“Simply a cut above”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

In the age of the wide-angle, fish-angle lens and air-brushing, rarely do you expect the camera not to lie…or tell a story! Refreshingly however the photos of The Loft tell it as it is.

As soon as you walk in you feel that little bit special. The thoughtful touches and attention to detail are unexpected, but make every difference. The Loft isn't just beautiful, it's extremely well kitted out, which makes holidaying effortless!

Situated a stone's throw from Lagkada Beach, Bay View Resort is just the other side of Makry Gialos, benefitting from a much more peaceful and quiet location. If you're not in to luxurious lounging by the pool, then head for the beach. Most mornings we had the entire sandy stretch to ourselves! The sea is fantastic for snorkelling and cooling down!

The resort is a very easy walk from Makry Gialos, although perhaps best not attempted between the hours of 12 and 3 when the sun is at its hottest!! En route stop and say Yassas to Konstantina, who sells organic produce from her stall at the side of the road. The water melons, tomatoes and onions were sweeter than any we bought in the supermarket - and she's a great teacher too! We really looked forward to our daily chats, learning new Greek phrases every day.

This was our first family holiday to Crete and we will definitely return one day. The Greek people are so unbelievably welcoming. I could go on and on and on about the highlights, but the best advice I can give is simply to go, explore and enjoy!
