We arrived in the evening later than we anticipated. Nevertheless even though it was 11pm and the mountain was on fire blazing away not so far away, Vangelis offered us dinner and drinks which were so welcome. Next morning the views from the patio were wonderful overlooking the pool and over the bays of Elounda. Breakfast cooked to order and such a friendly welcome was all we needed to get straight into our holiday. The pool is perfectly clean, the hotel run so smoothly by Anne, Vangelis and their team and yet everything is so relaxed.
On first meeting the other guests we thought it might be a bit British 'ex-pat' as there seems to be a bit of a competition as to who has stayed the most times! But really everyone was friendly without being too much and we had a real laugh on the boat trip that Vangelis organises. Average age of guests probably around 50 with pool lovely and quiet, so probably not suitable for children or for those not quite so fit because of drag up the steep hill. There are so many places to go around the world, but for once I think we may break our golden rule and return.
