My wife and I had a week in Almyrida, Crete at this brand new hotel. It’s 15 years since we were on the Greek Islands and whilst there’s more development, eg Chania is over crowded with too many Tavernas and shops around the harbour, the simple sun, sea, beach formula works. Crete’s coastline is superb and the beach at Almyrida lovely for families and couples and just a 30 second walk from Aloe Boutique. Plenty of bars and eateries so be choosy as the quality varies.
The Aloe itself is great - but suggest a room overlooking the pool as some rooms have car park views. The raised plot overviews the swimming pool and allows sea and mountain views. Simple accommodation and in room amenities are supported by a great staff team that benefits from Greek smiles and warm welcomes. Prices are reasonable for drinks and meals and service excellent. It’s a couples hotel so nice and quiet. WiFi free of charge and reasonable quality.
Our only issue is that as half boarders we used the restaurant four times in the week for evening meals and found the food to be no more than adequate when there is the opportunity to serve simple Greek classics well.
Aloe Boutique and Suites - we will be back - thanks for a lovely week. More
