Fantastic location on hill side looking across the bay towards Spinalonga.
We went for late sunshine 12-19 October and enjoyed blue skies and warm sea to swim in. We were on a B&B package with EasyJet flying to Heraklion - late Saturday. From the airport simply take E75 east until Agios Nikolaos, left at the lights, through Elounda and on the road to Plaka with clear signage.
After a long day driving around the island we got back late and they let us join in the full board buffet for 10 Euros each - which was fine. Lots of fruit for breakfast plus cooked buffet too.
Mainly we dined out - short walk to Despina with bay views was great value. In Plaka - need to drive or taxi - very good fish but more expensive.
Whole hotel seemed to be kept very neat and tidy. Pristine pools, lemon trees and flowering bushes. The little beach was a bit stony - take wet shoes and snorkel - saw lots of fish of various types - almost as many as at Vai beach.
For the price we paid this was excellent value.
Everybody seems to read Victoria Hislop book about Spinalonga which is set around the area.
