Hello! Our son is 8 years old, and he liked to swim in sea and pool, also snorling: really suggest to take masks (or u can buy it in Stalis, should be everywehere )Big advantage is that sea is so close and children can walk whenever they want :) As entertiment in hotel itself - cannot say that it is exists, the hotel is for calm relax near the sea. Suggest you to go to aquaworld and reptiles rescue center: amazing place our son loved it, not so far away, 10 min by car (suppose the bus also available) Creteaquarium, labirynth, dinopark. aqupark - also nice places for children oriented. If you will go to Iraklio (main city): suggest to find a huge toy store Jumbo: great variety and lower prices (masks and stuff for swimming also here) Have a great vacation! if any questions pls ask:)

We didn't go on any excursions as we were just there for a 'chill' week. However, as lowcalad says the main strip is very easy walking distance (literally head for the beach & turn right). There are various 'excursion' shops for you to chose from as well as bars, restaurants, gift shops & supermarkets. You will find them all friendly & have good English. Enjoy.

"Study the room map, try to select(using photos) which room type you would like, and cross your fingers!"
"Garden view rooms are all you need."
"Ask for a room in the middle or front of gardens near beach and away from road at front of hotel."
"Always specify & check your request. Rooms beginning 400 are the best"
"Don’t be fooled by the rooms offering a sea view as there will be a busy road between you and the beach."
$105 - $352 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
