Stayed in this family run hotel last week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our coach arrived at 2.30 a.m. and following a quick checkin, we were invited to the dining room for tea, cheese, and small snack ; an unexpected welcome idea. I travelled alone, and was given a room on 3rd floor as requested, with a south facing balcony. Blackout curtains to guarantee a good night's sleep, and a powerful shower and bath, with a safe in the wardrobe. Lots of hangers and good reading lighting over the (double) bed, with good air conditioning. Breakfast catered for all tastes and nationalities, with cold meats and cheeses, hot selection of breads, bacon, eggs, tomatoes etc. Lovely Greek yoghurt with peaches, and honey to drizzle. Cereals, breads and juices ( not freshly squeezed). Lunch was served in bar area outside. Bbq one evening a week, showing what the chef can offer .... a fabulous spread of salads, fish and of course barbecued lamb and chicken. You pay 5 euro for 2 sun beds ( it stops those who like to monopolise at dawn!) but are given bottle of chilled water complimentary at midday. Food and drinks are served at the water's edge, should you wish. The owners and staff all speak good English and German, and everyone of them are most pleasant smiling people. Lily deserves a mention! Wifi is available, but can be frustrating ... the only "crib" i have, as i needed to do some homework. The bus almost outside the door takes you to Rethymno for 1 euro 20 cent, and a taxi costs approx. 9 euro. Definitely one should visit Yannis and his brother Dimitri at the White Lady for fun, dancing and some / a lot of wine!! A very enjoyable stay in a friendly clean and well run hotel.
