My wife and I arrived in Crete for our first time and were asked to move to this hotel 6 kilometers from the original booking. They promised that we would be upgraded to an "all inclusive" status. In addition they said they would call our tour contact to notify of our new hotel address. This was extremely important because we...

First things first, the pictures do it justice. It is a beautiful resort which was what attracted us in the first place. On arrival (1am), we were greeted by the lovely evening receptionist who offered us a drink and sprted us out. Analypsis is very quiet and too far to walk to hersonnisos so taxis can be booked there and...
