Theartemis Palace is on the seafront in the resort of Rethymnon, on Crete's popular north coast. It's a short walk to Rethymnon beach, where you'll find a long stretch of sand running along to a small harbour. The water of the Aegean Sea is shallow here and popular for swimming. The style of the hotel's low-rise buildings reflects local Greek architecture, with covered balconies and traditional terracotta tiled roofs. They're set in grounds that are dotted with trees and centred around the pool area. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool with a shallower area where kids can play and splash. It's screened from the road by trees and is surrounded by a sun deck where you can sit back and relax. There's also an indoor swimming pool, which is heated during the cooler months. You can enjoy all of your meals at the buffet restaurant and take your pick from two bars, including a poolside bar serving drinks and snacks. When you're in need of relaxation you can head to Theartemis Palace's spa to unwind. If you prefer to stay active on your holiday you can enjoy a workout in the gym, have a game of pool or play table tennis. From the hotel, it's a short walk to the centre of Rethymon, which has an old town with winding lanes and ancient buildings. You can look for souvenirs at the market stalls before stopping for a glass of the local drink, ouzo, at a pavement cafÈ. If you fancy exploring further, you can hire a car and discover the rocky coves, horseshoe-shaped bays and seafront fishing villages for which Crete is known.
From Theartemis Palace, it's a 200m walk to the sandy shores of Rethymon beach, which stretches for 12km. It's 900m from the centre of Rethymnon resort, where you'll find a marina lined with traditional Greek tavernas, seafood restaurants and wine bars. You can pick up holiday essentials at the resort's supermarket, which is 100m from the hotel. Inland, Rethymnon is backed by open countryside rising up to hills. You can hike through the groves of olives and lemons to traditional villages. Further afield it's 70km to the harbourside town of Chania, with its boutiques, street stalls and shopping centres. You can explore the resort's Venetian quarter, where you'll find places to eat and drink amid the maze-like lanes of the old town. If you fancy a day trip, a drive of 79km takes you to the island's capital, Heraklion. You can stroll along the waterfront promenade and paddle at the beach, or hop on a ferry from the harbour to visit neighbouring islands.
The buffet restaurant at Theartemis Palace offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, with kids' options available. The pool bar is open during the day, while the lobby bars serves drink from the morning until late at night. You'll find lots of places to try local cuisine in Rethymon, as well as bakeries selling traditional Greek treats.
You can explore Rethymon's ancient fortress or take a boat trip from the marina. The hotel hosts regular evening entertainment and the resort offers lively nightlife.
