From beaches and food to action and festivities, Crete is a world of its own. What you will love about this island is the way that this sense of fusion extends to a family vacation. Parents want to spend lazy days by the sea and savor local food from the famous Cretan cuisine. Children just want to have fun!

On the north coast of Crete, in the eastern part of the unique town of Rethymnon nestles the Grecotel Plaza Beach House. On the beachfront, with spectacular sea views, this luxury Crete hotel is ideal for guests seeking the best of all worlds- luxurious accommodation with self-catering facilities combined with the resorts’ comforts just a stone’s throw away from the vivid city’s nightlife.

This luxury family Crete hotel is designed like a Cretan Village and reminds of the neighborhoods in the “Old Town” of Rethymno with Creto-Venetian architectural influences. At these spacious apartments, you don’t have to compromise. You can cook that midnight snack in your fully equipped kitchen or enjoy a meal on your private veranda watching the sunset.

Indulge in temptations in the Plaza Restaurant with extensive buffets and show cooking. Relax with a bubbling Jacuzzi in the privacy of your master bedroom or unwind with a massage and aromatherapy in the hotel’s Spa.
