Creta: Hotel Neptuno Beach, Ammoudara

Here are a few things about the hotel where we have stayed in Crete.

Location on the island. Ammoura is peripheral to Iraklio, and the four star hotel is peripheral to Ammoudara. However, to center Ammoudara it takes about 15 minutes walking (but one difficulty may find a promenade for the evening). Regular local buses pass near the hotel and takes about 10 minutes to center Iraklio. One can easily rent a car and plan trips to Rethymno, Chania, Spinalonga, Cret@aquarium, Leto etc. It is easy to reach Knossos by bus, from Iraklio. The airport is also not far from the hotel (20 minutes by taxi).

Location in Ammoudara. A quiet area, but difficult to reach the rest of the city, due to the traffic on the main road, and the lack of sidewalks :(

Room. Not very big, particularly if adding a bed for the child, but comfortable and clean. Balcony is nice, even if, for most of the rooms, the view is not fantastic. The bathroom might have been better redesigned, but it was OK.

Beach. The hotel is on the beach, and the pool bar offers the same services on the beach as for those at the pool. The sand is not very clean, but the entrance to the see is great.

Food. Excellent for all-inclusive, with a variety of choices, for all tastes and diets.

Entertainment. Great for children. Not very good for the adults. I particularly disliked the two male entertainers.

Overall. A nice holiday, I would recommend the hotel, particularly for couples with children.

The Romanian travel agent. 4utravel offered us good advices, the hotel was exactly what they said it is, their local agent was nice and useful, transfer from airport to hotel and vice versa was well organized (by taxi!).

Sună telefonul, de pe un număr necunoscut, vizibil (adică nu este ascuns), iar o voce de bărbat mă angajează în următoarea convorbire: -  ...
