Mitsis Rinela Beach Resort & Spa - Gouves - Building
1
9.5 Excellent (7,478 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Nestled on the beach, this Gouves property is within 3 mi (5 km) of Cretaquarium, Gouves Beach, and Dinosauria Park. Watercity Waterpark is 2.4 mi (3.9 km) away.
5.0 Okay
Cons: Aside from a confortable bed, nice clean sandy beach and pool, everything was mediocre, most certainly not worthy of 5 stars. The service was rushed, felt like mass processing, the food was nothing special, the room was run-down, the shower in a small bathtub, the complementary wifi was unusably slow, the room's air conditioning was useless. Overpriced for what's offered, definitely cannot recommend this.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great food options,fabulos only adults sushi bar and very nice chinese and greek restaurants. Swimming pools are clean and well maintained.as is the garden too. Entertainment in the evening is high-class. Bed is comfortable and see is amazing, you have everything here for a perfect vacation!
6.7 Good
Pros: The staff was overall very friendly and housekeeping was good. Futhermore the pool area is really nice. They serve fresh waffles there and these waffles were good.
Cons: The price-quality ratio was not really balanced. This is a 5 star hotel, but it did not live up to it. The rooms were outdated, we had a sea view room, and altough we saw the sea slightly (you needed to look over the rooftops of other rooms), it did not meet our expectations. Also the food was not as great as you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Yes, there were plenty of options, but everything was a bit plain and just not great. The fitness club is not a gym, but a fitness area which is completly empty, however you can do yoga there and stetching. Lastly the spa had a weird cancellation policy. If you wanted to cancell your appointment in the spa, you couldn't get your money back, even when cancelling 48 hours is advance! This information was written nowhere, also not on the receipt. Luckily I could change the date, but still this is very odd.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great territory, good staff, tasty food. Great choice if you come with kids.
Cons: Changing pool towels is limited - in the morning and in the evening, and you can’t take more than one pool towel per person.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We liked everything about this hotel. It's a rare gen. Nice staff, smooth processes by the hotel and staff. Great rooms and cleaning service. Comfortable rooms. Food is really good. Great choice of extra restaurants. Fruits for kids at each meal and on the beach. Great shallow beach. Enough chairs. All kind of deserts during the day for adults and kids. Very clean pools. Live music every night. Mini disco and face painting for kids every evening. You basically can just enjoy and have nothing to worry about. The biggest bonus for adults was the included WINE and SUSHI bar. The wines were really good. Excellent service. Bus stop very close to hotel so you can visit Heraklion.My best experience with all in ever.
Cons: Nothing to mention really. Just weird that they ask everyone for a booking confirmation at the entrance when they should have you in the system already. Anyways something minor compared to the best experience ever! This is not related to the hotel but the landing path of planes is above the hotel. You can't hear anything in the rooms just on the beach. Great for the kids. They actually enjoyed looking at all the planes.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: I liked the Swiming pool and the restaurants also I like the breakfast it was amazing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was a great size with all the facilities you could hope for.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Service was excellent in all departments.
7.9 Good
Pros: stunning building architecturally; gives a truly memorable first impression and a relaxing ambience for the stay - the main restaurant is beautiful with a water feature - lovely beach and enormous pool. The best pool I have ever seen in a hotel - excellent spa - good range of treatments and professional staff - the beach bar is beautiful. I have very good memories of stunning sunsets over a cocktail - the staff - all extremely kind, friendly and welcoming ( except for housekeeping but that is normal) - the quality of food in all the restaurants was first class. Although expensive I enjoyed the food in all particularly the asian and the cretian
Cons: the rooms - on arrival I was “upgraded” to a family suit. I thought this was odd given I was on my own and really didn’t need 4 beds but I said nothing. It soon became apparent that I had been given a lower quality room as they clearly needed to get rid of them and assumed I would not complain. The room was dark, dingy and old. It was also on the ground floor so as a lone female I felt unsafe leaving the terrace door open. I asked to move and was moved fairly quickly to a smaller but infinitely nicer room. I was just angry that I had booked that room in the first place but got “upgraded” to a worse room - service at breakfast in certain areas of the restaurant was appalling. I waited 35 mins one day for eggs and regularly 15 - 20 mins for a coffee. Not acceptable - as a solo traveler I never got offered the best seats in the restaurants and always got worse service than other tables - housekeeping was late and inconsistent. Sometimes it did not arrive until 3-4 pmwhich is far too late if you want to use the room in the afternoon - wine in the restaurants was eye watering my expensive - 17 euros was the cheapest in the Italian and steakhouse for 75ml!!! I didn’t know a measure that small even existed in a licensed bar - location - the hotel is really in the middle of nowhere. Great if you have a car but if not you fee quite isolated as nothing is within walking distance. The bus stop with hourly bus services to bigger towns is about 10 mins walk away - also I found it a bit shocking being asked to pay my whole accommodation bill within 5 mins of arriving! Usually a card is given for a guarantee but not the full payment. In addition on my last day reception rang me asking what time I would be leaving as someone else wanted my room early! Again a bit shocking to be asked this when I had another 24 hrs to go of my holiday
10.0 Excellent
Pros: fantastic staff and service very very helpful from arrival and all the time we spent in the hotel nice room nice view
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: The facility is beautiful and clean. The pool is large and excellent for swimmers. The ocean is terrific
Cons: Our reception was horrible. Upon getting to the room we noted it smelled of smoke. They then argued with us when we asked to see if there was another room. They have multiple restaurant types, one of which is Greek. On two days of our stay we were told the Greek restaurant was closed because of low numbers of reservations. We were encouraged to eat in the Asian restaurant. I wondered if we were actually in Greece. Upon arrival we found out that there is no restaurant where a man could enjoy a dinner without wearing long pants. And here I thought we were at a really nice seaside summer resort. How dumb of me...For the most part the staff was cold and almost non-caring. This place has no SOUL. We do not recommend the hotel to anyone.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is amazing and staff is friendly most things in hotal is not allowed pets
7.5 Good
Pros: Great staff that is very welcoming, always helpful and with a smile. The hôtel is itself very beautiful and If you want a restful and calm location with only the sea nearby it’s definitely for you.
Cons: There is nothing nearby. You need at least a 10 minute drive to get anywhere.

