Awesome people, awesome place ! Everyone is so welcoming and helpful, the atmosphere is very relaxed and the location is great too; not far from restaurants, shops, a bit of a distance to the beach (20 minute walk) but once you get there it's worth it. Being here in the down season it hasn't been too crazy at the bar downstairs, but I can imagine during high season it would be one of the best places to be ! Tons of seating around the pools to relax and the rooms are perfect for what you need whether you're here for a week or a month.
Only downside : you have to pay 10 euros for internet (for the week) and if you're on the 3rd floor it won't reach your room, so you have to be down by the pool to get service.

HAVE I GOT A STORY FOR YOU !! okok, so, Monday I take the boat from Santorini to Crete. The boat docks at Heraklion Port, and I need to get to Malia, about half an hour away. We dock at around 8pm and my only option is to take a cab. Now, before I even left Santorini I googled the distance from the port to my hotel and at that point had …

Some villages had a variety of snow ploughs, diggers and tracked vehicles clearing smaller roads. Several times we had to wait several minutes until they had finished, at another spot a couple of farmers were squashing sheep into their pickups keeping them inside the back with ...
... closed, just a few tavernas and cafes were doing business. It's still bitterly cold so we don't wander about for too long. Heading back to the campsite we noticed signs for Karteros Canyon, intrigued we followed the signs, a few miles later after passing through some villages we turned onto a track leading into the canyon we ducked and dived through olive trees and four foot tall reeds, we crossed 3 fords coming to ...
... the road. We were out about an hour other than a couple of cars we didn't see a soul, this could be because of the thick fog of dried sea spray covering our glasses!! When we got back Les took the hob apart, he couldn't find anything wrong with it other than the control board was full of dust, he gave it a good clean and reassembled it, it started first time, it's fascinating how much dust and grit we get in side Dream Catcher. It was ...
The overnight hail, thunder and lightening disturbed us several times, we are reluctant to get up until the heating has warmed up. There are occasional breaks in the rain today, so we took the opportunity to take Logan out. We walked along the road which is flooded in places, were well wrapped up with full waterproofs on, the wind is bitting cold. We walked for around an hour passing an estate of military houses and beyond them an almost deritict area of what we think must have ...
