Great location, brilliant beach, shops and bars. Shops stayed open until at least 11. Locals were lovely and really helpful. Good bus service and cheap which the locals helped us with, explaining that we should buy our bus ticket in the supermarket as it was cheaper. Plenty of atms. <br /> <br /> Easy to book excursions to Spinola, Samaria Gorge, Knossos etc. Coach mostly picked you up from the hotel or a taxi was sent to transport you to a pick up point. Lovely taverna near the hotel called uncle George -3 course meal for 2 was only €38 and free raki and an extra free dessert. <br /> <br /> Small water park near by. Water sports centre locally too.
