I 100% agree with all of the positive comments in recent reviews. This is one of the best and I would strongly recommend it. The hotel staff have to be the most friendly and helpful I have encountered. Almyrida itself is a great spot and has everything you would expect of a seaside village but it's not a big place. (No nightclubs - joy) Having a car helps with a longer stay and I would particularly recommend nearby Kalyves and Georgioupoli as alternative beaches for a change of scene. Well worth a trip to Rethimnon which is a fascinating place with ancient fortress, great shopping in a maze of old quaint streets and a Venetian harbour. (Take the second (easy) exit off the National Road - the first is a nightmare). Finally, Lake Kournas is amazing and you can hire a pedalo to go Turtle spotting or swim in the warm fresh water. Don't worry about the watersnakes - they are the completely harmless Dice snake though I wished I had looked that up before I met one ! There's obviously some great walking to be done around the area but not in August when it's hot hot hot. Lovely sea breeze though. All in all you cannot be disappointed with this hotel - I guarantee it.
