That evening I arranged food to be delivered at the hotel for everyone...

We spent a weeek at this hotel mid Sept 2003, the views were stunning because it is perched on top of a big hill halfway between Ag Nik and Elounda, buses stop directly outside the hotel, but a car hire is recommended because of it's isolation. If you enjoy going for a evening meal and a stroll, Ag Nik and...

There was no problem travelling as there is a bus stop right outside the hotel. The hotel...
