Fereniki Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Georgioupolis
My first ever holiday was to Crete, Greece in August. It was incredible.
We stayed at the Fereniki Complex in Georgioupolis which was just a stroll from the beach.The Fereniki Resort and Spa Complex was good. At the end of the day it's just a place to rest your head after exploration. I traveled to Crete with my boyfriend and two of our …
... meal under that same moon. Today, after a couple pounds of yogurt and about an ounce of really strong greek coffee, we headed back along the coast by foot. Although the trail was pretty flat, it was sandy and cobbly making for some tricky footing. The views rival Kauai's Napali coast, with fewer hikers and more nude boaters. We made it to the remote place where Paul hid to escape the Romans and were surprised to ...
... Greek salad, potatoes, and skordalia [skor-da-YA] (the garlicky spread/dip I had the other day that I couldn't think of the name - made with bread or potatoes as its base, potatoes in this case). All delicious again. We finished just in time for me to for me to get my things together, and Johnny and Nick dropped me off at the airport for my evening flight to ...
... of this is behind this building of six apartments they own. They rent some out to the US military for those stationed at the nearby Navy base and keep the rest for when they visit from Athens. A beautiful view of Souda Bay. And very nice outdoor grill and shelter type thing to do exactly what we did. Another meal that started past 10, and didn't conclude until after 1. I'm exhausted but had a great ...
... didn't work out. The ferry took us past a couple of the stopping off at a beautiful one in a crescent shaped bay with all the white washed buildings lining the beach.

The Fereniki Resort and Spa Complex was good. At the end of the day it's just a place to rest your head after exploration. I traveled to Crete with my boyfriend and two of our friends all inclusive and none of us were disappointed, but we were not necessarily overwhelmed either.
The room had all we needed - a bed and a bathroom (it included a fridge, too to keep our bottled water cool). There was a balcony which was very handy for drying our clothes but unfortunately didn't' receive any sunlight, and our room was right beside the pool, which was fantastic.
The hotel wasn't the most hygienic (which wasn't expected anyway) and the smell of the lavatory waste disposal wafted about every now and then, but we were too busy enjoying our holiday experiences to spend too much time worrying about the hotel. There was so much to do in Crete that staying around the resort seemed a waste of time!
