Small but perfectly formed, enough for one person (me!) for a week. Trips available and a taxi service, which was a bonus for the dark nights back to the hotel - I have been in bigger resorts with no available cabs. Prices were overall on a par with home.

There are 3 small and safe beaches in Panormos. The village is quite small and the people very friendly. Try the little train if you can. They have 2 trips of about 4 hours you can take. Well worth the effort.

It's very quiet, family oriented resort. No loud music or anything garish. Calm, traffic free, beach lovely as was every restaurant we ate in. Quite uncommercialised. We have been before and there were lots of familiar faces amongst the restaurateurs and shop owners. Close to places of interest which can be reached by bus which is quick and efficient.

Panormos is a quaint little village. The views are amazing and there is some cute little shops and we had an amazing massage. Rethymon is a bus trip away which is great if you want a bigger town. Overall great for a relaxing holiday.

Hidden gem. Ssshhh don't tell too may folk about it. Quiet and unspoilt, not too touristy. Wonderful as there are no nightclubs. Hope it stays that way! Many restaurants serving great food. Especially Costas in Agyra restaurant on the harbour front. He is also a font of knowledge. Olive Tree cafe bar well worth a visit. Sula serves her own fruits and yoghurt you won't believe how good that is. We will go back. Lovely people. Panormos is well away in fact a world away from hen and stag parties.<br /> Heavens I'm off to book it again, cant wait! Well done all at Sunshine!

The views out to sea and the coastline are wonderful but with little to do in the Panormos area other than a small public beach, it's the hotel that makes the holiday.

A lovely village that still feels Greek. Lots of nice restaurants. The beaches were ok, sandy and the harbour one is very safe for children but did not have the wonderful clear waters of other beaches on the island.

The resort is lovely, a small sleepy little village atmosphere with about 15 restaurants and 3 bars. You can catch a bus into Rethymnon which takes an hour but runs very regularly. Nothing much for children to do other than the beach. No water parks etc - if you want that you need to go to one of the larger resorts. 2 little beaches.

This year will be our 5th year. We love Panormos and have made friends with a local taverna owner. The beach bar is also excellent for lunches.

Still unspoilt and fairly quiet with lots of different restaurants some suiting the young and some wanting a quiet evening meal. Sufficient shops for food and self catering needs, beach stuff and the more expensive jewellery and icons. Half the main beach is monopolised by the big hotel but the beach cafe is great and very friendly and they provide loungers for the other half of the beach. Sea lovely and safe for swimming with a protective breakwater. The big hotel does watersports, jet skis, scuba etc but its a resort for an old fashioned bucket and spade beach holiday.

Panormos was a quiet village with a few restaurants and shops. Nice to walk to from the hotel (about 20 minutes) or catch the train outside the hotel.

It's a place you can do a lot of walking which we did. Only thing for kids is the beaches. Enough bars/restaurants, not expensive, plenty trips on offer and a bus service to the town every half hour.

Beaches

There are two beaches here. The main sandy Limani beach is positioned infront of the village and offers clear and shallow waters which is perfect for families. A good choice of watersports is also available for those that want to spend time on the sea. The second beach, West Panormo Beach, is just 200 metres away and is much bigger.

Nearby Attractions

For those that want to find the livelier nightlife should head to Rethymnon which is a 15 minute drive away where there is a wide choice of bars and clubs open till the early hours.

Quick Facts

Heraklion airport is approximately 60 km away - transfer time about 60 minutes.
