Well what can i say! First and foremost the staff at this hotel were absolutely spot on with customer care.From the reception (eva) to the pool bar (manolis) to the watersports (barry manilow)...well he was a dead ringer for him!
The rooms here are fantastically large with great balconies,cleaned daily and superb air-con which is a must at night.
There are two main pools which are just the right temperature for cooling off in the heat as well as a toddlers pool adjoining.
Food at the main restaurant was varied and well presented,we always managed to be seated for five even when it was busy.Drinks at the hotel were a bit on the steep side i.e pint of lager 3.90 euros,coke 2.70 euros and carafe of red wine 7.50 euros.But hey your on holiday!!! the hotel is predominately german tourists scattered with a few british and greek.No problem with getting a sunbed at the pool or the beach as there are more sunbeds than guests.(do not lose your towels as there is a 20 euro fine)
Going further afield i would definately recommend using taxis to elounda and aghios nicholias due to the fact the bus service is very unreliable.Taxis to ag nic and elounda are 8 and 13 respectively.The submarine boat out of ag nic is an enjoyable trip and is cheap if you book through reception,we had two children go free which was a big saving.The highlight of our holiday was hiring the small self drive motor boat from barry down on the watersports near the beach.You only get an hour for 50 euros but you can sail to your hearts content and the kids loved it.
All in all i would say we had a fabulous holiday at candia park and would thoroughly recommend it to families and couples.
