... shopping in the town which was pretty good. Jewel and Jolene got lost so the travel sim phones came in handy and they soon found their way.
We went back to the boat and met another Aussie couple from Newcastle and had lunch with them. Back to the gym in the arvo followed by a hot tub with some euro women.
Had a great dinner tonight. it was an Italian night ...

All day at sea today and it's pretty rough! Been feeling a bit wonky all day with the rolling sea ! The sun came out this morning so enjoyed a bit of heat for a couple of hours up by the pool. They were having a Germany day with giant blow up beer mugs and pretzels. Entertainment team were running quizzes and activities similar to a school fair. Lots of people lining up to have a turn at hoop over the stick, bean bag through the hole followed by a game ...

Whilst Bronte and Andrew are watching what can only be described as a truly awful Australian/ Greek movie, I'm writing the blog and eating a block of chocolate!

... watching Mamma Mia for the 2nd time. Andrew is writing the reviews for the hotels that we have stayed in.

It's getting cooler as night approaches but we have had great weather even though it is late winter. Bronte will light the fire soon and our little chalet will be cosy and warm. Nothing too much for dinner though; we are still trying to digest lunch!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Club Marmara Athina Palace Agia Pelagia

    Great for a week in September!!


    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.

    Nice relaxing week


    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*.

    It's not that bad!!!


    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.

    Holiday From Hell!!


    Date of Stay August, 2004

    We arrived back to Luton last Tuesday 24th


    People like to have a good moan obviously from reading this !!

    But we paid for a 5 star suite........


    Do not stay here...EVER..!!!

    3 star at best


    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.

    Would never go again to the Athina Palace


    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!).

    Loved the Made


    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.
