Have just spent a week at this hotel & wish we had booked for 2, hotel & old town are amazing places. Hotel staff are "out of this world" & can not do enough for you even insisting we had clean towels for the beach & the pool & would not hear of us "making do" using for both. Stella & her crew were so friendly & helpful & the maid never stopped, this was cleanest place we have ever stayed in & location was perfect for everything. We had room at the front with balcony overlooking the quaint alleyway which was so atmospheric. I would avoid the very pushy sea food restaurants in the harbour. The best restaurant we found was Castlevecchio (up near the Fort) 1st class & To Pigadi (Stella will give directions). Went down to Elounda for 2nd week & stayed at hotel listed in "best hotels in the world" but give me Antica Dimora any day unless you are specifically looking for a pool/beach holiday. Will definitely be going back.
