... blue water. It was an amazing view, sitting on the cliffs we watched a local catching octopus with a snorkel and his hands...it all felt very Greek! And very different to the other islands we had visited. We'll be sad to leave Greece, but very happy we came and visited a place we hadn't planned! (A holiday within a holiday) Tomorrow we say goodbye to Lucy and Tori who have been a great laugh and company over the past week. Next stop ...
... things off by getting a little bit sloshed before boarding a flight out of here? Too bad that today was a Sunday, which we found out is the day that all the wineries are closed!
Still, we managed to find a way to enjoy a bit of Heraklion's wine country by having the customary Cretan experience of a lazy and drawn out Sunday lunch at Elia & Diosmos, the prototypical type of modern restaurant you would expect to find in ...
Earliest start we've had in a while today and, due to my horrendous cold that I'm blaming Malia for, I've suffered another sleepless night. Potentially also a little bit to blame is the fact that we didn't get home until it was starting to go light outside... Due to a lack of funds all of us had a reasonably sober night ...
... Michaels phone is playing up and won't turn on or charge so he's a little annoyed I think, and mine has become the only fully functioning one - if anyone needs to get in touch with us I'd go through me! Another late start today (my body clock is already destroyed) and we're going to make the most of our apartment's pool before our last night out tonight. Lots of love Molly ...
... Cretan village about an hour away. This island is famous for its thyme flavored honey, and its olive oil. They have over thirty million olive trees! We drove west along the north shore of Crete until we turned to go up into the rolling hills to our destination. The village was abandoned years ago, and a family has purchased the property and restored the village. Many of the houses were now shops ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Candia Park Village Agios Nikolaos
What a wonderful place to stay, rooms cleaned every day and you are given as many clean towels as needed. The on site facilities are everything you could wish for, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, tavernas etc... The games room with its Internet access and pool table gave them something to do in the evening and the launderette and supermarket supplied your needs in that direction. The swimming pools kept the children (5-31 years old) happy and well entertained. Agios Nikoloas is at the moment only a seven euro taxi ride away so it's easy to get to and the restaurants there are superb. The car hire facility on site is useful and we spent a number of days exploring reaching Sitia to the east and Hirsonisos westwards. For a family group of fifteen it was a wonderful experience which we may well repeat soon.
We picked Candia Park Village primarly because of the many positive reviews. The reviews were right on the mark as Candia Park was the best resort hotel that we have stayed at. We have 3 children so want to make sure we picked the right place for the entire family. The accommodations, service, food and recreational ammenities were great. The friendleness of the staff was next to none. From an American perspective the service was better than I have recieved at four star accomodations in the US. I also enjoyed that the cliental representeted many different nationalties. The kids loved the place period. We will come back again to Candia Park to spent a great week in the sun in the future. The only thing different we would have done would be to rent a car for our entire 10 day stay. The excursions that we booked locally and through our travel agent were expensive and rushed. Save yourself some money, buy a good tour book and explore. My assumpion is that you might be able to find a local guide for just a little more than the cost of an excursion. Guess we will find out next time around.
Perfect place to stay!
Our five days at Candia Park Village were not enough! Crete is beautiful and Candia Park Village is exceptional. The apartments are comfortable and quite spacious. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony and enjoying the wonderful view. The pools are excellent, as is the beach area. The buffet meals are good. We could have stayed at Candia Park Village much longer, in fact, next time we will! It is a great location for exploring eastern Crete.
Wir waren 1995 zum ersten Mal im Candia Park als unsere Tochter ein Jahr alt war. Es war damals großartig und ist heute, bei unserem 5. Besuch, noch viel besser. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig mit ausgezeichnetem Blick über die Bucht auf die Berge. Unterkunft ist im traditionellen zweistöckigen Stil, mit Gebäuden über das makellose und gut versorgte Grundstück verteilt. Wir fahren normalerweise im Mai wenn es noch nicht so heiß ist und überall Blumen zu sehen sind. Die Zimmer sind geräumig und sehr bequem mit einer guten Klimaanlage. Um die zwei Pools herum gibt es immer genug Sonnenliegen und Sonnenschirme und an der Poolbar hat man den besten Blick auf alles.
