This was such a lovely hotel; decor might not be to everybody's taste, but it certainly showed individuality and care.
It was the friendly and caring atmosphee which struck us immediately as soon as we arrived. We were also upgraded to superior rooms which had a gorgeous view of the snow capped mountains and the sea.Tthe rooms were large with comfortable beds and good sized balconies with good furniture.
we had Half board and the food was very good, in particular, the salads.
The wine which we chose most evenings was Greek and really very good value; not plonk at all. On the last evening they gave us the wine free which was a nice touch.
Not many Brits at the hotel, which helped to give it a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
We hired a car and spent much of the week birdwatching and looking for wild orchids. some splendid wildflowers could be seen everywhere. It was my first visit to Crete for thirty years and there was none of the disappointment which one can sometimes feel on a second visit. We went with Thompson and if you want something different from the usual run of the mill resort I would strongly recommend this hotel.More
