This hotel was one of the funny parts of our travels through Greece.
When we arrived in Crete our taxi driver told us that our travel agency moved our hotel to the Golden Star, a much nicer hotel all inclusive hotel. So we were like great!
We got in late from our ferry, but the front desk people were nice, and the room was also good. There was a fruit basket and wine waiting for us, but we were tired so went to sleep. So the next morning start looking at our room and realizing that a lot of the information packet stuff about the hotel is in French. Well after leaving our room and everyone saying "bonjour" to us instead of "kalimera" and the ladies playing games with people outside were speaking french to everyone, that we were at a french resort, and probably the only americans there.
But that didnt matter. We still had a great time, and everyone was friendly, has a big pool with a slide, seems like a great place to go if you have a family.
the food....eh. wasnt all that great. And its kind of out there on its own, so not really near anything. The town of Analipsi is small, no night life, but has some good restaurants and nice people.
