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!

... a Minoan palace might have looked like . We visited the throne room , the women's quarters. After walking around the palace we stopped in Knossos for lunch. Tim and I picked the taverna nearest the bus and order Sardines and a Greek salad. The sardines were not the kind we find back home in a can. They were really big and had lots of bones . We were later joined by Diedre who we share our sale with and sampled her anchovies From Knossos we drove back into Chania and spent ...
... 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 ...
... fantastic seafood. At the end of the meal we were given free desserts and shots of vodka, an interesting way to end lunch! Kyle and I wandered the alleys a bit more before joining Ally and Blair back at e hotel for a rest. Tonight we plan on watching the sunset from the rooftop hot tub before heading to a restaurant in the city's old Turkish bath. We are already regretting only giving ourselves 3 days on this incredible ...
... Great walk. Beautiful scenery. A formed path most of the way and all downhill so easy. Came out the bottom about 3pm (I was a slow walker as some people did it in 4-5 hours) at a town called Agia Roumeli. A swim at the beach (deserved), and then a boat ride to the next town on the coast that had a road to it (Sougia) Then it was the bus back to Chania arriving at 9pm. Pretty full day. Tired but ...
Most visitors who want to hike the famous Samaria leave between 6 and 7am in order to have plenty of time to do the 16km hike (5+ hours) well before the 5:30pm ferry leaves at the end. But when the rest world zigs, we zag. In addition, we love to sleep! We got up around 8:30am and made the best use of the breakfast buffet possible making off with ham, cheese, bread and fruit enough for our mid-hike lunch. On the road by 9:45, the front desk was aghast at our late ...
