|Our first hotel on Crete|
The rooms are large and spacious with plenty of balconies to spare. We could see the Mediterranean from our room!
|Good thing they trim the branches!|

On the roof they have a seating area with a bar. It looked quite comfy and the views were very nice.

Across the street was a small market where we bought some breakfast items. The hotel owners had offered to make a traditional Cretan breakfast, but it wouldn't be till 9 a.m. which would be too late for the children. Plus, we wanted to head out early. It hurt me to say no, but it was the right decision.
The staff was really nice to the kids. When we came back from the store, they loaned us a great big teddy bear, a smaller stuffed dog, a soccer ball, and a board game. We couldn't quire figure out the board game since it's in Greek. It had parts from several other board games inside. I was surprise to see it's made by Milton Bradley. I guess they make foreign language games as well.

We would soon discover everyone in Crete is extremely generous, a matter of pride for Greeks. We asked for a restaurant recommendation for dinner, which we will visit in the next post...
