Village Heights Golf Resort

After our first day on Crete, we drove to the hotel we'd stay at for the week. The hotel is called Village Heights Golf Resort, which is full of time share properties that are inexpensive to rent. The kid saw two main advantages in this hotel: a pool and a playground.

The pool area is quite large, with a spacious pool for adults and a smaller lap pool above. Just below the adult pools is a long shallow trench that leads to the children's pool. J and L loved splashing around in this side pool. Both this pool and the adult pool were bitterly cold by any normal human standards, which means the kids were not bothered by it no matter how much they shivered or their lips turned blue.

The adult pools

Inside the hotel lobby down a staircase is a spa with a heated pool. We all swam down there on the first day. The water was warmer but there was no sunshine; the net result was positive, but not by a lot. When J and I went back to the locker room to get our dry clothes on, we both accidentally bashed into the open locker door. J injured his head; I my back. We were pretty unhappy about that and learned to be more cautious in the future.

The playground is right by the pool. The standard equipment is enhanced by having a ping-pong table, which the kids enjoyed playing even with their lack of skills.

Yay swings!

Boo swings!

The hotel had lots of fun for the kids. It also had evening entertainment which I enjoyed, but that's a story for another post.
