Food & Drink

The main restaurant offers a relaxed buffet format at breakfast and dinner with show-cooking and colourful specialty dishes. Comfort is key during your stay at the Aegean Pearl, and you are free to relax on your own schedule, so if you decide to take an extra hour in bed then the late breakfast will be waiting to welcome you into the day. The outdoor a la carte restaurant serves lunch and dinner in a cosy atmosphere overlooking the Aegean Sea for a dining experience to remember. During the day, there’s no need to leave the poolside fun behind when you get refreshments; the snack bar is located right on site and offers freshly prepared Greek and international specialties as well as a selection of drinks. You can also sit back here with your favourite drink as the evening crawls in, where you can watch the sun set over the day.

Please note that shorts, slippers or sports uniforms are not permitted in the main restaurant or a la carte restaurant.

Sports & Entertainment

There is a large outdoor freshwater pool as well as a children’s pool section, all framed by a sun terrace decked with loungers and parasols for the perfect spot to relax for the day. If you want to explore a different setting, then the beach is just on your doorstep, where you can lay back on the golden sands or wander along the shore as the waves foam white. There are a selection of activities to keep you entertained including aqua gym and yoga, table tennis, diving, local watersports, cooking lessons, wine tasting and Greek dance lessons. Additionally, guided walks are available for any adventurers out there, where you can be one with Cretan nature and explore the old town of Rethymno. If you prefer something a little less active for your holiday, then Aegean Pearl has you covered. The hotel spa and wellness centre is home to an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath and multiple massage rooms for a well-deserved, self-indulgent addition to your stay. In the evenings, the animation team will keep you entertained even as the sun goes down, with a selection of shows for you to enjoy, including dancing, magic acts, guitar music and live music from a DJ.
