    If you're looking for a Crete property that provides an excellent location, top-notch service and an adults-only, all-inclusive atmosphere, reserve a room at Chc Imperial Palace Hotel. This hotel on the Greek island's northern coast boasts proximity to Rethymno's Old Town, a top Crete destination that sits less than 7 miles west. What's more, the property offers access to a pebble beach outfitted with sunbeds and umbrellas. When you're not exploring the island or swimming in the Sea of Crete, lounge by the hotel's outdoor pool, break a sweat in the fitness center or grab a bite to eat at the full-service restaurant, which serves a variety of American fare and Mediterranean cuisine. Although past patrons gave mixed reviews about the eatery's dishes, which room rates cover, many praised its hospitable staff, who regularly went out of their way to make diners' meals memorable by accommodating seating requests and serving extra treats for special occasions. After satiating your appetite, retreat to your guest room or suite. All 74 accommodations feature modern decor (think: geometric light fixtures on the ceilings and cool stone slabs on desks and behind headboards), plus amenities like satellite TVs, minifridges, furnished balconies and free Wi-Fi access.
