Nykos the bartender was the MOST helpful. He gave us some ideas of places to go and things to see! He directed us to Elafonisi Beach which is awe inspiring and a FUN drive to get to...but make sure and bring plenty of cash because they don't take credit cards!
He also gave us the skinny on hiking the Samaria Gorge and provided plenty of ice and Raki upon our return!
Athena's Mom, which we are sad to say we cannot recall was also very helpful. You definitely need a car. I also enjoyed hiking around the area. I felt safe here. However, I would not recommend the "traditional" café across the street. We got back late one night and we were hungry and the hotel kitchen was closed, so we walked over to the café...arghhh...the worst pizza I have ever had!
The breakfast buffet was awesome, the pool is beautiful and the rooms were very nice.
