I have just returned from my first trip to the Mistral, it was one of the best holidays of my life. Although I'm a very confident person, I was still really nervous about going especially as I booked it on the strength of trip advisor reviews mainly. I loved it all! The hotel was so comfortable and welcoming, the food was incredible. If in doubt book it, you will have the best time ever. The thing that really stood out for me was that it felt like I was staying with family, the staff were so caring helpful and had a real passion for Crete and so wanted everyone to have the best experience possible. I went on a couple of brilliant trips (the fish lunch is a must!) but also used the hotel info about local buses and 'The little Train' trips to organise things myself. The hotel also will help you with car hire etc. I was a bit worried about cliques before I went and there were a lot of groups of people who were meeting up or who had travelled together, but I found a 'hello, I'm Sarah" was all it took to break the I e. no one excluded me, indeed on the contrary. I love, love love this hotel and I can't wait to go back. If in doubt book it, just do it!
