Hi All. After much deliberation, we have chosen Crete as one of our destinations this upcoming July. We are a married couple (late 30s- traveling without children!!!) and want a place that has nice beaches, good/busy nightlife (restaurants/bars - NOT Clubs) and also a good spot to explore from. We will have a car. We were thinking Rethymnon area over Elounda/Agios Nikolaos area for the seemingly charming old town and central location. First, is that the right choice ? Second, looking for a beach hotel that is 4-5 *** with updated rooms, good pool, good beach (food not as important as we almost always eat out of the hotel)?
NOTE: Previous post 2 months ago fell off due to my inability to make a decision !!!!
Thank you in advance . . .
