Resorts On The Western Side Of The Island

18 July 2009 - 02:53 PM

I have reservations at the Souda Bay air base but am thinking maybe we need to get out to stay somewhere else. We would need someplace not too expensive that might have a pool or beach nearby. I was thinking the western side may be a good option and wanted any recommendations. I looked kind of around Maleme, Ag. Marina, and found that they're pretty full or very expensive. Any help would be appreciated. Otherwise we'll head over and see what SPA tours suggests (the base agency...)


Rental Cars Air Conditioned?

18 July 2009 - 02:50 PM

Are the rental cars typically not air conditioned? Several have mentioned hot trips in the car and I can't seem to get ahold of the spa tours where we hope to rent the car from. Does anyone know what the deal is?



Trip With Kids

16 July 2009 - 12:22 PM

We're going on a trip to Crete with 3 small children next week. We are staying in the Souda Bay area and would like to travel to the Samari gorge (via the ferry), Elfonsi, and possibly Heraklion to the ruins. I understand it will be quite crowded but wondered if anyone had suggestions on how long it takes to drive to any of these places from Souda Bay, where good beaches that wouldn't be too overly crowded might be. And if anyone thinks it might be too hot and crowded for them to enjoy walking around the Palace of Knosis. Any tips on where to stay if we decided to spend a night in Heraklion would be helpful too ;-).


I've gotten a lot of good info off these boards already!
