When we woke up this morning, neither of us could move without complaint. Calves, knees, thighs, and even abs had taken a toll from the day before. Yowza! Man, are we out of shape. I wonder how some of those other people faired??
We started off the morning by stumbling down to the port for a tour through the Maritime Museum. As we were coming down the stairs, holding onto the railing for dear life, an older couple started coming up ...
... a town on the edge of Thira. We chose to ride the donkeys up the steep hill, many squeals and laughs later we made it to the top to watch the sunset. A huge day but great way to see this strange volcanic island. After a few days lazing by the pool in Santorini we finally boarded another typically late (3hours) ferry to the island of Crete. A fast taxi ride half an hour out of the main terminal we arrived just after midnight at ...
... to do this dive. I talked with him about his camera to keep my mind off of the boat rising and falling 5 feet every few seconds. Once I explained I wasn’t feeling well, he explained the sardines need to eat too and rarely do they get to enjoy peanut butter! The visuals didn’t help and I suspect that was his intention after finding out he had been diving since 1965. He said he has never been seasick, but has been diving with plenty of people who ...
So much to say, just pictures for now..write up tonight. Starts Neolithic period 7000 BC to the Roman 4th century AD
Just returned from a beautiful homemade meal, with Antonia & Vasili on their veranda, of rabbit, meat wrapped in cabbage leaves, Greek salad with tiny olives the size of small grapes & homemade feta, moussaka, homemade sweets of fruit preserved with honey. As we said the journey is in the people we meet.We have been so ...
... We spent a few extra euro in Heraklion and this hotel room did not disappoint! Very cute and not one, but TWO air conditioners! We’re gonna sleep good tonight.
We purchased a combination ticket to visit the Heraklion Archeological Museum and the Knossos Palace. The hotel is well situated for this, as the Museum is on the same block, and Knossos could be visited by bus which could be caught on the same block. ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Club Marmara Athina Palace Agia Pelagia
Just returned from a 2 week stay and felt that I had to make comments as I was horrified about reveiws that was made in August. I did not read the reviews until after I had booked for a two week stay - I tried to cancel but would have lost full payment - was not looking forward to it one bit. I did take notice of the comments about the amount of steps and asked sunstar leisure to contact the hotel to ask for a room near restaurant - I received e-mail within a couple of hours confirming request. Our hotel room was directly in front of the reception and swimming pool - great views and sun on balcony until 7pm. Room was kept very clean and towels and bedlinen changed daily. Staff very friendly especially in pool bars/main bar and restaurants. Food was very good ( a bit samey after 2nd week) but that is usual in all hotels. Definately not a 5 star but a good 3-4. We are a couple in our fifties and enjoyed the relaxing days by the pool and at the beach - 5 euros for sun beds for 2 (beach) but was quite happy to pay for such a beautiful setting. Please do not be put off but I can quite understand the difference that we noticed going in September where the hotel is not fully booked. Would go again (same time) but for one week only. Met some great people of all ages so we did not miss the lack of evening entertainment!!. Please feel free to email if you need any futher information.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Athina Palace for one week during Septemeber 2004. We had a decent time. We did not think the hotel was 5*. We did, however, think it was 4* or top class 3*.
My husband and I have just returned from holiday and to be honest after reading the reviews was quietly dreading it. Thankfully we had a very enjoyable holiday! I know the food is not quite up to 5* standard but there was plenty of it and after all we were in Greece so we knew that sausage, egg and chips would not be on the menu.
People like to have a good moan obviously from reading this !!
The hotel staff were rude and our a/c didn't work. After a few days of compalining the Manager told me that if I complained once more she would call the police. The a/c in the public rooms was not used so there was never any respite from the heat.
I have just come back from the Athina Palace, staying for one week. Unfortunately, when I booked my holiday I looked at this website for reviews and I thought I had booked a great place - how wrong I was. This hotel is not 5 star at all, I would stay it is around a 3 star at most. The accommodation is basic; the food was the same for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (Brussels sprouts for Breakfast!).
I came back from my 7 days spend in Crete, in a such lovely hotel bungalow. A lot of plants and flowers, a genial architecture with many stairs and roads, a little difficult way to attend the beach, but after such plenty meals is better to do some sport. The beach "Made"is small, but so beautiful and the sea is in three colors, thew view is excellent, the water was warm and clear with litlle fish in it. The accomodation was almost perfect with spacious room, large bathroom and silent balcony with a beautiful view. The hotel staff was gentle, but some roughness in spech, but all the greeks are the same. The animation staff, mostly italians, was under estimation, so bored and sometimes indecent. But overall, if you want to be calm, if you want to enjoy the sea, the sun and the vegetation I will reccomend such isolated but beautiful place like Iberostar Athina Palace.