7.5 Good
Pros: Room was gorgeous , had a swim up room with a mezzanine bedroom Drinks ok , the ones from the pump are weak and you are only allowed 2 from the bar Food was lovely and lots of choice 5 minute walk to the beach Lion and James are great ( entertainment staff) Pools and slides are great and so was the lifeguard
Cons: Some staff are sullen It’s very busy especially in the restaurants at mealtimes Didn’t bother with the entertainment but what we saw was audience participation
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: Was very bad indeed, travelled with an infant and they put us as far from all the facilities as possible.
Cons: Food very bad, all inclusive but very very poor options! Would never recommend this hotel unless you pay $100 for a week stay
8.8 Excellent

Cons: Entertainment
10.0 Excellent

9.5 Excellent

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The food was plentiful and very good. Lots of variety. Great for the kids. The entertainment team were great but I think they need a club for young adults.
Cons: Nothing
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very clean & comfortable
Cons: Nothing it’s was great
5.8 Okay
Pros: The hotel itself was nice, they had alot to offer for entertainment, kids disco, bingo, fire show etc. The staff was friendly and approachable. The hotel was close to a small market so you didn't have to walk too far for a supermarket etc. You also don't need to walk far to find a beach. The rooms had air con and heating which was very helpful in October as the days were warm and the nights were chilly. The room also had a mini fridge which we didn't expect but was nice to keep our drinks cool.
Cons: The room didn't feel clean on arrival, bits sticking to feet and a dirty towel left in the cupboard that seemed to be covered in hair dye. Stains on the sofa bed cover. Complained to reception and they sorted it promptly. Alot of the games weren't working, pool tables, air hockey tables etc so had to wait for availability for the ones that did work. The food was very repetitive, pork almost everyday. The drinks were very watered down, even the cola tasted like slightly fizzy water. Our room was located in a block where we had to keep walking by one of the pools, this wasn't very convenient for us as my mum has mobility issues and the floor was very slippery by the late afternoon/ evening. Our curtains were way too long for our window, they were dragging along the floor by atleast 30cm which looked messy, we also had a poor view from our balcony of nothing but one of the other hotel blocks sitting right across from us. The hotel can also be very dark at night, when we first arrived my mum who has poor eyesight really struggled to see where she was going. It didn't help that some of the ramps were quite steep.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I would like to start my review for this resort by thanking all the staff that works here for the lovely time and quality of service that was provided to all of us, regardless of our nationality or orientation.... Indeed, the resort had mainly french guests when we visited, but this wasn’t an impediment to have a really great time at the restaurant, bar, piscine or even at the kids club. Many activities for everyone and every age group :) you just have to have an open mindset and enjoy every bit of our multinational world that we’re living in. Saying this I think that’s time to learn more then one language and be more flexible and tolerant. We loved this place as they treat you equally and offer constantly a wonderful place to play, relax/train, recover from the daily stress and enjoy some great greek food or traditional greek entertainment. Definitely recommending the team who’s offering you a nice family photo shoot in the exotic garden (they are very friendly and easy going) -> GO FOR IT! The restaurant is at superlative! Amazing food and great variety. Thank you too all the staff that made our food experience so much better then we’ve imagined. Thank you to all the lovely ladies who kept our son entertained at kids club and for the fantastic play that they presented us at the end of the week. Clean room and very polite staff all around. Definitely a recommendation and definitely a return :) Kind regards Andreea&Emanuel
5.4 Okay
