things to do in around Crete and then booked them for us for a cheap price. The location was great it was a ten minute drive to the old town of Rethymno which cost 9 euros in a taxi, the taxi rank was literally 2 minutes around the corner which we found was useful as well as a Lidl which was even closer than that. Although Rethymno was only so far away we found ourselves often eating in the location the hotel was in. Round the corner from the hotel in Plantes it is was many restaurants, shops, bars which were all lovely. These were a little quieter than Rethymno centre. A few recommendations to eat would be Virginias and Up UNO, but all the places were lovely to eat. The staff at La Stella will also give you these recommendations . Very good hotel will book again next year.
