nostalgic trip back to ag nik after 26 yrs! 5 lads came and stayed in a villa in 1987 so this time i travelled solo and gave the coral a try. location is great short stroll from town. i was given room 506 at the side of the hotel overlooking the unfinished building but as all i needed was a room to sleep and get changed in i didnt really mind. i was staying half board and really couldnt fault the food. you basically knew what to expect at meal times but it was presented well in buffet style. the so called surly restaurant manager kept things in order food wise and if you took the time out to smile he always returned the compliment! true some parts of the hotel need updating and the carpets leading from level 2 could do with a good clean. but no cokroaches here. hotel seemed quite full. basically middle aged and upwards, never saw children apart from a couple of teenage girls staying with their grandmother next room to me which brings me to my only serious gripe, why is it when people close their bedroom doors they have to bang it or when opening and shutting wardrobes they have to make a noise like theres an earthquake, must be only us brits who have manners. i thought all the staff were very curtious especially on reception who were very helpfull. i caught the suns rays across the road on the sunbeds on the concrete diving platform more of a breeze there. as i basically stayed round the town ifound some nice hidden gems of restaurants behind the town near the marina and beyond. really you just need to go bandb as i thought the prices pretty reasonable. elounda is well worth a visit, 15 mins on the bus from town, quite a laid back little town but very nice with a couple of beaches 5 mins walk away. going back to the coral yes i would recommend it. but dont forget its only a 3 star i never sampled the evening entertainment as i was always out after dinner sampling the raki! one last important note to remember is friday is there busiest time at the airport. coming no probs, going home chaos, we all had to que outside the airport for 30 mins then allowed in dribs and drabs cos it was so busy and the sgns in the airport are useless as they dont tell you where to go when you have finally checked in. has ag nik changed since 26 yrs ago, well not really probably a few more shops etc. but ooh that airport!
