We returned from 2 weeks in the alikes apartments on 13 October - I'm still in Cretan mood! The apartments were lovely - our room a bit dark but it made it cool. We were in room 103 and it was very spacious and clean. Beds and towels changed twice weekly. Cooking facilites were sparse, just 2 rings and a toaster, but we were on holiday - who wants to cook when there are so many wonderful restaurants nearby! We woke every morning to see accross the Med to Spinalonga - wonderful.
Elounda was a beautiful place so many good restaurants and cafes to choose from. Mr George's Kalypso and Zorba's are good eateries as are Mam's just on the main road at the top of the slip road, also Mellissos was good too - and just across the road on the pier into the sea, but all the restaurants on the walk along the sea frot to the harbour are full of good places to eat.
Spinalonga is a must see and it's better to have read Victoria Hislpo's 'the Island' before you go - it just gives an insight into the life of the lepers.
We went to Knossos on a Thomson's trip and it was very good - great guide.
Plaka is also a beautiful village just along the coast and is worth a visit, Also - take the happy train up to Vhouras and Selles. It was a great trip out. Agios Nic is also worth a visit or 2.
Very relaxing 2 weeks in beautiful surroundings with wonderful staff. Will be going back again next year - definately.
The staff were very helpful and spoke wonderful English.
