First, the staff was outstanding- Anna, Dmitri and Jaba made our stay. We arranged for a car after arriving, no problems. The room was comfortable , the view was Incredible and while American travellers need to bring wash cloths and facial tissues, experienced travelers will be fine. We came the week before they closed, but every detail was attended to- the jacuzzi in the great spa didn't bubble, but we didn't care as the pool was wonderful as was the sauna. The hotel is at the end of a paved road and directly across a great beach. The half board option was good although the buffett ended on our first weekend there - food was good, but as we were exploring, a couple of tavernas stood out also. Horseback riding can be arranged with excellent horse and staff, we did a half day safari ride through Zoraidia Stables ..and it was excellent - I ride, my husband is still new but the one on one attention and the views made it all worth it!! A car made it easy to go to the CretAquarium, Knossos, Lappa, and Aptera. Actually quite easy to navigate with a map. Iraklion - drive and park at the port and get a map!!!! Only 1hr+ away, Knossos and other sites within driving distance. Great base from which to start your holiday.
Cant get any better with personal service, at least this time of year. Beach too cold to swim, but we were so busy with suggested excursions we didn't notice. Crete is a one of a kind of place, hopefully we will be back in May or June, it really is that incredible.
