Good morning, we are looking at Greece as our next Holiday destination but have never visited before. Family of 3. 2 Adults, 1 7 year old. Ideally Self Catering with a good selection of bars/restaurants and things to keep our son occupied. Any recommendations on resorts would be appreciated and hotels Aswel.

Thanks, John

Hi and welcome to the Crete forum :-) Just a few questions to get started.......what airport or port are you thinking of arriving to (have a look at the thread at the very top of the forum for more)? What type/size of base are you looking for? Also are you planning to stay at your base or are there and sites you would like to visit if so what kind of things do you and see?

Hi, totally unsure of were to arrive. Nothing is booked yet. Late July we would want to arrive. Ideally a nice hotel with a good size pool ( slides would be great) and walking distance or short taxi drive to a main centre. We are totally clueless when it comes to Greece as me or my wife have never visited

If flying in to Heraklion take a look at Stalis and Hersonissos as possible options as a base.
