... to serve the dishes as they are ready (which works great eating family style) the meats seemed like they just kept coming and were topped off by an entire pig leg/butt/thigh/something. It was all delicious. Probably one of my favorite salads since I've been here (they're all slightly different variations of the same thing). The pork fell off the bone and melted in your mouth. We were all miserable when we walked ...

Myrtos

The drive west along the southern coast from Matala towards Myrtos and Irapatra took us over increasingly mountainous terrain with more cliff-hugging switchbacks and rocky panoramas leading down to the coast much like the less traveled northern road in Maui from Kahalui to Lahaina (minus the one lane roads). The towns and villages were even built along the downward sloping ridge lines. Until finally the ...

Crete

A travel blog entry by kdickson

Tour of Crete in the morning. Visited the ruins of a palace, very crowded, hot and uncomfortable. 36c with no air conditioning on a packed bus. Very pleased to be back in town, having pizza and beer for lunch. Off to Rhodes tomorrow, hopefully a little ...

Last day in Crete!

... great gifts! (Mostly we bought stuff for ourselves ;) ) We then came home to our home for the last week to pack up, which was an adventure in itself and now we are headed to bed. It's after midnight here and we have a ferry to Santorini tomorrow morning. Sleep well my little lemmings and keep following our ...

Hiking the longest gorge in Europe

A travel blog entry by eri_miri

... Luckily the hike ends at the small village of Agia Roumeli, right on the Mediterranean Sea. The town is only "meh" but the water is like nothing we've ever seen before. It was so clear we could see straight to the bottom, no matter how deep. The beach was beautiful black pebble! The water was freezing, but perfect after the hike. Since the village could only be reached by foot or boat we boarded the ferry to get ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Mirabello Beach & Village Agios Nikolaos

    Overall we had a lovely time!

    from

    Overall we had a lovely holiday and were quite happy after reading some negative reviews prior to our holiday. My girlfriend and I booked the holiday in June through Sunstar leisure. It wasn't the most amazing all inclusive hotel you will stay in but neither did we expect this after paying a 'middle-of-the-road' price for a holiday.

    Lovely island shame about the hotel and airport.

    from

    Spent a week here in September 2005. The hotel is in a superb location with magnificent views and only a quick 5 euro taxi ride into the centre of Aghios Nikolaos. However, beware! Many guests, including ourselves, were not allocated the accommodation they had booked. Family rooms for 4 adult passengers is just not acceptable. Neither is the sister accommodation in Mirabello Village which is on a steep hill with many steps when we had specifically booked the hotel because of this. Reception staff were most unheplful, many references in the hotel's guest comment book regarding this. Also, lack of staff in the restaurant and paying for the hotel's own sunbeds, in some areas but not others, seemed ludicrous. The hotel has the potential to be 4* but did not live up to the usual 4* standards or expectations. Food was good but repetitive so go out and about and find some really authentic Greek food in atmospheric surroundings. We found plenty. Entertainment team tried really hard but needed professional acts to support them. Heraklion airport is a nightmare: queuing outside in the heat, endless waits to check in and for passport control and when you do get to the departure lounge you can see why they delay you - just enough seats to accommodate two plane loads of passengers. It really is the worst we've ever encountered.

    Nice hotel but poor location.

    from

    Stayed here for a week from 9th September 2005 on a half board basis.

    Good clean rooms in the village with wonderful views from the balcony.

    The whole complex is on a very steep slope. The hotel is full of steps and then there is a daunting climb to the rooms on the village side. Don't go if you are not fully fit.

    Food very good if rather middle of the road. Breakfast excellent.

    Drinks prices at dinner and from the bars far too high. The bar itself is overlit and has no ambience. Maria's and Stavros bar 200 metres towards town on the left has good food and drinks and a warm welcome. Nothing much else close to the hotel but the bus service is cheap and regular.

    Never been charged for a sun bed in any other 4/5 star hotel I've stayed at.

    Won't return!

    from

    We have just returned from a two week all inclusive holiday in the Iberostar Mirabello Village. Although the hotel and hotel grounds are 4 star material, all other aspects are far from it! The food was bland with no variety and even during theme nights the same food appeared mixed in with a different sauce (they obviously thought guests wouldn't notice!) also, at meal times, you would be finished eating before you even had your drink which was really irritating!! the staff in general very rarely smiled and were unhelpful. We booked and paid for a sea view room only to be told that the hotel was full - we took it up with the manager who was extremely arrogant and did not appear to want to help us - not good customer service!! When over, I phoned over to reception from my room to seek medical attention only to be charged for the call when checking out!

    Fair to Average

    from

    We stayed there for a week between 31/8/05 and 6/9/05 and to be honest we were a little disappointed. You're stuck out on a bend in the road too far away to walk to anywhere and the closest town (Agios) is really just a lake with a few restaurants around it - pretty dull after a few days! As for the hotel, the food is ok (albeit pretty bland) and the rooms in the "Mirabello Village" where we stayed were fine - clean and well looked after. The very worst thing about this hotel is the reception staff who are utterly clueless and really couldn't care less if your problem is dealt with or not. I saw a number of frustrated people and got a dose of it myself when it came to checking out. The evening entertainment is a joke but this only really comes into sharp focus because the surrounding area is so dull. Sorry to be negative if you have booked here - on the plus side the kids seemed to have a good time, the pools are pretty good and the waiters/waitresses do their best in difficult circumstances. If you just fancy lying down by the pool for a week you'll be fine. Can also recommend an excursion to Spinalonga, it's probably the most interesting thing you can do in the area. If you like beaches by the way, you should hire a car as there are no nice ones in the area!

    Almost perfect!

    Myself and my boyfriend have just returned from a week long stay and this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here.

    Have just completed a 2 week stay at this hotel and can report as follows:

    Rip off

    from

    We had an A.I. week here towards the end of July and felt thoroughly stressed out and ripped off at the end of it . First of all they put us in an apartment in the conference block when we had booked a bungalow. Then in the middle of the week we was told the snack bar wasn't A.I. which we had used a few times for lunch. We are T.Total and we was told we would have to pay for certain sparkling water and fresh fruit juice wasn't A.I.

    Lovely hotel shame about the sunbeds

    from

    The hotel itself was very good, clean and good sized bedrooms. The entertainment however was poor due to the limited funds for the animation team, they did their best in the circumstances. The food was wonderful and catered very well for vegetarians (myself and my daughter). The only niggle I had was that they charged 3 euros for each sunbed on the bathing decks by the beach which was miniscule reached by some steps, and which there was no room to sit on. As there were 7 of us in our party, this amounted to 21 euros a day - a rip off. This is a shame and lets the hotel down. The sunbeds by the pool were free so most people put towels out early reserving these. Also the facilities they advertise are not yet available as the hotel has recently been refurbished i.e. Archery, indoor pool, gym, sauna etc.

    Wonderful......................

    from

    We were transfered to the Mirabello on the first day of our holiday as our initial hotel was the pits. We travelled in a group of 4 adults and 3 children. The hotel itself is smart and very attractive. We travelled full board and all the meals were of a very high standard. Much effort was put into quality and presentation. There was something for everyone on the menus. The rooms were clean and spacious. All members of staff were very friendly and curteous. From the reception staff, waiters, entertainment team through to the cleaners. We were very impressed. The area we stayed in was quiet and the only shortfall of the hotel was the evening entertainment which was limited. The beach and sandy cove at the steps of the hotel was fabulous. The gardens and hotel grounds were lovely. Agios Nikolas which is aprox 2 kilometre away is lively and scenic. I would definately recommend this hotel.
