Mitsis Rinela Beach Resort & Spa - Gouves - Building
1
9.5 Excellent (7,372 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 The rooms were outdated, we had a sea view room, and altough we saw the sea slightly (you needed to look over the rooftops of other rooms), it did not meet our expectations.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: The crew was great. The hotel is maintained and managed superbly. Everything was just great.
Cons: Having to deal with ordering places for the restaurants was not a lot of fun. Starting the Kids activities at 8:30 p.m. is way too late. The hotel is located on a pretty dull and mediocre beach and area.

10.0 Excellent

We will remember it for a long time to come.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: the rooms, the food, the staff
Cons: there was no solution for young children who could not swim in the open pools. The covered pool was available only for adults. The reservation system for the special restaurants changed without us being informed, meaning that tables could be booked in advance a few days earlier. As we could not book any of the theme restaurants, we asked the reception for their help, and were given a reply that nothing could be done
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Everything was so clean and tidy and the staff couldn’t do enough. The most beautiful hotel we have ever stayed in...and there has been a few!
Cons: The booking system for al a carte restaurants needs to be improved.
Overview Reviews

5.0 Okay
Pros: The natural setting and the peace.
Cons: The photos are taken by a professional photographer and distort the reality. Only the advantages, not the disadvantages of the property are shown, and these would be: lack of television in the room, lack of cleanliness, great distance from the sea. The two owners seem friendly, but in reality they try to get their guests to participate in the activities required by them: cocktail at the pool, evening meal. It is intended to be an agrotourism guesthouse, but in reality only the cheap decoration of the rooms cannot replace the idea of ​​agrotourism. There are no bathrooms in any of the photos, because these bathrooms are a shame, small, cramped, dirty.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely quiet location with stunning views down to the sea. The rooms were well equipped and everyone there was very friendly and helpful. We were a little worried about travelling with our 1 year old daughter, but everyone was so good with her.

Pros: This was one of the best hotels we stayed at in Crete! Alice and Kat are amazing hosts and you can tell that they have paid careful attention to every detail of the hotel. We ate breakfast at the hotel every day - it was delicious. We also tried a cooking class and ate dinner at the hotel one night, which was lovely. The views from all of the balconies are great, and it is easy to walk to the village or to the water. The pool and poolside bar are also wonderful - Alice is a great bartender. We hope to come back sometime soon for a longer stay!

Pros: We loved staying at St Nicolas Bay Resort because everything was extremely clean, well planned and the staff were not only exceptionally helpful but they were always happy and appeared to enjoy their job including the people at reception, the dinning staff and even the lovely girls who cleaned the rooms.

Cons: Recommend shoes for the beach, not many sandy areas
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The staff. Amazing staff. That is the only thing saving this hotel from being a total nightmare.
Cons: My second and very last time to this hotel. Sometimes went way wrong there. Almost left the hotel after one night, the bed was so bad that could not sleep. They changed my room ultimately, but that nightmare robbed 36 hours from my trip, and that’s not a way to welcome guests. Everything needs much much more attention and care. Old mattresses. Too old. Unsleepable. Smelly pillows. Disgusting!!! Restrooms small and smelly. The thinnest walls or the worst acoustics.either way you will hear everything. All the time. Poor breakfast, bad taste, shameful to Greek’s wonderful cuisine. 3 restaurants in an all inclusive hotel, serving Food that in general is just... so so disappointing. dirty dishes. Bad coffee. Noisy. Too too noisy. Needs cleaning. Location? Well that’s beside the hotel but there is really no reason whatsoever to stay in Chersonissos. Crete is so beautiful and rewarding, Chersonissos is just close to the airport and that is all.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Both breakfast and dinner were great. The facilities were also very good - the pools, the beaches etc. Our room was basic but clean and the beds were
Cons: We were half board which means that you have breakfast and dinner included. Between that you need to take care of yourself. There is an a la cart restaurant, which does not have that much variety, but has a fairly good food. However what I missed was being able to fix a simple snack/meal in our room. That was not possible because there was only a small fridge in the room and nothing else. You couldn't even boil some water to have noodles or cup-a-soup. I have three kids and often they like to have something simple during the day and do not necessarily want to go to a restaurant for every meal.

Pros: Staff was wonderful and quickly responded to any question or issue. Facility was getting ready for its winter hiatus so some of the facilities were not available. we were very comfortable with the villa and the location of the resort. Although not in the mainstream of traffic and chaos it was in a good location to do many things.

7.5 Good
Pros: Staff were very nice and smiley. Nice breakfast, we didn't need much. The hotel area is beautiful, spacious and had a great view.
Cons: Although it was only the beginning of October, the outdoor pools were freezing and impossible to swim in. The pool area was beautiful and spacious, but not practical for swimming.

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.

