The residents seemed to be evenly split amongst British, German and Dutch and all got on well. We hired a car from the resident Sixt rep (after some exhaustive haggling!) and explored the area from Agios Nikolaos in the East to Heraklion and found Sissi to be an ideal hub. It's quiet-ish, but there is a good choice of tavernas and bars to frequent in the evening if a change of scenery from the hotel's 3 restaurants is required. Although clearly a tourist village, it's a million miles from the brash commercialism of Malia and Hersonissos.
All-in-all, this was a first rate hotel with everything thought about and catered for with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of hospitality. Any requests were speedily and efficiently handled. Fantastic holiday and thoroughly recommended hotel. Hope this helps you. Cheers.