Waren eine Woche lang im Candia Park Village - tauschten für eine Timeshare Woche durch R.C.I. Wusste nicht, was wir erwarten sollten und waren überrascht. Unglaubliche Lage mit Blick auf Mirabello Bay - besser geht's nicht auf Kreta - die Berge, die Seen, eine unglaubliche Lage - alles kommt an einem Ort zusammen. Das Zimmer war sagenhaft, ein Schlafzimmer, großartige Küche und Balkon mit tollen, ruhigen Blick. Ein Rundgang über's Gelände brachte ausreichend Bewegung - die ganze Zeit rauf und runter - gut, um den Kreislauf in Schwung zu bringen, und etwas vom Essen abzuarbeiten. Viele gute Stellen wo man schwimmen kann und ein tolles Poolgebiet mit Salzwasserpool. So schön wie das auch war, ich komme nach Griechenland um im wunderschönen, sauberen und klaren Mittelmeer zu schwimmen. Das Schwimmen war fantastisch - geschützt von Booten und perfekt zum Schnorcheln. Ein schönes und komfortables Lay-Out um herumzuhängen, gute Lage der Bar für einen Drink. Meine einziges "Anliegen" war das es hier viel zu viele Kinder gibt! Gut gelegen für Kinder aber wir stellten immer sich, dass wir innerhalb der Anlage eine ruhige Stelle fanden. Wir hatten ein Auto und fuhren gerne herum und aßen in griechischen Restaurants anstelle vom Hotelrestaurant, für uns war das toll. Fragten die Angestellten nach Empfehlungen in der Umgebung, so hatten wir das beste aus den zwei Welten - konnten die Stadt sehen, gingen spazieren und genossen dann unsere Unterkunft.
Aghious nikolos just returned from candia village on self catering 1 week holiday brilliant village like accomodation. All mod cons television, hairdryer, air conditioning, huge balcony where we could sit out and eat breakfast, daily maid service. Had 2 huge pools, fresh pool towels daily, plenty of sunbeds.Shop on site.Friendly staff would not advise to book half board as buffet style free for all not relaxed dining .Taverna on site. Good quality site beautiful plants. Bit of a walk shortcut to town 30 minutes but no real need to leave site. Bus service local ok taxis etc. Car hire was useful. Small beach with watersports available.
We would go back again. Has kids club which we did not use. Lots of germans , some french and english. Good value for money.
We've just come back from a week at Candia Park, our first visit to Crete, indeed Greece. From the moment the coach turned into the drive we knew that we'd made a good choice. The place is beautifully laid out and is covered in flowers and overlooks the Mirabello Bay.
We first stayed at Candia Park in 1995 when our daughter was one. It was great then and it is even better now, after our fifth visit. The location is quiet with fantastic views over the bay to the mountains. Accommodation is in traditional style 2 storey buildings dotted around the spotless and well tended grounds. We usually go in May when the temperature is not too hot and the whole place is full of flowers. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with great air conditioning. There are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas around the 2 pools and the pool bar has the best view of all.
Stayed for a week at the Candia Park Village - actually traded in a timeshare week through R.C.I. Didn't know what to expect and were we surprised. Unbelievable setting overlooking Mirabello Bay -this is Crete at its best - the mountains, the seas, in an outstanding setting - all coming together in one place. The unit was tremendous -a bedroom, great kitchen, and balcony with a gorgeous, tranquil view. Walking around the grounds is great exercise -up and down all the time -good for your cardio to work off some of the food you will enjoy. Several spots to swim on the premises plus a beautiful multi-pool area with sea water. However nice it was, I go to Greece to swim in the beautiful, clean, clear Mediterranean Sea and the swimming was fantastic - sheltered from boats, but perfect for snorkeling. A nice, comfortable layout for lounging around, good bar setup for a drink. The only "concern" for me was - are there too many kids! Great setup for kids, but we made sure we were able to find quieter locations on the grounds. We had a car, and love to go out and eat in Greek local restaurants, rather than in the hotel restaurant, so it was great for us. Asked the staff members for local recommendations, so we enjoyed the best of both worlds -seeing the town, walking around, then enjoying our accomodations very much.
Candia Park was a fantastic hotel (complex). The faclilities were very clean and the staff are brilliant. They couldn't do anymore for you. The Customer Service is excellent. They love and adore kids, making you feel at home and welcome. I don't have any children but its quite clear they are family orientated. I loved the hotel because you can choose from sun bathing by the pool, beach or go to a secluded sunbathing spot by the sea (very romantic).
