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!

... two restaurants gave us raki that could have been confused for vodka, this time the raki was smooth and almond flavored, perfect for sipping as we gazed out over the harbor hustle and bustle. After dinner we wandered through the streets and alleys within the old city wall. It is a great place to people watch and e architecture is beautiful. A note about restaurants. I realize that I may later want the names of restaurants we have enjoyed to recommend to others so ...
... Our hotel is inside the old Venetian city walls, which are filled with cozy alleys and picturesque courtyards. Later we walked over to the town beach for a swim. On our way we ran into the daily market that put most of our California farmers markets to shame. The fish, cheese, produce, and honey all looked delicious. After a while on the beach, we found a good waterfront restaurant and were shocked by how low the prices were ...
... lost. It is kept really well.
Chania was the setting off point for me to hike the Samaria gorge. An early morning bus (6am) to the top of the gorge (Omalos) (about 1 hour) and then a long walk downhill through the gorge. The first part was a long zig zag down to the base of the gorge ( from about 1300 meters). Then it was a 15km through the gorge going slightly down hill all the way (the way ...
... Exhausted Evie and Sue watched some of their favorite musical numbers from Grease which was Evie's reward for not complaining once during our long walk. "Why would I?" she said, "it was totally awesome!" I supposed when you've hiked through the Dolomites in knee deep snow this would be considered a piece of cake. Exhausted but happy, lights were out in our room by 10:30 as the rest of Greece waited to see if there beloved country would make their IMF payment due at ...
... The total bill was under 50€. We strolled back along the waterfront to our car and drove home, taking note of the long lines at the ATMs and the many closed gas stations. Apparently in addition to a run on the banks, there was a run on gas stations who take credit cards, depleting most of them within a few hours. Back at our idyllic hotel bubble, we finished watching Grease, finally tucking ourselves in bed at 11pm. Like we said, we aren't very good at doing ...
