    • A 4 night trip to crete - where to stay ?

      by dvirreznik Online Now Apr 27, 2014 at 2:47 PM

      Hello, we are are a young married couple who are looking for taking a vacation in greece, and we though crete is the island to go. We have a few questions:

      A. We wanted to know how is the weather in early may ? is it still rainy ? is the ocean water cold ? are in-door pools at hotels / parks heated ?

      B. We usually like to stay in quality (yet not crazy expensive ones) hotels, we need a room with a refrigerator and a king size bed. Funny enough it's hard to find good hotels in booking.com (cause most people i guess don't book from booking so all have few reviews) and even in top rated hotels in tripadvisor you can see people say about good reviewed hotels that the rooms are hostel-like quality, etc...

      I don't mind paying 120 euro per night (or less :) ) to get a no fuss, good quality room in a good quality hotel, if you got a good recommendation.

      C. I perfer an area where you have good beaches, can take good trips and have intresting places to see (and to eat :) ).

      D. Again, is there a trick to find the golden hotels, or such do not exists ?

      E. Is Rhodes or another island better suited for my requirements ?

      Thanks.

    • Help with Iraklion Street Names

      by emyersjr Online Now Sep 7, 2013 at 10:52 AM

      I lived on Crete from 1969 a 1971 as a USAF dependent ( father was stationed on Iraklion AFB). I want to take my family to Crete within the next year - in hope of paying a visit to the section of Iraklion where we once lived. I remember heading west of the base and while riding the school bus along a winding mountain road. The section of town we lived in was a short walking distance from Lions Square. Although I do realize that Crete has undergone a lot of changes over the past 40 years, does anyone know where I can get my hands on a (English Translated) map of Iraklion from the late 60's or early 70's? I'm not too sure of the spelling but I'm looking for a street named Methosa. In addition, I'm searching for any information regarding a small hotel from that time frame by the name of Hotel Delaney (agin, not sure of the spelling). The hotel sat on a hill and overlooked a small fishing village. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    • Tips on holiday in Crete with limited mobility

      by Teasel- Online Now Sep 2, 2013 at 1:08 AM

      I will be in Crete later on this week with my sister, who has permanent pain in her ankle, and can only walk very slowly and really not far. The original plan was to stay in our hotel and pool, or go to the closest beach. She now thinks we should get buses to other beaches. I know it will vary from place to place but any idea how far in meters it will be from where a bus drops you off to the beach?
      Any other tips on something that we could do for a bit of variety, or when it's too hot to be on the beach, that we could get to easily? Could be a general suggestion - ie whether a cafe is happy for you to sit in and read a book even if you're only buying the ocasssional drink, or specific places.
      We'll be staying in Rethymnon, a small hotel called Thalassi.
      Thanks

      by Elyzabeth Online Now Jun 28, 2013 at 5:36 AM

      They say the bus will only take 20 minutes to get into town, but these places are not always honest, it is not the distance I am asking about, but the reputation of the busses on Crete, In some places we have gone to, the busses are either very erratic or way overcrowded... Can anyone advise me about this? Also we can either stay out of Iraklion and get a great deal.. or we can stay in the main city itself and get a less favourable deal