Pros: I liked the food very much. Every day something different.
Cons: I did not like the location. It is too far from all things. It is a hotel for French people, not the rest of the world:((( Also, the swimming pool is very cold, and it should be heated, even though it is October.
6.5 Good
Pros: The staff are lovely. Very helpful. Food is excellent.
Cons: The fridge is rubbish and made no difference whether on or off. The air conditioning wasn't adequate for a temperature of 24 degrees and we had to sleep with the door open every night. The room looked nothing like the brochure. Quite shoddy in fact.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Food mainly salty . Water should be free . I guess by using a spray before wiping the table will be the right way to clean , not just wipe with the same wet 'chiffon' with germs .
Cons: See above
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We spent a lovely time in Hara Ilios Village. The staff did their best to make our stay pleasant (we especially liked Nora and a young receptionist in glassess) . The hotel is clean, well-equipped, has a nice pool, and a relaxing drink bar with life music in Tuesday. We were half-board: breakfast was decent and there was a variety of foods for dinner - most of dishes were tasty; also, there were many vegetarian options available.
Cons: Overall, food was tasty. However, sometimes there was too much salt in dishes that made them inedible (e.g., tzatziki). It is understandable taking into account that it was a buffet, but it would be nice to improve it.
7.1 Good
Pros: Good food, relaxed

Spacious rooms, very good lighting, comfortable bed, nice decoration, fancy lobby. Staff were always smiling, very warm people. We were only there for two nights but wish we could have stayed longer.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: friendly staff, very clean, good meals. Georgia was very kind and professional lovely hotel
7.9 Good
Pros: The food was quite nice.
Cons: Plastic cups and saucers in the bedroom, would have expected better in a four star hotel. The gym was closed up and unlit, but I assume you could have asked for it to have been opened and the same for the sauna which was poor as I’m sure people wouldn’t want to wait for it to heat up. Would also have expected entertainment each evening.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was lovely, great location and spotlessly clean
Cons: It was all good but there was a mix up with the rooms so you should stipulate exactly what you want and make sure your requirements are confirmed, I did exactly this but the hotel still failed to honour my request!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: I like staff very much.they was so friendly and very welcoming thanks for everything
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great resort with amazing staff. Trully helpful and accommodating. Particularly, Nena at the restaurant was wonderful. She made my stay memorable there. Ample parking outside the hotel. Lots of activities. The half-board /all-inclusive options are definitely worthwhile with great variety and good quality food. Definitely recommend this place!
Cons: Overall, a great hotel. There were 2 things that surprised me for this type of hotel. 1) In the room bathroom, there was no bathtub, no shower cabin, nothing! Just the tiles and a pipe on the floor collecting water. Although a very modern and spotless clear room and bathroom, this was inconvenient during and after a shower. 2) when I needed to use the room service there were various delays which uncovered some disorganisation between reception and restaurant.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff were so friendly and the facilities were great. All inclusive food was great. We were only there for two nights but wish we could have stayed longer.
Cons: No complaints
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We've been to some other 4 star hotels in Crete and we expected poorer standard. This hotel though had everything right to a high standard. Restaurant food was exceptional.
Cons: The only downside was that water in the pool was too cold
5.4 Okay
Cons: The food was bad. The bed was extremely poor and uncomfortable. The location was poor, there was no good possibility to travel properly without a car.

