Aquila Rithymna Beach, first operated in 1976, is one of the most traditional 5* hotels on Crete. It has 560 rooms built on an area of 80,000 sqm and has implemented sustainability & social awareness long before it became known in the hospitality industry. The family owned hotel had started their vision in the early 80s when tourism started and the multiplier effect started to change the landscape of Rethymnon.

The most important aspects of our success derive from all our esteemed guests, the community where we live and work, our beautiful natural environment, our collaborators and of course from all our valued employees.

With the support and aid from all the above, we strive to protect our heritage and do our utmost to respect and keep our beautiful island attractive and environmental friendly.

Our main goals are:

  • Satisfied customers in all issues
  • A close and fair relationship with all our employees and the community.
  • Protection of our local environment, heritage and landscape
  • Preserve our island for the next generations
