Aquarius Bar Crete

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Fun and a Great Atmosphere"

LocationPerfect location facing the endless view of the ocean. There's a great beer garden in front of the bar and a good sized music bar with dance floor inside. The only problem is this bar is closer to the ocean but further away from most other bars if you are looking for a bar crawl. But for me this bar is perfect for staying the entire night. It is a music Sports bar. In the daytime it is also open as a coffee shop, so whenever you fancy relaxing with a great atmosphere and luxury setting day or night, this is the place. You can watch the sun set over the ocean from the beer garden every evening! it is a must. Close to the bar are 1 or 2 small restaurants for a nibble and lots of gift...Read More

Taverna Kri Kri

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Chilled Out!! "

Quote:
LocationIt depends on the location of you hotel, whether or not this restaurant is a good location. Unfortunately it is know where near the towns centre. It is approx 20/25 minute walk. However the walk is very pleasant, you walk directly in front of the ocean across the only sand beach in the area and along a nice country path passing many hotels until you are there. The second point is that this Taverna is close to lots of hotels and apartments ranging from 2-5* which is perfect for tourists staying in this area. It also has a sea facing view which is amazing to sit down and relax and look out onto the ocean, islands and boats. It is a family run restaurant and next door is the family ru...Read More

Well where do I start........The fact that only 60 years ago the last person left this island quite interesting so I decided to go and fancied a day trip anyway.We were staying in Agios Nicolaos so we did not need to travel far, just a short work to the port. It was about an hours trip to the island, but the weather was hot and the trip felt relaxed, a great chance to catch some sun.Eventually we reached the island for the tour, to start with the temperature was approx 40+ degrees, very hot, and this island that was inhabited by lepers 60 years ago was just bright sand and rocks with a few plants. Not ideal in this temperature, I felt so uncomfortable with the heat and en...Read More

Hotel | "Great Location hotel/restaurant"

LocationThis hotel is absolutely perfectly placed. It is situated in the most romantic place in the resort where people even get married. The hotel is facing right onto whats none as the bottomless lake (pure crystal blue water) with many small boats circling it, theres a great setting with an eroded cliff with small traditional greek church built into the cliff. The restaurant, coffee shop on upper floor and most rooms face this beautiful view. To the entrance of the hotel is facing one of the busiest market streets with many shops for fake branded cloths, traditional items, souvenirs, refreshments, jewelry( awesome looking jewellry at negotiable prices, some fake some genuine), banks, ec...Read More

Sorrento Bar Crete

Restaurant | "Avoid Like the Plague"

Location Location actually is not to bad, it is close to the central area where most bars/restaurants are located and its one that opens later than others. However in my opinion the location is also a little dangerous. The reason for saying this is that this bar is facing the sea and docking area. Directly in front of the bar is the water and some boats, so if you leave the bar late at night when its dark and you are a little drunk there is a good chance of falling in the water, it is deep and there is NO barrier to stop you, and the road is quite small and on a bend, the footpath is wide enough to fit one small kid. very dangerous position to have an entrance of a bar, u must also check f...Read More

Hermes Hotel

Best Of IgoUgo

Hotel | "A Greek Paradise (If you have the cash to spend!)"

Quote:
LocationThe Hermes Hotel has one of the best locations in Agios Nikolas. It is situated on the sea front with great panoramic views of the ocean and nearby islands. Also to the front of the Hotel is a small road where public buses go through every few hours if you need to get to other points on the island. Throughout the peek of the summer this road is closed due to the amount of tour buses and airport transfers using the road. However there is a bus depot towards the back of the hotel about 10 minutes walk. The hotel also has a private pebble beach with access from the hotel, unique entrance and quite pleasing. From the entrance of the hotel which ever way you turn you have many bar...Read More