Pros: Staff, food, location were all excellent. Very helpful and friendly and willing to help with any and every query.

Cons: Nothing. Even the breakfast was good
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Second time in the hotel and I am happy customer again .
7.1 Good
Pros: Fairly quiet. Friendly staff. very helpful!
Cons: This out of the way hotel is great if you have a car to tour the Island or just want to stay in the hotel. Not really any local shops and very few good restuarants. Would not recommend for young children but great for the aged.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Third time in this lovely hotel . Happy again with the friendly staff and the great service.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: One of the warmest genuine welcomes I have ever received on my travels. The staff are delighful and do as as much as possible to make your stay feel like you are part of their family. Great seafront location, with clean comfortable rooms. Breakfast options are plentiful and good quaility. Dinner is also available in their Taverna for 12€ ( Buffet style) nice pool and pool bar ( with snacks) and the hotel is just 10 mins walk from the local bus stop, and 5 - 7 mins walk from the beaches. A great hotel, well managed and maintained. I would never look to stay in the area and not try booking at The Golden Bay first.
Cons: Leaving
7.1 Good
Pros: The hotel is not far from the airport and Knossos. I would not spend a week there as there is nothing close around, there are few small sand beaches and few restaurants though. The hotel has a restaurant closing at 8.30 and the swimming pool also close early at 7pm. I expected more in terms of equipment for this 4 star hotel. The swimming pool is ok but not tremendous. The room for the kids was not separated from the kitchen and quality of their bed was far lower than the adults one which in opposite was very good. The rooms at the level of the floor should be avoided as everyone walking by can see inside.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The second appartment was large and confortable with a double bed, a large bathroom and a nice view to the sea very close by
Cons: The first appartement had one bed not big for 2 persons and a small bathroom so we asked the staff to verify if it was possible to change
10.0 Excellent
Pros: bed with no sounds

6.7 Good
Pros: The staff was overall very friendly and housekeeping was good. Futhermore the pool area is really nice. They serve fresh waffles there and these waffles were good.
Cons: The price-quality ratio was not really balanced. This is a 5 star hotel, but it did not live up to it. The rooms were outdated, we had a sea view room, and altough we saw the sea slightly (you needed to look over the rooftops of other rooms), it did not meet our expectations. Also the food was not as great as you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Yes, there were plenty of options, but everything was a bit plain and just not great. The fitness club is not a gym, but a fitness area which is completly empty, however you can do yoga there and stetching. Lastly the spa had a weird cancellation policy. If you wanted to cancell your appointment in the spa, you couldn't get your money back, even when cancelling 48 hours is advance! This information was written nowhere, also not on the receipt. Luckily I could change the date, but still this is very odd.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great territory, good staff, tasty food. Great choice if you come with kids.
Cons: Changing pool towels is limited - in the morning and in the evening, and you can’t take more than one pool towel per person.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We liked everything about this hotel. It's a rare gen. Nice staff, smooth processes by the hotel and staff. Great rooms and cleaning service. Comfortable rooms. Food is really good. Great choice of extra restaurants. Fruits for kids at each meal and on the beach. Great shallow beach. Enough chairs. All kind of deserts during the day for adults and kids. Very clean pools. Live music every night. Mini disco and face painting for kids every evening. You basically can just enjoy and have nothing to worry about. The biggest bonus for adults was the included WINE and SUSHI bar. The wines were really good. Excellent service. Bus stop very close to hotel so you can visit Heraklion.My best experience with all in ever.
Cons: Nothing to mention really. Just weird that they ask everyone for a booking confirmation at the entrance when they should have you in the system already. Anyways something minor compared to the best experience ever! This is not related to the hotel but the landing path of planes is above the hotel. You can't hear anything in the rooms just on the beach. Great for the kids. They actually enjoyed looking at all the planes.

Pros: At first upon arrival the first building is far from the road, the hotel is not one building and the grounds and the pool area is well taken care of.