I would really recommend others to go to Candia Park!

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This fabulous little hotel lives up to the glowing reviews it receives. Thank you to the previous reviewers for bringing it to my attention! We loved its location on the edge of the Med. The beach here is fabulous. How wonderful to slide into the water from the hotel patio for a snorkel, then enjoy a drink from the hotel bar while gazing at the spectacular mountains in the distance. If you must, the town center is an easy walk but this is a place you will not want to venture far from. Our studio room on the ground floor was perfect. Amoundi beach, famous for being an 'almost ' white sand beach is right next door.
Cons: Our stay could only have been improved by extending it. The free parking area between the hotel and the road is a bit challenging but thanks to previous reviews no more so than expected.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Fabulous pool, great location, really quiet but efficient air con, warm welcome from Ioanna....
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good coffee,homemade breakfast.
Cons: Mrs Ioanna needs to be more informed about payments and not pick up the phone just to ask for the time of arrival and say that I will give your room to others, without having a check-in time and booking paid by card and in the morning asked me to pay it again.Thank you for making us sad.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Charming small hotel with a seawater swimming pool which was large for the size of the hotel. Room very attractively decorated in blue and white with front and rear balcony overlooking the sea. Really charming owner. Militos is a really quite place unlike most beachside resorts in Crete so if you really want to get away from tourists this is the place to stay. Also a surprising number of eateries for the size of the place. The only noise is from the waves crashing on the shore close to the hotel. Only 50 minutes to Spinalonga and Knossos so a great central place as well.
Cons: Really loved the place but would have benefited from some easy chairs or sofa bed in the room (rather than the extra single bed). The beach is pebbles with only a small stretch of sand so probably not the best place for those who want a sandy beach.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Stayed before and will stay again. Perfect location. Very friendly. Lovely breakfast including homemade bread and jams. Apartments now have new bathrooms which are excellent. Very happy with our experience. Excellent value for money.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a lovely hotel and I would happily return. Ioanna, the owner, is friendly and very kindly waited for me when I was very delayed in getting to the hotel. It is right by the water and looks out over the tiny harbour of Milatos, you can clearly hear the waves even at the back of the property. Parking is easy, there is lots of space in front of the hotel. The breakfast with fresh bread made on the property was very tasty and there was a good selection of everything.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Good continental breakfast home made bread and jam. Lovely clean salt water swimming pool. Very friendly welcome had a late flight in and was still greeted with a smile as was every day. Clean and tidy apartments great views.
Cons: On a personal note the bed was a bit soft but did sleep well no problem with accommodation, staff a lovely place.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location is great but you have to get a car if you want to travel, because it's on high mountain. The hotel is clean and peaceful, with beautiful view. The people at the hotel are very nice The breakfast in perfect, and in the room there is a kitchen so you can make your own diner as well...
Cons: Everything was great, except for one night the hotel hosted a big party, for 2,000 people in the garden, the music and the fireworks was so loud, as if it was in our room, and it didn't end even after midnight.. we didn't know anything about it from the hotel, and it was surprising. The bed and the pillow is not so comfortable.

5.8 Okay
Pros: Peace and quiet and the views are fantastic. Reception staff lovely.
Cons: Not very clean, very tired furniture in the bar area, bar staff quite rude, very dirty around the eating areas, broken furniture, rooms dated and quite dirty. Beds in rooms need updating and the bathroom mirrors were pealing, no overhead shower. Really disappointed as my last stay was amazing 4 years ago. Needs a full clean & overhaul definitely not 5* It’s a shame as this was once a gorgeous hotel.

7.1 Good
Pros: It has a very good location The pool and entrance is very nice and so is the spa and the treatment is excellent. The staff are really fabulous
Cons: It’s old and tired and austere. The rooms and building need upgrades and modernization for sure. The bed was as hard as nails. The bath was seriously horrid. I was deeply disappointed considering the cost and the adverts were most deceiving. All inclusive is not as good as it is cut out to be. The food is a bit mass catering all edible but not special but don’t get me wrong it was not tasteless either but not my cup of tea.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Fastastic staff, always attentive to our every need and very friendly. The food was very good. The location was amazing, with archeological site (Malia Palace) at walking distance (the hotel is in a protected area so it is surrounded by nature). Monica (guest relations) couldn't do more to help if she tried, reception was very helpful, Michail and his team at the restaurant were very good, the lady who cleaned our room was great. A perfect hotel for families, although our children were adults we observed that the little ones had a fun time and were entertained by a great team. Very good treatments at the Spa. We had a wonderful time staying here.
Cons: At first we found the beds a bit hard but this was quickly fixed and all was well. The rooms could do with a bit of freshening up as would the bathrooms, but this was not a major problem of course. Some of the guests seemed to be up very early to reserve their loungers...!
