Help! My husband and I are taking our 3 kids, age 10, 13 and 25, on a 10 day package tour to Greece. Since it is so far away from home (San Francisco), we added on 5 more days in Crete. While there with the tour group, we will see Knossos and Spinalonga, and stay in Elounda. Is it reasonable to drive to Chania or the south or even Rethymnos from there? Or since it's only 5 days, should we stay closer to Heraklion area (we fly out of here)? We hope to find a resort with pool for kids and with a nice beach nearby but will rent a car for day trips for archeological sites. We hope to use our "mileage plus" points to pay for part of the hotel which has a list of over 400 hotels in Crete: among them are Candia Park Village, Kiani Beach Resort, Santa Marina Plaza and even Minos Imperial Luxury Beach Resort. Has anyone ever stayed at any of these? advice on what cities to see?
