Hotel in Aghios Nikolaos

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 29, 2007

We had a great time in Coral Hotel. The rooms were medium size. We had a beautiful seaside view. All rooms are equipped with A/C, bath or shower, telephone, radio music, satellite TV, hair-dryer, balcony and refrigerator. The food was very good.

Unique Quality: On the roof of the hotel there is a swimmingpool with a snackbar. One night a week there came a Greek dance group. They performed original Greeks dance.

Other tip:
We went to Hotel Coral's sisterhotel: Hermes, next to it. It was also a beautiful hotel!

Rooms by the sea at Kato Zakro

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 19, 2005

We've stayed three or four times in one or another simple room by the sea at Kato Zakro: a place we keep going back to.

There are 3 sets of rooms right on the sea - the Akrogiali taverna acts as 'keyholders' for these. Get there early to be sure of getting a room or try enquiring via the website. There are other rooms, further away from the coast - a nice-looking one near the gorge, but I think some others are really quite far away, and you may get 'lured' to them by the owner: see below!

This is quite a popular daytime desitination with tourists and sometimes parties of schoolkids. There is a Minoan palace here and a beautiful gorge with burial caves high up in its walls: good practice for some of the more challenging gorge walks - though not to be taken lightly itself. Lovely little rocky cove with a few fishing boats and goats on the rocks. I have a whole tip on the place.

The picture shows the beach at Kato Zakro: behind the Tamarisk trees is the taverna which acts as keyholders/agents for the seaside rooms (they expect you to eat in their taverna - this is no hardship). You can just see one of the rooms in the photo. For more pics and info go to:

Important! Make sure you got to the Akrogiali taverna as they are only ones which offered rooms on the sea. The tavernas near the bus stop offer rooms that are not on the sea - some may be fine, but these are not likely to be in such a nice setting. And, take note, they may tell you that all the seafront places are booked: this is not necessarily the case - check * directly* at the Akrogiali. This is a small place so there is competition to make a living here!

Unique Quality: Simple rooms, but clean and comfortable - lovely views from big terraces or balconies (mostly shared) looking over the moonlit sea.

Once the parties go, it is very peaceful - a few good tavernas too and something too called 'Amnesia Music bar' which is never open early in the season, so we've never experienced its charms - a slightly hippy feel to the place at night somehow, but not in an annoying way!
