I had a superb trip to Crete, and thoroughly enjoyed it. When we got to the hotel the lady at reception was extremely friendly and told us exactly what to do and where to go for food etc. A very pleasant gentleman took our bags down to our room which was very clean and spacious. The towels were changed everyday and the sheets were changed most days. We were told how everything worked, like the air con, and then went for dinner. We arrived at the hotel after dinner had finished being served but the waitresses happily bought us some food and made us feel very welcome. The waiters and waitresses were very friendly throughout our stay, especially the dinner staff. The variety of food was also amazing. There was a massive amount of choice from salads to traditional Greek dishes. There were lots of places you could visit in Crete. We went to Georgioupolis and Rithymna. Both were both lovely, but Rithymna being like the main town of the west side of Crete meaning it was a lot busier. There were very good bus services, however in Rithymna the bus station was rather hectic! The beach was lovely and the life guards were very vigilant especially as at the end of our stay the waves were very big and strong. The bar lady was also extremely friendly, and we were the only English people staying in the hotel which was very nice. Most of the other guests came from around Germany. The pool was also very clean and so was the fitness centre and indoor pool. Overall, we had an amazing stay and came away feeling very refreshed and relaxed and with a tan! We would definitely return to this hotel again.
