Amazing mini-get-a-way in Crete
Vi boede på The Island Hotel fra lørdag aften til onsdag morgen, på et lille værelse (991) i stue etage med dobbeltseng, og adgang til delepool med 2 andre rum - de andre så vi heldigvis ikke - så vi havde poolen for os selv. Det var dejligt :-) Tv kanaler havde dårligt signal, men der var WiFi på værelset. Saftybox var i stykker da vi kom, men det fixede en sød mand fra hotellet. Vores ankomst var fin, og vi fik båret vores bagage af selv samme søde mand - vores hotelrum lå meget langt væk fra receptionen. Hotel havde sørget for at der kom en taxa i lufthavnen og hentede os - så vores første indtryk var meget godt, og alt gik nemt. Vi havde kun morgenmad på hotellet - Andre måltider kunne vi frit vælge på de mange restauranter, der er i området. Vi skulle have mundbind på, og der var en lidt sur dame der sørgede for at vi skulle spritte hænder ved indgang - derfra kom en tjener og tog os rundt i morgenmads buffet, sammen med en masse andre gæster/tjenere - det var meget kaotisk og føltes ikke sikkert. Skulle hellere lade os bestille a'la carte fra bord. Men bortset fra denne ene dame, var alle tjenere på hotellet meget venlige og hjælpsomme - også rengørings folk hilste sødt - og rengøringen var meget god. Min mand fik massage flere gange - og det var også rigtigt godt. Kan anbefale et ophold på dette hotel, hvis man slappe af i solen ved pool og på strand

The communal areas are superb. We booked a standard room which was adequate but not luxurious. Our small terrace overlooked an unattractive gravel area.
