Mitsis Rinela Beach Resort & Spa - Gouves - Building
1
9.5 Excellent (7,456 reviews)
₹ 9,113+
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 The rooms were outdated, we had a sea view room, and altough we saw the sea slightly (you needed to look over the rooftops of other rooms), it did not meet our expectations.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.

9.6 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.

It has air conditioning, comfy beds, a clean bathroom and sheets, a pool and new poolside facilities (toilets and shower etc) - we weren’t disappointed, we came a few years and stayed at the same place - highly recommended.
Cons: I always prefer when you have 1 bed instead of 2 pushed together but we covered the middle with a blanket so it didn’t matter.

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
Cons: No tea , coffee or water in the room Music was odd
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Super friendly staff. Well located if you have a car. Bigger villages /cities nearby and Heraklion is neither far.

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!

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

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.

Pros: + Delicious full breakfast that could pass for both low-carb and gluten-free. + Amazing location and view -- right across the ocean with only a small, dead-end street intervening + Quiet -- only frequent airplane arrivals to break the serenity + Very close to shopping amenities and a dozen restaurants + Functional air-conditioning + Parking
Cons: - a few minor issues the owners said they would fix - the radio music, while having good ol' rock and roll, could be disruptive to some guests wishing to stay around the pool area. At the far end of the pool with headphones, it didn't bother me. At the near end, I couldn't hear my conversation partner. - my double bed would not be fun for two people desiring intimacy
10.0 Excellent

Pros: We enjoyed the property very much. We are happy to support a family run business.
Cons: Expect a beautiful view of the pool or lovely grounds and if you can, book a second floor for a sea view!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: We arrived late after midnight and was met by one of the family, shown our room and offered a free drink. Our studio was a good size and consisted of beds, kitchen area, small balcony, twin beds, which we requested and a bathroom. There was plenty of shelf space and a drying rack by the small balcony. The main door was very stiff as it was binding on the floor. Air conditioning is free, as is the wall safe, which is very good. The beds were standard singles and were harder than I prefer. The rooms have no TV, which surprised us. The wifi is very good and good enough to watch streaming video and radio. The kitchen area is small and had limited utensils, a good refrigerator, twin boiling rings no toaster, no microwave nor oven. So cooking facilities were limited. The apartments have a bar and snack bar with seating inside and outside eating, which we did not use during our stay. The rooms are cleaned and have new bedding every three days, although in our eight day stay this only happened once. Clean towels are provided every few days. Rubbish is taken away daily. Toilet rolls are not replaced. The bathroom is very tired looking and the door would not shut. All the fittings are old and not maintained well or cleaned throughly. The hotel is a few kilometres from the airport and sits under the flight path, planes pass overhead at 1500ft (500m) so airplane noise is an issue, as it will be for any accommodation in this area. Planes seem to stop flying overnight, from 1am to 6am. Pool is nice with plenty of sun beds and shades, as the area is surrounded on all four sides by buildings and walls the shade extends across the pool area in the morning. We chose this location because there is a beach right across the road from the hotel, but we found that it was very rocky under water so getting in and out of the water had to be done carefully and best done with beach shoes. The hotel provide free sun beds and parasols for guests to use.
Cons: Very little
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice staff, convenient location (just across a local road from the sea, within minutes from the bus stop, supermarkets and taverns), delicious breakfast on request. Excellent pool area. Functional wi-fi and air-conditioning. The room was quite large and clean, with a kitchenette and all kitchenware needed. Great value for money.
Cons: "Hot" water in the shower was hardly warm most of the time. Some noise from airplanes starting in early morning (but interesting to see them approaching to land).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were so dry and helpful. The place is just in a perfect location in the centre of the village. In the high season we have a couple of beaches around almost empty and the swimming pool is located so perfectly that you can have a sun bath all day. It is worth to say that it was exceptionally clean and quite big.
Cons: Can’t think of anything.
4.2 Okay
Cons: The room was smelling bad. The curtains were not black out so you couldn't dressed up with open lights and we were forced to close the lights so anyone could checking us out from outside. For the same reason you woke up from 6 o'clock because you couldn't stop the sun to come inside . Also the bathroom was smelling bad. Not recommended.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: We arrived in the night, near 1.00, and the owner has been nice to wait for us and give us something to drink as welcome. Except this the experience has been a disaster; we came to sleep and the room was awful, small, dirty, furnished with old and ugly furnitures, the bathroom was so ugly.... very disgusting. My kid, a boy of 6, after 5 minutes in the room started wailing and weeping a loud because the condition of the room and the idea to stay there for long time. I've booked for two weeks but after a night without sleeping because my child cries i've reach the idea the situation was impossible to fix. So at the first morning lights i've opened booking.com and i've booked another place for the entire holiday. We took everything and we went to the new place before midday I will not describe with more details the poor state of the room and i will not post photos about it because in the end i had a (small) reimboursement after pressing booking with many phone calls. it's sad to say but the reimboursement has been the best thing i had in this place
Cons: Everything, i had my worst experience in life with holiday rooms, i hope nobody should have such adventure again. The owner it's a nice guy, i'm so sad about this whole thing but i can't stand and i can't stay quiet. My advice to him is to sell everything and come back to London or to find a business mate and renew everything. Man the windows shutters! How can a room at the first floor could not have any window shutters!?! The aircon with the fixed minimum a 25 and no less! You have to remove in the room description air conditioning and put heathing machine!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice clean hotel. Great friendly staff. Good location as buses are regular and can travel anywhere up and down coast for a few euros. Good food places all around. Nice and quiet location. Had an awesome relaxing holiday

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Well where to start, this is without a doubt a great fine, and the Somaras family should be proud of their hotels. Due to a problem with a room we were moved into the sister hotel the Sunset Beach for our first two nights and the room we had was very comfortable and spotless. The food at the Sunset was tasty and plentiful. The buffet style worked and was topped up when running low. The Beach at the Sunset was less than 25 yards and down a few steps. We asked how we would get to the Erato on the Sunday, We were expecting to make our own way but to our surprised we were told that it had been taken care of and we would be collected at 11am on the Monday morning. At 11am prompt we were collected and taken to the Erato. Our room was not ready but we offered a drink and given a brief of the local area and how to get around using public transport. The bus stops are within 25 yards of the hotel and both have the same bus stop number (8). To get to the capital, & airport its 2 euros and Malia its 3.60 euros so using the bus is an easy option. The services are regular about every 15 minutes and some go further than Malia. We had an upgrade to an apartment in the annex which is about 15 yards up the road and you have the use of all the hotel facilities. The food is excellent and tasty and the menus cater for all tastes and ages from 2 - 90. The staff go the extra mile to ensure that your stay with them is memorable. The menus both breakfast and dinner vary each day and have a range of Greek and Cretan dishes, and there is always a pasta option. The hotel had during our stay had a weekly Cretan evening with a Bar B Que and a local dance troop in attendance. This evening was great fun and most of the staff members and guests took part in the dancing. There is limited parking at the hotel and is a mix of off street and on street parking. There is a local mini market and baker within a very short walk from the hotel.
Cons: Nothing

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

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.

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.
