Jo-An Palace 3* July 19-August 3, 2007

Hello! We plan to visit Rethymnon for 2 weeks and to stay in Jo-An Palace, because they have special offer, very cheap. Does anybody know anything about this hotel? How long will it take us to go to the beach? They suggest All Inclusive - is it fine or it's better to take HB?

Then... We go with our son 4,5 years old, so we have to combine 2 kinds of tourism - beach and excursions. Will it be possible? We have no drive lisence and can't pay too much for tours, so what could we see ourselves, by bus, near Rethymnon? The boy is quite calm, so we have no problem with him while going by bus for 2-3 and even 5 hours, but still we don't want him to suffer:)

And 2 more questions: 1) what's about the weather in Rethymnon at the end of July and 2) how much does it cost in general - to dinner in some tavernas? Thanks a lot for any information! :)))

Killarney, Ireland

The bus will get you everywhere and the hotel is walking distance from the beach beside the old town. There are so many good restaurants, you will miss out the pleasure if you take full board. Eat in the back streets not in the harbour, across the street from OTE telephone exchange is Pikantico where you will get prepared food of a high standard for a reasonable price(you have to go to the kitchen to choose)

It is a really lovely town so go and enjoy it.

If you go from the hotel straight trough the old town, the reception will explain how, than you are in less than 30 minutes on the longest beach of Crete. Ideal for your little son, because its starts very undeep. Just be aware with strong waves we have strong under currencies. The bus will take you more time, since there's lots of 1 way traffic in the center. The weather will be warm, I hope not as hot like the last weeks

A dinner in taverns, around 10 euro per person with drinks, starters and dessert extra. There are children meals !!!
