We exchanged into this resort via Interval International and stayed from the 26.10 to 2.11.2013. the resort is about 1hour away from the airport and we hired a car for the week. luckily our Sat Nav included european maps, which made finding the resort easy. mainly because the spelling on the instructions matched the setup on the sat nav. we were not so lucky with other locations we tried to find. the resort is perched on the side of the road and very steap. the lift was out for at least half of the week, which would make access for anyone in a wheelchair impossible. as per usual for interval, the resort is isolated and to get to anywhere you must have a car. it is well worth your while though, because the area is fab, especially out of season, without being overrun. the town rethinon and hania itself are every atmospheric and lovely, especially in the evening. to get to the former will take about 15 to 20 min in the car and the later is at least 1 hour and therefore we spend the day in the town. unfortunately, i would have liked to have seen a breakfast package, as you will need to pay for your meals and there is no store that close. about 5min in the car. overall we would stay here again, simply because we don/t mind driving and really enjoyed the island. personally, i would like to be nearer the action next time round.
